Facebook: Security & Revelations
As Facebook releases a post explaining Mark Zuckerberg’s comments that Facebook collects data for “security purposes”, Mark’s own security is being scrutinized. The scariest news today, however, comes from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  They discovered that over half of the sponsors of political ads in 2016 (election time, anyone?) either have little or no paper trails.
Things might get worse for Mr. Zuckerberg before they get better.

Memewatch: The Proto-meme?
Memes are a lot older than you think… From Kilroy, to the graffiti at Pompei. Cultures have always used images (or visual wording) to connect with others. However, this 1920’s comic strip could be the first example of a modern format 2-panel meme. We know, we know - It looks fake. But a pretty decent source has also popped up. It looks like the roaring 20’s should be renamed the rofling 20’s.

Tech: Is Samsung's (Not So) Smartphone Actually A Smart Idea?
Samsung has announced that it’s releasing a data-free phone. Think of it like Nokia’s re-released 3310 but with a touchscreen.

If only it was as unbreakable...

Amazon: A Doggo's Dream Job
Our own Lizzie and Ridley have been wondering where their peeps work, well now we know. Amazon has over 6000 dogs “working” at its Seattle headquarters. These dogs are not having a ruff time, we can assure you - with access to treats, cuddles, a doggy deck/park, and their own festival. At leashed Amazon cares about its doggos, because it seems like it doesn’t care about its people.
