A Titanic success: how Boris Johnson inspired my viral Brexit satire

When the satirist Armando Iannucci was asked if he would make a version of his show The Thick Of It, he replied that there was no point, such was the absurdity of the reality. Yet political satire still has its place – a fact that was underlined last week when an became a viral hit, racking up more than 10 million views. Using footage from the 1997 Hollywood film Titanic, the sketch follows the demise of the passenger liner, this time captained by David Cameron with officers and Michael Gove, and an impassive Jeremy Corbyn, who plays the violin as...

Google needs to apologize for violating the trust of its users once again

An Associated Press investigation recently discovered that Google still collects its users' location data even if they have their Location History turned off. After the report was published, Google quietly updated its help page to describe how location settings work. Previously, the page said "with Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored." Now, the page says, "This setting does not affect other location services on your device," adding that "some location data may be saved as part of your activity on other services, like Search and Maps." The quiet changing of false information is a major...

A startup founder says job candidates focus on the wrong thing when negotiating their pay with startups — here's what they should look at instead

Henry Ward is the cofounder and CEO of Carta, a startup that helps other companies manage the stock options grants they've given employees. Henry Ward, cofounder and CEO of Carta, says tech workers make a common mistake in evaluating job offers from startups. Those offers are typically heavy weighted toward stock options or other kinds of ownership stakes, rather than cash salaries. Job candidates tend to focus too much on how much those grants are worth in the near term and not enough on what they could be worth in the future, he says. Options can offer a huge payoff...

Airlines are using these 5 planes to replace the Boeing 747 jumbo jet

A Lufthansa Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental jumbo jet. The Boeing 747 jumbo jet's days as a passenger plane are numbered.

Wall Street analysts were blown away by the Tesla Model 3's 'next-gen, military-grade' tech — and say that's why the base model will never turn a profit

UBS analysts disassembled a Tesla Model 3 to compare it with other electric vehicles. "Tesla delivered the best powertrain at the lowest cost," the investment bank told clients.  But the car's "next-gen, military-grade" tech is the reason the base model will never turn a profit.  Tesla has struggled to ramp up its production of the Model 3, which it has promoted as its first mass-market car. But with no $35,000 base model even available for pre-order, UBS analysts took it upon themselves to tear down a Model 3 to take a look under the hood — literally — and they...

Forget about Tesla going private — there's still time for Apple to buy the company

Apple CEO Tim Cook. Tesla CEO Elon Musk is in the middle of a go-private saga around the carmaker. Various ways to fund a potential deal have been debated, but nothing solid has yet emerged. Yet again, Apple and its pile of cash and trillion-dollar market cap could ride to the rescue. The circus maximus of  Tesla's go-private plan has been with us for about two weeks. I've already pointed out that we shouldn't be surprised that Elon Musk doesn't want to be the CEO of a public company anymore, but to be honest this thing has gotten pretty nuts....

The Enthusiast: I love Ryley Walker’s music, but his tweets? He’s a social media mastermind

I first saw Chicago musician Ryley Walker at a boutique Toronto hotel where he was playing. Having dinner, I noticed a shaggy fellow at the end of the bar. It was early – the place was empty, and the bartender had no other customers. And yet he ignored Walker completely. Walker waited patiently for a few awkward minutes before leaving, unserved, without a fuss. It bothered me. Here was a guy – a very talented guy who was playing a small show and likely making barely any money – who couldn’t get a glass of water or a beer or...
