  • Pastor says car salesman swiped wife's nude photos from his iPhone, sent them to swingers' site

    One, taking nudes of yourself or significant other is a risk. Sure, different strokes for different folks but...know there is a risk once that photo is snapped. Personally, I have none of me or my wife, and we've never taken any.

    Two, storing any important information on your phone is a risk. Sure, it is terribly convenient to have credit card, bank, other info on there. But your phone is your device that is most likely to get hacked, most likely to get stolen/misplaced. It is the worst place to keep important/sensitive information.

    Three, never lend your phone to an un-trusted person. Never let your phone out of your sight in someone else's possession while unlocked. It takes just a few seconds to install malware on any device. That stranger with the broken-down car that just needs to call a friend? Make the call for him/her. The finance guy that just needs to see xyz? Show it to him/her while you hold the phone.

  • Can Hillary still win the election? Teen Becomes Seventh 'Faithless Elector'

    The group believes that it is the responsibility of the 538 electors who make up the nation's Electoral College to stop an unfit person from becoming president.

    If anyone actually believes Clinton is in any way "more fit" to be POTUS than President-elect Trump... It is my belief that person is unfit to make important decisions. I am 100% serious. Political/policy/ideals aside, we can disagree on those and who we want leading the Country. However, if you think President-elect Trump is "unfit" and Clinton is "fit" to be POTUS you, yes you, have serious issues with reality, logic, and reason. Seek professional help - that is not a joke, you need it.

    My take on it: the phrase "Victims must install a malicious app on their phones first..." is key here. It is becoming obvious that with any of the major smart phone systems - Android, Apple, Windows - the primary vulnerability is from the user installing malicious apps. We are our own worst enemies.

    These people are a bunch of whiny little female dogs.

    To any/all of them out there reading this, about to drop a liter of pups over President-elect Trump's win I say this: We have an electoral system, your candidate lost, end of story.

    Whining and complaining and trying to subvert the system just because you don't like the outcome makes you a sore loser. Oh, that's right, many of you grew up in the generations of "everyone's a winner, everyone gets a trophy." You never learned how to lose with dignity or grace. You want to start subverting the system, great, let's go for it. Ok, we've had the election, President-elect Trump won, let's kick obama and his cohorts in crime out now, immediately, today. Why wait until January 20th? Why follow the system? Trump's in, bammy is out, let's do this. Still want to start screwing around with the election system folks? Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.

    Yes, windows can read/write/format media to FAT-32.

    Formatting media wipes all the data off of it. Therefore, before you format (and thus erase) the SD, make sure you still have the original files on the windows machine. You might have accidentally "moved" them to the SD card instead of "copying" them to it.

    Once formatted FAT-32 virtually any machine should be able to read it - windows, linux, mac...

    They just don't get it.

    Nope, they are totally disconnected from the real world. With every announcement or statement of policy I've heard from President-elect Trump, I've heard rumblings from multiple people that he is becoming more popular, not less. This from some people who did not even vote for him. Heard one friend say outright "Gee, I kind of wish I had voted for him. Oh well, glad he won, I think he'll do okay." She had voted for a third party candidate. Interesting, she did not vote for Clinton...

    A wide variety of entertainers (I use the term loosely)...

    I understand the gibe, but I would contend that they are all entertaining, regardless of actual talent levels. A very few actually have some noteworthy talent, the rest are fairly evenly distributed along a continuum from modest to virtually non-existent talent. They got where they are on luck and looks. Mostly luck.

    My contention is that they are all, collectively, entertaining as they run around like pretty little court jesters engaged in a never ending stream of meaningless, self aggrandizing efforts. The spectacle is entertaining. The fact that they don't realize we're laughing at them, not with them, is entertaining.

    ThunderSleeps to randita
    If Stein is so concerned about recounts in close elections...why isn't she pushing for recounts in States where Clinton won by an even closer margin than Trump's wins in these 3 States?

    What about New Hampshire, Maine, Deleware? Clinton's margins of victory in those States were even closer than Trump's in the 3 States Stein claims to be so concerned about?

    Here's a hint for all you lib-lurkers out there or any independents who happen to wander through... Stein is lying. She is being manipulated (maybe willfully) to try to help Clinton steal an election she (Clinton) lost. Yes lost. Don't even start on the popular vote nonesense. One, that's not how our system works, so that argument is pointless. Two, there is evidence of very real voter fraud with many (possibly several million) votes cast for Clinton by people who cannot legally vote. Subtract those, and it is quite likely President-elect Trump also won the popular vote too.

    The upshot is, regardless of Stein's lies, this is about trying to change the election result, not about any concern for a fair election. Stein, Clinton, bammy et. al. - all lying POS.

    That would take the fun out of it, put the risk through the roof. There would still be traffickers out there - they'd just be fewer, better armed, and literally fight to the death rather than surrender to arrest.

    Why? Why are they wasting their time with this? Why are they going to force the Trump administration to waste more time and money un-doing their ill-conceived and rushed regulations?

    Forget 'rat vs GOP, or lib vs conservative - as a simple taxpayer I'm angry at them for this fraud, waste, and abuse. You want my backing for your ideas and your agenda? Well, wasting *my* money is not a good way to get it!

    All their rushed efforts are doing is ensuring they are putting out shoddy work. That gives the Trump administration even more reason to roll it right back first thing. I think the new administration ought to not only roll them back, but investigate the people rushing them through now for fraud, waste, and abuse. If the transition team lets that be known, maybe it will reduce the ardor for ill-conceived regs in the current crop of criminals.

    Well, my advice to anyone reading this - liberal, conservative, libertarian, middle of the road, etc. Hold your nose, click over to the likes of MSNBC or CNN and then to say FoxNews or click around here on FR. Then *you* decide which "side" looks more real or "fake." Decide which end of the spectrum deals with issues that are actually important, or only flash made to look important. You decide, don't let someone try to tell you which is real vs fake news.

    Hint: for my money/time the fake news is what they package up nice and slick, is simple "sound bites," is always "on message" and keeps you marching to their drum. The real deal is often messy, contradictory, and makes you have to think or re-think things.

The real threat of "climate change" is from people just like the current EPA Administrator.

    However, I will bet you a dinner and drinks at the establishment of your choice we couldn't get a liberal to list 10 things that are flat out not racist. Not even 10. I believe they want to reserve the ability to claim literally anything and everything can be racist if it suits their message and agenda.

    If a week goes by and there isn't a new accusation of racism in the news...well that's unusual but it does happen occasionally. If two weeks go by, load your magazines because alien body snatchers have landed and are taking over people and they have started with the liberals.

    It is entertaining though. Someday hopefully I'll have grandkids. I can tell them stories about how I lived through a period when a word was so over-used and incorrectly-used that it became utterly meaningless.

    Good job there Mr. Kerry. Violence against transgender individuals you say? Really? This is cause for concern? This is what you want to focus on?

    Transgender individuals make up tiny fraction of one percent of the population. I'm sure violence against them occurs and is no-doubt serious to them, but guess what? In this regard they've achieved their dream - they're treated just like everyone else. Violence happens against virtually all demographic groups.

    Sure, I'll bet you can trot out a few specific examples selected to elicit an emotional response, bravo, stipulated. When I remain unconvinced you can no-doubt produce shocking numbers showing violence against transgender people is up by some frightfully high percentage. Bravo, you've discovered the statistics of small numbers and how simple mathematics can produce misleading (ahem, even manipulated and intentionally misleading) results.

    But I'm not here to play straight-man to your latest theater of distraction Mr. Kerry. I just have a couple of simple questions. What's going on in the world? When you look around, what do you see? Is there nothing else of note, interest, or concern going on? Is the world such an Eden of peace and tranquility that we should now be concerned with the fates of a relative handful of individuals?

    "...when you literally call everyone associated with Donald Trump a bigot, racist, sexist, Islamophobe, transphobe .., then you lose your credibility..."

    Brings up an interesting point. Do you thing the libtards realize just how much they are enabling President-elect Trump? They are "crying wolf" at anyone and everyone associated with him.

    Granted, they have been doing this for 8+ years, having completely diluted "racist" to a badge of honor, not a slur. Having worn the race card into ineffectual dust they are now expanding their go-to arsenal of vitriol and unfounded reflex-accusations. These too will soon become little more than a background drumbeat of liberal frustrations.

    Back to the enabling part. What liberal socialists/fascists are really doing is a disservice not only to the people they attempt to slander, but to everyone. Suppose President-elect Trump were to appoint an adviser or two who actually did have worrisome characteristics? Who would know? How could anyone ever get that point across? Real cause for concern would be lost in the noise of all the liberal manufactured and exaggerated BS.

    I realize that the modern liberal agenda is predicated upon pushing people to react with emotion rather than reason. Has been and will continue to be unless and until their ruling elite can come up with some better way to manipulate and sway their sheeple. But there is a downside to this approach - the gradual desensitization of the sheeple. Like a drug addict needing an ever stronger fix to get the same high, so too the power elite require ever more stronger words and emotions to induce the required levels of mistrust, envy, and even hate necessary to manipulate their minions. For far too long they have used unfounded slander not as a warning against leaders with poor character, but as a means or attempt to discredit those they don't agree with. (real accepting of diversity there, aren't they, but I digress)

    Eventually, sooner for some, later for others, this wild hyperbole stops becoming persuasive and instead becomes theater of the absurd. I'm reasonably sure that when President-elect Trump is sworn into office that illegal immigrants are not going to spontaneously burst into flame; or that muslims aren't going to run lemming-like into the sea fleeing the Country. Women's nether regions aren't going to ... well, you see my point. But to hear some libtards tell it, these kinds of things and more are in store for us under a Trump Presidency. Too late libtards. When you loudly lament the sky is falling, I reach for the popcorn, not an umbrella.

    I thought Pokemon Go already went.

    Don't know...I never played it. But I did get some enjoyment from it - watching all the people wandering around heads down looking at their phones... Then again, people still do that...

  • Apps Crash More on iPhone Than Android: Report

    We are fast past the golden age of apps.

    You make an excellent point. Most apps out there are worthless or worse. I finally upgraded my phone a few weeks back from a Galaxy 5 to 7 (not the exploding note ;-)... I just looked, by actual count I added 10 apps to it. One of them is a game I'll probably get tired of and remove in a week or two. Two or three others I'm realizing I don't need/use and I'll probably remove them soon. Though the geek in me does like the GPS status app just to fool around and see altitude, fix accuracy, etc.

    One survey claims iOS apps crash more often than Android - ANDROID PING!

    Android Ping!
    If you want on or off the Android Ping List, Freepmail me.

    My take: yea Android but... Then engineer in me realizes that either OS is at the mercy of poorly written apps in this regard. A good OS keeps a faulty app from taking down the whole system, but the app is still going to crash.

    Also the statistics may be skewed if they are reporting raw numbers, not say rates of crashes per hour of use. Hmm, does anyone know, do iPhone users use their devices more/less per day than Android? That'd be kind of interesting.

    One final note, they must not have included anyone on the Android side who uses AT&T's Digital Life App. It gets my vote for absolute worst Android app - ever. I've had it for a couple of years, across at least three upgrades (in the app), and two different Android devices. It still seems to crash/lockup/or simply fail to connect several times a week. This when I'm in wi-fi and/or I have plenty of signal and other networked apps work fine. SMH, rant over...

    I think the excerpt points at the rub... A popular but slightly flaky app can skew the numbers. They didn't provide any long-term trends.

    ...I am particularly offended by the Trump ideology...

    So? I am particularly offended by the "liberal" ideology. That's the great thing in America - the real America - neither one of our opinions is any more or less valid than the others'. So while you whine and bitch and moan about anything and everything that distresses your poor little hear. (yes, I'm being intentionally dismissive) Know that for many many others President-elect Trump's victory is seen as a literal salvation for us and our way of life and true liberty - not quashed under the boot of PC and the whims of the elites.

    When this little girl grows up, someday she'll realize the world doesn't revolve around her and her friends and those that have been indoctrinated to think just like her. Maybe, just maybe she'll realize there are whole host of other opinions and viewpoints and ideologies out there.

  • Obama Is Still Living In His Bubble

    ...between 2009, when Barack Obama took office, and today, as he prepares to retire from it, more than 1,100 Democratic elected officials lost their jobs to Republicans. That number is unprecedented.

    Hey, all along the MSM lapdogs have been touting anything and everything bammy does as "unprecedented." Think they'll pick up on this actually unprecedented feature of bammy's administration?

    What's surprising about this isn't Obama's unwillingness to confront his multitude of failures. Obama's towering ego has never allowed for any such admissions in the past.

    Textbook narcissism. bammy is a walking case-study.

  • Democrat Luis Gutierrez Threatens War If Trump Enforces Immigration Law

    Someone should point out to Gutierrez that you don't get to pick and choose which laws to enforce. Once you start down that path, you end up with cronyism, favoritism, influence peddling...oh, never mind, just look in the DNC charter to see these and more.

    So, rather than becoming any more of a banana republic than bammy has already made us... It is long past time we actually enforced the laws on the books. Don't like it? Change it, you're a legislator, that's your job. Lack the votes/influence to change it? Tough, that's a representative republic in action.
