Microsoft’s New Reality Game

The Article

Microsoft’s New Reality Game
This week in Privacy News, the Facial ID banning begins, more data breaches occur, Amazon allows Alexa to text, and Microsoft’s new productivity trackers create a game out of employee work dedication. In security news, a school district is blocked from using windows, a new camera attachment for the apple watch puts cameras in more places, and the military explores brain wave communication.

iPhone 12 Drops Calls
This week in business news, Apple has to include a charger in Brazil, Pai Resigns, and the supreme court finally looks at hacking laws. Also, Section 230 is back in the news, Google spied on employees, and iPhone 12 seems to drop calls a lot. In silly news, PS5 is still causing strange things to happen, the Internet Archive collects flash games, and Microsoft creates a mobile office in your car.
