Welcome to 60 Sec Tech - one minute on what you need to know in technology. Used to the kind of ads you see on Facebook? Get ready to see more - in video format. The company has stated that its engineers are rolling out new video advertisements, though the change won’t be apparent to all users at first.  But the new “Donate” feature is already up and running. This feature allows users to donate to causes and charities directly through Facebook posts, eliminating external charity links. Facebook will retain the credit card and billing information however, and it’s unclear how the company may use that info. And finally, Amazon is offering interest-free financing on its Kindle Fire HDX tablet. You can get an 8.9 inch version for $94.75, making the initial purchase much cheaper than the Fire’s rivals. BUT, Amazon has reserved the right to cripple the tablet of any customers who skip out on payments. That wraps it up. Join us next time for 60 Sec Tech.
