the cuban connection

HEN CUBAN AMERICAN photographer Lisette Poole was tasked with capturing Havana residents who are hacking their way around their country’s lack of internet infrastructure (“Viva el Internet,” page 68), she knew what her subjects were going through. The Bay Area native, who has been living and working in Cuba since 2014, says that when it comes to filing assignments or catching up on email, she has to vie for the same limited public Wi-Fi as everyone else. “It totally changes the pace of my workday,” says Poole, who doesn’t have home internet access. “Just getting basic things done, getting in touch with people, can be really tricky.” Her still untitled book, documenting the last days of the “wet foot, dry foot” migration policy, comes out in 2018.

the mothership has landed

GOOD THINGS really do take time. Like Apple’s new campus: Thirteen years after Steve Jobs and Jony Ive first discussed the future headquarters, and eight years after architect Norman Foster drew up sketches, the spaceship-like building became reality. In June, writer Steven Levy gave readers an exclusive look at a unique company’s unique building. Apple is one-of-a-kind, but plenty of tech fifirms in other parts of the country have Apple-ish aspirations, as Vauhini Vara writes in “Silicon Valley, USA.” They may not have the name recognition of their West Coast counterparts, but they’re creating their own niche ecosystems—no jaw-dropping buildings needed. Re: “One More Thing” “THIS IS ARGUABLY ONE OF THE BEST-WRITTEN ARTICLES ABOUT APPLE SINCE JOBS DIED.” Michael on wired.com “That cover photo’s got Dan Winters written all over it.” @iankasnoff…

argument bots at work

ROBOTS ARE COMING for our jobs—but not all of our jobs. They’re coming, in ever increasing numbers, for a certain kind of work. For farm and factory labor. For construction. For haulage. In other words, bluecollar jobs traditionally done by men. ¶ This is why automation is so much more than an economic problem. It is a cultural problem, an identity problem, and—critically—a gender problem. Millions of men around the world are staring into the lacquered teeth of obsolescence, terrified of losing not only their security but also their source of meaning and dignity in a world that tells them that if they’re not rich, they’d better be doing something quintessentially manly for money. Otherwise they’re about as much use as a wooden coachandfour on the freeway. ¶ There’s hope…

t2 in 3-d? wtf?!

Having nearly run out of eyerolling Avengers conjoinings and bastardized reboots, Hollywood execs have landed on an even lazier way to sell movie tickets: 3-D releases of beloved classics. The latest victim of this desecration? Terminator 2. Twenty-six years since Schwarz enegger launched his motor cycle off a culvert wall and into our hearts, the ultimate action flick is back in multiplexes, now promising three dimensions of taut Terminator flesh. But T2 won’t be the good kind of 3-D. That would require specialized cameras that didn’t exist in the ’90s—which James Cameron, of all people, should know, since he had to invent them to make Avatar. (Hasta la vista, integrity.) Yeah, maybe he’ll make that semi look like it’s barreling right at you, man, so shelling out a bajillion bucks…

blonde ambition filming a killer action sequence

CHARLIZE THERON was badass in Mad Max: Fury Road, but she gets even Furiosa in Atomic Blonde. Toward the end of the new Cold War thriller, the camera follows Theron (playing an MI6 spy) up an elevator, onto a stairwell where she’s attacked by Russian thugs, into an apartment where she employs a hot plate as a weapon, and eventually out onto the street and into a police car for a high-speed chase. At just under 10 minutes long, the bravura sequence is a living, bleeding embodiment of director David Leitch’s mission: Use analog techniques to make action cinema feel real again. ¶ While the set piece appears to be one uninterrupted take, Leitch stitched it together using old-school camera tricks like whip pans and wipes to make the transitions…

SO YOU’VE BEEN SAVING UP your stock options and now you’re ready to buy that xeriscaped bungalow. But where? Assuming you’re not locked into a particular city, you should make your real estate decisions based on real data.
