Trump says he hopes Russia hacked Hillary Clinton’s emails

Donald Trump says that if Russians were behind the security breach that made tens of thousands of Democratic National Committee emails public, he hopes they’ve also hacked Hillary Clinton’s private email server. In a press conference, Trump responded to a question by saying that "it’s probably not [Russia], nobody knows who it is." But he gleefully expounded on the implications of a Russian hack. "If they hacked, they probably have [Clinton’s] 33,000 emails. I hope they do," he said, as quoted by Talking Points Memo . "They probably have her 33,000 emails that she lost and deleted."

Facebook smashes earnings, stock soars

One less sunny moment of Facebook's earnings call was when CFO David Wehner said that Facebook expects that it will see lower growth rates in the next couple quarters, because it doesn't expect as big of an increase in ad load to help drive revenue. This quarter, Facebook saw a 49% increase in ad impressions, but it thinks it has almost reached the peak number of ads it can squeeze into your Newsfeed.

Trump wants Russia to hack the US government (updated)

"Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing," Trump said today, reports The New York Times . "I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press." By "find," it's pretty clear Trump was advocating for another hack to uncover more emails, specifically those from Hillary Clinton's private email server when she was Secretary of State. Regardless of whether those emails were on a private server or not, hacking emails sent while she was Secretary of State would amount to hacking the US government. The emails in question were deemed personal and private and deleted by Clinton.

Here’s What We Know About Russia and the DNC Hack

If the allegations do prove correct, this is an unprecedented step for Russia. Hacking is nothing new, but publicizing documents to attempt to sway an election certainly is. Putin would clearly prefer a Trump presidency. The billionaire Republican candidate is a longtime admirer of Putin’s, and has publicly stated that he wouldn’t necessarily defend NATO allies against a Russian invasion. To top it all off, Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, formerly worked as an advisor to Viktor Yanukovych, the Russian-backed President of Ukraine before he was ousted in 2014.

What is LeEco, and why is it buying Vizio?

Vizio, meanwhile, now has a greater opportunity to expand outside of the US. "One of the things that excited us most about the acquisition is LeEco's global resources and their global access, and their desire to continue to push that even further than it is today," says CTO Matt McRae, who also sees potential for LeEco's content strategy to improve Vizio's products at home. "Content is a big part of what we think is important moving forward. Not just on the TV — across the screens — but specifically across the living room. So content integration is a lower-hanging fruit. Some of the backend integration could be as well. LeEco has this huge global CDN [content delivery network], as they discussed today."

The Stories Behind Stranger Things' Retro '80s Props

Surprisingly, Reiss says bikes may have been the hardest props to get because she needed 16 in all: Each boy had one primary bike, a backup, a stunt bike, and a backup stunt bike. It’s nearly impossible to find that many identical bikes from the ’80s. Reiss went with a mix of banana-seat bikes and BMX bikes. “Mike’s bike is actually a reproduction,” Reiss says. “We aged them all up and taped them. With Dustin’s bike, we decided he was sort of a klutz. So we painted his bike but never finished it, and that’s why his bike is two colors.”
