|t||Microsoft announced the new Surface Pro— no numbers this time— at an event in Shanghai. The power-efficient Kaby Lake chip and some other tweaks let Microsoft claim 13.5 hours of battery life. Otherwise the hardware is similar to the Surface Pro 4, including no USB-C ports. A version with LTE built-in will eventually be offered. The Surface Pen now has 4,096 levels of sensitivity up from 1024 including tilt sensitivity, but must be bought separately for $99. Platinum, burgundy, and cobalt blue cloth covered Surface Pro Type Covers will be available separately at $159 and a black non-cloth model for $129. Pre-orders start today starting at $799 for shipping in 26 countries June 15.----- Microsoft also announced a new version of Windows 10 customized for government use in China. It uses China’s own encryption scheme and a joint venture manages system updates, instead of having them provided directly by Microsoft.||https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2017/05/surface-pro-updated-at-last-kaby-lake-gives-longer-battery-life-but-still-no-modern-ports/|
|p||Google's AlphaGo defeated the world's number one Go player, Ke Jie, in the first of a three game match.|
AlphaGo won by half a point.
The remaining matches are scheduled for May 25, and May 28.
AlphaGo will also participate in two stipulation matches on May 27, one acting as a teammate to two competing human players, and another where AlphaGo takes on five Chinese pros at once.
|t||The Chaos Computer Club were able to unlock a Samsung Galaxy S8, using a picture of the users’ Iris. An image of a user’s iris can be obtained from a high resolution picture or taken from up to five meters away using a 200mm lens in night-shot mode or with the infrared filter disabled. The club printed a picture of the iris on a high-quality Samsung laser printer and placed a contact lens on top of it to mimic the curvature of the eye.||http://www.securityweek.com/hackers-defeat-samsung-galaxy-s8-iris-scanner|
|p||Supercell updated their hit mobile game Clash of Clans in a comprehensive manner that many connoisseurs describe as "Pretty Much 'Clash Of Clans 2'".|
The update brings a whole new map (and new base), as well as new mechanics that refresh gameplay for old fans and invites new players in.
|t||Pinterest has added the ability to identify food from pictures of meals as part of its Lens feature. Lens will analyze the photo and suggest matching recipes. You can also fine tune recipe searches by time, vegetarian or vegan content, or other specific ingredients. Pinterest is not calling the new feature See Food.||https://techcrunch.com/2017/05/23/pinterest-brings-full-dish-recognition-to-its-lens-camera-search/?ncid=rss|

Regarding the discussion about Facebook liability as a "publisher" of offensive content it would be best to look to the past. There are two cases of interest, one involves Compuserve and the other, Prodigy. I would say that Facebook falls solidly in the Prodigy camp and is a publisher.
The TL;DR is the wikipedia article here:
Keep up the good work
|- In Cubby Inc. Vs. CompuServ, CompuServ was found to be an online service provider, not a publisher|
Stratton claimed Prodigy could not use that defense because it exercised editorial control over content created by its users in three ways
1. Posted content guidelines for users
2. Enforced the guidelines with board leaders
3. Removed offensive language with screening software
Court held "Prodigy's conscious choice, to gain the benefits of editorial control, has opened it up to a greater liability to CompuServe and other computer networks that make no such choice."
HOWEVER The holding in Stratton was overruled in federal legislation when Congress passed Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act in 1996.
“No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.”
