- Nest thermostats to save power during Aug. 21 eclipse
By David R. Baker - Saturday Aug 12, 2017
California has grown so dependent on solar power that state officials have called on residents to conserve electricity during this month’s eclipse. Nest — a subsidiary of Google’s parent company, Alphabet — is asking its customers nationwide to join what it calls the “solar eclipse rush hour,” an effort to save energy as the eclipse darkens skies across the United States. Nest already has a similar, voluntary program for saving electricity during periods of high electricity demand, such as heat waves. California, which has installed far more solar power plants and rooftop arrays than any other state, is expected to see the biggest impact. Managers of the state’s power grid predict that the eclipse, which begins just after 9 a.m. on the West Coast, will cut the output from the state’s large solar facilities by nearly two-thirds before the sunlight starts to strengthen again. North Carolina, for example, ranks second behind California in solar power generating capacity, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association. [...] while the eclipse will hit California in the morning, when electricity demand is typically low, it will reach the East Coast in midafternoon, when demand is higher. [...] in the last few days before the eclipse, the company will reach out to utility companies and tell them how much power Nest customers in their regions are expected to save.
- HiQ wins court round against LinkedIn
By Thomas Lee - Tuesday Aug 15, 2017
In granting HiQ Labs Inc.’s request for a preliminary injunction, U.S. District Judge Edward Chen said the company presented convincing arguments that LinkedIn’s primary motivation was to shut down a competitor rather than protect user privacy as the social media giant had claimed.In recent years, Silicon Valley’s most powerful companies have been cracking down on firms they suspect of “data scraping,” the practice of extracting information from social media accounts or websites such as Yelp or Wikipedia.LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook view scraping of the data generated by their users not just as theft — they sometimes charge to license data — but also as a violation of their users’ privacy.Data analytics has becoming a rapidly growing industry as companies seek ways to analyze large amounts of information so they can make smarter business decisions.Since Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn have collected an enormous amount of user data, they have sought to control access to it, even though that information is often public.Famed Harvard law Professor Laurence Tribe is advising HiQ.
