Available in silver with Darth Vader or green with the empire symbol, the mugs are made of stainless steel and plastic. However, they are not compatible with the heat from dishwashers, microwaves, and lava — so we would advise against taking them on trips to Mustafar. Read more...

Tesla gets testy over story about a new harassment lawsuit

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 10/19/2017 - 20:21

Tesla has once again found itself facing an onslaught of news stories about discrimination lawsuits filed against the company. 

The wave began earlier this week, when The Mercury News reported that three black former Tesla factory employees had filed a lawsuit against the company, alleging racial discrimination. Then, on Thursday, The Guardian reported that another ex-factory employee filed a lawsuit against the company alleging he was harassed for being gay and the company did little to protect him.

The men in the first lawsuit — Owen Diaz, Demetric Diaz, and Lamar Patterson — allege other employees used racial slurs to harass them. When they complained about the alleged racism, the men say they were demeaned and faced threats to their employment. Read more...

Anyone can buy online ads and track your location in real time

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 10/19/2017 - 20:10

Online advertising has been accused of meddling in the 2016 presidential election, maliciously sowing fears about immigrants, and enabling potential ad buyers to single out antisemites. It turns out, however, that the creepiness inherent in an ad targeting system capable of tracking digital movements on an individual level is just getting started.

In a recently published paper, researchers at the University of Washington demonstrate that practically anyone can spend a little cash and track, in relatively real time, the location of a human target. That's digital surveillance, made available to any and all with money on hand, brought to the masses by your friendly neighborhood Silicon Valley disrupters.  Read more...

Today in pettiness: Dude sues airline for not serving authentic Champagne

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 10/19/2017 - 20:05

As a man who just adores Edith Piaf has no doubt informed you, the term "Champagne" refers to a sparkling wine that comes from the Champagne region of France. 

You are probably also aware that people often refer to all sparkling wine as "Champagne" — kind of a Kleenex/tissue scenario. One man, however, took such issue with this colloquialism that he decided to sue an airline for using it.

SEE ALSO: The stores of the future will be full of wine, yoga, and not much else

Per the BBC, Daniel MacDuff has elected to sue Sunwing Airlines for advertising a "Champagne service" when, in fact, he was served a cheaper sparkling wine instead. 1,600 other patrons have joined his class-action lawsuit. Read more...
