(2) Dune Lawrence and Selina Wang, It's the US Army v the Drone Army.
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/a ... us-pentagon-problem

Quote:

"On Aug. 2 the US Army issued a memo directing its personnel to stop using drones made by SZ DJI Technology Co and to uninstall all DJI software. The Army had become aware of security holes in the Chinese company's products, according to the memo" which referenced a classified Army Research Laboratory (ARL) report

From Aug 12 to 14, 2017 "Kevin Finisterre, a software engineer * * * tweeted a series of screenshots showing that the DJI Go app contained a backdoor that allowed it to be altered remotely, without the knowledge of users or the iOS or Android app stores. In the iOS version, someone using the email address Spy.liu@dji.com had added code that allows the app to track users' GPS coordinates. (Yes, really. Spy.)

Note:
(a) summary underneath the title in print: DJI can't ignore Pentagon warnings about its civilian products
(b) The print and online versions are same.

(4) Joe Weisenthal, Love in a Bubble.
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/a ... y-for-finance-geeks

Note:
(a) summary underneath the title in print: Tulip Fever, a romance set during tulip mania, is the rare movie for geeks
(b) The print and online versions are identical.
(c) This review says "in Tulip Fever it’s the financial story that’s fascinating, while the romantic angle for the couple is a little tired." The clause (about romantic angle) seems to be consensus among film critics. This review, though, is interesting for its perspectives.
(d) "This dichotomy between a rowdy bar and a house of worship is a perfect manifestation of Karl Marx's essay 'The Power of Money.' In it, Marx credits Shakespeare with identifying two essential properties of money: At times it's divine, and at times it's 'the common whore of mankind,' as the Bard wrote in Timon of Athens."
(i)
(A) Karl Marx, The Power of Money. 1844.

(A) talent (n): "a unit of value equal to the value of a talent of gold or silver"
