Google is ending support for the Explorer Edition of Glass

Google is rolling out one more update for the Explorer Edition of Glass before cutting off support for its old wearable. The tech giant introduced Project Glass back in 2012, opening it up for preorders for $1,500 each. Despite people raising privacy concerns about its ability to record videos, the company quickly released an upgraded version of the device. It soon decided to change its approach and target businesses, though, releasing an Enterprise Edition of the device in 2017. The company will continue supporting the enterprise version, suggesting that it’s…

Illegal robocallers could be punished under a new House bill

A bipartisan bill passed in the US House of Representatives on Wednesday would require phone carriers to offer free robocall blocking services to customers and give the Federal Communications Commission and the Department of Justice permission to punish illegal robocallers. The Pallone-Thune TRACED Act passed by a vote of 417-3, and will now move on to the Senate. Americans received nearly 50 billion robocalls last year — nearly 50% of which were from scammers, according to a February FCC report.

The single-worst Social Security claiming mistake you can make News 

The single-worst Social Security claiming mistake you can make

As of October, nearly 64 million people were bringing home a Social Security benefit check each month. Of these 64 million, more than four out of five are senior citizens, with approximately 62% counting on their monthly payout for at least half of their income. It would be pretty fair to suggest that deciding when to begin taking Social Security benefits is the most important decision that seniors will make. That’s because their claiming decision can have a big impact on what they’ll be paid each month by Social Security,…

It raises concerns that data gathered by TikTok could be used to identify, profile and track users in the US. The company is benefiting…

Social Security: The Smart Moves To Make In 2020

Social Security’s importance to the pocketbook of the average American retiree can’t be overstated. More than 60% of all retired workers lean on their Social Security payouts to account for at least half of their monthly income, and an estimated 15 million-plus use their benefits as a means of pulling themselves above the federal poverty level. Without this program, poverty rates among the elderly would be more than four times higher than they are today. Furthermore, it’s a program that’s expected to play a key role in helping future generations…

Could Social Security’s full retirement age rise again? News 

Could Social Security’s full retirement age rise again?

Social Security, a program instrumental in keeping millions of retired workers afloat, faces a funding shortfall that, if left unaddressed, could result in a major reduction in retirement benefits across the board. If that cut in benefits were to happen, a frightening number of seniors would be pushed dangerously close to the poverty line, if not below it, while future retirees would risk a similar fate. Lawmakers are heavily invested in salvaging Social Security and avoiding any sort of slashing of benefits. One potential solution to Social Security’s financial woes…
