Amazon to Harvest ALL Your Purchases
This week in Privacy News, Chrome doesn’t delete Google website history, and Waze data can leak real data identifying data. EU investigates Instagram again and people want to remove privacy around health data. Also, Amazon wants you to upload your receipts for non-Amazon purchases. Two articles in Security News show more maleware-filled ad blockers, and we have more smart news stories.

The Google Anti-Trust Case
This week in Business News, we have an update on Uber’s Prop 22 push. We also find Windows adding more apps to our computer…and then pausing, Tesla pulls back warranty program as their cars start falling apart. Also, we will look at some commentary on the Google antitrust case. In Silly News, a band was arrested for smuggling flying squirrels and a group of paleontologists can’t talk about bones. Also, a few tech companies had a few wild ideas, and the game companies followed suit.
