This week, Andrew Sorcini, Devindra Hardawar, Dwayne De Freitas, and Christopher Burnor take a look at other companies that are storing your data without your permission, following last weekâ€™s coverage of the Path debacle, and later we examine former TechCrunch reporter turned Crunchfund partner MG Siegler‘s claim that tech journalists today are foregoing putting research and expertise into their work in favor of using sensationalism to chase page views. But first, the headlines…
Google develops a home entertainment system, two Kickstarter projects hit the $1 million mark, SNL pokes fun at Verizon marketing, Steve Jobs earns a posthumous Grammy, Twitter beats MSM on news of Whitney Houston‘s death, The Pirate Bay says goodbye to .torrent files, Apple readies the iPad3 (and tests an 8-in. tablet), and Apple invites inspections of its suppliers.
