WordPress 5.0 Armagedon #1332

WordPress 5.0 has been released I will not be one of the first to upgrade largely because we have a lot of editors here and one thing I have found is that big UI changes like this will always cause a certain amount of chaos. Plus I want to give the automatic team a few days to fix some bugs that will likely show up in millions of roll-outs. I am not a fan of the new Guttneberg editor and will likely load the plugin to use the old editor. I will let the team decide which way to go. Big week for me ahead in the podcasting space, which I talk about on the show.

Tumblr to Clean up the Porn #1331

Tumblr, in my opinion, has always been known for a haven of adult content is semi-cracking the whip starting on 12-17. After being removed from the Apple App store for finding inappropriate content related to child abuse. But in there statement, they say they will allow certain types of adult-themed content. So while they are on one hand cracking down they are leaving room for artistic content. One person’s art is another person’s porn so we will see how they accomplish this. Lot’s of great feedback from the last show, which makes me wonder was it the audio only format?

DJI Osmo Pocket #1330

DJI Osmo Pocket has been announced and at the rate, DJI is announcing products they are going to continue to dominate in certain product categories. The new device is quite compelling but with mobile phones now having great stabilization some of these products will be challenged. I am back in Hawaii until I need to depart for my daughters delivery of my first grandchild. So the countdown is on.

$1475 to Repair the MacBook Pro WTF #1329

Apple Support wanted $1475 to repair the MacBook Pro which is 700+ more than the customer support representative quoted over the phone. I am in utter shock. So after an Ohana member turned me onto a CBC investigative report on gouging of repair cost via Apple. I have sent the MacBook to a respected computer repair group in NYC. We will see what they come up with an estimate to repair the MacBook.

A Cat Destroyed my Son’s MacBook Pro #1328

Yes, A cat destroyed my Son’s MacBook Pro. You are simply not going to believe this story a curious cat and a series of incredible events caused the utter destruction of my Son’s MacBook Pro which Apple is predicting will cost $700 to repair. The cat is still alive but you’re not going to believe it. My son is utterly devastated on what has happened as there is more to the story then a destroyed MacBook there is potential data loss as well from a series of unfortunate events. The Apple repair guy thought he had heard it all. But hey crazy stuff happens and this is about as crazy as it comes.

Are Kids GPS Watches Being Tracked? #1327

Are Kids GPS Watches being tracked? If a report from The Register proves to be true I think I would smash my Kids GPS tracking watch into a million pieces but that’s just me and I know already that the majority of us are being tracked by equally bad folks as well from the advertising and data analysis firms. But the kids gps tracking is much more sinster aand could endanger your kids to predators. You need to reach out to the companies and make sure your kids GPS watch is not affected here.

MoviePass Marketing Run by an Idiot! #1326

MoviePass marketing is being run by an idiot. It’s obvious that they cannot hire anyone with half a brain with the money they are stealing from consumers in my opinion. The latest email they sent out was so bad that a five year old could have put together a better marketing message. All they did was piss more people off and remind them how horrid their service is. I truly do not understand how they are still in business. I have a pile of news for you today along with some insight into internet based tv services.

An App that Tracks your Voting History and Political Affiliation #1325

An App that tracks your voting history and political affiliations is now available for others to take a closer look at your political activity. While much of this information has been available to political parties it is now availble to anyone which to me is a bit unnerving considering the political climate we are in at this point and the absolute craziness going on in the world. I also look at have the elections been hacked and do you turst the forthcoming results.
