Until now, you had to manually delete this data or turn it off entirely. Deleting it means Google doesn’t always have enough information about you to make recommendations on what it thinks you’ll like, or where you might want to go.

Now, you can tell Google to automatically delete personal information after three months or 18 months. Here’s how you can do that.

Facebook rolls back ban on cryptocurrency ads as it ramps up its own blockchain efforts

Facebook on Wednesday said it is loosening its ban on ads related to blockchain and cryptocurrency, allowing more businesses working on those technologies to promote their efforts on the social network. “While we will still require people to apply to run ads promoting cryptocurrency, starting today, we will narrow this policy to no longer require pre-approval for ads related to blockchain technology, industry news, education or events related to cryptocurrency.” In October, CNBC highlighted the

Facebook rolls back ban on cryptocurrency ads as it ramps up its own blockchain efforts

Facebook on Wednesday said it is loosening its ban on ads related to blockchain and cryptocurrency, allowing more businesses working on those technologies to promote their efforts on the social network.

Facebook first started blocking ads promoting cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings in January 2018 over concerns that users might be scammed by initial coin offerings offered by some crypto start-ups. The company loosened its ban in June to allow ads from advertisers who received prior written approval. Now, it is further rolling back the policy so that many types of ads will no longer require approval.

“We’ve listened to feedback and assessed the policy’s effectiveness,” Facebook said Wednesday in a blog post. “While we will still require people to apply to run ads promoting cryptocurrency, starting today, we will narrow this policy to no longer require pre-approval for ads related to blockchain technology, industry news, education or events related to cryptocurrency.”

The company has come under scrutiny over the wide reach of this policy over the past year.

In October, CNBC highlighted the ban’s impact on Bloom, a San Francisco start-up that uses blockchain technology to help people keep control over their personal data online. Bloom had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on Facebook ads to promote its services, but the saw all of its ads suddenly banned by the social network in October.

“It’s good to see them (hopefully) evolve their stance on new technology that puts users in control of their data,” said Shannon Wu of Bloom in a statement.

Facebook’s rollback of this ban comes amid reports that the company is working on its own blockchain project. In December, Bloomberg reported that the company is building a so-called stablecoin that will allow WhatsApp users to send cryptocurrency payments to one another. Facebook has been in talks with dozens of financial firms and e-commerce companies to support the initiative, the Wall Street Journal reported last week.

Apple shares to rise 20% on valuable ecosystem and new products, Needham says

Apple was upgraded to strong buy from buy at Needham on Thursday, as the firm primarily sees Apple’s ecosystem as having “value upside.” Needham also raised its price target on Apple to $225 from $180, a 20 percent increase from Wednesday’s close of $188.16 a share. Apple is expected to unveil a new streaming TV service at an event on March 25.

Apple shares to rise 20% on valuable ecosystem and new products, Needham says

Apple was upgraded to strong buy from buy at Needham on Thursday, as the firm primarily sees Apple’s ecosystem as having “value upside.”

“We anticipate better than previously expected results from both Services and Wearables, Home and Accessories, as well as valuation upside created by falling churn and strong barriers to entry” for competitors, Needham analyst Laura Martin said in a note to investors.

Apple shares rose 2 percent in trading. Needham also raised its price target on Apple to $225 from $180, a 20 percent increase from Wednesday’s close of $188.16 a share.

Needham believes the company’s new range of products will help drive the stock higher. Apple is expected to unveil a new streaming TV service at an event on March 25. As the owners of iPhones and iPads will, at least initially, have access to free original shows, Needham estimates Apple’s streaming service will “drive higher lifetime value” for 900 million users of Apple’s products, Martin said.

“Our 1Q19 proprietary survey tells us that, whether or not Wall Street believes AAPL is an ecosystem company, its users do,” Martin said.

The technology giant unveiled new iPad Air, iPad Mini and AirPods products just this week. Additionally, reports suggest Apple will also soon unveil its long-awaited AirPower wireless charging pad.

Google expected to announce Yeti gaming console, streaming service

Google is getting into gaming.

The tech giant best known for its search engine and Android operating system for smartphones now seeks to take a stab at revolutionizing the $100+ billion gaming industry currently dominated by incumbents like Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo. As Google seeks to diversify its revenue sources beyond digital ads, gaming presents a massive opportunity for the company.

But Google appears poised to take a different approach when it presents its vision for the “future of gaming” during its Game Developers Conference (GDC) presentation on Tuesday in San Francisco. That likely includes a commercial version of its “Project Stream” service and its rumored “Yeti” gaming console, both of which could realize the ultimate dream of a “Netflix for video games” streaming service.

Right now, if you want to play a hit game, you usually need to spend a few hundred bucks on a console like the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One or a good $1,000 or so on a high-end gaming PC. Then, you either need to go to the store and buy a physical game disc or wait for a large file to download to your console, which can take hours.

Google’s streaming service could change that model by letting users stream top games to the devices they already own, like a laptop, smartphone or streaming box connected to a TV.

“Cloud gaming will enable publishers to broaden their reach even further by potentially taping into new audiences on any device and any screen,” Forrester vice president and principal analyst Thomas Husson told CNBC. “Beyond music or video, gaming represents another opportunity to offer recurring streaming revenues for companies in the gaming ecosystem. For cloud platforms like Amazon, Google or Microsoft, it will also become an opportunity to offer cloud storage and services to game publishers, who spend more and more in their IT infrastructure.”

Tesla steps into hottest auto segment with Model Y debut Thursday

Tesla is about to dive into one of the hottest segments in the automotive market with the long-awaited debut of its Model Y crossover utility vehicle at its design studio in Los Angeles on Thursday night.

CEO Elon Musk has talked about releasing a crossover for years, but he’s kept the electric car maker tightly focused on ramping up production and distribution of its popular Model 3 premium sedan for the mass market. The Model 3 is Tesla’s first foray into vehicles priced well below the company’s high-end Model S sedan, with a base price of $69,250, and Model X SUV, which starts at around $78,450.

The Model Y, which will be unveiled at 11 p.m. EDT, is expected to be a more affordable alternative to its Model X and the company’s first entrance into the hot cross over market. The crossover is expected to be about 10 percent bigger than the Model 3, cost about 10 percent more, and will have slightly less range with the same size battery, Musk said in a March 3 tweet. Many investors and industry analysts say Tesla cannot enter the segment soon enough.

“Light trucks are just so popular in the United States, making up roughly 70 percent of vehicles sold every month,” said Morningstar analyst Dave Whiston. “Crossovers, in particular, are the most popular segment, at nearly 40 percent of new vehicle sales. So to have a more affordable crossover relative to the Model X should be a positive for Tesla.”
