Microsoft just got slapped with a $20m fine for spying on kids.

Here’s what you need to know: (Thread)

#Microsoft #Xbox #Privacy 1/6
Microsoft violated the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act by collecting data on children who had started Xbox accounts without parental consent. They also shared the data with third parties. #COPPA #FTC 2/6
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) reached a settlement with Microsoft on Monday, which also includes increased protections for child gamers. Microsoft admitted that it did not meet customer expectations and said it was committed to improving its safety measures. #Safety 3/6
But this is not the first time Microsoft has been accused of privacy violations. In 2018, they were sued for allegedly collecting data from Windows 10 users without their consent. In 2019, they were fined $25m by the EU for failing to comply with GDPR rules. #Windows10 #GDPR 4/6
Last week, Amazon agreed to pay $25m after the FTC found that it had retained voice recordings of children for years. Amazon’s doorbell camera unit Ring also paid out $5.8m after giving employees unrestricted access to customers’ data. #Amazon #Ring #Echo 5/6

HOLD UP: Apple just dropped Apple Vision Pro.

It’s a whole AR computer in your headset.

Say goodbye to reality as you know it.

#WWDC23 #AppleVisionPro #AR
This is the “first Apple product you look through, not at.”

You can interact with the 3D interface using your eyes, hands, and voice.

The home view is like a hologram in front of you.
How to control it:

- Forget about controllers- you only need your eyes, hands, and voice.

- Gesture, gaze, and gab with your hands, eyes, and Siri to make things happen.
