Without the aid of specialised tools, everything you do online (and plenty of things you don't realised you're doing) is being tracked. Desktop browsers have the benefit of extensions and add-ons that block pages from tracking you, but mobile browsers tend to be a little less advanced.

Most kids' toys are designed to survive years of abuse during playtime. But the toys they make themselves? Like a dinosaur made from Play-Doh? The odds of it surviving longer than 10 minutes are slim, unless it gets preserved forever inside Hasbro's new app that turns even abstract Play-Doh creations into animated characters.
The iPhone 7 is the first version of the phone to use a stationary home button, so if it stop working, it can be a little scary. Thankfully, Apple built in a failsafe, so you can keep using your phone until you have time to go into the Apple Store and get it repaired or replaced.
The Melbourne Cup yesterday was a bit of a depraved mess — if you were out in the paddock, at least. Inside the Myer Marquee, things were a little more dignified. Sydney street photographer Giuseppe Santamaria travelled down to yesterday's Melbourne Cup to snap some photos using Portrait mode on the iPhone 7 Plus, and they're pretty special.
