#Microsoft  just can't seem to shake the image that Windows 10 is spying on you. And Microsoft's lack of transparency about Windows 10's privacy isn't doing much to dispel the notion. In the nearly three weeks following Windows 10's release, there have been numerous reports about how much personal information Microsoft collects, and the hurdles to stopping it. Now take a deep breath. There's actually a reasonable explanation for all of this -- it enables some of Windows 10's best and most convenient features. #Windows10    http://cnnmon.ie/1hKfQfx

It's still really good to "be like Mike." Basketball great Michael Jordan makes more money in retirement than most professional athletes do when they're at the top of their game. Jordan's most lucrative deal is with #Nike , which has paid out over $473 million dollars over the course of the contract, which he's had since 1993. A 1991 deal with #Gatorade  that's still in effect today is valued at $18 million and a deal he's had with #Hanes  since 1992 has netted him over $14 million. #MichaelJordan   http://cnnmon.ie/1NvaMp0

Talk about a toss up. The state of U.S. #jobs  is pretty healthy. But the latest jobs report presented a mixed bag of news. First the good: the U.S. #unemployment   rate fell to 5.1%, down by nearly half since the peak (10%) during the Great Recession. While it was a healthy sign, August's job gains sent more of a mixed message. The economy added 173,000 jobs in August. It was a decent gain in jobs for the month, but the number fell below economists' expectations. http://cnnmon.ie/1JElgzL

Meet BB-8. It's the new rolling droid that makes its big-screen debut in the highly anticipated "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." The film opens on December 18 -- but you don't need to wait until then. You can take BB-8 home this week. It's one of more than 100 new Disney-licensed Star Wars toys that hit stores Friday. Although very little is known about BB-8's role in the movie, the startup behind the toy promises that it's pretty close to character. The toy version of BB-8 is a 4.4-inch robot. It has a unique shape -- the body is a ball without any wheels and the head is magnetically attached -- which allows it to freely roll around. #BB8   #starwars   #ForceFriday   http://cnnmon.ie/1LXNdbs

Steve Ballmer's big business venture is in California now. But the former Microsoft CEO is still working to help young people in Washington break into tech. Ballmer, who left #Microsoft  last year and now owns the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers, and his wife are giving $11 million to the Washington State Opportunity Scholarship for #tech  students. Microsoft is injecting another $10 million. And the state of Washington will match the gift, bringing WSOS's new investment to a $42 million total. #SteveBallmer   http://cnnmon.ie/1EzFbmx

The new #iPhone  is just around the corner, and it's time to get serious about trading in your old #smartphone . #Apple  Stores, carriers and smartphone recycling companies are practically falling over themselves trying to get you to trade-in your old phone, offering huge deals. The market for older smartphones -- particularly used iPhones -- is exploding, and there's a likelihood that your old phone is worth hundreds of dollars. But deciding where to recycle your phone can be confusing. Each company is offering a slightly different promotion. Some are giving credits towards a new phone, others are giving discounts on service and then some are simply giving you cash. http://cnnmon.ie/1EyHYwa

Google's #logo  just went bigger in order to look better smaller.
The company made a major change to its logo Tuesday. It's keeping the same color scheme (but brightening it) and switching to an entirely new typeface. The custom typeface is now sans-serif and thicker. It's the same typeface that Google's new parent company Alphabet is using for its logo. The makeover has a practical motivation. This kind of lettering is easier to read when shrunk down, as #Google  products increasingly are on mobile devices and wearables. http://cnnmon.ie/1EwbxOQ

Mayer made the announcement Tuesday in a post on her official Tumblr page, saying the "twins part was quite a surprise."

T-Mobile CEO John Legere says a small fraction of his customers are "stealing data," and he is putting his foot down -- hard. In an open letter to T-Mobile customers with an unusually furious tone, Legere said that some customers are using special software to skirt past T-Mobile's #data   limits. He said if they continue to abuse the network, they'll be kicked off T-Mobile's unlimited data plans. #TMobile   http://cnnmon.ie/1Etpqxh

Everybody puts router in a corner. It's not just because Wi-Fi routers are unattractive (though most are). We hide them away because where there's a #router   there's also a nest of cords and aggressively blinking lights. Unfortunately, Wi-Fi networks are strongest when routers are visible. The antennas can reach farther when they're out in the open, not blocked by walls or furniture. Moving a router is one of the most effective things you can do to improve your Wi-Fi coverage.
To solve the the ugly router problem, #Google  has, rather unexpectedly, designed its own router. The Google #OnHub   is a $199 router that's easy on the eyes and even easier to set up. The company says the OnHub will simplify the set-up and day-to-day management of a wireless network. http://cnnmon.ie/1UhrKih

The invitations have arrived. #Apple  will hold a press event in San Francisco on September 9, at which it is widely expected to debut its new generation of #iPhones . The new iPhone 6S (or whatever it will be called) is expected to feature several enhancements including a "force touch" display that will reveal extra menu settings when you press down hard enough on the screen. That feature first debuted on the Apple Watch. Apple is also expected to announce that the iPhone 6S will have a better camera and a faster processor. #Siri   http://cnnmon.ie/1JoGfsk

Tesla's new Model S P85D is so good it broke Consumer Reports' scoring system. Consumer Reports rates vehicles on a zero-to-100 scale, but Tesla's high-performance, all-wheel-drive car scored 103. "Consumer Reports had to make changes to its scoring methodology to account for the car's exceptionally strong performance," the magazine said in a statement. #Tesla   #ModelS   #ConsumerReports    http://cnnmon.ie/1U80TVP

#Fox  News wants the famously non-apologetic Donald Trump to apologize for his latest round of attacks against prime time host Megyn Kelly. "Donald Trump's surprise and unprovoked attack on Megyn Kelly during her show last night is as unacceptable as it is disturbing," Fox News chairman Roger Ailes said in a statement Tuesday afternoon. He added, "Donald Trump rarely apologizes, although in this case, he should." Ailes was responding to a new storm of tweets from Trump, who said Kelly was "off her game" Monday night and retweeted people who called her a "bimbo" and "a waste." #DonaldTrump   #MegynKelly   #Foxnews   http://cnnmon.ie/1KhWAB3

Apple's $200 billion cash hoard, combined with its now $69 billion in annual free cash flow, often doesn't get the credit it deserves. The company has proven to investors it is willing to aggressively return a good chunk of this cash to shareholders through dividends and repurchases, with a heavy emphasis on the latter. Consistently using its cash as a tool to build significant shareholder value, #Apple 's ongoing share repurchases could be the stock's most critical catalyst. http://cnnmon.ie/1NAkJE5

When a gadget's best feature is its price, you can pretty much guarantee it's a lousy device. But the #OnePlus2  smartphone is a notable exception. The $329 price tag is the single greatest thing about the OnePlus 2, the latest #smartphone  from Chinese startup #OnePlus . It's an absurdly low price for the amount of phone you're getting. The OnePlus 2 ticks all the boxes for a high-end smartphone: It's fast, well-designed, has a good camera, features some neat software tricks, has a beautiful screen and daylong battery life. Few other sub-$500 phones on the market boast all that, let alone phones that cost less than $400. http://cnnmon.ie/1hsSiMd

Interestingly, one of the primary selling points of the #OnHub  is that it looks good. The OnHub has a sleek black body -- kind of like the Echo, Amazon's virtual assistance gadget. Most people don't consider aesthetics when buying a Wi-Fi router. But Google's OnHub was designed to be pretty for a very good reason. #wifi   http://cnnmon.ie/1HUjNDg

#Amazon  CEO Jeff Bezos is under fire for promoting a miserable workplace that promotes backstabbing. #Bezos  has fought back hard against that portrayal. True or not -- or somewhere in between -- there's no denying that whatever Bezos is doing is working. Just some of the measures: Amazon's stock is up 72% this year. It is now the most valuable retailer in the world, surpassing #Walmart  last month. And the company reported a surprise profit last quarter. http://cnnmon.ie/1hKWoyY

And then there was one. #Sprint  announced that it will phase out two-year contracts for its customers by the end of the year. That will leave AT&T as the only nationwide U.S. carrier to offer two-year contracts. #Verizon  abandoned its contract program this week. T-Mobile  stopped more than two years ago. Sprint customers will either have to pay full price for their smartphones upfront, pay off the phone over the course of two years, or lease their phone from Sprint. #ATT   #TMobile    http://cnnmon.ie/1HTY26u

#Microsoft  just can't seem to shake the image that Windows 10 is spying on you. And Microsoft's lack of transparency about Windows 10's privacy isn't doing much to dispel the notion. In the nearly three weeks following Windows 10's release, there have been numerous reports about how much personal information Microsoft collects, and the hurdles to stopping it. Now take a deep breath. There's actually a reasonable explanation for all of this -- it enables some of Windows 10's best and most convenient features. #Windows10    http://cnnmon.ie/1hKfQfx

It's still really good to "be like Mike." Basketball great Michael Jordan makes more money in retirement than most professional athletes do when they're at the top of their game. Jordan's most lucrative deal is with #Nike , which has paid out over $473 million dollars over the course of the contract, which he's had since 1993. A 1991 deal with #Gatorade  that's still in effect today is valued at $18 million and a deal he's had with #Hanes  since 1992 has netted him over $14 million. #MichaelJordan   http://cnnmon.ie/1NvaMp0

If you paid an extra $100 or even $200 for a #smartphone  with more storage, you got ripped off. We quickly fill up those gigabytes on our smartphones with photos, videos, apps, music and all sorts of other cherished personal files and mementos. Constantly deleting those files is a pain, so splurging on extra storage is a bullet many of us have chosen to bite. But smartphone makers pay as little as a sixth of what they charge you for those extra gigabytes of storage. #Apple   #LG   #Samsung   #Motorola   http://cnnmon.ie/1NuIqeP

The misshapen leather. That faded magnetic stripe. #Samsung  wants to make these physical payment problems a thing of the past with Samsung Pay -- and it may have better luck than other companies trying to do the same. That's because Samsung Pay will work almost everywhere. The South Korean electronics titan is launching its own pay-using-your-phone product later this month in Korea, and on September 28 in the United States. Samsung Pay will work not only with tap-to-pay Near Field Communication readers, but also plain old magnetic stripe card readers. #SamsungPay   http://cnnmon.ie/1NulRXw

#OPEC 's strategy to pump like crazy despite collapsing #oil  prices seems to be finally paying off: The U.S. oil industry is showing cracks.
Oil supply from non-OPEC countries is set to slow dramatically next year and slip into its first contraction since 2008, the International Energy Agency said Wednesday in its monthly oil market report. And the #IEA   said the U.S. will be the hardest hit, as more oil producers rethink their priorities and cut production. "While some producers might be successful in lifting output in the short-run, we expect the majority will struggle to sustain higher rates over longer periods due to steep spending curbs," the report said. http://cnnmon.ie/1DMRGdV

Fantasy football season kicks off next month, and #IBM   #Watson   wants to help you manage your team. The supercomputer will lend its brains to Edge Up, a new #app  that will study data, stats and expert analysis for the players on your bench. Edge Up will scour the Web for player information through social media platforms and news stories, and organize its findings in an athlete profile. Within that profile, you'll be able to see Watson's analysis on factors that impact a player's performance -- physical, mental, and circumstantial. The app will show you injury history, how focused a player might be, and game conditions. #fantasyfootball   http://cnnmon.ie/1DMl4Bb

The sudden #devaluation  is the largest in two decades, and comes amid a period of slower economic growth and increased stock market volatility in China. http://cnnmon.ie/1N6njkV
