AmazonOne: The Scariest Payment Technology Yet?
Today in the news we cover Privacy and Business sections. We look at Facebook unifying account payments, EU making more policy changes, and Amazon has some seriously creepy technology deploying to a store near you. We also find that new 3D printed houses are available, ISPs stole from the government, and the new Xbox requires special (and expensive) storage.

DOS Subsystem for Linux: Brilliant or Useless?
Today in the news, we look at Security, Smart Tech, and SillyVille News. We look at some back doors that snuck into the Play store again, more ransomware, and a series of strange new robots and smart devices. In sillyville, a hacker got to a smart coffee pot, the white house has a rabid raccoon, and someone created a DOS subsystem for Linux.
