YouTube videos aimed at kids discovered to include self-harm tips

YouTube just can't get a break, which is probably nothing new for it. As the world's biggest Internet video service, YouTube carries a heavy burden in protecting its users, especially the wee ones. Sometimes it gets things right, like when it announced less harsh strikes on first-time offenders. Sometimes it gets things wrong, like when advertisers pull out over child abuse concerns. And sometimes it gets things terribly wrong, like when it lets in kids' videos that apparently have been altered to include instructions on how to harm themselves with deadly results.

Steam non-gaming video content will soon be gone

Steam non-gaming video content will soon be gone

Steam has always been about games but, in recent years, Valve has worked to expand that brand to other gaming-related products, from hardware to operating systems to videos. That last bit, however, has also grown to include some videos that stretch that association too far.

Before we go too far into this article, I need to make clear the word "rude" here isn't meant as a negative. It's meant in the sense that Lagerfeld had a way with words, one that was at once startling, sharp, and smart. And it all comes down to sweatpants.

Netflix cans The Punisher and Jessica Jones, surprising no one

Hopefully all of you fans of The Punisher enjoyed its second season, because that's the last one you're getting out of Netflix. The streaming service cancelled both The Punisher and Jessica Jones today, which means that its Marvel purge is now complete.

Apple has started sending out push notifications to Apple Music subscribers telling them that they can refer a friend and gift them a free month of service.
