General election 2017: Tory plan to let young erase online past

The Conservatives say they want to give people the power to demand social media companies delete any embarrassing content they posted as children. The largest firms would be required, if requested, to erase material created by someone before they turned 18. Ministers hope for co-operation from the likes of Facebook and Twitter but may impose fines if they do not comply. Labour said despite the “tough talk” ministers had proved unwilling to “stand up” to the industry in the past. But Home Secretary Amber Rudd told BBC 5 live the ...

Government bid to delay air pollution plan fails

The UK Government has lost a court bid to delay publication of its air pollution strategy, and must now release it before the June election. Courts had given the government until Monday 24 April to set out draft guidelines to tackle illegal levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) pollution. But late last week, ministers lodged an application to delay their release until after the general election. They argued that publication would fall foul of election “purdah” rules. These limit government announcements with political implications during the election period. But on Thursday, ...

Trump's tax plan could cost an estimated $5.5 trillion

Mnuchin outlines ‘massive’ tax cut for businesses President Trump may have been on to something when he breezily referred to himself as the “king of debt.” The principles of his tax plan — presented Wednesday in a one-page document — offered enough detail to suggest that Trump’s preferred tax changes will add a ton to deficits. Given that the plan is similar to what Trump proposed on the campaign trail, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget did a rough cost estimate of his latest ideas and concluded they could ...

AMD Updates Ryzen’s Windows Power Plan, Boosts Performance With New Chipset Driver

When AMD launched Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 earlier this year, it recommended that reviewers test with Windows 10’s power plan set to “High Performance,” as opposed to the “Balanced” configuration we typically prefer for testing and that Windows uses by default.

FCC Chairman Announces Plan to Roll Back Net Neutrality Regulations

Many of us hoped the net neutrality battle was over two years ago when the FCC implemented Title II classification of internet service providers. However, the election of Donald Trump and ascendance of FCC commissioner Ajit Pai to the chairmanship suggested the fight was about to pick up again. Indeed, chairman Pai has released a plan to roll back the 2015 Title II “common carrier” reclassification, essentially gutting net neutrality in the US. By reclassifying ISPs under Title II of the telecommunications act, the FCC was able to apply some ...
