Who's winning the thermostat wars in your home?

Facebook is launching a news section — and will pay some publishers millions

  • The occasion is the launch of Facebook’s news section, which will give users a way to scan headlines and read some news stories — and which will give some publishers, like News Corp, millions of dollars a year for making their journalism available to Facebook.
  • Users who click on the icon will see headlines for a handful of top stories, selected by Facebook editors — from partners like the Wall Street Journal (which is owned by News Corp), Business Insider, and BuzzFeed — and a personalized selection of headlines selected by Facebook’s algorithmic software.
  • By contrast, the program Zuckerberg is announcing Friday appears rather straightforward: Facebook will pay publishers for work they already make and then share to the platform, which means it is pure profit.

Disney Plus' 'The Mandalorian' crushed Apple's launch shows in audience anticipation

  • Disney's streaming service, Disney Plus, debuted on Tuesday, a little over a week after Apple's own streaming offering, Apple TV Plus, launched.
  • It includes TV shows and movies across Disney's library that includes Marvel and "Star Wars," while Apple TV Plus launched with just eight original shows and one documentary film.
  • The former two were torn apart by critics and, based on data provided to Business Insider, audiences weren't excited about them, either — at least compared to "The Mandalorian," Disney Plus' original "Star Wars" series.
  • Disney Plus also beat Apple TV Plus in Twitter mentions on launch day, further showing how much more the former is driving conversation.
  • Disney Plus had 512,676 Twitter mentions by Tuesday afternoon, while Apple TV Plus racked up just 69,904 mentions on its launch day, according to social-media analytics company Sprout Social.

T-Mobile shares slide on report that it might lose its CEO to WeWork

  • Shares of T-Mobile fell as much as 2.9% Monday after The Wall Street Journal reported that its CEO John Legere was in talks to take the helm at WeWork.
  • If Legere does take the top spot at WeWork, it could disrupt T-Mobile's pending merger with Sprint.
  • The merger between the third- and fourth-largest US wireless companies cleared a hurdle in July when the Justice Department approved the acquisition.
  • Both companies agreed to sell parts of each business to Dish, the pay-TV operator, to secure approval for the merger.
  • The deal could stumble without Legere at the helm of T-Mobile, as he's turned the company around and spearheaded the takeover of Sprint, according to the Journal.
  • Legere might not take the CEO position at WeWork, the Journal reported, as he stands to receive a bonus if the takeover of Sprint is completed.
