  • Apple quality pulled Jennifer Aniston back for 'The Morning Show'

    The show was purchased when Apple "Didn't have walls yet or telephones," according to Aniston. What does she mean by ‘walls’ ? And no telephones? If she means cellphones that Implies it must have been longer than 12 years ago. Her statement just does not make sense.
    It means their efforts in TV didn’t even have offices yet. It was so early that the sale of their show even preceded them having offices, or proper channels for contacts, etc.

    Clearly there are not enough LGBTQ2 people on this forum that it took the tenth post to mention Pride month!
    That's in June. This isn't only May, but the beginning of May. What I assume was the person that wrote the article mentioned well before post 10 that there are no LGBT events this month.
    Again, Friday, May 17 is International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.

    I see some various theories floated, but why is the #1 most obvious theory not being mentioned?

    It's a very colorful looking rainbow. Probably something to do with some LGBT stuff. That's what I would place my money on if this were a betting game.
    That's also a possibility - there aren't any major LGBT events coming up however.
    Friday, May 17 is International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. So that’s a possibility.

    So no time spent in this ad talking about the high rate of brain damage caused by repeat concussions in NFL football players, eh?
    Or the fact that they continue to be given “non-profit” status. The NFL is simply another tax shelter for the Über wealthy. And, to add insult to injury, they are more than happy to get the taxpayer to pay for their stadiums. But I guess that lands at the feet of the politicians and the general public who grant them approval.

    Stupid people. Don’t even know when they’re being taken advantage of. 
    I’m not a fan of the NFL, but this isn’t true. The only part of the NFL that ever was a nonprofit was the league office, which acted as a trade association (a 501(c)6 like other industry trade associations, as opposed to a charity which is a 501(c)3) and didn’t perform business activities. The moneymakers are the teams. And their league office gave up their nonprofit status in 2015.
  • Hands on with the Netatmo HomeKit smart doorbell cam

    This is a horrible company, with defective products, and horrible customer service -- in my experience with them. I ordered all three of their original products -- the indoor/outdoor thermostat, the rain gauge, and the wind speed monitor.  The thermostat worked fine for a year, then the waterproof outdoor sensor leaked. The rain gauge never worked after hours spent on the phone with Netatmo, and the wind gauge never worked out of the box. Netatmo refused to replace any of them, or acknowledge they had any fault. The continually blamed the malfunctioning products on user error. 

    Maybe your milage varies, but I will never buy another Netatmo product. 
    That’s odd, because my experience with Netatmo has been quite the opposite. Their products have worked so flawlessly and been so rock-solid for me that I look forward to each new product they announce. I hope to get this one as soon as I can!
