Jamal Khashoggi, the dissident Saudi writer who was killed by Saudi agents in Istanbul last year, had 1.6 million followers at the time of his death, allowing him to broadcast his views even after he’d been banned from Saudi news outlets.

Woody Allen and Amazon settled a breach of contract lawsuit that the director had filed after the company backed out of a four-picture movie deal because #MeToo allegations from the 1990s had resurfaced against him.

Damore's memo also said tech's male-skewed employment ranks may be due to biological differences between the sexes. Among other things, it said women can't handle stress as well, which may account for the lower number of them in high-pressure jobs. It said, too, that women "have more openness directed towards feelings and aesthetics rather than ideas."

The designers of the iPhone and the Kindle cite works of science fiction as inspiration. Boeing, Nike, Ford and Intel have hired prototyping, future-casting or world-building ventures for product development.
