  • Companies are now mining your voice to learn more about you for purposes both noble and nefarious
  • Facebook just won’t change even though the Cambridge Analytica scandal should have been a catalyst
  • Companies need to take social and political stands but it needs to be done strategically, according to new reports
  • Dan York’s Tech Report covers designing for teenagers, Apple’s March 25 event, Firefox for iPad, email as the future of social networks, and the final week of Google+
