Apple Vows to Fix iPhone 5 Models With Faulty Sleep/Wake Buttons

TheStreet (Apr. 28, 2014) — Apple says it will fix applicable iPhone 5 models with problematic sleep/wake buttons for free. The company announced it has launched a program to fix iPhone 5s models that were manufactured through March 2013 -- as long as the phone is otherwise working properly and has a qualifying serial number, which customers can check on Apple's Web site. It will take four to six days for phones to be repaired -- but the company will provide 16GB iPhone 5 loaners in the meantime. Video provided by TheStreet

Facebook Is Going to Let Advertisers Target You Based on Location

TheStreet (Oct. 8, 2014) — Facebook is going to start allowing advertisers to target its users based on their locations. In a blog post, the social media network announced its new local awareness ads, designed to help local businesses reach more customers. The ads will let businesses show ads to people near their neighborhoods. The company says they're built to be more cost-effective than traditional advertising channels. When it comes to privacy, Facebook says advertisers select locations, not individuals and users will only see ads based on their recent location if location services are enabled on their phone. The ads will roll out to U.S. advertisers in the coming weeks. Video provided by TheStreet

EU Court Slams Google, Says People Have 'Right to Be Forgotten' Online

EU Court Slams Google, Says People Have 'Right to Be Forgotten' Online

TheStreet (May 13, 2014) — The European Union's Court of Justice ruled Tuesday that people have the right to make Google delete information about them in search results. The justices sided with privacy advocates who argued that people should have a right to erase their online lives. The ruling stemmed from a case involving a Spanish man who claimed that a home foreclosure notice, which was published by a local newspaper 16 years ago, should no longer be linked to him. Google says it was "disappointed" with the decision and will look at what it will mean for its business. Google is facing privacy investigations around the world as it continues to add services and see increasing competition with Facebook for users and advertisers. Video provided by TheStreet
