    Programming note: The Interface will be off Monday for Labor Day. I. The announcements After months of deliberations, Facebook gave its answer to the critics who have called for it to put new restrictions on political advertising.

As a result, it might be harder for candidates to spread misinformation in the final days of the campaign. ...
    Billionaire Reed Hastings likes to boast that the inspiration for Netflix came to him after he was stung with a $40 late fee for a video of the film Apollo 13 he had rented from Blockbuster. Co-founder Marc Randolph begs to differ. It was he who first suggested that there must be a better way of renting films after telling Hastings — then his boss at a California software company — that he relied on a worn video copy of Disney’s Aladdin to get his young daughter to sleep each night. Whatever the truth, the pair agree they’d been determined to mimic Amazon’s success with books — by finding a product that could be ordered online and delivered by mail....

You didn’t need odds to tell you that the sports betting revolution was on, though there was still some debate about just how far it would spread. The genie was out of the bottle, and betting on sports was on the way to becoming a respectable mainstream activity. But no one predicted Michael Jordan would become a bookie.
