YouTube spanks Alex Jones, offers dire warning for future videos


A media organization known for dealing in half-truths and complete falsehoods found itself on shaky ground this week after YouTube pulled one of its videos. Alex Jones, a purveyor of far-reaching conspiracy theories aimed at the right — and pills that apparently turn you red — received a warning from YouTube after portraying survivors of the Parkland school shootings as paid crisis actors.

Apple Pay Promo Offers Free Delivery With Instacart

For the last few months, Apple has been offering regular promotions to entice customers to use Apple Pay within various apps.

This week, Apple has teamed up with Instacart to offer free delivery on groceries purchased in the Instacart app using Apple Pay through February 28.


To get the deal, customers will need to spend at least $35 per order, and taxes and service fees still apply. Free delivery is also contingent on availability, as Instacart has something called “Busy Pricing” which is an added fee during the busiest parts of the day.

Free delivery from Instacart for orders over $35 normally requires a membership to Instacart Express, a service that costs $14.99 per month or $149 per year. Apple’s free delivery offers an opportunity for potential Instacart customers to test Instacart Express.

Without Instacart Express, normal Instacart orders cost $5.99 in delivery fees.

Apple’s new promotional email also highlights several grocery stores that offer Apple Pay, including Raley’s, Giant Eagle, Sprouts,
Stop & Shop, Whole Foods, and Wegmans.
