Google adds indoor positioning to Android’s Find My Device

Ars Technica - 1 hour 22 min ago


If you've ever lost your Android phone, it's usually a help to use Google's "Find My Device" service to see the phone's last known position on a map. As Google Maps get better and better, it makes sense to keep Find My Device up to date with the latest in mapping technology. With the latest update, Google is adding indoor mapping support to its lost device service.

While Google Maps has most of the great outdoors pretty well mapped, indoor mapping is the next great frontier. For indoor mapping, someone has to upload a floor plan to Google Maps and then set up some kind of indoor positioning system. Outdoor Google Maps can be powered by satellite imaging and photos from Street View cars, but there's no such shortcut for indoor maps, which require each individual building owner to enter data. Today you'll find indoor maps mostly for places like Airports, malls, stadiums, and other large businesses (here is an example). If you lose your device in one of these places and the indoor positioning system actually works, you'll now be able to get a pinpoint location in Find My Device.

This might actually work in your house someday, too. Google added 802.11mc support—AKA Wi-Fi Round Trip Time (RTT)—to Android 9 Pie, which allows Android devices to natively support precise indoor positioning and even indoor navigation. You'll need a constellation of Wi-Fi RTT-compatible routers for indoor positioning to actually work, and no consumer routers actually support it yet. Google has promised Wi-Fi RTT support will come to the Google Wi-Fi mesh router before the end of the year, though.

Amazon customers’ names and email addresses disclosed by website error

Ars Technica - 1 hour 32 min ago


Amazon customers woke up on Wednesday to an email saying a technical error caused the site to disclose their names and email addresses. While Amazon officials have said the emails are authentic, they aren’t providing additional details beyond what’s in the extremely terse communication.

Wednesday’s email doesn’t say how long customers’ personal details were disclosed or precisely where on the site the disclosure took place. It’s also not clear how many customers received the email and whether a geographic location, specific purchase, or other common thread caused certain customers to be affected.

Below is the text of an email sent to one Amazon customer:

Sorry Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook isn’t a “positive force”

Ars Technica - 1 hour 42 min ago

In a Tuesday interview with CNN, Mark Zuckerberg defended Facebook's handling of recent scandals and his own leadership of the company. He flatly rejected calls to give up his position as the chairman of Facebook's board and said he had no plans to fire his top deputy, Sheryl Sandberg.

He argued that despite Facebook's recent problems, the site "is a positive force because it gives more people a voice."

It's not surprising that Zuckerberg would defend his own company. But Zuckerberg is wrong: there's no reason to think Facebook is a "positive force" and a lot of reasons to think the opposite.
