it's all fun and games until I have to start writing columns for Search Engine Land.

Ain't that the truth. I'd rather have NFFC's proverbial needle in my eye.

Google admits it tracked user location data even when the setting was turned off

By now, this is not breaking news but it's worth highlighting just how much Big G has shifted away from its early corporate mantra.

More travelers say TripAdvisor blocked warnings of rapes and injuries at hotels around the world

Having run a tourism network, what to do about bad news (hurricanes, for example) was an issue.

>breaking news
>surf reports

I've seen some twitter use by colleges and shopping malls to quickly fire off an emergency alert such as a bomb threat or shooter on premises.  From that point, the news is pretty quickly converted to more populated media.  It seems to work for that.

None of the young people I know use twitter at all, with the exception of some dotards here.

If you're going to forego G maps or Waze for a 'traditional' gps you might look at Sygic. I have the pro version and quite like it (particularly the lane guidance inset feature). Though I mostly use G maps as it provides a lazy way to bookmark & access destinations on the phone's home screen, I keep Sygic because it doesn't require a data connection.

= Zheijang Geely Holding Group, a chinese company. Probably risking Uber's money-burning in hopes to make inroads in marketshare.

> Google got their sh## together with mapping

I'd say it kicked into high gear when they got crowdsourcing with Waze.  Waze 'royal' users (to use CaboWabo's terminology) can go in and directly edit maps and their editing is validated pretty quickly --stuff like moving off-ramps after DOT construction.

>They wont need it when we have driverless vehicles.

Yes, to catch those driving without insurance.  It's a big problem here. IIRC, it's said 35% of vehicles in my state are uninsured.  I expect the reason these cams are targeting the uninsured rather than, say, speeding, is because it is a cut-n-dried violation attributed to a specific vehicle in most jurisdictions.

The program, believed to be the first of its kind in the nation, involves setting up automated high-speed cameras on highways around the state to detect uninsured vehicles and mailing their owners a citation with a fine of $184

I have resetplug installed on the power for the cable modem and also the router.  It *may* be a contributor to the router's damn-I-have-forgotten-everything-I-knew-about-that-piece-of-gear status.

Mine has been so problem-free that it's reached the much-coveted status of damn-I-have-forgotten-everything-I-knew-about-that-piece-of-gear.

I was supposed to update it's firmware due to vulnerability but keep putting it off.
