Here’s how Trump’s trade war with China might increase the price of the iPhone

The stock market has been particularly volatile as of late, which shouldn't come as much of a surprise given Donald Trump's penchant for making threats on Twitter about increasing import tariffs on Chinese-made goods.

Tarte Adelaine Morin Eye & Cheek Palette Review & Swatches

Tarte Adelaine Morin Eye & Cheek Palette ($39) launched a few short weeks ago and was created in collaboration with youTuber Adelaine Morin. Yes, I’m old and had to Google who she was because I was all: Ok, so, here’s the thing. I’m either not watching enough youTube, I’m too old, I may live under a rock, or Tarte selects youTubers no one ever heard of to do collaborations with. I’ll feel a lot better if someone steps in here and says they don’t know who Adelaine is either. Had the same issue ...

Big Tech lobbyists and "open for business" Tories killed Ontario's Right-to-Repair legislation

In February, Liberal Party opposition MPP Michael Coteau introduced Right to Repair legislation after he was charged $400 to fix the cracked screen on his daughter's Samsung phone; that bill is now dead, as are dozens of Right to Repair bills introduced in US state houses, after Conservative MPs, heavily lobbied by US Big Tech firms, killed it before it could proceed to committee. Coteau identified the murderers of his bill, as they weren't shy about it: the cause was led by the Electronics...

Welcome to YouTube Hell: A MIDI pack reseller silences criticism

YouTube is elevating new voices to prominence in music technology as in other fields. But the platform’s esoteric rules are also ripe for abuse – as one YouTube host claims. The story begins with around a product, the Unison MIDI Chord Pack. This US$67 pack is already, on its surface, a bit strange. Understandably, users without musical training may like the idea of drag-and-drop chords and harmony – nothing wrong with that. But the actual product appears to be just a set of folders full of...

Dozens of Right to Repair bills were introduced across the USA last year, only to be defeated by hardcore lobbying led by Apple and backed by a rogue's gallery of giant manufacturers of every description; one of the most effective anti-repair tactics is to spread FUD about the supposed security risks of independent repairs.
