Facebook confirms: Donald trumped Hillary on the social network during 2016 election

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND


A recently unearthed document from Facebook shows that Donald Trump’s team outperformed Hillary Clinton’s in nearly every meaningful metric on its ad network during the 2016 election. Trump has often bragged of hiring the best people — a claim the White House turnover rate would seem to debunk — but this time, Facebook’s own data scientists agree: Trump did have the superior team. Or, maybe it’s the Cambridge Analytica effect. But that’s a story for a different day. First uncovered by Bloomberg, the paper details a heavy-handed approach to Facebook ads by both candidates. Between June and November 2016, Trump…

Best Sleeves for MacBook Pro (Late 2016, Mid-2017)

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

What are the best sleeves for the new MacBook Pro? Here are our favorites!

The new MacBook Pro is “fire” (as the kids say) or “hawt” (as the reality show idiots of my day said). But that gorgeous aluminum exterior is just that — it’s no adamantium. If you don’t want a hard shell case, fine; they’re kind of cumbersome and awful to try and remove.

At least grab a decent sleeve so that the outer beauty of your new MacBook Pro matches its inner beauty.

Here are our favorite sleeves!

Mujjo Sleeves for 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro

Your new MacBook Pro will look as classy as a limousine when you slip it into this gorgeous felt and tanned leather sleeve. You’ll be the envy of the executives in your life.

The sleeve has a leather flap with a stylish asymmetrical design. The rivet-style button snaps the flap closed to keep your MacBook Pro in place, and there are internal compartments that you can store paperwork, business cards, and other small but important things.

It’s available for the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro in black or tan leather.

Make sure you choose the correct-sized sleeve for your MacBook Pro. Pricing starts around $ 68.

AmazonBasics

All you need to know about the AmazonBasics sleeve is in the name — it’s basic. But if that’s all you need, then it’s a steal of a deal, for around $ 10, to start.

It’s available in 13.3 inches and 15.6 inches, which is a little bigger than the 15.4-inch MacBook Pro, but we’ll probably have to deal with that for a bit. It shouldn’t make too much of a difference.

These sleeves are made of neoprene and come in black, blue, gray, navy, and purple.

Lacdo

I really dig the look of Lacdo’s waterproof sleeves. They’re simple zip-up sleeves that feature an outer pouch for carrying peripherals and what not, and can save your MacBook Pro from spills and heavy rain. I wouldn’t toss one of these in a bathtub with your MacBook inside, but you’re safe from splashes.

The other cool thing about Lacdo’s sleeves is that they make some specifically for the new 15-inch (15.4-inch) MacBook Pro.

These sleeves come in black, blue, gray, pink, purple, red, and rose. Just make sure you pick the right size before checking out. Pricing starts around $ 14.

Case Logic

Case Logic’s sleeves are essentially a step up from AmazonBasics. They feature a nicer zipper and the material looks and feels like it’s made of sterner stuff. There’s also a layer of foam padding around the inside so that you can throw your MacBook into your backpack or wherever and not worry about smashing it up.

There’s some woven webbing along the sides of the Case Logic sleeve to add a bit of texture and grip as well. There are seven colors to choose from, from black to the standout lime green. Check it out for around $ 12.

ProCase

ProCase’s sleeves are stylish and quite functional, thanks to their handy carrying handle. You can use them as a solo laptop bag or just as a regular sleeve and toss ’em in your backpack.

They come in 13.5-inch and 15.6-inch sizes, so you’ll have one to fit your MacBook Pro, whichever size you decide to go with.

There’s a front pocket for pens and peripherals, and these sleeves open 180 degrees, so you can rest your laptop on the sleeve while you use it.

You have your choice of dark gray with orange trim, light gray with teal trim, or teal with orange trim. $ 19 to start.

See at Amazon

Evecase

The $ 10 Evecase is a laptop sleeve with a convenient carrying handle, making it a pseudo-laptop bag that’s lightweight and padded to protect your MacBook Pro from the jostling and bumping of everyday life.

There’s a zipper pocket on the outside for carrying charging cables and this is about as pragmatic as a sleeve gets, since it only comes in black with red trim.

These sleeves will likely only fit a 13-inch MacBook Pro, since the measurements of the largest size list the biggest external dimensions at 15 x 10.75 x 1.25 inches, but you could gamble with your larger MacBook if you really wanted to (not recommended).

See at Amazon

Tomtoc

The Tomtoc sleeve’s best feature is its plush fleece lining, which is soft as a baby lamb and designed to make sure your MacBook Pro stays in absolutely pristine condition. There’s even an inner flap that protects your laptop from the inside of the zipper — scratch-free zone!

The outside is made of durable neoprene to prevent punctures, scratches, and tears. Your MacBook Pro is safe nestled in a Tomtoc.

Make sure you choose the correct size before checking out! Starts at $ 10.

See at Amazon

Pad & Quill Valet

If money is of no object and you just want a cool, stylish leather sleeve for your new MacBook Pro, then I suggest the Valet Slim sleeve from Pad & Quill.

P&Q offers some really well-crafted genuine leather products and the Valet sleeve lives up to the name. You have Chestnut, Whiskey, and Chocolate colors to choose from, which are all gorgeous, and you have the added benefit of a lap table when you fold back the cover.

The front closure is subtle yet secure, and if you’re looking for a sleeve that oozes sophistication, then look no further. Just be prepared to pay a premium (starting at around $ 140). Pad & Quill offers a 25-year warranty on its sleeves, which is entirely arbitrary since we’re dealing with technology, but it’s nice to know it backs up its products, even after they’ve faded into obsolescence.

See at Pad & Quill

Kinmac

Kinmac’s water-resistant sleeve is a vertical-style option that’s available for both the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro. The outside is durable canvas, while the inside is soft and plush so as not to scratch your laptop.

There’s a large front pocket that can hold a mouse, your power cable, iPhone, or whatever. The color options are sophisticated and quite “grown up”, making this the perfect case for the office or college students (for all the college students who actually grew up — nerds).

You have six colors to choose from and pricing starts around $ 12.

See at Amazon

Incase ICON sleeve with Tensaerlite

Incase’s ICON sleeve provides an extra layer of protection where other sleeves don’t: “Tensaerlite” is what Incase calls the material the bumper is made of. So this is not only a sleeve, but a sort of bumper case for your MacBook Pro. It’s a more rigid edging around the whole thing, offer scratch and bump protection in one go.

These cases are a little pricier, starting around $ 68 for the 15-inch version, but you essentially get two accessories in one.

See at Amazon

Updated March 2018: Updated pricing and added Incase’s ICON sleeve, which features a bumper around the edges for added protection.

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND


An explosive new memo details one of Mark Zuckerberg’s most trusted executives attempting to justify growing concerns over the company’s data collection methods, and its relentless push to acquire new users. Titled “The Ugly,” the memo has never been circulated outside of Facebook’s offices until today, when Buzzfeed News got its hand on it. The memo, penned by Facebook Vice President Andrew “Boz” Bozworth, attempted to push a narrative where the ends certainly justified the means in regards to doing whatever it takes to ensure future growth, even at the expense of user privacy.

Motorola releases Android 8.0 Oreo kernel source code for 2016 Moto Z

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Motorola hasn’t been doing well lately. Several planned phones have seemingly been delayed or cancelled, and half of the company’s engineering team in Chicago was laid off earlier this month. While Oreo has yet to be released for the company’s 2016 flagship (at least beyond carrier testing), developers can now download the updated kernel source code.

If you’re not familiar with how this works, the Linux kernel that Android uses falls under the GPL license.

[Update: Fix in coming weeks] Android 8.1 update for 2016 Pixel XL causes a potentially dangerous overcurrent charging bug

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Generally speaking, updates remove bugs, but in the case of Google’s 2016 Pixel XL, a new problem was introduced with the Android 8.1 update this January. When charging in certain circumstances, the OG Pixel XL will (dangerously) attempt to pull up to 40% more current than it has negotiated from the charger, repeatedly entering and leaving a charging state as the charger shuts off due to overcurrent protection.

Android 8.1 update for 2016 Pixel XL causes a potentially dangerous overcurrent charging bug

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Generally speaking, updates remove bugs, but in the case of Google’s 2016 Pixel XL, a new problem was introduced with the Android 8.1 update this January. When charging in certain circumstances, the OG Pixel XL will (dangerously) attempt to pull up to 40% more current than it has negotiated from the charger, repeatedly entering and leaving a charging state as the charger shuts off due to overcurrent protection. So if you’ve noticed your Pixel XL recently flashing “charging rapidly” multiple times after being plugged into the stock charger, that’s why. 

At first glance, the specific circumstances required to trigger the problem might seem unlikely, but if you’re using the stock charger, they’re guaranteed.

Uber Is Getting Sued for Not Disclosing Its 2016 Data Breach

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Uber Data Everywhere

This morning, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro filed a lawsuit against Uber relating to a major data breach. The breach took place in October 2016, but Uber didn’t notify users about it until November 2017, which Shapiro alleges is illegal.

“Uber violated Pennsylvania law by failing to put our residents on timely notice of this massive data breach,” he said in a press release. “Instead of notifying impacted consumers of the breach within a reasonable amount of time, Uber hid the incident for over a year – and actually paid the hackers to delete the data and stay quiet. That’s just outrageous corporate misconduct, and I’m suing to hold them accountable and recover for Pennsylvanians.”

The massive data breach compromised the data of a staggering 57 million Uber users, and not just customers. Of the 25 million U.S. users affected, 4.1 million were Uber drivers, and the hackers gained access to their names, email addresses, phone numbers, and driver’s license numbers.

Shapiro has the power to sue Uber for $ 1,000 per violation against a Pennsylvania resident, which adds up to roughly 13,500 violations. If the state wins its case, Uber could owe upwards of $ 1.3 million.

Breaches Happen

Uber is no stranger to legal trouble and scandal. In 2017 alone, the company faced criticism for its toxic culture, history of workplace harassment, and involvement in President Trump’s advisory council. It also dealt with lawsuits, leadership issues, resignations, a government investigation, backlash against the misuse of a passenger’s medical records after a sexual assault that occurred in an Uber ride, which led to another lawsuit, and so much more.

Based on Shapiro’s lawsuit, it looks like the company’s 2018 might not be any less tumultuous.

Of course, Uber isn’t the first company targeted by hackers, but Shapiro isn’t suing Uber because of the data breach. He’s suing the company for its response to the breach.

While other major companies should do everything they can to protect users’ data, breaches can and do happen. At that point, a company has a responsibility to inform its customers about the situation.

Ultimately, by suing Uber, Shapiro could deliver a wake-up call to companies that think keeping users in the dark is an acceptable response when hackers access their data.
