  • It was a really bad month for the internet (Zack Whittaker)
    If these past few weeks felt like the sky was falling, you weren’t alone. In the past month there were several major internet outages affecting millions of users across the world. Sites buckled, services broke, images wouldn’t load, direct messages ground to a halt and calendars and email were unavailable for hours at a time.

  • Privacy-first browsers look to take the shine off Google’s Chrome (David Ingram)
    Before Google, Facebook and Amazon, tech dominance was known by a single name: Microsoft. And no product was more dominant than Microsoft’s web browser, Internet Explorer.

    When the "Sign in with Apple" functionality to appear as part of iOS 13 was announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) back on June 3, it was met with broad approval from Apple users.

  • TikTok’s mounting privacy issues are unlikely to hurt its ad business (Kerry Flynn)
    TikTok is being heavily scrutinized by regulators and activists. But it seems, just like the case with other ad platforms, advertisers are focused more on TikTok’s growing young user base. TikTok has faced a myriad of brand safety issues. One concern comes from its younger user base.

  • FTC to Ask About Disabling YouTube Ads for Kids’ Privacy (Ben Brody)
    The chairman of the Federal Trade Commission asked children’s privacy advocates whether having video creators on YouTube disable ads could resolve concerns the site is violating laws to protect kids, according to a person familiar with the conversation.
