The internet dream of the 1990s is still alive, if you look in the right corners.

More than 17 million Americans regularly use MapQuest, one of the premier digital mapping sites long overtaken by Google and Apple, according to data from research firm Comscore. The dot-com-era internet portal Go.com closed 20 years ago, but its ghost lives on in the “Go” that is part of the web addresses of some Disney sites.

Ask Jeeves, a web search engine that started before Google, still has fans and people who type “Ask Jeeves a question” into Google searches.

You might be kidding AOL, but it’s still the 50th most popular website in the US, according to numbers from SimilarWeb. The Second Life virtual world of the early 2000s never went away and now has a second life as a proto-metaverse brand.

Some online stars of yesteryear have stuck around much longer than expected, showing that it’s possible to carve out a life online long after the celebrity is gone.

“They’re almost cockroach brands,” said Ben Schott, brand and advertising columnist for Bloomberg Opinion. “They are small enough and tough enough not to be killed.”

A comparison with rushing bugs may not seem be a compliment. But there’s something heartwarming about the pioneers who shaped the early days of the Internet, lost their temper and dominance, and finally carved out a place for themselves. They’ll never be as popular or powerful as they were a generation ago, but moldy internet brands could still have a fruitful purpose.

These brands have managed to stay alive through a combination of inertia, nostalgia, the fact that they produced a product people love, digital moneymaking prowess, and the quirks of a rickety internet. If today’s internet powerhouses like Facebook and Pinterest also lose relevance, they could stick around for decades.

System1, which owns MapQuest and HowStuffWorks, among other websites, has a strategy of attracting people to its collection of digital properties through sales pitches or other techniques, turning them into loyal users and earning revenue. money from their clicks or other sales. It’s not far from the web strategy of the early 2000s of turning “eyeballs” into revenue.

Michael Blend, CEO and co-founder of System1, said his company has spent money on internet advertisements to attract people to MapQuest and has also improved its mapping features. A feature added since System1 bought MapQuest from Verizon in 2019 allows delivery couriers to plot long routes with many stops.

Blend said Gen X nostalgia or online marketing might persuade people to try MapQuest once or twice, but the company wanted to make the site useful enough to keep them coming back regularly. He also said more than half of people using MapQuest are young enough to never have experienced it in its prime.

Blend is proud that MapQuest has stuck around for so long. “There are a lot of internet brands that have come and gone and you never hear from them again,” he told me.

I don’t have a good explanation for the resilience of some internet properties from the 1990s. People search for Ask Jeeves even though its owner, internet conglomerate IAC/InterActiveCorp, dropped the English Butler name in 2005 and ceased trying to compete with Google search over a decade ago. The website now called Ask.com is primarily a compilation of entertainment and celebrity news.

A spokesperson for Disney, which once owned the Internet portal Go.com, had no solid explanation as to why some of the company’s Internet sites still had Go fingerprints. (Years ago , The Onion mocked Disney for this.) Typically, today’s websites are often built on remnants of the old Internet, like a modern mansion erected on the foundation of a 19th-century house. .

Schott mentioned something that I can’t get out of my head. He said when a once-loved restaurant chain or industrial plant closes, the typical public reaction is sadness for what people have lost. But Schott said when internet properties like Yahoo and Myspace sag or die, it’s often seen as a joke.

“There’s a weird schadenfreude when tech companies fail, which I don’t think happens to other industries,” he said. “I don’t know what it is.”

Maybe that’s starting to change. When Microsoft retired its 27-year-old Internet Explorer web browser this month, nostalgia poured in. As the internet ages – and those of us who remember its early years as well – the more emotions we might feel for what came before.


  • China’s eyes on its citizens: A New York Times investigation found that surveillance by Chinese authorities is more extensive than previously thought. Police want facial recognition cameras where people eat and shop and even in private spaces like apartment buildings and hotels. Authorities are buying equipment to build large-scale databases of iris and DNA scans. The goal, my colleagues reported, is “to maximize what the state can discover about a person’s identity, activities, and social ties, which could ultimately help the government maintain its authoritarian rule.”

    Watch the survey video here.

  • Complaints about bait and switch: Small business owners say Google has hooked them with free personalized enterprise messaging and other business software and is now demanding payment in a process they found clumsy. “It seemed unnecessarily petty to me,” one business owner told my colleague Nico Grant.

  • Other automakers are envious of Tesla: Established automakers like Ford want to sell more of their cars directly to online shoppers, like Tesla is doing. One problem: Many state laws require cars to be sold through dealerships, writes Paul Stenquist for The Times.

Zuckerberg can’t be allowed to lead the future of the internet https://reservocation.com/zuckerberg-cant-be-allowed-to-lead-the-future-of-the-internet/ Wed, 22 Jun 2022 17:40:00 +0000 https://reservocation.com/zuckerberg-cant-be-allowed-to-lead-the-future-of-the-internet/ JOhn Oliver’s masterful explanation of tech monopolies — and how Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is blocking legislation to reign in them — is a must-read for anyone who cares about innovation. and competition in America.

JOhn Oliver’s masterful explanation of tech monopolies — and how Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is blocking legislation to reign in them — is a must-read for anyone who cares about innovation. and competition in America. He detailed how Apple, Google and Amazon use their core products and market share to crush competitors and break into new businesses while taking advantage of ordinary Americans.

It’s easy for anyone to see that it’s unfair for Amazon to copy a bag that becomes popular on its website and offer its own identical version through Amazon Basics. It’s an example of “self-preference,” the term used to describe the behavior of monopolists who leverage their control of a market to harm those in that market, which Mr. Oliver expertly described.

But Oliver didn’t talk about Meta, who is arguably the biggest winner if Sen. Chuck Schumer chooses not to lift his de facto hold on to the American Innovation and Choice Online Act (AICO), bipartisan reform legislation currently in the Senate that would limit the ability of marketplace owners to exploit their power over market participants. For instance. Amazon has been accused of copying bestsellers on its marketplace and then using platform control to direct traffic to its copy.

Meta’s platforms – Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp – operate marketplaces that at first glance appear different from those of Google, Amazon and Apple. So why is Meta putting unprecedented resources into killing AICO, which appears to be targeting the other Big Tech monopolies? Because just like other Big Tech monopolies, Meta uses self-preference to undermine the viability of small businesses that depend on it.

AICO threatens to unravel some of Meta’s lesser-recognized anti-competitive practices. For example, Facebook prevents users of its chat platforms from communicating with users of other chat platforms. The CEO of a chat startup said there’s “very little innovation in chat” because companies like Facebook are “blocking people from using their product.” You don’t have to take this CEO’s word for it. Facebook actually cut off another messaging service’s access to its infrastructure, fearing it might become a competitor.

The underlying reason why Meta is fighting AICO tooth and nail is this: AICO would stand in the way of Meta implementing its long-term goal of controlling what Mark Zuckerberg describes as the next Internet revolution: the Metaverse.

From 2006 to 2009, I was an advisor at Zuckerberg. I also led my company’s early investments in Facebook. Since then, I’ve written and spoken (again and again) about how the company has gone astray, how its culture, business practices and algorithms undermine public health, democracy, privacy and competition in our economy.

Over forty years in technology, I have witnessed the transformation of the industry from a culture of empowering customers with technology to exploiting human weakness. An industry that was once vibrant and revolutionary is now controlled by half a dozen monopolies whose idea of ​​innovation is to add just enough functionality to keep customers locked in. In many ways, Facebook is a poster child for this change. His journey from a dorm startup to a trillion-dollar business spanned just sixteen years.

Along the way, Facebook has pioneered an entirely new industry, giving people truly new and useful products. Today, it behaves as aging monopolies always do: protecting its turf, copying the best ideas of emerging players, and exploiting consumers instead of serving them. I had a front row seat to the transformation, and I’m here to tell you that Zuckerberg needs to be stopped.

The transformation of America’s tech industry from an engine of growth into a collection of parasitic monopolies has happened over the past fifteen years, slowly at first, then decisively. This happened at a time when there is almost no oversight of tech companies. Facebook has risen to the top of our economy by gobbling up potential rivals WhatsApp and Instagram before they posed a real threat, allowing it to corner the global market for both messaging and photo sharing, creating a moat giants to expand and protect its social media monopoly. media.

Later, Facebook added a “Stories” feature copied from a smaller competitor, Snapchat, and was able to conquer the market on a new way of sharing photos and videos made possible by its ownership of Instagram. Facebook admits to repeating this strategy, trying to look more like TikTok in hopes of preventing this emerging competitor from undermining its monopoly on social media.

Last fall, Facebook suddenly changed its name to Meta, and Zuckerberg gave a demonstration of the Metaverse, which he described as “the next chapter for the internet.” The timing was unexpected and seemed rushed. As it did on the heels of the shocking revelations from whistleblower Frances Haugen, analysts like me have speculated that the name change was a desperate effort to change the subject. It largely worked.

When Zuckerberg says he wants to create “all-day immersive experiences” and says the metaverse “will become the primary way we live our lives and spend our time,” what he’s really saying is that it will build a platform where every participant, from users to partner companies to merchants, will be at its mercy. If AICO is not adopted, Meta will be able to undermine any business or manipulate any user’s choices in the Metaverse. AICO’s philosophy is that a company should be able to own a market or participate in it, but not both.

Meta is incentivized to be open in the early days of the Metaverse to attract partners and users, but Facebook’s history suggests that once it reaches critical mass, the company will engage in anti-competitive behavior. The most likely endgame is a Metaverse where you can only participate with Oculus VR technology, which Meta already has; log in only via a Facebook account, which Meta already has; chat only with Messenger, which Meta already has; and pay for coffee through WhatsApp’s new payment feature, which Meta also has. Meta would likely repeat its past behavior by buying up the most promising innovators in the metaverse, then use its market power to bury the rest, much like Google and Amazon have done on their own platforms.

It is not in the world’s interest for one or more Big Tech companies to control “the next chapter” of the Internet. But that is exactly what is likely if we continue to do nothing.

The good news is that Schumer can partially hold back Zuckerberg and the other tech monopolies with the snap of a finger. AICO would drive technological innovation and provide consumers with better products by suppressing self-preference. The Senate Judiciary Committee has already approved it in a majority bipartisan vote. Bill sounds great in both red and blue states.

Senator Schumer can and should call for a vote on AICO. In doing so, he has a chance to improve the Internet and sharpen America’s technological edge.

Will he seize the opportunity or will he bid Big Tech?

In a hilarious incident, a Delhi man recently ordered onion rings through an online food delivery app but received a raw version.

Taking to Instagram, the man named Ubaidu detailed his plight without words. “Guys, I ordered onion rings and this is what I got,” reads the text in the clip. In the video, Ubaidu is seen simply smiling at the camera and pointing it towards a small container of sliced ​​raw onion.

“Onion as crying is not a metaphor anymore guys,” he wrote in the caption.

The man did not share the name of the restaurant, however, the video left netizens wide-eyed. Its clip revealed that Ubaidu ordered the onion rings for Rs 59. However, what he got was only raw onion slices instead of the fried onion rings.

Viral video | Hornbill’s care for his egg-laying partner is the best Father’s Day story

Since sharing, the video has garnered over 3,300 likes and several comments. Netizens simply couldn’t get enough of the post and flooded the comments section with laughing emojis and their opinions. While some netizens spoke of his “pain,” others told him he received exactly what he ordered.

“That’s why I have trust issues,” wrote one user. “Technically they’re not wrong.. they look like rings cut out of an onion,” added another. “I CAN FEEL THE PAIN BEHIND HIS SMILE,” said the third. “Sadness. But it’s also kinda lol,” the fourth wrote.

Meanwhile, in another hilarious case, a social media post went viral some time ago after the netizen shared an image of a pizza he accidentally ordered without toppings. The Reddit user had ordered a large BBQ Meat Feast pizza, a garlic pizza stick and three special garlic dips from Papa John’s.

However, he had accidentally removed all the toppings from the pizza while filling the order specs, thinking he was adding toppings instead. The no-topping pizza post received over 9,000 upvotes and hundreds of comments.

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) — As new generations of children continue to grow, the presence of the Internet is becoming more of a part of their daily lives.

“Over the past few years, we’ve seen young people become more comfortable and insensitive to sharing private information and images on the Internet,” says agent Jeff Baumgartner.

Jeff Baumgartner is an Altoona Police Department officer and grandfather, who has seen first-hand some of the warning signs of internet abuse among children.

“When kids start protecting their electronics, maybe they’re always hiding their device and making sure that, you know, no one can see their phone,” he said. “A change in behavior, you know, if they’ve kind of withdrawn from friends and family and maybe focused more on using their phone to talk to people.”

With Baumgartner, early and established communication and trust between parent and child is essential to prevent the dangers of the Internet.

“It’s important that parents teach their children that they will have access to these devices and that it’s okay for parents to check them regularly,” he said. “You know, that doesn’t mean a lack of confidence, but I think it’s just good parenting to pay attention to what your kids are doing.”

Altoona’s parents, Robert and Elizabeth Chanell, have successfully used safety strategies like these with their children.

“My wife is all about the planning and I would say keep the computer in the living space and not in the bedroom,” Robert Chanell said. “We believe in checking the history and making sure they’re not watching things that are going to be detrimental to them.”

“With my own kids, I have to tell them all the time, guys, if there’s an ad, you have to skip the ads,” Elizabeth Chanell said.

While the internet can be helpful, Elizabeth Chanell says, “The internet shouldn’t be used as a babysitter.”

The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force has published a guide to help parents who are concerned that their children are using the Internet in dangerous ways.

Amid the escalating Moscow-Kyiv war, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk last week delivered an additional batch of Starlink satellite kits to the Ukrainian Armed Forces for extended internet coverage. The recent procurement brought total deliveries of the Starlink communications system to more than 15,000 units since the war began on February 24. In a slideshow video tweeted by the billionaire entrepreneur on June 6, Musk announced a tentative number of broadband service units for the first time. sent to Ukraine for maintaining stable internet connectivity.

Midway through the video, Musk said, “Over 15,000 Starlinks (have been) delivered to Ukraine.” The video also showed an image of the bulk satellite systems. However, it is unclear whether the photo was taken before or after delivery to Ukraine.

Earlier in March, SpaceX chief operating officer Gwynne Shotwell gave a rough idea of ​​the number of satellite units supplied to Ukraine in a conversation with CNBC. Without giving a specific figure, she said about “thousands” of systems have been delivered to Kyiv since February. Later in April, NBC News reported that SpaceX donated around 10,000 terminals to Ukraine during the war.

Starlink satellite technology at the service of Ukrainian drone units

Earlier, it was reported that Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite technology was helping an elite Ukrainian drone unit destroy Russian weapons, according to The Times of London. The Aerorozvidka, which is a Ukrainian ground forces unit specializing in aerial reconnaissance and drone warfare, uses drones equipped with infrared cameras to observe Russian military equipment such as tanks and command ships at night. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed his gratitude to Musk for Starlink systems that helped Ukraine “overcome Russian propaganda” by enabling stable access to internet service for Ukrainians living in blackout areas.

What is Starlink Satellite?

Starlink terminals are designed to communicate with a satellite in low Earth orbit. The design works in such a way that the ground receiver does not need to have a fixed wired connection. This is how the company plans to provide a stable high-speed internet connection in rural areas that wired broadband service providers might not be able to reach. Musk’s Starlink is said to have over 5 lakh users in 32 countries.

June 2022 Patch Tuesday Predictions: Internet Explorer Fades into the Sunset https://reservocation.com/june-2022-patch-tuesday-predictions-internet-explorer-fades-into-the-sunset/ Fri, 10 Jun 2022 05:25:37 +0000 https://reservocation.com/june-2022-patch-tuesday-predictions-internet-explorer-fades-into-the-sunset/ May 2022 Patch Tuesday delivered the final builds of several Windows 10 operating systems and this month we’ll see the final update for Internet Explorer 11.

May 2022 Patch Tuesday delivered the final builds of several Windows 10 operating systems and this month we’ll see the final update for Internet Explorer 11. But don’t go on a family vacation thinking that there will be less work to do when you return. with fewer products to support, we have an actively exploited vulnerability to address and normal early release of updates.

This month’s hot topic is CVE-2022-30190, also known as the Follina vulnerability. This vulnerability in Microsoft Windows Support Diagnostic Tool (MSDT) allows remote code execution. This diagnostic tool returns troubleshooting information to Microsoft when you encounter a problem on your local computer.

The vulnerability is exploited through malicious code embedded in a Word document, and what makes it particularly troublesome is that the user doesn’t even need to open the document directly. Any Office program that provides preview mode will trigger the exploit. This vulnerability has been under attack for several months.

Interestingly, Microsoft has only assigned this vulnerability a CVSS rating of 7.8 and an Important severity. Although they provided advice on protection, they did not commit to a fixed timetable. We should all monitor this closely, take risk-based mitigations to our systems, and quickly deploy the update if/when available.

I mentioned last month that Internet Explorer is officially ending (almost) on June 15th. If you still need IE 11 for critical business features, Microsoft recommends using IE mode in the Edge browser. This feature is planned to be supported in Edge until 2029. Please see this Microsoft FAQ for more details on this app’s end of life.

Windows 10 1909 Enterprise and Education, 20H2 Professional, and Windows Server 20H2 reached end of support last Tuesday. You should migrate to a fully supported desktop or server version as soon as possible to minimize your exposure.

Make sure someone is watching “the store” if you’re taking a family vacation. The news is full of recent attacks and exploitations. Symbiote software invades Linux systems, infects running processes and steals critical data. A phishing operation on Facebook and Messenger led millions of users to an infected portal where they entered their credentials and viewed advertisements to generate revenue.

Emotet malware has resurfaced and is distributing other malware packages on compromised systems. Just because we’re stepping away from the patch game for a while doesn’t mean our opponents are also taking time off.

June 2022 Patch Tuesday Predictions

  • We hope to see a fix for CVE-2022-30190 in OS updates this month. These should also include updates for Office and Sharepoint Server. Exchange Server and .NET Framework were updated last month so we can take a break there. It’s been a while since we’ve had a SQL Server update on Patch Tuesday, so maybe one will surface?
  • Adobe Acrobat and Reader were last updated in April, so be on the lookout for a minor update this month. If not, we should have a major on Tuesday of the July patch.
  • A macOS Big Sur security update was released today, so a Monterey release may be imminent. Monterey’s latest security update arrived in mid-May. Either way, make sure your Big Sur systems are up to date.
  • Google today released both the Desktop Stable Channel and Extended Stable Channel updates numbered 102.0.5005.115. The beta channel for ChromeOS was updated yesterday, so the stable version could be updated next week.
  • Firefox, Firefox ESR, and Thunderbird were all updated on May 31. I would expect a minor update next week for these apps.

Internet Explorer has been a stable version of the Windows operating system for so long that it’s hard to believe it’s finally going away. Enjoy your holidays!

Millions of Americans don’t even have access to basic broadband, depriving them of opportunities for employment and connection to the rest of the world. Estimates suggest that a whopping 19 million people living in the United States do not have access to high-speed internet.

“We have no way of making sure students are in the right classes at the right time,” said Lynn Manning-John, vice-principal of the K-12 school, speaking of the school’s internet outages. . “We want fiber, we want 5G, we want the latest technology, but we’re so isolated that it’s hard for telecom companies to bring their employees here,” she added.

At the end of a school year that has strained educators and families, a supportive dad has brought the internet together.

The father shouted an individual cheer for each student during a high school graduation in Colleyville, Texas. His daughter Marlaina Capetillo shared clips of him calling students’ names in a TikTok video on May 30, racking up more than 586,000 views.

“Dad applauds ALL grads on the Colleyville roster,” Capetillo captioned the post.

The video showed his father, identified as Mario, shouting out the names of the students after the announcer called them to claim their diplomas. Capetillo captured him cheering the names “Jackson”, “Aliyah”, “Sean”, “Reid”, “Connor”, “John” and “Zachary” as proudly as if they were his own children.

But that was just a snippet of her support, she said, scanning her camera across the “Class of 2022” brochure filled with hundreds of names.

“He said each of those names was followed by a knee,” Capetillo noted.

After all the names were called, Mario immediately stood up and led the audience in a standing ovation.

The 2021-2022 school year has seen children’s education become a site of political and social conflict across the United States.

In March, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed legislation dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, which prohibits “classroom discussions about sexual orientation or gender identity at certain grade levels. or in a specific way”. The bill has been protested by public schools and employee walkouts and condemned by top executives at companies like Disney, with activists saying it would harm LGBTQ+ students.

Meanwhile, a vicious debate over the academic framework of Critical Race Theory (CRT), which examines the intersections of racism with politics, culture and law, has propelled dozens of bills banning teaching of CRT in schools. A disproportionate number of authors affected by the bans were black and LGBTQ+.

In addition to these fights, disputes over COVID-19 mask mandates in schools have sparked protests across the country.

And school shootings have torn the heart of the country, with the recent massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde becoming the deadliest shooting since Sandy Hook in 2012.

In this difficult context, netizens were relieved to see a father who highlighted the beauty of children, families and teachers coming together to celebrate academic success.

This is amazing. Some graduates have no one to encourage them.

Reddit Comment

“It’s amazing. Some grads don’t have anyone to cheer them on,” one viewer wrote.

“My dad didn’t attend any of my graduations, including college,” said another. “If your daddy cried my name, it would be [have] meant the world to me!”

A third onlooker agreed: “Protect this man. I had one person to cheer me on, that’s the father some of them didn’t have.”

Newsweek has contacted Capetillo for comment.
