New Delhi, Dec 31, 2016: The 22 year old pop sensation Justin Bieber was reportedly voted as the Worst Celebrity neighbour of 2016 by Zillow.

Bieber has been a regular member of Zillow’s annual list of most undesirable celebrity neighbor as previously, he topped the list back in 2014 too. However, this time around he earned the highest percentage of votes in the survey’s history itself!

One in three participants – or say 36 per cent of voters believe that Bieber would be the worst neighbor. He was particularly disliked among male voters as 39 per cent of them voted him negatively in the Boy Next Door category.

Many other celebrities also took surprising positions in the survey. Reality TV stars Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna came in second with 23 per cent of the vote. They were followed by Tom Cruise, Taylor Swift and Tom Brady.

When it comes to which celebrity do the voters want the most as their neighbour, former president of United States, Barack Obama tops the list with 14 percent votes.

Jeremy Wacksman, Zillow chief marketing officer said, ” Maybe it’s the additional neighborhood security or the possibility of running into other influential and famous people, but it’s clear people are intrigued by the idea of living next to the First Family.”

13 percent of the voters deemed Dwayne Johnson as the second most desirable celebrity neighbour. However, a crisp 28 percent said that they would not prefer any celebrity on the list as their neighbour.

Google comes up with a new feature

Google’s admission that it had in 2014 inadvertently coded the 112 distress number and the UIDAI helpline number into its setup wizard for Android devices triggered another controversy on Saturday as India’s telecom regulator had only recommended the use of 112 as an emergency number in April 2015.

After a large section of smartphone users in India saw a toll-free helpline number of UIDAI saved in their phone-books by default, Google issued a statement, saying its “internal review revealed that in 2014, the then UIDAI helpline number and the 112 distress helpline number were inadvertently coded into the SetUp wizard of the Android release given to OEMs for use in India and has remained there since”.

However, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recommended only in April 2015 that the number 112 be adopted as the single emergency number for the country.

According to Google, “since the numbers get listed on a user’s contact list, these get  transferred accordingly to the contacts on any new device”.

Google was yet to comment on the new development.

Meanwhile, French security expert that goes by the name of Elliot Alderson and has been at the core of the entire Aadhaar controversy, tweeted on Saturday: “I just found something interesting. I will probably do full disclosure tomorrow”.

“I’m digging into the code of the @Google SetupWizard app and I found that”.

“As far as I can see this object is not used in the current code, so there is no implications. This is just a poor coding practice in term of security,” he further tweeted.

On Friday, both the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) as well as the telecom operators washed their hand of the issue.

While the telecom industry denied any role in the strange incident, the UIDAI said that he strange incident, the UIDAI said that some vested interests were trying to create “unwarranted confusion” in the public and clarified that it had not asked any manufacturer or telecom service provider to provide any such facility.

Twitter was abuzz with the new development after a huge uproar due to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman R.S. Sharma’s open Aadhaar challenge to critics and hackers.

Ethical hackers exposed at least 14 personal details of the TRAI Chairman, including mobile numbers, home address, date of birth, PAN number and voter ID among others. (IANS)
