Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Tuesday laid out a technology and innovation agenda ranging from connecting every U.S. household to high-speed internet by 2020 to beefing up cyber security and reducing regulatory barriers. A statement issued by her campaign said Clinton strongly supports the Obama administration's net neutrality rules requiring broadband providers to treat all data equally, rather than giving or selling access to a so-called Web fast lane. She will increase research and development budgets of the National Science Foundation and similar entities and will launch an initiative to train up to 50,000 computer science teachers, the statement said.

Microsoft is to offer "clearer options" for users upgrading - or not - to Windows 10. The move comes following months of criticism that Windows 10 was being forced upon users using what has been described as a "nasty trick". This week, a Seattle woman successfully sued the company for $10,000 over disruption caused by the software installing without, she said, permission. In recent months, in an apparent bid to accelerate adoption of Windows 10, Microsoft altered the way it asked users if they wanted to upgrade. It gave the Windows 10 update "recommended" status, normally reserved for critical security updates. If when prompted to update to Windows 10 users clicked the red "X", the upgrade would not immediately start. However, the update process would automatically be scheduled for a later time. More»

Communications and information technology industry is the second biggest economic sector in Egypt, the country’s communications minister Yasser El-Kady said on Tuesday. Communications sector has lately witnessed many achievements given that the current political leadership pays great concern for the sector, which represents now a backbone of the country’s development, El-Kady added. According to the American market research International Data Corporation (IDC), Egyptian communications and IT industry is expected to achieve a growth rate of $8.9 billion in 2016 and $10 billion in 2019. This rise is attributed to increased expenditures on IT services and software that will enjoy compound annual growth rates of 9 percent during the year of 2019. More»

Virtual reality pioneer Oculus has removed software locks that stopped people playing games made for its Rift headset on a rival device. The locks were introduced after VR fans made software called Revive that let people move or port Oculus games on to the HTC Vive. A software update for the Oculus Rift released over the weekend has stripped out the software controls. Revive developers said they were still in "disbelief" about the change. More»

South Korea's Fair Trade Commission (FTC) is investigating "some matters" relating to tech giant Apple Inc, the head of the anticompetition body said during a parliamentary hearing, without disclosing further details. Speaking at the hearing on Tuesday, FTC Chairman Jeong Jae-chan declined to comment on the specifics of the regulator's investigation when asked to do so by a South Korean lawmaker. Domestic media reports said earlier this month the FTC was reviewing details of the U.S. firm's contracts with South Korean mobile telecoms carriers. Apple didn't immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment. More»
