Evening news headlines

Greetings from the desk of Jonathan Hardison! I hope you're having a nice evening. Here are some of the stories we're working on tonight:

Eyes on your email

Do you know who's tracking your emails? Come to think of it, let me assure you I haven't signed you up for any secret notifications when you choose to read (or discard) my nightly email, but that's not true of an increasing amount of stuff in our inboxes that has tracking attached to it. Tonight at 9, we're looking at how one job seeker is using it "in a non-creepy way," and how other companies may be using small attachments to learn a lot about you through your inbox.

All that glitters

Also tonight if you're asking for diamonds for Valentine's Day or guys, if you're planning to pick up some some gems for your gem, make sure you're not getting swindled in the process. Ronda Robinson has some easy things to look out for when you head to the jeweler in the next couple of weeks.

Tune in starting at 9 p.m. for these stories and more! Watch us on air, online at MyFoxAl.com or through the WBRC News app.
