Abu Dhabi state fund Mubadala is in talks with Reliance Industries about investing around $1 billion (roughly Rs. 7,576 crores) in the Indian conglomerate’s Jio platforms, three sources told Reuters. Twitter is separately also in talks with Mumbai-based Reliance to invest more than $1 billion (roughly Rs. 7,576 crores) in the digital startup, which houses music and movie apps as well its telecoms venture Jio Infocomm, another source added on Thursday.
“Clearly Jio’s platform is attracting a wide range of world-class investors, given its enormous potential to serve one of the world’s largest marketplaces,” Mubadala said in an email, without confirming whether or not talks were taking place.
Due diligence on a potential transaction with Reliance was already underway, one of the sources said.
If it goes ahead, the Jio Platforms investment would be the largest in an Indian firm by Mubadala, which is the second-biggest state investor in Abu
The US state of Arizona filed a lawsuit Wednesday accusing Google of committing fraud by being deceptive about gathering location data. Arizona attorney general Mark Brnovich said the suit resulted from an investigation launched two years ago after a media report that Google had ways of knowing where users were even if they opted not to share location information with the internet firm.
“While Google users are led to believe they can opt-out of location tracking, the company exploits other avenues to invade personal privacy,” Brnovich said in a release.
Today we filed a consumer fraud lawsuit against Google for deceptive and unfair practices used to obtain users’ location data, which Google then exploits for its lucrative advertising business.

The new move comes days after the contact tracing app crossed the mark of 10 crore registered users, 41 days after its launch in April.

If Android 10 battery life has got you down, maybe it’s time to start adding apps to the Battery Optimization feature.
The Android platform has come a long way since its early beginnings. I remember my first Android phone and how awkward it was to use. Even worse, I remember how bad the battery life was–I was lucky to get four to six hours out of that HTC Hero.
Nowadays however, Android battery life can meet or exceed your daily needs. Given the platform now makes use of artificial intelligence (AI) to help improve the longevity of the mobile power source, it’s become quite impressive. With my Google Pixel 4, I rarely run out of juice by the end of the day. One of the reasons for this is the battery optimization. This tool is what works with AI to improve battery life on the device.
