Google Adds ‘Kodi’ to Autocomplete Piracy Filter

Google has banned the term “Kodi” from the autocomplete feature of its search engine. This means that the popular software and related suggestions won’t appear unless users type out the full term. Google has previously taken similar measures against “pirate” related terms and confirms that Kodi is targeted because it’s “closely associated with copyright infringement.” – Ernesto, TorrentFreak https://ift.tt/2pM26Y6

YouTube Will Now Redirect Searches For Extremist Videos To Anti-Terrorist Playlists

The new feature, dubbed The Redirect Method, is part of a four-prong strategy announced by Google last month to quash extremist ideologies across its platforms. The Redirect Method was developed by Jigsaw — an Alphabet subsidiary whose mission is to counter extremism, censorship, and cyber attacks — alongside another tech company called Moonshot CVE (which stands for ‘Countering Violent Extremism’). – Geoff Weiss, Tubefilter http://ift.tt/2vGfXzz

Cutting the Cord: Weighing whether it is words or reality

Only about 5% of U.S. homes with broadband Net service have cut the pay TV cord, says Parks Associates Research analyst Glenn Hower. “We are not projecting really any increase in that,” he says.
That’s confirmed by a recent eMarketer analysis of recent cord-cutting research that deemed it “more myth than reality,” with perhaps 1 million U.S. cord cutters expected in 2014. Rather, consumers are more likely to switch from cable to telco and satellite services and chip away at their overall pay TV bill, the research firm’s report projects. – Mike Snider,USA TODAY
