Hey +Twitter.  Promoted tweets are spam.  If I want to see it, I'll follow it.

If it shows up in my feed and I am NOT following it, I will report the ad and I will block the sender.

And I think everybody else should too.

Google, get your shitty, obnoxious, ad-supported Pandora rip-off crap out of my Google Music library.  If you're looking for ways to drive away loyal users, you just found the top of the list right there.
As Apple Music nears its June 30th launch, Google is getting more aggressive about trying to sell users on its own Google Play Music service. Today the company is launching a free, ad-supported...

Dear Everyone Who Has a Website,

If you have embedded video that automatically starts playing when I visit your site to read an article I will block that element using Adblock Plus so that I never see it again.

Don't auto-play videos.  It's obnoxious.

I find myself on a lot of the same news sites over and over again, so it works well for me.

So here's another seller on +Amazon.com you should never buy anything from. They're deceptive about product condition and overpriced.
To initiate a return, please visit Amazon's Online Return Center to request a return authorization from the seller. For questions about a charge that has been made to your credit card, please contact Amazon. For questions about how to place an order, search Amazon Help.

Here's a seller to avoid on Amazon. They sent me a product with a missing part, refused to do anything other than a full return/exchange (which is stupid considering that everything else about the product was just fine) and then when I tried to work with them on it, they tried suppressing my feedback on Amazon. Great customer service, guys! You just earned my sharing my negative experience about you with everyone I know (instead of doing simple things to resolve the situation)!

You only barely did.  They removed it because they felt my negative rating for this was for the product and not the vendor.  It wasn't.  It was because the vendor was unreasonable and hard to deal with.  Ultimately the problems with this order were due to them, not the product itself.

particularly describing - I wonder how the "original intent" assholes like Scalia will spin that when it gets to them.

+Pandora, please, please add the ability to perma-ban artists.  It seems really stupid that even though I have thumbs-downed Linkin Park every single time any one of their songs has shown up in literally any Pandora station since I've been listening to Pandora from the very beginning, Linkin Park songs still show up.

Just give me a blacklist!  Please?  Pretty please?  That's all I'm askin' here.

Signal boost for my friend John's son Tom.
 
It's that time of year again for the JDRF fundraising walk here in MN.  

We walk for my son Tom.  This is him pictured, at a recent belt ceremony at Kung Fu. He loves Kung Fu.  I can't believe how hard he works at practice, usually ending up drenched with sweat.  Some of his other favorite things include the Chinese immersion school he attends, and of course, soccer.  I think these all may be life-long pursuits of his.  He also continues to be the guy that wants to make sure everyone is included and enjoying themselves, and loves helping others.  

As some of you know, Tom has Type 1 Diabetes.  Type 1 is an auto-immune disease (not caused by diet and lifestyle).  It affects every thing he does. When exercising, he has to be sure his blood sugar doesn't drop too low. At other times, it can go too high. Almost all of the time, he is able to catch it before it gets too high or low because he is now wearing a continuous glucose monitor. It's a device that attaches to him (we change it once a week) that allows him to view his glucose levels whenever he wants.  We can also view that info on our smart phones.  So when he's at school all day, we can keep an eye on him too.  

This sort of innovation wouldn't have been possible without groups like the JDRF pushing for more and better treatment options, and eventually a cure.   That is why on February 20, 2016,  I'll be joining in a walk to help raise funds for the JDRF.  This is the second year we've done this, and after seeing all the incredible things that have happened in managing Diabetes, I'm confident and proud to be able to support my son, and the JDRF, in this way. If you can help, please do so at http://tiny.cc/TomJDRF2016.  

Thank you very much.

I'm so glad the company I work for has better customer service than +virginmobileusa.
“More #customerservicefailure from @virginmobileusa. Is my ticket still open? Is anyone looking into it? Do you even care? I'm guessing not.”

It doesn't seem to matter how many times I bring up security concerns to them, Virgin Mobile doesn't seem to care. It's 2015 and they still won't allow me to secure my account with anything other than a 6-digit numeric password.  And my user name is my phone number, and I'm not able to change that either.

And today I had to call them to have them reset it for me, because somehow it got changed without my knowledge.  Did someone guess my ridiculously unsecure "password" and gain access to my account?

Sadly, I have no way of knowing, and they didn't seem concerned when I expressed dismay at how easily my account may have been compromised.

Fortunately, there's no way to purchase anything in my name by gaining access to my account -- because Virgin Mobile refuses to allow users to secure their accounts, I refuse to have any permanently set up payment options in there.

And I strongly urge anyone else who is a Virgin Mobile customer to not store credit card numbers in their accounts.  It's not a matter of "if" there is a major security breach there, it is a matter of when.

It's telling how little +virginmobileusa cares about information security considering that this article is two years old and customers still can't set anything other than 6-digit numeric-only passwords on their website.  

Apparently nobody bothered explaining to them that this is just asking for a very public data breach.  Ever heard of Target, +virginmobileusa ?
A worrying security vulnerability that could affect Virgin Mobile's 6 million subscribers in the US has been unearthered by Kevin Burke, a developer with Twilio. Writing on his personal ...

I should also point out that when I asked them about this 6-digit numeric-only issue, in their reply to me they emailed me my current password IN PLAIN TEXT over unsecured email.  Thanks, guys.  Why don't you just post my account information on your public website?  If you're not even going to bother pretending to care about your customers' information, you might as well be wide open with it and just let anyone in.
