Aviation cyber-attacks, online-to-offline technology & encryption by default
Well, it looks like the anti-trust investigation into Google is gathering steam. Global photo agency Getty Images will join the European Union’s complaint against the tech giant. Getty can now participate in hearings and submit any relevant evidence to the European Commission, which is the EU’s governing body. And it's likely to expand the scope of the investigation. Boom Bust’s Ameera David weighs in.
Erin Ade sits down with Charlie Leocha – publisher of “Consumer Travel” and founder of Travelers United. Charlie tells us how a weak US economy has impacted the travel industry – especially at the beginning of the summer travel season – and gives us his take on airlines raising prices while making travel less comfortable.
Ameera is joined by RT correspondent Lindsay France to talk about the Polish National Airline hack. Lindsay tells us how the airline’s infrastructure and passengers were affected.
After the break, Bianca Facchinei takes a look at changes in traditional delivery services. Relying on the postal service or UPS for package delivery is quickly becoming less common due to the rise of mobile technology.
Erin Ade investigates how Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce company that had a record-breaking initial public offering in the United States last year, is getting into the so-called online-to-offline market in a big way.
And in The Big Deal, Ameera and Edward Harrison discuss Bruce Schneier’s call for making encryption by default the standard across the internet.
