Big Revolution
Good morning! Today I’m trying a new feature – check at the end of the newsletter. 
I’ve also dropped the ‘big tweet’ just for today. After a thorough search, I decided that no-one had tweeted anything worth me sharing in the past 24 hours. For shame!

Big things you need to know today
- Spotify could be set to launch a low-cost in-car streaming device at an event on 24 April.
- Sri Lankans accuse Facebook of not doing enough to stop its platform being used to stop violence against muslims in the country. Will tomorrow be the first day in weeks not to bring bad news for Facebook? Zuckerberg can but hope.
- Snapchat seems to be relenting on one of the features in its recent, much disliked redesign. TechCrunch reports that a chronological Stories feed has returned for some users.
- Amazon now sells items on its site via more than 70 of its own brand names. Especially you buy clothing through Amazon, you may have bought one of the company’s own products.
Big weekends reads
Blockchain is not only crappy technology but a bad vision for the future Blockchain is not only crappy technology but a bad vision for the future
A really good argument against people who say blockchain is much better than existing ways of moving money or managing property. A real must-read.
Why Mark Zuckerberg’s 14-Year Apology Tour Hasn’t Fixed Facebook
Zeynep Tufekci points out how Facebook’s problematic business model and Zuckerberg’s apologies are as old as the company itself.
I miss Windows Phone
For all its problems, Windows Phone had some good ideas…
A big product to try
Notepin: minimal
I’m going to highlight fun or interesting products on Sundays (only when I have one that’s worth sharing with you).
I was recently contacted by the creator of Notepin, a browser-based note-taking and blogging tool. Definitely worth a play around with. It’s been around for over a year but Osman Ahmed is focused on growing the userbase now. 
It’s worth a play with if you like minimalist, web-based tools. As you can publish your notes, it’s as much a simple publishing tool as is a notepad. There’s a paid-for pro mode with extra features, too.
That’s all for today...
