Missed it a couple days ago we released well I thought it was I thought it was a really good video released this video it was early in the morning he was called Mark Zuckerberg needs to leave Facebook it was about some very serious privacy violations going on right now with Facebook if you missed that video definitely go watch it for some reason when we posted it that day in fact we posted this video twice YouTube was having a bunch of different issues no one saw it if you missed it it's linked below well that brings me back to the Cambridge analytic a scandal from

Earlier this year and a certain promise that Facebook made you might remember all the way back in May Facebook made quite the announcement quite the promise they said they're gonna be releasing a brand new feature called clear history that will allow book users to be able to clear the browsing history connected to their Facebook profile so that Facebook would no longer link users to the apps and websites they visited off of the platform so whatever you did whatever you visited whatever apps you use when you weren't using Facebook that Facebook

Was still tracking you could go ahead use this feature clear all of that out and now months and months and months later we still got nothing we've heard nothing about this feature we haven't seen it it's just like it's like air power pretty much at this point who knows maybe air power and clear history will be released at the same time according to a statement from David baser who I guess is the head of Facebook's Privacy product team he made a statement to recode where he said it's taking longer than we initially had thought we did underestimate how long

This would take we will deliver the product for testing by spring of 2019 yeah well I don't I doubt it I really really doubt it David BAE's err that is your real name see your browsing history speaking of Liars let's talk about AT&T it seems that they want to bring 5g to the people and by bring 5g to the people I mean lie to the people so this isn't the first time we've seen this whole thing from AT&T where they're going to lie about 5g but it's getting close to them with that AT&T is going to start showing some Android users on their devices a 5ge icon on their screens do

Not be full I repeat do not be fooled this is not not 5g ain't it the 5ge icon actually stands for 5g evolution which if you remember from like a year or probably actually probably more than a year ago we heard about 18 T's 5g evolution which is not 5g it's fake 5g it's like real fast 4G LTE with a different name obviously a certain name that is meant to fool certain people so listen we're gonna seeing this very soon and when you start to see phones with 5ge on it know that it's not 5g and it's actually just a freaking lie what I'm

Worried about here is like not for people like us right like people if you're watching this show you probably know enough right you probably you aren't clueless and you can tell you know it's not real 5g the average consumer though people that are not subscribed to this YouTube channel people that are thought down in the comment section of this video they will have no idea and they are going to fall for the marketing they're gonna be willing to pay for phones because it's the future 5g but ladies and gentlemen you need to

Help them out it's like an old lady they trying to get her groceries to the car you got a friend help these average consumers be like listen I know what you're thinking but it's not what you're thinking it's actually a lie they lying to your face and you were stupid alright so again speaking of Lies let's talk about this report right that we've been hearing about iPad pros bending in manufacturing like I've had pros shipping to consumers already bent and then Apple claiming it's normal it's normal for this to happen but don't worry the product still

Works fine so you're good it's normal it's cool well you might remember yesterday that actually the last like 48 hours there's been a ton of articles about this like this one and this one and this one about this one and this one and this one and well whether or not you were actually paying attention all of those reports all of those articles actually stem back to one single article and this is something that we hear from page tech have been very wary about recently we've been trying to tell what articles are like just duplicates of one article like actually tracing it back to

The original thing the original source article from this is the verge so the headline on this article from the verge is Apple confirm some iPad pros ship slightly bent but says it's normal now the source of all of this is the verge because according to them Apple talked to them Apple confirmed only with the verge that yes some are shipping bent but it's normal everything works fine they work fine they're still super fast now I know we cover this on yesterday's episode so let me refresh your memory if you don't remember

What I said or if you never saw it let me help you verge historically has away with headlines I looked all through that article and there is nowhere in there a direct quote from Apple like not apples words directly just the Verge's interpretation of whatever Apple said to them so this is very very stupid but I'm just gonna hope that Apple did not say something this frakkin stupid and the verge just sort of played it up for the article so before I absolutely ripped into Apple over this

I obviously questioned the verge and the authenticity of that article I also tweeted this I said I'm gonna go ahead and call out the verge on this one Apple is in the wrong but the way the verge frames this article makes Apple seem very stupid almost too stupid and then in a tweet following that I say I have no doubt that Apple confirmed this issue to the verge but without providing an actual statement from Apple word for word the verge then controls the entire narrative of the article and I'm just questioning the framing of it I mean let's be honest right even if you

Absolutely hate Apple doesn't that seem a little too dumb for Apple to say something like yeah they bent summer shipping vent but it's normal it's okay it works fine doesn't that seem a little freaky to you like even if you hate Apple doesn't that seem obviously too stupid for them to say and you know what I've been following the verge pretty closely the past few weeks since the PewDiePie stuff has been going on and ever since their how to build a computer article I've had questions for the verge and I've been paying very close attention so again looking at this

Article I have no doubt that in some form the verge communicated with Apple there was something between them most likely Apple did confirm this and say yeah some units are shipping vent a small number of units of shipping bent that's up I mean that sounds like something Apple would say but I think the verge shifted the narrative and made their own context around this story I think they framed it the way they wanted to and not exactly with what Apple told them and that is why we did not get an there is no quote in this entire article no exact quote from Apple verbatim word

For word none of that and if you talk to Apple wouldn't you get a statement to put in your article see I think Apple in some way may have communicated with the verge probably maybe even off the record and what we got here who was the verge shifting and using their own liberty their own freedoms to shift the narrative of this article and give us something that is really good for clicks and shareability because as you saw a lot of other sites picked this up because this is a very very enticing article it makes Apple seem very very stupid but that's not it today we also

Got actual emails from Apple so we're hard to get one step ahead of the verge the verge didn't even give us a statement directly from Apple with these emails we have not only a statement but a name dan Riccio senior vice president of hardware engineering at Apple basically clarified this now let me be clear and transparent here right now with you earlier this morning one of our viewers actually emailed me a copy of an email that he had from dan so I had a copy of one of these emails earlier this morning but I sat on it I wanted to wait to see how this went and see if we got

Any more information on this store well 9 to 5 Mac also got a copy of an email it looks to be pretty similar very similar actually but they're different in just a couple areas and 95 Mac is not the only one like Dan seemed to have sent emails out to a few people and they're they're all they vary in slight ways but they say the same thing now in a few of those emails Dan starts out by basically saying regarding Apple statement on this issue let me clarify the media report that you referenced took a background conversation included quotes from that in their story this was

Not a company statement and we will be reaching out to outlets to comment on this officially later today of course also in those emails he goes on and on about how great the iPad is like relative to the issue you referenced regarding the new iPad pro its unibody design meets or exceeds all of Apple's high quality standards of design decision manufacture okay Dan whatever I don't care great the iPad is there any of that just know what I'm worried about right now what I'm worried about is this article again from the verge at this point I'm gonna come out and say you

Know what not just from the verge from any tech blogs if they say they have a statement from any company and failed to provide that statement do not trust it at surface level I get it the verge especially is very reputable has been reputable but lately I've started to question some of their articles and this is one of those articles is one of those times so again I believe they did communicate with Apple in some way however I believe the framing of this article was made specifically in the Verge's favor to make Apple look a little bit too dumb and get clicks and

Attention to the verge because you know it's box box owns the verge as what box does so once again it appears that I was right and you know what I'm willing to be wrong and I want to be wrong on this verge I want to trust you so here's what I say give us a statement if you really talk to Apple give us word for word a quote from them an actual statement from them where they said exactly what you said in the article exactly how you framed your article do that and if you can provide that I will remove this episode I will delete this episode from existence I'll

Delete it tomorrow I don't give a prove to us that you had actual verbatim word for word statements from Apple that said exactly what you said they said in your article if you can't do that I got more questions for you give us a statement just prove prove prove that they said what you said they said
