Microsoft wanted in on the act, too!

The Article

This week in the privacy news, I called it! Police have access to your Ring doorbell feeds…yep. Also, is it good or bad that Juul wants your federal ID to use their app to smoke some vape…umm…can a camera really take your blood pressure..and more…but finally, Microsoft was feeling left out and wanted to participate in the joys of the rest of the big tech companies. What did they do…?

In business news, a new proposed bill will be harder on monopolies…like Amazon who is trying to penalize businesses who sell cheaper to walmart…which we know uses monopolistic tactics to squeeze businesses prices too low. but fedex will not be renewing a contract. Finally, a crony deal was discovered between Yelp and Grubhub…can we just close down both companies now?
