A smartphone app that allows people to upload, store and share their old photographs has been launched by two British entrepreneurs. The founders hope that the Clixta app can act both as a place where families or other groups can share old photos privately and as a public archive for British social history. They are working with foundation the Copyright Hub to ensure that each photograph has a digital identifier. The app will be free initially. The idea was formed when Dean Newsome and Shaun Cutler - who describe themselves as middle-aged dads rather than typical entrepreneurs - started talking by the side of a football pitch in Morpeth, Northumberland.

A US court has made a woman unlock her iPhone with her fingerprint. Magistrate Alicia G Rosenburg signed a seizure warrant for the "fingerprint on iPhone device" of Paytsar Bkhchadzhyan, of Los Angeles, on 25 February, while she was in police custody. It authorised officers to "depress" her fingerprints on the sensor. Campaigners say making suspects decrypt their phones means they are testifying against themselves, which contravenes the US constitution's fifth amendment. Apple's Touch ID system is one of two ways to unlock the encrypted contents of an iPhone - the other being to input the passcode. But the fingerprint can be used only within 48 hours of the phone being locked. More»

Zain Group, the mobile telecommunications company operating in Sudan, announced launching the 4G LTE services in a number of Sudanese cities. In cooperation with Sweden’s Ericsson, a multinational corporation that provides communication technology, the 4G LTE service will be operated to include Khartoum, Port Sudan, Al-Ubayyid, and other cities. The Swedish company will be responsible for the establishment of the essential infrastructure while Huawei Corp will take over the next phase of the project. Meanwhile, Egypt is still studying the release of new 4G frequencies within this month of May. This was a long overdue step for Egypt to take, at a time when about 157 countries around the world have already included 4G services for their clients, said Yasser El-Kady, Minister of Communication and Information Technology. Egypt was one of three countries in Africa did not put investments in these services including Libya and Chad. More»

So far in 2016, Apple Inc. is the dog of the Dow. After an underwhelming earnings report led to the shares' worst week since January 2013, Apple stock extended its losses to kick off May, closing down 0.18 percent on Monday. Bespoke Investment Group notes that Monday's negative close marks eight straight sessions in the red for Apple—something that last happened in July 1998, and has now happened only four times in the company's history. More than $79 billion in Apple's market capitalization has been erased over the past eight sessions. The company's heavy weighting in major sector and benchmark indexes, coupled with the stock's terrible two-week stretch, has made $4 billion in assets of exchange-traded funds evaporate over this stretch. "Smart beta" ETFs are poised to trounce their more popular peers, Bloomberg's Eric Balchunas observes, in the event that this span of underperformance continues. More»

Yahoo chief executive Marissa Mayer will receive $54.9m (£37.4m) in severance pay if she loses her job in the sale of the troubled internet firm. In February, the internet company announced it was offering its core business for sale, after several years of falling advertising sales. She has attempted to turn the company's fortunes around with a mobile-first strategy since 2012. But critics say she has failed to stem the decline. A filing to the US Securities and Exchanges Commission says Ms Mayer will receive a package of cash, stock and other benefits if she is removed as chief executive within a year of any sale. More»

Amazon.com Inc is investing between $250,000 and $500,000 in Bluetooth technology company TrackR to extend the reach of its Alexa virtual assistant, according to a source familiar with the matter Alexa is the cloud-based system that controls the Amazon Echo, a speaker system launched by Amazon in 2014 that has emerged as a surprise hit.

Uber drivers in New York state have formed an association to strengthen their hand in dealing with the ride-sharing service, labor leaders said on Sunday, days after the company agreed to a $100 million settlement with drivers in two other states. More than 1,000 Uber drivers signed membership cards with the association, known as the Amalgamated Local of Livery Employees in Solidarity, or Alles, the association said in a statement. The recent settlement with Uber Drivers in California and Massachusetts over expense claims also allowed them to form associations that can bring grievances to the attention of management. Alles said it would work to protect members against car companies, insurance firms and others, while urging New York City and state to tighten regulations on Uber and its ride-sharing competitors.

A Brazilian judge ordered wireless phone carriers to block access to Facebook Inc's WhatsApp for 72 hours throughout Latin America's largest country on Monday, the second such move against the popular messaging application in five months. The decision by the judge in the northeastern state of Sergipe applies to the five main wireless operators in Brazil and affects WhatsApp's more than 100 million users in the country. The reason for the order is not known due to legal secrecy in an ongoing case in the Sergipe state court. In a statement, WhatsApp said the company is "disappointed at the decision" after doing the utmost to cooperate with Brazilian tribunals. The decision "punishes more than 100 million users who depend upon us to communicate themselves, run their business and more, just to force us hand over information that we don't have," the statement said, without elaborating.
