Over 5 million people heeded to calls to boycott Egypt's mobile operators, a campaign founder told Aswat Masriya on Friday, pledging to launch a second call on Saturday titled "down with our networks". "Between five to eight million people participated in the campaign," said Ahmed Abdelnaby, citing "sources inside the mobile companies." Karim al-Fishawy of Egypt's National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority said "we cannot measure the impact of the boycott calls yet." The government authority does not work during the weekend and the impact can only be measured by Sunday, he said. Abdelnaby said Egypt's mobile service operators, Etisalat, Mobinil, and Vodafone Egypt "did not expect this level of participation." Head of Vodafone Egypt's Public Relations department Noha Saad said that her company "had no comment" regarding this campaign. On Thursday, a virtual movement called "Internet Revolution Egypt" launched calls to boycott Egypt's three mobile service providers from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m to protest "poor quality" and high prices.

Google launched a free music streaming service Tuesday, upstaging Apple’s release of its subscription service, Apple Music, next week. Google Play Music was launched two years ago as a paid service, but the Silicon Valley giant announced that it would feature a free, ad-supported version similar to streaming service Spotify or Internet radio Pandora. The service will focus on curated playlists focusing on different moods, activities and genres. “At any moment in your day, Google Play Music has whatever you need music for — from working, to working out, to working it on the dance floor — and gives you curated radio stations to make whatever you’re doing better,” wrote Elias Roman, Play Music’s product manager, in a statement. The service’s curated format is similar to Songza, a service Google acquired last July for a rumored $39 million. “Our team of music experts, including the folks who created Songza, crafts each station song by song so you don’t have to,” Roman continued.“If you’re looking for something specific, you can browse our curated stations by genre, mood, decade or activity, or you can search for your favorite artist, album or song to instantly create a station of similar music.” More»

Ericsson and Etisalat Egypt have won Global Telecoms Business Innovation 2015 Award for the ‘New Day – New Idea’ project, which gives subscribers better access to flexible mobile data services, Ericsson announced in a statement Tuesday. Winning in the category of wireless network infrastructure innovation, Ericsson and Etisalat were honored during a ceremony held at The GTB Innovation Awards in London in May. The Global Telecoms Business Innovation Awards highlight innovative projects in the global telecommunications industry, led by service providers and their technology suppliers. “We had strong growth plans for our mobile broadband services in the face of arduous competition and users’ demand for greater control. It was understood that greater service agility was required to realize the ‘New Day – New Idea’ project that would drive our business forward, supported by more efficiency, improved service delivery speed and the ability to deliver on customer expectations for transparency and control.” Saeed AlHamli, CEO of Etisalat Egypt said Etisalat Egypt rolled out Ericsson’s Integrated Policy and Charging (EIPC) solution to enhance services for both mobile broadband and ADSL Internet subscribers, allowing them to merge services into flexible bundles and access the Internet from different devices with the same subscription fee. EIPC is a scalable, flexible BSS solution that delivers decoupling, configurability, convergent real-time charging and policy support, a strong user-experience focus and reduced TCO. From his part, Rafiah Ibrahim, Head of Region Middle East, Ericsson, said: “We are pleased to have been recognized for this innovative project with Etisalat.” Through this partnership, Etisalat has created an invaluable competitive advantage in a rapidly evolving marketplace. This improved service agility empowers them to deliver flexible, seamless convergence across services and address new OTT revenue opportunities. Etisalat customers also now have greater control and billing transparency, thereby ensuring a vastly improved customer experience. We are proud of our work together.” More»

EBay Inc (EBAY.O) said it has sold its 28.4 percent stake in Craigslist Inc back to the online classified advertising company. Under a confidential settlement agreement, all litigation between the companies will also be dismissed, eBay said in a blog post. The companies have been feuding for years in civil court over allegations that eBay took a stake in Craigslist and then misappropriated confidential information while secretly planning its own classifieds site. EBay, which launched classified ad service Kijiji in the United States in 2007, bought the Craigslist stake in 2004. More»

The Chinese hacking group suspected of stealing sensitive information about millions of current and former U.S. government employees has a different mission and organizational structure than the military hackers who have been accused of other U.S. data breaches, according to people familiar with the matter. While the Chinese People's Liberation Army typically goes after defense and trade secrets, this hacking group has repeatedly accessed data that could be useful to Chinese counter-intelligence and internal stability, said two people close to the U.S. investigation. Washington has not publicly accused Beijing of orchestrating the data breach at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), and China has dismissed as "irresponsible and unscientific" any suggestion that it was behind the attack. Sources told Reuters that the hackers employed a rare tool to take remote control of computers, dubbed Sakula, that was also used in the data breach at U.S. health insurer Anthem Inc disclosed this year.

Several government websites here came under cyberattack Wednesday, apparently in retaliation against the country’s new controversial anti-terrorism Bill C-51. In a YouTube video, the hacking activists organization Anonymous claimed responsibility for the attack. “Greetings, citizens of Canada, we are Anonymous,” the video says by way of a monotone, robotic voice. “Today, this 17th of June, 2015, we launched an attack against the Canadian Senate and government of Canada websites in protest against the recent passing of Bill C-51, a bill which is a clear violation of the universal declaration of human rights. “Today, Anons around the world took a stand for your rights,” the video continued. “We now ask that you follow suit. Stand up for your rights, take to the streets in protest this 20th of June 2015. Disregard these laws which are unjust, even illegal.” More»

Technological materials do not have a local alternative, as Egypt is not a manufacturer of technology but one of the largest importers, according to an importer of technological materials and products. The importer, who preferred to remain anonymous, added that although the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) continues to sell the dollar to banks, putting it in the dollar interbank market, dollar shortages still exist. He noted that importers and importing companies are not against the CBE’s policies, but require facilities to avoid deficits that may occur in the event of an interruption or delay in imports. He added that importers continuously request that the CBE facilitate procedures to obtain materials to not delay the import process. Technology companies also wish to be excluded from current procedures so as not to negatively affect their business. More»
