Stuff I bookmarked recently. Some off topic, some not:
Facebook to Fight Belgian Ban on Tracking Users (and Even Non-Users)
Facebook Inc. is attacking a Belgian court order forcing it to stop tracking local users’ surfing habits, including those of millions who aren’t signed up to the social network. Belgium’s privacy watchdog argues Facebook “still violates the fundamental rights of millions of residents of Belgium.”

Airbnb Has a Hidden-Camera Problem
At about 8 or 9 p.m., he went out for dinner; by the time he got home, his hosts had gone to bed in the room adjacent to his, and he prepared to do the same.
That was when he saw the light. Two small, black, rectangular boxes were stacked next to an outlet on the far side of the guest room, both facing the bed. From afar, they looked like phone chargers. But when Vest got closer, he realized they were cameras, and they were recording.
If it was me there would have been an ass-whooping going down that night.
