Doggy's Not Dead (Thankfully)
Today’s meme of the day is freshly imported from Japan. You know the times when your pet is lying just a little bit too still? You go over to check on them and it turns out they were just asleep. Phew! This trend (started by @RP_ktyn) brings you the worrying sleep positions of Japanese pets. Enjoy!
Crisis over.

Move Over Net Neutrality
By now, you all know how we (and like, 99% of the population) feel about net neutrality. But what about device neutrality? That’s what ARCEP (basically the French Version of the FCC) president Sébastien Soriano wants to bring into law. Imagine a world where you’re not tied down to the App Store or Play Store just because Google & Apple can’t get along. He states that we spend a lot of time “cleaning pipes” and not “faucets”. We’d love to TAP into this idea!
We're with you, Sébastien!
We're with you, Sébastien!
Facebook's Flawed Algorithms
If anybody knows about boosting repetitive content and irritating people, it’s BuzzFeed. A BuzzFeed News Reporter (lol) posted a basic video of her apartment to annoy family and friends.

We hate to admit it, but this article does a decent job of showing the vicious cycle of Facebook’s algorithms.

Fashion First, Safety Second.
South Korean Olympic gold medalist, Yun Sung-bin is going viral. Not for the medal, though. His epic choice of helmet has caught Twitter by storm. Rather than settle for an AR Iron Man headset, he had his own helmet modelled after the superhero. He’s not the only one with custom headgear though.
Even the man himself is impressed.

LinkedIn, Microsoft To Write Your Resume?
LinkedIn (and parent company, Microsoft) are entering the resume writing game… sort of. A new assistant will pull information from LinkedIn when you’re writing your flashy new resume. Haven’t they ever heard of copy and paste?
They should make an assistant that stops this from being a thing.
