The sportswear giant announced today that it would be expanding Kanye West's brand into a full-fledged athleisure and sports performance line called adidas + Kanye West.

Everything Is Embarrassing About #HeterosexualPrideDay
The number one trending topic today on Twitter was Heterosexual Pride Day, an utterly fucked up response to LGBTQ pride month created by conservative right-wingers in the 90s. Are you eye rolling the insufferable, homophobic people who just can't help themselves from derailing a celebratory month observed by queer people who've faced struggle as a marginalized group? SAME.
Uber's Latest Feature Tracks Drivers' Speed
Finally, a change to the Uber app that actually benefits its customers. Uber's app for drivers is getting an update that will keep track of their acceleration, speed and harsh braking by using sensors in a driver's phone. Another feature of the program uses data from motion sensors and the phone's gyroscope to detect when the driver picks up the phone while driving. The update is being tested in markets before a global launch. (Via: WSJ)
Facebook's News Feed Update Means More Family And Friends, Less News
In a document Facebook published today called "News Feed Values" the platform sheds explains decides what shows up on your news feed (most likely in light of last month's conservative trends debacle) and its latest update. From now on, the News Feed will show posts from friends higher up in the feed than posts from Pages like brands and news outlets. This is great news for family and friends who love to overshare, terrible for publishers that survive on reach and referral traffic. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
