@brentsimmons Sounds like a good idea. Looks like NoScript for Firefox does this.


15 Months of Fresh Hell Inside Facebook | WIRED

Nicholas Thompson and Fred Vogelstein writing for WIRED

Near the end of their exchange, Zittrain asked Zuckerberg what Facebook might look like 10 or so years from now. The CEO mused about developing a device that would allow humans to type by thinking. It sounded incredibly cool at first. But by the time he was done, it sounded like he was describing a tool that would allow Facebook to read people's minds. Zittrain cut in dryly: "The Fifth Amendment implications are staggering." Zuckerberg suddenly appeared to understand that perhaps mind-reading technology is the last thing the CEO of Facebook should be talking about right now. "Presumably this would be something someone would choose to use," he said, before adding, "I don't know how we got onto this."

This is the end of the article, which sums it up pretty well.


Android Q's Focus Mode is a good idea. Hope something like that comes to iOS.

How Taxpayers Covered a $1,000 Liquor Bill for Trump Staffers (and More) at Trump’s Club — ProPublica

Derek Kravitz writing for ProPublica

A few months after Trump’s inauguration, the State Department proposed a contract that would pay $200,000 for all room costs for federal employees who stay at Mar-a-Lago over the first term of his presidency. But Mar-a-Lago rejected the government’s proposal. Instead, Trump’s resort bills the government the maximum permitted by federal rules: 300% of the government’s per diem rate, which works out to $546 per night.

I've said it before, Trump has figured out how to funnel the tax payers' money directly into his bank account.
