Well then...  If you value your #privacy , time to ditch your LG Smart TV.
Please don't let me down Samsung... (I'll come back with the results of my traffic sniffing later.)

Edit: Well didn't see a whole lot from Samsung TV, I tried bouncing back and forth between channels and I saw no data being sent off anywhere.  Although I can't say for certain as there is some SSL communication between the TV and something hosted on Amazon EC2.
Earlier this month I discovered that my new LG Smart TV was displaying ads on the Smart landing screen. After some investigation, I found a rather creepy corporate video advertising their data collection practices to potent...

Hey +Android Police found another change in 4.3. The toggle for automatic brightness has changed. Looks much prettier than that check box.

Hi - I'm testing Google+ from Earth orbit, onboard the International Space Station. If I can make it work from here, I hope to post more in the future.

Why I'm Not Supporting OS X

TL;DR version: OS X is so fragmented it makes my colon hurt.

There's been a lot of pressure on me to bring some of my very successful iOS apps to OS X. I was totally planning on doing it. Gotta give my fans what they want, right? Then I was looking around the online Apple Store. Did you know they had that? Personally I never miss a chance to visit an Apple Store in person. I feel like a vegan Buddhist visiting the Sistine Chapel. I guess the online thing is there for people in 3rd world countries like Kansas that might not have an Apple Store on every block yet. But I digress.

So I'm browsing the online store. Do you realize that you can get a MacBook Air with two different screen sizes? The MacBook Pro is available in three different screen sizes! Get this, the MBP and MBA are both available with 13" screens, but they are different resolutions!!

But wait, it gets worse. Apple also sells desktop Macs for some reason. They have iMacs, but these come in two different screen sizes! Fine. They also have Mac Minis and Mac Pros that don't have a monitor. Even worse, they let people plug whatever monitor they want into those things! I've heard horror stories of people plugging in multiple monitors. I'm not making that up.

This kind of fragmentation is unimaginable. I assume that asshat Tim Cook must have come up with all of this and stealthily released this army of madness once The Great One had passed from this plane. There's no way He would have put up with this crap.

So that's it! Sorry kids, but I just can't afford to support such a fragmented ecosystem. To do so would require me to buy one of each of these devices so that I could test on them and make sure my apps are just magical as they are on iOS. That's just too expensive and time consuming for it to be profitable.
