Which brings us to our last word in business: introvert's paradise.

The Internet is supposed to be about connecting with people, but sometimes you just want to be left alone. Well, there's an app for that. Meet Cloak.


Cloak pays attention to your friends' geolocations and lets you know if they're nearby. That way, you can avoid your enemies - like your exes or maybe even your friends, if you want to.

GREENE: I guess not.


GREENE: Renee, I always want to know when you'll be around.

MONTAGNE: Oh, David.

GREENE: That's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm David Greene.
