The evolution of technology has opened the door to new forms of moral intimidation. In fact, between cyber harassment and “revenge porn”, the digital world is gradually becoming a modern means of psychological aggression. Incidentally, an application named “Bully Bai” had recently auctioned Muslim women.

According to reports, this Indian app posted several pictures of Muslim women against their sandstone, while indicating that they were ” for sale “. The developers didn’t want to get rich, their goal was only to damage the dignity of these women.

The application was hosted by the Github platform who later deleted it. Moreover, this is not the first attempt at such degradation. Nevertheless, under pressure, the police in India were finally able to identify a suspicious potential.

Women humiliated and degraded online

In July 2020, a website had created 80 profiles of Muslim women by calling them “one night stands”. To do this, the developers used photos posted online on the personal accounts of victims. The platform was called Sulli Deals. A carefully chosen name, because the term “Suli” is a pejorative expression used by far-right Hindus.

Only a few months after the closure of Sulli Deals, a new application, Bulli Bay, see the day. This time they are not just offering one day deals, but literallybuy a muslim wife. Even though no transaction was made, some victims said on Twitter that they felt “traumatized” and “horrified”. Thus, many natural and legal persons are demanding justice.

“In addition to blocking the platform, it is important to punish the offenders who create such sites. “

Who are the culprits?

Many of his wives have lodged a complaint against the developers and those who shared the images on Twitter. However, six months after the “Sulli Bai” case, no arrests have yet been made. This has increased the frustration, anger and fear of Muslim women in India.

“It is indeed disappointing to see the impunity with which these hatemongers continue to attack Muslim women, without fear of any sanction. “

The pressure on the Indian police intensified day by day. On the one hand, the Minister of Informatics and Technology, Ashwini Vaishnaw, told the press that “the new app had been created because the creators of Sulli Deals had not yet been punished”. On the other hand, Satej Patil, Home Minister of Maharashtra State, accuses platforms such as GitHub of being “infused with misogyny and communal hatred”.

As a result, following extensive investigations, the Mumbai police finally caught theindividual behind the Bulli Bai app. The alleged culprit is named Niraj Bishnoi, he is a second-year student of the Vellore Institute of Technology in Bhopal.

There are almost 1 billion 5G users Ericsson report shows

According to a report by Ericsson cited by The Verge, by the end of this year, the number of 5G subscribers in the world will reach 1 billion.

Of course, this is far from the performance of 4G networks, which are now used by about 5 billion people, but still this is a fairly significant part of the market.

There are almost 1 billion 5G users. Ericsson report shows that operators often ask for more money for such tariffs.

Of course, 5G adoption is far from uneven. In North America, about 35% of subscribers will use 5G networks by the end of this year.

At the same time, the report indicates that operators often ask for more money for the higher speeds offered by new networks. Dividing into corresponding tariffs is popular among operators in Western Europe, but overall, 25% of operators worldwide charge extra for 5G. And the average markup is 40%.

Ericsson believes that, unfortunately, this trend will continue for several more years, as operators need to compensate for the costs of developing a new network.

Is Apple Helping the Chinese Government Fight Protests The company

The history of protests in China is overgrown with new interesting details related to IT companies.

Is Apple Helping the Chinese Government Fight Protests?  The company cut the AirDrop function in the Middle Kingdom

Just weeks before the protests began, Apple reportedly made a major change to how AirDrop works, and only in China. After updating to iOS 16.1.1, AirDrop in the mode of receiving messages from everyone became possible only for 10 minutes, after which AirDrop simply turns off. In normal mode, AirDrop has no time limit, as there is none now and all over the world outside of China.

The fact is that AirDrop is one of the ways protesters communicate, and not only in China. AirDrop works locally in smartphone-to-smartphone mode, without relying on external networks, so it cannot simply be blocked or read data. But in this case, for some reason, Apple decided to seriously change the function, although it did not turn it off completely.

The CNBC resource also notes that the corresponding update was released a month after Chinese President Xi Jinping was re-elected for a third term.

Recall that Huawei smartphones have been noticed that they automatically delete videos that depict events related to protests in China.
