Facebook Privacy, Microsoft Media Spend, Birth of Nintendo

Close of Business is a new video series that we're trying out. The idea is simple: at 5 p.m. (or thereabouts), we post a quick video summarizing the top three news stories of the day -- and give you one new Twitter or Tumblr to follow. Some of them we'll have written about; others will just be what people were talking about on the Internet.

Your Twitter account of the day: @N_E_I, the Nuclear Energy Institute, which I think provides timely and surprisingly balanced perspective on energy news.

Important links mentioned in this video:

October 18, 1985: Nintendo Entertainment System Launches [Wired]
