AZERBAIJANI COURT UPHOLDS BLOCKING OF INDEPENDENT NEWS WEBSITES

On 19 December, the Baku Court of Appeal upheld a ruling to block access to a number of independent news websites in Azerbaijan. The failed appeal had been brought by Radio Liberty’s Azerbaijani service, Azadlig (“Liberty”), and the unrelated Azadlig newspaper.

In May 2017, five independent news sites were blocked in Azerbaijan after the Azerbaijani Ministry of Communications brought a lawsuit against them. The websites affected are Radio Liberty’s azadliq.org, Azadlig newspaper’s azadliq.info, the websites of Turan TV and the Azerbaijan Hour TV program, as well as Meydan TV.

Adil Ismayilov, representing Radio Liberty, filed a motion requesting that the court consider Radio Liberty’s case separately. “How are the writings of Meydan TV or Azadlig newspaper relevant to the organization I represent?” Ismayilov asked. “Should a bank put all its debtors together and bring a single case against them all?” The motion was rejected.

According to Freedom House’s 2017 report on internet freedom in Azerbaijan, “internet freedom declined in Azerbaijan in the past year after the government introduced new laws empowering authorities to block content in broad circumstances, while actors likely tied to the government targeted activists with malware attacks.” The report lists the country’s overall internet freedom status as “partly free,” while the press freedom status is “not free.”

Latest Philips Hue app update finally adds power-on behavior – Android Police

The Philips Hue is the largest and most well-known smart light ecosystem. If someone has connected light bulbs, there’s a good chance they’re Hue. However, those lights would always flip to full brightness when powered. Now, you’ve got options. The latest app update finally adds power-on behavior settings.

There are some other features in the new app, but nothing as important as the power-on behavior. Here’s the changelog.

  • Affected products (Hue Bulbs (E26/E27/E12/E14/BR30/GU10), Hue Lightstrips, Hue Lamps);
  • Reliability, behavioural and security improvements;
  • Smoothening of light transitions in entertainment mode;
  • Enabling power-on behavior feature.

After updating, you can head into the setting for any connected bulb to decide what it does when it comes online. Previously, lights would just turn on full blast. That was a problem if you had unreliable power, and a minor annoyance if the light was on a switch. Maybe you don’t want it to ever be on 100%. Now, you can choose between the original full brightness option and the last color and brightness mode. So, if the light was set to 0% before, it will stay off when it loses and regains power.

Losing your power doesn’t have to mean losing your mind — or your last light setting. Hue’s new Power-on behavior gives you control over what happens when your lights come back on after a power outage. #smartlighting #smarthome pic.twitter.com/CoDwbIXmlS

It would be nice to have a little more control, but this is still a huge step. The latest app update is live in the Play Store, and we’ve got it on APK Mirror.
