Amazon.com has been crowing about its plans to create 100,000 American jobs in the next year, but as with other recent job-creation announcements, that figure is meaningless without context. What Amazon won’t tell us is that every job created at Amazon destroys one or two or three others. What Jeff Bezos doesn’t want you to know is that Amazon is going to destroy more American jobs than China ever did.
Newly unsealed FBI records show how the agency manipulated Best Buy's Geek Squad to conduct warrantless government searches of customers' computers. Recently unsealed records reveal a much more extensive secret relationship than previously known between the FBI and Best Buy's Geek Squad, including evidence the agency trained company technicians on law-enforcement operational tactics, shared lists of targeted citizens and, to covertly increase surveillance of the public, encouraged searches of computers even when unrelated to a customer's request for repairs.
“I responded with just scriptural commentary and that is considered ‘hate speech’ by Facebook,” Johnston explained. “It was just very intellectual and it was just a commentary on what the Bible says.

Twitter has introduced an account limiting penalty for users that violate the platform's terms of service. This new feature seems to be part of Twitter’s recent attempts to curb “abuse” on the platform.

Billionaire Elon Musk is known for his futuristic ideas and his latest suggestion might just save us from being irrelevant as artificial intelligence (AI) grows more prominent. During his talk, Musk touched upon his fear of "deep AI" which goes beyond driverless cars to what he called "artificial general intelligence".

Shia LaBeouf vowed Donald Trump would not divide us, but the museum where he held the protest did -- the 24/7 webcam has been shut down. The Museum of the Moving Image in NYC says it turned off the cam mounted on one of its walls because it had become a "flashpoint for violence." Shia was arrested on January 25 when he allegedly got physical with a protester who showed up to oppose the movement. There had been other physical altercations where no one was arrested -- with and without Shia -- and NYPD started patrolling the spot regularly.
“Under certain circumstances they perceive their online communication as ‘hyper-personal communication’ and thus they can misread and over-interpret the messages on social media,” said Dr. Astrid Carolus, Media Psychologist at the University of Würzburg. “We feel especially close, we blind out the rather negative, focus on the possible positive intentions behind a message, and over-interpret.” Participants were surveyed on the types of items they post on social media and the types of posts from others that have positive or negative influences on their moods.

US residents are increasingly being coerced by customs agents to reveal the contents of their computers and social media accounts. “My understanding from other people who’ve dealt with this is it’s not uncommon for some people to be asked for their social media” directly since the policy changed last year, Stanek told Vocativ. “Unfortunately, this is becoming much more common for people arriving from certain parts of the world.” “I have no quantitative data on this, but as a lawyer who focuses on this issue, it definitely seems like CBP is ramping up device searches,”
