Russia bans the sale of smartphones and computers without pre-installed specific Russian software and applications.

The law, signed by Vladimir Putin, enters into force on July 1 and aims to encourage Russian technology companies.

The government will compile a list of legally affected devices as well as a list of applications that need to be pre-installed by the manufacturer.

Russia's controversial "sovereign Internet" law entered into force recently- a measure that is expected to ultimately enable the government to monitor electronic information flows in real time, cut off access to content it deems "dangerous," and isolate the Runet as a defense against foreign cyberattacks, RFERL reported.

These measures are part of the tightening of control over online content in recent years.

PM Borissov: I Am Confident that Next Year we Will Have a Car Investor in Bulgaria

We are ready for car factories, at the moment there are a few big companies that are considering investment in Bulgaria. I am confident that with all that we do, we will have an investor next year, Prime Minister Boyko Borissov said in a speech after the presentation of the revolutionary 3D i-Cockpit, made in Bulgaria, which is the first real 3D cluster in automotive production, introduced in Peugeot's newest cars, the government press office reported.

"A month ago, we opened a Mercedes factory in Plovdiv, which produces lights, turn signals, stoplights; cables are in Dimitrovgrad; in Ruse – remote controls. […] I am sorry that in the context of all the negative news that is being disseminated, Bulgarians are unable to enjoy [the fact] that these beautiful designs are actually made by Bulgarian engineers and technologists. It is very important that we work with universities to open more engineering majors that will add more engineers to this cluster. On Thursday, arms companies are coming, we have a meeting for joint production in Bulgaria. I also see a very good opportunity in armoured vehicles, tanks,” the prime minister added.

Facebook with a New Photo Transfer Service

Facebook with a New Photo Transfer Service

Facebook has announced that it is launching a new photo transfer service from and to other platforms. Users will be able to transfer videos and photos from one account to another with a few clicks, without first having to download them to their computer, vesti.bg reported.

The service is being phased in for users in different countries, and should be available worldwide by the end of the first half of 2020. Initially, it is compatible with Google Photos, and other platforms will be gradually added.

The service has been developed through the Data Transfer Project, a common open source project for IT companies to facilitate the transfer of information between their services when users request it. Facebook says the information will be encrypted and can be transferred after further password entry.

“For almost a decade, we’ve enabled people to download their information from Facebook,” Steve Satterfield, director of privacy and public policy at Facebook explained. “The photo transfer tool we’re starting to roll out today is based on code developed through our participation in the open-source Data Transfer Project.”

The new software is still being tested and will therefore initially be available to a limited number of users. They will gradually become more, and according to their feedback, additional changes in the service may be made.

The first users to access the new feature are in Ireland. Facebook is also urging other companies to join the Data Transfer Project. The project already involves Apple, Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Twitter and more. Therefore, it is expected that their services will gradually be able to transfer consumer data to each other more easily, as it is one of the requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
