Google is a lot closer to a big win over those ‘right to be forgotten’ rules in Europe: An advisor to the EU’s highest court now says search engines should not be forced to apply the rules globally.

Amazon says a lot of people want Alexa in their cars: The company tells our sister site, Tech Crunch, more than a million people have pre-ordered the auto version of the Amazon Echo. It’s the size of a credit card and sits on your dashboard connecting to your car’s audio system through a cable or bluetooth.
