iPhone : This story has been 6 months in the making. It started with a question: What happened inside Facebook over the last 3 years, and what did top executives, Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg, do in the wake of crisis after crisis battering the company? nytimes.com/2018/11/14/tec…

Twitter Lite : Apple loaned me a new iPad Pro a couple of days ago (I was on vacation earlier), so I haven’t had ample time to do a review. But FWIW I think it’s a big step toward replacing a laptop. The keyboard is much better, but I still don’t like typing on it.

Twitter Lite : It’s fascinating that virtually no one has called for Mark Zuckerberg to be ousted after all that’s happened. Farhad Manjoo is spot on nytimes.com/2018/11/01/tec…
