Early executive and chief designer at Faraday Future, Richard Kim, resigns; Disney sues Redbox over movie download codes; and Tinder’s artificial intelligence feature suggests who to ‘Super Like.’
Faraday Future’s Richard Kim, who was an early executive at the troubled electric car firm and the company’s chief designer, has resigned, The Verge reports. Kim was also one of five “founding executives” at Faraday Future — the first core group brought onto lead the company. With his departure, three of those five have now left the company in the last four months.
In a new lawsuit that could test copyright boundaries, Disney is suing Redbox for allegedly selling digital codes that allow consumers the ability to access digital copies of movies, The Hollywood Reporter reports. The DVD kiosk rental company allegedly disassembled a product package and then sold codes separately in what Disney asserts is a violation of copyright law.
Tinder announced that it would suggest “Super Liking” potential matches to users based on their previous swiping actions, TechCrunch reports. The new Super Like feature isn’t publicly available to all Tinder users at this point, as it’s being testing in New York and Los Angeles.
