Amazon launches Instant Pickup, a massive donation from Bill Gates
This is CNET, and are the stories that matter right now.
Amazon has launched an instant pickup service that will allows users grab essential items within two minutes of placing an order.
There's a catch though, it's only currently available in five cities, Atlanta, Berkley, College Park, Columbus, and Las Angeles, and even still, it only makes sense for customers that live close to the locations.
Bill Gates has made a massive donation, giving away 5% of his fortune in the form of Microsoft shares.
That's 64 million shares to be exact, the gift worth $4.6 billion.
Though the Recipient is currently unspecified, the majority of Gates' donations have been to his philanthropic foundation.
And finally, Uber is attempting to further protect its user base, by agreeing with the FTC to form a privacy program that will submit regular audits for as long as 20 years.
These issues go back as far as 2014, when the FTC first believed the company did not closely enough monitor How employees access user data.
