In which I ask: What could Facebook do for news? (After asking the same of Google.)
My bottom line: Facebook can help news organizations build better relationships with the individuals and communities they serve, resulting in greater relevance, loyalty, and value and helping the business, as I argue in Geeks Bearing Gifts. 
In two recent posts, I asked what Google could do for news — and vice versa. Now I’ll pose the question about Facebook.

Rave review of the Pixel from +Leo Laporte 
 
+Leo Laporte reviews the Chromebook Pixel (2015) on Before You Buy. The Pixel review starts at the 16:40 mark of the video. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fxJQIGfP7s

He was never a fan of the original Pixel so it's nice to see him come around and figure out what us Pixel'ers have known all along.. :)

Great! I wished the NSA and GCHQ wouldn't had ruined the cloud. For me this would be the computer. Everything I need.

OK, Google, I'm delighted there's an updated Chromebook Pixel. 
Just one question: Why no LTE?

I wonder if they could enable something like the Instant Hotspot feature that came with iOS 8 so the Chromebook would automatically connect through the phone if it didn't have a Wi-Fi signal present.

Germany has outdone itself. In its latest issue, Der Spiegel all but portrays Silicon Valley as a nest of nerdnazis. I bought the issue online so I could translate the wackiest bits here: 

https://medium.com/change-objects/translated-the-world-government-how-silicon-valley-controls-our-future-59f6ccfcc27e

I would crosspost it all here but it depends on a few illustrations. So please go read it at the link. 

A snippet:

Digitalization, you see, is not just a spectre haunting Europe but a dark force overcoming the world. Must it be stopped? We’re merely asking.

Spiegel’s editors next fret that “progress will be faster and bigger, like an avalanche:” iPhone, self-driving cars, the world’s knowledge now digital and retrievable, 70% of stock trading controlled by algorithms, commercial drones, artificial intelligence, robots. “Madness but everyday madness,” Spiegel cries. “No longer science fiction.”

What all this means is misunderstood, Spiegel says, “above all by politicians,” who must decide whether to stand by as spectators while “others organize a global revolution. Because what is happening is much more than the triumph of new technology, much more than an economic phenomenon. It’s not just about ‘the internet’ or ‘social networks,’ not about intelligence and Edward Snowden and the question of what Google does with data.” It’s not just about newspapers shutting down and jobs lost to software. We are in the path of social change, “which in the end no one can escape.” Distinct from the industrial revolution, this time “digitization doesn’t just change industries but how we think and how we live. Only this time the change is controlled centrally by a few hundred people…. They aren’t stumbling into the future, they are ideologues with a clear agenda…. a high-tech doctrine of salvation.”

In a followup to my post asking what Google could do for news, I now ask what the news business could do for Google -- and itself. The answer: reward original reporting, not repetition. 
How about a search of only original reporting?

+Jeff Jarvis, with 27 perfect matches, here's today's top contender for "Most Cloned" among newly discovered URLs.  Exact costs are not easy to tease out, but certainly ten percent of CPU (and algorithm maintenance) at http://nexcerpt.com (which I run) goes to such de-duping.  Near-matches -- the tweaked originals you described -- are a constant challenge.
