Young Girl Mistakes Water Heater For A Robot And It’s Adorable

It’s an age-old story: Girl meets water heater, thinks it’s a robot and falls in love. Actually, it’s not that age-old ― it’s the basic plot of a YouTube video called,  “Rayna meets a ‘robot’” that is surely going viral as you read this. In the video, a toddler sees a discarded water heater on the street, and gives it a friendly, “Hi wobot!” You can see how she might get that idea. A panel on the top does kind of look like eyes, and the tank is about the right size for a girl to try to hug. Rayna repeatedly says, “Hi wobot!” but ― spoiler alert ― the robot doesn’t respond (maybe, it’s shy)

The Hidden Breakthrough In Apple’s New Video App

By Margaret Rhodes for WIRED . You may be tempted to compare Clips, Apple’s new mobile video app, to Snapchat and Instagram. When it appears in the App Store next month, the slick new app will feature filters, stickers, and a press-to-record UI that makes it easy to capture, edit, and share snippets of video.

Google Boycott Expands After “Ad Scandal”

Major UK firms have pulled advertising from Google’s YouTube platform after discovering their brands were appearing alongside videos promoting terrorism and other inappropriate content. The decision by Sky, Vodafone, HSBC, Lloyds, and the Royal Bank of Scotland to suspend their ads follows the same action last week by other brands including L’Oreal, Audi, Sainsbury’s, the BBC, and The Guardian. Advertisers are rightfully aggrieved. Ads for The Guardian’s membership scheme have been placed alongside extremist material after an agency acting on the media group’s behalf used AdX, a Google-owned programmatic trading platform. Programmatic advertising is an efficient way to reach specific audiences online, but it can also risk some ads inadvertently appearing next to undesirable content if proper safety checks, such as whitelists or blacklists, are not put in place by both the ad platform and the ad buyer. Brands Unwittingly Funding Extremists Brand ads appearing on inappropriate places online is not a new phenomenon. The issue was pushed into the spotlight after an investigation by The Times  in February found several big brand ads, including Mercedes-Benz, Waitrose and Marie Curie, appeared on hate sites and YouTube videos created by supporters of terrorist groups such as Islamic State and Combat 18, a violent pro-Nazi faction

Germany Considers Fining Social Media Sites For Hate Speech, Fake News

Germany is considering a crackdown on illegal social media content, including fake news stories, with threats to fine offenders up to $53 million if the lawbreaking material isn’t promptly removed. According to a law proposed Tuesday by German Justice Minister Heiko Maas, social media sites would be required to staff 24-hour helplines that would respond to user complaints flagging criminal content. The proposal could apply to hate speech, which Germany bans as criminal content, and to fake news articles if they’re slanderous, defamatory or libelous, Maas said, according to the BBC.  Anything deemed “obviously criminal” would have to be deleted or blocked within 24 hours, while less-glaring complaints would have to be resolved within seven days.  The proposal comes just one week after a Syrian refugee living in Germany lost a lawsuit against Facebook that sought the removal of a photo that wrongly identified him as a terrorist.

How Brianna Wu Went From Gamergate Victim To Congressional Candidate

Last week, Brianna Wu woke up to find a rock sitting on her living room floor, surrounded by shards of glass from the window it was thrown through. Sadly, for Wu, a video game designer and Head of Development at Giant Spacekat , this is nothing new. For almost three years, Wu has been the target of malicious abuse and harassment, predominantly online. In August 2014, Wu, along with other women in the video game industry like  Anita Sarkeesian and Zoë Quinn , became a target of the Gamergate controversy , in which some of the internet’s worst trolls unintentionally exposed the misogynist underbelly of the gaming community and its hostility toward women and minorities .  Gamergate was sparked after a smear campaign, led by Quinn’s ex-boyfriend, resulted in vicious online attacks against Quinn. Wu and Sarkeesian, who were both outspoken critics of the treatment of women in video games themselves and within the gaming industry, became targets soon after.  What at first looked like disagreement about the culture of the gaming community quickly revealed itself as a thriving microcosm of misogyny and rape culture: Wu, Sarkeesian and Quinn were (and continue to be) threatened with rape and murder, stalked, doxxed, and harassed.  The women found little to no support from law enforcement.
