Facebook made a huge overhaul to your news feed and has received an unsurprising amount of negative feedback. The home page now has a Twitter-like instant feed in the top right corner and an algorithm decides which news is the most important to you. Despite the outrage, don’t expect Facebook to lose many users. In other news, Amazon’s Kindle now lets you check out e-books from your local library. When logged in to Amazon, access your library’s website, search through it’s e-book collection and click “Get for Kindle.” Not sure which libraries have e-books? searches all of them for you. And finally, Google’s Eric Schmidt testified before a Senate panel that accuses the company’s search engine of potentially favoring its own content. Schmidt insisted that Google is the most transparent of search companies and supports a competitive open Internet.
