Another observation: Lately I work a lot with meetup.com. I RSVP to meetup events and I have it configured to integrate with my Google Calendar. Often when leaving work I see what meetup event I'm scheduled to go to and I select that then tap on the location and Google Maps comes up to guide me. How would I perform such a maneuver in Automate? I mean if I get Google Maps up navigating to the location and I switch to Automate I now have yet another map. The map I'm navigating in Google Maps does not become the map I see when I hit the map button in Automate. In fact, there's route in Auotmate. And there's no easy way for me to go to my calendar and tell Automate "Hey I wanna go here!".

Here's what I don't care about. What I actively delete from my video stream: Any kind of "shooter story". The plot is played out. It's like a bad reality show. I'm no longer interested. Actually I wasn't interested in the first place!

Any kind of weather disaster, especially in the "fly over states". We don't care.

Blacks supposedly being treated unfairly. I've heard this same tail since I was a young boy. The story's old, and extremely boring.

Stupid shit republicans say. So what. There are idiots in every party. It doesn't represent the entirety of political thought and it most definitely doesn't represent my political thought, especially since I'm thoroughly libertarian. There's more than D's and R's.

People saying the sky is falling. It's been falling for literally millennia. For gawd's sake, get a new stick!  

Does anybody got anything new? Anything interesting?

Ah ICE is so good at their job! Most Americans have no need for Immigration thus they do not know who terrible that department is run. Here's a sample.
A man suspected in the shooting death of a woman at a busy San Francisco tourist destination has seven felony convictions and has been deported five times, most recently in 2009, a federal agency said Friday.

Oh and I still haven't found a way in Automate to have the turn by turn directions spoken to me.

And yet automate does a map. And a funky map. One with out the blue like, as has been noted. One who is too small to really see. The card that is display obscures the route. Why not have a button there that sends a message to whatever nav app is being used to turn on or off the voice turn by turn?

If not then I have to do a number of taps to switch to the nav app, tell it to be quiet and then a number set of taps to get back to Automate.

I've experienced a few times where Automate seems to not be responsive at all. Can't change to anything else. Have to kill it.

Another thing is that to my surprise I had Automate running and had it navigating. But then the screen timeout turned the screen off. Can't Automate keep the screen on? Google Maps can. Shouldn't Automate too? I mean provided say you are powering up...

I can't seem to find where I could toggle on the voice navigation. That should be on the front plate of the Maps app. Even though it's not there I can't seem to find where it is at all.

+Andrew DeFaria you could've just said "a microphone icon to toggle on and off spoken directions would be nice", everything else was TMI.

Wait, I'm confused... If you, as the Pres says, "If you give a woman, or a man for that matter, without his or her knowledge, a drug and then have sex with that person without consent - that's rape" extremely different from "if you ... have sex with that person without consent - that's rape". I mean the fact (proven or not) that you gave a woman or a man a drug to induce a man or woman to have sex with you is pretty much irrelevant as far as the legal issues are concerned. The relevant legal issue is whether or not consent had been granted. if it has not then it's (possibly) rape. Otherwise is it not rape and should never be considered rape.
