Thanks to a surge in Facebook stock, Mark Zuckerberg is now worth $81.6 billion.

With the new found welath, he has overtaken Warren Buffett to become the world’s third-richest person with about $373 million more than Buffett.

Zuckerberg just passed Buffett on Friday, when Facebook shares climbed 2.4%.

Netflix is phasing out user-submitted reviews over the next two months.

Netflix will stop accepting user reviews by the end of the month, then by mid-August, it will delete all reviews customers have submitted.

Ultimately, Netflix’s decision to eliminate user reviews likely boiled down to one thing: They probably have not driven people to watch more content on the service. The reviews feature on Netflix has allowed viewers to rate a TV show or movie using a five-star scale.

Netflix will instead go to a “thumb” based system. They say they deliver more accurate recommendations and they’re easier for people to understand. The company said that in testing, it saw a 200% increase in ratings by users with the thumbs-up/thumbs-down system.

Travis Pastrana replicated three of Evel Knievel’s most famous motorcycle jumps in Las Vegas last night. He actually did better than Evel on each one and he landed them all.

On the first jump he cleared 52 cars and went 143 feet in the air.

On his second jump, Travis Pastrana cleared 16 Greyhound buses, a distance of 192 feet.

For his last jump, Travis jumped over the Caesar’s Palace fountain, the jump that Evel Knievel tried and missed.
