Uber is adding new safety features into the app. This is good for customers! And some of the features—like identifying phones and cars with high-frequency sounds—are super cool. But it’s also important for Uber. They disrupted the norms and culture of transportation, and lots of bad things happened along the way. They need to fix that, and of course they are still trying to rebrand from the crazy days when the company was run like a pirate ship.

Alibaba has called off its listing on the Hong Kong stock exchange. Yes, it’s partly because of the instability. But it’s also just a way to please Beijing.

The old automatic is a teal-colored Mr. Coffee, the 900-watt JWX36T, and left to its own devices it splatters water in a straight line across the circle of grounds in the filter basket, pretty much missing anything that’s not directly in its path. This is bad.
