Google Now Allows Face Tagging

The Article

Google Allows Face Tagging
This week in the privacy news, yet another proposed privacy bill rears its head in the #senate. Is this one any good? Will it have a chance? Also, #Facebook dumps the VPN spy and instead gives money to install a survey app, but now #Google may be getting into the facial collection like Facebook did by allowing people to tag friends in their photos!

Police Using Boston Dynamics Dogs
This week in the Business News, a for-profit company aquires the .org domain regulator, #Uber lost it’s London operation licence, and #Twitter looks to deactivate old accounts. We also see a new #Alexa skill that may be trying to manipulate us with emotions, but this is nothing next to Boston Dynamics dogs being used by the police!
