If you're still looking for activities to fill your Thanksgiving weekend, Google might be able to help. The tech giant has announced the Play Store's Cyber Week deals for 2018, which include charging only 99 cents for any of its movie rentals on Turkey Day itself. If you'd rather watch shows, you can also get discounts on major titles such as Game of Thrones and American Horror Story.
Right now the solutions for walking through large virtual reality environments are quite limited. Google, however, might have a better solution -- although we're not sure if we'd call it elegant. The company has applied for a patent on VR shoes (really, roller skates) that would let you walk anywhere in VR without bumping into a very real wall.

Google recently launched a Siri Shortcut that lets you talk to Google Assistant through Siri on your iPhone. It's silly, requiring you to say "Hey Siri, OK Google," to bring up Google, but it works. Here's how to use Siri to talk to Google on your iPhone.
Google poured resources into its cloud unit during Diane Greene's three-year run at the helm, but the company has still struggled against Amazon and Microsoft.

With the uptake of social media advertising on the rise, Twitter (TWTR) is moving to help brands better connect with social media audiences. The company has recently created a new post, global director of culture and community, and has appointed God-is Rivera to the role.

Twitter (TWTR) is working to diversify its business as a way to reduce its reliance on advertising expenditures. Twitter’s non-advertising revenue rose 25% YoY to $108 million in the third quarter, making up 14% of the company’s total revenue. Non-advertising operations contributed 15.5% of revenue in the previous quarter and 14.7% of total revenue a year earlier.
Shares of Apple Inc. rallied 1.3% in premarket trade Wednesday, bouncing from the previous session's tumble that kicked off what many chart watchers define as a bear market. The stock fell 4.8% Tuesday, to close 23.7% below its Oct. 3 record close of $232.07. Many on Wall Street define a bear market as a decline of 20% or more from a bull-market high. The new bear market started Tuesday is the first since it came out of the last bear market on Aug. 9, 2016. The other FAANG stocks, which were already in bear markets, were also bouncing ahead of the open. Shares of Facebook Inc. rose 1.5%, Amazon.com Inc. surged 2.6%, Netflix Inc. climbed 3.0% and Google parent Alphabet Inc. gained 1.2%. The bounces come as the futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 171 points. DataTrek Research previous periods since 2010 in which the large-capitalization technology sector suffered worse-than 10% 90-day rolling declines suggests the weakness could last a little longer, before a recovery begins. "The answer: No quick recovery, but not much more damage either," wrote DataTrek Co-Founder Nicholas Colas in a note to clients.

This breaking of ranks marks a pivotal moment in Big Tech’s history, according to Leslie Berlin, the author of Troublemakers: Silicon Valley’s Coming of Age.
Facebook (FB) has teamed up with Microsoft (MSFT) to cooperate more closely in contributing to the development of AI solutions. Specifically, Microsoft is throwing its weight behind Facebook’s open-source AI software, PyTorch, according to a CNBC report.
