The CNIL sanctions Google and Facebook for not allowing users to easily refuse cookies – Lexology

Cookies have now been a hot regulatory topic for some time, especially in France where the CNIL ranked cookies in its top-three investigation priorities for the last two years and initiated a variety of guidance and enforcement actions. In this context, the French authority concluded year 2021 with two significant decisions against Google and Facebook regarding the means to refuse cookies. In the two decisions, the CNIL criticized Google and Facebook for not offering internet users a means to refuse cookies as easily as they can accept them. The French authority fined Google a total of 150 million euros (€90M for Google LLC and €60M for Google Ireland Limited) and fined Facebook 60 million euros. It also enjoined both to “modify. . .the methods for obtaining the consent of users located in France to the reading and/or writing of information in their terminal, by offering them a means of refusing these operations that is as simple as the mechanism for their acceptance” with a daily penalty of €100,000 per day of delay in complying with the injunction after three months of the notification of the decision.   » Read More

Best baseball movies based on true stories | Pittsburgh Pirates

Among the dozens of movies that tell stories about baseball, some of the most beloved are those that were written for events that actually happened. “Based on a true story” films bring a slice of history back to life, and, if effective, make us think (and debate). Today, we continue our movie roundtable series with four movies known for being true-to-life: “A League of Their Own,” “42,” “The Rookie” and “Eight Men Out.” Our panelists -- Mark Bowman, Ian Browne, Christina DeNicola, Alyson Footer, Steve Gilbert and Bill Ladson -- conducted a spirited debate, diving into the nuances of each film. A note on the selection process: All movies debated were placed into brackets, which brought forth a little bit of a conundrum, given the high volume of terrific baseball movies that could easily fall into more than one category. “Best Ensemble Cast” was probably the most wide-ranging; after all, it’s fair to say 80 percent of all baseball movies had A-plus, A-list casts. But we placed movies in only one bracket each,  » Read More

People Are Already Streaming Pokémon Legends Arceus Gameplay On Twitch – Kotaku Australia

Screenshot: Twitch The upcoming Pokémon Legends Arceus is a game that fans have been absolutely frothing for. The first open-world, real-time game in the series officially releases on Friday, however, some have already managed to get their hands on it. Not just that, but they’re streaming it too. While I don’t condone illegal activity, I’m personally quite enjoying being able to see gameplay of the game early. If you’d like to see it for yourself, they’re very easy to find on Twitch on the Pokémon Legends Arceus section of the streaming website. On the other hand, how on earth are people already playing and streaming the game? Considering The Pokemon Company’s general secrecy when it comes to releases, with most publications only getting copies of the game on the day of launch, this comes as a surprise to many. VGC spotted on social media that players have somehow gotten their hands on the game files and have been sharing them online, allowing others to emulate the game on their computers. Screenshot: Twitch According to one streamer who won’t be named, he’s playing the game on a Ryujinx emulator with the .xci file type. The streamer says that he is currently halfway through…

Calling All Effy Stonem Stans—The 2014 Tumblr Girl Is Back | ELLE Australia

The chokehold this aesthetic had on a generation is second to none.Jan 23, 2022 10:00pmThere's no question that the biggest trend to come out of 2022 is one we never suspected—nostalgia.From Y2K to the controversial indie sleaze, it seems that the 2014 Tumblr Girl has now also fallen victim to Gen-Z's prey. While most trends are cyclical and can be tracked by the "20 year rule", given this look is only eight years out of fashion we're a little surprised that the aesthetic has made a comeback so recently. For those of us that were there, you'll know this era was characterised by an unprecedented obsession with Skins golden girl Effy Stonem and our subsequent efforts to channel her enviable soft-girl grunge style and mysterious allure.While quality blogs were all the rage in the early 2010s, and the controversial influencer Acacia Brinley the style's poster child, the increase of black-and-white moody screenshots of shows like Pretty Little Liars and The Vampire Diaries soundtracked to The Cinematic Orchestra's 'To Build A Home' surfacing on the platform paved the way for the early editions of the Tumblr girl.The pseudo-alt Tumblr girl was set apart from other subcultures of the time by her…

WhatsApp will soon allow you to transfer your chats from Android to iOS, but it'll require another app

Unlike other apps like Telegram, WhatsApp has been quite slow at releasing chat transfer features. Luckily for us, WABetaInfo found a new feature in the latest WhatsApp beta that will allow you to transfer your WhatsApp chat history from Android to iOS. However, you will need to use Apple‘s ‘Move to iOS’ app. Let’s do a quick refresher on WhatsApp’s current chat transfer abilities. Moving over your chat history from iOS to Samsung devices is currently available. Additionally, WhatsApp and Google worked together to allow iOS to Pixel phone chat transfer. Going from iOS to Android 12 devices with your WhatsApp chats will be allowed in the future, and Android to iOS transfers have been teased by the head of WhatsApp Will Cathcart for months. Thanks to these screenshots from WABetaInfo, we can finally see what the feature will look like. The app will ask for your permission to restore your chats and warns you that the import cannot be done later if you skip the step. Once you start the transfer, the app will ask you to keep your phone unlocked and the app open. It’s reported that the chat history transfer will require using the ‘Move to iOS’…

IND vs SA: Twitter Reacts As South Africa Win Thrilling Final ODI To Whitewash India 3-0

Indian bowler Deepak Chahar’s rearguard act went in vain as South Africa managed to win a thrilling final ODI to whitewash India 3-0 in the ODI series. Chasing 288, the visitors were once again propelled by a second-wicket partnership between Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli. Both of them reached their fifties before being dismissed. Shreyas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav got starts but couldn’t convert them into anything substantial. However, a stunning partnership for the eighth wicket between Chahar and Jasprit Bumrah tilted the scales in the Men in Blue’s favor. Image Source: Twitter Chahar smashed his way to a 31-ball 50 and looked set to take the visitors home. Unfortunately, a lapse in concentration saw him throw his wicket away with just 10 runs remaining. The tail couldn’t wag further and the last two wickets fell within five runs to hand the Proteas a 4-run victory. Earlier, the Proteas got off to a poor start. They lost their first three wickets with just 70 runs on the board. However, as has been the case throughout the series, India failed to break the fourth wicket stand. Quinton de Kock and Rassie van der Dussen put on 144 runs for the fourth…
