The CutiePi tablet with a built-in handle, a Raspberry Pi for brains, and Linux-based software is nearing release. Twitter is charging people willing to pay for an Undo Tweet button (and a few other perks). Google hopes YouTube might be a friendlier place if it hides the number of times the dislike button has been clicked on videos. And NXP has unveiled a new processor family.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

  1. The CutiePi looks, well, cute. I was wondering how it compares to the PineTab, which costs less than half as much. Pine offers more OS options, though I don’t know how many of them are ready for consumers. You can even add a SSD to the PineTab. However, I imagine that both the CutiePi and PineTab are competing with the Amazon 7 to be the slowest tablet sold.

  2. Of course they got rid of it. I was expecting this for years. We can’t have other people seeing how abhorrent certain politicians are thought to be.

    1. It requires a bunch of spin control when the Resident and members of the administration and MSM gets thousands of down votes for every up vote.

    2. And don’t forget disinformation, misinformation and fake news spreading scum.

      1. I think you might be trying to mock me but there really are a lot of bad tutorial and scam videos that it’s now less clear that there might be something wrong with.
        I mean, really the efforts to remove disliking entirely started over YouTube Rewind videos being heavily disliked, and ad customers would also want this to happen. It lets them upload their own videos for products and services with the the illusion that no one sees anything wrong with them. Politicians and their lobbyists just happen to be really really big ad customers.

        1. I am not. I actually am talking seriously about such videos that spread misinformation or just straight up lies.
