Google has shared information on how Russia-linked accounts attempted to use its platforms to influence American politics

More than 1,000 videos linked to state-sponsored actors were identified, with more than 300,000 cumulative views in the U.S. between June 2015 and November 2016 — the US presidential election period.


Facebook lawyer Colin Stretch told lawmakers that the company should have done more to prevent Russia-backed propaganda from spreading on its platform around the 2016 U.S. presidential election

“I think in hindsight, we should have had a broader lens,“ he said with regard to Facebook’s efforts to weed out politically-charged ads from fake accounts. “There were signals we missed.“


The first iPhone X reviews have been published and they’re overwhelmingly positive

The screen, the phone size, the augmented reality features, and the camera have all been praised.


With the iPhone X, Apple made some big changes to who gets review units first, and not everyone is taking it very well

In a series of venom-filled posts on Monday, for example, Apple blogger John Gruber lashed out at some of the media outlets he apparently deemed unworthy of getting early access to the new iPhone.


Apple released brand new emojis as part of iOS 11.1

There are 70 new characters, and 239 new emojis in total if you include skin tone and gender variations.

Samsung has 3 new CEOs after the last ones got ousted following a huge political scandal

Kim Ki-nam, 59, was appointed to lead the Device Solutions division which makes components including memory chips; Koh Dong-jin, 56, would head up IT and Mobile Communications; and Kim Hyun-suk, 56, would lead Consumer Electronics, Samsung said in a statement. The changes were effective immediately.

We’ll.  It’s a step forward to see the Commission AGENDA - but what about the minutes?  The last two agendas have said “ Approve County Commission Minutes-None”      Aren’t there supposed to legally be minutes for the public to read?????  This makes NO sense unless things are going on that the Commission doesn’t want the public to know.  Obviously.  SHOW THE MINUTES Jean Butcher, do your job!

Comment by 304 More Issues  on  11.02.2017

Aren’t they supposed to have agendas AND minutes for each and every meeting, by law?  They put it right there on the agendas that there were None. And months’ go by without even Seeing an Agenda.  It’s a citizen’s right to go in and ask to see them ALL.  Someone needs to look into this.  Especially with all the speculation that goes on around legal issues in the county!
