It Will Take Google 22 Days to Find You — ​ Image: Matthew Rothenberg Only 346 people got to glimpse ​Unindexed, a communal website built by Matthew Rothenberg, before it exploded. Unindexed did two things: allow users to submit comments to the site, and constantly search for itself in Google. The latter was a suicide mission.

Funny or Die's 'Apology from Uber' Satire Is Spot On and Therefore Depressing — Uber, the San Francisco-based startup that makes gobs of money off a very simple innovation coupled with an exacting and ruthless execution, frequently finds itself the target of criticism. Uber's offenses including flouting local regulations, price gouging customers during emergencies, employing drivers who assault their passengers, or stalking reporters, and its marketing team and executives can often be seen issuing apologies (or ​non-apology apologies).
