How to set 'Do not track' in Chrome

Don't track me, bro

You can request for websites to not keep track of your activity when using Chrome

When you browse the Internet, the sites you visit pick up bits of information about you and your online habits. Some information, like websites you've visited, may be shared with third parties. Those third parties may use the information for advertising or gathering reporting statistics. You can request for that information to not be be tracked, and therefore not shared. However, as we discuss below, a website may or may not honor that request. Keep in mind that we're not trying to spread Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt; we're just trying to let you know what your options are.

Chrome isn't the only browser that gives you the "Do not track" option. For example, Firefox has been doing it for a while, too.

We'll be talking about how to set "Do not track" when using Chrome on your Android device.

AC editors' apps of the week

See the apps that we're all using this week

Apps are what make these extremely powerful devices we all carry really sing. They offer up functionality and entertainment at our fingertips, and each week we like to point out the few that have stayed installed on our own devices. Some are new, some not-so-new, but in any case if we have them installed and in-use on a regular basis, they must be doing something right. Read through our picks this week and see if you can find a couple that appeal to you as well.

Best Buy offers $50 discount on LG G Watch ahead of G Watch R's release

38

In light of LG's pre-IFA announcement of the circular G Watch R, Best Buy is now offering a $50 sale on both the white and black editions of the original G Watch. With the savings, either model will cost customers $179, which could help spur sales of the square form factor Android Wear wristwatch as consumer interest seems to be skewing towards a more classical circular watch shape.

AC on the road: What's in Derek's gear bag in 2014

This is what's in Derek's bag

It's time to see what's in Derek's bag when there's a show to cover

So, I'm heading over to Germany for IFA next week with Alex and Richard, while Phil and Andrew are going to Vegas the following week for CTIA. It's going to be a busy show with a lot to cover, so I'll be bringing a lot of the gear to make sure we can cover everything as best as we can. It's a pretty full load-out, but I like to be prepared for whatever might happen.

So what's in Derek's bag? It's time to find out.

From the Editor's Desk: Strap in, folks

100

We've reached that point of the year at which I'm required once again to remind you of the following: Shit's gonna get crazy.

Let's recap the next couple of weeks: This week we've got the IFA conference in Berlin. I'm sitting it out this year, but Alex and Richard have it covered, with an able hand from the one and only Derek Kessler. They'll be on hand for Samsung's Unpacked event there in Germany, and Andrew and I will be at the New York event. Liveblogging and intravenous caffeine injections start at 9 a.m. EDT.

Then it's off to the airport for Andrew and myself, as we head to Chicago for Motorola's big throwdown on Thursday. New phones, new wearables, and probably a few other things. Then home for the weekend before heading off to Las Vegas for the CTIA Super Mobility Week conference. No rest for the wicked.

And this, again, is the point at which I remind you that the live event coverage is just the start of things to come. As I spelled out in this space some six months ago, the live news coverage is just a small part of what we do. We're going to crawl inside every nook and cranny of these devices. We're going to help everyone learn to use them, whether they're your first devices, or your 200th. Some of these tutorials will be far too elementary for many of you. And that's OK. You have my permission to skip them. And I strongly encourage us all to respect those who are just starting out and need the extra help. We're here for everyone. And we're here to help.

New Dungeons & Dragons game in the works for mobile

16

Dungeons & Dragons is a super-popular tabletop role-playing game. There have been numerous titles released in digital format for players to enjoy on their consoles and gaming rigs, but many have failed to replicate the magic of tabletop. That could change as Backflip Studios is looking to bring a new Dungeons & Dragons game to mobile platforms and it's set to introduce some neat features.
