  • You can stop Google from tracking your computer by going to your Google Account page and turning off Web & App Activity and Location Services. 
  • Google tracks your activity and location on any device when you’re signed into Google. 
  • If you force Google to stop tracking you, you’ll lose Google’s ability to personalize its services based on your web behavior and location.

While it may be cliché to say that Google knows everything about you, there’s also a lot of truth to that statement. If Google’s various tracking services are enabled, it knows both where you are and what your online search activity has been.

This story is part of Elections 2020, CNET’s coverage of the run-up to voting in November.

With news that Joe Biden has won the race for US president, his running mate, Kamala Harris, made history. The vice president-elect will become the first woman ever elected to the position, as well as the first Black and first Asian American. One of the earliest to congratulate Harris was someone who knows VP duties well, at least on television: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who played Vice President (eventually President) Selina Meyer on HBO’s popular comedy Veep, which ended in 2019. 

“‘Madam Vice President’ is no longer a fictional character,” Louis-Dreyfus tweeted.

Louis-Dreyfus was far from alone in her congratulations. The historic election had plenty of people on social media — from politicians to entertainers to everyday voters

New UN Archives website stores over 1 million pages of UN history

Spring and summer are usually the busiest times in the Archives and Records Management Section’s (ARMS) public research facility, also known as a reading room.

ARMS, in the Department of Operational Support (DOS), supports researchers from all over the world who come to New York to pour over documents chronicling 75 years of UN history, including its many peacekeeping and political missions.

Like many other in-person public services, the global COVID-19 pandemic forced ARMS to close its reading room doors to researchers in March 2020. To ensure business continuity, ARMS embarked on a concerted effort to provide online services to UN staff as well as the worldwide research community.

New processes and workflows to publish digitized files were ramped up during the lockdown. From mid-March, when we began working from home, until today, ARMS has published over 1,000,000 pages of previously unavailable archival documents in our online catalogue.
