Lory Gil and Mikah Sargent are the stars of the show this week with a variety of different tech stories. First, Instagram is making it possible to share your stories with only your closest friends. They've also improved the accessibility of the platform by allowing users to provide text descriptions of the images they post. This is similar to a feature Twitter has previously implemented to benefit the visually impaired.
There's huge news in the re-kindled (pun not intended) relationship between Amazon and Apple. Available later this December, Echo devices will support Apple Music.
In less happy news, Marriott says records from 500 million Starwood guests were stolen in a massive data breach. The extent of the information leaked in the breach is still being determined.
Apple CEO Tim Cook is giving the keynote address at the Anti-Defamation League's anti-Semitism and anti-hate summit in New York on December 3rd.
