The parallel between the all-knowing "Big Brother" of George Orwell's "1984" and the ability of major corporations to monitor and manipulate our almost every move is becoming more and more real by the day. No, I am not some Luddite advocating an abandonment of the wonderful advancements of technology we enjoy (like the computer I am typing on right now). I am, however, very concerned about the rapid constriction of liberty in our country, due in part to an almost monopolistic control by the "Big Five" high tech corporations (Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft). Even Hollywood sees a problem here, and recently produced "The Circle" (starring Tom Hanks and Emma Watson) that addresses the very real march of Big Tech erasing our privacy and taking over our lives: ...

Telling a company you want out doesn’t necessarily mean it stops collecting, or even sharing, your data. Posted on December 19, 2018, at 8:52 p.m. ET Damien Meyer / AFP / Getty Images “Opting out” of something means you no longer wish to participate or contribute. But when it comes to your digital privacy and security, explicitly “opting out” doesn’t necessarily mean a tech company stops collecting, or even sharing, your data.After a number of revelations this

Currently, 47 states allow some form of CBD sales. The 2018 Farm Bill, which Congress passed this week, allows states to decide if CBD products made from hemp can be sold in their jurisdiction. However, it doesn't protect the products from the Food and Drug Administration, which can penalize companies for making inaccurate health claims. "We avoid talking about anything too specific about what the product will do," said Cary Smith, senior vice president at agency North 6th Agency. "If you come from an educational standpoint, you skew towards less restrictions, and have a bit of a larger organic reach." With so much uncertainty in the market, Google a...

In May I made the decision to excise the so-called “Big Five” tech companies from my life for a month. That meant no services offered by Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, Apple, or any of their subsidiaries. There were a number of reasons I wanted to undertake this experiment, ranging from reclaiming my privacy to learning more about how the technology I use every day actually works. The main reason, however, was simply to see if the Big Five services were actually necessary or merely convenient. I found that there were adequate open-source or independent replacements for pretty much every major Big Five service. In some cases, such as mapping software or social media platforms, the gulf between the Big Five and alternative services was so large that it made a noticeable, negative

Google and Facebook are expected to push back hard against proposals to set up a new authority that would monitor how they use their market power and the operation of algorithms that drive the placement of news and advertising content on their sites. Publicly, the two digital multinationals say they are studying the nearly 400-page report released by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission on Monday. “We develop innovative products to the benefit of consumers, businesses and the economy, and we work closely with advertisers and publishers across Australia. We will continue to engage with the ACCC between now and the final report next year, said Google in a statement. But behind the scenes there is consternation about the ACCC’s proposal to set up a new regulatory body which

The Facebook Inc. application on an Apple Inc. iPhone. Photographer: Andrew Harrer/Bloomberg© 2018 Bloomberg Finance LP Facebook just suffered the ugliest few weeks in its history, and I'm not talking about its shares plunging over 40% in the last four months. The company allegedly sold user data to businesses in secret deals, according to emails and internal documents released this week by U.K. lawmakers. Facebook has for years been collecting Android phone data — dates, times, call lengths, call recipients, phone numbers and text messages — even when people weren’t using its app, and it sold the personal data of over 87 million users to the political analysis firm Cambridge Analytica, even though only about 270,000 people signed up to use it. But the
