    Some drink orders are more complicated or confusing than others. Richard Drew / AP Photo I used to work as a Starbucks barista and some drinks were more time-consuming, confusing, or frustrating to make than others.  Ordering cappuccinos without foam or upside-down caramel macchiatos is a needlessly complicated way of ordering a fairly basic drink.  S'mores Frappuccinos have some special ingredients, so they take a while to make.  Drinks with a ton of added sweeteners and iced green-tea lattes can also be frustrating to prepare.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. I worked as a Starbucks barista for two years and although I love the chain and its variety of drinks, I don't remember every order fondly....
    The customer isn’t always right.

    Multiple apps have recently come under fire for accessing smartphone features without permission and the latest service to get caught in the act is Instagram. Apple's iOS 14 update shows a green icon on the control panel of an iPhone or iPad screen when an app attempts to infiltrate the camera in the background. A user shared a screen shot of the notification on the control panel after scrolling through their Instagram feed – it is a round circle with the 'recorder indicator' in the center. The notification feature is set to roll out with the new operating system later this year, but early adopters have spotted a number of apps quietly accessing clipboards, including TikTok, LinkedIn and Reddit. ...

    By Matthew Boyle, Bloomberg Walmart has some advice for employees who have the unenviable task of reminding shoppers to wear masks: Stay calm, listen intently and show understanding. But if customers insist on walking in without one, staffers should just get out of the way. That’s the message from a short training video for Walmart’s new “Health Ambassador” role.
