Amazon Opens Amazon Go Technology So Other Stores Can Get Rid Of ATMs

Surely you’ve heard of the Amazon Go. They are, in a nutshell, Amazon’s semi-automated supermarkets, in the sense that you don’t have to take a cart, put the products in, check out and pay.

The user enters the store, scans a code, takes what they need and leaves “without paying”, since the charge is made automatically in their Amazon account.

In the beginning, the Amazon Go was designed to get ready meals, snacks and drinks, a concept that evolved into Go Grocery, a supermarket with 5,000 products and a thousand square meters of surface.

Now Amazon goes one step further with Walk Out, a program through which other establishments can access Amazon Go technology to automate their stores.

It must be made clear that we are not talking about setting up a franchise. It is not that an entrepreneur can set up their own Amazon Go, but that a company can reach an agreement with Amazon to set up an automated store.

Amazon puts the technology (cameras, infrastructure …), but it is the store that manages it with its name, customer service and employees. Because yes, there must still be employees to inform people, verify age, solve doubts and replenish shelves.

Unlike what happens in the Amazon Go, users who access these stores will not need an Amazon account to buy. What they will have to do is put their credit card in a machine, take a product and leave. It has no more.

Amazon offers the technology to get you up and running, and phone and email support, but stores can operate with their selection of products and partners. Likewise, buyers’ customer service needs, including returns, will have to be managed by the retailer directly.

From Amazon, they claim that installing all the necessary technology may take “a few weeks from the moment we have access to the store.” The program is valid both for new stores, that is, those that are going to be built from scratch, or for stores that are already operational, in which case they will try to “minimize the impact on current operations”.

As for the data collection that Walks Out does, from Amazon, they affirm that “we only collect the necessary data to provide buyers with an exact receipt .” And is that customers can request a purchase receipt by entering their data in a machine when leaving the store. Amazon will subsequently send the receipt by mail.

“We only collect the data necessary to provide buyers with an exact receipt.”

Be that as it may, the website does not mention who exactly manages customer data and how it does it. Dilip Kumar, VP of physical establishments and technology at Amazon, tells Reuters that “Amazon saves the email address and links it to the credit card information, for the sole purpose of charging the customer.”

At the moment it has not been revealed in which territories this program will be available. Still, seeing that Amazon Go are only available in the United States, it is expected that the deployment will begin there.

The price to pay for using Amazon technology has not been disclosed, but those interested companies can already contact Amazon from the Just Walk Out program website.

Google Threatens to Stop Its Search Engine Service in Australia, Why

Google has just announced that it is threatening the Australian government to stop its search engine services or search engines.

This was done by Google because it did not agree with new laws that have been issued by the Australian government where Google must pay news publishers for content displayed on Google Search.

Apart from Google, other technology companies such as Facebook are also entering and must comply with the new regulations. Then Google was the first and said that it did not agree.

“If this rule becomes law, we will have no choice but to stop Google Search services in Australia,” said Vice President of Google Australia and New Zealand, Meg Silva quoted from The Verge.

It states that Google was forced to decide this because they had no other choice and they also didn’t want to spend a lot of money just to comply with regulations in one country.

“It will bring things that we cannot sustain for this business, the digital economy, and do not fit the way search engines work,” Google continued.

Actually, Google has announced a program to pay a number of news publishers in Australia, Germany, and Brazil, but the Australian government thinks that this is still not enough so they make this law.

WhatsApp is increasingly anxious to be left by the user, now advertises in newspapers

India, which is one of the largest WhatsApp user countries in the world, is busy deleting WhatsApp and switching to rival applications such as Signal and Telegram.

Indeed WhatsApp has finally postponed its new privacy policy, but it seems that this is not enough to stem user migration.

Most recently, WhatsApp has advertised in newspapers to convince its users that they care about user privacy.

WhatsApp spent a lot of money to advertise in 10 newspapers that speak English and Hindi.

“WhatsApp respects and protects your privacy. Respect for your privacy is embedded in our DNA” reads the WhatsApp ad.

WhatsApp has clarified that its data-sharing policy with Facebook does not affect the privacy of messages sent by users.

Encryption continues and WhatsApp until Facebook can’t read the messages sent. WhatsApp’s actions to advertise are actually quite reasonable.

Facebook has an estimated $5.7 billion investment in India so there is no way they will let it drift for nothing.

Such an investment is aimed at boosting digital transactions for MSMEs in India. WhatsApp has also received government permission to launch WhatsApp Pay.

Microsoft Increases Download Limits on OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint

Working from home ( work from home, WFH) continued to require workers to do their jobs remotely. Included in sending important documents. Not infrequently, what is sent is a video or large file.

Of course, large project files such as 4K and 8K videos, CAD files, and other large data often become obstacles to sharing in the cloud.

In response to this, Microsoft will increase the file upload limit from 100GB to 250GB. These upload limits will apply to OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint.

In addition, this upload limit is also available to personal OneDrive users. Reportedly, this feature will be available at the end of January 2021.

Microsoft in a written statement said to continue to strive to support workers around the world. He said he accepted all feedback given by customers.

“We always try to innovate and empower our users to be more productive,” wrote Microsoft employee Ankita, Saturday (16/1/2021).

Microsoft Increases Download Limits on OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint

He added that each file is divided into several parts and each part is encrypted with a unique key, to keep the file safe.

All files will be backed up in Azure storage to make it easier for users to upload and download anywhere.

Previously, Microsoft had increased the upload limit from 15GB to 100GB in July 2020.

Microsoft Teams Will Compete with Browsers

Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, said Microsoft Teams will be as important as internet browsers and operating systems. This means that Teams will be a service that is prioritized by their users.

This statement came after Nadella highlighted the growth of Teams over the last few years.

According to company data, there were a surge of inactive users from 13 million users in July 2019 to 115 million users in September 2020.

Quoting UCToday , Thursday (13/1/2021), he added that Teams has turned into a communication tool as well as an organizing layer because it acts as a hub for other Microsoft services.

This is what makes Teams a platform that is expected to compete with internet browsers and operating systems.
