Top EU court bars mass collection of mobile, Internet data

Oct. 6 (UPI) — The European Court of Justice ruled Tuesday that member states cannot collect mobile and Internet data en masse, saying it’s illegal to gather such “general and indiscriminate information.”

The court ruling answered several cases brought by Privacy International and La Quadrature du Net.

Austrian privacy advocate Max Schrems had filed a lawsuit based on work by whistle-blower Edward Snowden that showed the United States doesn’t offer sufficient protection against surveillance by public authorities. His lawsuit opened the initial inquiry that lead to Tuesday’s decision.

“EU law precludes national legislation requiring a provider of electronic communications services to carry out the general and indiscriminate transmission or retention of traffic data and location data for the purpose of combating crime in general or of safeguarding national security,” the court said in a statement.

The court ruled in recent years that prevailing EU law bars member states from mandating

Maps From Free-To-Play Russian Game Halo Online Could Come To The Master Chief Collection

In 2015, Microsoft worked with Saber Interactive on a free-to-play Halo game for Russia called Halo Online. It was short-lived, however, as Microsoft canceled it before it even left beta.

The game may get a new lease on life, as Microsoft has teased that maps from Halo Online could be incorporated into Halo: The Master Chief Collection in the future.

Design director Max Szlagor said in a blog post that included among the many, many other new features that are being discussed for MCC are Halo Online maps. “Is there an opportunity to bring over some of the Halo Online maps? There’s a lot of options out there and it’s all dependent on what’s feasible and everything takes time and has to be measured against the bug list, backlog, and feature priorities,” Szlagor said. “All in all, we are definitely looking towards more goodness and continuing with more seasons.”

OSIRIS-REx will attempt its first asteroid sample collection next month

NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft is almost ready to touch down on the asteroid Bennu, NASA announced today. On October 20th, OSIRIS-REx will make its first attempt at collecting a sample of the asteroid’s rocks and dust. This will be the first time NASA has collected pieces of an asteroid and the largest sample return from space since the Apollo program.

OSIRIS-REx is about the size of a large van, and it will touch down in a sampling area that is about the size of a few parking spaces — 52 feet in diameter. The area is surrounded by building-sized boulders, which could make the landing a bit more challenging. 

Once OSIRIS-REx has landed, a robotic sampling arm will perform Touch-And-Go (TAG) collection. The mission is to collect at least two ounces, or 60 grams, of rocky material. If the first TAG attempt in October does not collect enough material, OSIRIS-REx has

Attunely is raising more cash to support increasing demand for its machine learning platform used by debt collection agencies. The Seattle startup raised a $6 million Series A round from Framework Venture Partners, Anthos Capital, Vulcan Capital, and others.

Founded in 2018 and spun out of Seattle-based startup studio Pioneer Square Labs, Attunely crunches data related to debt records and consumer interaction history, in addition to other information such as macroeconomic trends, to produce a “score” for consumers who owe payment.

Attunely CEO Scott Ferris said the company saw a surge in activity earlier this year from creditors and recovery agencies that are “seeking technology solutions to optimize revenue recovery on call center resource constraints.”

“In addition, they are hyper-sensitive to only contacting consumers who are receptive and have a propensity to pay,” Ferris added. “Our machine learning platform does not require personally identifiable
