Top Facebook exec says people risk "overreacting to the bad" aspects of social media. The former UK Deputy Prime Minister said the company has been made a scapegoat for the rise of nationalist populism. He pushed back against the "tech lash," a wave of growing scrutiny of the tech giants, in a speech in Berlin on Monday. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Top Facebook executive and former British politician Nick Clegg has argued that people are at risk of "overreacting to the bad" aspects of social media and damaging its positive potential as a result. In a speech in Berlin on Monday evening , the former UK Deputy Prime Minister and ex-Liberal Democrat leader pushed back against the "tech lash" — a wave of growing scrutiny of giant technology companies like Facebook, and increasing calls for oversight or even antitrust action against them. Facebook has been battered by two years of scandals — from political research firm Cambridge Analytica's misappropriation of tens of millions of users' data to the social network's role in spreading hate speech in Myanmar.

Figuring out how to take live photos on your iPhone can be confusing, as it's hidden behind a very tiny icon. The Live Photo option native to iOS allows you to take pictures that "come alive when you touch them" — in other words, photos that also record a second or two of motion after you press the shutter button. Live Photos offers three different shooting modes: loop, bounce, and long exposure. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories . Technology has come a long way over the past couple of decades. All but gone are the days of disposable cameras, Polaroids, or even point-and-shoot models — these days, most of us just whip out our phones and preserve a memory in photo form with the tap of a button. Digital photography offers plenty of advantages over its analog equivalents, and the iPhone takes things up another notch with its Live Photo option. Live photos allow you to capture a moment in time in a whole new way. Think of it as making a (very short) GIF image: the iPhone begins recording 1.5 seconds before and after you snap the pic, offering up a sort of living portrait rather than a straightforward 2D image.

iPhones are precisely made machines, so in the process of figuring out how to fix a cracked iPhone screen yourself, you run the risk of doing even more damage. That's why you should usually let a professional look at it. Your standard iPhone warranty doesn't cover accidental damage to the screen, so if your iPhone screen is cracked, you'll be paying for the repair one way or another. Using a screen repair business not officially affiliated with Apple may be cheaper, but can also void your iPhone warranty, so think carefully before handing it over to a repair store. iPhone screens are made of glass, and when broken can create dangerous shards and sharp edges, so don't put off repairing a broken screen.

Recently, I was jogging from my car to a pizza shop to pick up dinner for the family, carrying my keys and iPhone in one hand, while digging through my wallet for cash with the other, not being careful with either. In the midst of jostling the items about, my venerable iPhone 6 took a dive and hit the edge of the curb screen-first.

If you've recently switched what browser you use on your Mac , knowing how to change your "default browser" will be useful. Apple Macs come with Safari pre-loaded as the default browser, meaning that Safari will open automatically when you click on certain links. Because of compatibility issues with some websites, using other browsers instead of Safari may be optimal. You can change the default browser in your Mac's general preferences, or by scrolling through options in an alternative browser. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories . Apple Macs come with Apple's web browser Safari built in as the "default browser." This means that Safari will open automatically when you click certain links, even if you don't want it to. While Safari is a fast web browser and works well for most web needs, there are drawbacks to using it. One of these drawbacks is that for some websites, other browsers can be faster — for example, Google Apps work better in Google's own browser, Chrome. Other websites might not work with Safari at all.

Facebook and Apple's cold war continued on Monday. Nick Clegg, Facebook's head of global affairs and a top lieutenant to CEO Mark Zuckerberg , suggested that the company is not an "exclusive club" like Apple. Clegg was parading Facebook's mission as a force for good in connecting the world at a time when it is facing unprecedented regulatory scrutiny. It is the latest strike in a long-running duel between Facebook and Apple after the Cambridge Analytica data breach became global news in March 2018. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Facebook has launched its latest strike on Apple in a war of words that has dragged on for more than 15 months. The two companies have been repeatedly dueling over privacy and their differing business models since the catastrophic Cambridge Analytica data breach became global news in March 2018. Although they rarely, if ever, mention each other by name, the subtext of the attacks is often in plain sight, and the firms have done little to distance themselves from the press slanging match.

Credit Suisse just lowered its S&P 500 earnings outlook for the second time this year due to a host of macroeconomic and company-specific factors weighing on the market. The firm's chief US equity strategist, Jonathan Golub, maintained a bullish year-end price target. Visit Markets Insider's homepage for more stories . The same worries keep eating at Jonathan Golub. The chief US equity strategist for Credit Suisse on Monday lowered his corporate earnings estimates for the second time this year. The reasoning for his curbed expectations sounds a lot like what pushed him to cut his estimates back in March, and before that, last September. It was falling oil prices , along with softening outlooks at big tech companies like Apple, that led Golub to trim his 2019 and 2020 S&P 500 earnings-per-share forecasts earlier this year. "Since then, oil prices have declined further, economic indicators (such as global PMIs ) have moderated, and the outlook for select TECH+ names (including Micron , Intel , Facebook and Alphabet ) has weakened," he wrote in a note to clients on Monday.

It would be the largest laptop Apple sells, marking the first time in eight years the company has released a laptop with a screen bigger than 15 inches.
