We're approaching a year since Edward Snowden became a household name. Last week, the White House released a report on online privacy that may influence future policy. But for months, tech companies and users have been making their own decisions about dealing with these issues. So for a Techsplainer this week let's talk about one of the ways tech companies are looking at the issue of government data requests. It's called a warrant canary. Plus, we take a look at how Pinterest is starting to use native advertising and selling it for a pretty penny. In part, because the regular content is already about shopping.
