      Already at the beginning of this year, Apple has managed to be noted in several scandalous stories related to the privacy of iPhone users. The last in the spotlight was the vulnerability of the branded messenger, and recently foreign users reported the possibility of data theft by popular applications from the App Store. The company promptly responded to the appeal and took tough measures against a number of mobile developers.

      The "blacklist" of the company got a number of applications, including Hotels.com, Expedia, Abercrombie & Fitch, Air Canada, and Singapore Airlines. All "violators" used the platform Glassbox, which allows you to record from the screen of the device, as well as to save the history of gestures and input data from the keyboard.
      Thus, all actions of the iPhone owner could be saved and transferred to third parties without his knowledge. The compromised information could include passport and credit card numbers, account passwords, real name, and residential address.
      Apple representatives confirmed that such actions violate the rules of publishing applications in the App Store. The use of analytical services is not prohibited, however, the collection of information must be done with the consent of the user. According to the SlashGear resource, the Corporation has already informed the developers about the need to bring "problematic" applications in line with the company's privacy policy as soon as possible or remove them from the App Store.

      Applications that support Glassbox developers publish and for the Android platform, but Google has not made any statements about changes to the privacy policy of its distribution service Google Play.

      In the article you'll learn about an unusual way to circumvent video game censorship; upgrade your iPhone from single-SIM to dual-SIM and artificial intelligence as a doctor.
      In China circumvent censorship of video games
      China has strict censorship of the press, the Internet, television and even video games. Often developers have to completely redesign their projects for the Chinese market, as in the case of World of Warcraft, where removed the bones, skulls, and meat. Some particularly cruel and outright titles and all are banned in the country, that does not prevent vendors to sell "zapresheno". For example, the recent remake of Resident Evil 2, distinguished by special brutality and cruelty, on the trading floor Taobao sell under very unusual names: "the First day at work in the police station: Remake", "Fried cold rice 2", "Biochemical crisis", etc.

      For more conspiracy one of the sellers do their own packaging for the game disc, manually painting over them with the arts. The result is reminiscent of children's creativity.

      Other sellers sell Resident Evil 2 Remake under the guise of other games like Little Nightmares or Plants vs Zombies.

      Note that such a conspiracy is not something new for the Chinese market. For example, the game series Battlefield in China called Boyfriend Storm, but the popular Diablo is hidden under the name "big pineapple".
      Craftsmen have learned how to make dual-SIM iPhone
      Last year, Apple listened to consumers and yet released the iPhone with support for two SIM-cards. However, physically two "SIM cards" are supported only on iPhone XS Max and only in the version for the Chinese market. Of course, such devices work in other countries, but they are sold by unofficial Resellers and are often much more expensive than the single-SIM version. Therefore, the Chinese masters have established a business to upgrade the usual iPhone XS Max with a single SIM-card in a dual-SIM.
      The procedure involves disassembly of the smartphone and disconnecting from the circuit Board module eSIM (e-SIM) and subsequent replacement odnoimennogo tray on dual-SIM. The process is quite complex and requires the use of special equipment, so at home to perform such an operation will not work. After modification, the user gets a fully working iPhone XS Max with support for two SIM-cards.
      It is important to note that the cost of the upgrade is much lower than the price difference between single-and dual-SIM iPhone XS Max outside China. It should also be remembered that after this procedure, the device is deprived of a warranty.
      Artificial intelligence has learned to diagnose diseases no worse than a doctor
      With the development of robots and AI more and more human professions are in danger of extinction. Health workers may also be at risk. For example, a team of Chinese and American researchers has created an artificial intelligence system that can analyze medical records and diagnose with the same accuracy as experienced doctors.

      The developer's report says that the new system is able to automatically diagnose common childhood diseases after the treatment of symptoms, anamnesis, and other data. To train the neural network, scientists used electronic records collected as a result of more than 1.36 million visits to pediatricians of a large Chinese medical center. According to experts, artificial intelligence was comparable to experienced doctors and in the future will undertake the diagnosis of complex or rare diseases.
      In the future, such a system could prove extremely useful in a region with a shortage of medical personnel.

    • Search engine marketing (SEM): the methods, techniques, safety

      What is search marketing? A few years ago, this term simply did not exist. However, the rapid development of Internet technologies has led not only to the emergence of this trend but also to its amazing popularity. At the moment, search marketing is known as an effective way of promotion, which includes a range of activities aimed at achieving only one goal - to attract customers.

      Table of Contents
      Definition Relevance Goals and Tasks Methods and Technologies Search engine optimization Contextual advertising Social networks Search marketing security Prohibited method: Disadvantages Definition
      If you have not encountered this term before, it's time to get acquainted with it. Search engine marketing involves promotion in search engines in order to attract the target audience. I must say that this is a whole system in which several specialists are involved. They are marketers, programmers, copywriters, designers, etc.
      Compared to other methods of search engine marketing on the Internet has a major advantage. It allows you to reach out to an audience that is interested in the proposal addressed to it. This is due to the fact that it comes to the search engine for an answer to your request. Offering what potential visitors need, you both benefit. Customers get what they're looking for, and you get real customers.
      Search marketing is still a fairly new technology. Therefore, users have a logical question: why is it needed and whether it is needed at all? Let's find out.
      So, the main task of search marketing is to attract potential consumers. And not random, but only interested. After all, the offer is addressed only to those who are already looking for a product or service that you are ready to offer.
      However, in order for a user to notice your website among dozens of competitors, it is necessary to use various methods of search marketing. After all, as a rule, scrolling through the issue, the user rarely browses more than ten sites. Competently using the latest technology, you can be in the top ten and get ahead of competitors in the fight for the attention of potential customers.

      The theoretical definition does not always give an accurate understanding. Let's try to find out how search engine marketing works and what it's for.
      So, suppose that a budding entrepreneur decided to open his own business – to sell lingerie in an online store. This is a popular product that is in demand.
      However, in any area, you need advertising that allows you to attract customers. Because their absence means no profit. For start-up entrepreneurs, all costs are on the account, and any advertising is not cheap.
      There are many companies that offer search marketing among other services. You can even link the amount of payment to the result or make parts. That is, first the entrepreneur receives real customers, and then from the profits makes the rest of the payment for such an unusual method of advertising. Convenient to all.

      Goals and Tasks
      Knowing the definition is not enough. You need to know for what purposes search marketing is used.
      Sales. This is the most obvious task that this method of promotion performs. It is necessary to attract interested buyers to the site who will make a purchase. Image. The more often a person will see the logo of your company, the more likely that he will remember you and sooner or later become a client. Reputation. If we are talking about the promotion in social networks, a large value can have reviews. It is advisable to find a way to encourage buyers to leave real reviews. The more positive opinions can be collected, the greater the level of confidence in the company among potential customers. Competition. The market for goods and services is currently oversaturated. That is why it is especially important to compete and win customers over to your own side. Information. You can offer users up-to-date information about the products and services they are interested in. Even if they don't buy anything right away, your company will become an expert for them. In the future, they can return, choosing you among the many competitors.
      Methods and Technologies
      You need to understand that SEM (search engine marketing) is the whole complex of actions, which may include website optimization, contextual and launching viral advertising, and on the Internet resource work more effectively, attracting target customers and converting them into real buyers. So, what are the technologies of search marketing?
      Contextual advertising. Targeted advertising. Search engine optimization. Social network. Let's talk more about some of the technologies listed above.
      Search engine optimization
      This is only part of the marketing campaign. It involves working directly with the promoted site. Moreover, search engine optimization can be both internal and external. In the first case, work with texts published on the website, metatags, links, etc. In the second case, efforts are aimed at increasing the number of links to third-party resources.

      There are a considerable number of factors that allow you to improve the position of the site in search results. A simple user does not need to know all of them. To do this, there is a separate profession, representatives of which are engaged in search engine optimization.
      Contextual advertising
      This system for placing paid ads, created by the search engines. Each user can create their own ads and thus attract the target audience to their own website.
      The advantage of contextual advertising is that the user does not pay for the fact of placing an advertisement. Payment is charged only if the user clicked on the ad and went to the specified site.
      Another important feature is that to get to the top lines do not need long and painstakingly to optimize the site. You can buy this place for a fee, exhibited by the search engine. It is difficult to predict how high the conversion will be in this case.
      Social networks
      These sites are incredibly popular among the population. It is not surprising that this is quite successfully used by marketers. In this case, often published interesting for users' materials, to support communication in thematic communities, etc. In a sense, marketing in social networks can be called hidden. In addition, this method of advertising is not suitable for all companies. Not every product can be advertised with beautiful photos on social networks and enticing texts.

      Search marketing security
      This question becomes relevant if illegal methods of promotion are used. Conventionally, they are called "gray" and " black".
      Above were described exclusively "white" methods of search marketing, which are loyal to the search engines. Such a conscientious promotion requires a lot of time and effort, but ultimately increases the reputation of the site and gives a reliable result.
      Why then use "gray" and "black" schemes? For the reason that not all site owners are willing to invest a lot of time, effort, and money in the fair promotion. However, you need to understand that when using unscrupulous methods then it will be extremely difficult to restore the reputation of the site or even impossible.
      Prohibited method:
      spamming; automatic link exchange and purchase; placement of links to non-thematic sites. Some of these methods can produce results, but they can also lead to a site ban. Then it will disappear from the search results. Is it worth the risk, each site owner decides for himself.

      Delayed result. It may take several weeks of hard work to see the first results of search marketing. We must understand that this is a task that involves long-term implementation. Do not take it, waiting for lightning-fast results. Dependence on competitors. Even if as a result of well-organized search marketing you will be able to be in a good position in the issuance, all at any time can change because of the actions of your competitors. Complexity. It is almost impossible to carry out the whole complex of measures to promote the company on the Internet alone. This requires a whole team of professionals, not random people. Financial cost. You will have to pay for both professional services and search marketing. For example, if we are talking about contextual advertising. You need to understand that the promotion cannot be absolutely free.
