A Revelation on Trump

1 Share

rdansky:

I think I’ve finally got this Trump thing figured out. Consider:

  • He’s a rich kid whose dad bought him out of trouble.
  • He breaks the law. A lot.
  • He’s a rich businessman who routinely stiffs small businesses and drives them out of business.
  • He has secret documents that, if they ever got out, could destroy him.
  • He hangs around with bad dudes, including an ex-KGB agent, mobsters, and Nazis. 
  • His plans are convoluted and nonsensical, and won’t actually work in the real world. 
  • He does mean things to small children.
  • He lies all the time.
  • He’s great at inciting others to go fight, but can’t take a punch himself.

So basically, he’s every 1980s action movie villain combined into one. I’m just worried that in order to defeat him, we’re either going to have to organize a combination breakdancing competition/talent show or have a low-speed car chase that ends with one vehicle going over a cliff and then exploding in midair.

UNJUSTLY MALIGNED #63: “Armageddon” with Alison Baker

Drills! In! Spaaaaaace!

According to folklore, NASA uses ARMAGEDDON as a test to see how many scientific inaccuracies potential recruits can spot, while Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck are saving the world.

It must be a really easy test, because there are A LOT.

But Alison Baker doesn’t care, and certainly doesn’t want to miss a thing. She throws scientific accuracy to the (solar) wind, jumps a canyon in low-g, and revels in NASA’s credits burn, as she rockets through her love of Michael Bay’s extravaganza. Nothing will survive — not even bacteria!

Apple is planning to eliminate many iOS parental controls over next year?

1 Comment

This sound like quite bad if true (emphases mine) …

SimpleMDM | iOS 10 MDM Enhancements To Expect

… Apple plans to deprecate some non-supervised restrictions at some point, though not immediately, in the iOS 10 series. The restrictions slated for deprecation are:

Disable App installation and removal
Disable FaceTime
Disable Siri
Disable Safari
Disable iTunes
Prohibit explicit content
Disable iCloud documents and data
Disable multiplayer gaming
Disable adding GameCenter friends

These restrictions will become available only for supervised devices.

The result would be to make iOS devices like Android devices — restrictions require a mobile device management solution (schools and businesses, also packaged for home use).

The only way this could be a net positive for parents (and those who care for special needs and vulnerable adults) would be if Apple were to add supervision capabilities to iCloud.

I’m going to look for more information on this.
