The investigation that found big brand adverts appearing alongside ISIS propaganda is slowly morphing into a nightmare for Google, as more mammoth companies join the government in putting their digital spends with the search company on hold.The latest business to stop transferring millions into its Google Adwords account is Marks and Spencer, which explained: "In order to ensure brand safety, we are pausing activity across Google platforms whilst the matter is worked through."M has been joined by McDonald's UK in the Google protest too, with McDs' UK team saying it is also pausing ad spend with Google to "ensure brand safety" by making sure no ads for meat sandwiches appear alongside beheading videos.Sky News says that Google execs apologised to the government after Friday's meeting to explain why ads for governmental services were appearing alongside extremist content, with Google apparently booked in for another meeting with the government's ad bosses this week.Where it will talk about how it's going to apply all of its apparently wonderful AIs and algorithms to the seemingly easy job of not serving ads for dresses and milkshakes next to ISIS bomb tutorials.Want more updates from Gizmodo UK?

Kriisi autojakopalvelu Uberin ylimmässä johdossa syveni viikonloppuna, kun yhtiön hallituksen puheenjohtaja Jeff Jones erosi tehtävästään sunnuntaina.Jonesin mukaan hän lähti yhtiötä koskevien ristiriitojen ja yhteensopimattomien odotusten vuoksi.Jonesin ero on isku yhtiölle, koska hänet rekrytoitiin Uberiin nimenomaan pehmentämään yhtiön karkeaa mielikuvaa, kirjoittaa Reuters.Eron taustalla on uutistoimistojen mukaan ollut myös se, että Uberiin haetaan nyt uutta operatiivisten toimintojen johtajaa, minkä Jones koki epäluottamuksena.Uberia johtaa yhtiön toinen perustaja Travis Kalanick, joka joutui aikaisemmin tässä kuussa pyytämään anteeksi käytöstään sen jälkeen, kun hän oli rähjännyt Uber-kuskille.Kuski videoi keskustelun, jonka oli käynyt Kalanickin kanssa ja jossa Kalanick haukkui yhtiölle kritiikkiä esittäneen kuskin kiittämättömäksi.

In February 2015, when videos emerged of Daesh (ISIS) ransacking the Mosul museum in Iraq, Morehshin Allahyari decided to act.An Iranian-born artist, whose work explores the implications of 3D printing, she began recreating the destroyed statue of King Uthal of Hatra, dating from the Roman Period, and released the 3D file online.However, as digital recreations of destroyed artefacts started to proliferate - notably a 3D print of Palmyra's Arch of Triumph, mounted in London's Trafalgar Square last year - she became concerned.To Allahyari, the growing practice of organisations such as US-based digital archiver Cyark selling access to their 3D files verges on a new form of "digital colonialism"."If ISIS takes over this ownership of cultural heritage by destruction," she says, "the other side of it is this simplistic, utopian Silicon Valley [approach].Their claim is, 'We are saving the cultural heritage of the world' - actually, you are selling a product."

We've all seen films, startups, authors, or other brands "blow up" or be "everywhere".This is obviously a function of hitting multiple outlets and marketing channels in quick succession, but I was wondering if this is a studied or established thing.Is there a threshold to this effect?If so, how would you quantify it or create shortcuts for a project/client?

One of the things we know about Alien: Covenant is that Michael Fassbender is pulling double-duty in it.He’ll be playing David, the android from the last film, and Walter, another android from the same assembly line... or so we thought.The latest, utterly bizarre Alien: Covenant promo just ruined a bit of that theory.The David from Prometheus is technically a David from the David 8 line, a series of androids given the name that Sir Peter Weyland (or, as we all remember him better, Guy Pearce in bad old man make-up) originally wanted to give his real, flesh and blood son.The video Fox put out last night is a fake (obviously) ad for the new Walter line of androids, who are apparently hand-assembled by very strange women in very creepy masks:It’s interesting that Weyland-Yutani is somehow using the same body and face model for their androids, but that this isn’t the David 10 series or whatever.
