AT&T top buyer at U.S. airwaves auction; Dish spends big
An AT&T Logo is pictured on the side of a building in PasadenaWASHINGTON/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - AT&T Inc spent close to half the total in the record-setting U.S. sale of airwaves for mobile data, with Dish Network Corp spending heavily to manage a surprise win at No.2 ahead of Verizon, results showed on Friday. AT&T bid a total of $18.2 billion to win licenses of so-called AWS-3 spectrum. Dish itself did not win any licenses, but had invested in bidding partners SNR Wireless LicenseCo LLC and Northstar Wireless LLC, which bid a total of $13.3 billion. The two companies, backed also by financial firms including BlackRock Inc but with little to no revenue, had applied to receive a discount as small-business entities, bringing their net bid amount to $10 billion.
Google to change privacy policy after investigation by UK data watchdog
A Google search page is reflected in sunglasses in this photo illustration taken in BrusselsSearch engine Google has agreed to better inform users about how it handles their personal information after an investigation by Britain's data protection regulator found its privacy policy was too vague. The Information Commissioner's Office said in a statement that it required Google to sign a "formal undertaking" that it would make the changes by June 30 and take further steps in the next two years. The ICO investigation stems from a privacy policy implemented by Google in March 2012 that consolidated some 70 existing privacy policies into one and pooled data collected on individual users across its services, including YouTube, Gmail and its social network Google+.
Uber will improve privacy, data security following report
An illustration picture shows the logo of car-sharing service app Uber on a smartphone next to the picture of an official German taxi signBy Sarah McBride SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Ride service Uber, which is trying to enhance its image after several controversies, on Friday released the findings of a report on its handling of passenger data and said it would act on all the report's recommendations for improvements. Lawyers at Hogan Lovells, who wrote the report commissioned and paid for by Uber, found that the smartphone app-enabled service had appropriate guidelines and procedures in place for internal access control, data security and data retention. The report said Uber could improve privacy and data security by taking steps such as providing training for employees, making policies easier for customers to understand, and tightening access controls. Management at the San Francisco-based company, which announced the report's findings in a blog post, said on Friday it had already begun putting the recommendations into effect.
Alibaba meets with China regulator, controversial report retracted
Ma, Founder and Executive Chairman of Alibaba Group, gestures during the session 'An Insight, An Idea with Jack Ma' in the Swiss mountain resort of Davos(Reuters) - The head of China's commerce regulator met with Alibaba Group Holding Ltd chairman Jack Ma on Friday to discuss combating fake products, the official Xinhua news agency reported, with the two adopting a conciliatory tone after a row over illegal business on the Internet company's platforms. The meeting took place the same day the regulator, the State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC), backtracked on an earlier report that had excoriated the Chinese online commerce company for not doing enough to suppress counterfeiting on its websites. SAIC issued what it called a "white paper" on Wednesday saying many products sold on Alibaba's websites infringed on trademarks, or were banned, substandard or fake. "The most recent SAIC posting speaks for itself.
IBM brings back bonuses for top execs even as profits slide
A man passes by an illuminated IBM logo at the CeBIT computer fair in HanoverBy Bill Rigby SEATTLE (Reuters) - International Business Machines Corp brought back annual performance bonuses for its chief executive and her top lieutenants for 2014 despite falling profits and a tumbling stock price, a regulatory filing showed on Friday. The technology company, which has posted lower revenue for 11 quarters in a row as it struggles to transform itself into a cloud-based software and services company, withheld annual bonuses in 2013 at the executives' own request. The bonuses returned as a feature of IBM's executive compensation for 2014, according to a document filed with securities regulators on Friday, despite the fact that IBM's net profit from continuing operations fell 7 percent last year and its stock shed about 14 percent. IBM CEO Virginia Rometty will get a $3.6 million annual incentive payout for 2014, according to the filing.
Uber probed by U.S. judge on driver benefits
Photo illustration of logo of car-sharing service app Uber on a smartphone over a reserved lane for taxis in a street in MadridBy Dan Levine SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A U.S. judge appeared skeptical on Friday about Uber's bid for a quick pretrial ruling that its drivers are contractors and not employees, a critical question facing Silicon Valley's sharing economy. App-based ride service Uber, and smaller rival Lyft, face separate lawsuits seeking class action status in San Francisco federal court, brought on behalf of drivers who contend they are employees and entitled to reimbursement for expenses, including gas and vehicle maintenance. At a court hearing on Friday, U.S. District Judge Edward Chen said Uber's bid for a pretrial ruling its drivers are contractors is a "tough argument" to make, given that the drivers serve Uber's business goals.

Researchers may have found the most ingenious way yet to generate solar power
Researchers may have found the most ingenious way yet to generate solar powerSolar energy is definitely taking off and now researchers may have come up with the absolute best way to generate cheap solar power by installing solar panels in public parking lots. Rooftop solar power is making coal obsolete in Australia The Washington Post reports that solar power proponents are increasingly turning their eyes toward America’s parking lots as the perfect locations for mass solar panel installations. The reasons for this are easy to understand: Parking lots taking up huge chunks of our landscape and absorb a ton of heat in hot weather. Why not put them to good use by installing solar panels over them? The one big issue, the Post says, is that such solar panel installations

Google Earth’s premium features are now free for everyone
Google Earth’s premium features are now free for everyoneGoogle Earth probably isn’t your go-to Google app on a day-to-day basis, but it’s a fun tool to mess with when you want to explore a foreign country or take a virtual road trip across the Midwest.

Magic Leap's futuristic patent art was copied from other artists' designs
Magic Leap's futuristic patent art was copied from other artists' designsWhen Google-backed augmented reality company Magic Leap quietly applied for a patent, it did so with dozens of pages of futuristic (and slightly creepy) scenarios: a social media charm bracelet, a gargoyle bursting out of a box in a store, gamified cucumber chopping... As it turns out, Magic Leap's patent art isn't so much its vision of the future as one created by various students and designers. If patents are about originality, does this mean Magic Leap is hurting its claims? In this case, Magic Leap is patenting an optical system that has nothing to do with the interfaces displayed here.

Comcast just got a major ego boost from the FCC
Comcast just got a major ego boost from the FCCOn Thursday, the Federal Communications Commission voted in favor of a new standard for broadband Internet. From now on, anything less than 25Mbps downstream and 1Mbps upstream is no longer considered broadband — but there has been one unexpected (and perhaps unwanted) victor as result. As of January 29th, Comcast’s broadband market share is now greater than 50%. READ MORE: Comcast is sorry it called customer an ‘a**hole’ on their bill According to a Comcast filing from December 2014 regarding the upcoming Time Warner Cable merger, the provider noted that it would control “56.8 percent excluding mobile broadband and 44.7 percent including mobile broadband,” reports Ars Technica. So how does Comcast already have a 50% market share on broadband without

Cassiopeia A: The Surprise Inside an Exploding Star
Cassiopeia A: The Surprise Inside an Exploding StarSupernovas, the violent explosions of massive stars after they have exhausted their nuclear fuel, have long been one of the most fascinating mysteries of the universe. Rather than having uniform layers of ejected material, the new 3-D map found the supernova remnant has frothy cavities that were possibly created by radioactive nickel during the explosion that decays to form iron. In a star that is massive enough, the star explodes in a supernova when it runs out of nuclear fuel, combining lighter elements through fusion reactions until it reaches iron, at which point the star's inner core collapses. A supernova is so violent and bright that many can be observed with the naked eye and are a common occurrence in our universe.
Before Uber revolutionizes labor, it's going to have to explain these embarrassing emails
Before Uber revolutionizes labor, it's going to have to explain these embarrassing emailsEarlier this week, New York Times columnist Farhad Manjoo predicted that Uber's biggest impact on the world would not be in transforming transportation, but in changing the labor market and the way we think about work. Uber's explosion is the envy of employers everywhere. Uber marketed itself as a technological innovation, not a car company, and classified its drivers as independent contractors — selling them on the arrangement by promising flexible work hours and the freedom to be their own boss. Before this labor revolution can take place, Uber will have to prove its world-changing business model isn't screwing over drivers. Two lawsuits filed by a group of drivers, one against Uber and Lyft (a smaller, rival e-hailing company), filed on behalf of drivers are currently winding their way through San Francisco federal court.
Finding the real Kurt Cobain: a conversation with documentary director Brett Morgen
Finding the real Kurt Cobain: a conversation with documentary director Brett MorgenThe Sundance documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck is far from a traditional biopic. Directed by Brett Morgen, the filmmaker behind movies like The Kid Stays in the Picture and the Rolling Stones documentary Crossfire Hurricane, it eschews conventional narrative in an attempt to bring audiences inside the mind of Cobain through his paintings, personal recordings, journals, and some disturbing home video footage. I sat down with Morgen during the festival to talk about the origins of the project, the absence of Dave Grohl (he appears only in archival footage), and a striking animated sequence which uses Cobain’s recorded recollection of how he lost his virginity and almost committed suicide during his teenaged years. When did you hear Nirvana for the first time?
