Ninebot (scooter), Getty Images (subway) With New York opening back up a little, I wanted to go visit a friend in Brooklyn with my roommate.

Each phone had a SIM card, and all were running the Google Maps app. The result?

Elizabeth Warren Wants To Break Up Amazon, Google And Facebook; But Does Her Plan Make Any Sense? (techdirt)
