Facebook is tweaking “Trending Topics”
The biggest social network on the planet is rethinking how it handles the service’s Trending Topics section.
As Politico reports:
“Changes include expanded oversight of that team, new training, an expanded help center and elimination of a list of specific news sites to check, the social network explained in a response to Senate Commerce Chairman John Thune, who questioned the site about the allegations earlier this month.”
Facebook has been accused in recent weeks of publishing an anti-conservative slant to its Trending Topics section.

Adonit releases the Pixel Stylus
There’s a new non-Apple Pencil stylus available from Adonit. Called the Pixel, the $79.99 device works with older devices, which cannot work with the one from Apple.
According to Macworld:
“The Pixel’s selling point is compatibility. Apple Pencil works with just the 12.9-inch and 9.7-inch iPad Pro models, while the Pixel is compatible with the iPhone 5, 6, 6 Plus, third- and fourth-gen iPads, iPad minis from 1–4, both iPad Air models, and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The Pixel doesn’t work with the little Pro just yet.”
