The Facebook Crisis in India Might Be the Worst Facebook Crisis of All

blank

Thanks to whistleblower Frances Haugen’s testimony and the news articles based on documents she leaked, the public has gained an alarming new perspective on how Facebook ignored, downplayed, or failed to adequately address harassment, mis- and disinformation, and incitements to violence on its platform in several major countries. The documents, which CNN claims could be “the biggest crisis” in Facebook’s history, have revealed just how the network became an incubator of hate and terrorism from the U.S. to Ethiopia. Yet the most shocking revelations concern the nation that serves as the app’s biggest user base: India, the world’s largest backsliding democracy.

Donald Trump Jr. was selling shirts that said “GUNS DON’T KILL PEOPLE ALEC BALDWIN KILLS PEOPLE” in his online merch store on Monday, although it appears the listing has since been removed.

The shirts refer to an accident that happened last week on the set of the movie Rust. Baldwin, a lead actor in the film, fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injured the film’s director with a prop gun he was told only had blanks inside.

The accident is still under investigation and Baldwin is cooperating with law enforcement.

Apple AirPods (2021) review | Engadget

blank

When you consider 2019’s second-generation AirPods were a modest update rather than a complete overhaul, Apple was way overdue for an all-new model. With this year’s third-gen version, the company has given us just that. The 2021 AirPods have a new design, complete with handy features from the company’s more expensive earbud and headphone models. The stick-bud look is still with us, and the overall fit will remain polarizing, but Apple has nonetheless massively improved its “regular” AirPods in nearly every way.
