Weekly Update 134

That's the second update in a row I've done on time! It's also another one with a bunch of other things in common with last week, namely commentary on yet more data breaches.

But it's the right thing to do and I'm going to keep at it, even if it means loading data without the organisations involved responding (it certainly won't be the first time). I also go on a bit of a rant about devices and services targeted at monitoring kids and as I say in the video, you'll see precisely why this is such a big issue for me probably next week or the week after. Stay tuned for that one and for now, here's this week's vid:
