Ninja calls out Twitch after his dormant channel highlights porn

Needless to say, Ninja saw a number of problems with the move. It’s not just that Twitch effectively replaced his presence with recommendations, something he said wasn’t true of “any other” channel, it’s that it was tarnishing his brand. Kids could have seen this material, and he didn’t have any control over it. While Ninja apologized, he also stressed that he was trying to get rid of the promotions, if not remove the Twitch channel altogether.

We’ve asked Twitch for comment.

Whatever its response, this isn’t a great look for the service. It was no surprise that Ninja’s stream would scale back (Twitch partners aren’t allowed to stream on rival services), many only expected it to remain idle, not become a billboard for other broadcasters. It certainly underscores the significance of Ninja’s switch. His leap to Mixer represented a competitive blow, and Twitch clearly wasn’t happy about it.

Porsche Taycan test drive shows the EV’s repeatable launch control

Where Tesla’s cars ask you to explicitly confirm their Ludicrous Plus mode and generally discourage you from using it often, the Taycan is officially rated for ten 0-62MPH and four 0-124MPH runs in a row before you notice any decrease in performance. Unofficially, it can do more — FC‘s Jonny Smith tried it for “some 30 full throttle launches.” The feat is rumored to be possible through special motors that use thick “hairpin” coil windings that make the motors smaller and better-suited to repeated all-out launches.

This is expected to be the top-spec Turbo model with dual motors, all-wheel drive and an unofficially estimated $146,000 price tag. It won’t be quite so blisteringly fast if you spring for the reported single-motor RWD model at about $79,000.

There are still many unknowns about the Taycan. The demo machine still had light disguises to mask the car’s final look, and FC wasn’t allowed to show the dashboard. The [...]  read more
