1. Facebook is Reportedly Searching for a Cybersecurity Company

After a major security breach, Facebook is reportedly preparing to make a large acquisition of a cybersecurity company. This breach is believed to have compromised over 29 million users’ personal data. As users become more wary of how companies are using their personal data, particularly Facebook, the social media network knows it needs to invest big in protecting users.

2. China Requiring End of Anonymity in Blockchain

China famously does not allow Bitcoin trading at any capacity, but the government is now enacting even stricter regulations on the technology behind cryptocurrency—blockchain. China will soon require blockchain users to register with their government IDs, marking the end of anonymity for blockchain users in China.

4. New Apple iPhone XR is Cheaper but Well Suited for Most Users

The new Apple iPhone XR has a price tag of $750—which is a bit of a relief on consumer wallets considering the iPhone X and new iPhone XS and XS Max start at $1,000. According to reviewers of Apple’s latest product, the iPhone XR is very comparable to more expensive iPhone models, and the differences in this less expensive model won’t be noticeable to the average user.

5. Holiday Tech Spending Projected to Reach Record $96.1B in Revenue

The holidays will be here before you know it, and many people will be giving and receiving gifts that are some form of a tech product. It is projected that more people than ever will buy emerging tech—including smart home speakers, smartwatches and more.
