On Wednesday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will answer questions from Congress about the company’s latest venture into blockchain and cryptocurrency, Libra.

The hearing comes after months of heated debates from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle who are concerned about whether Facebook should create its own global currency. The head of the Libra Project, David Marcus, made the case for Libra in front of Congress earlier this year, but it wasn’t enough for lawmakers. Now, Zuckerberg will sit in front of members of the House Financial Services Committee in an attempt to quell their concerns about the project.

The hearing is being streamed on the House Financial Services Committee’s YouTube channel and C-SPAN.

Samsung teases new Exynos chipset, promises cutting-edge processor

Samsung tweeted a teaser for the next Exynos chipset. It didn’t reveal too much, but those “new frontier” and “cutting-edge processor” labels hint at a new flagship chip.

Earlier this year, Samsung Foundry completed development of 5nm EUV chips, which are expected in 2020. According to the company, those promise 25% better silicone density, 20% lower power consumption or 10% higher performance at the same power draw.

As you can imagine, rumors are swirling that the Galaxy S11 will launch with a 5nm chipset – the new Exynos or the next Snapdragon flagship. Qualcomm is expected to go with TSMC for the next Snapdragon, as TSMC is also ready to deliver 5nm chips in 2020.

The Samsung Tech Day 2019 conference starts today with the keynote scheduled for a few hours from now. This will be a perfect venue to announce a new chipset. Note that here are rumors that Samsung will unveil the Exynos 9630 – a mid-range chipset – so we may have to wait a while longer before we see the Galaxy S11 chipset.

On October 22nd, some of Silicon Valley’s biggest critics introduced a bill that’s meant to undercut social media monopolies. The Augmenting Compatibility and Competition by Enabling Service Switching (ACCESS) Act is designed to make “large communications platforms” loosen their hold on user data. It builds on regulations that have already been implemented in Europe, and it speaks to serious concerns about online walled gardens.

But the ACCESS Act doesn’t lay out precisely how these rules might change our relationship with companies like Twitter and Facebook. Some of its details are still up in the air. But based on what we know, here’s why the bill matters and why it’s not a surefire solution for opening up the internet.

Huawei sells 200 million smartphones in 2019, two months faster than 2018

Huawei might have had a tough year and uncertain future ahead, but the company today reported some good news – it sold 200 million smartphones since the beginning of 2019. The impressive milestone was reached 64 days faster than in 2018, despite being a hostage in the negotiations between the United States and China.

The Chinese company already reported that the P30 lineup, announced in March, and the Mate 20 series that debuted last year have been outsold their predecessors.

Another reason the 200 million mark shouldn’t be a surprise is how steady Huawei is on the top position at its domestic market, where sales were also driven by a patriotic wave – users chose the maker to support it through the tough times.
