  1. Binance, the world’s biggest crypto exchange, has launched its own blockchain. Here’s what that means.
  2. Facebook said it stored millions of Instagram passwords without the proper security measures.
  3. Wow! A lot of profiteering in that room. How to best caption this photo? LOL "Say have you heard of Monsanto and Halliburton?"

  5. You thought ordering that colon cleansing tea off Instagram was easy before? You’re in for a real treat now. Instagram is adding a checkout feature that’ll let users buy products from brands and retailers on their feed directly inside the app, meaning they won’t have to leave Instagram to finish the transaction. Advantage retailers: When it takes fewer steps to complete a purchase, shoppers are far more likely to smash that “place order” button. Advantage Instagram: First, it’ll keep a small cut of each sale. Plus, it makes sense for IG parent Facebook. For now, only Instagram will store shoppers’ payment and shipping info, but remember...Facebook has said that payments and commerce is a revenue stream it’ll be leaning into going forward. The checkout feature is starting with just 20 brands. The WSJ calls it a “cautious step” toward taking on Amazon, but you can call it a quick way to blow your bonus. Via Morning Brew
  6. Yesterday was a historic one for Facebook (+0.69%). It announced big changes to its rules for advertisers to settle a cluster of lawsuits claiming it allowed ad buyers to illegally discriminate against minorities—mainly people of color. The backstory: Two years’ worth of investigative reports (and a handful of high-profile lawsuits) uncovered how some ad buyers abused FB’s platform to block minority groups from seeing ads about certain opportunities for housing, employment, and credit. Going forward, Facebook will remove age, gender, and ZIP code targeting for housing, employment, and credit-related ads on all platforms, plus... There will be a new advertising process tailored specifically for marketers purchasing ads in those sectors. And FB will launch an archive for housing ads (like it did for political ads) to allow users to search all active housing ads on FB, whether or not they’re being targeted by them. Zoom out: As Axios puts it, internet platforms that sell ads aren’t regulated the same way TV and radio are. This probably isn’t the last time you’ll watch a tech company address ad transparency.
  7. But don’t worry about hiding your stash in your video game console. After all, you may not even have a console after Google’s big announcement yesterday. It revealed a new video game streaming platform called Stadia that hopes to push the industry further into the cloud. How it works No one likes a backseat gamer, but it’s helpful to have Google VP Phil Harrison teach us one way to fire up a game on Stadia: You watch a game trailer on YouTube. When the video is over, you get the option to “Play on Stadia.” If you select that option, the game will launch in that same YouTube window and you can start playing in as fast as five seconds. Then, you can share a video of your game with your friends and loop them in to play with you. And here’s a big selling point: The only new hardware for Stadia is a Wi-Fi-enabled controller. The platform will work on smartphones, PCs, and TVs using Google’s Chrome browser (but not on Apple’s iOS). Let’s take a stretch break Google’s entering the gaming industry with a bit of catching up to docompared to its Big Tech peers. It sold $21.5 billion worth of games on its own app store last year, while Apple’s App Store did $33 billion in game sales, according to Sensor Tower. And there’s no shortage of competition in games streaming, from Sony to Nvidia to Microsoft. Btw, if you were wondering why tech giants are interested in video games… Their vast network of servers puts them in a great position to leverage cloud technology. The gaming market’s been valued at $180 billion. Bottom line: Stadia is an innovative platform...but it's going to need more than Block Dude to compete. May the best content win.
  8. Imagine how much gas we would all save.... accidents wouldn't kill people... we would all live much closer to work.... AND we all might get skinny in the process 😉
  9. , em vez de gastar milhões em marketing com jogadores de futebol, artistas, políticos, sem falar gastos com arte de gosto duvidável, o banco fez algo que jamais será esquecido pelos seus clientes. É Natal!Incrível !!! 1507940147251-drlcss.mp4
