Philippines' ousted Supreme Court chief lambastes Duterte

Top Stories - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 07:00

The ousted Philippine Supreme Court chief justice launched a blistering attack on President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday, calling him a "self-styled savior who is willing to kill", after she lost an appeal against her removal from office. Maria Lourdes Sereno, the first woman chief justice of the Philippines who Duterte denounced as an "enemy" for her opposition to some of his proposals, was ousted by fellow-judges allied with the president last month. "Our sights have been set low by the very leaders who should lead us to pursue lofty visions for our nation and our people," Sereno said in a speech to her supporters after the court ruling.


Friends and enemies: Reacting to Apple’s privacy stance

Macworld - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 07:00

Shocking news has reached the Macalope’s furry ears: it turns out that Apple is not a non-profit set up with the goal of protecting individual privacy and that it actually sells things and uses that as a sales point! It’s all very tawdry and shocking.

If you are five.

Writing for Gizmodo, Rhett Jones says “Apple Isn't Your Friend.” (Tip o’ the antlers to Tibor.)

[sob] [slam]

Apple has been steadily positioning itself as the anti-Facebook for a while now, and between verbal jabs aimed at the social media giant and privacy-focused product decisions, the patient goodwill campaign seems to be working. Unfortunately, Apple isn't going to save us, and now's the time to keep your guard up.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s newest release shows how Apple Music has tipped the streaming scale

Macworld - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 06:00

At 5:30 pm EDT on Saturday, the Tidal high-fidelity music streaming service was suddenly the center of attention. Just weeks after Kanye West dropped his Ye album on all streaming services—underscoring the dissolution of his once-exclusive contract with Tidal—Jay-Z and Beyoncé shocked the world with a surprise collaborative record titled Everything is Love. And the only place you could get it was Tidal.

Somewhat surprisingly, that exclusivity didn’t last very long. While other high-profile albums have enjoyed Tidal exclusivity for weeks or, in the case of Beyoncé’s Lemonade, years, Everything is Love had a stint that lasted about 36 hours. By the time people were looking for some music to play on their Monday morning commute, Beyoncé’s and Jay-Z’s new record was available for streaming on Apple Music and Spotify Premium (available for free on Spotify on July 2)  and the only thing exclusive to Tidal was an outtake track.
