Slate’s Incorrect Claim That Apple Is Going to Share Face ID Data With Third Parties — Pixel Envy 

Fun fact: that Animoji link goes to another Slate article with the title “Three reasons why Apple’s iPhone X animojis are worrisome.” Those three reasons are: they are so good that users will be encouraged to use them! in public! with audio! and that can be annoying; that they are so good that they will become a selling tool for the iPhone X; and that the author gets confused about the difference between the Face ID feature and iOS’ ARKit APIs. A distinction which, as it turns out, Bonnington buries in her ostensibly panic-inducing article

Slate is a bad publication and this is shameful. If you think their articles are good, consider where they draw their line for investigative reporting versus click-bait. My guess is that every article they publish has similarly bad research behind it.

Why Harvey Weinstein is disgraced but Donald Trump is president - Vox 

This is, perhaps, the depressing lesson of the Weinstein and Trump stories. The allegations are similar. The evidence is similar. But power still protects, and while Weinstein had lost enough power to imperil his protection, Trump has only amassed more.

The correct answer to why anyone still supports the president of racism and wealth is because they are bigots. Try that with every article on the subject. It always works. It’s the spiritual successor the the fortune cookie “in bed” punchline.
