indoor navigation: emerging tech revolution

WHY IT’S THE ‘NEXT BIG THING’ FOR SMARTPHONES It’s impossible to deny the nigh-on revolutionary effect that Global Positioning System (GPS) technology and all of the features built upon it have had on our lives.

Now, though, it seems that another navigation revolution is at hand: the emergence of indoor positioning technology.

report: facebook considering its own cryptocurrency for payments

The Wall Street Journal reports that Facebook plans a cryptocurrency-based payment system that it could launch for billions of users worldwide.

trump attacks social media companies after facebook bans

President Donald Trump criticized social media companies after Facebook banned a number of extremist figures, declaring that he was “monitoring and watching, closely!!” Trump, who tweeted and re-tweeted complaints, said he would “monitor the censorship of AMERICAN CITIZENS on social media platforms.” He has previously asserted that social media companies exhibit bias against conservatives, something the companies have rejected as untrue.
