China's Didi Kuaidi ups stakes in taxi apps war
By Paul Carsten BEIJING (Reuters) - China's dominant taxi-hailing firm Didi Kuaidi will spend 1 billion yuan ($161.39 million) on promotions, the company said on Friday, in an aggressive expansion that will help lure in riders and fend of rivals like U.S. firm Uber Technologies Inc. Alongside the basic cab calling function, users of the Didi Kuaidi app will have access to premium cars, carpooling, designated drivers and a service for passengers with special needs, the company said in a statement. The goal is to serve 30 million people a day within three years, Cheng Wei, CEO of Didi Kuaidi, said. If the strategy succeeds, Didi Kuaidi - backed by rival Internet giants Tencent Holdings Ltd and Alibaba Group Holding Ltd - could hammer the final nail into the coffin of its competitors in China.

Toshiba extends accounting probe to three more business units
Logo of Toshiba Corp is seen as people are reflected on a window at the company's Hydrogen Energy R&D Center after its opening ceremony in TokyoJapan industrial conglomerate Toshiba Corp said on Friday it would investigate accounting practices in its TV, computer and chip businesses, extending a probe already under way into irregularities that led to profits being overstated by at least $415 million in recent years. The move comes after Toshiba last week set up a third-party committee, headed by a former prosecutor, to conduct an independent inquiry in addition to its own internal investigation into accounting problems related to infrastructure and construction work. Toshiba said previously it was likely to mark down operating profit by at least 50 billion yen ($415 million) for the three years through March 2014 after it found inappropriate reporting of some infrastructure project costs and construction work.

Six months ago, he was just a redheaded 19-year-old with a nice voice. The last five months have been one continual ascent for Anti Social Media. If they win enough votes, they’ll stay on through Saturday night’s final, with a shot at bringing the Eurovision crown back to Denmark, a three-time champion.

Once again, we have to tip our cap in grudging admiration for the lengths the National Security Administration will go to hack into our mobile devices. The Intercept has published some new documents leaked by Edward Snowden that show how the NSA and other spy agencies at one point planned to conduct man-in-the-middle attacks between end users and Android app stores to infect users’ phones with spyware.

Need for Speed reboot trailer brings the series back underground
Need for Speed: Most Wanted was one of my favorite games of the last generation. It’s the second best open world racing game ever made (after the inimitable Forza Horizon 2), but its follow-up, Need for Speed Rivals, just didn’t connect with me. I wanted something even bigger and more impressive, but what I got was a conservative step into the new console generation. A year and a half later, developer Ghost Games is back with another Need for Speed, and the first teaser just went live.
