Dan Goodin for Ars Technica: The privacy invasion is the result of the apps repeatedly reading any text that happens to reside in clipboards, which computers and other devices use to store data that has been cut or copied from things like password managers and email programs I love that Apple have started to notify […]
BBC Money Box reports: Ofcom also found most people who use an address provided by their broadband company are former BT customers. BT says if customers want to switch provider but keep hold of their old BT email address they’re charged £7.50 per month to be able to access and use their account like they […]
I’ve not yet paid for a Hey.com subscription as I’m a strong believer in owning your own domain name for email, but I have to admit I that find their style of business a welcome change to the norm and reminiscent of what I can only imagine the counter-culture inspired Apple must have been like […]
