Data Privacy That Isn’t
This week in Privacy News, we see an update to the Audacity tracking, Google doing some creepy things, and the military will be monitoring soldier’s social media accounts. Finally, we look at the new data protection bill that doesn’t protect anything. We also look at some security updates.

Two Additions to the MS Graveyard
This week in Business News, we see Amazon trying to make workers healthier, Cloudflare takes a stab at killing Captchas, and Twitter offers a subscription package. Also, Freenode is compromised and Microsoft sets up two new tombstones in the big tech graveyard. We also see a single SillyVille Article.
