I have an iPhone, can Google track my movement? #006



Google CEO Sundar Pichai testified before the House Judiciary Committee on December 11th and the committee convened about Google’s data collection and privacy and like CEO Mark Zuckerberg gave boilerplate answers to the congressman questions he did the same. What struck me odd was the numerous questions that Google has some type of liberal bias that was asked from the Congressmen over the span over 2 hours plus when the committee convened is about data collection? I don’t get it. .

Also, another question I like to know is that doesn’t Congressmen know that if you don’t want to provide your location on your smartphone, you can turn it off?

“Galaxy Fold” Really Samsung? #005



This week, Microsoft announces a foldable smartphone arriving in 2019, I don’t think Microsoft had a smartphone for the past few years so it’s quite a surprise and not to be outdone Sony is announcing a foldable smartphone; which begs the question that I have asked for the past couple of episodes why would these companies think that consumers would actually purchase one?

So would be 2019 be the year of the foldable smartphone or will it be 5G?

A video game that helps understand dementia #002



Well, I am back with a new episode and there is a lot of tech news this week, including an article I found fascinating it where it’s about a man’s grandmother who had dementia and created a game based on the disease. It’s pretty incredible on how tech not only impacts on our daily lives but also how to understand a disease such as dementia.
