    Brexit-backing hedge fund manager loses £125m because of Brexit

    A Brexit-backing hedge fund manager personally lost £125m last year as his pessimistic bets on the UK economy went wrong. Crispin Odey was one of the most prominent supporters of the Leave campaign, donating more than £870,000 to pro-Brexit groups. He also bet huge amounts of money on the UK economy tanking in the aftermath of a Leave vote. So far, it has held up better than expected.

    The Magic of the Ugliest and Most Hated Porsche 911

    The more and more automotive journalists and PR people you talk to, the clearer it becomes that half of them already have some sort a Porsche 911, with the other half wanting to have one, often quite badly. The enthusiasts' love for these stubbornly rear-engined sports cars knows no bounds, except perhaps when it comes to the 996 generation, built from 1997 to 2005.

    'Oldest human' dies in Indonesia 'aged 146'

    The Indonesian man who claimed to be 146 years old - the longest living human ever - has died in his village in Central Java. According to his papers, Sodimedjo, also known as Mbah Ghoto (grandpa Ghoto), was born in December 1870. But Indonesia only started recording births in 1900 - and there have been mistakes before. Yet officials told the BBC his papers were valid, based on documents he provided and interviews with him.

    We Can’t Let John Deere Destroy the Very Idea of Ownership

    IT’S OFFICIAL: JOHN Deere and General Motors want to eviscerate the notion of ownership. Sure, we pay for their vehicles. But we don’t own them. Not according to their corporate lawyers, anyway. In a particularly spectacular display of corporate delusion, John Deere—the world’s largest agricultural machinery maker —told the Copyright Office that farmers don’t own their tractors. Because computer code snakes through the DNA of modern tractors, farmers receive “an implied license for...

    Apple fanboys cited as Merriam-Webster herds ‘sheeple’ into dictionary

    “Wake up!” the good folks a Merriam-Webster just tweeted. “Sheeple is in the dictionary now.” And while the induction of such casual slang is sure to offend some, none will likely take great umbrage than Apple zealots, whose zealotry is cited by the dictionary as an example of the proper use of the word. First the definition from Merriam-Webster’s website: “people who are docile, compliant, or easily influenced: people likened to sheep.” And the second of two examples...

    Palantir’s Relationship With America’s Spies Has Been Worse Than You’d Think

    Palantir Technologies, the Silicon Valley data company co-founded by billionaire investor Peter Thiel, has developed an almost mythical reputation for its work building tools for the U.S. intelligence community. But Palantir has had a far rockier relationship with the nation’s top spy agencies than its image would let on, BuzzFeed News has learned. As of summer 2015, the Central Intelligence Agency, a signature client, was “recalcitrant” and didn’t “like us,” while Palantir’s relat...

    Don't Buy Animal Abuse: Boycott These Tourist Attractions

    Be kind to animals by avoiding these wildlife tourist attractions. Sometimes animal and wildlife tourist attractions are disguised as natural, helpful, or worse - as conservation, when in reality they're just masked exploitation and mistreatment, and even animal-loving tourists may not be aware of the underlying misery involved, and unknowingly pay for and support cruel practices.

    Ford's new room-sized 3D printer upends additive manufacturing as we know it

    Like nearly every automaker, Ford is keen to figure out how 3D printing can improve its ability to develop and build new cars. Additive manufacturing holds the promise of shorter lead times, increased customization and lighter weight parts, among other efficiencies. Unsurprisingly, there's a lot of blue-sky thinking out there, and still not a ton of actionable data. But that's changing, including at the Ford Motor Company, which has an impressive new tool in its arsenal, the Stratasys ...

    Ticket touts face unlimited fines for using 'bots' to buy in bulk

    Touts who use computer software to harvest concert tickets in bulk and resell them at vast mark-ups face unlimited fines as part of a crackdown on highly profitable resale sites such as Viagogo, StubHub and GetMeIn. The Department of Culture, Media and Sport will announce a package of measures to curb the growing power of the so-called “secondary ticketing” industry, which now regularly offers tickets at huge mark-ups, even before they are available to the general public.
