Google ordered to clear your history in CNET UK Podcast 389

Google has been told by European lawmakers to erase links to stuff you don't want anyone to see. A triumph for the individual or an assault on free speech?


Don't like what people are saying about you on the Internet? Then get Google to delete it! The top European court ruled this week that the Big G is responsible for the stuff it links to, and you can ask for inaccurate information about you to be removed from Google's search results. Is the "right to be forgotten" a triumph for the privacy of the individual or a despicable assault on free speech?

Plus we mull over the multibillion merger of Dixons and Carphone Warehouse to form Dixons Carphone. Speaking of terrible names, we also meet the new HTC One Mini 2.

And we find out why Microsoft has disconnected Kinect from the Xbox One console, before taking you on a journey with Google Maps -- along the way finding out why a Scottish shop has banned cash in favour of Bitcoins. Hit play on the video and enjoy!
