    Parents Blame Elementary School's Cell Tower after 4th Student Diagnosed with Cancer

    Yeah I just don't see the data backing this one up. 4 kids in three years might be statistically significant/anomalous in a small school (like sub 1000 kids) but otherwise probably not as unusual as people think. Much like people blaming vaccines for autism, when something bad happens people...

    Texas Is Trying to Block Tesla from Servicing Its Cars

    Florida Introduces "Stop Social Media Censorship Act"

    Although I believe social media platforms should not (in most cases) censor users I am not sure if legislating penalties for them doing so is appropriate. They are after all not government entities. It seems like this legislation could result in some pretty serious unintended consequences if not...

    Philadelphia Passes Ban on Cashless Stores; Amazon Go Plans Said to Be in Jeopardy

    I communicated my point pretty clearly if you bothered to read; But you know that already because you're just trolling and have nothing of substance to contribute.

    Take pictures... with the expensive smart phone you own. reload at the walmart that you 1. have in your area (not everyone does) and 2. you can easily drive to with a car you are fortunate enough to be able to afford. Furthermore it costs money to load the card and it may be convenient to use...

    Philadelphia Passes Ban on Cashless Stores; Amazon Go Plans Said to Be in Jeopardy

    It's not about limiting us to the lowest common denominator, it's about protecting people without access to bank accounts and credit from a potential world where despite having money they are unable to use it to pay for basic necessities. If cashless stores become the norm combined with the fact...

    Activision and EA CEOs Appear on List of "Most Overpaid" in the US

    Rotten Tomatoes Bans "Want to See" Score, User Comments before Films' Release

    Yep not surprised I mean how dare people have opinions that don't align with a specific cultural narrative being pushed by movie studios. A real liberal knows the remedy to bad speech is good speech not censorship. Sadly real liberals all seem to have died off.

    Amazon Announces Plan to Fight Counterfeits

    This will end up fucking legitimate resellers as brands scramble to protect exclusivity and fix market prices by flagging everyone that sells their product for even a penny less than MSRP. This is one of the dumbest ideas Amazon has rolled out in a long time.

    YouTube Stars Panic as Site Pulls Ads over "Inappropriate Comments"

    How China's Social Credit System Affects Its Citizens and Businesses

    Exactly we won't have to mandate it here if you chose to opt out people will just treat you as if you are a pedophile or serial killer. Having no Facebook credit score will be even worse than having a bad one. No need to have government paid observers report on your behavior, your neighbor...

    How China's Social Credit System Affects Its Citizens and Businesses

    Truck Owners Are Blocking Tesla Superchargers in "ICE-ing" Protests

    NVIDIA Faces Class Action Lawsuit over Losses after Diminished Mining GPU Demand

    or how about neither. it's not like it has to be a binary choice between oppression and less oppression.
