How A Simple Apple Feature Called Switch Control Is Changing Lives

buzzfeed.com — On April 3, 2012, Christopher Hills posted a clip to his YouTube account. In the three-minute video, Hills squarely addresses his webcam from what looks like his childhood bedroom. On the white walls behind him are a smattering of posters of high-end sports cars, jets, and rocket ships - it's the kind of teen bedroom that's been home to countless YouTube rants, confessions, and reviews.

Inside The Wonderful World Of Flight Attendant Internet

buzzfeed.com — Any flight attendant will tell you that there's something about being stuck in an aluminum tube 35,000 feet in the air that makes ordinary human beings behave in extraordinary ways. Excited baby-boomer vacationers toss back miniature bottles of hard liquor with reckless abandon like co-eds while toddlers wail over the coos of frustrated parents.

Reddit Isn't Just Facing A Rebellion, It's Openly Losing It

buzzfeed.com — If you're looking for an example of just how grim things are over at Reddit, CEO Ellen Pao's mea culpa is a perfect place to start.

Reddit Is An Incubator Of Hate

buzzfeed.com — If, last week, as the world mourned the brutal church murder of nine black men and women in Charleston, South Carolina, you were to visit Reddit's most popular racist community and scroll down the right side of the landing page - just past the rotating memorial image carousel of white people who've been murdered, injured, or robbed by black people - you'd see Reddit's familiarly cheerful alien logo, originally drawn by Reddit co-founder and chair Alexis Ohanian.
