Elon Musk didn’t delete SpaceX and Tesla from Facebook, according to this developer


Shortly after the Cambridge Analytica debacle broke out, heaps of high-profile celebrities and brands – including Elon Musk, and his ventures SpaceX and Tesla – went on to delete their Facebook pages. But it appears these admirable acts of protest might have been nothing more than a self-serving case of virtue signalling. Contrary to Musk’s promise to delete the accounts, it seems that Tesla and SpaceX have instead opted to unpublish their official Facebook pages. This means that the pages are not deleted, but merely invisible to users for the time being. What’s Facebook? — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) March 23,…

It’s official: we’re entering conference season. Those lucky enough to be sent by their employers to some exotic clime for a few days of networking know how hard it can be to find somewhere to stay.

Some virtual loot boxes may violate Dutch gambling laws


Loot boxes are a controversial element in modern gaming. These virtual boxes — which you often have to buy with real-world cash — offer random items to be used within a title. These can be as simple as a skin that changes the appearance of a character or weapon, or something that radically transforms gameplay. You never know what you’re going to get, and it’s for this reason why some have compared it to gambling. It’s a bit like pulling the lever on a one-armed bandit; you might make a couple of bucks, or you might hit the jackpot. The…

Why I won’t pay for a safer Facebook


The recent Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal has sparked plenty of interesting conversations about the value of our data, the future of Facebook, and the relevance of social networks. It also led CEO Mark Zuckerberg to address the question of whether there’d ever be a paid version of Facebook; when testifying before US Congress, he didn’t entirely rule it out. And today, BuzzFeed News combed through the company’s financials and did the math to figure out what a Facebook subscription would cost: $11 a month.
