STORIES MAKING A SPLASH

TECH
LinkedIn halts targeted ads based on group data in EU

LinkedIn will no longer allow advertisers to target users based on data from LinkedIn Groups. This decision follows a complaint by civil society groups to the European Commission over potential violations of the Digital Services Act (DSA), which governs online content and advertising transparency.

The complaint prompted the EC to investigate how LinkedIn might be enabling targeted ads based on sensitive personal data. Although LinkedIn maintained its compliance with the DSA, it has chosen to remove the feature to avoid any misconceptions about indirect targeting based on special categories of data.

LinkedIn's VP for legal and digital safety, Patrick Corrigan, stated the change is effective immediately for new ad campaigns. This voluntary move aims to preempt further regulatory scrutiny amidst Microsoft's existing challenges in Europe.

AI
‘Apple Intelligence’ is the name of iOS 18’s AI upgrade

Apple will unveil its AI initiatives in iOS 18, named 'Apple Intelligence', during its WWDC keynote, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. The suite will integrate features like notification summaries and intelligent auto-replies across apps such as Safari and Mail.

Powered by large language models, Apple Intelligence aims to enhance user experience with practical functionalities like summarization and dynamic emoji creation. The Photos app will introduce AI-driven editing tools, while Voice Memos will offer automatic transcription.

Although improvements to Siri and Xcode's AI-powered code completion are in progress, their public release may occur later. The initiative will blend on-device and cloud-based processing, prioritizing user privacy through confidential computing designs and a partnership with OpenAI.

Anker recalls its 321 Power Bank due to fire risk

Anker is recalling its 321 Power Bank (PowerCore 5K, model number A1112) due to a fire risk from a manufacturing defect. This recall affects all units produced after March 2023, despite the company noting that "only a small number" are impacted.

To check if you have this model, look for "Anker 321 Power Bank (PowerCore 5K, Black), Model: A1112" on the bottom in white text. If you do, stop using it immediately and fill out a form with the serial number to receive a replacement 533 Power Bank. Having your proof of purchase will expedite the process.

Remember, do not throw away your batteries as they can cause fires. Anker provides links for responsible disposal options, including the EPA and Call2Recycle for US users. This recall follows last year's recall of the 535 Power Bank, linked to a Maryland house fire.
