This is hilarious.

I owned several of Radio Shack's "100-in-1 Electronic Projects" kits growing up. What I wouldn't have given for one of these!

Rightscorp's "shakedown" business model aside, the big question is: What's your legal liability if you fail to pick a good enough password for your WiFi, and someone else guesses it and uses your WiFi without your permission to transport copyrighted media? Does Rightscorp have to prove which individual(s) violated their copyrights, or can they just sue the Internet subscriber?

That's right! This is a very bad idea.

This morning there was a brief popup/flyover help message (sorry I didn't screen cap it!) that said I should use an option on the three-dot menu to tell Recent I wasn't interested in an article, to help train the system on what I like to see.

However, I can't find any such option, either from the list of articles (like "Hot News" on the home pane), or on the article itself. See attached screen shots for what my three-dot menus look like.

Where is the "not interested" option I should use?

I continue to see odd story excerpting/harvesting issues. The one attached seems to have two sentences chopped up and put together. Let me know if it's helpful to see these when they happen, or not.

I really like the responsiveness of the app (Android). Everything loads really quickly (unlike, uh, a different news app I've been using cough). Nice job on this!

A little feedback on the article snippets (see attached pics): Given the limited real estate, I would jettison the "originally published on" and "appeared first on" things, if you can. (You can see that on the full article if you click through.)

If you have to do these, I certainly wouldn't include them twice ("French Islands" example). And the second example would read better if you offset the title somehow (underline, italics, quotes, etc.) to make clear it's a title. "The post Google converts a coal plant" tripped me up on first read.

Getting "Network problem status 500" this morning; other apps are using network no prob. Multiple "TRY AGAIN" taps, force stop & restart didn't clear it. (It did ask me a topic multiple choice question on restart). v0.9.1
