Illustration by William Joel / The Verge YouTube is “finalizing plans” to end targeted advertising on its main site for uploaded videos that children are likely to watch, according to a new report from Bloomberg. The move could be meant to appease regulators at the Federal Trade Commission who have examined whether YouTube has violated the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) through data collection and a failure to protect young users on the platform.

Photo by Sean O’Kane / The Verge Malfunctioning Tesla solar panels started fires at “no fewer than” seven Walmart stores, resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage, the retail giant alleges in a new lawsuit filed in New York State Supreme Court Tuesday.

A big part of being a kid is building things, deconstructing things and, in general, discovering how things work — that’s why we buy those starter science experiment kits and toy microscopes to encourage their curiosity. But it’s easy to run out of ideas to keep them interested in science, especially as they get older.

Conservative painter Jon McNaughton released his latest MAGA-related work on Tuesday. Titled "The Masterpiece," it features Donald Trump unveiling a painting of some kind while seated in ... a cathedral? A studio with really high ceilings? We are not sure. The painting is ostensibly dry, because a cloth has been draped over it, but it's also probably wet, because Trump is still holding the palette he used to make it. It's unclear what the painting depicts, exactly, but we assume that's not...

There are a number of aspiring electric vehicle startups in and around Silicon Valley, but very few have shipped actual cars, let alone established a steady business. A new startup called Drako Motors is the latest company to try to change that, and it wants to do so with a 1,200-horsepower $1.25 million supercar called the GTE. Unveiled at Monterey Car Week, Drako Motors showed off what it says is the first production version of the GTE. The startup pulled no punches in how it described the...

Is Facebook biased against conservatives? An independent review led by former Sen. Jon Kyl set out to answer that question last year.  Now, the results are in. The answer? Inconclusive. But the methodology behind the "audit" is highly dubious. On Tuesday, the long-awaited report was released, along with a Wall Street Journal op-ed by the former Arizona GOP senator. “Facebook has recognized the importance of our assessment and has taken some steps to address the concerns we uncovered,” Kyl...

It's finally here. More than a year after Mark Zuckerberg took the stage at Facebook's 2018 F8 conference and announced plans to create a "clear history" tool that would let users remove browsing data from Facebook, the company has something to show for it. After numerous delays, they're now starting to roll out the "clear history" feature. The catch? It doesn't actually "clear" any of your data at all.  Instead, the new privacy feature will allow users to "disconnect" their "off-Facebook...

There isn't a date yet, but the first two seasons fell in 2018 and 2019 — it's not a stretch to speculate that 2020 will bring Season 3.
