The death of net neutrality could be the

The death of net neutrality could be the end of Bitcoin – FCC head Ajit Pai has always been the scumbag hiding in plain sight. While his weasel-like nature may have never been in question, this week’s sneak attack on net neutrality put to bed any doubt. After assuming his final form as Satan, Pai effectively killed the internet as we know it while we stuffed our face with dry turkey and store-bought pumpkin pie. But while we discuss internet fast lanes and paid tier… http://ow.ly/m9Hj50fJ1XS

Amazon extends olive branch to Google by

Amazon extends olive branch to Google by relisting the Chromecast – An Amazon spokesperson told CNET that the company would be putting up listings for the Chromecast and the Chromecast Ultra, apparently in an attempt to make peace with a miffed Google.

All cr… http://ow.ly/pIMj50fIL9b

The bad news is that six-second pre-roll ads will be coming to dedicated video tabs such as Watch. The less bad news is that it looks like they won’t be infiltrating News Feed.

Net neutrality is dead – The Federal Com

Net neutrality is dead – The Federal Communications Commission today voted to end Obama-era net neutrality protections. Voting along party lines, the ballots were cast as expected with the Republican-controlled FCC ending the Title II classification and effectively handing control of the internet to ISPs like Comcast, Time Warner, and AT&T. The contentious vote was not without its tense moments. At one point the room was cleared for what we’re speculating was a bomb… http://ow.ly/5raR50fIyXV

Computers can now read emotions — here’s

Computers can now read emotions — here’s how that will help you sell products – Two years ago, luxury car brand Bentley created an app to solve what must be the epitome of first world problems: helping customers pick the right Bentayga SUV, based on facial emotion analysis. The Inspirator App, which is no longer available, scanned your facial expressions while showing different videos containing “lifestyle-themed stimuli” to work out which customizable features — wh… http://ow.ly/cv1j50fIjj9
