eBay is facing several investigations into its data breach

The UK's information commissioner is working with European data authorities with a view to taking action against eBay over its recent data breach.


Three US states are also investigating the theft of names, email addresses and other personal data, which affected up to 145 million eBay customers.


The online marketplace has begun the process of notifying its customers about the need to reset passwords.

 
However some customers reported problems when attempting to do so.
 
EBay told the BBC that it was not aware of any technical problems with the password reset function on the site.
 
"The site is busy, but our secure password reset tool is working," a spokesman said.
 
The firm has been criticised for its slow reaction in informing customers about the theft of personal data.
 
"We are sending out millions of emails, and it will take some time. The process is certainly well under way," the firm told the BBC.
 
It warned though that its official password reset email contained no links and that customers should be wary of messages that did.
 
"Any email with links is a phishing attempt," it said.
 
Serious breach
 
Meanwhile the fallout from the data breach was beginning to kick in.
 
In the US, Connecticut, Florida and Illinois said they were conducting a joint investigation.
 
Speaking on BBC Radio 5 live, the UK's information commissioner said that the eBay breach was "very serious" but that outdated and complex data protection laws meant the ICO could not begin an immediate investigation.
 
He said the watchdog would have to first liaise with the Luxembourg data protection, where eBay has its European headquarters.
 
"There's millions of UK citizens affected by this, and we've been clear that we're monitoring it, but by taking the wrong action under the law now we risk invalidating any investigation," an ICO spokesman told the BBC when pressed on why the watchdog had not yet launched any action.
 
Identity theft
 
Questions are starting to be asked about how well eBay safeguarded its customers' data.
 
Hugh Boyes from the Institution of Engineering and Technology questioned why eBay stored so much data in the first place.
 
"The Information Commissioner makes the point that organisations should keep the minimum information necessary so why do eBay need to hold and store dates of birth and addresses?"
 
"As an occasional eBay user, I am concerned that not only have they lost my email, username and password, but according to their website the loss includes home address, phone number and date of birth.
 
"This is serious from an identity theft perspective. The only item they are missing is the mother's maiden name and they have sufficient information to impersonate an individual when dealing with many financial organisations."
 
Reports that large numbers of eBay customer details have begun appearing for sale in Pastebin - a site where hackers publicise their attacks - have been denied by eBay.
 
Lysa Myers, a security research at ESET agreed that the data was unlikely to have originated from the auction site.
 
"The users that are shown in the sample would represent an odd subset of users for an international company like eBay. And the price asked (1.45 Bitcoin) would seem to be astonishingly low for the data of 145 million users," she said.
 
"Even if the sample is not in fact from the eBay breach, it could potentially be data from another company's leak."

Google : poised to produce 3D imaging tablet

A tablet computer capable of taking 3D images is set to be put into production by Google, according to reports.


The Wall Street Journal quoted sources close to the company as saying a run of 4,000 devices will be manufactured next month.

The tablet will have two rear-facing cameras and advanced imaging software - and will be shown off at the firm's forthcoming developers' conference.

Google has said it will not comment on "rumour and speculation".

But in March, Google showed off Project Tango, an effort to bring 3D technology to its handheld devices. A prototype smartphone had been given out to 200 developers to try out.

The technology makes use of infrared sensors to measure depth of surroundings.

While the ability to create 3D images with small devices is by no means a new technological feat, Google's strategy will be to harness the hardware to contribute to, among other things, its mapping effort.

For instance, the devices could be used to create quickly a 3D map of indoor environments.

Virtual reality race


According to the Wall Street Journal, the 3D tablet will be shown off at Google's annual developers' conference at the end of June.

As it did with the Google Glass eyewear product, it is expected the firm will allow a select number of developers and engineers to experiment with the technology before a consumer launch is planned.

Although still a relatively minor industry, the race to create the "killer app" for building and viewing virtual reality environments is building apace.

In March, Facebook swooped in on a $2bn (£1.2bn) deal for Oculus VR, a company making a virtual reality headset.

A mini-site for Project Tango has highlighted a few of the firm's plans in the area.

"Project Tango is an attempt to create a mobile device unlike like any other," the site explains.

"A mobile device that shares our sense of space and movement, that understands and perceives the world the same way we do."

In the past few years, devices able to view and create 3D images have made it to market, but suffered heavily from a lack of consumer interest, said Jack Kent, an analyst at IHS.

"If Google really pushes it, that might change the dynamics of the market," he told the BBC.

Apple removes weed dealing game from app store

The rules on marijuana are blurry, even in the virtual world.


The makers of a game called Weed Firm says Apple removed the app from the iTunes App Store this week after hitting No. 1 on the store's download charts.


In Weed Firm, players walk in the shoes of pot dealer Ted Growing through his "vicious and lawless career," growing marijuana plants and selling pot while dodging "crooked cops" and "dangerous gangsters." You may even be tasked with paying a stripper to give a lap dance.

 

Apple id not respond to a request for comment about why the game was removed.

Forget Godzilla: Facebook rolls out its own dinosaur

It's been a big week for dinosaurs. With "Godzilla" still rampaging at the box office, Facebook also rolled out some privacy changes along with a friendly blue dino to help explain them all.


In addition to making settings for all new users default to "Friends Only," Facebook announced Thursday it will prompt existing users to review their privacy settings.


Your new guide to the intricacies of controlling your personal info on the world's biggest social platform? A blue cartoon dinosaur with a snaggletooth, tapping away at a laptop that looks like some kind of Macbook.

 
"Hi!" reads one of the new pop-up windows, presumably relaying the sentiments of the new Mesozoic spirit animal. "Sorry to interrupt. You haven't changed who can see your post lately, so we just wanted to make sure you're sharing this post with the right audience."
 
Fair enough. It's part of an effort that Facebook has been undertaking for months to clarify and tighten privacy settings, something critics have dinged the site for in the past.
 
But why a dinosaur?
 
"Our team looked at a few different characters, saw the dinosaur, and just thought he was the friendliest and best choice," said Raylene Yung, an engineering manager on Facebook's privacy team. "Once we tried him out, we saw some great results and welcomed him to the team."
 
Dubbed the "Zuckasaurus" by The New York Times in a nod to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the (thankfully) un-Barney-like creature joins an ever-growing pantheon of tech mascots.
 
From TiVo's smiley, leggy TV guy to Google Android's android, there has been no shortage of cutesy characters introduced by Web and tech companies to reinforce brand identity or help set themselves apart from the masses.
 
As a species, they've provoked a wide variety of reactions.
 
Some, like Reddit's beloved Snoo, the Twitter bird and the early Web's Ask Jeeves butler invoke warm feelings among users. Even Twitter's "Fail Whale," which showed up years ago whenever the platform was over capacity, had its fans.
 
Other mascots weren't so lucky.
 
Clippy, Microsoft's talking paper clip, became one of the computing age's most mocked, if not reviled, characters. Early Windows users were forced to click him out of existence over and over again as he popped up to give advice of sometimes questionable value. Plus, he's a talking paper clip. Kind of creepy.
 
Then-CEO Bill Gates retired Clippy in 2001, though he was brought back in 2011 for a Microsoft Office tutorial -- but only if users chose him.
Then there was the Pets.com sock puppet. Amusing enough at first, the puppet's schtick had already started getting old by 2001, when the site went belly up, its once-ballyhooed stock worth a whopping 22 cents a share.
 
Will Facebook's privacy dino catch on? Or will he (or she) be mocked into extinction? Only time will tell.
 
On Twitter, some users Friday were calling the creature a "safeasaur" or a "privasaurus."
 
The New York Times said the Zuckasaurus "could suffer the cruel fate of other tech industry cartoon characters if Facebook slips on its promise to be more mindful of users' privacy."
 
Meanwhile, we'll just be thankful it's not purple.

Facebook wants to listen to your music and TV

Facebook is to release a new feature on its mobile app that "listens" to your music and TV shows.


If the song or show is recognised by the app, users can publish the information on their profile or to selected friends.


The service hopes to take advantage of the "second screen" trend, which sees fans of TV shows in particular sharing their experiences on social networks.


However, some users have privacy concerns.

 
The feature, which will be available in a few weeks' time, uses the microphones inside users' smartphones to detect nearby music or TV shows.
 
As the user begins writing a status update, a small animated icon will appear at the top of the app.
 
If the app detects the appropriate audio signals and finds a match from its database, the user can then share what he or she is watching or listening to.
 
Facebook says the feature can be turned off at any time, the audio recording is not stored anywhere and the device cannot identify background noise or conversations.
 
"If you share music, your friends can see a 30-second preview of the song. For TV shows, the story in News Feed will highlight the specific season and episode you're watching," Facebook said in a statement.
 
The company hopes this new method of sharing user listening and watching habits will take advantage of the five billion status updates related to TV and music experiences that the social networking giant sees on a yearly basis.
 
However, automating part of the sharing process has left some users suspicious, with Nicole Simon commenting on TechCrunch that: "While the idea is nice and technology really interesting, I have no interest in Facebook 'observing' my audio and surrounding. Yes, it starts currently as opt-in, and only on occasion, but there is no trust from my side for even that."
 
Advertising and Shazam
 
The BBC understands that this new feature was not specifically designed to enhance Facebook's advertising. However, the company could push an advert to a user's phone based on their tracked listening habits.
 
This is in keeping with Facebook's current approach to advertising, which uses publicly provided information on users' profiles to push advertisements that are more relevant to each individual user.
 
The basic idea behind Facebook's feature is not a new one - since 2002 Shazam, which has recently seen a $3m investment from Sony Music Entertainment, has been providing a similar audio recognition service, with its website describing itself as "a mobile app that recognises music and TV around you".
 
Users of Shazam - all 450 million of them - can not only share their listening habits with other users of the app, but they can also push their updates to Facebook and Twitter.

HP to cut up to 16 000 more jobs

HP announced Thursday that it will cut an additional 11,000 to 16,000 jobs, after previously revealing plans for 34,000 layoffs.


The news came as part of the company's second-quarter financial results, which were in line with analyst expectations. Shares rose 5% Friday after slipping in after-hours trading Thursday evening.


HP said the latest layoffs would come across all its business units and geographic locations, and would generate $1 billion in annual savings beyond the $3.5 to $4 billion projected from the previously announced cuts.

 
"No company likes to decrease the work force, and we recognize that this is difficult for employees," CEO Meg Whitman said in a conference call with analysts. "I think everyone understands the turnaround we're in."
 
HP originally announced the layoff plans in 2012 in an effort to streamline its teetering PC and services businesses. The company has been contending with consumers' shift from PCs to mobile devices, as well as a declining printing business and some ill-fated acquisitions.
 
The company employed roughly 317,500 people worldwide as of late last year. Executives said on Thursday's call that they don't expect to announce additional rounds of layoffs.
 
Whitman took over as CEO in late 2011, inheriting a bloated company in need of restructuring. So far, she seems to be having some success -- HP's second-quarter sales dropped slightly versus last year, but earnings rose from $1.1 billion to $1.3 billion.
 
The company's stock had increased 13.6% so far this year as of Thursday's close -- making it a Top Four performer in the CNNMoney Tech 30 index.
 

Oddly, HP's earnings were released early at around 3:30 p.m. ET. Companies typically release their financial statements after the stock market closes at 4 p.m. ET. HP did not provide an explanation for its early release.
