Welcome to the second Pulse!
Coincidently or not, in the second Pulse, whether you’re an Apple user or a Samsung fan, a Facebook user or an avid Tweeter, you’ve got something to be mad about your favourite tech giant - even if it’s Tesla or Netflix! When did data misuse, fake news, fake photos and broken promises become our everyday?
By the way, this issue is a lot longer than the first one. Please send your feedback. You can press reply and get straight back to me. 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Saw this on Twitter last Monday and it got me thinking…
I locked my phone and was thinking about can’s tweet when I noticed a nasty scratch on my iPhone’s screen… I was so annoyed I had to tell someone about it. So…
