There's always something new in the world of technology, and it can be hard to keep up. Whether you're a savvy early adopter or just trying to catch up with the times, here's what you should know about the latest in tech.

Cloudflare Blocks Controversial Online Forum Kiwi Farms

Kiwi Farms, an online forum known for doxxing and harassment, has been blocked by Cloudflare.

Cloudflare is a major internet infrastructure company that provides services to millions of websites. The decision to block Kiwi Farms is a rare move for the company. The move comes after a campaign from activists and victims of the site. In a statement, Cloudflare said it was "imminent threats to human life."

Kiwi Farms has been a controversial forum site for years. The site is known for doxxing, which is the practice of publishing someone's personal information online. The site has also been accused of harassment and cyberbullying. Their main target was trans women, but they have also harassed other groups, including people with disabilities.

Irish Regulators Fined Instagram €405 million over Children's Data Privacy

Irish regulators have fined Instagram €405 million for breaching EU data privacy rules. The social media company is accused of failing to protect the data of children under the age of 18.

The Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC) accused Instagram concerning children's data, including phone numbers and emails. This is DPC's third fine to the parent company Meta Inc. As per Meta Officials, the inquiry was based on an old setting of Instagram, which was changed over a year ago. Instagram has said that it will appeal the decision.

iPhone 14 Series and Other Apple Devices will be Launched on September 7

Tech giant Apple is having an event on September 7, where it is expected to launch the iPhone 14 series, new AirPod models, and other devices.

The iPhone 14 series is predicted to include four new models with support for 5G. Other rumored features include a new design, improved cameras, and upgraded processors.

At the Far Out event, Apple is also expected to include the launch of the new AirPods Pro 2 and its long-awaited Apple Watch Series 8. This is one of the most hyped events of the year for Apple fans.

New Export Rules Restrict US Chip Maker from Selling to China

Top chip makers in the USA, including AMD and Nvidia, have been limited from selling to China by new US export rules. The new rules are designed to keep advanced technology out of the hands of China's military.

The new rules come as tensions between the US and China continue to rise. As per this rule, chip makers will require a new license to sell to Chinese and Russian entities. The US government is concerned that China could use US technology to build up its military intelligence products.

The new rules are likely to have a significant impact on the global chip market. China is a major customer of US chip makers, and the new rules could hurt their business. Nvidia's shares have already fallen by 6.6% and 3.7% of AMDs on the news.
