The Police Have Your Data
Today on our Privacy News section, we have a few details on the NZBGeek data breach, FAA regulations for drones, and more data leaked in an iPhone study than intended.

We will watch Apple fail in another lawsuit as they kill Hackintosh, and watch GoDaddy take the prize as the slimiest company in tech. Finally, Telegram to get ads, Ticketmaster hacked their rival, and Windows 10 is ramping up cloud desktop computing. We also look at three smart tech stories.
