The case against Amazon for arbitrarily increasing the price of e-books A lawsuit has been filed against Amazon for allegedly raising the price of e-books in collaboration with five book publishers. A law firm called Hagens Berman has filed a lawsuit against Amazon in US federal district court. According to the firm, the retail price of the e-book increased as the publisher offered Amazon higher commissions as well as other expenses. E-books have been developed in collaboration with publishers such as Amazon and HarperCollins, Hatchet Book Group, Penguin, Random House, Simon & Suster, and Macmillan. These five publishers also account for 80 percent of the e-book market in the United States. It is mentioned in the writ petition that the huge commission paid to Amazon is also affecting the price of e-books sold in the market.

Apple is entering the search engine business to compete with Google The US Department of Justice and Capitol Hill's antitrust hearing against Google are seen by rival Apple as a good opportunity. Reports published in international news organizations believe that Apple can develop a competitive search engine that will overtake Google. While the wave of discouraging anti-competitive practices continues, such moves by companies have dominated the entire tech industry, creating huge competition. Apple has always been interested in search technology, but the subtle but significant changes to the latest version of its iPhone operating system, iOS 14, have signaled that.

Chinese hackers spreading malware in the US from fake McAfee software Google says hackers linked to the Chinese government are spreading fake McAfee antivirus software and spreading malware to users' devices. In a blog post, Google said a group of hackers had been involved in a phishing attack earlier this year that had thwarted former US Vice President Joe Biden's presidential campaign. A similar group of hackers from Iran tried to target President Trump's campaign but failed. Google has named this group APT 31 (Advanced Persistence Threat 31). Under this, users are given an email link, which when clicked downloads malware hosted on GitHub. Hackers are then allowed to upload and download files and execute their commands. The group used services such as GitHub and Dropbox to carry out attacks, making it more difficult to track them. Google has also warned that such APTs pose a further threat to the US election. https://blog.google/threat-analysis-group/how-were-tackling-evo

This is the second attempt to send a man to the moon after the success of the first Apollo mission to land on the moon in 1972. "We're going to the moon again to inspire a new generation with scientific discoveries, economic benefits, and inventions," said Jim Bridenstine, NASA's administrator. According to the American newspaper ABC News, in 2021, NASA will test its new powerful rocket, a space launch system, and Orion spacecraft. The first woman will be sent to the moon, and water and other resources will be sought under the Artemis scheme. With

It is worth noting that these modern robots are especially popular. And in some robot models now, the ability to understand the emotions of others is a non-existent thing. The robots to be hired by the US spy agency are said to be powered by artificial intelligence technology called artificial intelligence, and these robot models are said to have the ability to think automatically. Artificial Intelligence Artificial intelligence is a method of generating micro-intelligence using a computer or machine.
