Last one for now. And significantly more on-brand for me. And, wow. I love that Delphi has a separate “It’s Shady” versus “It’s bad”. On selling car warranties by phone…

Ask Delphi: Accumulating wealth. Delphi says: “It's good” delphi.allenai.org/?a1=Accum…. The irony is strong with this one.

I wonder if they understand the irony here. nypost.com/2021/10/18/gop-re… This is essentially “Star Wars” part 2, and we’re playing the role of Russia this time. Nuclear threat deterrence isn’t about missile defense. It’s about making sure no one else survives if you get attacked.

Right now I’m thinking of the net impact of giant players like Facebook when things go wrong. I’m not an active Facebook user, but am aware of the outage. I’ll bet this outage already has a body count. I wonder how many life-critical things foolishly use “Login with Facebook”.

While the @letsencrypt root migration is not what I’d call a disaster, my morning so far has surfaced more issues than many anticipated. I’m actually impressed by the number of otherwise well-run middle-boxes I’m seeing among my client base. That and out-of-date browsers.

This is the sort of self-inflicted injury that will yield regulation for Apple. If a paid app makes it in, you’re past the point where you get to classify it is duplicative/spammy. A bug fix for an app already in isn’t duplicative or spammy.
Thank goodness we have Apple gatekeeping all iOS applications for over a billion people. Their expert app reviewers are all that is protecting consumers from a blind game developer releasing an iOS 15 crash fix to his accessible hangman game that people have already paid for.

Will someone who knows please tell me how Amazon links my twitter and web behavior to my Amazon account recommendations? I launched a joke website, meth.gay, a week ago. Amazon kindle recommendations are now:

I just read the term “carceral system” and thought it say caracal at first. Which leads me to wonder…. What if we replaced the carceral system with a caracal system?

I have discovered some new garbage entertainment and it is called Neighborhood Wars on @AENetworks. It’s like the trashiest parts of @Nextdoor but caught on home cameras and cellphones. I love it and I feel dirty because I love it.

Amazon’s Echo / Alexa are getting bolder and more annoying with their marketing attempts. When I saw the green light and said “Alexa, get notifications” earlier this morning, I did not expect to be offered a Kindle book to purchase.

Especially since, if one were the type to be concerned about appearances, one might not want their preference for Erotic Literature involving Gay Werewolves to be so succinctly spelled out in the title on offer.

The Biden admin as recently as July has called for the return of Net Neutrality rule making. They should reclassify internet service as a Title II service and attach customer privacy regulations.

I feel like I haven’t started any good flame wars lately, so anyways… What if the only good use for JSON is as a container for base64 encapsulated well-formed ASN.1 documents?

#lawtwit Has anyone ever written an Intellectual Property Musical so that someone else can plagiarize it so that you can reenact scenes from an Intellectual Property Musical in Federal court?
