Here’s what the PlayStation 5’s controller might look like
We already know that the PlayStation 5 is coming next year, and that its controller will have a few new tricks up its sleeve (more on those later). And now, we might have an idea of what that new controller could look like, based on images from a patent filed in Japan. Image: Japan Platform for Patent Information At first glance, the controller looks a lot like a DualShock 4 — which isn’t too surprising. In a hands-on, Wired described a prototype of the PS5’s controller as looking “an awful lot like the PS4’s DualShock 4.” And you can see a lot of elements carried over from the DualShock 4: a similar-looking D-pad, similar button placement, and what appears to be the touch bar. I also noticed that the grips seem to... Continue reading…

I've been using this foundation every day for more than 4 years now — here’s why I won't use anything else
Instagram/YSL Beauty I used to view foundation as the first of many, many layers of makeup I needed every day. But since using YSL Touche Éclat Foundation ($54) more than four years ago, I've been able to reduce the amount of makeup products I use and the time it takes to do my beauty routine in half. It has medium coverage and a slew of skin-care ingredients too that give my skin a natural radiance and glow. Product Embed: Product Name: YSL Beauty Touche Éclat Foundation Card Type: small Width: 100% Height: 150% Despite being a beauty writer for more than five years, I never gave much thought to my foundation. My original philosophy was that if I was going to use concealer, contour, and add some blush, there's no real point in overthinking what went underneath. Until I tried YSL Beauty Touche Éclat Foundation.  See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:I spend a lot of time working with my hands outdoors — this healing balm brings my dry and weathered skin back to life25 beauty gifts under $25 — including Le Labo lip balms, Givenchy makeup sponges, and Guerlain lipstick casesWe tested 3 different styles of the Hunter rain boots you see everyone wearing — they’re flexible, comfortable, and fully waterproof

How Brazil is leading Latin America's fintech revolution
This is a preview of LATIN AMERICA FINTECH SNAPSHOT: Brazil from Business Insider Intelligence. Purchase this report. Business Insider Intelligence offers even more fintech coverage with Fintech Pro. Subscribe today to receive industry-changing finance news and analysis to your inbox. Latin America (LATAM) is experiencing a fintech boom — and Brazil, the region's economic powerhouse that's home to the world's fifth-largest population, is leading this revolution. There were 380 fintechs operating in the country in May 2019, per Finnovista, and around two-thirds (64%) of Brazilian consumers are defined as fintech adopters by EY — a rate that's level with the global average and higher than the majority of G7 countries'. Several factors have created a fertile environment for innovation across the financial services industry, driving this revolution: A large underserved population: Around 45 million people in the country don't have access to or have not used a bank account in the past six months.  Demographics: The median age in Brazil is 32, providing the country's fintechs with a large, youthful, and tech-savvy consumer base that's likely to be more receptive to digital financial solutions.   Smartphone and internet penetration: Three-quarters of Brazilians used smartphones in 2017, which is expected to tick up to 86% by 2025 — and both figures are the highest across the region.  High fees charged by incumbents: Brazil's four largest banks control almost 80% of the country's deposits, with similar concentrations in credit and assets. Supportive regulation: Brazil's fintech-friendly regulatory agenda aims to stimulate competition in financial services.  Business Insider Intelligence dives into the hotbed of fintech activity taking place in Brazil in a new report,  Latin America Fintech Snapshot: Brazil. The report examines the five trends mentioned above, as well as the country's notable fintech segments, six fintechs to watch within those segments, and opportunities and challenges to fintech growth in the region. See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:Google smart speaker shipments plummet amid industry growthTesla has selected Berlin as the location to build its European gigafactoryLemonade postponed its plans to go public this year due to concerns about current market conditions

Alibaba leaders deny 'sensational' claims made in viral Weibo post that said the Chinese e-commerce giant misreported its Singles Day sales
Reuters Alibaba executives denied claims made by a user on the Chinese blogging site Weibo that the e-commerce giant inflated sales numbers around Singles Day.  Peng Mei — project manager for communications on Singles Day and PR director of Tmall, the retail site owned by Alibaba — responded to the allegations in a post on WeChat, threatening legal action and calling the post "very sensational." "It's one thing to please yourself with this kind of crazy thoughts," Mei wrote in a WeChat post obtained by Business Insider. "But once you state publicly that Tmall's 11.11 numbers are fabricated, you are creating rumors and you have to be legally liable for such actions."

Trump just upended 40 years of US policy toward Israel and may have shattered any hope of peace in the Middle East
Drew Angerer/Getty Images Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday announced the US will break from decades of policy and will no longer view Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank as "inconsistent with international law." This marks a stark departure from the policies of previous administrations and a 1978 State Department legal opinion issued under the administration of former President Jimmy Carter. Israeli settlements are among the most heated topics in foreign affairs and this move could derail any hope of peace and a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians.  Palestinian leaders decried the announcement as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a Trump ally who is fighting for his political survival, expressed gratitude.

Meme theft has become the norm. This high schooler is trying to change that with 'credit flexes' from Elon Musk and Lil Nas X.
Reuters/Mike Blake, Screenshot Instagram/@trigomemetry Instagram meme pages are a fixture of internet humor, and many are run by teenagers for profit. Recently, the massive meme page belonging to "F--- Jerry," a social media company that promoted the Fyre Festival, faced scrutiny and lost hundreds of thousands of followers for reposting and profiting off of other people's work, sometimes without crediting them. Even before the #F---F---Jerry controversy, one meme page run by a high school senior in Virginia has been reshaping meme page discourse in his own way through the "credit flex."  Chas Steinbrugge, 18, runs "trigoMEMEtry," and his followers love that he asks for permission before reposting funny tweets. The slides showing his interactions with everyone from Lil Nas X to Elon Musk are part of what propelled his page to more than 140,000 followers.  Steinbrugge has also created a meme citations generator, which uses the MLA format to help other meme pages credit the people whose memes they repost.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. In the lawless chaos of the Instagram meme economy, one teenager has turned a good-faith effort to credit the people whose tweets he reposts into a meme in itself — the "credit flex." Chas Steinbrugge, an 18-year-old high school senior from Virginia, started "trigoMEMEtry" in February 2017. He "spent quite a while" looking at memes already, and even made some of his own, so he decided to try growing his own page. At more than 144,000 followers, and having advertised for TikTok, Steinbrugge has successfully carved out a space for himself in a crowded social media genre.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Most maps of Louisiana aren't entirely right.
