Imagine if you could order anything you want online and get it shipped to your house the next day? Google is working with retailers, the USPS and shipping companies to create a fast-delivery service to accomplish just that. The service would be incorporated with Google’s product search, with hopes to launch next year. In other news, WikiLeaks released a series of documents revealing how world governments use spying technology to track citizens and political dissidents. The files reveal products from over 160 companies that are used by intelligence agencies, police and militaries. And finally, the U.S. Senate is demanding answers from Carrier IQ, the company whose software tracks smartphone users’ every move. Senator Franken has asked the company to explain exactly what they record, who they give the information to and how consumers can stop its program from logging data.
