Microsoft's Bing has announced that it will encrypt its search traffic by default. Bing has already been offering users the option to encrypt search traffic for about a year and a half now.

With the move to encrypted search by default Bing will continue to pass along a referrer string so that marketers and webmasters will be able to identify traffic as coming from Bing.

08:22 EDTAAPLApple iPhone demand holding up better than expected, says Pacific Crest
Pacific Crest says its initial estimates of iPhone component orders for the September quarter indicate that iPhone demand should hold up better than it had previously expected. The firm adds that iPhone demand appears to have remained solid in recent months, which should enable Apple's Q3 EPS to beat expectations. Pacific Crest adds that its more upbeat view on the iPhone is "somewhat offset" by its less positive outlook on Apple Watch sales. Nevertheless the firm thinks that the iPhone's improved outlook reduces the stock's downside risk. However, it keeps a Sector Weight rating on the shares.
07:17 EDTAAPLUber previously had talks with Apple, Starbucks on logistics tie-up, WSJ says
Uber was reportedly in talks “in recent months” with Apple (AAPL) and Starbucks (SBUX) to create partnerships to help build its same-day product delivery program, but both companies instead went with startup courier service Postmates, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing people familiar with the matter. Uber launched its logistics service a year ago with plans to sign up with “dozens” of retailers, yet has announced partnerships with only six, the report says. Eat24, owned by Yelp (YELP), and GrubHub (GRUB) also held discussions with Uber but haven't reached any agreements, the report says. Reference Link

06:31 EDTFBBelgian Privacy Commission adopts first recommendation of principle on Facebook
The Belgian Privacy Commission said in a statement that on May 13 it adopted a first recommendation of principle on Facebook. "It has observed that Facebook 'processes' the personal data of its members, users as well as of all internet users who come into contact with Facebook. Facebook does this secretively: no consent is asked for this 'tracking and tracing' and the use of cookies. No targeted information is provided. The available information is vague and authorizes just about anything. Following the introduction of new worldwide terms of use by Facebook, a number of European privacy commissions queried Facebook, which was particularly sparing with precise answers and also refused to comply with the request to postpone the entry into force of the new terms of use. Facebook did not accept that it was bound by the national privacy legislation of Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. It rejected the competence of those countries' supervisory authorities for privacy. Facebook only accepts supervision by the Irish privacy commission and the application of Irish law.After months of unsuccessful correspondence and fruitlessly exchanging ideas, the Belgian Privacy Commission has now adopted a first recommendation. This document establishes first of all that the Belgian Privacy Commission is competent and that Belgian law also applies to Facebook, simply because any national supervisory authority is obliged to ensure privacy protection for its citizens. And Belgian law also applies because the Facebook Group has an actual establishment in Brussels, Belgium. At the request of the Belgian Privacy Commission the inter-university research center EMSOC/SPION conducted a detailed study into the way in which Facebook deals with its members' personal data. And that of citizens who do not use Facebook or who explicitly opted out of its service.The research results are disconcerting. Facebook disregards European and Belgian privacy legislation in several ways. In 10 chapters an equal amount of issues have been uncovered. It is the Belgian Privacy Commission's ambition to thoroughly look into these issues. Until today, the eighth chapter - 'tracking trough social plug-ins' - has been the focus of attention, because it does not only impact Facebook users but also virtually every Internet user in Belgium and Europe. Up to this day Facebook refuses to recognize the application of Belgian legislation nor the Belgian Privacy Commission. Until now it has always contested the findings of the EMSOC/SPION research report, but it has not provided concrete facts repudiating them. To the contrary: Facebook recognizes that errors, 'BUGS' have been uncovered." Reference Link
