Snapchat: So, About Those Public Stories That Automatically Disappear... Would You Miss Them

Snapchat owner Snap Inc. has had a rough go of it lately.

Most Instagrammed places in the US

The more jaded travelers among us might say nobody travels anymore; they just go places to collect content for their Instagrams. Which, for a large segment of the population, is probably true. Such is travel in 2019, where the popularity of both people and places is largely gauged on the ‘gram. While we’re not going to pass judgment on any national park, sandy beach, or mouse-eared theme park based on the number of hashtags it got in 2018, Play Picks is happy to do so. The sports-betting tips...

Instagram outage forces millions to look directly at the world for nearly half an hour

Photo-sharing app and social network Instagram was briefly taken offline on Monday afternoon, causing nothing of consequence to occur other than a brief respite from one source of the constant deluge of inconsequential information to which we all voluntarily submit ourselves. The service died at about 4:20, tragically the very moment when millions of people were turning to the app, for the third time that hour, desperately hoping to pass the time until the end of the workday. At least this wa...

Former Munchery employees sue company, blame CEO for shutdown

The Munchery saga continues. In a new class-action lawsuit, former Munchery facilities worker Joshua Philips is claiming the startup owes him and 250 other employees 60 days’ wages, citing The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, a U.S. labor law that requires employers with an excess of 100 employees to give notice 60 days ahead of mass layoffs. Munchery, a prepared meal delivery company headquartered in San Francisco, announced in an email to customers on January 21 that it wo...

Is $3,000 Too Much For a Camera?

I really wonder about this. On the one hand, I've been "cash strapped" most of my life and I think $3k is a huge amount of money to spend for a camera, verging on "outrageous." On the other hand, I've done it. Never actually $3k+ on a single body exclusively I guess, but close, and I've bought a $3k camera and lens, or one body plus a second backup body, or an outfit. Not once but several times. I regret almost all of those purchases—all but one that I can think of—and I wish I had most of that ...
