This Doritos bag has a built-in cassette tape player

All you have to do is plug your earbuds into it and you’ll be able to listen to the tape. And not just any tape: it’s the Awesome Mix Vol 2 from Guardians of the…This story continues at The Next Web

How to find out (almost) everything Facebook knows about you

As the saying goes: “if you aren’t being sold, you are the product.” Nowhere is this more true than on Facebook. The social network boasts nearly two billion users, and offers a staggering amount of free content that keeps most of us engaged hours each day. And in the future, it’s looking to further that effort to keep us on-site even longer, or in other Facebook-owned properties like Messenger, Whatsapp, and Instagram. The more time Facebook keeps users on the site, the more data it can collect on each of us. This data is what brings advertisers to the platform, and…This story continues at The Next Web

Uber makes checking your ‘secret’ rider score way easier

Next time you take an Uber, you might want to be on your best behavior. As part of a series of changes meant to appease drivers, Uber now displays your passenger score in plain view. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, Uber riders are rated on a five-star scale, just like drivers. But unlike drivers, users would have to dig deep into the app to find out their passenger score (and it used to be a lot more convoluted than that). Given Uber went to such lengths to avoid you seeing your score, they’ve always been more more of an easter egg for…This story continues at The Next Web
