Trump’s media bias poll might be the most biased thing I’ve read in 2019

President Trump continues to fire shots at the press, claiming biased coverage, misrepresented facts, and sometimes entirely made-up stories. In what can only be described as a war on traditional media, Trump continued his assault today with a poll on media bias that, ironically, might be the most biased line of questioning this reporter has ever laid eyes on. Made clear from the line of questioning that this is less a poll and more an attempt to ignite Trump’s base in a push for reelection in 2...

Windows 10’s search bar and Cortana split up on good terms

Since Windows 10’s inception Cortana has been directly integrated into the search bar. The idea was that it would make it easier for people to find answers in one place, whether through text search or voice queries.

Slack has a new logo, and, umm, you be the judge

There comes a time in every company’s journey when it needs to find a reason to change its logo. Today, that time has come for Slack. Look, I’m normally cool with logo changes.

Hands-on: The Doogee S90 modular phone is weird as hell

Doogee — and I think they’ll forgive me for saying this — has a propensity for releasing strange phones. Remember the Doogee Mix 2 phone? Y’know, the one which had to be flipped 180 degrees in order to take a selfie? Well, the Doogee S90 is weirder. Unequivocally. At its core, this is a ruggedized handset, similar to the ones touted by Caterpillar , as well as other Chinese phone manufacturers, like BlackView. But Doogee manages to go far beyond that, and the S90 is extensible in a way that’s ha...

YC-backed Upsolve is automating bankruptcy for everyone

The popular image of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy might be a large company like Enron failing, or maybe some lazy drifter trying to shirk their financial responsibilities. The reality is anything but those sorts of images. Today in America, the most common reason for bankruptcy is to discharge egregious sums of medical debt [1], which might have been incurred in a short stint in a hospital emergency room. Bankruptcy allows people to get out from under a debilitating and permanent state of financial cr...
