Google keeps blacklists of sites and has targeted conservative news sites and blogs’ claims report

Google is secretly blacklisting certain sites to prevent them appearing in search results – despite publicly denying doing so – according to an investigation. The Wall Street Journal report claims that the search giant has been blacklisting certain spam sites since the early 2000s, as well as those featuring child abuse or copyright infringement, to prevent them appearing in search results. The newspaper also reported that conservative publications have been blacklisted in Google News, and said that it had seen documents to support this claim, fuelling cries of political bias. Right-wing websites The Gateway Pundit and The United West included on a list of hundreds of websites that wouldn’t appear in Google News or featured products – although they could appear in organic search results, it said. The WSJ compared Duckduckgo (right) and Google (left) autocomplete results in Joe Biden and other terms.

How to use the Shop feature on Instagram to buy products

If you are a frequent Instagram user, chances are you may have noticed some posts in your feed with a small shopping bag icon, tucked in the lower left-hand corner.  This is Instagram’s Shop feature, which includes products offered by hundreds of brands and retailers across the world — and it’s a wise investment from the social media platform.   Analysts told Business Insider that Instagram’s move to shopping will be so successful that it will generate $10 billion in revenue by 2021. Using the Shop feature is easy, too. Any post with a shopping bag icon has a product or products linked to it — just tap on the product name, and you’re taken to the description page where you can save it for later, or buy it now.  Some products are available to purchase without even leaving the app, while others take you to the retailer’s website to finalize the transaction.  Some retailers partner with Instagram to provide a check-out process within the app. Most of those retailers are featured on Instagram’s @shop account.  Instagram’s @shop account features many retailers that have items available for purchase on the app. Meira Gebel/Business Insider 2....

Apple’s newest tablet is a bit of a curiosity. Especially when the company already has two very capable tablets: the iPad Pro is a productivity beast while the iPad Air is more for leisure browsing. The just-announced iPad is Apple’s latest entry-level tablet. It’s more than $100 cheaper than the iPad Air and, depending on which model you get, at least $1,000 less than an iPad Pro. I’m leading with the price of the iPad, because, to be blunt, that’s its greatest advantage over the other iPads. Yes, it has a larger 10.2″ display and it can use a  Smart Keyboard, but other than those two things, this new iPad is just an upsized 6th Gen iPad. It has the same A10 chip, the same 128GB max storage, the same 8mp camera. It’s just bigger. When you look at it side-by-side with the iPad Air, it’s hard to justify not paying the extra $170 for the...
