FTC looking into Facebook privacy practices, Apple to spend $1B on original content
This is cnet and here are the stories that matter right now.
The Federal Trade Commission is looking at Facebook's privacy practices following it's data breach involving Cambridge Analytica.
37 state attorneys general have demanded answers as well, as Facebook continues to reel from its controversal handling of user data.
Facebook stocks are down almost 14% since the scandal broke on March 16th.
It looks like Apple will spend north of $1 billion on original programming, according to the New York Times.
Since October, the company has acquired 12 major projects, three-quarters of which have been okayed for full series.
Look for the new programming to launch sometime in the first half of next year.
Some of the content includes a relaunch of Steven Spielberg's amazing stories, and a thriller from M. Night Shyamalan.
And finally, Acer has released the Tab 10, a 9.7 inch educational-focus tablet that runs Chrome OS.
The move is likely to get out in front of Apple's educational iPad announcement that's happening Tuesday.
And it's worth noting, that in 2017, nearly three out of every five machines used in schools, ran Chrome OS.
