Apple has quietly removed the “Beats by Dre” webpage from its website ahead of its Apple event on Tuesday, as it prepares to launch a new, lower-cost HomePod and AirPods Studio headphones.


As noted by Apple Terminal, the landing page for Beats products can no longer be found on Apple’s website. The Wayback Machine has a snapshot of the page in its original form from October 2, while the most recent snapshot from October 9 shows the page as down, suggesting Apple removed it sometime between these two dates.

Over the last couple of weeks, MacRumors has independently observed a gradual removal of all links to Beats’ support website from Apple’s own support pages. Apple also quietly retired its Beats Updater utility that lets users update the firmware of their Beats Wireless headphones, earphones, and speakers.

Apple still sells Beats-branded products on the headphones and speakers section of its

CPI(M) as agency removes FIR from website

October 12, 2020 | website | No Comments

New Delhi, Oct 12 (PTI) Reacting to the CBI removing the Hathras rape case FIR from its website hours after putting it up, CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Monday said slammed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, saying his eagerness to transfer the case to the investigating agency was “obvious”.

The Left parties have been demanding a court monitored probe in the matter and had opposed the transfer of the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

“UP CM ‘s eagerness asking CBI to investigate the horrendous Hathras crime is now obvious. It is imperative for the Courts to monitor this investigation, deliver justice & punish the culprits. CBI must not be used, once again, to absolve a crime, denying justice,” said Yechury in a tweet tagging a news report regarding the removal of the FIR from the CBI website.

New Delhi, Oct 12 (PTI) Hours after putting the Hathras rape case FIR on its website, the CBI removed it sensing possible violation of a Supreme Court order that FIRs in cases of rape and sexual assault, including those against minors, should not be put in public domain by police.

The agency, however, did not retract or remove its media statement from the website.

The FIR withheld the name of the Hathras victim, concealed using a whitening ink, but it was decided to withdraw it from public domain to avoid unnecessary controversy, sources said.

In December, 2018, a Supreme Court bench headed by Justice Madan B Lokur directed the print and electronic media to not reveal the identity of victims of rape and sexual assault ‘even in a remote manner’.

The apex court said FIRs in cases of rape and sexual assault, including those against minors, should not be put

Facebook has removed 276 accounts that used fake profiles to pose as right-leaning Americans and comment on news articles, often in favor of President Donald Trump, the company announced Thursday.

The platform also permanently banned an Arizona-based digital communications firm that it said was behind the fake accounts.

The move was prompted by reporting last month in The Washington Post that a pro-Trump group known as Turning Point Action was paying teenagers to post coordinated, supportive messages, a violation of Facebook’s rules.

Facebook and Twitter have been regularly removing fake accounts — both domestic and foreign — that try to insert themselves in the U.S. political discourse and influence the election. But social media companies face broader threats around misinformation and voter suppression that at times come from President Donald Trump himself.

The latest network Facebook removed became active before the 2018 midterm elections

Hathras case: CBI removes FIR from website

October 11, 2020 | website | No Comments

Issues revised press release on take over “attempt to murder” case.

Just hours after posting an FIR and a press statement on taking over the investigation into the Hathras gang rape and murder of a Dalit woman, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) removed the same from its website.

The CBI formally took over the case after the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) issued a notification authorising the agency to investigate the case, and registered an FIR early on Sunday under Section 307 (Attempt to murder), 376(D) (Gang rape), and 302 (Murder) of IPC and Section 3(2)(v) of the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989.

  • Facebook removed a post from President Donald Trump on Tuesday that falsely claimed COVID-19 was less deadly than the flu, CNN first reported.
  • In the post, Trump said COVID-19 was “far less lethal” than the flu in “most populations.” In fact, the US coronavirus death toll in the first nine months of 2020 would already make it the second-deadliest US flu season on record by far.
  • The post violated Facebook’s rules on COVID-19 misinformation, which bans false claims about the severity of the virus.
  • Trump posted the same message to Twitter, which did not remove the post but instead added a public-interest notice saying the tweet broke its rules on COVID-19 misinformation.

In the wake of reports surrounding the police arrest and apparent suicide attempt of former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, the Trump campaign is quietly disappearing Parscale from its website, the Daily Beast reports.

“Since Tuesday, the campaign has removed a video of Parscale from the homepage of its ‘Army for Trump’ election monitoring operation,” the Beast’s Lachlan Markay writes. “It also deleted a page on the main campaign website featuring a video of Parscale and Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law and senior campaign adviser. The video of their discussion, billed as a Q&A on the state of the campaign, has also been removed from YouTube. Those deletions were first flagged on Twitter by the writer Jeryl Bier.”

Parscale was campaign manager for Trump until he was replaced by former White House political director Bill Stepien in July. Police

Google has removed this week 17 Android applications from the official Play Store. The 17 apps, spotted by security researchers from Zscaler, were infected with the Joker (aka Bread) malware.

“This spyware is designed to steal SMS messages, contact lists, and device information, along with silently signing up the victim for premium wireless application protocol (WAP) services,” Zscaler security researcher Viral Gandhi said this week.

The 17 malicious apps were uploaded on the Play Store this month and didn’t get a chance to gain a following, having been downloaded more than 120,000 times before being detected.

The names of the 17 apps were:

The official Black Lives Matter website no longer includes language encouraging the “disruption” of the “Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.”

The language had been featured on the site’s “What We Believe” page, in which the group had laid out its support for various extreme policies and ideals that went beyond police reform and brutality. Attempts to access the page now yield a message that reads, “Page Not Found. Sorry, but the page you were trying to view does not exist,” the Washington Examiner first discovered on Monday.

The page had described the group as a “global Black family” that engages “comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts,” according to an archive.

“We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work ‘double shifts’ so that they can mother in private even as
