I was talking with my brother this weekend. We always have a chat about the world at large. He said that the world was bubbling. He’s right.
We aren’t at war but there is this strange feeling that feels like we in the midst of a war.
Trump is losing his grip and he knows it. He is incapable of turning around the cruise ship. He has somehow been able to create havoc on the world
When dynamics shift things change. We were a powerful country that has lost respect except for the dictators across the world who love how Trump pretends to be in charge. He will get his. But we have got ours too.
Look at what’s happening in Israel. Look at what happened Beirut. Look at the protests in Russia. Look at the push back in Poland. Even look at the protests in Bolivia. There are so many other countries to point to. Look at the people who are winning local elections here in the states. They are pushing out the old guard and most of them have never run for office before. Most of them are black, female, and gay.
People are pissed and the new generation is speaking out and making changes. Unclear why there are still 40% of people in this country that support Trump. 15% I get but 40% is shocking and very worrisome about the future.
It isn’t a war but it is a war of something else while we are in a Pandemic. A perfect storm calling for massive change. It might be ugly getting there but we will get there. I’m optimistic it will be a much better world on the other side of the rolling boil.
Apple Rejects App for Verifying Pennsylvania Ballots
Efforts to reject some ballots in battleground states like Pennsylvania could determine the outcome of next week’s election. But a mobile app designed to help ensure that Pennsylvania ballots are getting counted has already been rejected—by Apple.
After almost two weeks of holding up the release of the app, called Drive Turnout, Apple on Thursday told the developer behind it, Ari Steinberg, that the app violates the company’s privacy rules and that Apple won’t release it. It was a curious decision. Steinberg’s app relies on information that is publicly available on a Pennsylvania state website, which allows anyone with a voter’s name, date of birth and county of residence to verify that that voter’s ballot has been counted.
Tech Selloff Follows Earnings: The Information’s Tech Briefing
If Thursday was party time for tech companies, most of which reported better-than-expected earnings, Friday was the hangover. Most big tech stocks tumbled, as the Nasdaq led the market down by losing nearly 2.5%. Yes, there is a disconnect there, although major tech stocks have rallied strongly in recent months, so maybe they’re getting hit harder by growing anxieties about Covid-19 and next week’s election. .
Investors also might be focusing on some worrying areas emerging for several companies, including weak user growth at Twitter and Facebook, and lower-than-expected iPhone sales at Apple. As one Wall Street executive quoted in this Bloomberg article noted, “the market has priced tech to near perfection and thus one fly—maybe even a fruit fly—in the ointment could perpetuate a selloff.”
The Information’s 411 — Contractors With Benefits
Will Uber and Lyft drivers become full-time employees, or something more like contractors with benefits? California’s Proposition 22 will help determine the fate of “gig” work, as well as the financial fortunes of Uber, Lyft, DoorDash and Instacart. Tom and Cory break down this high-stakes battle ahead of Election Day, with some help from Uber and Lyft reporter extraordinaire Amir Efrati. We also hear from Uber and Lyft drivers on both sides of the fight, one of the most important political battles ever for the tech industry.
