FTC says two bogus tech support operations scammed $120 million from customers

The Federal Trade Commission has temporarily closed two operations alleged to have tricked customers out of $ 120 million by providing bogus technical support. The commission has brought two cases against the groups, both of whom reportedly offered specious advice and fake security software to computer users, before charging money to “activate” the useless programs.

Jessica Rich, director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection said that both operations “prey on consumers’ lack of technical knowledge with deceptive pitches and high-pressure tactics to sell useless software and services to the tune of millions of dollars.” One of the FTC’s cases named a group that offered a piece of software known as “PC Cleaner” to consumers, a…

6 reasons real conservatives should defy Republicans and support net neutrality

A tidal wave of partisan politics is about to hit the FCC as it weighs its options for net neutrality regulation. Today, President Obama abandoned his hands-off approach by strongly urging the agency to adopt the most rigorous provisions of the Telecommunications Act, which would regulate internet providers more like the public utilities they actually are. That involvement will come at a cost; Obama’s closeness to the issue has already prompted rebuttals from Republican leaders who thrive on painting anything Obama does as nothing short of a total government takeover.

One of those Republicans is prominent Tea Party member and Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who quickly responded to the president’s statement this morning by saying “‘net…

Major Xbox One update with custom backgrounds and Twitter support is here

When you turn on your Xbox One this weekend, you might notice a few changes. Microsoft is rolling out one of the largest feature updates yet for its game console to all users starting this weekend. A year after launch, the console now has customizable backgrounds. You’ll be able to set an achievement image or any other photo from a USB drive as your homescreen wallpaper, replacing the black backdrop we’ve all been staring at for months.

That’s not the only new customization feature: the bio and location fields, which disappeared during the transition from the Xbox 360, are now back in your profile, and there’s a new “showcase” that allows you to mark a handful of achievements and gameplay clips to highlight to your friends.

One of the…

Desktop Linux is finally getting Netflix support

While Linux now underpins a great deal in the tech world — including the Roku and, most crucially, Android — desktop Linux to this day exists in a quiet cul-de-sac where the command line is still the preferred UI. As such, users running the likes of Ubuntu and Arch Linux have had more ready access to streaming content on their phones and TVs than on their computers. But now, after seven long years, Netflix is finally and officially making its way to Linux.

Netflix senior software engineer Paul Adolph wrote on the Ubuntu forums last night that devices running the latest version of the NSS security libraries will be able to run Netflix in Chrome without changing their browser’s user-agent. The change occurs as Netflix moves away from…

Anita Sarkeesian shares the most radical thing you can do to support women online

Anyone looking to support women suffering from harassment online has a surprisingly simple place to start, says Anita Sarkeesian, founder of the web video series Feminist Frequency. “One of the most radical things you can do is to actually believe women when they talk about their experiences,” Sarkeesian told the audience today at XOXO Festival in Portland. It’s radical in part because of misinformation campaigns organized against high-profile women that accuse them of making up the threats against them — and it’s an issue that Sarkeesian has recent experience dealing with.
