Tech Bytes

Facebook is helping people not confuse satire with reality. The new labels will say “public official” “fan page” or “satire page.”They’re aimed at giving users a better understanding of where information is coming from.

Expedia is launching a new tool that provides the most up-to-date information on COVID -19 related restrictions. Travelers can find out if quarantines are required at their destination and if they’ll need to show proof of vaccination or if they’ll need to be tested for COVID-19.

Best Buy is trying out a new paid membership that includes unlimited, round the clock tech support. “Best Buy beta” also offers numerous other benefits, all for $200 per year. 

It’s being tested in Iowa, Pennsylvania and Oklahoma right now, and expands to other states this month.
