After medical marijuana, Sidecar eyes alcohol and pharmaceuticals

Earlier this month, Sidecar expanded its mobile ride hailing service to deliver medical marijuana in San Francisco. Its not the only substance the startup wants to bring to your door.

Sidecar is in talks with potential partners to deliver alcohol and pharmaceutical drugs to its users, said CEO Sunil Paul. And in case youre craving them badly, it will get them to you in an hour. Its not yet delivering those items but plans to by the end of the year, Paul said in an interview Wednesday.

Sidecars ride hailing service works similarly to that of Uber and Lyft, with a few differences. The app lets riders choose from a list of drivers who are able to set their own fares. And the company claims to be more transparent than rivals when surge pricing is in effect, specifying the exact fare up front. Still, Sidecar hasnt proved as popular as Uber and Lyft and is active in far fewer cities.

The cost of a data breach has jumped 23 percent in two years

Data breaches like the one just disclosed by the IRS arent something any organization wishes for, but theres now even bigger financial incentive to avoid them than in the past.

The average cost of a data breach has increased by 23 percent over the past two years to $3.79 million, according to a report Wednesday from IBM and the Ponemon Institute. And the average cost for each lost of stolen record containing sensitive information increased 6 percent over just the past year, from $145 to $154.

Microsoft app store gets a spring clean before Windows 10 launch

Microsoft is cleaning house in the Windows Store, enacting policies that could see some apps removed as it tries to reduce clutter and ensure fair pricing ahead of the Windows 10 launch later this year.

The new policies, designed to make it easier for users to find quality apps, will also clamp down on developers who abuse keywords to game the Stores search results.

First off, Microsoft wants to ensure users can distinguish between different apps, which means developers will need to use icons that accurately reflect what a program does, and that arent too similar to other app icons in the store. The same rules will apply to application titles, and to application functionality.

Judge classifies as class action an email scanning lawsuit against Yahoo

A lawsuit that alleges Yahoos email scanning practices are illegal can proceed as a class action complaint, a development that will shine the spotlight on the Yahoo Mail use of messages content for advertising purposes.

Plaintiffs allege that emails sent to Yahoo Mail users by people who do not have Yahoo Mail accounts are scanned by Yahoo in violation of federal and California wiretapping laws.

In a decision Tuesday evening, Judge Lucy Koh said all U.S. residents who are not Yahoo Mail subscribers but who have sent emails to or received emails from a Yahoo Mail subscriber between Oct. 2, 2011, and now may sue the company.

California residents who are not Yahoo Mail subscribers but who have sent emails to or received emails from a Yahoo Mail subscriber between Oct. 2, 2012, and now may sue the company, according to the judges filing in the U.S. district court in the northern district of California.

IBM Watson gets smart in the oil refinery business

Australian energy company Woodside Energy hopes to strike a gusher in its own backyarda gusher of information, that is.

The company plans to improve the efficiency of its refinery plants by using IBMs Watson cognitive computing services to gather and share insights from its own engineers.

Woodside wants to take the knowledge of their senior engineers and make it available, with the support of Watson, to a broader range of employees, said Ed Harbour, IBM vice president of the companys Watson Group.

The two companies will partner to create a search engine, or cognitive advisory service that can be used by Woodsides engineering teams to ask complex questions about facilities management and design, according to IBM.

Chip maker Avago may be close to buying Broadcom

Avago Technologies is in advanced talks to acquire Broadcom in a potential deal that could mark the latest consolidation in the global semiconductor industry, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

Broadcom makes chips for a wide range of communications products, including wired and wireless networks, connected home and car equipment and the Internet of Things. Avagos silicon goes into industrial and enterprise storage gear as well as wireline and wireless networks. Avago, founded in 1961, is based in San Jose, California, and Singapore. Broadcom is in Irvine, California, and started in 1991.

New FCC rules would crack down on spam texts and unwanted calls

New rules proposed by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission aim to give owners of mobile phones more tools to protect themselves against unwanted text messages and phone calls.

The proposal, from FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, would close some loopholes in the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA), a law that restricts telemarketing, but has allowed some marketers, bill collectors and other businesses to make hundreds of unwanted calls, or send hundreds of unwanted text messages to some mobile and telephone customers.

Few things rankle consumers as much as unwanted calls and texts, Wheeler said in a blog post. The responsibility to protect consumers from robocalls that can be both costly and intrusive does not expire with changes in technology.

Chevrolet will have 14 cars in its 2016 model year with Android Auto compatibility, General Motors CEO Mary Barra announced at the Code conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., on Wednesday. This will be the largest number of vehicles from any automaker so far to feature Google's smartphone-car solution, which was announced almost a year ago at the Google I/O developer conference in San Francisco.

There's a small catch: Android Auto will come later to cars that feature only the 8-inch MyLink infotainment system (as noted in the list, below). The other listed cars will also have a 7-inch system available, and Android Auto will come first to cars equipped with those smaller-size systems.

Microsoft's handy Office Lens scanner app for Android leaves beta

Microsofts Office Lens scanner app for Android came out of beta Wednesday and joined the Google Play Store after almost two months of testing, marking the next step in the companys push to bring its services to a wide variety of platforms beyond Windows.

The app, which was released as a preview in early April, allows users to turn their smartphones into scanners that connect to OneNote and OneDrive. Once opened, the app will detect the corners of a document, screen or other rectangular media (even those placed at an angle) and then allow users to capture them. After scanning a document, Office Lens will use optical character recognition (OCR) to recognize printed text and make the resulting image searchable.

Google's Roboto typeface is now open source

Roboto, the signature font for Android and Chrome, is Googles latest free gift to the world.

Google announced that the Roboto font family is now open source, and has posted the entire code on Github. This means that not only are you allowed to use Roboto without running into any copyright issues, but you can tweak and modify it for your own purposes.

The story behind the story: Google first introduced Roboto with Android Jelly Bean 4.0. Since then its become the default font for both Android and Chrome, and has become a major stylistic component of Googles identity with its Material Design aesthetic. The open source move aligns with Googles approach to most of its products: making them free and customizable, while hopefully garnering goodwill and community feedback.

Senate to return early to debate Patriot Act phone dragnet

The U.S. Senate will return early from a week-long recess in a last-ditch effort to extend provisions of the Patriot Act that the National Security Agency have used to collect millions of domestic telephone records over the past nine years.

The Senate is scheduled to resume debating whether to extend or amend Section 215 of the Patriot at 4 p.m. ET Sunday, hours before that part of the counterterrorism law is due to expire. The Senate was previously scheduled to return from an extended Memorial Day break on Monday, but Section 215 of the Patriot Act expires at 12:01 a.m. that day.

Its unclear what direction the Senate debate will take. As of Wednesday morning, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell hadnt announced what votes will be taken Sunday evening.

Google Play Store update hints at kids' accounts, makes layout tweaks

Google is doing more prep work for the impending launch of child-friendly accounts in the Play Store.

An APK teardown by Android Police found more code references to family-friendly results and an underage purchase disclaimer in the version 5.6.6 update.

This points to more under-the-hood changes before Google launches its family-friendly app selection, possibly as soon as this week at Google I/O. The code strings indicate a curated search feature that would filter out unsavory apps and games while when children search for titles.

AdBlock Plus declared legal (again) by a German court

For the second time in two months a German court has ruled that Adblock Plus, the browser extension for filtering ads, is legal.

On Wednesday the Munich Regional Court ruled against media companies ProSiebenSat1 and IP Deutschland, the company behind media group RTL. The companies sued Eyeo, the company behind Adblock Plus, and wanted the court to ban the distribution of the free ad-blocking software, claiming it hurts their ad-based business model.

Adblock Plus lets users block annoying ads. It does however let some acceptable ads through the filter, a practice the company has been criticized for because it lets companies like Amazon, Google and Microsoft pay to get on the filters white list. The plugin lets users block all ads if they want to, though.

EU plans mandatory cross-border rules to fight corporate tax evasion

In a bid to fight tax avoidance by international business behemoths like Amazon and Apple, the European Commission is proposing mandatory rules to make companies pay taxes to all the countries in which they generate profit.

The Commission on Wednesday unveiled plans to overhaul the European Unions outdated tax system, proposing that a link between taxation and the places where companies actually do business needs to be established, said Valdis Dombrovskis, Commission vice president responsible for economic and financial affairs.

International companies have been striking favorable tax deals with low-tax countries like Ireland and Luxembourg. The deals allow them to funnel profit through subsidiaries established there and avoid paying most corporate taxes in the EU.
