Apple fires iPhone X engineer after daughter’s hands-on video goes viral

Recently a video blogger named Brooke Amelia Peterson got a hands on video with her father’s iPhone X, the problem though it led to her father getting fired by Apple! Ouch!

Apple has reportedly dismissed an engineer after his daughter’s iPhone X hands-on video went viral on YouTube. Brooke Amelia Peterson published a vlog earlier this week, which included a trip to the Apple campus to visit her father and see an unreleased iPhone X. Peterson’s video was quickly picked up by sites like 9to5Mac, and it spread even further on YouTube.

Peterson now claims her father has been fired as a result of her video. In a tearful video, Peterson explains her father violated an Apple company rule by allowing her to film the unreleased handset at Apple’s campus. Apple reportedly requested that Peterson remove the video, but it was clearly too late as the content spread further and further.

Antarctica Glaciers are Meltings right before our Eyes

Antarctica Glaciers are Meltings right before our Eyes

The Pine Island glacier and the Thwaites glacier are rapidly shedding their ice into the Amundsen Sea. Check out the source for animated imagery.

Two of the frozen continent’s fastest-moving glaciers are shedding an increasing amount of ice into the Amundsen Sea each year.

The Pine Island and Thwaites glaciers are among the most critical in the world. They are currently holding back ice that, if melted, would raise the world’s oceans by nearly four feet over centuries, an amount that would put many coastal cities underwater.

2,800 JFK Assassination Documents to be Released by National Archives

2,800 JFK Assassination Documents to be Released by National Archives

Earlier today 2,800 JFK Assassination documents were released, apparently there are even more being reviewed for release as well but have been held back for now.

Moments ago, the National Archives released a trove of 2,800 documents that will shed more light on the assassination of John F. Kennedy. According to the Archives, the release includes “FBI, CIA, and other agency documents (both formerly withheld in part and formerly withheld in full) identified by the Assassination Records Review Board as assassination records.” You can find the documents here.

This data dump was meant to include even more documents. But, according to The New York Times, Donald Trump “bowed to protests by the C.I.A. and F.B.I. by withholding thousands of additional papers pending six more months of review.” If those ever see the light of day, we’ll let you know.

Facebook Testing Split News Feed

Facebook Testing Split News Feed

It’s widely known that Facebook tests many different features, layouts and experiences across the platform, one of those major changes is how they are displaying their News Feed which could have consequences for major publishers.

Facebook is testing a major change that would shift non-promoted posts out of its news feed, a move that could be catastrophic for publishers relying on the social network for their audience.

A new system being trialed in six countries including Slovakia, Serbia and Sri Lanka sees almost all non-promoted posts shifted over to a secondary feed, leaving the main feed focused entirely on original content from friends, and adverts.

The change has seen users’ engagement with Facebook pages drop precipitously, from 60% to 80% . If replicated more broadly, such a change would destroy many smaller publishers, as well as larger ones with an outsized reliance on social media referrals for visitors.
