Zuckerberg: Facebook in 'arms race' against electoral interference

In his first UK broadcast interview in five years, he said that Facebook had been unprepared for state-sponsored interference in 2016.

No shit, Sherlock.

On the coronavirus pandemic, Mr Zuckerberg said that while Facebook had and would remove any content that would likely result in "immediate harm" to users it would not stop groups alleging that the infection was state sponsored or connected to the launch of the new digital 5G network.

These conspiracy theories are fuelling idiotic behaviour, so really it's just business as usual for Facebook then.

Google Doodle: Israel Kamakawiwoʻole's 61st birthday

His version of 'Over the Rainbow' is my favourite. Not sure if I'd heard it before visiting Hawaii but it's the one I've heard the most since.

If you haven't seen Pixar's Lava, it features a song sung in the same style as Israel.

Department of Justice reopens spat with Apple over iPhone encryption

John Gruber:

Saying you want technology companies to make a backdoor that only “good guys” can use is like saying you want guns that only “good guys” can fire. It's not possible, and no credible cryptographer would say that it is. You might as well say that you want Apple to come up with a way for 1 + 1 to equal 3.

Let's be real, this is really what the US' take on encryption is:

Encryption means we can't find out why a bad guy did something bad. But we don't mind if they buy semi-automatic weapons giving them the tools to carry out mass murders.

Baffling. Tackle the cause of the issue to prevent these things happening instead of reacting after the event and pushing a shitty agenda that weakens the security of every individual.
