From CNN:

Donald Trump comes out of his convention ahead of Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, topping her 44% to 39% in a four-way matchup including Gary Johnson (9%) and Jill Stein (3%) and by three points in a two-way head-to-head, 48% to 45%. That latter finding represents a 6-point convention bounce for Trump, which are traditionally measured in two-way matchups.

If you think things are bad now, it’s only gonna get worse if this tiny-handed, orange-faced asshat wins the election.

From The Atlantic:

The allegations may seem at odds with the reputation of this city known for its progressivism. But many African Americans in Portland say they’re not surprised when they hear about racial incidents in this city and state. That’s because racism has been entrenched in Oregon, maybe more than any state in the north, for nearly two centuries. When the state entered the union in 1859, for example, Oregon explicitly forbade black people from living in its borders, the only state to do so. In more recent times, the city repeatedly undertook “urban renewal” projects (such as the construction of Legacy Emanuel Hospital) that decimated the small black community that existed here. And racism persists today. A 2011 audit found that landlords and leasing agents here discriminated against black and Latino renters 64 percent of the time, citing them higher rents or deposits and adding on additional fees. In area schools, African American students are suspended and expelled at a rate four to five times higher than that of their white peers.

This is a really, really good article.

Trump’s disastrous Day One →

From Politico:

CLEVELAND — Donald Trump’s supporters painted a dark and dystopian portrait of an America in decline on Monday, as a parade of people spoke about a country slipping from their grasp, cops getting gunned down in the streets, and their family members slain by illegal immigrants.

But a self-inflicted scheduling blunder — the Trump campaign put the evening’s headliner, Melania Trump, well before the prime-time hour ended — had the networks turning away before the precious hour of free TV had been used up. Worse, her speech bore a striking resemblance to a Michelle Obama speech from 2008.

The RNC is a total shitshow.

Tons of updates today. For those of you enrolled in the developer program, iOS 10 beta 3, watchOS 10 beta 3, and tvOS beta 3 are all available now (public beta members will likely see the updates tomorrow). Oddly, there wasn’t a new macOS Sierra beta released today so we’ll probably see that soon.

On the stable side of things, iOS 9.3.3, watchOS 2.2.2, tvOS 9.2.2, OS X El Capitan 10.11.6, and iTunes 12.4.2 are all available. Hit software update on your device(s) to grab the latest updates.

From The Verge:

Nintendo is bringing back the NES — only a little smaller.

Today the company announced what it’s calling the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition. It looks just like a NES, only a lot tinier, and it comes with 30 games built in. You can connect it to your TV via a HDMI cable, and it also includes a controller designed to work just like the iconic rectangular NES gamepad. (The new controller will also connect to a Wii Remote, so that you can use it to play Virtual Console games on a Wii or Wii U.)

JUST TAKE MY DAMN MONEY, NINTENDO.

From Macworld:

Mail did get a few tweaks that make wrangling the unwieldiest of inboxes easier than ever. I’ve been using the iOS 10 developer beta on a 12.9-inch iPad Pro for the last couple weeks, and the public beta since its launch. Here are four of my favorite new Mail features. If you’ve found any other changes in the Mail app, share them with us in the comments.

The three-pane view in Mail and Notes is really nice on the larger iPad Pro.
