Is Your Car Snitching to the Government?
This week in Privacy News, the Maine facial recognition ban passes, Google delays FLoC, and the government requires all automated cars report crash and near crash data to them. That will not end badly. We also look at some security news.

TV-style Commercials in Video Games?
This week in Business News, ATT talks out of two sides of its mouth while the GOP backs off of banning muni-broadband. Also, the carriers are now removing spoofing from their networks and Amazon doesn’t like the new FTC chair. Finally, EA and other video game companies are looking to put TV commercials in video games. We conclude with SillyVille.
