Terror hits UK again

Police in Britain say they’ve arrested 12 people in connection with Saturday’s terrorist attack in London. They say the investigation is progressing rapidly. Attackers drove a van off the road on London Bridge late Saturday night and plowed into people on the sidewalk. They then left the vehicle and began stabbing people in the nearby Borough Market. Seven people were killed. Nearly 50 others were injured. Police say they shot three attackers dead. British Prime Minister Theresa May held an emergency security* meeting Sunday morning. She later said this is the third terror attack Britain has experienced in three months, and something has to change.

Apple’s ad blocking feature creates controversy

The ad Blocker feature that Apple introduced in their iOS9 has become a hot topic in the net industry. By adding this feature, advertisements such as banner ads are no longer displayed when a website is viewed in the browser. This feature is controversial because if it becomes widespread, companies who rely on such ad revenue would not be able to survive.
