Zoom’s CEO thinks Zoom sucks for building trust, leaked audio reveals

Enlarge (credit: Morsa Images | DigitalVision) Earlier this month, Zoom announced a surprising decision to require some of its employees to return to the office, where they were expected to work more effectively. Now, leaked audio from an internal Zoom meeting shared with Business Insider has revealed that Zoom CEO Eric Yuan called employees back to the office because he believes that “remote work didn’t allow people to build as much trust or be as innovative.” None of this seems to jibe with Zoom’s brand, which provides video-conferencing technology that the company promises enables “immersive in-office collaboration right from home.”

(credit: Psygnosis / Dominic Szablewski) There have been a lot of Wipeout games released since the 1995 original, including Wipeout HD and the Omega Collection, but only the original has the distinction of having its Windows port source code leaked by (since defunct) archive Forest of Illusion. Dominic Szablewski grabbed that code before it disappeared and set about creating a version that’s not just a port. He rewrote the game’s rendering, physics, sound, and generally

Big Tech isn’t ready for landmark EU rules that take effect tomorrow [Updated]

Enlarge (credit: the_burtons | Moment) Tomorrow, the world’s biggest tech companies will finally be confronted with a European Union law designed to change the Internet forever—requiring more transparency and accountability from companies operating large platforms like Meta, TikTok, X, Google, Apple, and Amazon than before. This landmark legislation, the Digital Services Act (DSA), could end up cornering platforms into making a difficult choice: either incur heavy fines or risk disrupting their core business models by making it easier than ever to opt out of recommendation systems. Repeat offenders could be banned from operating in the EU entirely. Today, as Reuters
