Nov 1 2021, #CBDC India: "so every single person today, even if he's not able to afford all the 3 meals, is having a #Smartphone in his hand. And I must thank some of the Asian countries which actually revolutionize[d] the smartphone market"
"so these three: the #biometric identity, the no-frills savings account [], & of course the #smartphone, & the fact that data is so cheap in India was the one which actually set the ground... I think #Canada & India started on this journey of instant payments almost together..."
Jan 18 2021, Payments #Canada: "Design attributes for a retail #CBDC... introduction of a new channel for illicit activities, money-laundering, terrorist financing other socially undesirable behaviours."

The power in your pocket:
On July 20, 1969, humans landed on the #moon. Key to that feat was a computer module designed by the @MIT Instrumentation Laboratory called the Apollo Guidance Computer For all mankind.
Not particularly powerful by todays standards having 64Kbyte of memory & operating at 0.043MHz but boy did it deliver on a complex task greater than the sum of its electronic parts, providing computation + electronic interfaces for guidance, navigation & control of the spacecraft
Even then, there were teams of technicians and engineers at the Goddard Space Flight Center using 5 @IBM System/360 Model 75s #mainframe computer to run parallel comparative calculations to ensure everything went right ... no room for error IBM System/360 Model 75 were the size of a small room

#Digital technologies, which have become one of the important parts of our lives, have numerous benefits in many areas such as #education, #health, #economy, etc. But, and there is a big but?
What are the costs of #digitalization for #children and #young people? How should families treat children on the internet or social media using? What do the figures tell us? Here is the threat on Children & Young People’s Mental Health in the Digital Age by the OECD in 2018. Image

European Commission proposes a common charger for electronic devices , smartphones, tablets, cameras, headphones, portable speakers and handheld videogame consoles.

#EU #MargretheVestager #Smartphone #electronic #ThierryBreton
Also the Commission proposes to unbundle the sale of chargers from the sale of electronic devices. This will improve consumers' convenience & reduce environmental footprint associated with the production & disposal of chargers, thereby supporting the green & digital transitions
Improved information for consumers: producers will need to provide relevant information about charging performance, including information on the power required by the device and if it supports fast charging

*sigh*

Opening what I suspect will become a very long [Thread] on the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill (#PCSCBill) which, having been introduced last Tuesday, gets its #SecondReading *next* Tuesday - #precipitous, to say the least...

bills.parliament.uk/bills/2839
While it is all too often merely lip service, the Ministerial statement of #HumanRights compliance on the cover of this Bill 👇 is particularly #hypocritical, given its actual contents...
Many have been writing about the impact of this proposed legislation on lawful #protest, notably @IanDunt...

...who, critically, picks up on the extraordinary #HenryVIII power @pritipatel is trying to grab.

A thread on what happened to one of the most talked and hyped Indian phone company #Micromax
1. It dates back to year 2000 when Micromax Informatics was founded as a software company by Rahul Sharma and his friends in Gurgaon who had just come out of college and wanted to venture into a "dot com" which was booming during 2000s.
2. It was that time when coin phone was a big trend which enabled people in remote areas to connect with family and friends. These phones looked like landline but didn't require the wiring as it was operated using a SIM and benefited multiple people with a single SIM. Image

Thinking about a low cost easy to manufacture home test kit for #Coronavirus. Outline: #Nasal_swab (Q-tip) w/ freeze dried reagents for isothermal #DNA amplification with #COVID19 primers. Colorimetric readout by #iOS or #Android #App w/ #geolocation & #HIPPA compliant reporting. Image
Read-out would be in minutes - timer in App - read by camera in your smart phone. No other machines. Links to telemedicine groups for positive results. Built in positive control - e.g. no color = improper test, green NEGATIVE, red POSITIVE.
I’ve done my best creating when faced by a challenge. Next gen sequencing when my son went to new born intensive care - #454 @iontorrent. Ultrasound on a chip @ButterflyNetInc when wanted to monitor my daughter’s kidneys.

Some #tips on #Smartphone theft issues. These days, newspapers have at least 2-3 such cases everyday of chain snatching, phone snatching, bag snatching.

Want to know about all three?
How to avoid losing a phone?
1. Don't hold phone loosely in your hand on road facing side while walking. Avoid using SM apps on road.
2. Walk on footpaths, not on roads. Use headphone, Bluetooth, keep phone in trouser side packet. 3. Don't use phone while driving. Park n use.

HILO sobre Arabia Saudita #SaudiArabia y el polémico uso de la #app #Absher #AbsherApp para monitorizar y controlar los viajes al extranjero de las #mujeres a través del #smartphone.
Tras haber compartido algunos tweets a favor y en contra de la app, procedo a dar mi análisis.
1. Desgraciadamente puede afirmarse sin miedo a errar que los #derechos de las #mujeres en Arabia Saudí han estado siempre limitados debido a la interpretación rigoristas y fundamentalista de la #Sharía o ley islámica en Arabia Saudita #SaudiArabia.
2. La ley de Arabia Saudí especifica que cada mujer debe tener un guardián legal del sexo masculino que sea el responsable final de sus acciones: Padre, Hermano, Marido o Hijo. Las #mujeres deben solicitar permiso para viajar o salir de prisión tras cumplir una condena @hrw
