See what Facebook ads you actually clicked in ‘Recent Ad Activity’

 You might think you’re impervious to Facebook’s ads, but you probably do get seduced every once in a while. But because ads aren’t always permanently available anywhere, it can be impossible to find a Facebook ad that led somewhere you want to revisit.

iOS 11 is a fresh start for the iPad

 After reading back the preview I wrote back in June, the dominant tone was that iOS 11 is so different that it takes a while to get used to it: I’m not going to lie to you.
