Uber is tracking passengers even after their rides are over, and it isn’t going well

Uber is tracking passengers even after their rides are over, and it isn’t going well

If you updated your Uber app recently — specifically since the most recent update on November 24th — you may not even have noticed that the app’s location tracking permissions have changed. Now, rather than tracking your location only while you have the app open and active, it now tracks your location in the background as well. Needless to say, this change isn’t sitting well with users, but Uber has a totally logical explanation for the entire thing, it’s just up to you to decide if you believe the rub or not.

Amazon will give you a month of HBO for free

The deal of cable television is within sight…

Amazon announced last week that two new channels were coming to its cord cutter haven, Amazon Channels. This great product, which is available to Amazon Prime subscribers, allows users to subscribe to channels or to watch content from various TV networks without the need to subscribe to a conventional pay TV package from a cable company or satellite TV provider. The two new channels, as you might recall, are HBO and Cinemax. The former costs the standard $14.99 monthly fee while the latter is $9.99, but we have some great news: Amazon is offering a full 30 days of HBO for free. More →

Sprint Deals

Sprint is extending its most popular Black Friday unlimited data deal

Sprint is extending its most popular Black Friday unlimited data deal

As is becoming tradition, Sprint rolled out a bunch of “limited-time” offers on data plans for Black Friday. As it turns out, the only time limit is “as long as people want the deal.”

That surprise shouldn’t stop you from taking a good look at your Verizon bill and considering if it’s worth it, though.
