Instagram head: Here's why Facebook shouldn't be broken up

Instagram head Adam Mosseri rejected the notion that Facebook should be split up, claiming that doing so would hurt the social networks' ability to fight election fraud and other big issues.

...

Speaking at Code Conference, Mosseri noted that there are more people at Facebook working on integrity and safety at Facebook than all the people working on Instagram. "If you split us up you would cut that off," he said.

So the reason not to break up Facebook is because they're working on integrity and safety... There's very no integrity to how they monetize users – it just feels buzzwords and toeing the company line.

As for fighting election fraud, stop taking money from any politicians and ban political adverts. If it means that much to you, stop looking at it as a revenue stream and accept it for what it is: a big problem.

More of on improving Facebook.

The 10 candidates in the running to replace Theresa May

The current crop of politicians are ruining the company in every way possible, so in reality I wouldn't want any of them to replace Theresa May. Depresingly, there's no real opposition either given the Labour's confusing stance on our EU membership.

Of the 10, Rory Stewart seems the most sensible choice, and by quite some distance.

Apple Watch can display Apple ID verification codes in watchOS 6

This is a nice update and one of those things that makes you wonder why it hasn't always been an option. Two factor authentication is great but for me I often see the codes on the device I'm trying to grant access too which is far from ideal.
