Efficiency is everything nowadays, but people are notoriously wasteful when it comes to time, effort, and resources. Seriously, how many times has your productivity stopped dead in its tracks after something as simple as checking a notification on your phone? A 30-second glance can easily become a wasted 30-minute scrolling session

That's exactly why project managers are paid the big money; they keep you and everyone else on your team on track and ensure things run like a well-oiled machine. They're often the difference between a successful business and a struggling one, making them the unsung heroes of practically every industry. Read more...

The last-minute Facebook political ad ban could end up suppressing votes

The last-minute Facebook political ad ban could end up suppressing votes

Facebook's latest test balloon has popped.

On Friday, Bloomberg reported that Facebook is considering a blackout of political ads in the "days" before the November 2020 election. That alarmed democratic campaign staff and experts, who warned that it could lead to voter suppression.

"Under this proposal the President could use organic posts to suppress voting by mail (as he did today), but Democrats could not run ads encouraging people to return their mail ballots," Rob Flaherty, the digital director for Joe Biden's presidential campaign, tweeted.

Political operatives think the report might be what's known as a "test balloon" in the media and political worlds, which is when an organization leaks an idea it is "considering" to either garner positive press, or gauge reaction.  Read more...

Police use facial-recognition tech to arrest another innocent man

Police use facial-recognition tech to arrest another innocent man

Let's say it together: Facial-recognition technology is a dangerous, biased mess

We are reminded of this obvious fact again with the news Friday that an innocent man, despite not looking like the perpetrator at all, was arrested last year after being falsely identified by faulty facial-recognition tech.

This is the second known case of facial recognition software directly leading to the arrest of an innocent man. It's something privacy advocates fear will be a growing trend unless drastic action is taken to stop this technology in its tracks. 

Michael Oliver, then 25, was charged with a felony for supposedly grabbing a phone from a car passenger and throwing it, reports the Detroit Free Press. Except, of course, it wasn't Oliver. With facial-recognition technology's demonstrated bias when it comes to identifying the faces of Black people (and BIPOC in general, and women, and old people, and young people...) it should come as no surprise that both Oliver and the actual phone-grabber are both Black.  Read more...

A copy of Super Mario Bros. for the original Nintendo just sold for a record $114,000

A copy of Super Mario Bros. for the original Nintendo just sold for a record $114,000

Video games are getting pretty expensive. The average price of a new release for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Sony Playstation is around $60. Throw in some in-game microtransaction purchases and you could be looking at a whole lot more.

But, how much is too much? Say, $114,000? 

Well, not for someone, apparently. And they spent that money on Super Mario Bros. for the original Nintendo Entertainment System.

The game, originally released in 1985, was sold on Friday in an auction held by major international auction house Heritage Auctions. The winning bid was first noticed by video game journalist Chris Kohler and highlighted by The Verge. The winner of the auction is currently unknown. Read more...

Unfounded conspiracy theory accuses Wayfair of bonkers, Pizzagate-level trafficking ring

Unfounded conspiracy theory accuses Wayfair of bonkers, Pizzagate-level trafficking ring

It wasn't totally odd, at face value, that furniture site Wayfair was trending on Twitter on Friday. Maybe the retailer was having a giant sale?

Unfortunately, Wayfair elbowed its way into the trending column with tens of thousands of tweets because of a much stranger situation.

It boils down to this: Conspiracy theorists were purporting that the site — or third-party sellers on the site — were secretly part of a child trafficking ring. This theory appears to have started, as many do, on Reddit's r/conspiracy subreddit. 

Before we proceed, there is no hard evidence to support that this far-fetched theory is even remotely true. Also, child trafficking is a horrific crime and conspiracy theories like this one turn a dangerous issue into a joke, distracting from the real reasons child trafficking flourishes. Read more...

Morphe cuts ties with Jeffree Star after backlash

Morphe announced that it's cutting ties with Jeffree Star after weeks of backlash following an explosive video by makeup vlogger Tati Westbrook. 

"Today we've made the decision to cease all commercial activity related to Jeffree Star and affiliated products," the cosmetics brand tweeted on Friday. "We expect this to conclude within the coming weeks. As we look to the future, we will continue to share updates on what lies ahead for the Morphe brand." 

Despite claims by Westbrook, Star is neither an owner nor investor in Morphe. 

Today we’ve made the decision to cease all commercial activity related to Jeffree Star and affiliated products. We expect this to conclude within the coming weeks. As we look to the future, we will continue to share updates on what lies ahead for the Morphe brand.

Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip 5G is basically confirmed in leaked video

It's been the week of leaks for Samsung — there was the Note 20 Ultra, the Galaxy Tab S7+, these weird Samsung Galaxy earbuds, and now the Galaxy Z Flip 5G. The promotional video, which was most likely reserved for the Unpacked 2020 event in August, was leaked for all to enjoy.

Well-known leaker Max Weinbach posted the video on Twitter, giving us a closer look at the latest version of the foldable phone.

Judging by the video, it looks like the 5G variant will  be offered in two colors — "Mystic Bronze" (to match the Note 20 Ultra) and a dark gray color. The standard Z Flip is available in Mirror Purple, Mirror Black, and Mirror Gold. Read more...
