Verizon Fined Millions for COPPA Violations

The Article

We will also look at how AI is starting to get a grasp into our modern world with Skype starting to do closed captioning…and do you know what that means?  Also, Google is releasing its new phone screener so I need to use their app and send ALL MY CALLS TO GOOGLE FOR SCREENING!!!!
