In December 2019, a report discovered that the iPhone 11 Pro continues tracking location and amassing consumer data even after users have disabled location services. In response, an Apple engineer mentioned the Location Services icon “seems for system services that wouldn’t have a swap in settings.” Ireland’s Data Protection Commission also launched a privateness investigation to examine whether or not Apple complied with the EU’s GDPR legislation following an investigation into how the company processes private knowledge with targeted ads on its platform.

The Capital Note: SPACs & Office Space

Welcome to the Capital Note, a newsletter (coming soon) about finance and economics. On the menu today: SPACs, Office Space, and Antique Bonds, plus some links from around the Web.

SPACs
Special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) are all the rage. 51 SPAC offerings have been completed in 2020 — a 145 percent increase from the same period in 2019. Electric-truck company Nikola and spaceflight company Virgin Galactic both went public this year via SPACs, and Bill Ackman — enjoying the limelight after a stunningly profitable short trade early in the COVID crisis — has launched his own “unicorn mating dance,” his term for the process of finding a large tech company to take public with $4 billion in newly raised funds.

Fong’s Pizza, a pizzeria based in Iowa, is now gaining attention for its most recent addition to the breakfast menu: a Froot Loops pizza.

The pizza, which is listed as “Loopy Fruits Pizza” on their menu, consists of a sweet cream cheese sauce base topped with mozzarella and, of course, a layer of Froot Loops along with a drizzle of Greek yogurt and condensed milk.

The pizza, which is now a permanent pie at the Forest Avenue location of Fong’s Pizza, has become a controversial topic on social media. Much like Villa Italian Kitchen’s pumpkin spice pizza in and Rhino’s Pizzeria and Deli’s dill pickle pizza, people are perplexed by the combination of pizza and the sugary breakfast cereal.

At this Colorado Springs restaurant, it doesn’t matter if you’ve never been to Malaysia | On the Table | Thetribune

Eyebrows raised, I looked skeptically as my bespectacled friend, the one with the penchant for suede elbow-patches and sweater vests. “Malaysian food?” I asked. Not confident I had heard the professor correctly. “Really? In the Springs?” I may have sounded somewhat flummoxed, but our fair city is not known for a broad range of international cuisine; and a local discovery of food from the Southeast Asian federal constitutional monarchy is unheard of.

I have not had the privilege of traveling to Malaysia. China? Yes. Thailand? Yes. Korea, Japan? Yes, yes. But having yet to even sample Malay food, I was feeling ever the uninitiated novice.

When a new cuisine is first approached, the default stance is to embrace the menu in its entirety. A flurried sampling of nearly everything on offer is the surest way to “get one’s arms around the matter,” as they say. Mercifully, Asian Cookery’s menu
