Google Home on Phone
We are all familiar with Google Home, the gadget which answers your audio queries instantaneously. Google Assistant currently requires a smartphone, a smart device like Google Home and a Wi-Fi network at home or office to connect them. The same features are now available to Indian phone users through a toll-free number. People can now call the number and ask questions to the Assistant.
 
All you have to do is to dial 000 800 9191000 from your Vodafone-Idea (currently, the service is available only on Vodafone-Idea) number and ask your question. You will get a response from Google Assistant instantly. The service is available in English and Hindi, as of now. Pretty Cool, huh?

    EU's top court backs removal of Facebook content globally
    In a major blow to social media platforms, the European Union's top court on Thursday ruled that Facebook may be asked to remove harmful content globally.
     
    The ruling of the European Court of Justice may have significant implications in expanding content takedowns from social media platforms. 
     
    The ruling came after a former Austrian politician sought an order to make Facebook remove a comment published by a user on that social network harmful to her reputation.
     
    Mme Eva Glawischnig-Piesczek, who was a leader of Austria's Greens Party, wanted Facebook to block access to the content globally.
     
    The ruling said that EU law does not preclude a host provider such as Facebook from being ordered to remove identical and, in certain circumstances, equivalent comments previously declared to be illegal. 
     
    In addition, EU law does not preclude such an injunction from producing effects worldwide, within the framework of the relevant international law which it is for member states to take into account. 
     
    The ruling said that Facebook is not liable for stored information if it has no knowledge of its illegal nature or if it acts expeditiously to remove or to disable access to that information as soon as it becomes aware of it. 
     
    "That exemption does not, however, prevent the host provider from being ordered to terminate or prevent an infringement, including by removing the illegal information or by disabling access to it," said the ruling. 
     
    "However, the directive prohibits any requirement for the host provider to monitor generally information which it stores or to seek actively facts or circumstances indicating illegal activity," it added.

    172 malicious apps found on Google Play Store
    Researchers have detected a total of 172 infected apps with over 335 million installs found on Googles Play Store in September alone.
     
    ESET researcher Lukas Stefanko said that the majority of those 172 malicious apps were harbouring adware, Threatpost reported on Tuesday. 
     
    "Unwanted ads or adware is popular category because after installation it does not request any further inputs, like banking trojans, and can simply generate revenue for developers right from the beginning," Threatpost quoted Stefanko. 
     
    "Also, it is not as difficult to create adware as it is to create Android ransomware or banking Trojans," Stefanko added. 
     
    The malicious category includes the applications that are infected by adware, subscription scams, hidden ads, SMS premium subscription, and more.
     
    As per the report, most of the applications that were found to be malicious have been removed.
     
    To recall, last month Google removed 46 apps from the marketplace belonging to Chinese mobile developer iHandy.

    The app economy is clearly stuffed with more crap than ever before, including the Apple App store.
