Amazing! I was just talking to someone the other day about realizing I hadn’t interacted with Consumer Reports since reading my grandparent’s copies of their magazines (and they had a kids’ version which I loved called Zillions) – so it’s fascinating to see that this is an “experiment incubated by the CR Digital Lab”!! Interesting direction from them and some of the headlines make it seem like they might actually be doing some useful tackling of problems…

yeah I haven’t kept up with it super closely, but CR has been involved in consumer digital privacy stuff for a few years now and everything I’ve seen from them has been pretty legit!
