IN THE NEWS: YOU "LIKE" THIS -- FACEBOOK CHANGES ON THE WAY
NEW YORK (AP) -- It's happened to all of us on Facebook: someone says a loved one is ill or that they're going through some other kind of tough time. You want to express empathy -- but you don't want to give the wrong idea by clicking the "Like" button. Facebook is giving us more options -- though not just yet. The social networking site is adding buttons that let you click "Love," "Angry," "Haha," or "Sad," "Yay" or "Wow." The new buttons won't be ready for the clicking right away -- unless you live in Ireland or Spain. Those two nations get those new options starting today.

IN THE NEWS: HARRY POTTER BOOKS
NEW YORK (AP) -- Harry Potter is getting a makeover. And no, that doesn't mean he's about to ditch the round wire-rimmed glasses. The books featuring the boy wizard are entering the modern age -- thanks to a facelift that will make them work with Apple devices. The enhanced version of the e-books will feature hundreds of new illustrations -- more than half of the animated or interactive. The new versions of the Potter books are exclusive to Apple's iBooks Store and require an Apple mobile device or a Mac computer to read.
