Google to Stop Tracking of People?

The Article

Google to Stop Tracking of People?
This week in Privacy News, we see an update to Apple trackers, The Verge suggests people to store passwords on Google, and the FTC is called on to reign in people search websites. Also, Google says it will stop tracking people for individualized ads. We finish with a few security articles.

Pure Government Propaganda
This week in Business News, another state wants a bill to allow third-party payment apps, /e/os now ships to the US, and Verizon & T-Moble have stupid moments this week. Also, Best Buy lays off staff, everyone is suing Texas power companies, and the MN government was trying to out-right propagandize the citizens. We finish with a touch of SillyVille.
