    Uber and Facebook: Partners in crime

    Uber and Facebook: Partners in crime Uber's IPO will probably be the biggest since Facebook's. It's remarkable how similar the companies are. He made the world a better place. For himself.

The head of Facebook’s blockchain subsidiary Calibra David Marcus has released his prepared testimony before congress for tomorrow and Wednesday, explaining that the Libra Association will be regulated by the Swiss government since that’s where it’s headquartered.

  5. This record-breaking fine will become an indelible mark, reminding the world why the social network is not to be trusted. That’s bad news for Libra. It looks like Facebook’s $5 billion settlement, which was ratified by the Federal Trade Commission, will likely go through. The deal was approved 3-2 along party lines, with the Republican commissioners voting for it and the Dems—who represent, arguably, the victims of the Cambridge Analytica data breach that may have helped elect Donald Trump—voting against it. All that remains is for the
  6. Jaguar is a mouse. He lives at Harvard’s Rowland Institute, where, from time to time, he plays video games on a rig that looks like it belongs in A Clockwork Orange. Metal bars position him inside a small platform in front of a metal lever; his mission is to find a virtual box’s edges by feel. To do this, he reaches with his right paw to grab the joystick, which can rotate 360 degrees, and maneuvers it until he feels feedback from the machine. When he reaches the right target area—say, an edge of the box—a tube rewards him with a dribble of sugar water. To track Jaguar’s

  9. BERLIN (Reuters) - German authorities have fined Facebook 2 million euros ($2.26 million) for providing a distorted picture of the amount of illegal content on the social media platform, a violation of the country’s law on internet transparency. In a statement issued on Tuesday, the Federal Office of Justice, a judicial agency, said that by publishing incomplete information regarding the complaints it had received, the web giant created a skewed picture. Faced with a global backlash over the role its platform played in election campaigns from the United S
  10. SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Facebook’s Silicon Valley campus received the all-clear on Tuesday after fears that a package at its mail facility contained the nerve agent sarin.

  12. An Australian Court has ruled that media organizations are liable for anything defamatory that’s published to the public Facebook pages of those media companies, even if it’s just posted by a random Facebook user. The Supreme Court of New South Wales ruled today that Facebook pages controlled by the Australian media companies Fairfax, Nationwide News, and Sky News all contained defamatory content and that they should be held liable despite the fact that none of the news organizations published the content to Facebook themselves. Dylan Voller, an Aboriginal-

  18. WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Facebook Inc is “delusional” to believe people will trust it with their money, a U.S. senator said on Tuesday as lawmakers from both sides of the aisle grilled the social media company on its plans for a digital currency at a hearing on Tuesday.

  22. SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Friday denied Facebook Inc.’s request to dismiss a lawsuit by the Washington, D.C. attorney general over the social media giant’s improper sharing of 87 million users’ data with British political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica.

That, as the New York Times’ Mike Isaac points out, is the real story here: the United States government spent months coming up with a punishment for Facebook’s long list of privacy-related bad behavior, and the best it could do was so weak that Facebook’s stock price went up. From some other perspectives, that $5 billion fine is a big
