If you bought something on Silk Road with bitcoin, the blockchain will remember it forever and possibly reveal your identity – BoingBoing
A common misconception is that bitcoin transactions are anonymous. The truth is, unless you are very careful about covering your tracks, your bitcoin transactions can be connected to you. And the transaction records on bitcoin's public database (the blockchain) can never be changed or deleted, meaning they will forever be searchable by authorities or anyone else. Andy Greenberg of Wired reports that researchers were able to "connect someone's bitcoin payment on a dark web site to that person's public account."
[T]he Qatari researchers first collected dozens of bitcoin addresses used for donations and dealmaking by websites protected by the anonymity software Tor, run by everyone from WikiLeaks to the now-defunct Silk Road. Then they scraped thousands of more widely visible bitcoin addresses from the public accounts of users on Twitter and the popular bitcoin forum Bitcoin Talk.
By merely searching for direct links between those two sets of addresses in the blockchain, they found mor ...

Supplier says Apple’s iPhone X production cut isn’t as big as recently reported – BGR
A report on Monday sent Apple’s stock down by 1.6% after revealing that Apple has purportedly cut iPhone X orders by 20 million for the current quarter, or half of the initial estimates. Apple, the same report said, would make 30 million non-iPhone X handsets during the period, including the iPhone 8, a number that hasn’t changed.
A day later, one of Apple’s iPhone X suppliers went on record to say the order cuts aren’t “that great.”
“Our understanding is that it is not that great,” Murata vice chairman Yoshitaka Fujita said when asked about the report Nikkei ran on Monday.
It’s surprising to see a supplier go on record about its dealings with Apple. But that’s all Fujita had to say on the matter, according to Reuters. The exec did not reveal any other details about Murata’s dealings with Apple for the iPhone X
Murata is one of the two makers of flexible printed circuit boards (FPCB) for the iPhone X, a...

Can Facebook fix its News Feed problem? – Recode – All
Recode’s Kurt Wagner explains how the social media giant is trying to make things right on the latest Too Embarrassed to Ask. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is devoting 2018 to fixing Facebook, and he has acted fast: In recent weeks, the social media giant has already announced major changes to the main source of its revenue, the News Feed, and acknowledged in a series of blog posts that social media can sometimes be bad for our psyches and for democracy.
On the latest episode of Too Embarrassed to Ask, Recode’s senior social media editor, Kurt Wagner, said Facebook is in a difficult uphill battle to win back the trust of its users.
“Honestly, we’re going to have to have a few more elections that don’t result in Russian meddling before people say, ‘Okay, maybe Facebook has that problem fixed,’” Wagner said. “That is years away. I don’t see Facebook shedding this problem for a long time...

A Spotify investor lays out the case for music streaming — including that it’ll replace radio (AMZN, GOOGL, MSFT) – Silicon Alley
Honeycomb Asset Management, a New York hedge fund started by David Fiszel, is bullish on streaming music.
People are paying about twice as much per year for streaming music now as they used to for CDs, says Honeycomb.
"In 2015, music industry sales grew sustainably for the first time in almost two decades, and entering 2018, we are still in the early stages of this evolution," Honeycomb said in its fourth-quarter investor letter.
Honeycomb gained 21% last year.
Streaming music has changed the music industry for the better, according to New York tech-focused hedge fund Honeycomb Asset Management. Honeycomb, launched last year by David Fiszel, has more than $500 million under management and owns a private stake in Spotify.
"We believe streaming music will continue to grow at rates that far exceed investor expectations, with its market size quadrupling from $10 billion to $40 billion over the next eight years," the hedge fund said in a fourth-quarter letter to investors seen ...

Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Google spent nearly $50 million — a record — to influence the U.S. government in 2017 – Recode – All
Immigration, net neutrality, taxes and Russia dominated tech’s agenda in the nation’s capital last year, per new reports. Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Google cumulatively racked up a roughly $50 million tab fighting off President Donald Trump and an onslaught of new federal regulations last year — a reflection that the tech industry is increasingly under political siege in the nation’s capital.
Over the course of 2017, the biggest brands in tech warred with the White House over immigration, tried and failed to save net neutrality and weathered a congressional investigation into the ways in which Russian trolls spread propaganda on their sites during the last election.
The heightened scrutiny and withering criticism — targeting tech on everything from sex trafficking to fake news — prompted many companies to spend more money than ever to lobby the government, according to official ethics forms filed at midnight. And yet the industry’s political ...
