Reviews Rashomon: Plumber Remembers Yelp Threat That Never Actually Occurred

3 days agoMedia / New Media : Screenwerk

Yelp has been accused of manipulating local reviews to “blackmail” business owners into advertising on the site.

Beyond this belief — and related claims in unsuccessful litigation against the company — I have never seen actual evidence that Yelp does […]

“Open That Set-Top Box“

. Later this month, the FCC will hear a proposal that would put an end to your cable carrier’s costly and regressive monopoly on the set-top boxes that you’re allowed to use.

Apple Car Challenges: Sobering Thoughts

2 weeks agoMedia / New Media : Monday Note

Credit: Jannik Selz / Unsplash Horace Dediu sobered me up. Last year, my initial skepticism of Apple’s rumored car project gave way to more hopeful thoughts.
