Sonicwrecks, thank you so much for sharing! Much respect, it was a tight race. :)
This looks insanely good.
I know it's probably very in handy when you look at "Top Users" at the bottom of the site and it doesn't count for contests, but News Bonus doesn't even show when you click on user profiles. I was wondering if it's intentional or a bug.
Spam is a problem, yeah. I reckon Newsboiler sites don't have good enough of a spam protection? It must suck to manually black-list the domains.
I don't know if anyone else has these problems, but the site is pretty sluggish for me recently. Submitting is slower than before.
Also, I'm not sure if it's intentional or not, but "News Bonus" is not working properly. It shows 0 despite some stories going over 100.
A pretty interesting article, I might just pick April's issue of NG to check it out.
This needs to happen.
Now this is fanboy bickering turned up to eleven.
Why? It really looks nice and it's the biggest design change in recent years.
Looks like they're not willing to give Verizon not even an inch more of the market.
Lol, they really hurt themselves with that scandal.
It's nice that they are trying because I feel "News feed" killed Facebook in a way. Nowadays, people rather consume than create content on Facebook and it lost its community aspects.
I believe there's life beyond Earth, beyond our solar system. Quite often I wonder how would a civilisation far more advanced than human look. We have books, movies and similar, but that's all just our projections. Can it be alien if it's a product of our minds? I expect real aliens to look nothing like we imagined.
High bandwith interface to the brain? By the sound of it, there would be some serious surgery involved.
I'm really liking the design and color schemes, but I'll miss the "home" button.
Pffft, I have that much in my PC. Granted, it's already over 4 years old.
This has Elon Musk written all over it haha.
The slightly curved screen of Samsung S7 Edge is one of the more interesting design choices I've seen in the last few years. I hope it's making a comeback this iteration as well.
It certainly has the potential to be a gamechanger, but it's still far away from realization. Just like VR (and 3D before), I think there'll be a decent amount of people who won't be able to experience it without side-effects.
I gotta agree, but even with money out of the picture I still believe there would be fake news, because it's propaganda used to push idealogies and beliefs. Propaganda costs, it doesn't directly make money and isn't meant to make profits in itself. It creates a milieu which can then be used to one's benefit.
Fake news and the spreading of falsehoods can't be stopped without super strict moderation, which is unfeasible on social media with so many users. The only way would be to block domains, but the problem is even reputable sources dabble in fake news due to poor research.
We should focus more on educating people about critical thinking and researching to determine what holds and what doesn't. This applies to journalists too, they've gotten very lazy as well.
