App Parler sues Amazon for cutting internet service


The messaging app Parler has sued Amazon for cutting its web-hosting service, effectively shutting it down. The social media platform has come under fire for posts by far-right users that encourage violence, including conversations linked to last week's storming of the US Congress. Also in today's show - CES 2021 kicks off an all-digital event, and the price of bitcoin plunges amid warnings from regulators.

  • Social media app Parler goes dark as Amazon, Apple and Google pull support

    Parler, a largely unmoderated social network popular among America's far-right movement, went dark on Monday as Amazon Web Services revoked its hosting. The platform is believed to have played a pivotal role in inciting last week's storming of the US Capitol. Amazon's move follows similar decisions by Google and Apple to remove Parler from their app stores. Also, China hits back at the US over the de-listing of Chinese telecoms shares and the 2021 Consumer Electronics Show goes online amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • Amazon: QAnon? How About Q-No Way?

    QAnon believers say President Donald Trump is heroically fighting a 'deep state' run by a cabal of satanic pedophiles. The far-right conspiracy theory group also played a central role in the violent, deadly January 6 siege of the US Capitol building. And now, Amazon wants absolutely nothing to do with its members--or its merchandise. CNN reports Amazon is banning QAnon merchandise from its marketplace, and is in the process of removing QAnon products. The company said it may take a few days to rid itself entirely of QAnon T-shirts, flags, bumper stickers, and the like.

  • One Of The Worlds Biggest, Nastiest Dark Web Holes Just Got Shut Down

    European authorities say one of the internet’s largest forums for criminal activity has been seized and the man believed to be its operator has been arrested. Gizmodo reports DarkMarket boasted nearly half a million users and over 200,000 re-sellers. On it, they could digitally swap drugs, malware, stolen credit card data, and SIM cards, among other things. Law enforcement co-opted DarkMarket's infrastructure, confiscating over 20 servers in Ukraine and Moldova, where the operation was apparently located. However, officials have yet to reveal just who was arrested in connection with the darknet. They refer to the man only as a 34-year-old 'Australian national' who was apparently taken into custody by police somewhere near the German-Danish border.
