Good morning! This is the tech news you need to know this Thursday.

Hours after 18 nations signed a pledge to fight online terrorism through content moderation, the White House released a form encouraging people to report instances in which their content or accounts were removed from the social media. The form, called the "Tech Bias Story Sharing Tool," asks for links and citizenship status, before asking for an email address to be added to the Trump campaign marketing list. The White House frames tech content moderation as a free speech issue, though many of ...

The founder of a beloved productivity app thinks the startup model is broken — here's how he's trying to keep the tech industry from 'making the same 10,000 mistakes over and over again'

Phil Libin, a longtime entrepreneur and the founder of Evernote, thinks the technology industry isn't doing a good job of promoting innovation. He's particularly critical of the startup model, because its focus on building companies leaves out worthy ideas and talented technologists. Libin new startup, called All Turtles, is hoping to disrupt that model by funding the development of ideas and turning them into products before their developers teams have to worry about building companies around...

This $199 'Star Wars' toy is the best example yet of the technology that could one day replace the smartphone (DIS, AAPL, MSFT)

If you ask Apple, the next big thing in computing is augmented reality, or AR — the technology for overlaying digital imagery on the real world. Indeed, when the iPhone 8 launches on September 12th, expect AR to be a big focus. The eventual goal, as promised by Facebook, Microsoft, Google, and startups like Magic Leap, is a pair of smart glasses that combine the digital and physical world. From there, why would you need a smartphone? After all, your text messages, Instagram feed, and Netflix wou...

Why Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, and Google all desperately need you to know that the robots are coming (FB, GOOGL, MSFT, AMZN)

It's been an unusual year in tech: Apart from maybe Snapchat's elusive Spectacles, there hasn't been a truly game-changing, mass-market piece of technology that's totally dominated the conversation.
