Radar, a location data startup, says its “big bet” is on putting privacy first

Pick any app on your phone, and there’s a greater than average chance that it’s tracking your location right now. Sometimes they don’t even tell you.

And even if you’re app-less, your phone company knows where you are at any given time, and for the longest time sold that data to anyone who wanted it. Locat...

The very best deals you can expect from Walmart's competing Prime Day 2020 sale — including Google devices, Apple devices, and 4K smart TVs

Last year, during Amazon's Prime Day, Walmart launched a simultaneous competing mega-sale with discounts on tech, electronics, and more that ran for two days longer than Prime Day itself. This year, we expect once again to see deals on Google devices — like the rarely discounted Google Home Max smart speaker — which Amazon doesn't sell because they're in direct competition with Amazon's own line of Echo devices. We expect several competing Prime Day sales in 2020 as retailers attempt to out-di...
