Apple iPhone 12 review: New design and camera impress, not 5G - Business Insider

  • Still, the iPhone 12 is a step up in other important ways, like its refreshed design that makes it easier to hold, an improved screen, a high-quality camera that's better at seeing in the dark, and compatibility with a new accessory line designed to seamlessly snap to the back of your iPhone.
  • The ability to absorb more light has made the iPhone 12's camera system slightly better at capturing photos in Night Mode compared to its predecessors.
  • Below you'll notice the iPhone 12's photo of a Halloween display at night is a little brighter than the image shot on the iPhone 11 Pro. The iPhone 12's Night Mode shots are sometimes better and, in other scenarios, a little worse than those taken by the Galaxy S20 Ultra and Google Pixel 5.

Uber sued by drivers over 'threatening' Prop. 22 messages in app - Business Insider

  • Earlier this month, as part of its multi-million dollar bid to get California's Proposition 22 passed at the polls in November, Uber sent a series of push notifications and in-app messages to drivers and riders.
  • In August, California's Attorney General filed a lawsuit against both Uber and Lyft, accusing them of breaking the state's new employment law that was passed at the beginning of the year.
  • Because drivers set their own hours, use their own cars, and can work for competing apps, Uber has long maintained that it is not breaking the law by treating them as contractors.
  • 22, which is supported by nearly $200 million in funding from Uber, DoorDash, Lyft and other gig-work companies, would establish a benefits fund that would follow workers across apps and jobs, while keeping them as contractors.

Kushner talking up Trump-branded media outlet, GOP sources say - Business Insider

  • Jared Kushner has been talking up the idea of starting a Donald Trump-themed news outlet or some other media company, possibly as soon as after the election, five Republicans familiar with the discussions told Insider.
  • This time around, the buzz about a new career path for Kushner meshes with media reports about the power couple's reported wishes to return to New York after Trump leaves the White House, whether that's in January 2021 or 2025.
  • A former White House official also questioned whether Kushner would be able to execute a media deal given the hurdles of building an outlet on par with something like CNN, Fox News or MSNBC.
  • But the Republicans familiar with the 2020 discussions since then said Kushner has more recently talked up the idea of doing something broader, possibly including a digital news operation with a social media focus.
