The European Parliament called Thursday on Brussels to pursue talks with Washington to remove “deficiencies” from a deal to curb government spying on the personal Internet data of EU citizens. Brussels and Washington announced the new “Privacy Shield” deal in February, replacing a previous agreement that was thrown out by the European Court of Justice last year, but has generated mixed reviews since. Top US companies including Facebook and Google in particular are eager to end the legal void as they transfer data from their European subsidiaries to their headquarters in the United States.

Huawei wants Europeans to use its Honor phones, so it's going to let them buy either an Honor 5X or 7 for 60 days with a money-back guarantee. If they decide to return the phone, Huawei will pick it up for free, too. The offer only lasts until June 8th and also only applies to five countries: the UK, Spain, Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands. The UK already requires that companies offer a 14-day return period when selling something remotely.

The Swiss adventurer was able to memorialize his time in the cockpit by using what appears to be an extremely long selfie stick held outside the window of the solar-powered plane. Piccard and Andre Borschberg have been taking turns flying the one-seater airplane, which is solely powered by the sun's energy.
