Supported by Books of The Times ByJennifer Szalai Jan. 16, 2019 A friend of mine says that whenever he walks into someone’s home he’s tempted to yell out, “Hey, Alexa,” or “O.K., Google,” and order 50 pizzas, just to see if there’s a device listening in on whatever gossip he planned to dish out next. Shoshana Zuboff would undoubtedly get the joke, but she probably wouldn’t laugh. In “The Age of Surveillance Capitalism,” she warns against mistaking the soothing voice of a personal digital assistant for “anything other than the exploitation of your needs.” The cliché that “if you’re not paying for it, you’re the product” isn’t alarming enough for … [Read more...] about O.K., Google: How Much Money Have I Made for You Today?

LANSING — Lifelong Lansing resident Dee Greene uses a four-letter word to describe the condition of her city's roads. The 28-year-old considers the pockmarked streets an embarrassment to Michigan's capital city, and she's not alone in that sentiment.

Nick Baumgardner Detroit Free Press Published 1:11 p.m. UTC Aug 31, 2018 It's here. Michigan football's long offseason is over. The 2018 season starts Saturday at Notre Dame. And next week, we'll have real evidence to discuss instead of hypothetical situations. For now, though, more of those in this week's Ask Nick mailbag. Q: It looks like JBB and Runyan are the tackles. How much improvement can you get with a guard shaped left tackle (that isn’t Mason Cole) — and a guy who struggled mightily in pass blocking last year? Can we expect reasonable improvement? — @mich_alumni A: Reasonable is the key phrase here and one to remember. It's also important to remember that if Shea Patterson is the type of quarterback people claim he is, then Michigan should have the ability to scheme around some of those pass protection deficiencies by moving the pocket, getting rid of the ball quicker and not forcing six-second … [Read more...] about How Shea Patterson can help Michigan football’s OL: Ask Nick mailbag
