The value of internet celebrity is hard to assess, but a new motion filed by the owners of the animal star known as Grumpy Cat seeks to do just that. In it, the holders of the “GRUMPY CAT” trademark have asked a court to triple a requested $600,000 award over alleged copyright infringement of a goddamn cat.

User Interface design Thought for the Day: If you're blaming the users for problems they're having using your UI, you're badly fooling yourself.

One of them is lying. My money is on serial liar Trump.
The Republican nominee said they did not discuss financing for a border wall, but his host said later that he made it clear that Mexico would not pay.

Both are liars? That's a stupid comment. There is no shade of grey on this. Either they DID talk about it, or they DIDN'T. There's no way both are lying.

American officials say Mr. Assange and WikiLeaks probably have no direct ties to Russian intelligence services. But the agendas of WikiLeaks and the Kremlin have often dovetailed.

Love the way delicate electronics like smartphones are packed for shipping to maximize their ability to bang around loose inside the shipping box.

AP // The president of Mexico says Donald Trump wasn't telling the truth when he described their Wednesday conversation. Specifically, President Enrique Pe?a Nieto said that he and Trump did indeed discuss who would pay for construction of a massive wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. That's the centerpiece of Trump's immigration plan. //
