Apple Tracking You In Your House

Also, Google hands out data based on your keyword searches, and Apple tracks you around your house. In Business news, Uber gets political, Space X wants to deliver products across the world, and Apple charges more for phones if you aren’t a Verizon or ATT customer. Also, the FCC takes on Section 230.
