07:08 EDTAAPL, MSFTStar Alliance partners Lufthansa, Swiss sign EFB deals with Global Eagle
Global Eagle Entertainment (ENT) announced that Star Alliance partners Lufthansa Airlines (DLAKY) and Swiss International Air Lines selected GEE Navaero electronic flight bag solutions, affirming GEE's leading position in cockpit data integration and EFB mounting systems for Apple (AAPL) iPad and Microsoft (MSFT) Surface devices. Lufthansa, Europe's largest airline and a new GEE Navaero customer, will equip at least 31 new Airbus A320 aircraft with GEE's new power data interface, smart docking stations, and other interfaces for Microsoft Surface tablets that put mission-critical flight data at the fingertips of pilots and ground crews. The GEE Navaero solution meets Lufthansa's requirement for a full gigabit Ethernet data connection aboard its new aircraft. Swiss will utilize GEE Navaero EFB mounts and data integration solutions across more than 70 Airbus (EADSY) short- and long-haul aircraft as it deploys Apple iPads for mission-critical applications and transitions to a fully paperless cockpit. GEE will also provide certification, deployment and support services.
06:34 EDTAAPLPiper's Munster sees mixed reality headset replacing iPhone in 15 years
Recent acquisitions and hires by Apple (AAPL) make it clear the company is working on mixed reality, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster tells investors in a research note. As a starting point, Apple will add virtual reality to the iPhone in the next two years, which should make it easier for third parties to build headsets powered by the device, similar to Samsung's (SSNLF) Gear VR today, Munster writes. He believes Mixed Reality will be a "new computing paradigm" in 10-plus years, allowing the digital world to be "woven into the real world through wearables." The analyst expects Apple to release a mixed reality headset with a 15-plus year goal of replacing the iPhone. Munster has an Overweight rating on Apple with a $172 price target. The iPhone maker closed yesterday up 99c to $95.01.

19:59 EDTFBFrance gives Facebook three months to comply with data collection laws
France's Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertes, or CNIL, issued formal notice to Facebook to comply with the country's Data Protection Act within three months. The agency explained that, after performing on site and online inspections of the company's policies, CNIL discovered several "failures" on the part of Facebook. Specifically, CNIL said the company "collects, without prior information, data concerning the browsing activity of Internet users who do not have a Facebook account... The social network collects data concerning the sexual orientation and the religious and political views without the explicit consent of account holders. In addition, Internet users are not informed on the sign up form with regard to their rights and the processing of their personal data. The website also sets cookies that have an advertising purpose without properly informing and obtaining the consent of Internet users. Facebook compiles all the information it has on account holders to display targeted advertising... The company provides no tools for account holders to prevent such compilation, which thereby violates their fundamental rights and interests, including their right to respect for private life. Facebook transfers personal data to the United States on the basis of Safe Harbor, although the Court of Justice of the European Union declared invalid such transfers in its ruling of October 6, 2015." If Facebook does not comply within the time limit, CNIL noted it will appoint a "rapporteur" who may refer the matter to an agency committee to consider a possible sanction. Reference Link

06:22 EDTFBWall Street view of Yelp soured by higher costs, slowing user growth, WSJ says
Wall Street sentiment towards Yelp (YELP) has soured as the company struggles with rising costs and weakening user growth, Steven Russollilo of the Wall Street Journal's Ahead of the tape says. With the company poised to report Q4 results Monday, Yelp is closer to falling below its $15 IPO price for the first time, which seemed very unlikely a few years ago when its shares were trading above $100, the Journal says. The company has nearly tripled its employee count over the past three years, but generates a lower revenue per employee than multiple tech companies, including Facebook (FB) and Alphabet (GOOG), the report says. In addition, Yelp's niche market is becoming increasingly competitive, with companies like Google diverting traffic to its own listings, the report says. Reference Link
