It looks like Facebook is indeed building an internet satellite.
The social network is working on a new satellite project that will provide broadband internet connections to "unserved and underserved areas," according to FCC documents uncovered by Wired.
The documents, produced by a Freedom of Information Act request, detail several email exchanges between FCC officials and Facebook representatives from 2016 and 2018. In the 2018 messages, Facebook reps refer to a "small satellite experimental application for the Athena satellite." Read more...More about Tech, Facebook, Tech, and Social Media Companies
M. Night Shyamalan's latest brings together the stories of two of his movies —2000’s Unbreakable and 2016’s Split.
Following the events of Split, Glass picks up in a mental hospital with a woman (Sarah Paulson) treating Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), David Dunn (Bruce Willis) and The Horde (McAvoy). Given the title and his eponymous character, it's safe to infer that Jackson will play a bigger role in this as his alias Mr. Glass. Anya Taylor-Joy will reprise her role as Casey Cooke, who was abducted in Split. Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard also star.

The app will also remove the "quick forward" shortcut that appears alongside media messages. Read more...More about Tech, Facebook, Whatsapp, Social Media Companies, and Tech
Stop me if you've heard this one before: Facebook allows a third-party analytics company access to user data, conducts poor oversight of said company, and then is caught flat-footed when asked about the situation by a journalist.
Yeah, it's happened again. And no, you're not crazy for getting that Cambridge Analytica déjà vu. Facebook was forced to suspend Boston-based Crimson Hexagon today after the Wall Street Journal reported on the company's contracts with a Kremlin-tied Russian nonprofit and the U.S. government.Facebook, Privacy, Mark Zuckerberg, Cambridge Analytica, and Tech
It's official: For the first time this century, Lieutenant Spock will appear in a new episode of a Star Trek TV show.
Spock appears in the second season of Star Trek Discovery, executive producer Alex Kurtzman revealed at San Diego Comic Con.
A question mark had hung over Spock's potential appearance in the show since the end of Season 1. In its final minutes, out of nowhere, the Discovery comes across a distress signal from the USS Enterprise — commanded by Christopher Pike, the predecessor to Captain James T. Kirk.
