  1. The UK Government is cracking down fake news about coronavirus. “A rapid response unit will try to tackle a range of issues online, such as fake “experts” issuing false medical information and criminals running phishing scams.”
  2. Apple partnered with CDC and the White House to create a coronavirus screening website and app. Apple said they are meant to “make it easy for people across the country to get trusted information and guidance at a time when the US is feeling the heavy burden of COVID-19.”
  3. UK broadband providers are removing all data caps on fixed-line broadband services. “The companies, which include BT (BT.L), Virgin Media (LBTYA.O), Sky (CMCSA.O) and TalkTalk (TALK.L), committed to support and protect vulnerable customers during the pandemic after talks with the government and regulator Ofcom.”
  4. A Zoom iOS update removes the code that sent data to Facebook. “Zoom said the data collected did not include personal user information, but rather information about users’ devices. Users should update the iOS app to the latest version for the change to take effect, the company said.”
  5. The new Galaxy Chromebook will be available to buy on April 6th.
