Business Briefs: Facebook, Uber, internet on planes

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will answer questions from House members today. On Tuesday, he spent five hours in the hot seat, getting grilled about the Cambridge Analytica data scandal. Zuckerberg apologized for what happened, and said Facebook will focus on how it treats its users. Most of the questions centered around Facebook's inaccessible terms of service. Investors thought Zuckerberg did OK. Shares popped 4.5 percent Tuesday, according to Cheddar.

Uber's app is getting a makeover. The company is rolling out a redesigned app to help drivers better calculate how much they're making. It will also have better internet connectivity - if a driver loses internet, the data will update once the connection is restored.

You may soon have better access to the internet on planes. Google is reportedly in the early stages of buying Nokia's airborne broadband system to give passengers faster in-flight Wi-Fi. It would also allow Google to promote its entertainment services like YouTube and play music.
