The White House announced plans to create a consumer Privacy Bill of Rights that will place restrictions on how Internet companies can use your data. The administration is calling for understandable privacy policies, data protection and reasonable limits on data collection. In other news, the popular blog platform Tumblr announced that it would begin banning blogs that glorify eating disorders and self-mutilation. Tumblr has become a popular place for teens to partake in these types of communities and the company hopes its new policy will encourage them to seek help instead. And finally, do you know how your mobile device affects the environment? AT&T hopes to answer that question by adopting an eco-rating system that measures the energy efficiency, materials used and recyclability of devices it sells. You can look out for eco-ratings on AT&T products later this year.
