Facebook announced even more plans to transform your profile page. In weeks, Facebook will roll out a new feature called the Timeline, which shares your images, videos and activities in an interactive collage. New Facebook apps will also let you share music and movies with friends. In other news, Hewlett-Packard hired Meg Whitman, the former CEO of eBay, to take over as the company’s chief executive. Whitman guided eBay through its start-up stage and was hired for her communication skills. Former CEO Leo Apotheker’s plans to spin off HP’s PC business will remain the company’s strategy. And finally, the FCC has filed and published official net neutrality laws that will go into effect on November 20th. The plan will most likely become sidelined by a bevy of lawsuits from telecomm providers. Regulations still don’t stop mobile providers from throttling connections.
