Wells Fargo wants employees to delete TikTok from company phones

A separate New York Times report claimed that Amazon told employees to remove the social networking application from devices that can access company email. The note reportedly warned them, as well, that they need to uninstall TikTok by Friday for email access to continue. However, an Amazon spokesperson told Engadget that the email was sent to some of its employees “in error” and that there’s no change to its policies “right now with regard to TikTok.”

The lip-syncing app has been under scrutiny due to concerns raised about Bytedance, its parent company that’s based in Beijing. US authorities are worried about the possibility that Bytedance could be compelled to share data with the Chinese government under the country’s laws. In India, officials even banned the app completely. TikTok denied that it has ever been asked to provide user data to the Chinese government, though, and even pulled out of Hong Kong after China’s new security laws that strengthen internet surveillance in the region came into effect.

Trump confirms cyberattack against Russian trolls during 2018 midterms

The 2018 US attack on Russia was reportedly meant to disrupt efforts to cast doubt on the legitimacy of midterm results, which saw the Democrats regain control of the House of Representatives.

The confirmation is a change of tune for Trump. He previously claimed that Russia had stopped cyberattacks agains the US and has supported Russian President Vladimir Putin’s denials of interference in the 2016 election despite evidence. Here, Trump is directly confirming at least one Russian interference attempt.

It’s not certain how Russia will respond to Trump’s statement, although history suggests it’s unlikely to acknowledge the IRA’s activities. As it stands, American intelligence agencies and internet giants have shifted much of their attention to potential Russian actions during the 2020 election — those officials and companies will want to know if Trump’s statement will lead to a similar crackdown.

Tesla drops Model Y price by $3,000

Tesla just gave would-be Model Y buyers an unexpected treat: a sudden price drop. Electrek has discovered that Tesla lowered the cost of a Long Range AWD variant by $3,000 to $49,990 before taxes and incentives. The electric crossover still isn’t a trivial purchase at that price, but it might be easier to justify if the earlier price was just a little too hard to swallow.

There are perks if you’re willing to spend more, too. The Performance trim (priced at $59,990) now includes the previously optional Performance Package as standard. That nets you a higher 155MPH top speed, 21-inch wheels, upgraded brakes, a lowered suspension and aluminum alloy pedals. You will take a hit in range due to those wheels, down from 316 miles on the Long Range to 291 miles, but this saves you money if you were already set on getting a maxed-out Model Y.

US court finds Russian national guilty of hacking LinkedIn, Dropbox

A San Francisco jury has found Russian national Yevgeniy Nikulin guilty of one of the biggest data breaches in US history. Nikulin has been convicted of hacking LinkedIn and Dropbox back in 2012, which resulted in the theft of 117 million usernames and passwords that he tried to sell to other people on Russian—language forums. He was also found guilty of trafficking Formspring data. The massive breach served as a catalyst for Dropbox to roll out two-factor authentication and an automated feature that checks on suspicious activity.

Nikulin was arrested in the Czech Republic and charged with nine felony counts back in 2016. He has since been incarcerated in various jails. Both the US and Russia submitted extradition requests for him, but the Czech Republic ultimately decided to extradite him to the US in 2018.

Devolver made a free game about a canceled game convention

E3 and virtually every other in-person gaming expo for 2020 has been canceled due to the pandemic, but that isn’t preventing Devolver Digital from doing something to fill the void in a very self-referential way. It just released a free Devolverland Expo game on Steam that — what else? — has you sneaking through a canceled convention. It’s ultimately a plug for upcoming games like Shadow Warrior 3 and Carrion, but it’s a real game that has you dodging “advanced security systems” to watch videos and find secrets.

The game itself isn’t violent (unless you count the kind of gun you’d use to shoot t-shirts), but the videos you see generally won’t be suited for kids.

Microsoft and Google team up to bring more web apps to the Play Store

Microsoft’s support for Android is going beyond native apps and devices like the Surface Duo. Thurrot reports Microsoft is collaborating with Google to help bring more (and importantly, better) progressive web apps to Android devices through the Play Store. Apps built using Microsoft’s PWABuilder tool will use Google’s Bubblewrap utility and library to take advantage of new features, including a new standard for web shortcuts, “deeper” push notifications and visual customizations. Web apps should feel more at home on your phone, to put it simply.

The expanded features shouldn’t require significantly more effort to implement, Microsoft said.

The first laptop with Apple’s ARM chip could be the 13-inch MacBook Pro

Apple’s first Mac with its own ARM processor will be the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via iMore). He believes that production of that model will start in Q4 of 2020, with an A-series powered MacBook Air arriving shortly afterwards either in Q4 2020 or early 2021. Apple will also release 14- and 16-inch versions of the MacBook Pro with its own silicon that will enter production in Q2 or Q3 of 2021.

Apple already said that it would ship its first ARM-powered Macs by the end of 2020, but the big mystery was which model would arrive first. It was logical to expect a more lightly powered, lower-stakes productivity PC like a 12-inch MacBook or MacBook Air. With a MacBook Pro, however, folks will reasonably expect to do heavier chores like photo and video editing.

‘Leaked’ video teases a drift-modified Mustang Mach-E

Ford’s all-electric Mustang Mach-E hasn’t rolled out yet, but someone is working on a special one-off, judging by a video posted to YouTube a few days ago. As noted by Autoblog and Jalopnik, this stripped down machine is obviously a Mach-E, but with body panels removed in the front and rear, seemingly to make room for extra cooling and suspension bits as well as a roll cage and extremely thick tires.

It needs those, because the video — posted by a user who only goes by “Carolina Guy” but seems to have impeccable timing and a suspiciously good ability to frame the action — shows the vehicle burning rubber on a skidpad with a few donuts. Road Track pointed out that an F-150 appears briefly that looks like one customized by RTR Vehicles, and could indicate that this is a test vehicle for Vaughn Gittin Jr. Gittin is a likely choice to appear in a promotion, as he drives Mustang in the Formula D series, and helped introduce its 2010 revision to the world.

The Morning After: Amazon’s TikTok ban was just some kind of mistake

Amazon has been in the streaming video game for a long time, but you wouldn’t know it by trying to navigate the company’s awkward streaming interface. The good news is that its Prime Video subscription package has better content on the way, but the bad news is that most people won’t be able to find all of it.

Nicole Lee dug into the service’s “utter mess of an interface” to figure out why it’s so bad, and offer some ideas about how to make it better. My only recommendation? Watch Patriot, ASAP -- it’s weird but worth the trouble.

Amazon email banning TikTok on employee phones was an 'error'

What?

Early Friday, a number of Amazon employees received an email telling them the TikTok app  is now prohibited from all employee phones that can “access Amazon email,” and that employees need to remove the app by Friday in order for email access to continue. 

It was a bit confusing, since no specific security risk from the app was cited. Things grew even more confusing by the evening, when Amazon issued a statement saying “This morning’s email to some of our employees was sent in error. There is no change to our policies right now with regard to TikTok.”

Is anyone watching Quibi?

Benjamin Wallace, Vulture

After months of hype, mobile streaming service Quibi launched earlier this year with a roster full of A-list talent. The company’s key feature is Turnstyle, technology that allows you to flip between landscape and portrait viewing seamlessly (tech a lawsuit alleges Quibi is using without permission). Now that the initial free trial period is up, Quibi appears to be losing a lot of its users.

Our study found little evidence that Twitter is biased against conservative opinion leaders

Subhayan Mukerjee, Kokil Jaidka and Yphtach Lelkes, The Washington Post

Conservative bias is a common refrain from President Trump and other Republican lawmakers. While the debate has been raging for a while now, evidence supporting either side has varied in quality, accuracy and factual details. The Washington Post, a frequent target of the president’s tweets, examined the accounts of 1,800 most-followed conservative “opinion leaders” and found that the most visible info circulating on the social network “does not appear to be ideologically biased in any particular direction.” It also discovered politicians overall aren’t really popular on the platform, and the the majority of users don’t get on Twitter for politics.
