    Overview

    Apple iPhone Battery Controversy refers to Apple’s admission of slowing down various iPhone models to save battery life. The company statement seemed to confirm consumer belief that the smartphone manufacturer was purposely slowing phones down to force customers to buy new ones.

    Background

    On Deceber 9th, 2017, Redditor TeckFire posted in the /r/iPhone subreddit,[1]PSA: iPhone slow? Try replacing your battery!” They wrote that after testing their iPhone 6S, they came to realize that replacing the battery increased the speed of the software. The post seemed to confirm that Apple was slowing phones down as they age and the batteries depreciate, which Apple customers had theorized for the past several years. Within two weeks, the post[9] has received more than 4,100 points (95% upvoted) and 950 comments. TeckFire wrote:

    “My iPhone 6S has been very slow these past few weeks, and even after updating multiple times, it was still slow. Couldn’t figure out why, but just thought that iOS 11 was still awful to me. Then I used my brother’s iPhone 6 Plus and his was… faster than mine? This is when I knew something was wrong. So, I did some research, and decided to replace my battery. Wear level was somewhere around 20% on my old battery. I did a Geekbench score, and found I was getting 1466 Single and 2512 Multi. This did not change wether I had low power mode on or off. After changing my battery, I did another test to check if it was just a placebo. Nope. 2526 Single and 4456 Multi. From what I can tell, Apple slows down phones when their battery gets too low, so you can still have a full days charge. This also means your phone might be very slow for no discernible reason. Check your Geekbench scores and see what you get if your phone is still slow!

    TL;DR Apple slows down phones with low capacity batteries, replacing it makes them full speed again. Check Geekbench Scores."

    Development

    Less than two weeks later, Geekbench,[2] a widely recognized consumer technology testing and scoring website, analyzed the claim. They found that the phones indeed were decreasing in processor speed to compensate for older batteries. They pointed to Redditor kadupse who explained the change in speed is due to an update in iOS. The change was put in place after customers reported issues of phones suddenly shutting down, Apple released a fix that would “scale down CPU performance” so that the batteries would need less voltage. This fixed the problem of shutdown, but ultimately slowed down phones.

    Apple’s Response

    On December 21st, Apple responded to the claims. They told TechCrunch[3] in a statement that the company had, in fact, begun slowing down processors in iPhone 6, 6S, and 7s to solve the sudden shutdown problem. They wrote:

    “Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices. Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components.

    Last year we released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during these conditions. We’ve now extended that feature to iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2, and plan to add support for other products in the future."

    Media Coverage

    Many news outlets covered the controversy regarding the batteries, including The Verge,[4]NPR,[5] The Guardian,[6] The Washington Post[7] and more.

    Online Reaction

    On December 22nd, Redditor[8] MuhammadAdel posted Apple’s response in the /r/technology subreddit. Within six hours, the post received more than 22,000 points (90% upvoted) and 1,600 comments.

    Twitter users reacted negative to the controversy. On December 20th, Twitter user @sam_siruomu tweeted, “So it’s true Apple intentionally slow down old iPhones. Proof: My iPhone 6 was bought 3years ago and recently got really slow. APPCPU DasherX’ shows iPhone CPU is under clocked running at 600MHz. After a iPhone battery replacement. CPU speed resumed to factory setting 1400MHz.” The post (shown below, left) received more than 18,000 retweets and 30,000 likes in less than two days. Throughout the week, other Twitter users expressed their dismay at the news (examples, center and right).

  • 12/21/17--09:35: Large Adult Sons
  • About

    Large Adult Sons refers to characters that originated in Weird Twitter jokes. They are generally characterized as full-grown young men with childish qualities who tend to be an annoyance for the poster. Notably, the term has been applied to the sons of former Arkansas Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump.

    Origin

    The characters began appearing in Weird Twitter posts around 2012. The New Yorker[1] wrote the trend began with since-deleted Twitter user @MuscularSon, who would tweet things like “i cant control my enormous nerd sons. they force me to cosplay as a police box from Dr Who and take turns paintballing my enormous nude torso.” The trend was spread further by Dril, who utilized similar characters. On November 15th, 2013,[2] he tweeted “i have trained my two fat identical sons to sit outside of my office and protect my brain from mindfreaks by meditating intensely.”



    Spread

    On November 20th, 2014, Clickhole posted a satirical quiz article called “Which One Of My Garbage Sons Are You?”[3] which used the absurdist tropes found in earlier Large Adult Sons tweets. Its intro reads “My huge beautiful wife gave me children who think and speak like the toilet. I have four garbage sons: The first son is named Royce, the second son is named Preston, the third son is named Lance and Blake (two names for just one son), and the fourth son is the dreaded Laramie.” On January 13th, 2015, Twitter user @JuliusIrvington[4] tweeted a picture of Mike Huckabee’s family, saying that Huckabee literally had large adult sons. The tweet gained over 170 retweets and 390 likes (shown below).



    On November 11th, 2015, a post of the same picture was posted to Imgur. [5] In 2016, the phrase started seeing use in the Gawker network. On July 6th, 2016, Gawker[6] referenced the joke when it posted about a video of Donald Trump introducing his son Eric with “I love you! My boy! I love you! That’s my 6’6 boy!” (shown below). On July 13th, Deadspin[7] posted a video about Shaquille O’Neal’s basketball-playing son and called him his “large adult son.”



    It continued seeing use online, particularly in reference to sports. On October 5th, 2016, the SB Nation[9] fan blog for the USF football team posted about their punter, Jonathan Hernandez, who fans had nicknamed “Large Adult Punter.” April 21st, 2017, SB Nation[8] wrote about baseball player Aaron Judge as “our large adult baseball son.” On August 4th, The New Yorker’s Jia Tolentino[1] wrote a history and explainer of the Large Adult Sons meme, applying it to Trump sons Donald Jr. and Eric. Tolentino compared Donald Jr.’s Email Tweet Scandal to the characteristic of the Large Adult Son that “though he does nothing right, he can do no wrong.”

    Following the viral spread of Wyatt Koch’s Shirt Video led people to revive the meme. For example, MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes[10] compared Koch to a Large Adult Son, gaining over 140 retweets (shown below).

    Overview

    Ta-Nehisi Coates Feud With Cornel West refers to the ongoing disagreement between African-American writers and thinkers Cornel West and Ta-Nehisi Coates. Following the release of an essay by West criticizing Coates’ book We Had Eight Years in Power by West, Coates quit Twitter amid comments of support for West from white supremacists.

    Background

    On December 17th, 2017, Cornel West, the Professor of the Practice of Public Philosophy at Harvard University and author of Race Matters, published an essay in The Guardian[1] about author and Atlantic columnist Ta-Nehisi Coates entitled “Ta-Nehisi Coates is the neoliberal face of the black freedom struggle.” The piece introduced many negative criticisms of Coates, calling “his view of black America is narrow and dangerously misleading.” West writes,

    “In short, Coates fetishizes white supremacy. He makes it almighty, magical and unremovable. What concerns me is his narrative of ‘defiance’. For Coates, defiance is narrowly aesthetic – a personal commitment to writing with no connection to collective action. It generates crocodile tears of neoliberals who have no intention of sharing power or giving up privilege.”

    Development

    That day, Cornel West continued his criticism on Coates by tweeting,[3]“.@tanehisicoates fetishizes white supremacy. His analysis/vision of our world is too narrow & dangerously misleading, omitting the centrality of Wall Street power, US military policies, & the complex dynamics of class, gender, & sexuality in black America.” The post (shown below) received more than1,000 retweets and 2,800 likes in less than one week.



    Following the release of the article, many online posted opinions about West’s thoughts, including many to be considered against West’s ideas. On December 18th, Alt-Right leader Richard Spencer retweeted West’s article with the caption “He’s not wrong.” The post (shown below) received more than 30 retweets and 160 likes in four days.

    Shortly after Spencer retweeted this, on December 18th, Coates tweeted, “feminists, white supremacists, and leftists all in agreement. wow.” Finally, he wrote, “peace, y’all. i’m out. i didn’t get in it for this.” Following these tweets (shown below, center and right), Coates deactivated his Twitter account. [4][5]



    After Coates’ departure from Twitter, some theorized that the confluence of those groups coming together to criticize him is what caused him to leave the website. Mediaite writer Justin Baragona tweeted, “It feels like this might have been the straw that broke the camel’s back for Ta-Nehisi Coates -- Richard Spencer endorsing Cornel West’s criticism of him.” The post (shown below) received more than 170 retweets and 300 likes in three days.



    Media Coverage

    Several media outlets coverd the feud between Coates and West, including The New York Times,[7] Uproxx,[8] Complex,[9] Slate[10] and more.

  • 12/20/17--10:11: We The People
  • About

    We The People is a site in which people can create petitions with the hope of bringing issues to the White House’s attention. During the Obama administration, if a petition gain enough signatures, the White House would respond to the petition with a statement. The Trump administration has not responded to any petitions since taking office, and shut the site down, allegedly to replace it with a new system that would supposedly save tax payers $1 million.

    History

    We The People launched on September 22nd, 2011 during Barack Obama’s first term as President.[1] The petition system did not allow for petitions on criminal affairs and other processes of the Federal Government. Under the Obama administration’s rules, petitions needed to reach 150 signatures in 30 days to be searchable on the website, and needed to reach 100,000 signatures to merit a White House response (the original number was 5,000).

    Shut Down

    When Donald Trump was inaugurated, existing petitions were archived and made inactive. In the first year of Trump’s administration, two petitions reached above 100,000 signatures, while some later ones did not show the amount of signatures. By November, sixteen petitions had reached the 100,000 signature threshold, but the Trump administration never responded to any petition. On December 19th, 2017, the Trump administration shut down the site,[2] stating a different system would be implemented in late January of 2018.

    Notable Petitions

    Death Star

    In November of 2012, a petition to build a Death Star, the powerful space station and weapon from the Star Wars series, was launched and reached the required number of signatures. The White House responded in good humor, saying that the cost to build a Death Star would be far too costly and take too much time, and insisted that the administration did not support the destruction of planets.

    Send Justin Bieber to Canada

    On January 23rd, 2014, a petition was created to send pop star Justin Bieber back to his home country of Canada after he was arrested in Miami.[3] This met the required number of signatures to merit a White House response. The White House declined to comment, citing the site’s policy of not commenting on criminal cases, and instead talked about the importance immigration reform.

    Trump Taxes

    Following Donald Trump’s inauguration, a petition was created asking Trump to release his taxes, which he infamously has resisted doing. The petition reached over 1 million signatures, the first of its kind to do so. White House spokesperson Kellyanne Conway stated two days after Trump’s inauguration that Trump would not release his tax returns. Another petition asked Trump to divest his business assets in a blind trust; Trump put his businesses in the hands of his sons. No comment was ever made on these petitions.

  • 12/22/17--07:16: Max Landis
  • About

    Max Landis is an American screenwriter, director, and comic book writer known for 2012’s Chronicle and 2015’s American Ultra, among others. He has also created viral short films “Wrestling Isn’t Wrestling” and “The Death and Return of Superman.” His personality in interviews as well as criticism of some of his films have made him divisive among film fans.

    History

    Max Landis was born August 3rd, 1985 to John Landis, himself a famous director, and Deborah Nadoolman Landis.[1] He has written 75 screenplays since the age of 16, selling his first at age 18: an episode of Masters of Horror called “Deer Woman.” In 2011, he was named to Forbes Magazine’s “30 under 30” list recognizing promising talent under 30 years. His film Chronicle was released on February 3rd, 2012 to positive reviews.



    The day Chronicle was released, Landis released a comedic short film called “The Death and Return of Superman” to YouTube. The film, which features several high profile actors including Elijah Wood and Simon Pegg, gained over 3.3 million views (shown below, left). Three years later, Landis released another free comedic short film to YouTube called “Wrestling Isn’t Wrestling,” in which he talks about the appeal of Professional Wrestling by telling the story of WWE star Triple H. That video also features several high-profile cameos and has gained over 2.9 million views (shown below, right).



    Landis is the writer and executive producer of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency , a television adaptation of the novels by Douglas Adams. He is also an executive producer on the television series Channel Zero. He is the writer and director of the Netflix exclusive film Bright, which stars Will Smith.

    Reputation

    Landis has been a divisive figure among critics for his personality. In a since-deleted interview with blog Shelby Sells, Landis gave controversial statements about his relationship with women. Excerpts from the interview include:

    the one thing that’s changed is certain chicks, which only started happening very recently, when they find out i’m a director, will open up a lot quicker.
    you mean their legs?
    everything – their legs, their personality. they’ll start crying to you in an instant.
    oh god, why?
    because they’re trying to leave an impression.

    When talking about a girl he confessed to giving “a crippling social anxiety, self-loathing, body dismorphia, (and) eating disorder to,” Landis said:

    i mean you can’t really give someone any of these things, but the seeds of these things were there inside of her. we were in such a sort of unfair, fucked up relationship – not the kind where there’s a lot of yelling and screaming – the actual relationship was very nice and loving, but i was so fickle about her body. i’m not shy, i would just blurt out shit all the time. she ended up completely changing how she dressed and how she looked for me. that chick will never talk to me again.

    The interview caused a slew of reactions online who claimed the interview painted Landis as misogynist. Landis responded by writing several social media posts defending himself, including a Facebook post which read:

    Holy fucking shit. The response to that sex interview is insane. People fucking DESPISE me it’s incredible. Granted, people who “get” the interview isn’t about “CHEATING IS FUNHAHA I GETLAID” seem to absolutely love it, but the ones who hate it are like calling me a misogynist sociopath rapist and fun stuff like that. It’s terrifying. Like, hundreds of people tweeting me in both directions.

    The interview and the reactions were covered by Jezebel,[2] who called Landis a “screenwriter bro” and “maybe Hollywood’s biggest fuckwit.”

    In 2015, Landis gave ammunition critics who believed him sexist. when he tweeted that The Force Awakens was a film of fan fiction with a Mary Sue as the main character (shown below).



    Landis would revisit the criticisms in 2017 in a series of interviews. After a positive profile of him was posted in Vulture,[4] feminist critics voiced opinions that Landis’ success was due to white male privilege and his privileged background.[5] In an interview with Newsweek,[3] he said he was tired of the criticisms, stating “I’m not a sexist guy.” In December of 2017, ahead of the release of Bright, Landis wrote in an essay for Hollywood Reporter[6] insisting that his father was not instrumental to his success.

    Bright was released on December 22nd, 2017 to scathing reviews. The Daily Beast[7] called the film “A $90 Million Steaming Pile of Orc Sh*t”. The film scored a 31% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.[8]USA Today[9] compiled some of the most damning lines of criticism leveled at Bright by film critics. This caused Twitter users who were previously critical of Landis to revel in the film’s failure. A since-deleted tweet of Landis’ from 2015 in which he said Bright could be his Star Wars began circulating online in mockery of Landis (shown below).

    About

    NicoB is a YouTube Let’s Player and occasional livestreamer best known for his Let’s Plays of the Danganronpa and Persona series of video games. He mainly plays Japanese games. He is 29 years old and prefers to keep his real name and location unknown. Since beginning his LP career in 2012, he has released over 1,500 videos and LPed over 100 games. As of 2017, his channel has amassed 100,000 subscribers. His main shtick is voice-acting the game characters himself if there isn’t already voice-acting in the game, and he also has a knack for predicting important plot elements.. His fans are referred to as “Picky Penguins”.

    Origin

    NicoB’s username came from the character Niko Bellic from the game Grand Theft Auto IV, though he accidentally spelt it with a “c” instead of a “k”. Before doing Let’s Plays, he was an independent video game developer, where he spearheaded development for an RPG Maker game called Forever’s End, which was positively received by the RPG Maker community. In 2012, he began making “Let’s Trys”, where he plays through and critiques other RPG Maker games, and posts them on his YouTube channel. He gained modest success early on with his LPs of Japanese horror games such as Ib and Corpse Party. Overtime, he slowly moved away from obsecure RPG Maker games and experimented with playing other kinds of games on his channel, and his first LP to breach 100,000 views was his LP of Zero Escape: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors. His next major LP, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, became one of his most popular LPs to date, having over 400,000 views as of 2017. It was these games that would go on to define the bulk of his LPing catalog.

    Notable Memes

    “Bagels”

    In Episode 19 of his Danganronpa 2 LP, he ad-libs the character Nagito Komaeda spontaneously shouting “bagels” during a conversation, even going as far as changing the in-game textbox to say “BAGELS” while editing the video. It became a running gag throughout his Let’s Play and was picked up as an inside joke by the Danganronpa fanbase. The meme is referenced frequently in his other LPs.

  • About

    Eating Tide PODS refers to jokes centered around the idea of eating Tide PODS, a brand of laundry detergent capsules. The jokes are due to its appearance, which can be compared to fruit despite the fact that the capsules are highly poisonous if consumed.

    Origin

    Tide PODS were introduced in February of 2012 by their manufacturer Procter & Gamble. They were hugely successful upon release. Due to this success, however, there were increased calls to poison control centers due to their consumption, especially by children.[1]

    Spread

    On December 8, 2015, satirical news site The Onion published an opinion article written from the point of view of a child attempting to eat laundry pods; while the article does not name Tide PODS by name, the description it uses implies that this is what the author is writing about.[2] On July 11, 2017, The Onion published another article satirically describing a new Sour Apple flavor of Tide PODS.[3]

    On March 31, 2017, humor website CollegeHumor uploaded a video titled “Don’t Eat The Laundry Pods”, which gained over 2.5 million views by the end of the year.



    On December 11, 2017, Twitter user @littlestwayne tweeted about eating Tide PODS, which gained over 25,000 likes.[4] A similar tweet by user @fastjellyfish was posted on December 21 and gained over 18,000 likes.[5]
