Instagram Stories outpaced Snapchat? Nintendo to stop making NES ClassicThe biggest tech headlines of the day include Facebook claiming Instagram Stories is more popular than Snapchat, Nintendo's discontinuing of the NES Classic and Uber's supposed spying on Lyft.
This is cnet and here are the stories that matter right now. Facebook says that Instagram stories is now more popular than Snapchat. That's counting the more than 200 million people who use the feature as opposed to the 158 million users that Snapchat reported at the end of 2016. Facebook has successfully lifted essential Snapchat features and retooled them for Instagram. Nintendo is reportedly discontinuing the incredibly popular NES Classic Retro console that jammed 30 classic titles into a tiny NES replica The news is frustrating as Nintendo had never mentioned the Classic would be a limited edition, while quantities were never able to keep up with the high demand. And finally, the information is reporting that at one point Uber was using an internal app nicknamed hell that used fake Lyft accounts to stalk nearby drivers and report their location data. If proven to be true, Uber could be liable under laws that protect against unfair business practices.
