Apple's game service? Foxconn shifts factory plans
This is CNET and here are the stories that matter this week.
According to a developing report from Cheddar, Apple is working on a subscription service for games.
The company supposedly began reaching out to game makers in the second half of last year but word is the entire program is very much in the early stages.
Google showed off compelling cloud-based gaming last year with a version of Assassin's Creed for its Chrome browser, but how Apple service will work is still unknown.
Facebook is in a heap of trouble with Apple over a data-collecting app that the social network used for market research, possibly impacting Facebook's ability to test other apps internally.
Facebook paid people between the ages of 13 and 35 on a monthly basis to download an app that collected research data.
And Apple has since blocked it.
And finally the massive Foxconn plan to build a campus in Wisconsin has shifted focus from display manufacturing to design, research and development.
This pours cold water on hopes that it would bring thousands of blue collar jobs to the area, not to mention it's received over $4 billion in state subsidies already.
