Facebook's 3in1 Messaging Strategy: More User Data!
Facebook has three popular, and increasingly similar, messaging apps that all run different code. While Mark Zuckerberg plots to bring them together into a common platform to improve performance and simplify development, we suspect the real goal is more user data and better advertising models. Plus our Fast Five: - The first jack-less, port-less, butt-less phone from Vivo; - The FCC's strange case against Qualcomm; - Amazon's questionable Rekognition recognition issue; - Is Apple's answer to climate change an iPhone flashlight; and - IBM's financials are actually kinda impressive. Our Tech Bites Winner: Facebook encourages kids to spend mom & dad's money. What could go wrong with Facebook's "friendly fraud" strategy? Our Crystal Ball: Huawei claims it will soon be #1 in smartphone sales, but just how realistic is this in an environment mired in trade wars and corporate espionage?
