Demandan a Facebook por recopilar llamadas y mensajes en Android

0

Las cosas se complican para la red social. Tras el escándalo de Cambridge Analytica, también saltó a la palestra las prácticas de la compañía que recopilaba logs de llamadas y mensajes en Android, poniendo en serio peligro la privacidad de sus usuarios, aunque la compañía haya hecho especial hincapié en que no lo hizo en secreto y con un motivo oculto para dañar a los que usaban sus aplicaciones.

Ahora varios usuarios han presentado una demanda colectiva contra la red social acusándola de violar su privacidad mediante la recopilación de las llamada y el historial de mensajes texto, a pesar de que dicha recopilación se producía por los permisos de Android que, autorizado por usuarios, daban poder casi sin límites para acceder a los datos.

La demanda ha sido presentada ante la corte del Tribunal Federal del Distrito Norte de California, y ahora el estado está buscando más usuarios que quieran sumarse a la acción colectiva y litigar de una vez en nombre de todos los afectados, sin que haya trascendido la solicitud de compensación por daños que han solicitado los demandantes.

De momento la compañía ya dejó claro que en ningún caso vendió o cedió los datosde llamadas y mensajes de texto que obtuvo de los teléfonos Android y que nunca tuvo acceso al contenido exacto de esos mensajes o llamadas. Queda por ver si esta explicación es suficiente para la corte, pero tal como está el asunto, parece que los problemas de privacidad para Facebook están tomando ya un curso legal más allá del escándalo.

Ryan Reynolds se burla de Blake Lively en el tráiler de Deadpool 2 ¡Mira!

0

Sí, el actor lo hizo de nuevo…

Ryan Reynolds y Blake Lively tienen un largo historial de burlas y bromas pesadas entre ellos, pero esta vez el guapo actor de 41 fue un paso más allá y se coronó como el ganador de esta batalla de trolleos, llevando su nuevo ataque a la gran pantalla.

Este 22 de marzo, 20th Century Fox lanzó el primer tráiler de la esperadísima Deadpool 2, y al final del preview Reynolds dispara contra Lively de manera inesperada y simplemente magistral.

Luego de una buena dosis de acción, sorpresas y humor ácido, Ryan, en su traje rojo de Deadpool dice, “Hacer lo correcto es complicado, pero si quieres luchar por lo que es justo, a veces tienes que pelear sucio. Y por eso es que Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants es pura pornografía”.

Sí, Ryan se burló de una de las cintas más famosas de Blake.

En 2005, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants reunió por primera vez a Blake con quienes siguen siendo sus mejores amigas, América FerraraAlexis Bledel y Amber Tamblyn, en una cinta que cuenta la historia de unas chicas unidas por la magia de unos jeans que misteriosamente les quedan bien a todas.

What Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Have Been Up to Amid Their “Break”

0

Justin Bieber was spotted shirtless at a soccer match with friends in Los Angeles on Saturday, while Selena Gomez was seen out on a night on the town.

Wearing a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers crop top and red wrap skirt, the 25-year-old “Come and Get It” singer was photographed that night outside the West Hollywood restaurant and bar the Nice Guy, a celebrity hot spot.

Earlier this month, multiple sources told E! News that Justin and Selena have been spending time away from each other. The two had rekindled their past romance last fall. They were last seen in the same location, leaving church, on March 7, several days after Justin’s 24th birthday.

“Justin has been upset about the recent break from Selena and is trying to keep busy until they work things out,” a source told E! News last week. “It wasn’t his choice for them to split, and he is really taking time to focus on himself right now. He has been working out every day, focusing on church and being out and about with his friends.”

Here’s what Justin and Selena have been spotted doing amid their “break”:

Weekend of March 10-11: Selena visits family in Texas.

March 15: Justin attends the premiere of friend Patrick Schwarzenegger‘s new film, Midnight Sun. The actor is accompanied by his girlfriend, model Abby Champion. Earlier that day, Selena is photographed with friends in Malibu, sporting a new bob haircut.

March 16: Justin, Schwartzenegger, Abby and her sister Baskin Champion go clubbing together. Earlier in the day, Selena is photographed riding a bike in Los Angeles with a friend.

March 17: Selena is all smiles as she’s photographed walking in Beverly Hills on St Patrick’s Day.

March 19: Selena begins a trip to Australia. She is spotted hanging out on a yacht in Sydney with friends.

March 20: Justin makes a surprise appearance onstage at Craig David‘s concert at the Roxy in Los Angeles. Justin attends the show with several people, including Baskin. They are photographed leaving the venue in the same car.

“Justin has been hanging out with Baskin,” a second source tells E! News, adding that the two went back to his house.

¿Quién no extraña al divertido personaje?

Will Smith y Jimmy Fallon dieron a los fanáticos un poco de nostalgia televisiva en el reciente episodio de The Tonight Show cantando una mezcla de canciones clásicas de series de TV.

El presentador y la estrella Men in Black fueron de regreso a la década de 1960 silbando la canción The Andy Griffith Show y cantando el opening de I Dream of Jeannie. También remezclaron algunos clásicos de los años 70 y 80, incluyendo los temas de Good Times, Los Supersónicos, Diff’rent StrokesThe Great American Hero y Tres son Compañía.

Por supuesto, incluyó algunos éxitos finales de los 80 y principios de los 90, como las canciones de The Golden Girls, Full House y Martin.

Pero el gran final fue cuando Smith revivió sus días de gloria televisiva y golpeó el tema principal de El Príncipe del Rap.

¡Míralos!

Diplo cree que la música latina no llegará ya “mucho más lejos”

0

Diplo publica hoy un nuevo EP llamado ‘California’ en el que por supuesto aparecen voces invitadas como Santigold, Lil Yachty, Desiigner o Mø. Al tiempo, ha concedido una entrevista a The Guardianen la que habla de apropiacionismo, de la EDM o, de manera curiosa, de lo malo que era de pequeño: “siempre decepcionaba a mi familia, no puedo contar las veces que he hecho llorar a mi madre. Mis padres no dejaron de pensar que era un traficante de drogas hasta hace unos 10 años. No creo que sepan lo duro que he trabajado, pero cada día intento mostrárselo”.

Sobre apropiacionismo, no puede evitar hacer un “eye rolling” cuando sale la cuestión, mostrándose visiblemente cansado de contestar la misma pregunta: “estoy cansado de contestar de manera correcta… No… me… puto importa. ¿Qué música se supone que tengo que hacer? Siendo blanco y americano, no tienes un fondo cultural, a menos que hagas música con un violín de Appalachia”. A continuación, recuerda que The Clash no tuvieron que contestar tantas preguntas sobre apropiacionismo reggae. Sentencia sobre el tema: “he tenido muchos privilegios por ser un hombre blanco de clase media americano. Así que si a cambio de eso, he sido considerado un explotador y soportado que la gente dijera cosas negativas sobre mí, me parece que he pagado un precio muy pequeño”.

Habla sobre lo cutre (“cheesy”) que le parece la EDM y considera que Major Lazer, aun beneficiándose de ella, hicieron algo más “diverso” y “diferente”. Niega haberse subido a la tendencia (“me gusta crearlas o destruirlas”) y deja un titular cuando afirma que en 2018 la gente no recuerda la música mala que haces (“puedes tropezar todas las veces que quieras”), poniendo como ejemplo a Justin Bieber, de quien dice que la gente se acuerda más que nada de ‘Purpose’; y otro cuando afirma que la música latina ya ha tocado techo. “El pop global tiene un futuro lúgubre. De vez en cuando irrumpe algo, y la música latina está teniendo su momento, pero no creo que vaya mucho más allá”. ¿Se percibe a Diplo algo cansado, quizá? Atentos a este otro titular suelto que apunta The Guardian: “La verdad, estoy esperando volver a ser irrelevante”, afirma, “divertido”, según este medio.

Demi Lovato Reveals Her Old AOL Screen Name Was Inspired By Kelly Clarkson

0

Demi Lovato has always been a hardcore Kelly Clarkson fan.

The 25-year-old singer visited SiriusXM’s Morning Mash Up on Thursday, where she happily revealed that one of her former AOL screen names was actually inspired by Clarkson.

“I had Demilicious and Little Kelly because I was obsessed with Kelly Clarkson,” she shared.

This isn’t the first time Lovato and Clarkson have expressed their mutual love for one another. In honor of Lovato’s birthday in 2015, Clarkson sang a cover of her hit “Cool For the Summer” during her concert in L.A.

“It’s one of my girls’ birthdays tomorrow…and when I say my ‘girl,’ I mean Demi Lovato,” Clarkson said as the crowd cheered. “She’s always been so supportive and so cool.”

To say Lovato was happy with the shoutout is an understatement.

Shawn Mendes’ “Lost In Japan” Is An Atmospheric Smash

0

Shawn Mendes continues to impress. Today (March 23) he pulled off the seemingly impossible by unveiling two massive anthems in less than one week. Yesterday the 19-year-old rolled out his sweeping pop/rock extravaganza “In My Blood.” Inspired by Kings of Leon, the earnest song is the lead single to his forthcoming third LP. He followed that up with a second taste of the album on his atmospheric “Lost In Japan,” and it is another solid gold bop. On it, the crooner takes a romance international as he offers to travel the globe to be closer to his flame.

Opening with melancholic keys, it transforms into an aural, sexy production as the hitmaker comes in to drop his seductive vocals. “All it takes it one flight. We’d be in the same time zone,” he proposes as things pick up. He gets even more romantic while dropping some serious lines on the chorus. “Do you got plans tonight? I’m a couple hundred miles from Japan, and I was thinking I could fly to your hotel tonight. Cause I can’t get you off my mind.”

Riding a beat that feels inspired by Justin Timberlake with its funky strings and driving bass, the “There’s Nothin Holdin’ Me Back”crooner seems perfectly at ease on the innovative release. Sonically, it feels like one of his biggest risks yet, but it manages to present a new, more mature version of the superstar.

Things are off to a very good start for Shawn. One day into his new era, and he is already dominating iTunes charts and will likely make a strong debut on the Billboard Hot 100. In less than 24 hours “In My Blood” racked up more than 3 million streams on Spotify, and it is sitting comfortably at the top spot of the US iTunes. Based on how things are going, it looks like his biggest competition for the top spot will be himself. Give the track a spin below!

Shawn Mendes Kicks Off A New Era With His Sweeping “In My Blood”

0

Shawn Mendes made true on his promise to roll out a taste of new music this week. After announcing the upcoming release via a collaboration with Spotify, the 19-year-old unveiled his earnest new single, “In My Blood” today (March 22). Unsurprisingly, it sounds like another sure-fire smash. After one listen it is easy to see why the hitmaker described his latest as “the closest song to my heart” in a post on social media. The sweeping anthem offers an intimate glimpse into his deepest thoughts.

“Help me. It’s like the walls are caving in. Sometimes I feel like giving up, but I just can’t. It isn’t in my blood,” he croons over acoustic strings on the opening lines. His voice resonates with strength as the production picks up and he moves into the chorus. Here, Shawn incorporates a pop/rock instrumental that is sure to find plenty of love on radio. With lyrics about battling insecurities and loneliness, the track is incredibly relatable. However, instead of buckling under the pressure, the superstar presents his resilience. In all, it is a moving and inspiring track and a wonderful taste of things to come.

“In My Blood” appears to be the lead single for Shawn’s forthcoming third LP. We don’t know much about the project yet, but he has teased its release several times lately. Based on our first impressions, it seems likely he will have another chart-topper on his hands. Keep an eye peeled for a mysterious second song dropping tomorrow (March 23). Until then, give Shawn’s latest a spin below!

Sia Reunites With David Guetta On Their Tropical-Tinged “Flames”

0

Sia and David Guetta established an excellent working chemistry after unveiling their debut collaboration, “Titanium,” in 2011. The explosive anthem was the first in a series they have rolled out over the years. Today (March 22), they are offering up their latest, and it is another smash. Called “Flames,” it is an inspiring anthem complete with a rousing production and another of the “Chandelier” siren’s jaw-dropping vocal lines.

“One foot in front of the other babe. One breath leads to another yeah; just keep moving,” Sia proclaims over lush synths on the opening lines. She continues inspiring as the track moves into its chorus. “Oh, my love, don’t stop burning. Gonna send them up in flames,” she sings. The production is vaguely tropical and warm enough to beat any final cold snaps of winter. The accompanying lyric video mirrors the warm vibes with a summery illustration and glowing letters.

In a press release, Guetta opened up about the pair’s history and his excitement at the prospect of getting back in the studio with her. “‘Titanium’ is still one of the tracks I am proudest of and Sia is one of my favorite artists to work with. She’s a great songwriter and has an amazing voice. I’m just super excited that we get to release another track together.”

“Flames” is another winning release for the pair’s discography. It joins their most recent collaboration, a rip-roaring remix of the Aussie’s “Helium.” Originally included on the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, the brooding track was reimagined in honor of Sia’s Mac Cosmetics X Viva Glam collaboration. With any luck, their latest will replicate the meteoric success of their original release. Give the track a spin and check out its vibrant lyric video below!
