Europol is ordered to delete personal data not associated with criminal causes

The European Union’s data protection control entity ordered its criminal agency, Europol, to remove all information related to individuals not linked to a proven crime.

The European Data Protection Supervisory Body, SEPD, commented on Monday that Europol already received a notification of this order at the beginning of the year, on January 3, as a result of an investigation initiated in 2019.

Europol will have to remove from its files all information not linked to any crime

The British newspaper The Guardian claimed to have access to internal documents, based on those who indicated that the personal data file handled by Interpol is equivalent in volume to “One fifth of all content in the United States Library of Congress”, without being these necessarily linked to criminal causes.

Against this background, the EDPS said that, as part of his investigation, he reproached Europol two years ago “For the continuous storage of large volumes” of those data, “Which represents a risk to the fundamental rights of people”, as pointed out from Associated Press.

The watchdog indicated that it imposed a six-month period for evaluating new data sets and deciding, based on known antecedents, whether to keep the information stored. The SEPD gave the criminal agency a 12-month margin to comply with the decision on the data it received before January 4.

However, the data protection entity commented that Europol has introduced some measures since that first notification, but has not fully complied with the requests entrusted to establish an adequate time range to store certain information. “This means that Europol kept these data for longer than necessary”said the EDPS.

‘A 6-month period for pre-analysis and filtering of large data sets should allow Europol to meet the operational demands of EU Member States that depend on Europol for technical and analytical support, while minimizing risks for the rights and freedoms of people »said Wojciech Wiewiórowski, supervisor of the SEPD.

Europol did not immediately respond to the announcement, limiting itself to denying the existence of irregularities and the EDPS did not disclose the volume of data stored by Europol, but did state that they are seeking to establish a middle ground between the safety of their citizens and the safeguard from the same EU.

Samsung is preparing a smartphone that will be weaker than

Smartphone Samsung Galaxy M54 lit up in the Geekbench database. Unfortunately, as previously reported, he will not receive any SoC Snapdragon 888, although this is expected.

Samsung’s mid-budget novelty will receive the same platform as the Galaxy A54. Probably, the Galaxy A34 will also receive it.

We are talking about the not yet presented Exynos 1380, which will replace the Exynos 1280. In the benchmark, the new SoC scores 750 and almost 2700 points in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively. And this is almost the level of Snapdragon 778G, that is, this is an excellent result for a mid-budget smartphone. True, we are only talking about processor performance, and we do not yet know which GPU the new SoC will receive.

It is also worth noting that the Galaxy M52 was also based on the Snapdragon 778G, and the Galaxy M53 received a slightly less productive Dimensity 900. Thus, the Galaxy M54 model, at least in terms of the processor part, will be slightly inferior even not to its predecessor, but to the device two years ago.

Bullitt Group and MediaTek want to launch a satellite enabled smartphone

The British manufacturer Bullitt Group, which produces devices under the brands CAT and Motorola, intends to release a smartphone with satellite communications. They want to implement this project together with the Chinese chipmaker MediaTek.

Bullitt Group and MediaTek want to launch a satellite-enabled smartphone

It is assumed that the new smartphone will provide calls and text data via satellite, although it is not yet clear how this will work. The device itself will be released in the first quarter of 2023.

The novelty has been developed for two years, so the project is nearing completion. According to Bullitt Group co-founder Richard Wharton, previously the seamless integration of satellite communications into a smartphone was accompanied by problems, but now they are solved.

The new phone will be the first to use MediaTek’s 3GPP NTN chipset. The software will keep track of what type of connection is currently being used – Wi-Fi or cellular network. The connection to the satellite will be carried out only in the absence of both of these options.

It is claimed that the time to connect to the satellite and send a message is about 10 seconds. This is longer than a regular connection, but still pretty fast.

Note that Apple already has this and Samsung will soon have it.

The GeForce RTX 4080 can also be overclocked to incredible

Galax continues to prove that they are one of the best when it comes to overclocking graphics cards. After the departure of EVGA, Galax as a whole is probably the only company that places a strong emphasis on this direction.

The GeForce RTX 4080 can also be overclocked to incredible frequencies.  Galax RTX 4080 SG took the frequency over 3.6 GHz on the core

The GeForce RTX 4080 SG model was able to overclock to a frequency of over 3.6 GHz on the core. More precisely, we are talking about a frequency of 3615 MHz. This is slightly less than the RTX 4090 HOF at 3.8 GHz, but it’s still an incredible figure. Especially if you keep in mind that the GeForce RTX 4080 SG is no match for the HOF versions. At the same time, it is not yet known whether Galax will release the RTX 4080 HOF.

Galax, unfortunately, does not disclose overclocking details, but it can be assumed that we are talking about the use of liquid nitrogen, as in the case of extreme overclocking RTX 4090 HOF.
