In that context, E.gg is fun to look at, but it also scans as a rhetorical exercise to prove a point. When I reached out to Facebook to hear more about why E.gg was created, I was directed to a recent report—commissioned by Facebook—showing that “about one-third of [the] top 100 most downloaded apps are new entrants each year.” In other words, that there is no monopoly on human attention, and there is plenty of room for creative upstarts. Ime Archibong, the head of the New Product Experimentation team, reiterated this point in an emailed statement, saying, “Last year, the average person had 93 apps installed on their phone and used 41 per month … All of this choice and competition fuels innovation.”

At the hearing, Representative Joe Neguse of Colorado hounded Zuckerberg over the consolidation of the social-media market, listing Myspace, Friendster, Orkut,

Combative TikTok Founder Races to Save App Before Trump Ban

(Bloomberg) — Zhang Yiming is the little-known Chinese entrepreneur who built TikTok into one of the most promising franchises on the internet. Now the brainy, combative founder is under pressure to save the business from Trump administration threats.

Venture investors in TikTok parent ByteDance Ltd. have approached Zhang with a range of proposals to address U.S. concerns that the short-video app is a security threat, according to people familiar with the matter. They include selling a majority stake in TikTok to American interests, perhaps strategic investors or the venture firms themselves, said the people, asking not to be identified because the talks are private.

Zhang, who controls the company, has so far resisted. He’s tried building up TikTok’s operations in the U.S., hiring an American chief executive officer and reassuring regulators that user data will not be shared outside the country. TikTok has also stepped up its lobbying in Washington,

Google Sued for Allegedly Tracking App Users After They Opt Out

Consumer Reports has no financial relationship with advertisers on this site.

Is Google tracking you as you move around the internet, even if you’ve opted out of data collection?

A lawsuit filed in California is making that claim. The issues are complicated, but one thing seems clear: The suit highlights the sprawling nature of Google’s business, and how hard it is for consumers to understand all the ways the company can collect and use their personal data.

The lawsuit was filed in federal court in San Jose, Calif., on behalf of two consumers, but it asks for class action status that could allow many more plaintiffs to join the suit.

If you’ve got a Google account, you can use a privacy setting called Web & App Activity to tell the company not to collect and use information it gathers from your searches, web browsing, and other sources. The setting was

  • It lets you sort emails into categories for newsletters and shipping notifications, and makes it possible to screen emails just like you screen phone calls.

  • The email provider, which was initially invite-only, has caught on in the short time it’s been available, breaking into the top 100 iPhone apps the day after it launched.

India’s App Ban Threatens China’s Rise as a Global Tech Power

(Bloomberg) — China over the past decade built an alternate online reality where Google and Facebook barely exist. Now its own largest tech corporations from Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. to Tencent Holdings Ltd. are getting a taste of what a shutout feels like.

India’s unprecedented decision to ban 59 of China’s largest apps is a warning to the country’s tech giants, who for years thrived behind a government-imposed Great Firewall that kept out many of America’s best-known internet names. If India finds a way to carry out that threat, it may present a model for other countries from Europe to Southeast Asia that seek to curtail the pervasiveness of apps like ByteDance Ltd.’s TikTok while safeguarding their citizens’ enormously valuable data.

The surprise moratorium hit Chinese internet companies just as they were beginning to make headway in the world’s fastest-growing mobile arena, en route to going global and challenging American

Marlboro Family Develops App To Support Small Businesses

MARLBORO, NJ – As Marlboro Township School District students Raghav and Vaibhav Herugu traded in-person classes for online learning amid the coronavirus pandemic, the brothers also traded quarantine boredom for an impactful project to help sustain the local economy.

Enlisting the help of their parents and a close family friend, the pair founded Local Main Street, a website and phone application aimed to connect local residents with local establishments, many of which still struggle to get on their feet after the state shut down various non-essential services in March.

The website sells vouchers for nearby restaurants, spas, music schools and handmade goods. The vouchers do not expire and will help small businesses keep their doors open until customers feel safe enough to go outside and use their services.

“During the COVID-19 crisis, we saw a lot of businesses shutting down and struggling to survive, so we just tried to
