5 details you shouldn't give Facebook
By Kim Komando, FOX News
The whole point of Facebook is to share your life with other people. You probably have more than a few friends who fall into the over-sharing category. But don’t snicker. You may be one, too, and not even know it. Here are five personal tidbits Facebook asks you to share that you’re much better off keeping to yourself.
How to fly cross-country without using airports
By Thom Patterson, CNN
It's no secret that crowded airports can be a hassle and a giant time-suck for cross-country travelers. Soon, a workaround may be available for corporations and the ultra-rich.

In New Amazon Prime Program, Not All Goods Ship for Free
By Greg Bensinger, The Wall Street Journal
Beware Amazon Prime members: All blenders are not created equal. A Cuisinart warehoused in California may no longer qualify for no-fee shipping to a Prime member in Vermont. That’s the idea behind a new program Amazon is testing with some independent merchants. The program, nicknamed Ship by Region, lets certain sellers designate where they’re willing to ship goods at no additional cost to Prime members. The merchants may limit how far they will ship some items – large-screen televisions, for example – for free under the $99 Prime program. If a Prime customer is outside that region, shipping will cost extra.

By David Goldman, CNN Money
You know that panicked feeling when you've got a zillion browser tabs open, and one of them starts blaring music? Google is about to put an end to that -- the single most annoying Web browsing feature.

You will have to click on a tab to load a video or streaming media file -- even if it is set to auto-play.
Call me 'ze,' not 'he': University wants everyone to use 'gender inclusive' pronouns
By Todd Starnes, FOX News
Educators in the Volunteer State are very concerned that students might be offended by the usage of traditional pronouns like she, he, him and hers, according to a document from the University of Tennessee – Knoxville’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion. “With the new semester beginning and an influx of new students on campus, it is important to participate in making our campus welcoming and inclusive for all,” wrote Donna Braquet in a posting on the university’s website. “One way to do that is to use a student’s chosen name and their correct pronouns.”
