Instagram will once again show you posts in the order they were shared

Thank you, thank you, a million times, thank you.

It’s no secret that Instagram is the biggest social network for sharing pictures and videos of whatever’s going on in your life, but for the last couple years, it’s been a hot mess for a lot of users. Instagram made a change to its algorithm in 2016, and rather than showing you posts in the order they were shared, users began seeing photos/videos that Instagram determined you’d like to see.

Facebook never earned your trust and now we’re all paying the price

There was no Facebook data breach. You gave them the data, and they gave it away — all according to plan.

News reports have been swirling about Facebook (a company you know), Cambridge Analytica (a company you might not have heard of), and the 2016 United States presidential election. It’s an important story, but I’ve observed a critical misunderstanding or miscasting of the discussion in many media outlets, even those that are supposed to be tech-savvy. You’ve maybe seen  [Read More…]

Only 88,000 units of the Essential Phone were sold in 2017

Despite numerous software updates and price cuts, Essential still has a lot of work to do.

It’s no secret at this point that the Essential Phone has had a rough life. Relentless software updates and a dramatic price cut have resulted in the device finally being at least worthy of your consideration, but its blundering launch appears to have hurt Essential where it counts.

Apple’s Grammy ads were all about Apple. Google’s was about the rest of us

The iPhone X has Animoji, if you didn’t know. … Google had stories of hope to tell instead.
