After losing over 800,000 subscribers in the third quarter last year, Netflix is finally rebounding. The company made up for much of the loss, adding over 600,000 subscribers in the fourth quarter. Netflix’s stock went up as high as 13% following its earnings report. In other news, Google launched its Crisis Response project that adds emergency alert information to Google Maps. You can now search for extreme weather, public safety or earthquake alert information specific to your location. Google is partnering with several government agencies to provide the up-to-date advisories. And finally, once you give a website your information, it’s sometimes difficult to know where it lives online. New privacy laws proposed by the European Commission looks to change that. If the rules are approved, users can request that online services like Facebook and Google delete their information.
