A tricky dark pattern on If you’re given a prescription you’re taken to a checkout. One of the steps is an upsell that has no visible opt out. You have to swipe right - it’s a carousel). Not cool. Taking advantage of vulnerable, unwell people.

Here’s an example of a recruiter who has gone to some lengths to make himself sound like a practitioner rather than a recruiter. Just… why?

I can’t believe what I’m seeing! While running a facial recognition pilot, one man (understandably imho) covered himself up. The police forced him to show his face (& then fined him for disorderly conduct). This is dangerous & terrifying.

The Airbnb lodging was listed as a "clean room with private bathroom" but was in fact a mattress and portaloo in a shipping container.

Yeah I was reading this yesterday. It doesn’t seem good to always have a default selected as that acts as a persuasive nudge.

e.g. First Direct send SMS messages containing your £ balance and a mini statement. I'm interested to know how widespread that is...

Anyone get notifications from their bank or financial providers that contain actual financial info (e.g. your balance) rather than just generic "you have a secure message"?

I think this is by design, because radio buttons are intended to always be used as a group. In this case, there should be two radio buttons (yes/no) with neither option preselected.

Figma is awesome. If you slack someone in your team there’s no neeed to screenshare, they can see your cursor already. Live collaborating on the same project feels so good too. One person doing copy details, another UI etc...

I can’t understand the logic of starting a relationship with lies that will be revealed almost immediately.

Recruiters: when you cold call someone, why do you pretend that you’ve previously spoken with the person you’re calling and that have a relationship? Also why do you try to pretend you’re not a recruiter? Genuine question.
