In the past decade, celebrity interest and investment in tech companies has significantly increased. But not all celebrity investments are created equally. Some investors, like Ashton Kutcher, have prioritized the VC pursuits. Some have invested casually without getting overly involved. Others have used their considerable platforms to market their portfolio to varying degrees of success. It’s been a little over a year since Ryan Reynolds bought a majority stake in Mint Mobile, a deal that has...

'They don't care whether it looks like an alien invasion': A Canadian inventor says many people prefer his $379 BioVyzr COVID-19 helmet to masks

The $379 COVID-19 visor weighs 2.5 kilograms and "feels like you're standing under an umbrella." VYZR Researchers have debated how protective masks are from COVID-19. A Danish study says they're not as effective as we think. While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cites 28 studies proving masks offer protection to the wearer and those around them. One inventor based in Toronto says his $379 BioVyzr with built-in air filters is an alternative to uncomfortable masks th...

Facebook's AI-fueled attempt to block bad ads is hurting legitimate small business owners — and its 'pay-to-play' customer support is leaving them stranded ahead of the holiday shopping season

Elijah Nouvelage/Reuters Facebook's efforts to crack down on violations of its ad policies are mistakenly penalizing advertisers over selling benign products like dog posters and women's jewelry, Business Insider has learned. Facebook has relied more heavily on AI to police its platform during the pandemic, but hundreds of advertisers say they've had ads — and even entire accounts — banned despite not violating any policies. Seven business owners, all of whom run ads for small businesses,...
