Another entry in the saga: https://www.macrumors.com/2018/05/16/tidal-behind-on-royalty-payments/

Apple Music Competitor Tidal Allegedly Months Behind on Royalty Payments

Quote
Multiple sources have said that Tidal has not making timely payments to "three major international companies," claims confirmed by two Norway-based labels: Propellor Records and its distributor, Phonofile, a company owned by Sony.

Phonofile CEO Sveinung Rindal said that reports of delayed payments are correct, while Propeller Recordings CEO Frithjof Boye Hungnes said the company had not been paid since October. "People are talking about withdrawing [their music from TIDAL]; I think there is a pretty upset mood," said Hungnes.

That makes a lot of sense, its a shame that such games are played out in the corporate world but the potential to gain easy money seems to make folks act poorly

They're treading water. I think Jay Z was hoping Spotify, Google, Amazon or Apple would buy Tidal but it hasn't happened as all of them have their own music streaming services and they're doing massively better. Tidal is but a blip.

So they're massaging their numbers to make themselves look bigger than they really are to entice acquisitions.

Music streaming app Tidal has been accused of inflating audience figures for two albums - Lemonade by Beyonce, and The Life of Pablo by Kanye West.
A Norwegian-language newspaper claims the move would have led Tidal to have paid disproportionate royalties to the singers' record companies at the expense of other artists.

Tidal is part-owned by Jay Z. He is Beyonce's husband and a long-term friend of Kanye West.
Tidal has denied the allegations.

When you cant trust the data from a simple streaming server somethings definitely going wrong, we dont know whether theres been manipulation or not but we do know thats theres a lot of doubt as to the integrity of the server logs and with both sides accusing the other in respect of the dats intergrity one things for certain, someones not being honest.

I'll let you all decide for yourself  :suspious:

The problem as always with such services is that they are all about monetisation of the userbase, any reason they can think of to gather further current data on their users will be taken, I hate to state the obvious but its not much more than we have the capabilities for on this network, in thier model each user or group is a "channel" and you can toss images or video into the channel or indeed many channels.

I am still in wonder regarding just  how much the share price of this entity is considering it delivers so little bar its popularity, when the folks using it wake up to the fact that they have been keeping "facebook" fat on their information and recieve a diminishing need of the service they may just come to the realisation of the true price they have paid for losing their privacy across so many years, its not just your folks and friends whom have access to your data.

Report: Facebook still wants to put mic and camera (I mean smart speakers) in your house

https://liliputing.com/2018/05/report-facebook-still-wants-to-put-mic-and-camera-i-mean-smart-speakers-in-your-house.html

CNBC reports that “multiple sources” say Facebook is turning the M assistant originally built for Facebook Messenger into an Alexa/Siri/Google Assistant-style voice assistant, and “two people who have had discussions with the company” say that Facebook still plans to launch smart speakers that would be powered by the M assistant.

But with the company facing some backlash over privacy policies in the US, Facebook is said to be considering launching its speakers in other countries first.

According to CNBC, Facebook is currently working on at least two models. One sounds like it’s “just” a normal smart speaker that you interact with by voice. The other has a camera and touchscreen display and it could be used for video calls, among other things.

hell no... i dont want any of these so-called "smart speakers" anywhere near my home, and the device with the camera? hah!


"The telescreen received and transmitted simultaneously. Any sound Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it; moreover, so long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard. There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever the wanted to. You had to live- did live, from habit that became instinct- in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized."
-1984, Book 1, Chapter One, George Orwell


and just a thought; considering the case of count dankula; the UK government is really only a few business contracts away from being the 'thought police' over these smart speakers/cameras/assistants...

yet another crackdown on unrepresented off shore sites.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-40976600

Quote
Australia's federal court has ordered internet service providers (ISPs) to block dozens of popular pirate sites.
The crackdown prevents users from accessing 59 illegal torrent and streaming sites including Demonoid, EZTV, YTS, RARBG, 1337x and Putlocker.

A total of 160 domains have been blocked in two orders, including alternative routes to the Pirate Bay.
The blockades were requested by film studio Village Roadshow and Australian broadcaster Foxtel.

Many pirate websites are already banned in Australia, with the two new court cases bringing the total number of domains blocked in the country to 340.

As always the orders are granted simply because there is no one resident in Australia to refute the wild and outlandish claims made by the movie and music mafia, it's common practice when reporting news correctly to state the order was granted "ex parte" and thus uncontested akin to me suing the man in the moon for lighting up the night sky, looks good in the headlines but a pretty lame effort in the long run.
