Apple's Sept. 12 unveiling of the iPhone X brought with it the official reveal of Face ID: face-scanning tech that will be used in lieu of Touch ID to both unlock smartphones and authenticate Apple Pay. But privacy experts, security consultants, and at least one sitting U.S. senator are concerned that the technology is ripe for abuse. So just how worried should you be? Browsing the web is an integral part of most people's lives, but that process is frequently a jarring one complete with loud autoplay ads and video making it difficult to focus on what's in front of you. Google, however, has decided to do something about that. Starting in early 2018 will block autoplay video with sound on its popular Chrome browser. But what does this mean for the internet ecosystem as a whole? Google is an advertising company, so why would it take a stand against any type of ad? Could Edge, Safari, and Firefox soon follow suit, and how will this move affect surfing the information superhighway (yup) on our smartphones? Could we soon be heralding the end of noisy autoplay video?
