Johnson & Johnson vaccine approved, Facebook settles $650M suit
This is CNET and here are the stories that matter right now.
The US Food and Drug Administration authorized Johnson and Johnson single dose COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use on Saturday, making it the third vaccine on the US market.
The approval comes a day after the FDA vaccines and related biological products advisory committee unanimously voted to approve the vaccine.
Johnson and Johnson has said it will provide the US with 100 million doses by the end of June.
According to The New York Times.
A judge has approved what he called one of the largest ever settlements of a privacy lawsuit, with Facebook being commanded to pay $650 million to users who alleged the company created and stored scans of their faces without permission.
The class action suit filed in Illinois in 2015 alleged that the scans were created without user consent and violated the biometric Information Privacy Act of Illinois, which regulates facial recognition, fingerprinting and other biometric technologies in the state.
And finally, Apple has figured out a workaround to face ID not working while wearing a mask.
But there's also a catch, you have to have an Apple watch.
The function which is currently in beta allows you to use face ID as normal holding your phone up to your face.
And if your Apple Watch is in close proximity, it will provide a haptic tap to indicate that it unlocked your phone for you.
The watch alert also includes a button to lock your phone in case it was unlocked by someone else.
