Facebook, Oculus Accounts Gets Worse
This week in Privacy News, are your chat link previews a privacy violation? Also, iPhone turns off COVID notifications, a surveillance company spies on women, and Facebook doubles on Oculus accounts. Also in Smart News, Fitbit crosses 500,000 users, we may get self-driving semis, and a new speaker also charges your phone.

Microsoft to Preload Edge
This week in Business News, EU Smartphones can’t be carrier-locked, PayPal cancels more people, and GrubHub gets sued! Also Microsoft is looking to preload Edge on boot. Finally in SillyVille, Get your practice in on voting with a Minecraft Server (Will M$ Know Your Vote???) And our final silly story is too hilarious to mention it here.
