Why am I telling you about the technology news I think you need to know? Because the other ones (like similar posts, or newsletters, or videos) sometimes either cover not enough, too much or not the right news that people need to know.
I will try to do this every week but there may be sometimes it doesn’t happen. I also try to link to as unbiased news sites as possible as to ensure you get unbiased information. I use https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/ to check the bias.
Here is what happened for the week of May 24th to 29th 2020:
White House, Trump accounts both get Twitter rulebreaker warning
Writer’s note: I almost never want to put US politics into a post like this, but many of the most popular social networks are based in the US and the policies put on social networks they can affect many people around the world.
HBO Max is live: Here’s everything you need to know (currently only for those in the US (bypass paywall), and some people can get HBO Max for free)
If you are confused on all the different HBO streaming services then HBO has explained in all in a video for you, as well as Consumer Reports has a write-up.
Interesting tech story of the week: Gatsby, Raises $28 Million (right-centre bias) “Kyle Mathews (CEO and co-founder) would not disclose Gatsby’s revenue figures, and says the firm is focused on growth and is not profitable.”
Interesting non-tech story of the week: How To Hide a COVID-19 Hotspot? Pretend Prisoners Don’t Exist (center bias)
