Google settles Buzz Privacy Class-Action lawsuit

Mountain View, Calif. -- On October 7, 2010, federal district court Judge James Ware preliminarily approved a class action settlement related to the launch of Google Buzz last February. The Settlement resolves a lawsuit filed by Gmail users who alleged that Buzz's launch violated their privacy.

“We are satisfied with the agreement and are glad to move forward,” said a Google spokesperson. “We have always been committed to offering users transparency and choice in Buzz and all our products, and will continue to work together with users to provide the best experience possible.”

Immediately following the Buzz launch in February of this year, Google moved quickly to make significant product improvements including increased visibility, an updated start up processfeaturing auto-suggestions, and adding Buzz to the Google Dashboard. In April, Google rolled out a "second chance" encouraging Buzz users to check and verify their privacy settings.

The Settlement Agreement acknowledges the important changes Google has made to Buzz. As part of the Settlement Agreement, Google will create an $8.5 million fund, the majority of which will go to organizations focused on Internet privacy education and policy, and will make additional efforts to educate users about the privacy aspects of Buzz.

Gary E. Mason, counsel for the Plaintiffs in the litigation, said, “We feel this Settlement provides many benefits to Class Members, including providing a significant amount of money to non-profit groups committed to educating users about Internet privacy and ensuring that Buzz users can join this on-line community without compromising their privacy.”

The Court will consider final approval of the proposed Settlement on January 31, 2011. Full details on the Settlement are available at

Indian Manufacturing in the Era of Hyper-Inflation: ASSOCHAM study

Mumbai, Oct 21, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio / pressreleasepoint) The prolonged hyperinflation regime has so far been exerting maximum pressure on the country’s manufacture sector. However, this can’t be taken for granted for long time: The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) cautions.

“Even as the prices of primary articles and energy inputs continue to push headline inflation to new heights ever since the economic recovery started taking place in the early 2009,  the rise in the prices of manufactured products, particularly that of non-food manufactured products, has not been commensurate to pass on the effect of inflation to the consumers and as a result the manufacturing sector of the country is  taking burden on to it. If this trend continues India would not be able to sustain its present rate of growth as its main driving force in the recent past would run out of steam” said Dr. Swati Piramal, President, Assocham.

According to the Assocham Eco Pulse (AEP) Study titled“Indian Manufacturing in the Era of Hyper-Inflation”, the continued hyper-inflation has forced the Indian manufacturing sector to resort to stringent cost cutting measures. The much higher increase in the prices of manufacturing inputs like primary products, wages and fuel as compared to that of manufactured products have been eroding the price cost margins of firms. Stimulus measures that were found helping the sector initially to cope up with this problem has lost much of their relevance owing to their withdrawal to a large extent. Now, with the fears of double dipped recession gradually gaining in the world economy, there are questions on the sustainability of remarkable performance that the manufacturing sector has been performing in the recent past. The ASSOCHAM cautions both the policy markers and the industry about the impending serious growth hurdles.

ML-L3 Wireless Remote Control for Nikon D40, D40x, D60, D80 & D90 Digital SLR Cameras by NIKON

The remote needs to be in front of the camera, yes, so that the IR receiver on the front of the camera can pick up the remote's signal, but depending on the lens' angle of view, you may or may not have the remote within the frame. Obviously, the wider the lens, the more likely the remote will be in the photo.

Another trick to avoid the remote being visible in your photo is to use the camera's timer. Set the camera to Remote Timer so when you press the button you have time to hide the remote before the shutter is released.
