Facebook Integrates Messenger Chat With Instagram

By [email protected]_84

Facebook  (FB) – Get Report said on Wednesday that it would incorporate its Messenger service with Instagram’s direct messages, enabling the apps’ users to directly communicate with each other through calls and chats.

Users can also control where and whether they receive messages and calls — in their chats or message requests, or not at all according to the company’s privacy control policies, the Menlo Park, Calif., social-media giant said in a statement.

With the new update, Facebook is changing how users can control their privacy, including tools that will enable them to report suspicious activity.

Facebook said it would first integrate those features on Instagram and Messenger in a few countries and then expand globally.

With the update, users can stay connected with their friends and family without deciding which app to use to communicate. Instagram users can decide if they want to update to the new

Seattle sets minimum wage for Lyft, Uber drivers

By [email protected]_84

The US city of Seattle has announced a minimum wage for Uber and Lyft drivers, a move criticised by the ride-hailing companies as potentially destroying thousands of jobs.

The northwestern city is the second in the United States to impose such measures after New York in 2019.

“The pandemic has exposed the fault lines in our systems of worker protections, leaving many front line workers like gig workers without a safety net,” Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan said in a statement Tuesday.

The minimum wage “guarantees that drivers will receive fair pay and can provide for themselves and their families,” she said.

From January, rideshare drivers in Seattle will need to earn at least $16.39 per hour.

Uber, in a letter to the Seattle city government last month, said that the same policy in New York had “led to fewer work opportunities for drivers and higher prices.”

“Thousands of New York

This Ergonomic New Mercedes-AMG Baby Stroller Takes Design Cues From the Marque’s Luxury Cars

By [email protected]_84

Besides its brilliant engineering and eye-catching aesthetics, Mercedes is renowned for its safety. So, it only makes sense that the marque would put that knowledge to use to help parents transport the most precious cargo of all: babies.

The venerated German automaker partnered with Hartan to craft a stroller with all the precision and thoughtfulness of its namesake vehicles. A follow-up to the duo’s first collaboration in 2018, the stroller has been completely redesigned and now comes in two versions, which take their inspiration directly from some of the marque’s classic features.

Hartan, a German manufacturer of strollers, consulted Mercedes’s design department to bring ergonomic functionality to the sporty structure. To create the smoothest possible ride, Hartan borrowed the five-double-spoked wheels from an AMG design with suspension and air-chamber tires inspired by the C-class car. Those same wheels can also break efficiently as a

Palantir IPO Cements Billionaire Fortunes For Cofounder Peter Thiel And CEO Alexander Karp

By [email protected]_84

After nearly two decades as one of Silicon Valley’s most closely guarded companies, data mining company Palantir Technologies finally went public on Wednesday in an unusual direct listing process.  After an expected delayed first trade, Palantir opened at 1:40 pm Eastern trading at $10 a share, up from the $7.25 reference price the company set on Tuesday night. It hit $11 at 1:50PM Eastern.

In a direct listing, the company does not raise funds for itself. Instead, existing shareholders get a chance to sell.  

Controversial investor Peter Thiel, who cofounded Palantir in 2003 and bankrolled the company in its early years, will be the biggest winner today as company chairman and its largest individual shareholder. 

Thiel and three investment firms he founded, Founders Fund, Clarium Capital and Mithril Capital, owned a total of 17.7% of the company before the
