We Really Need Right To Repair
This week in Privacy News we look at Uber’s new audio recording feature, Tor censorship in Russia, and Clearview patent info. Also, Verizon is opting people into data collection after they already opted out and Google gives us a good reason why we need right to repair. We also look at the crazy of home tech…and the downsides. Also, we look at some security news.

Video Games at 80mph
This week in Business News, Windows 11 enables browser default, Doordash hires real employees, and 5G may cause problems for airplane landings. Also, Instagram connects kids with dealers and Tesla allows their video games to play while car is in motion (as I predicted). We also finish in SillyVille.
