Amazon unveils new Echo range, Apple addresses Face ID security
This is CNET, and here are the stories that matter right now.
Amazon's family of Echo products have had a major update with a company unveiling a new Echo, complete with improved voice recognition, free calls to the U.S. and Canada, and a cheaper $100 price tag.
Amazon also revealed the new Echo Spot, a small smart speaker similar to the Echo Dot, complete with a color screen, priced at $130.
Apple has released a white paper explaining the security behind its Face ID technology set to roll out in the iPhone X in November.
According to Apple, Face ID won't capture a full image of your face but rather a mathematical representation made up of 30,000 dots.
Apple says the data is encrypted, but don't lose that password just yet, you'll still need it for setup and any time you turn your iPhone on.
And finally, Facebook has been forced to defend its role in the 2016 election after President Trump tweeted on Wednesday that Facebook was always anti-Trump.
In a post on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said he was wrong to dismiss suggestions Facebook spread misinformation ahead of the election.
He said, both sides are upset about ideas and content they don't like but ultimately the platform played an important role in keeping the public informed.
