Users have reported battery life issues with the latest Android build, with many pointing the finger at Google Play – Google's app store – and its persistent, almost obsessive need to check where you are.

Amid complaints that Google Play is draining power supplies by repeatedly and unexpectedly using GPS , something more annoying is now clear: the app store is constantly tracking your whereabouts, and Google has made it impossible to switch this off unless you completely kill off location tracking for all applications.

You can try to deny Google Play access to your handheld's location by opening the Settings app and digging through Apps -> Google Play Store -> Permissions, and flipping the switch for "location." But you'll be told you can't just shut out Google Play services: you have to switch off location services for all apps if you want to block the store from knowing your whereabouts. It's all or nothing, which isn't particularly nice.

In what should come as a surprise to no one, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Wednesday confirmed that RBI's new Rs. 2000 note has no GPS tracking chip.

"From where did you come to know this? I haven't heard of it," Jaitley replied when asked by a reporter if the new Rs. 2,000 note issued by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has a chip to enable its tracking via satellites.

That's official confirmation for something we already told you on Wednesday , dispelling rumours floating on WhatsApp and other social media that RBI's new Rs. 2000 notes have a 'near-field GPS' or NGC chip that will be used to track these notes.

It's been a crazy week that's taken people by surprise on a number of fronts. In India, the biggest news of the week is of course the demonetisation of the Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes; the notes have been discontinued, and new Rs. 500, and Rs. 2000 notes are being issued, though right now it's hard enough just to get Rs. 100 notes from ATMs.

This has spawned some crazy rumours, such as the idea that the Rs. 2000 note is tracking you via GPS. No, the new Rs. 2000 note will not have a 'Nano GPS chip' - the tech that's described in the rumours is practically science fiction. Even so, the idea seems to have struck a chord with the people, even forcing Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to publicly dismiss them .

We're all still feeling the effects of the demonetisation, though hopefully it'll be business as usual soon. However, on Tuesday, the RBI website went offline as it struggled to cope with the surge of traffic following Prime MInister Modi's announcement on demonetisation. The PM's popularity seems to have suffered a little at first because of the decision - a Twitter analytics website showed that PM Modi lost 3 lakh followers the next day following the demonetisation announcement. It balanced out quickly though, as the PM got an additional 4.3 followers one day later. That was only one of the big stories of the week though. Here's everything else you might have missed.
