An interesting situation has developed in Brazil that has opened up the clash between a tech titan and a legal powerhouse. A Brazilian Supreme Court judge has just ordered an investigation into Elon Musk, the owner of social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter. This inquiry has been triggered after Musk’s refusal to block certain accounts that the Brazilian judge found inappropriate and had ordered them to be taken down. Musk, a self-proclaimed defender of the free speech, argued that the judge’s order was unconstitutional and refused to block the accounts. If Musk indeed refuses to budge then X might face heavy penalty or may even outright banned in the country.


Apple embraces Retro Game Emulators

Apple, which is known for its strict App Store policies, has made a significant change by allowing retro game emulators. These emulators will let you play classic games from older consoles on your iPhone or iPad.

However, there’s a catch – Apple requires developers to ensure the emulators comply with copyright laws. This means users likely won’t be able to download pirated games directly through the emulators. The reasons behind Apple’s decision are unclear, but it could be due to factors like increased competition in the mobile gaming market or pressure from lawsuits regarding app store restrictions.

Meta to Expand Labeling of AI-made Content

Meta is taking a bigger step towards transparency by expanding its labeling system for content created or altered with artificial intelligence. Previously, Meta only labeled videos manipulated to make someone appear to say something they didn’t. Now, the label “Made with AI” will be applied to a wider range of content, including images and audio, whenever Meta’s system detects a Ai generated content. By labeling AI-made content, Meta aims to increase user awareness and help prevent the spread of misinformation or manipulated media. Although this is a welcome step, the effectiveness of the system and the potential limitations remains to be seen.
