The Face Mask Exempt Card con and the group behind it

The Face Mask Exempt Card con and the group behind it

There's a printable "Face Mask Exempt Card" out in the wild that the official United States Department of Justice just called out. The card looks semi-legitimate, especially if the person showing the card has a laminating machine - but it's absolutely unofficial an unenforceable in any legal capacity.

Google COVID-19 informational website launch delayed

Google COVID-19 informational website launch delayed

There has been some confusion in the past days on what Google will and will not be doing with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. It did not, for example, build a website that would screen for people eligible to take a test. That was actually from its sister company Verily, though some people may still have difficulty separating Google from its parent, Alphabet. The tech giant, however, does have a website planned but it is now clarifying that it won't be launching until some time later this week.

Verily COVID-19 website will screen eligible testing candidates

Verily COVID-19 website will screen eligible testing candidates

Staying at home and social distancing are good measures to prevent further spreading the COVID-19 coronavirus but it is only a stopgap measure. One important weapon against the disease is actually knowing who is infected to be able to give them proper care and stop the virus from contaminating others. Resources for testing, both kits and healthcare workers carrying out the procedures, are spread thin. To help at least whittle down potential candidates to eligible recipients, Alphabet's Verily subsidiary is launching an online tool to help screen for high-risk individuals in San Francisco.

Wish Review (website and app): Buyer Beware

Wish Review (website and app): Buyer Beware

This week we're having a peek at the shopping website and app called Wish (that is, Wish dot com, or Wish.com) for products of all sorts. This site brings heat to the feet of Amazon with a wide variety of products that appear to be extremely well priced and organized extremely well. I must note here that I'm not reviewing any of the products that come from the site and/or app, but the process of visiting the site or app itself - therein lies the rub.

They can simply visit a PayPal.me link, sign in, choose the amount to pay, and hit send.

Evernote updates web app with cleaner, faster interface

Evernote mentions that it's not trying to replicate the experience of its already existing desktop apps, but it also seems to be more than a little inspired by the editor from web writing platform Medium.
