Apple, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Tech Innovations, This is what we discuss on TechReact every week.

This Week at TechReact:

1 This week, Twitter changed its “block” feature so that people who were blocked by users could once again interact with the users who had blocked them. After intense backlash from users — including the lively #RestoreTheBlock hashtag — Twitter reverted the change, saying it “never want[ed] to introduce features at the cost of users feeling less safe.”http://www.wired.com/opinion/2013/12/twitter-blocking-policy/

2 The News Feed is about to get a lot more lively. Just days after pushing its auto-play feature for videos to all mobile users, today we spotted auto-playing videos on Facebook.com, and the company confirms to me “we’re continuing a wider rollout of in-line video on web”. Once this rollout is complete, the stage will be set for the introduction of more flashy video ads. Autoplay video in Facebook news feed. http://techcrunch.com/2013/12/11/facebook-autoplay-video/

3 Whether you’re crunching big data or tracking your family budget, you don’t want to waste time waiting for files to load or re-doing edits that were lost because your Internet connection dropped. You can now get more done byswitching to the new version of Google Sheets. It’s faster, supports larger spreadsheets, has a number of new features, and works offline.http://googledrive.blogspot.com/2013/12/newsheets.html
