Elsewhere in Europe, America's dad Barack Obama went golfing

While President Donald Trump stumbled through Europe shoving foreign leaders and showing off his wife's $51,500 coat, former president Barack Obama is off in Scotland enjoying a leisurely round of golf. 

Per The Guardian, America's dad played a round at the Old Course at St. Andrews ahead of a charity dinner in Edinburgh, where he was set to address attendees. Obama arrived in Europe on Thursday, flying into Berlin to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel before heading to Scotland on Friday. 

He is, almost certainly, having a better time than his successor. Fore! Read more...

Republicans claim 1st Amendment right to send you robo-voicemails

You might start getting many more voicemails if Republicans get their wish.

A marketing company called All About the Message recently petitioned the Federal Communications Commission for a ruling that would prevent anti-robocall rules from being applied to "the delivery of a voice message directly to a voicemail box" without ringing the recipient's phone. These ringless voicemails are already happening, but their legal status is unclear.

That petition was filed in March, and last week the Republican National Committee (RNC) asked the Federal Communications Commission to approve the petition. The petition asks the FCC "to declare that the delivery of a voice message directly to a voicemail box does not constitute a call that is subject to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act ('TCPA') and its implementing rules," the RNC wrote. "The RNC supports this clarification, which is consistent with the language of the TCPA."

Florida GOP consultant admits he worked with Guccifer 2.0, analyzing hacked data

A Florida GOP campaign consultant who runs a blog under a pseudonym directly contacted the hackers behind the breach of the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and he solicited material from them. The Wall Street Journal reports that Aaron Nevins set up a Dropbox account specifically for “Guccifer 2.0” to drop files into, and he received 2.5 GB of data from the Democratic Party breaches—including the “get out the vote” strategy for congressional candidates in Florida.

Nevins analyzed the data and posted his analysis on his blog, HelloFLA.com. Guccifer 2.0 sent a link to the blog to Trump backer Roger Stone, who told the paper he was also in communication with the hackers. Nevins told the Journal that the hackers didn't understand what they had until he explained the data's value.

Some of the most valuable data, Nevins said, was the Democratic Party's voter turnout models. “Basically, if this was a war, this is the map to where all the troops are deployed,” Nevins told the person or persons behind the Guccifer 2.0 account via Twitter. He also told them, “This is probably worth millions of dollars."

Apple’s lack of daycare isn’t an oversight, it’s a feature

After WIRED offered us all a peek into Apple’s new headquarters, one notable fact emerged: there’s no daycare center. Whooooopsie. 

Except this was no mistake. It was a big fat message to anyone who might be contemplating trying to balance family life with their obsessive devotion to their job. And that message reads, in the sleekest font imaginable, “nope.”

The 150-acre campus contains a huge fitness and wellness center and every other amenity you can possibly imagine. Basically everything you’d need to live your life at work. Unless, of course, your life includes children.

Kids are many things, but mostly they are messy. That goes against Apple’s whole vision of how the world should be — and it’s a vision that most of Silicon Valley shares. I’m not talking about being physically messy, though sticky children don’t exactly coordinate with Apple’s pristine white glass aesthetic.  Read more...
