Talking Tech - February 15:
Deleting your Messenger mistakes and Apple’s “Netflix for News”

Facebook Messenger has a new feature to help when you accidentally send someone to the wrong person or said something you instantly regret. You now have 10 minutes to delete the post from the other person’s device.

Apple is diving deeper into the News business by getting into the subscription game with a “Netflix for News”. Instead of subscribing individually to The NY Times, Washington Post, WSJ, etc you can get one subscription to Apple News and read it all. Apple will take a cut of the rumored $10 a month, sharing the rest between publishers, dividing it up by the amount of time people spend with each publisher. According to BuzzFeed, March 25 is launch day.
