LinkedIn pushes news with Channels

Business news becomes a bigger focus for LinkedIn, the Start button could return to Windows, and a NASA spacecraft will send your name to Mars.

CNET Update is big on Mars:


In this edition of Update:

- LinkedIn is pushing personalized business news to users with Channels on LinkedIn Today. The professional social network has been busy lately with the acquisition of Pulse and adding the ability to put images and video in profiles.

- Windows 8 users could see the Start button again someday, according to a Windows executive.

- Ford's Sync system now works with the Amazon Cloud Player iOS app, so iPhone owners can stream music from their Amazon cloud storage.

- If you can't go to Mars, at least let your name be known on the red planet. The Going to Mars Campaign will put your name -- and maybe even your poem -- on NASA's MAVEN spacecraft heading to Mars.
