It just looks frigging creepy.
You seem upset. Perhaps if you actually stopped to analyse articles on their own merit instead of blindly believing that including the word “culture” gives them carte blanche to write about anything that crosses their mind. I like The Verge. But I am not afraid to call things out.
I doubt if its paid product placement, but by the same token I wonder what this has to do with gadgets and technology. I know the Verge is what they always wanted to do, and after giz, then Engadget, maybe the third time is the charm. But if you try to pander to too many audiences then you don’t specialise in anything and risk alienating your fans.

There was this article I think the New York Times did recently about how the fast food and snack industry do actual engineering to determine things like the chemicals to use that inhibit the feeling of fullness, the tensile strength for the perfect crunchy chip and the shade of green for a box of granola bars that would convey an “organic” feel when in fact it was loaded with like six cups of sugar.
So no, three years doesn’t surprise me in the least.
