The EU his Google with a massive $5 billion fine over Android and demands changes to how Google does business. Mark Zuckerberg sits down for an interview with Recode and explains his views on how Facebook should treat Holocaust deniers, Russian ads, and its users' privacy. Amazon has its biggest Prime Day ever, despite going to the dogs and crashing at the outset. Venmo's privacy settings... could be better. When being polite to Alexa matters, and when it doesn't.
