Looking to keep on top of the latest headlines in small business, innovation and tech? Check out our Weekly News recaps posted every Friday morning -- a quick summary designed to keep you current.

Toymaker VTech announced that a security breach exposed the personal information for more than 6 million children, including customer names, birth dates and photos of children. The anonymous hacker responsible reportedly had a special purpose in mind. 

On the eve of Cyber Monday, Amazon gave shoppers a glimpse of its new commercial drone. But don't expect its latest unmanned aircrafts to deliver your holiday wishlist just yet. The e-commerce giant has yet to say on when these drone models will be in service. 

And while most parents announce the birth of their kids by revealing the child's name, Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Dr. Priscilla Chan went a step further. The pair announced the birth of their daughter Max in an open letter that also revealed their pledge to donate 99% of their Facebook shares to philanthropic causes throughout their lifetime. At present, those shares have a current value of about $45 billion, according to Zuckerberg's Facebook announcement.
