    Baidu Also Wants To Own China's Offline Reading World



    If China's top Internet search engine controls Chinese literature the way it delivers Internet search results, be prepared for Baidu.com to censor, misrepresent, and deliver books to Chinese readers in a way only a book-burner could love.

    Baidu is now extending its government-influenced Internet monopoly into the Chinese literature sector. Baidu Literature announced its establishment and revealed a complete structure covering several sub-brands like Zongheng.com, 91 Panda Book, and Baidu Shucheng.

    At the same time, according to a report from TechWeb.com.cn, Baidu Literature will gain support from Baidu's various internal resources, including Baidu Tieba, Baidu game, Baidu music, Baidu video, and 91 Wireless. Baidu Literature also signed agreements with several partners in the gaming, movie and TV sectors.

    Baidu Literature's representative told local media that Zongheng.com will be the core of its original literature platform, which has over 10,000 contracted authors, more than 400,000 registered authors, and 160,000 works. Zongheng.com was previously an Internet literature website under Perfect World — a Chinese Internet game company — and Baidu acquired its entire stake for CNY191.5 million at the end of 2013.

    For its distribution platform, Baidu Literature said they have the Baidu Shucheng app and website and Panda Book platform, which can ensure the stable output of original resources to obedient Chinese readers.

    For third-party cooperation, the company will also promote resource exchanges with its peers. Baidu Literature said at present they have teamed with hundreds of distribution platforms for copyright content cooperation covering nearly 100,000 copyright works.

    Financial terms and organizational details of Baidu Literature were not released.

    Qualcomm Will Offload Its Mirasol Panel Plant In Taiwan



    American semiconductor company Qualcomm recently confirmed that they will sell their Mirasol panel plant in Longtan, Taiwan, to Taiwanese local foundry TSMC.

    Mirasol panel manufacturing was a business under Qualcomm MEMS Technologies, a subsidiary of Qualcomm, and it was once considered a breakthrough LCD panel product. However, the related business expansion was not smooth. Early in 2012, the Mirasol panel plant reportedly halted production.

    Jointly founded by Qualcomm and Taiwan Foxlink Group, the Mirasol display plant was put into operation in 2009. After TSMC's acquisition, it will be used for a chip packaging business.

    Mirasol is a new display technology developed by Qualcomm MEMS Technologies. Like traditional E-ink technology, it uses ambient light reflection to display content instead of using backlight. With the eyesight protection feature like E-ink, Mirasol technology also incorporates a high refresh rate and it can be used to play videos, which allows usage as mobile phones and tablet screens. With low power consumption, the Mirasol technology may bring revolutionary influences if it can be widely applied.

    Travelers Beware: Hacker Exposes Chinese Airline Security Hole



    The next time travelers board an airline in China, they may expect more than just the Chinese government and airline companies to have access to private information as a recently discovered exploit may give flyers more indigestion than an inflight meal.

    Wooyun.org, a Chinese loophole reporting platform for security manufacturers and researchers, published a loophole in the system of China Eastern Airlines which may cause leaks of customer data to hackers and thieves. According to the platform's information desk, the hazard rating was high for this exploit.

    The loophole was raised by a Wooyun white hat hacker named "Lu Ren Jia" on December 2, 2014, but the loophole has reportedly not yet been patched and is still waiting for action from appropriate manufacturers of the hardware and software components that are related to the exploit. No word yet either has been released by the airline.

    An insider from the airline industry pointed out in an article on 21cn.com that a loophole like this can cause the leak of user information, including names, mobile phone numbers, and airline flight information.

    Wooyun platform already exposed a SQL injection loophole in the system of China Eastern Airlines in August this year. The loophole was later confirmed by security manufacturers and patched.
