EFF: Broad Coalition Urges Court Not to Block California’s Net Neutrality Law

Broad Coalition Urges Court Not to Block California’s Net Neutrality Law After the federal government rolled back net neutrality protections for consumers in 2017, California stepped up and passed a bill that does what FCC wouldn’t: bar telecoms from blocking and throttling Internet content and imposing paid prioritization schemes. The law, SB 822, ensures that that all Californians have full access to all Internet content and services—at lower prices. Partnering with the ACLU of Northern California and numerous other public interest advocates, businesses and educators, EFF filed an amicus brief today urging a federal court to reject the telecom industry’s attempt to block enforcement of SB 822. The industry is claiming that California’s law is preempted by federal law—despite a court ruling that said the FCC can’t impose nationwide preemption of state laws protecting net neutrality. Without legal protections, low-income Californians who rely on mobile devices for internet acce

Xiaomi Mi 10T series is here: All you need to know about the budget flagships

The Poco X3 makes a big trade-off in India, but is it for the best?

Image
It’s taken Poco two years since the launch of the original Poco F1 to come up with a fresh new design.

The Poco X3 was announced earlier this month and is available in Europe as the Poco X3 NFC. India, however, gets a variation on the global model with some notable changes under the hood.

Report: Google’s Fitbit purchase to get the green light from the EU

Image
Google’s purchase of Fitbit is reportedly set to gain approval from the EU. Reports suggest the company’s new concessions may appease the European Commission. The deal was initially announced in November 2019. Google’s deal to purchase Fitbit is set to gain approval from the EU, a Reuters report revealed on Tuesday. The deal has been under scrutiny since November 1, 2019, when Google’s intention to purchase the fitness hardware and service company was made official .
