Tom teaches us everything you ever wanted to know about cookies. The good, the bad, and what you can do about them.
While this topic has been covered, we have not covered it yet. We take our thirty minutes this week to talk about the EU law requiring search engines to remove search results in the “Right to Be Forgotten.”
Did you ever look at your Google Account Dashboard? If you haven’t, you should. It gives you a wealth of knowledge of what you have done in the last month. The scary thing is, all the stuff, is in the hands of Google. We discuss whether this is a good thing or bad thing. We finish up of how to do a app audit on your own, and how to cancel apps that you don’t use.

In what turned out to be a really dry topic, we did our best to discuss what should be done about privacy.
