1. I miss the old Kanye.

“Throughout their conversation, Darden says Kanye professed his love for Donald Trump, explaining that he “reached out to Obama for years and couldn’t get anything done, but Trump gave me a meeting.” When Darden questioned the legitimacy of that meeting, saying he allowed Trump to merely exploit him for a photo op, Kanye said Trump is just busy.”


2. Harley Davidson sure knows how to run an internship program

“Harley Davidson, a motorcycle company struggling to connect with young people, just announced what sounds like a dream internship for any college student. Eight lucky millennials will get free motorcycles and riding lessons so they can travel around the country social media-ing the shit out of their Harley.”


3. Atari VCS is the retro-gaming console you need

“Modeled after the classic 2600 console, the Atari VCS — formerly known as the Ataribox — is far more than just another retro-gaming cash grab. While exact specs are still unknown, it is clear that the VCS will have capabilities beyond playing 2600 and 5200 games, as apps for major video and music streaming services are planned, as is an open Linux-based OS. Another hint to its true intentions lies in the preview image, which shows both a classic single-button joystick and a fully modern, dual analog stick controller. Pricing is yet to be announced, but pre-orders are expected to open soon.”

4. This house on Mount Maigmo is a modern dream 

“Built from natural stone and concrete, the House on Mount Maigmo is a partially sunken, mostly hidden abode. A tunnel-like main volume connects the front and rear of the house, framing views of the titular hill on the former and the 16th-century Tibi reservoir on the latter. The hallway-like space holds the kitchen and dining areas, while a small staircase to one side connects with the bedroom and airy bathroom.”


5. Canada is all for the ‘Delete Facebook’ movement 

“The increasing privacy concerns stemming from the Facebook and Cambridge Analytica scandal have prompted many users to start a ‘Delete Facebook’ movement. In fact, according to a new study, the burgeoning movement is actually stronger in Canada — where over 620,000 people were affected in Cambridge Analytica data breach — than it is in many other countries.
