Driver Monitoring for All

The Article

Driver Monitoring for All
This week in the Privacy News, Bose no longer requires an account to use their app, Apple AirDrop leaks personal data, and Google’s COVID app could leak data. Also, the government wants to put driver monitoring in every car on the road. We also look at some smart and security news.

The End of the Internet?
This week in Business News, Vivaldi blocks cookie popups, AlmaLinux now has commercial support, and Spotify is set to increase prices. Office looks to kill off Calibri, Apple sued over movie purchases, and Nestle issued a cease and desist over CA water bottling. Finally, EU issues new rules requiring certain content to be removed from the Internet in one hour. We also have some SillyVille articles.
