Ars Technica - 12 min 39 sec ago

Oakland is just one of many cities across America that is trying to sort out how it will manage the rapid influx of shared electric scooters on its streets. A new permitting process is being discussed at forums held across the city, with a vote expected within months.

After all, tech startups have sprung up with essentially the same business model: via a smartphone app, unlock a scooter for $1, then pay $0.15 per minute afterward.

Dealmaster: Take $100 off Microsoft’s Xbox One X console

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is a busy one, but we'll highlight a deal on the Xbox One X, which is down to $400 at Walmart.

Microsoft's beefed-up console has been down at that price for most of the holiday season, but it remains a solid discount of $100 nonetheless. While you'll need a 4K and HDR-capable TV to truly take advantage of the device—and while the PS4 still has a larger community—the One X is still a performance improvement over the Xbox One S for those who have already boarded the Xbox bandwagon. Just make sure you plan to play games that actually support its added horsepower, since the cheaper One S is already capable of playing 4K video.

If you're not an Xbox fan, though, we also have deals on Razer's DeathAdder Elite gaming mouse, Nintendo Switch games, the Apple Watch Series 3, a bunch of Amazon devices, and much more. Have a look for yourself below.

A new report by the Department of Homeland Security’s internal watchdog has concluded that the agency does not always adequately delete data seized as part of a border search of electronic devices, among other concerns.

According to a new 24-page document released Tuesday by DHS’ Office of Inspector General, investigators found that some USB sticks, containing data copied from electronic devices searched at the border, "had not been deleted after the searches were completed."

Investigators checked an unspecified number of drives across five ports of entry around the country.

FCC panel wants to tax Internet-using businesses and give the money to ISPs

A Federal Communications Commission advisory committee has proposed a new tax on Netflix, Google, Facebook, and many other businesses that require Internet access to operate.

If adopted by states, the recommended tax would apply to subscription-based retail services that require Internet access, such as Netflix, and to advertising-supported services that use the Internet, such as Google and Facebook. The tax would also apply to any small- or medium-sized business that charges subscription fees for online services or uses online advertising. The tax would also apply to any provider of broadband access, such as cable or wireless operators.

The collected money would go into state rural broadband deployment funds that would help bring faster Internet access to sparsely populated areas. Similar universal service fees are already assessed on landline phone service and mobile phone service nationwide. Those phone fees contribute to federal programs such as the FCC's Connect America Fund, which pays AT&T and other carriers to deploy broadband in rural areas.
