    Moving to the first one, Facebook's stock went up after news of a record-breaking $5 billion FTC fine for various privacy violations broke last week. As The New York Times points out that the United States government spent months coming up with a punishment for Facebook's privacy-related bad behavior, and the best it could do was so weak that Facebook's stock price went up. From some other perspectives, that $5 billion fine is a big deal, of course: it's the biggest fine in FTC history, far bigger than the $22 million fine against Google in 2012. The largest FTC fine in the history of the country represents basically a month of Facebook's revenue, and the company did such a good job of telegraphing it to investors that the stock price went up.

    iOS 13 will be able to automatically silence any calls coming in from an unknown number. The new "silence unknown callers" option can be toggled on or off based on your preference, but I'm thinking most people will enable it right after updating. So many of the spam calls we're bombarded with on a daily basis are spoofed to look like a local number. But Apple says that iOS 13 will "use Siri intelligence to allow calls to ring your phone from numbers in Contacts, Mail, and Messages." Any number that can't be found in one of those places will be routed to voicemail. More




    The Russian government has added dating service Tinder on a government database that legally forces the company to hand over user data and private communications to the country's law enforcement and intelligence agencies.

    All newly created user accounts in macOS Catalina will use zee shell by default. Bash shell will still be available, but Apple is signaling that developers should start moving to zee shell on macOS Mojave. Apple hasn't explained exactly why it's making this change, but bash isn't exactly a modern shell. Apple is stuck using version 3.2 of bash that has been licensed under GPLv2, as newer versions are licensed under GPLv3. Apple has kept clear of using GPLv3 packages in macOS as the license is generally more restrictive to companies like Apple that sign their own code and it includes explicit patent grants, too.

Plus, this method creates a unique random email for each app, so that they can't track you and your personal data. More
