Apple killed off the 12 inch MacBook

Apple announced a slew of back-to-school updates to its MacBook line, most of which were slight reshuffling and a lean-in to its mildly controversial Touch Bar. But Apple also said goodbye to a beloved member of the lineup: the 12-inch MacBook. The gorgeous and ultralight laptop, introduced in 2015, became largely redundant when Apple recommitted to the MacBook Air last year, but you can still pick one up for old times sake in Apple’s refurbished section.

Spoiler warning! This neural network spots dangerous reviews before you read them

It’s hard to avoid spoilers on the internet these days — even if you’re careful, a random tweet or recommended news item could lay to waste your plan to watch that season finale a day late or catch a movie after the crowds have subsided. But soon an AI agent may do the spoiler-spotting for you, and flag spoilerific reviews and content before you even have a chance to look.

SpoilerNet is the creation of a team at UC San Diego, composed perhaps of people who tried waiting a week to see Infinity War and got snapped for their troubles. Never again!

They assembled a database of more than a million reviews from Amazon-owned reading community Goodreads, where it is the convention to note spoilers in any reviews, essentially line by line. As a user of the site I’m thankful for this capability, and the researchers were too — because nowhere else is there a corpus of written reviews in which whatever constitutes a “spoiler” has been meticulously labeled by a conscientious community.
