Trump Warns That Florida Recount Could Set Dangerous Precedent of Person with Most Votes Winning | The New Yorker

Having just returned from the Armistice commemoration in Paris, Trump said that Florida’s recount has made America “the laughingstock of the world,” adding, “Putin told me they never do recounts in Russia.”

This is satire, but honestly, when Trump's involved, it's hard to know sometimes.

Facebook Is Giving Advertisers Access to Your Shadow Contact Information

The researchers also found that if User A, whom we’ll call Anna, shares her contacts with Facebook, including a previously unknown phone number for User B, whom we’ll call Ben, advertisers will be able to target Ben with an ad using that phone number, which I call “shadow contact information,” about a month later. Ben can’t access his shadow contact information, because that would violate Anna’s privacy, according to Facebook, so he can’t see it or delete it, and he can’t keep advertisers from using it either.

So a person can have nothing to do with Facebook, but Facebook will still build a profile on them. If that person wants to control that information, they have no choice but to create a Facebook account.

At this point I guess we really shouldn’t be surprised by the things Facebook does.

According to Segerdahl, Microsoft can’t do anything to remedy the issue. Furthermore, Intel is limited as they provide a reference platform for manufacturers to extend and build new models on.

And

Apple, however, has said it is looking into measures to protect Mac computers. It’s worth noting that Macs with a T2 chip, like the iMac Pro and 2018 MacBook Pro models, are not affected by the flaw.

Apple’s investment in chips is paying off in more ways than one.
