Webtacular World Issue # 187, July 2, 2017

Greetings Webtaculators! The year is half way done. Yay! Here’s a tip – never travel on the Saturday of one of the busiest holidays of the year, because it may take you 7 hours to drive about 200 miles. I hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July weekend. On to the news.

STORY OF THE WEEK (no min. read)
What: Technically, Trump Tweeting
Why: Because I’m tired of this nonsense.  I’m not going to link to it, or spend much more time talking about it, because it shouldn’t be happening.

ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: The iPhone’s Decade
Why: Because the iPhone changed the way we live. I remember thinking how dumb it was that you couldn’t just press buttons to dial a number. Oops.

LAW THING OF THE WEEK (6 min. read)
What: Banned
Why: Because after being denied by multiple courts, the Supreme Court allowed Trump’s Muslim travel ban to partially go into effect until it hears the case in the fall. In slightly better (international) legal news, Germany finally got around to legalizing gay marriage.

TECH THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
