EU To Ban Mass Surveillance

The Article

EU To Ban Mass Surveillance
This week in Privacy News, Firefox is now sharing your data with partners, Google abandons bank accounts, and Amazon is working on a smart refrigerator to restock your house automatically. Also, the EU plans to ban mass surveillance in public places. We finish up some several security news items and data breaches.

Dystopian Brain Implant
This week in the Business News, we look at the Facebook downage, the FCC robocall mitigation goes into effect, and Tinder and Lyft team up to provide a ride for a date. Also, Cloudflare is not responsible for copyright infringement and a new brain implant can help control depression…or more. We finish off in SillyVille for several weird news articles.
