R.I.P. REPO MAN:
THIS WEEK’S PLAYLIST: From LA punk rock to SF queer punk, the music I feasted on while putting together the Dossier is heavy on the old school indie rock. Oh, to be sure, there are detours and such. Check it out.
DOSSIER UPDATE: So that recently announced security breach at Equifax? Yeah, not the first time. Oh, and their head of IT, uh, not really their field of study so-to-speak. And finally, about those guys who just happened to sell shares in the company before the security breach was allowed? About that…
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG? South Park launch their 21st season with an all out assault on your always listening kitchen friend. Hilarity ensues.
NOT YOUR GRANNIE’S 9 VOLT: Dappered reader Jorma C sent us this story about a new type of organic battery. Science really is pretty amazing.
DOSSIER UPDATE: This very well may be the best part of the Pharma Bro saga. I understand that I am a vengeful dick, so of course it brought me great joy.
NUTS! Turns out, squirrels know some things about which ones are top notch and those that are suitable for consumption but not their first choice. Nuts.
OOPS: Look’s like Amazon’s algorithms might be up to shenanigans. Is this the AI we’ve been promised?
YEAH, WE’RE PRETTY MUCH SCREWED: The bad guys keep reminding us why putting all our eggs in the internet basket of all things is probably not the best idea ever. Also, I had to re-read this story a couple times because I’m not a STEM guy.
MIND BLOWN: This makes me want to revisit so many of my favorite trails. Totally rad.
RETAIL HELL: Amazon just took down one of the biggest brands in America. While that statement is an exaggeration, it isn’t by much. Meanwhile, it seems like they are taking advantage of brick and mortar for one aspect of their business model.
THE ANTI-DYSTOPIA: A new Eden?
MEANWHILE, IN KENYA: Spectacular.
‘MURICA: All eleven of them? I’m not entirely sold on this by the way.
DUCK DICKS: You have been warned.
YOU DON’T SAY: The science behind the new Siri.
At first I was kind of cheesed off that they were remaking this. But I have to admit this looks like mindless fun.
