This week in Business News, another state wants a bill to allow third-party payment apps, /e/os now ships to the US, and Verizon & T-Moble have stupid moments this week. Also, Best Buy lays off staff, everyone is suing Texas power companies, and the MN government was trying to out-right propagandize the citizens. We finish with a touch of SillyVille.

There have been a questions about Linux Mint and Data Collection, so I wanted to look everything over and see what reality seems to be. We will look at some Linux Mint blog posts and talk about how that relates to Microsoft and Pi. Linux Mint has always been firm on not wanting to collect data.
