A decline in Facebook usage might not be the doomsday scenario for the company that many are predicting (FB)

Facebook users are using Facebook less — but that's not necessarily the end of the world for the company. An analyst argues that television's revenues increased for years after it hit peak viewership, suggesting a way forward for Facebook. And the company also has Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger at its disposal — all of which could be considerably more monetized than they are now. A key question confronting Facebook in 2019 is whether Facebook's nightmare year of scandals will have real co...

Here’s what to expect in cybersecurity in 2019

Around this time every year, my inbox fills with the same repetitive junk. “Would you consider putting [any random company] in your gift guide?”, “are you going to CES and if so can I pitch you [a gadget that literally won’t be around this time next year]?”, and, “do you want to cover [a company you’ve never hard of’s] predictions for next year?” To which I always respond: “No,” “absolutely not” and “predictions are not news.” The “predictions” emails piss me off. Most of the companies that offe...

Pair their name with their logo, and it’s a self-love fest.You can see this play out when you order a physical product from an online store. The shipping box is often branded. Sometimes the tape is even branded. Then once you tear into it, the internal packaging is branded. Then the item, too — often in multiple places.

How to choose and use an encrypted messaging app

If you have an iPhone, you’re already on your way. iPhones (as well as iPads and Macs) use iMessage to send messages between Apple devices. It’s a data-based messaging system reliant on 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi, rather than SMS messaging, which uses an old, outdated but universal 2G cellular network. iMessage has grown...

Mhmmmmmm: Making it to the top isn’t the game you should be focused on. The top is full of people who hate what they had to do or who they had to become to get there. Even for the people who get there with a clean conscience often end up disappointed by how shallow the satisfaction really is.Besides, you only have limited influence on whether you’re going to succeed at whatever you put your mind to.

At Blind, a security lapse revealed private complaints from Silicon Valley employees

Thousands of people trusted Blind, an app-based “anonymous social network,” as a safe way to reveal malfeasance, wrongdoing and improper conduct at their companies.
