Amazon to stop shipping CRaP

Seems Amazon is tired of losing money on CRaP and will be forcing vendors to pay for shipping. They are purportedly putting a strong arm on companies like Coke to ship items like SmartWater on their own dime. Only Amazon would get away with this kind of demand. But really who buys SmartWater online and have it shipped to there home. Lots happening here on the home front actual chaos is in progress and I am trying to stay ahead of it all.

Texting Tax in California #1334

A Texting Tax in California will most likely be showing up on your mobile bill. The state has decided that residents of California should be taxed for texting as a way to squeeze more cash out of its citizens. Call me not surprised in the least as this action is exactly the kind of thing that the state would do. Very late start to the show tonight had to celebrate a birthday.

Huawei CFO under Arrest #1333

Huawei CFO has been locked up in Canada appears to be awaiting extradition to the United States for Iran Sanction violations and the Chinese are very pissed off. Lot’s of diplomatic activity going on. One wonders if this is just a little bit of gamesmanship for the trade deal. But one thing for sure is that this is a pretty big deal and will be something the team here at GNC will be watching. Lot’s of updates as we head into the holiday period.

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?
