Trump Kicks Campaign Manager to Curb
In the famous words of Trump, “You’re Fired.” Campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who’s been one of the driving forces to getting Trump to his current political standing, has been kicked to the curb. Lewandowski was replaced by Michael Caputo… kind of. Lewandowski, who’s not been the most loved amongst his fellow campaign workers and Trump’s own children for that matter, finally got the boot due to his lack of “presidential campaign experience.”
In a tweet regarding Lewandowski’s exit, new manager Caputo made his satisfaction not so subtle — #PeaceOutLewandowski. Here’s the kicker, soon after the aforementioned tweet, Caputo himself resigned from his very brief standing as campaign manager, leaving Trump’s staff holding the bag (think Patrick Dempsey scene from Can’t Buy Me Love). As of now, a new campaign manager has not been announced. Please feel free to send us your crazy suggestions. Our favorite that would break the Intrawebs is…wait for it…Kanye West.
When the Cool Kids Are Hacked
Last week, social media king Mark Zuckerberg proved he was just like the rest of us after having several of his accounts hacked, including Pinterest and Twitter. Well, the list of hacked accounts continues with former Twitter CEO, Dick Costolo, adding to the digital list after having an old Twitter account taken over. A group called OurMine, which has claimed responsibility for the hacks, wants to “teach” people how to better secure their accounts. The group kept the hack G-rated tweeting a friendly “Hey it’s OurMine just testing your security, please contact us.” Sigh, if only all online hackers could be so nice. Reminder digital life is #Forever…What Happens in Vegas Stays on YouTube.
Google With New Symptom Checker
Checking your symptoms online when you’re sick is the fastest way for a one-way ticket to a severe anxiety attack and being crunched up on the floor in fetal position. Searching your symptoms online doesn’t have the best track record for being accurate and Google (no surprise) is “coming “in-clutch” by solving our crisis’. Over the next couple of days, Google will be unveiling a new feature called “symptom search” for iOS and Android Google apps which has been designed to show us better symptom results. 1% of searches are symptom-related and Google wanted to provide a public service by delivering more accurate search results. Hopefully, this will save you some severe embarrassment of calling your neighborhood doctor and informing them you’ve contracted yellow fever and require around the clock medical staff. Now on your resume, you can write ‘digital doctor.’
