Android App for Phone Story Released!

An Android app of "Phone Story" was released this morning, less than a day after Apple pulled it from the iTunes store. By rejecting the app, Apple has made sure that this phone story isn't just about horrible labor conditions in the life-cycle of mobile phones, it's now also about censorship and the chilling effects Apple's policies have on content.

GE Returns Billions to Public Coffers... FOR REAL!

[UPDATE: FOUR YEARS LATER, THIS HAPPENS FOR REAL!! CLICK THROUGH FOR DETAILS.] With local, State and Federal governments slashing critical education, health and public safety services nationwide due to dramatic budget cutbacks, GE brought good things to life by offering to return the entirety of its $3.2 billion 2010 tax refund to the Treasury. Even more touching, GE committed to conducting a nationwide survey to gauge popular opinion on which of the recently-enacted budget cuts people would like to see reversed, now possible thanks to GE's generosity. This unprecedented—and completely fictitious—corporate move, was a joint project of US Uncut and the Yes Lab, and caused GE's stock to drop $3.5 billion after it was reported in USA Today.

Coal for the Rich

Students from Columbia College in Chicago came together with Greenpeace and The Yes Lab to create the illusion that a new Coal Plant was planned in Chicago — but that instead of going in a poor neighborhood like the two coal plants that already exist, this one would be built in a rich one.
