The Divide Between Silicon Valley and Washington Is a National-Security Threat by an author (The Atlantic)
In the past year, Google executives, citing ethical concerns, have canceled an artificial-intelligence project with the Pentagon and refused to even bid on the Defense Department’s Project JEDI, a desperately needed $10 billion IT-improvement program. While stiff-arming Washington, Google has been embracing Beijing, helping the Chinese government develop a more effective censored search engine despite outcries from human-rights groups, American politicians, and, more recently, its own employees.

Apple has added features to iOS to make it easier for parents to control their kids app and media purchases. Amazon in contrast if is fighting the FTC over adding these controls to their fire devices.

Why? Just think about where these companies are making their money. Apple from the devices themselves, Amazon from selling stuff. No wonder Amazon is fighting this, and Apple is just trying to make families want to be all Apple devices. Ben Brooks

There isn’t a clear cut line here either. Dark text on a light back­ground cer­tain­ly isn’t a unique design, nor are red links 3 , but the com­bi­na­tion of all the ele­ments as Type­Engine has screen­shot­ted can hard­ly be looked at as any­thing other than Sam­sung, I mean copy­ing, Copy­ing.

I’m a subscriber to the Magazine and I want Marco to succeed. However, I also want more compelling digital magazines – the Magazine is the only one I’ve found that’s worthy of my money – and TypeEngine may help enable that.
