Users Frustrated by Apple iOS Update
Apple iPhone and iPad users have taken to social media to express their frustration over installing the company's latest software update. Many have resorted to deleting photos, videos and other files in order to free up space for the new version of Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 8, which requires up to 5.8 GB of storage. Apple has also removed apps for its new health software because of a bug. One expert said Apple's updates were often prone to ‘teething problems’.
Some vexed Apple users took to Twitter to express their annoyance, at one point causing the subject to be trending above the Scottish referendum. David Roberts tweeted: "This update would be great... If you didn't have to delete half of the stuff on your phone just to install it." Daniel Zennon took a more humorous approach, tweeting: "So Apple put the U2 album on everybody's phone and then tell them they don't have enough space for the iOS8 upgrade". This is not the first time Apple users have had trouble with iOS updates. In 2012, the iOS6 update caused some users to lose their apps, and others lost photos and messages when updating to iOS7.

Facebook to Introduce New Advertising Platform: Report
Facebook Inc is set to unveil a new advertising platform to improve effectiveness of online ads, the Wall Street Journal reported on 22nd September, citing people with knowledge of the matter. The product is a redesigned version of Atlas Advertiser Suite, an ad management and measurement platform that Facebook bought from Microsoft Corp last year. It is expected to help marketers target Facebook users more effectively by measuring which users have seen, interacted or acted upon ads that appear on Facebook's services and on third-party websites and apps.
The product will also provide a tool for marketers to buy ads to target Facebook users across the Web. Microsoft took on Atlas with its $6.3 billion acquisition of digital ad agency aQuantive in 2007. Unable to make it work for its own purposes, Microsoft wrote off $6.2 billion of the aQuantive deal's value in 2012. The world's No 1 Internet social network, which lags behind market leader Google Inc in US market for online display ads, did not reveal how much it paid for the technology. (Agency)
