YouTube shares blame for Logan Paul video. It's The Daily Crunch.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 3 2018 By Darrell Etherington

YouTube screwed up with Logan Paul video moderation, SpaceX readies its biggest rocket and Nissan is reading minds. All that and more in The Daily Crunch for January 3, 2018.

1. YouTube shares the blame for Logan Paul fiasco

YouTuber Logan Paul posted video of a dead man who'd killed himself by hanging, and thought that was an okay thing to do. Of course, he's definitely at fault here – but so is YouTube, and it turns out the moderation team even saw, reviewed and decided to leave it up.

This is a twist that lays even more culpability at the feet of YouTube, which wasn't blameless even before this came to light. The platform is already facing criticism for its moderation practices in other areas, and this is bound to deepen that.

2. SpaceX's very big rocket is vertical

One of the final steps before launching a rocket is putting it vertically on its launchpad, and that's exactly what SpaceX has done with its Falcon Heavy. The big controlled explosive device has three Falcon 9 boosters strapped together for a tremendous amount of thrust, and it's likely to be quite the sight to see when it launches sometime this month for the first time ever.

3. Nissan's future cars could ready your mind

Nissan is demonstrating a brain-reading interface for cars at CES this year, which can do things like anticipate drivers turning or braking, increasing their reaction times ever so slightly – but possibly enough to enable safer driving. Eventually, the car could learn to, say, put Enya on the stereo – even if you didn't know you liked Enya.

4. Apple's $29 battery replacement is available to all

Apple has directed stores not to worry about diagnostic tool results when replacing iPhone 6 or later batteries. It offered up a $29 discounted swap for customers after it came to light that it was throttling CPU speeds on older devices to keep performance smooth, without making customers aware of that fact. Now it's doing whatever it can to save face.

5. Airbnb wins key California court case

Airbnb has won a lawsuit filed by a major property owner in California regarding Airbnb's role in encouraging users to break the terms of their lease agreements.

6. Spotify files to go public

Spotify has filed to list publicly on the NYSE, and it's doing it unconventionally, with a plan to skip the initial sale and just begin listing directly.

7. Netflix is making a sequel to its first blockbuster

Netflix is going forward with a sequel to Bright, the Will Smith-starrer it poured a lot of money into. The movie did very well with viewers, even if critics almost universally hated it.
