The popular photo-sharing service, Instagram, changed its service on Monday. And the changes are not welcomed. The changes will let advertisers in Facebook’s ad network use data and information that users have shared on Instagram, and will also give Instagram and Facebook the right to use its users’ photographs and identity in advertisements. Over the course of the next few days you’ll be able to view your profile, or anyone else’s, simply by navigating to instagram.com/[username]. January 16 is the date when the changes will be applied.

Hailing a taxi on a New York street is going high-tech — with a smartphone application.
So far, about 1,000 of the city’s more than 13,000 yellow cab drivers have downloaded the app.
When a hailing icon pops up, the driver sees the passenger’s location.
Drivers will be charged $14.95 a month, or $9.95 on a six-month subscription — after several promotional, cost-free months.
The passenger app is free of charge.

Apple did that because it was determined to own an increasingly critical feature of its devices, but the move seemed premature, as flaws in the company’s new service led to unusual public embarrassment.
