:00:32.:00:39.

Christmas party, priceless. There are some things in life you

:00:39.:00:44.

would rather forget. But when it is all up online, that can be harder

:00:44.:00:50.

than you think. This week, we look at plans to stop websites from

:00:50.:00:55.

keeping everything we have ever done. We report from Sweden as the

:00:55.:01:02.

country prepares for a new kind of tourist - a space to rest. We will

:01:02.:01:10.

also look at ways to keep you safe online in Webscape.

:01:10.:01:15.

Welcome to Click. When you sign up to a social networking site and you

:01:15.:01:20.

posed photographs and make friends, who owns that they turn - you all

:01:20.:01:28.

leaf, should you be able to take that material with you? Be raised

:01:28.:01:34.

the embarrassing bits and permanently to lead it? Or two

:01:34.:01:43.

websites like Facebook and Google Chrome that 80? The European

:01:43.:01:49.

Commission has launched a directive to put you back in charge of your

:01:49.:01:56.

data. ta. This video was put out by the

:01:56.:02:00.

European Commission to warn people to be less free and easy with the

:02:00.:02:08.

data a share online. While many of us surrender hour personal details

:02:08.:02:12.

willingly, the European Commission are

:02:12.:02:17.

aware of the bargain they are striking or adequately protected by

:02:17.:02:24.

protection directive aims to put people in charge of their data,

:02:24.:02:31.

reversing the assumption that the data online companies harvest is

:02:31.:02:36.

theirs. Of course it is not their day to have. The principal point is

:02:36.:02:42.

that you must admit as a company that you are renting data from an

:02:42.:02:46.

individual. Once this is accepted, you must be aware that can be taken

:02:46.:02:53.

away from you. Companies cannot go foraging for

:02:53.:02:58.

date that in the wild and pretend th they find is theirs. The

:02:58.:03:03.

idea at the heart of the new directive is that personal data is

:03:03.:03:09.

personal - it always belongs to you. Customers -- companies should not

:03:09.:03:13.

be able to leave you lost in the woods about your data. They should

:03:13.:03:19.

ask your permission if they want to process it or sell it on. In other

:03:19.:03:24.

words, they have got to talk to you - which is more than Google or

:03:24.:03:33.

Facebook it for us. They refused to talk to us. Facebook will be happy

:03:33.:03:37.

to tell you if there has been a serious breach or if your data has

:03:37.:03:41.

been compromised in any way because according to the directive, they

:03:41.:03:47.

have also got to do that. Companies can only hold on to the exact date

:03:47.:03:52.

they require to do what you want them to do. They cannot go on

:03:52.:03:56.

fishing exercises and keep hold of what they find West long as they

:03:56.:04:01.

want until they work out a way to make money out of it. You also have

:04:01.:04:06.

the right to delete your data. Companies cannot move at that date

:04:06.:04:16.
:04:16.:04:18.

it to another folder on their server. This Austrian student

:04:18.:04:23.

alleges that Facebook did just that. We found a not a day to that

:04:23.:04:28.

Facebook is generating in the background and also a lot of

:04:28.:04:35.

information that was previously "deleted". There were messages, all

:04:35.:04:40.

posts, books from years ago that were all still in these data

:04:40.:04:47.

suggest. There are even day to categories like friends removals.

:04:47.:04:52.

Facebook is not a meeting any of that and so far nothing has

:04:52.:04:58.

happened. -- not in deleting any of that. Facebook maintains that the

:04:58.:05:00.

way their service operates is in keeping with European data

:05:00.:05:05.

protection law. The important thing about this new directive is that

:05:05.:05:10.

there are actual penalties. In the past, it was only steer good

:05:10.:05:20.
:05:20.:05:22.

companies that stuck to the law because there were no penalties. If

:05:22.:05:28.

there is no penalty, no-one ever sticks to the law. That is the big

:05:29.:05:34.

exam teach -- advantage in the new Data Directive. The fines up to the

:05:34.:05:40.

new directive go up to one million euros for an individual or a 2% of

:05:40.:05:44.

turnover for an enterprise. For Google, that would mean several

:05:44.:05:50.

hundred million euros. That would really shake their business model.

:05:50.:05:54.

They have made it so much money out of consumer data without ever

:05:54.:05:59.

paying any individual for the data that they have used. Now they

:05:59.:06:04.

should be worried about their business model. This will rebalance

:06:04.:06:09.

the interest in society. Consumers should be able to control their

:06:09.:06:13.

data. All well and good for European consumers but what about

:06:13.:06:18.

the rest of the world? Will companies be able to exploit

:06:18.:06:28.
:06:28.:06:31.

international disparities in regulation? The critical thing is

:06:31.:06:35.

that any data from which an individual can be identified should

:06:35.:06:41.

be protected. What happens, as is the case with Google and Facebook,

:06:41.:06:45.

they say they are collecting information anonymously. But what

:06:45.:06:51.

happens when that data is then sold it to other organisations who put

:06:51.:06:54.

that information together with other information about you from

:06:54.:07:00.

other sources? Suddenly, you can become identifiable. One of the

:07:00.:07:03.

main differences from these new proposals is that it data is going

:07:03.:07:09.

to go outside the two, it must be subject to the same high levels of

:07:09.:07:14.

data protection as it is within EU member states. That will be

:07:14.:07:21.

reassuring to users of websites like Facebook and Google. That

:07:21.:07:31.
:07:31.:07:31.

means that cross-referencing data will be regarded as personal data.

:07:31.:07:38.

Europe has thrown down the gauntlet with this directive. It is yet to

:07:38.:07:41.

be seen how the right to be forgotten will sit with pre-

:07:41.:07:45.

existing rights like the right to free speech. Maybe we should be

:07:45.:07:50.

able to roll up the car that of our own personal histories behind us.

:07:50.:07:55.

But does that include something that someone else has written about

:07:55.:08:00.

us that we simply do not like? you have a website that has

:08:00.:08:05.

material talking about me that I would have the right to force you

:08:05.:08:12.

to take that day to down, we think that would be a violation of your

:08:12.:08:16.

right to free speech. Some of the more radical versions of the right

:08:16.:08:20.

to be forgotten would contemplate that. Other versions are more

:08:20.:08:25.

strictly limited to regulating large companies that collect

:08:25.:08:30.

personal data for mercenary purposes. And regulation of that

:08:30.:08:35.

kind of man I would not be a problem. Within Google Plus, Google

:08:35.:08:40.

intends to create what could be the largest database of personal

:08:40.:08:43.

information by allowing its different applications to cross-

:08:43.:08:48.

reference and share our data. Facebook has launched time lined -

:08:48.:08:54.

again without opt-out - this function uses more personal history

:08:54.:09:00.

data. Is this a trend - companies inventing uses for all our data to

:09:00.:09:06.

head off criticisms that they are using -- hanging on to all our

:09:06.:09:10.

data? The risk is that websites like Google and Facebook might

:09:10.:09:15.

reveal to users just how much they know about them, spruik then and

:09:15.:09:24.

lose them. Instead of losing personal data of their customers,

:09:24.:09:28.

these companies could end up losing their trust.

:09:28.:09:33.

Interesting times. Do you think these companies needed to be reined

:09:33.:09:43.
:09:43.:09:46.

in or is the bargain clear from the out set?

:09:46.:09:49.

Time for this week's Ten News. Twitter faces legal action in the

:09:49.:09:58.

Court of Brazil for allowing users to Tweet about police roadblocks

:09:58.:10:02.

and speed traps. If Twitter loses the case, they could end up being

:10:03.:10:10.

find themselves $100,000 per day. Google and Facebook say they have

:10:10.:10:13.

complied with the request of a court in India and removed material

:10:13.:10:19.

considered offensive from their website. The companies along with

:10:20.:10:25.

Yahoo! and Microsoft were the owners of a number of websites

:10:25.:10:31.

accused of being intolerant to religious groups. Last week, India

:10:31.:10:36.

threatened to block the websites if they did not comply. Apple has

:10:36.:10:44.

picked Samsung to take the global smartphone crown. They are the

:10:44.:10:49.

number one phone manufacturer only four years after entering the

:10:49.:10:54.

market. Both BlackBerry maker r a m and Nokia saw best lines in

:10:54.:11:02.

:11:40.:11:45.

the next giant leap from space travel as the sole preserve of

:11:45.:11:50.

scientists and the military, to space travel for all. Space travel,

:11:50.:12:00.
:12:00.:12:02.

just for fun. A new world conquered, the human imagination captured.

:12:02.:12:09.

Space travel seemed like every child's dream. One small step for

:12:09.:12:18.

man, one giant leap for mankind. Those children have grown up, it is

:12:18.:12:22.

more than 42 years since Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, the

:12:22.:12:28.

tracks are still visible today. But, so far, space travel has been

:12:28.:12:33.

limited to a few men and women, mostly professionals with the

:12:33.:12:40.

occasional tourist paying upwards of $20 million for the privilege.

-- shuttle. This aircraft will be used by Virgin Galactic to send

:13:03.:13:09.

ordinary men and women to the edge of the Earth's atmosphere. The

:13:10.:13:14.

first flights are due to take off from New Mexico in the US next year,

:13:14.:13:20.

three years later than originally planned. It is here inside the

:13:20.:13:24.

Arctic Circle in the Swedish town of Kiruna that the European Space

:13:24.:13:29.

hub for the venture could be based. This is the woman behind that

:13:29.:13:34.

vision. There are a few places in the world looking to establish this,

:13:34.:13:40.

none has come as far as we have. We want to build on our existing if

:13:41.:13:49.

the shutter and tourism business that we have. -- infrastructure. We

:13:49.:13:54.

are already offering space adventures. We have offered a

:13:55.:13:58.

unique product called Northern Light Flights, it gives you the

:13:58.:14:02.

opportunity to get closer and see the Northern Lights, but should

:14:02.:14:07.

there be a cloudy day, it gives you the opportunity to fly above the

:14:07.:14:12.

clouds to see the Northern Lights. This is the view many of us would

:14:12.:14:18.

want to see with our own eyes. Some will have the privilege sooner than

:14:18.:14:23.

others. After three days of training space to tourists will

:14:23.:14:27.

travel to the edge of the Earth's atmosphere. Propelled at more than

:14:27.:14:31.

three times the speed of sound, they will experience the zero

:14:32.:14:35.

gravity for a few minutes before heading back to earth. It will cost

:14:36.:14:45.

around $200,000. Forecasts say that in 2020 about 20,000 people a year

:14:45.:14:51.

will be flying into space. The cost has come down significantly.

:14:51.:14:57.

$200,000 to fly today, maybe in ten years' time it will be $50,000.

:14:57.:15:03.

That is comparable to other experiences or consumer products. I

:15:03.:15:07.

think space as an adventure is something that people dream about

:15:07.:15:14.

and have done for years. Only 500 people have been into space. It is

:15:14.:15:20.

because it is difficult. New developments are happening, more

:15:20.:15:27.

people will be able to fly into space. Virgin Galactic are

:15:27.:15:33.

developing a system were 500 people within the first year of operation.

:15:33.:15:40.

The first flights are planned to start in 2013, out of the USA. We

:15:40.:15:44.

will have operations a few years later. Space tourism is in its

:15:44.:15:49.

infancy. The imagination for those making it a reality are boldly

:15:49.:15:54.

going where no-one has ever been before. Space has always been a

:15:54.:16:01.

platform for development. People have been curious about space as an

:16:01.:16:05.

adventure but also to solve the problems we face on earth. New

:16:05.:16:09.

resources for example. I think we'll see a revolution of new

:16:09.:16:15.

products and services being developed. People who have gone

:16:15.:16:20.

into space have always been soldiers, they have a mission, but

:16:20.:16:24.

going forward we will have space hotels, music venues, Sport the

Back into Terra Firma, we are visiting a different kind of space,

:16:36.:16:42.

cyberspace. No-one can deny the power of social media. With great

:16:42.:16:48.

power comes, corruption. The spammer and scammers are out in

:16:48.:16:54.

force. We have our very own webby superhero. She does not wear a Kate

:16:54.:17:00.

or address in lycra, much to the disappointment of her supporters. -

:18:14.:18:19.

to find a decent recipe at Gojee.com. It lets you search by

:18:19.:18:24.

keyword based on the ingredients you want to use. Unlike a lot of

:18:24.:18:32.

the other large recipe collections, it has recipes only written by food

writers. You can be certain of quality. They claim to have 10,000

:18:37.:18:45.

recipes in the archive. That is double of AllRecipes.com. One of

:18:45.:18:49.

the things I love best about this website of the huge mouth-watering

:18:49.:18:54.

photographs that they used as a backdrop to the recipe. You cannot

:18:54.:18:59.

help but start salivating at the thought of tucking into those

:18:59.:19:04.

delicious, muffins and ice-cream Sunday's dripping with sauce. As

ITriage is a free Android app that acts as a tonic to this alarming

:19:48.:19:55.

experience by providing diagnostic tools and advice. When you first

:19:55.:20:01.

launched the app you'll have to search through a disclaimer. We all

:20:01.:20:06.

know that nobody reads disclaimers, let me summarise this one, it is

:20:06.:20:13.

kind of important. Using a Android app is no replacement for a doctor

if you are concerned about your health. It does a pretty good job

:20:18.:20:28.
