The crazy story tonight on FB has me asking: Will someone be fired for Facebook’s role in all of this? And if so, who? And, if not, why not?

This story has been 6 months in the making. It started with a question: What happened inside Facebook over the last 3 years, and what did top executives, Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg, do in the wake of crisis after crisis battering the company?

I sincerely hope I don’t live to see the day that people stop going to the movies together and opt instead to watch movies *solo together* by strapping on VR headsets

I've solved this problem: I already bought everything.

If you're after a TV this season, the quick table I put together for the NYT can help you decide what to get.

Temporary, imperfect solution: how about we all just turn our phones on do not disturb, only whitelisting incoming calls from our bosses and family members, until the midterms are over? The robocalls have been ruthless.

Other than that, the iPad Pro makes clear that USB-C is a better connector than Lightning, and I wish Apple would just abandon Lightning already.

I understand reviewers’ concern about lack of external storage options, but I think creatives can live without that especially since so much is done in the cloud now. Most important is the 12.9-inch model no longer feels overwhelmingly large.

Apple loaned me a new iPad Pro a couple of days ago (I was on vacation earlier), so I haven’t had ample time to do a review. But FWIW I think it’s a big step toward replacing a laptop. The keyboard is much better, but I still don’t like typing on it.

The water cooler jugs hit empty and we have no more for days till the next delivery. Then we start drinking from the water bottles that we have stored in case of an earthquake emergency. I do, however, run a well-stocked bar here...

We used to have an M&M dispenser here in the SF bureau. No longer. We also often run out of drinking water.
