In a Friday night rally attended by at least 11,000 adoring fans in Tucson, Arizona, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders skewered Donald Trump for what he described as racist vote-baiting, praised undocumented immigrants, slammed gun law loopholes and called for increasing the federal minimum wage.
The campaign event was the second the socialist-leaning senator has held in the red state of Arizona. An event in Phoenix in July drew an equally large crowd. At this one, the Vermont senator made several campaign promises:
After clearly criticizing Republican frontrunner Trump for calling undocumented immigrants from Mexico criminals and rapists, Sanders said he supports expanding a federal immigration policy that exempts people who entered the country before their 16th birthday from deportation. He said the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, more commonly known as DACA, should also exempt parents of legal citizens. In addition, Sanders said he wasn’t opposed to using executive orders to fix a broken immigration system.
By the end of October, you might notice that doing a Google search via Safari on an iPhone or an iPad returns results with deep links to iOS apps. That's because Mountain View has given developers the power to do so -- they simply have to add Universal Links to their iOS apps and integrate with the Google search SDK. The company first brought app indexing to Apple's mobile platform back in May, but only the Chrome browser and the Google Search app could dig for info from within applications: Safari had no access to the feature. As we've mentioned, though, those Safari deep links won't start rolling out until late October, and you can only get them when doing a query if you've already installed iOS 9.
I don’t normally pay much attention to fashion. I’m not a fashion blogger. I don’t read fashion articles. If I think something looks good, I wear it.
That being said, there’s a really interesting trend in tech whereby dressing down is dressing up. If you show up to a VC pitch on Sand Hill Road wearing a suit, you’d look out of place. I’ve seen the same thing here in Toronto: The look of horror when the three-piece recognizes they’re floating in a sea of v-necks.
If we were to really give this more than a cursory glance and look at when business casual became casual, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg seem like a good place to start. In public, you would see Steve wearing his typified jeans, sneakers and black turtleneck. Individuals in the industry straying away from the latter item altogether (lest they be giving off the appearance of trying to remotely resemble the greatest “think different-er” of our time) really does limit one’s turtleneck options.
So far, New York Comic Con has been a glorious amalgam of my favorite things: Pokémon cosplayers, convention center pretzels, unbridled fandom, and Mr. Robot. The techno thriller’s cast and creator took to the stage for a panel Friday afternoon, where we learned season two will be super dark, so BE READY FOR SEASON 1 SPOILERS AHEAD.
The panel consisted of Rami Malek (Elliot), Carly Chaikin (Darlene), Portia Doubleday (Angela), Christian Slater (Mr. Robot), Martin Wallström (Tyrell Wellick), and show creator Sam Esmail, and we were treated to some valuable nuggets of information:

Nvidia was handed a major setback Friday in its lawsuit with Samsung over the improper use of its graphics technology.
Thomas B. Pender, an administrative law judge for the US International Trade Commission, wrote that Samsung didn't infringe on Nvidia's graphics patents. He also determined one of Nvidia's three patents is invalid because the technology had already been covered in previously known patents.
Minnesota’s weather is rapidly cooling (at least for this Floridian), providing an excellent excuse to barricade ourselves inside and play video games. Destiny: The Taken King has taken up much of the staff's weekend plans, but the Star Wars Battlefront beta may elbow it's way into our game time. Some us are still trying to get The Witcher 3 and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain under our belts, while others plan to live out their athlete/musician fantasies with a myriad of sports titles and Rock Band 4. Share your weekend plans in the comments!
Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – This weekend I'm trying to rekindle my love of Metal Gear Solid V. I took too long of a break to check out some other games and really need to blast through this thing. I'm on the mission 19 at around the 32-hour mark; I think I'm really bad and really slow at this game. Outside of that, I'm going to bring Jackbox Party Pack 2 to a party on Saturday and am anticipating a good, dumb, fun time. Have a good weekend!

Emoji nowadays is as much a pictorial language as it is an art form. The range of communicative expression of Face With Open Mouth or Fish Cake With Swirling Design is surpassed only by the context and artful nature in which they're used. Care to tell your friend that you don't find that particular bar conducive to group conversation? Try Pensive Face with a dash of Teacup Without Handle punctuated by a plus sign and Wine Glass. An emoji is worth at least four to eight words, as the old idiom goes.
And so that brings us to Stuffed Flatbread, one of 67 new emoji candidates compiled by the Unicode Consortium. In May, the group will decide which emoji make it into Unicode version 9.0, which will be distributed as a standards guide to software and device makers worldwide. There are some gems — Drooling Face, Selfie, Shallow Pan of Food, Person Doing Cartwheel — but none with the depth of Stuffed Flatbread.
