    Google, Apple asked if apps like TikTok must disclose foreign ties

    The chair of a U.S. congressional panel wrote to Alphabet's Google and to Apple on Friday to ask what if any disclosures mobile apps are required to make regarding overseas ties, a concern that follows reports of Chinese investment in popular apps such as TikTok and Grindr. Rep. Stephen Lynch, chairman of a subcommittee of the House of Representatives Oversight Committee, said in a statement that he had asked both Google and Apple to tell Congress whether they required app developers to disclose any non-U.S. ties. Concern over China acquiring sensitive data about U.S. citizens through social media apps is one of several sore areas in relations between the United States and China even as U.S. President Donald Trump's trade war with China fans suspicion between the world's two largest economies.

    Wall Street Weekahead: Trade deal removes major hurdle for rally in Apple and tech

    U.S. President Donald Trump's limited trade deal with China removes a major hurdle for Apple and other technology stocks that have already surged this year to record highs. China has agreed to boost imports of U.S. energy, pharmaceutical and agricultural products, although Chinese officials offered no details on the amount of U.S. goods Beijing had agreed to buy. If it is signed, Trump's long-awaited deal will be a relief to Apple, among the U.S. companies with the most to lose in the trade war between the world's two largest economies, along with chipmakers who make the components in its devices, which are mostly made in China.

    Sweden's central bank says to launch digital currency pilot project

    Sweden's central bank said on Friday it would sign a deal with consultancy firm Accenture to create a pilot platform for a digital currency, known as the e-krona.

    Why Cisco’s OpenRoaming could transform access to WiFi

    The remote Orkney Islands off northeastern Scotland may seem an unlikely frontier for the future of connectivity, but alongside the Canary Wharf business district in London, they are one of just two testing grounds for a new technology that promises to streamline access to the internet. OpenRoaming, which has been developed by US network equipment maker Cisco, allows users to connect automatically to trusted WiFi providers without ever having to go through a login process, mirroring the kind of seamless connections that users take for granted as they move around mobile networks with their smartphones. Combined with the latest generation of wireless WiFi 6 tech and 5G phone coverage, the potential for superfast, uninterrupted internet access is huge.
