Starbucks to Roll Out App Update in Effort to Fix Security Flaw

TheStreet (Jan. 17, 2014) — After security researcher Daniel Wood disclosed earlier in the week that the Starbucks app stores user names, email addresses, passwords and even geolocation information in unencrypted, clear text, Starbucks executives confirmed that app users' information could be visible to anyone with access to the phone if it was connected to a computer.

Facebook May Be Banned in China, But Ad Sales Are Alive

TheStreet (May 13, 2014) — Facebook may be banned in China, but that hasn't slowed the social media giant from quietly building its advertising business there. Bloomberg reports that Facebook is looking to lease office space in China, presumably to open an office there. However, the company has already been working with exports on advertising. Facebook has essentially become more of an advertising company than a social media company since the social network went public, and companies have learned that a Facebook page is no good without spending some ad dollars since Facebook cut back on organic reach.
