11:25 EDTAAPL, GOOGFTC investigating some companies in mobile app marketplace
The Federal Trade Commission issued a new staff report, “Mobile Apps for Kids: Disclosures Still Not Making the Grade,” examining the privacy disclosures and practices of apps offered for children in the Google Play (GOOG) and Apple (AAPL) App stores. Since FTC staff’s first survey of kids’ mobile apps in 2011, staff found little progress toward giving parents the information they need to determine what data is being collected from their children, how it is being shared, or who will have access to it. The report also finds that many of the apps surveyed included interactive features, such as connecting to social media, and sent information from the mobile device to ad networks, analytics companies, or other third parties, without disclosing these practices to parents. The report also states that FTC staff is launching non-public investigations to determine whether certain entities in the mobile app marketplace are violating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act or engaging in unfair or deceptive practices in violation of the Federal Trade Commission Act.

08:24 EDTGOOGSchneiderman, Gascon applaud Google for 'kill switch' incorporation
Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon issued the following statement on the release of Google’s new version of Android software, which will incorporate theft deterrent technology for the first time. Both Schneiderman and Gascon said, “We applaud Google for including a ‘kill switch’ solution in its new version of Android. The majority of smartphone owners now have access to an theft-deterrent solution. Through the work of the Secure Our Smartphones Initiative in concert with the smartphone industry, we are well on our way to safeguarding our loved ones from opportunistic thieves. But in order for these theft deterrents to effectively end the epidemic, they must be enabled by default so violent criminals lack the incentive to steal any smartphone. We will continue to encourage every actor in the smartphone industry, including Google, to take the necessary, additional step of ensuring this technology is opt-out on all devices.” Reference Link

07:48 EDTAAPLSony must decide quickly what to do with smartphone strategy, Nikkei says
Sony's (SNE) "One Sony" strategy is built around providing contents to consumers and smartphones are one of three pillars it sees for growth, but the strategy is "on the brink of collapse" as the company falls behind Apple (AAPL) and Chinese rivals, according to the Nikkei Asian Review. Sony officials are debating whether smartphone operations in Asia should be downsized and whether cutting 1,000 jobs, or 15% of its mobile communications workforce, would be warranted, according to the report.
