Here's a security practice from @zapier that I'd like to see more broadly adopted: use phone numbers NOT for authentication, but instead for partial access recovery via support team. /cc @Stammy #2fa #security https://twitter.com/Stammy/status/1186260455519600641

Instagram has always used Apple Maps for location pages, yes? So is it just that there's a big new Maps logo in the bottom left corner? /cc @wongmjane · @mosseri · @mosjef

Haven't shopped http://amazon.com in a while... looks like a new sidebar cart design? (Yes, I'm going to Hawaii next month!🏝️)
Apparently it's spooky #ReleaseNotes season. 🎃🧹👻
There's now an app for generating hashtags for @tiktok_us. It used to be targeted at Instagram. Zuck must be fuming that he can't acquire it. Also wondering how this kind of optimization might affect the TikTok algorithm. /cc @TaylorLorenz #releasenotes
For those of us who don't watch sportsball 🏈, what time do they go on sale? 'Tickets for “Star Wars: #TheRiseOfSkywalker” will go on sale Monday evening after halftime of the National Football League game between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets.'
man you gotta be kidding me
 
Why are they asking you to conserve water? Typo?
 
Have you seen the recent brush fires? https://twitter.com/abc/status/1186378281077096449?s=21
 
Yeah. It’s not good.
Found this sweet page of "Vintage and obsolete products" that's Apple's made over the years... "vintage"! https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201624
Trying to backup my iPhone on #macOSCatalina. What a nightmare. Finder's just like: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
 
Are you asking why I don't backup to iCloud? First, I shouldn't have to, and second, backing up 250GB to iCloud will increase my LTV to Apple more than I'm comfortable with.
 
No, you should not have to, just as I do not have to use Apple Music and can listen to my (ripped) CDs, but it is darn convenient, and just works for me. Likewise, I can use Netflix DVD rather than streaming. These services have lower LTV and save time. So, consider it.
RT @vikihudds: Only halfway through this final episode but it's already my favourite, loving hearing from @chrismessina about his views on…
We've now outsourced the determination of truthiness to social media platforms. It'll be fascinating to revisit this move in a couple years to assess the unintended consequences. #election2020 https://twitter.com/lkfazio/status/1186342652641456128
Facebook has always been about making desired information more accessible. This change feels akin to the launch of newsfeed but instead for political organizations that hide their actions through obscurity or obfuscation. Does corporate personhood afford a right to privacy? https://twitter.com/alexhern/status/1186345002965917697
I wonder if the answer was "he's @jeff on Instagram" that would've been more impressive. 🤣 https://twitter.com/213to703/status/1186329206885666816

I love this product teardown from 2013 from @rrhoover on Mindie, what effectively was a precursor to Tiktok, and was one of his first hunts, ever [1]. https://pando.com/2013/11/04/want-to-feel-badass-a-design-teardown-of-music-app-mindie/

“For some reason I don’t see myself doing that as much on VSCO, because it feels more comfortable, more like I’m contributing to the community rather than trying to look a certain way.” —Thato Sepanya https://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2019/10/18/gen-zs-vsco-girls-abandoning-instagram/ /tip @Techmeme #VSCOGirls
Meanwhile, @vsco is having its own moment... “On Instagram, it’s easier to compare yourself, and you get lost in it and forget that people put their best work out there and the finished product out there, and you start to feel inadequate.

Lebanon's public debt is equal to around 150% of GDP.
