The Supreme Court says consumers can suck Apple for having monopolized the App Store
. In a 5-4 decision, Supremes was determined that consumers could continue with a class case.
Problem : Apple's cost app makers make a 30% commission on each app sale, while allowing developers to sell their apps on Apple devices outside of the App Store. People Appeal Apple says the company effectively transfers the 30% fee to customers who have no choice but to buy apps on the App Store.
Apple's argument : The tech giant said that customers were not "direct buyers" from Apple, but rather from the app producers themselves ̵
What this decision means : Now the lawsuit can move forward in the courts. It could potentially open Apple up to a class setting settlement or app solution for selling apps for its devices.
The Big Picture : The App Store estimates billions in revenue for Apple, so Apple has a lot to lose here.

YouTube's newest, far-right, foul-mouthed, red pill star is a 14 year old girl
The future is here and I don't like it.
"Soph" has become a rising star with over 800,000 followers, in the universe of conspiracy theorists, racists and demagogues who owe their big blow to YouTube.  The thing is, "Soph" is 14. Here's how the reporter Joe Bernstein describes one of her videos: "A cherubic white girl wondering about Islamic dress while speaking hundreds of thousands of supporters of Muslim rape beds," social justice "homos, and the evil that George Soros performed – under the thin shadow of edgy internet comedy.
