Russia considers 'unplugging' from internet
Russia is considering whether to disconnect from the global internet briefly, as part of a test of its cyber-defences.
The test will mean data passing between Russian citizens and organisations stays inside the nation rather than being routed internationally.
A draft law mandating technical changes needed to operate independently was introduced to its parliament last year.
The test is expected to happen before 1 April but no exact date has been set.

'Free' apps cost hundreds of euros without you knowing it
Android users must pay attention to the Play Store.
Apps that offer a free 'trial subscription' will charge hundreds of euros unannounced after the end of that period.
Google does not do anything for the time being.
Among other things, the app with the name Voice Recording Free participates in these practices.
Once you have installed the app, you will be asked to start the free trial subscription.
If you do not cancel this subscription within three days, you will receive a bill of 210 euros.
That happens monthly.
If you do not realize that the money is being debited, the bill may rise sky high.
Other apps such as UnZip and Flashlight also offer the subscriptions.
The most striking thing is that the payment is not even for functionality, but for removing advertisements.
So you only pay for not seeing advertisements.

Anyone working on a substantial contract with the US state of New Jersey

That's if proposed legislation – coincidentally shaped by a maker of work verification software – is approved.
What's more: New Jersey is not alone.
These rules are being mulled in nearly two dozen states across America.
Selling 911 location data is illegal—US carriers reportedly did it anyway
Three of the four major wireless carriers have been accused of breaking US law by selling 911 location data to third parties.
AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint sale of GPS data called "unquestionably illegal."
Around 250 bounty hunters and related businesses had access to AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint customer location data, according to documents obtained by Motherboard,
The documents also show that telecom companies sold data intended to be used by 911 operators and first responders to data aggregators, who sold it to bounty hunters.
The data was in some cases so accurate that a user could be tracked to specific spots inside a building.

Boeing Promised Pilots a 737 Software Fix Last Year, but They’re Still Waiting
A delay in a software update after a Boeing 737 Max 8 like this one crashed in Indonesia in October is being scrutinized after the crash of another Max 8 in Ethiopia last weekend
Weeks after a deadly crash involving a Boeing plane last October, company officials met separately with the pilot unions at Southwest Airlines and American Airlines.
The officials said they planned to update the software for their 737 Max jets, the plane involved in the disaster, by around the end of 2018.
It was the last time the Southwest pilots union heard from Boeing, and months later, the carriers are still waiting for a fix.
After a second 737 Max crashed, on Sunday in Ethiopia, United States regulators said the software update would be ready by April.
