    Apple Implant Available

    New Apple Watch Can Be Implanted In Your Hand Or Forehead, Costs Just $666
    September 10th, 2019



    CUPERTINO, CA—Apple has unveiled its next-generation series of iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches. The most exciting product announcement at the event was the new Series 5 Watch, which will be implanted in the user's hand and forehead and will cost just $666.

    The devices will also be required to conduct commerce in the United States starting next year. Affectionately nicknamed "The Mark of the Steve," the watches will be installed into your right hand or forehead by an Apple technician. You'll then be allowed to participate in buying and selling goods in the App Store and everywhere Apple payment solutions are accepted. All stores in the nation plan on switching to exclusive Mark of the Steve payment options next year, so you'll want to get on board with this for sure. There don't seem to be any downsides from what we can tell.

    "We say, 'Whoa!' to thee, O Apple fans!" cried Tim Cook as he announced the product, "for Apple sends the new Watch with wrath, because we know the time until this device is obsoleted by next year's release is short. Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the Steve, for it is a human number: its number is $666, plus tax, on sale now."

    The crowd cheered and fell to the floor weeping. Tech journalists stumbled over themselves to be the first to order the device.
    Google was quick to point out that Android has had this feature for years.

    Zerohedge is a crypto libertarian alternative media website. That's it.

    Nope, it's a far right, conspiracy theory website, not a news source.

    CONSPIRACY-PSEUDOSCIENCE


    Sources in the Conspiracy-Pseudoscience category may publish unverifiable information that is not always supported by evidence. These sources may be untrustworthy for credible/verifiable information, therefore fact checking and further investigation is recommended on a per article basis when obtaining information from these sources. See all Conspiracy-Pseudoscience sources.



    • Overall, we rate Zero Hedge an extreme right biased conspiracy website based on the promotion of false/misleading/debunked information that routinely denigrates the left.


    Detailed Report

    Factual Reporting: LOW
    Country: Bulgaria
    World Press Freedom Rank: Bulgaria 111/180

    History

    Launched in 2009, Zero Hedge is a finance blog founded by Colin Lokey also known with the pseudonym “Tyler Durden,” Daniel Ivandjiiski, and Tim Backshall. According to a Bloomberg Interview the Zero Hedge founders/authors were anonymous until 2016. A Professional Service Subscription is required to read the rest of the interview from Bloomberg, however, a New Yorker article also covered their history.
    Zero Hedge wrote a rebuttal article regarding the Bloomberg interview that can be found here. A quote from the rebuttal reads: “Zero Hedge hired Colin when he approached us over a year ago begging for a job after he was fired with cause from Seeking Alpha, following a fight with a co-worker.”

    Funded by / Ownership

    The website is registered in Bulgaria under the name Georgi Georgiev, a business partner of Krassimir Ivandjiiski.
    According to Rationalwiki the only writer “conclusively” identified is “Dan Ivandjiiski, who conducts public interviews on behalf of Zero Hedge.” The blog generates revenue from online advertising.

    Analysis / Bias

    In a quote from the above New Yorker article they summarize the political stance of the blog, which Lokey told Bloomberg is: “Russia=good. Obama=idiot. Bashar al-Assad=benevolent leader. John Kerry= dunce. Vladimir Putin=greatest leader in the history of statecraft.”
    Zero Hedge’s content has been classified as “alt-right” and has been criticized for presenting conspiracy theories.

    In review, Zero Hedge publishes pro-right wing/Trump articles such as Pat Buchanan: “Trump Calls Off Cold War II.” As well as fake news stories regarding liberals: Anti-Trump Protesters Bused Into Austin, Chicago.

    Editorial content is written under the pseudonym Tyler Durden and usually focuses on conspiracies related to economic collapse. Zero Hedge sources to factually mixed think tanks such as The Mises Institute, which promotes Austrian (Anarcho-Capitalism) economics. Finally, during the Coronavirus outbreak of 2020 they have frequently promoted false and misleading information as evidenced by failed fact checks below.

    Failed Fact Checks (A short list of many)



    Overall, we rate Zero Hedge an extreme right biased conspiracy website based on the promotion of false/misleading/debunked information that routinely denigrates the left. (8/18/2016) Updated (M. Huitsing 7/29/2020)
