This week, Apple has a (not so) secret team looking at satellites to bring data to mobile devices, Snopes is launching a membership program to upgrade its site and expand its staff, and Amazons Alexa is popular but not terribly profitable. Also this week, MeWe launches premium features, Forbes accepts payments via Ethereum cryptocurrency for its articles, and Hulu is offering a new ad format to reward binge watching.
