We drove a $393,000 Ferrari 488 Spider supercar. Here were its coolest features.

The Ferrari 488 Spider is the convertible sibling of the astonishing 488 GTB. The 488 Spider delivered an awe-inspiring driving experience and is one of the truly great modern supercars. We were also impressed by its sleek lines, melodic V8 engine, and sumptuous cabin. Our Ferrari 488 GTB test car carried an as-tested price of $393,000. The Ferrari 488 Spider is an absolute marvel of a supercar. In 2016, we drove a stunning racing red 488 GTB (it stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta) coupe. ...

Facebook reality.

Just looked at Facebook and saw this message: "9 years ago today, you and your sister, Dell, became friends on Facebook. We made you this video to celebrate your friendship!"I guess the real world doesn't matter on Facebook. It's when things begin on Facebook that matters to Facebook. And if you are "friends" within the meaning of Facebook, you have "friendship" in the only sense that matters to Facebook. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

People are wildly polarized on whether they trust Facebook

A new Survata survey seen by Business Insider shows that people are massively polarized about whether they trust Facebook or not. That's after months of scandal over Cambridge Analytica's use of Facebook data. The survey showed that Facebook ranked lower on trust than Google, YouTube, and eBay — but higher than Instagram. Survata CEO Chris Kelly said people had stronger feelings about Facebook than about Instagram, whether negative or positive. Facebook has been making a lot of moves to show...

We Don’t Need Another Hero

I Samuel 17 There is a saying, often attributed to Oscar Wilde that goes like this:  “Be yourself because everyone else is already taken.” Good advice, I think. And, I think it would have been good advice for just about everyone in today’s story too. The inauthenticity of the characters in this story gives rise to a lot of questions. For one thing, if David had been playing the harp for Saul for so long, why didn’t Saul know who he was? Or, was he pretending he didn’t know? Why were Da...

NYT: 'Firefox Is Back. It's Time to Give It a Try.'

Another high-profile endorsement for Firefox -- this time from the lead consumer technology writer for The New York Times. (Alternate link here). The web has reached a new low. It has become an annoying, often toxic and occasionally unsafe place to hang out. More important, it has become an unfair trade: You give up your privacy online, and what you get in return are somewhat convenient services and hyper-targeted ads. That's why it may be time to try a different browser. Remember Firefox...? A...

From denial to despair: Cambridge Analytica insiders describe the hectic final weeks at the embattled company

Cambridge Analytica staffers did not believe the allegations about the company until almost the very end. Two Cambridge Analytica insiders that Business Insider spoke to describe the final months at the firm before it filed for bankruptcy.

Facebook has 'no plans' to listen to your conversations for now. But the social media giant does not appear to be ruling out the possibility that at some point it might. And users keep sharing stories that make it seem like Facebook is already eavesdropping on them.            [Author: USA TODAY]

Does Facebook know enough about us to play cupid?

When Facebook announced that it would be launching a dating app, shares in Match group (which owns Tinder), immediately plunged by 22 percent — later to recover after its positive profit announcement. Clearly, investors — as yet — are undecided on whether users are going to abandon the likes of Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, and Happn in favor of the world’s most used social media platform. Bumble has already suggested they’d be open to partnering up with Facebook, while Tinder has expressed pleasure at...

Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's has advice for Facebook and Google: Don't make the mistake we did (FB, GOOG, GOOGL, MSFT)

The backlash against Silicon Valley is growing. Steve Ballmer, the former CEO of Microsoft, has some advice for the likes of Facebook and Google: Accept you've screwed up, and work with regulators to fix it. He urged them not to take the same combative approach that Microsoft took under his leadership when faced with a antitrust lawsuit.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders: VA Restaurant Kicked Me Out ‘Because I Work For POTUS’

Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me.

Elon Musk promised a Tesla 'alien dreadnought' factory — but what we got was a tent (TSLA)

Tesla CEO Elon Musk once ambitiously promised to remake auto manufacturing so thoroughly that his factories would resemble an "alien dreadnought." We recently learned that Tesla has built an assembly line for its Model 3 sedan and housed it under what Musk called a "tent" next to the company's Fremont, CA factory. Tesla has been pulling out all the stops to hit a Model 3 production rate of 5,000 Model 3's per week by the end of June — and to post a profit in the second half of 2018, after 15 y...

Hyperlocal Marketing: A Tried And True Method For Successful Online Marketing

Hope is a beautiful thing, but if you’re holding onto the dream of ranking for competitive national keywords, it’s time to let that one go. It’s not that you can’t do it; in theory, anyone can.

If you’ve been working with a marketer who says otherwise, they’ve taken you for a ride. There’s a reason cars.com, Carmax, Time Magazine, and Disney’s webpage for th...
