Is A Biased Net To Come?
The US Federal Communications Commission may vote to repeal the Obama-era Net Neutrality agreement that forced American internet providers to treat all internet traffic alike. Unfortunately, when the FCC will vote on this issue December 14th, the agreement is expected to be repealed, leaving providers like AT&T and Verizon to completely control digital media access in the country.
For any of our buddies south of the border, you've gotta fight this! It's not in the best interest of anyone but the internet providers.

Digital Heist Shakes Faith In Cryptocurrency
Cryptocurrency project Tether announced that the equivalent of nearly $31 million USDT was stolen from the Tether Treasury. The company said that they are hoping to release more Omni Core software to lock up the tokens that were stolen, but that they will not be reimbursing the tokens to those that were stolen from.

Designer Trash Bags: Grunge Revival, Or Just Really Stupid?
First, Balenciaga made a version of the 99-cent Ikea bag. Then Supreme made a $1,000 brick. And now, Spanish retailer BIIS is making leather trash bags. The leather sack comes in three sizes, ranging from $258 - $422, sold on their website.  
The bag in its natural habitat. Sure it's trash, but it's *designer* trash.
