Facebook moves 1.5 billion users from Ireland to U.S. escaping EU privacy laws

You would expect that with the level of scrutiny that Facebook is now under following the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the company would be on its best behavior. But that doesn’t seem to matter to Mark Zuckerberg and crew. Consider that on May 25th, Europe’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law goes into effect. Simply put, the new law prevents personal data from being used without express consent. Considering that the penalty for failing to comply is a whopping 4% of a company’s global revenues, you might see why it behooves Facebook to keep its nose clean.

However, Facebook …

Fortnite mobile is not even available on Android, but it already made $15 million in less than a month since its release in the App Store. Although the amount may seem impressive, it’s not at all surprising considering the game raked in $1.5 million in the first four days.

According to the data provided by Sensor Tower, Fortnite daily revenue increased exponentially over the course of the month. After Epic Games lifted the invite requirement last week, the player expenditure increased by almost 200% (about three times increase), versus $620,000 average across all previous days.

Honor 10 may be revealed on May 15

It looks like this year, with few exceptions, all smartphone companies have decided to out their flagships earlier than usual. Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Note 9 several weeks earlier, while HTC and LG are way late to the party.

Honor usually unveils its flagships in Q2 and this year is no exception. However, unlike last year when Honor 9 was announced in mid-June, the Honor 10 might be introduced a month earlier.

The handset maker is now sending invitations to the media for a launch event set for May 15. The event will take place in London, UK, and is likely to focus …
