On top of Macy’s reporting disappointing profits Wednesday, there’s news that retail sales last month were flat. More on that. Plus, we’ll talk about Facebook luring publishing companies into putting their content directly onto the social media site. And Uber has a finance program for potential drivers with bad credit. Getting more drivers on the road means more money for Uber. But those loans can have high interest rates and some drivers are struggling to make the payments.
