Happy Saturday y'all! Below, I have rounded up some things for you to think about this weekend:
1. Another week, another update on Facebook's Cambridge Analytica scandal. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before Congress this week, apologizing and claiming that the company made a "big mistake". You can now click this link (while signed into your Facebook account) to see if your data was shared with the political consulting firm.
2. Ride-sharing app Uber purchased Jump, a dockless bike-sharing app. It's good to see that bike-sharing is becoming more and more common, because that means it'll be a whole lot easier to get around without needing to own a car or bike of your own.
3. Earlier this week, Apple announced that it is now powered by 100% renewable energy worldwide. That means the company's retail stores, offices, data centers, and more are powered by clean energy. It took a lot of investments in solar arrays, wind farms, and other energy storage technologies to get to this point, and I feel like Apple should be commended. Let's hope that other companies will follow suit—and soon.
That's all for this week's edition of Weekend Thoughts. Until next week, keep thinking wilder.
