“Whoa. This is the Galaxy S20 Ultra?” I was so surprised, I said it aloud. Samsung’s Unpacked event was the first time I got my hands on Samsung’s biggest and baddest Galaxy S20 device. Due to unfortunate circumstances, I had to skip the typical journalist briefing session, so it wasn’t until I held the S20 Ultra earlier this week that I was able to form my first concrete opinion. Here’s the first, but least important of the bunch: The S20 Ultra is a massive, heavy phone with a hulking camera module that reminded me of The Rock. CNET Senior Editor Lynn La went even further, calling the array “chonky” and grotesque”.

When you download an app, the permissions requests and privacy policy are usually the only warnings you’ll get about the data it’s taking. Usually, you just have to take the app’s word that it’s grabbing only the data you’ve agreed to give it. Often, though, there’s more grabbing going on than you were led to believe, security researchers have determined. More than 1,000 apps have been found to take data even after you’ve denied them permissions. For instance, menstrual tracking apps have shared sensitive info with Facebook, as well as with other companies you might not have expected. Similarly, apps designed to block robocalls have shared your phone data with analytics firms.

Your personal information is precious, and our directory of the best identity theft protection and monitoring services can help you proactively monitor suspicious activity and protect your identity as well as assist in recovering if you’re a victim of a data breach that leads to identity fraud and theft. Unfortunately, you may need one of these protection services soon, if you don’t already. That’s because identity theft is a massive and growing problem, with more enormous data breaches hitting victims with increasing regularity. In 2016 alone, there were more than 15 million US identity fraud cases, with identity theft victims losing more than $16 billion not to mention untold damage to credit reports. The 2017 Equifax breach was the icing on a very bad cake — one that got even worse in the months that followed. More recently, the Starwood Marriott breach compromised the personal information of more than 380 million guests, including more than 5 million passport numbers.

Emma gets one thing straight right away: If you can relate to its heroine, you’re living a better life than most. Director Autumn de Wilde lays out her cards by emblazoning the opening lines of Jane Austen’s 1815 novel across the screen. Emma Woodhouse is “handsome, clever and rich.” Deal with it. If you find it strange to be invited to sympathize with a manipulative heiress in 19th-century rural England, you’re not alone. Austen herself described her title character as “a heroine whom no one but myself will much like.” Emma lives in a big fancy house, and her main occupation is messing around with other people’s love lives. She has the kind of problems most people would kill for, and she’s often unsympathetic. But you might just like her despite all that.
