Trust banks plan to sue Toshiba over 2015 accounting scandal
http://news.yahoo.com/mitsubishi-ufj-trust-sue-toshiba-over-2015-accounting-013206178--sector.html
By Taiga Uranaka and Makiko Yamazaki TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese trust banks are preparing to sue Toshiba Corp over its 2015 accounting scandal, a fresh headache for the conglomerate as it scrambles to offset a separate imminent multi-billion dollar writedown. Chairman Shigenori Shiga is ready to step down to take responsibility for the upcoming charge - estimated at around $6 billion, local media have also reported. The announcements on Friday failed to clear up much of the uncertainty surrounding Toshiba and its shares lost 4 percent in Monday morning trade.

Silicon Valley puts money and muscle into fighting Trump immigrant curbs
http://news.yahoo.com/silicon-valley-puts-money-muscle-fighting-trump-immigrant-011820263--finance.html
Silicon Valley took the lead over the weekend in corporate resistance to President Donald Trump's clampdown on immigration, financing legal opposition, criticizing the plan, as well as helping employees ensnared by his executive order. In an industry that has long depended on immigrants and celebrated their contributions - as well as championing liberal causes such as gay rights - there was little initial consensus on exactly how to respond to Trump's move on Friday. The action triggered a global backlash, and sowed confusion and anger after immigrants, refugees and visitors were kept off flights and left stranded in airports.

http://news.yahoo.com/toshiba-shares-fall-report-trust-banks-preparing-sue-010157679--sector.html
Shares of Toshiba Corp tumbled as much as 5.8 percent in early trade on Monday after a newspaper report that some trust banks are preparing to sue the company for damages. The Asahi Shimbun reported that several trust banks including Mitsubishi UFJ Trust and Banking Corp [MTFGTB.UL] are set to sue Toshiba after its share price tanked due to a massive accounting scandal that has upended the company. On Friday, Toshiba said it would sell a minority stake in its memory chip business as it urgently seeks funds to offset an imminent multi-billion dollar writedown on its U.S. nuclear business.

Kalanick’s pledges follow a blistering response from people on Twitter and elsewhere to his original statement on Trump’s immigration ban, as well as Uber’s decision to continue serving JFK airport during a reported taxi strike.

Elon Musk asks for help to rewrite Trump's immigration ban
http://www.theverge.com/2017/1/29/14431926/elon-musk-asks-for-help-to-rewrite-trumps-immigration-ban
Yesterday, Elon Musk responded to President Donald Trump’s executive order regarding an immigration ban, saying that it was “not the best way to address the country’s challenges.” Following up with a Tweet today, he urged his followers to read the order, and asked for specific amendments, saying that he would “seek advisory council consensus” and would present the recommendations to the President. Please read immigration order. In December, Musk joined President Donald Trump’s Strategy and Policy Forum, along with several other high-profile business leaders, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg.

From Apple to Tesla, Silicon Valley’s biggest tech companies thrash Trump’s new immigration policy
http://news.yahoo.com/apple-tesla-silicon-valley-biggest-tech-companies-thrash-204558426.html
President Donald Trump this past Friday signed off on an Executive Order which restricts refugees from 7 predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States for a period of 90 days. In turn, Trump's new immigration initiative has been widely criticized from all angles and has sparked sharp criticism and waves of protests across the country. Notably, tech industry giants have been particularly vocal in their opposition to Trump's new immigration policies. This past Friday, Google CEO Sundar Pichai sent a heartfelt email to Google employees ( obtained by The Wall Street Journal ) stating that as many as 187 Google employees may be affected by the aforementioned travel ban. Pichai added that the search giant will do any and everything in its power to help them. “We’re upset about the impact of this order and any proposals that could impose restrictions on Googlers and their families, or that could create barriers to bringing great talent to the US,” Pichai said. “It’s painful to see the personal cost of this executive order on our colleagues.” Also entering the fray, Apple CEO Tim Cook over the weekend sent out a company wide email expressing similar concern regarding Trump's immigration policies. Incidentally, it's worth noting that Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was himself the son of a Syrian immigrant. Cook's letter to Apple employees, via Business Insider , can be read below: Team, In my conversations with officials here in Washington this week, I've made it clear that Apple believes deeply in the importance of immigration -- both to our company and to our nation's future. Apple would not exist without immigration, let alone thrive and innovate the way we do. I've heard from many of you who are deeply concerned about the executive order issued yesterday restricting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries. I share your concerns. It is not a policy we support. There are employees at Apple who are directly affected by yesterday's immigration order. Our HR, Legal and Security teams are in contact with them, and Apple will do everything we can to support them. We’re providing resources on AppleWeb for anyone with questions or concerns about immigration policies. And we have reached out to the White House to explain the negative effect on our coworkers and our company. As I've said many times, diversity makes our team stronger. And if there’s one thing I know about the people at Apple, it’s the depth of our empathy and support for one another. It’s as important now as it’s ever been, and it will not weaken one bit. I know I can count on all of you to make sure everyone at Apple feels welcome, respected and valued. Apple is open. Open to everyone, no matter where they come from, which language they speak, who they love or how they worship. Our employees represent the finest talent in the world, and our team hails from every corner of the globe. In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, "We may have all come on different ships, but we are in the same boat now." Tim As for other tech companies taking a stand, Lyft over the weekend promised to donate $1 million to the ACLU to help them fight on behalf of refugees. "Banning people of a particular faith or creed, race or identity, sexuality or ethnicity, from entering the U.S. is antithetical to both Lyft's and our nation's core values,” Lyft said in a statement. "We stand firmly against these actions, and will not be silent on issues that threaten the values of our community.” In a similar vein, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings took to Facebook where he characterized Trump's immigration plan as patently un-American. Trump's actions are hurting Netflix employees around the world, and are so un-American it pains us all. Worse, these actions will make America less safe (through hatred and loss of allies) rather than more safe. A very sad week, and more to come with the lives of over 600,000 Dreamers here in a America under imminent threat. It is time to link arms together to protect American values of freedom and opportunity. Also of note is that Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky promised to provide free housing for refugees unable to stay in the United States. https://twitter.com/bchesky/status/825517729251684352 Tesla CEO Elon Musk also chimed in on the matter. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/825502400454594561 Some other statements of note include remarks from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Box CEO Aaron Levie. Nadella relayed the following via LinkedIn . As an immigrant and as a CEO, I’ve both experienced and seen the positive impact that immigration has on our company, for the country, and for the world. We will continue to advocate on this important topic. And perhaps taking the strongest position of all, Levie had this to say on the matter. https://twitter.com/levie/status/825424282679283712 We'll make sure to update this post as the saga continues to play out.

How a group of Croatian filmmakers are making a Blade Runner fanfilm
http://www.theverge.com/2017/1/29/14430964/blade-runner-croatian-filmmakers-fanfilm
While we wait, a trailer for a Blade Runner fanfilm from a group of Croatian filmmakers is just the thing to tide us over. Slice of Life will be a short science fiction film set in the world of Blade Runner. The trailer certainly has the look and feel of the Blade Runner universe down, from the noir atmosphere, the neon signs and billboard-sized advertisements that defined the original film.

The robots of the future will be coming soon, rolling along at a lumbering pace with those goods you just ordered.

Starship is launching a pilot project of robotic deliveries of parcels, groceries and prepared foods in early February in the US capital Washington, with a similar test taking place in Redwood City, California.

UK Military opts for iPhone 7 over Android for secured communications
http://news.yahoo.com/uk-military-opts-iphone-7-over-android-secured-200116171.html
In a decision that underscores the iPhone's stringent security protections, the UK Ministry of Defence recently opted to go with Apple's iPhone 7 as the "device of choice" for sensitive communications that warrant the utmost security against malicious actors. According to a new report from TechRepublic , the telecommunications company BT Group is already hard at work implementing heightened security safeguards on the iPhone 7 for military and defense personnel. Once finalized, users with secured iPhones will be able to adjust the security mode of their device depending on the level of sensitivity a particular communication demands. What's more, the report relays that BT is also working on methods to develop "secure storage containers" for top-secret data. Interestingly enough, Steve Bunn, BT's technical business manager for defence, explained that their initial efforts to roll out a secured communications device began with work on a Samsung Note 4. "But as more and more development and testing was done," Bunn explained, "the security associated with it wasn't deemed to be sufficient, so that's why we moved [to iPhone]." Following the report, BT Group, in an apparent effort to remain as diplomatic as can be, issued a follow-up statement indicating that the Note 4's security wasn't inadequate. "We would like to clarify that the MoD has not expressed any views about the suitability of dual-persona technology from specific handset/technology vendors and is prototyping a range of devices," the statement reads. Indeed, it's not as if iPhone has always been or is even currently the universal device of choice for hyper-sensitive communications. To wit, many security-minded organizations use heavily modified Android smartphones such as the GSMK Cryptophone 500, the Boeing Black, and the pricey Solarin.
