Facebook was roasted in a devastating report by British lawmakers on Monday. Among its findings, a British parliamentary committee revealed that three senior Facebook executives failed to warn CEO Mark Zuckerberg about the Cambridge Analytica data breach. It’s not the first time Zuckerberg has been accused of not having a handle on Facebook’s problems, while a former exec said last week that Facebook’s “Game of Thrones” culture could make it hard for execs to admit fault. Lawmakers said it was a “profound failure of governance.” After 18 months, 73 witnesses, 4,350 questions, and countless hours of evidence, British lawmakers delivered an excoriating verdict on Facebook’s year from hell. In one of the most comprehensive accounts of the social network’s disastrous 2018, a UK parliamentary committee published a report on Monday accusing Facebook of putting profit over privacy, misleading lawmakers, and being a “digital … [Read more...] about Mark Zuckerberg wasn’t warned about the worst crisis in Facebook’s history, and it points to something rotten in the firm’s culture
Seeking updates from letter writers from 2009 to 2013. Tell us how it all worked out. Email [email protected] with "update" in the subject line. Dear Meredith, I recently met this guy through Bumble. After several months of bad and "you're nice but I can't see this going any further" dates, this one was just wow. We had a great connection, the conversation flowed, and I didn't feel afraid to be vulnerable. He didn't seem to either. There were no red flags. Quite the opposite, actually; he seemed concerned that I would be moving in the next few months (I told him I would not be moving). He invited me to meet his friends and everything was very personal. We went on a few more dates, talked several times a day over text, and I was hopeful that this could be a good one after the myriad of previous disappointments. I got home after our last date feeling convinced this could work out. When I woke up, there was a text from him sent at 4 a.m. He had been tossing and turning, the … [Read more...] about ‘He told me he wasn’t ready for anything at all’
Lina Batarags, provided by Published 10:41 am CST, Saturday, December 15, 2018 Lina Batarags/Business Insider WatchTime New York is the biggest luxury watch show in NYC. It features exhibits by many of the biggest and most respected names in the luxury watch business, including Bovet, Montblanc, MB&F, and Breguet. I know very little (read: almost nothing) about watches, but I decided to check it out. I'll preface this by saying I know very little about watches. I have a $100 Skagen that I've been wearing every day since I got it for Christmas two years ago and that, aside from some waterproof stopwatches I wore as a teenager, is the extent of my watch ownership. But, as the executive life editor for Busines Insider, I'm fascinated by the endless trappings of luxury, even the ones on our wrists, so I decided to check out WatchTime New York, NYC's biggest luxury watch show. The late October show is a two-day day event in midtown Manhattan. This was its fourth year … [Read more...] about I went to NYC’s biggest luxury watch show, and the most memorable part wasn’t the $1.8 million diamond watch or the $182,000 piece they let me try on
