Users have started to notice that Amazon does not include the items you’ve ordered in its confirmation and shipment emails. One Daring Fireball, John Gruber owners whether it is a bid to stop others scraping the data.
Amazon no longer puts a list of items in order confirmation and shipment notice emails. Almost certainly they’re doing this to thwart email-scraping data harvesters from obtaining information about Amazon sales. All sorts of companies harvest this info, and people volunteer to let them do it (including Edison Mail, the iOS mail client whose recent egregious bug granted full access to email accounts to random other users — at least they’re up front about it in their “how we use data” statement). Edison is far from alone in this — there’s an entire cottage industry of email clients and “tools” whose entire business model is based on scraping their users’ email for e-commerce trends. So, from the Department of This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things, Amazon has responded by removing product information from its emails.

The attack vector involved was compromised usernames and passwords, which may suggest the use of credentials previously leaked or stolen, or the use of brute-force methods.
Amtrak says that some personal information was viewable, although the company has not specifically said what data may have been compromised. However, Amtrak was keen to emphasize that Social Security numbers, credit card information, and other financial data was not involved in the data leak.
Hong Kong's local residents are now able to use detailed real-time transit directions in Apple Maps, after years where that information was oddly only available outside the region.
If you didn’t think this timeline was weird enough, it’s about to get “cats and dogs living together” kind of weird.
Writing for AndroidCentral, Harish Jonnalagadda’s review of the iPhone SE says:
Come for the value, stay for the blistering performance and four years of software updates.
We live in strange times indeed. At least not all of it is strange and completely crappy.
Jonnalagadda is correct, of course: the second generation iPhone SE (just like its predecessor) is a terrific phone for the money. And good for Jonnalagadda and AndroidCentral for noticing that.

Central Park isn’t the first animated series on Apple TV+ (the service launched with a set of Snoopy in Space shorts), but it’s the first one made for adults as well as kids. It’s got all the ingredients for a hit show: it’s from the creators of long-running hit Bob’s Burgers, it’s got incredible voice talent including Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Stanley Tucci, and Tituss Burgess, and it’s about something basically everyone is familiar with, the most famous park in the world.
The first two episodes became available on May 29, and if they any any indication of what we can expect from the rest, I’ll only watch reluctantly. All the pieces are there, but the show as a whole is not the sum of its parts.
