- Internet activists plan net neutrality protest
By Isha Salian - Tuesday Jul 11, 2017
Companies, organizations and individuals are participating in a “day of action” Wednesday to urge the Federal Communications Commission and Congress to preserve regulations adopted in 2015 to limit Internet service providers’ ability to favor certain websites or apps. Currently, the FCC can require Internet service providers like Comcast, AT&T and Verizon to treat all Web traffic flowing over their networks equally. In an April speech, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai called for a return to treating the Internet as an information service, not a public utility, a distinction that would limit the FCC’s ability to regulate it. Some in favor of the FCC’s move argue that the Federal Trade Commission should have the authority to regulate Internet service providers, not the FCC. Other net neutrality opponents believe the FCC should only extend its authority over Internet service providers if a serious problem emerges, which they argue has not yet happened. The current policy is “just unwise and really unjustified, and especially because the commission didn’t make a finding of a market failure before it imposed this more stringent form of regulation,” said Randolph May, president of the Free State Foundation, a nonprofit think tank. Regulation is a topic that’s difficult to get consumers interested in,” said Sonic CEO Dane Jasper, “but people really like the Internet.
- New York eyes 'textalyzer' to bust drivers using phones
By DAVID KLEPPER, Associated Press - Wednesday Jul 26, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Police in New York state may soon have a high-tech way of catching texting drivers: a device known as a "textalyzer" that allows an officer to quickly check if a phone has been in use before a crash."Despite laws to ban cellphone use while driving, some motorists still continue to insist on texting behind the wheel — placing themselves and others at substantial risk," Cuomo said in a statement first reported by The Associated Press.Digital privacy and civil liberties groups already have questioned whether the technology's use would violate personal privacy, noting that police can already obtain search warrants if they believe information on a private phone could be useful in a prosecution.Many security experts are skeptical when it comes to promises that the textalyzer would only access information about phone usage, and not personal material, according to Rainey Reitman, of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a nonprofit organization that advocates for civil liberties when it comes to digital technology.The committee will hear from supporters and opponents of the technology, law enforcement officials and legal experts before issuing a report, Cuomo's office said.
