    Paula Deen fans lash out against Wal-Mart
    Paula Deen supporters lashed out on Facebook and Twitter against the companies that terminated partnerships with the southern cooking star in light of her racially insensitive remarks. The Facebook pages of Wal-Mart (WMT, Fortune 500), Caesars (CZR, Fortune 500), Home Depot (HD, Fortune 500), Smithfield (SFD, Fortune 500), Sears (SHLD, Fortune 500), Target (TGT, Fortune 500) and The Food Network have been plastered with angry comments in support of Deen. Each of the pages had dozens -- and in some cases hundreds -- of Deen-related comments, overwhelming the companies' social conversation.

    The government is cracking down on lenders that have taken advantage of tens of thousands military members. In one action announced Thursday, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau said it has ordered U.S. Bank (USB, Fortune 500) and another company, Dealers' Financial Services, to refund a combined $6.5 million to more than 50,000 active duty service members to make up for failing to disclose fees and other costs on auto loans.

    Facebook engineers explained on Thursday that the company will begin asking regular users of the company's Android app to participate in a beta testing program to identify bugs before they hit the generally available version. The company figures this will improve the overall experience of Facebook on Android, which is used by millions of users worldwide but remains a challenging platform to develop for.

    Starbucks baristas must share some tips
    The question over who gets to keep the tips at Starbucks finally has an answer. Late Wednesday, New York's top court upheld the coffee chain's policy that tips be shared between baristas and shift supervisors, but assistant managers are still not eligible. The New York Court of Appeals had been asked last month to rule on two lawsuits addressing how New York labor law applied to the tips dropped in the plexiglass box at the counter of Starbucks coffee bars.
