Toshiba Corp said on Wednesday it would book a pretax profit of 90 billion yen ($801.7 million) for its first quarter ending June, on the sale of its while good business to China's Midea Group Co Ltd. The company said it had agreed with Midea to sell a stake of 80.1 percent stake in its white goods unit for about 53.7 billion yen. The profit from the transaction exceeded the deal price since the former reflects the unit's debt that will be removed from Toshiba's balance sheet, the company said. More»

A California computer scientist who has studied the economics of cybercrime and pushed the auto industry to address hacking threats to vehicles will be awarded one of the world's top computing prizes on Wednesday, underscoring the central role that cybersecurity plays in business and government. Stefan Savage, a professor at the University of California, San Diego, will receive the Association for Computing Machinery's ACM-Infosys Foundation Award. Earlier this month, the association also gave its top prize - the A.M. Turing award - to two cryptographers, Whitfield Diffie and Martin Hellman. They were recognized for developing public-key cryptography and digital signatures in the 1970s, which laid the groundwork for much of what protects Internet communication. "A lot of the important work in computing has something to do with security," ACM Chief Executive Robert Schnabel told Reuters ahead of the newest announcement. "This used to be what happened in the computing rooms in back offices, and now it is in our cars, and the devices implanted in our bodies." More»

Snapchat is making new changes to give its users a better experience. You can now send video in Snapchat chat mode and you can finally access your camera roll from the messaging screen while you're talking to your mates. Other new features include more than 200 stickers like walruses, sloths and aliens - which always come in handy. There is now also an option to invite people into a video call even if they're not already in the chat, plus there are options to chat via audio. If they don't pick up, or you just want to send them a reaction using other means, you can record a short audio or video "note" and it will be waiting for them the next time they open the app. Snapchat introduced chat in May 2014, allowing users to communicate via text and video chat for the first time. Video chat only worked when both users were in the chat, and would end if you removed your finger from the screen. Since then, other popular messaging apps have continued to add features. More»

Changes to how Instagram content will appear in the app's feed have sparked a backlash among some of its users. The app plans to switch to "algorithmic timelines" - sorting posts according to users' interests - rather continuing to list them chronologically. Celebrity posters, who are worried their photos may no longer be seen by as many people, have urged their followers to "turn on notifications". But Instagram said there was no reason to panic. "We're listening and we assure you nothing is changing with your feed right now," the photo-sharing app said in a tweet. The shift will bring the app in line with the way news feeds are ordered on Facebook, which is owned by the same company. More»

The Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration (CRCICA) ruled Monday against Etisalat Misr, concerning its dispute with Orange Egypt over interconnection fees amounting to 418 million Egyptian pounds ($47.1 million). Etisalat asked to pay 285.190 million pounds in favor of Orange Egypt in addition to interest of delay in payment and all fees of arbitration. Interconnection is crucial for communicating across networks, and makes it possible for the subscribers of two different operators to communicate with each other. Interconnection involves a linking up of one telecom operator to the infrastructure facilities of another with certain prices that differ from one company to another. More»

The Oculus Rift has finally launched after years of hype, and with it many reviews from people who had the opportunity to play with it early. Unfortunately, some of the reviews were pretty harsh. Despite the hype, analysts have been growing skeptical that this will be the breakout year for virtual reality that everyone had anticipated with the release of Oculus Rift, a virtually reality device owned by Facebook Inc “Oculus Rift is the 2016 product you hope your neighbor buys,” The Wall Street Journal’s Geoffrey Fowler said in his review. “You’ll definitely want to try it, but there is little reason to own one unless you’re a serious gamer.” The skepticism has been routed in the fact that headsets are still very clunky and overpriced. The Rift must be used with a pricey gaming console -- the best of which recommended by the company is called Asus and retails for about $1,500, Fowler says. The technology has yet to prove itself beyond a niche gaming market, despite sweeping claims from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who bought Oculus for $2 billion in 2014, that it will one day change the way people communicate.

Samsung has officially launched its mobile wallet service in China, in co-operation with local vendor UnionPay. Instead of using cards, the service allows shoppers to use their smartphones to pay for in-store purchases. Last month, Apple launched its own Apple Pay system in China, also in partnership with UnionPay. China's smartphone market, the largest in the world, presents a huge business opportunity for mobile-payment systems. Samsung Pay and Apple Pay will now compete with Alibaba's Alipay, which currently dominates China's electronic payments market. However analysts told the BBC that mobile payment services provided by Alipay and WeChat were so dominant in China that international newcomers such as Apple and Samsung would face "an uphill battle" to win market share.

Yahoo Inc has set an April 11 deadline to submit preliminary bids for its web business and Asian assets, The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday, citing sources. Yahoo asked bidders details regarding financing, conditions or approvals that would have to be met on their end, and what key assumptions they would be making by deciding to move forward with a deal, the Journal said, citing a letter sent to possible bidders. A deadline for preliminary bids in April could mean that Yahoo could close a deal by June or July, the Journal said. Yahoo could not be immediately reached for a comment outside regular business hours. The faded Internet pioneer launched an auction of its core business in February after it shelved plans to spin off its stake in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. Activist hedge fund Starboard Value LP, which owns about 1.7 percent of Yahoo, launched a proxy fight last week in an attempt to overthrow the entire board of Yahoo. More»

The FBI is asking businesses and software security experts for emergency assistance in its investigation into a pernicious new type of "ransomware" virus used by hackers for extortion. "We need your help!" the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a confidential "Flash" advisory that was dated March 25 and obtained by Reuters over the weekend. Ransomware is malicious software that encrypts a victim's data so they cannot gain access to it on their computers, then offers to unlock the system in exchange for payment. Friday's FBI alert was focused on ransomware known as MSIL/Samas.A that the agency said seeks to encrypt data on entire networks, an alarming change because typically, ransomware has sought to encrypt data one computer at a time.
