FoxSports1 should leave fans and viewers out of the dispute with U-verse. 

Last night, I tuned into FoxSports1 for my Marquette Golden Eagles and found darts!  Tonight, I tuned in for more BigEast basketball and found darts again. This time with text on the ticker that hinted at the dispute with U-verse. 

I don't know about the dispute. I do know that FoxSports1 is choosing not to show me the programming I purchased.

The geek inside me wanted to really see it. So while in Sao Paulo, I poured water down the drain.

iMore carries interesting Apple news and positive information on Apple solutions. I listened to episode 442, and am now looking forward to the Photos app for Mac.

I am waiting for season 2 of Marco Polo. We finished season 1 last night. I hate to say it, but I am addicted. The stories are loosely based on accounts from the real historic book. 

It has inspired me to do some VERY light research on the historic topic. I have read (listened to) Marco Polo by Laurence Bergreen, and sought information from other sources. For me, this is a fascinating topic.

Open Letter to Leo Laporte

Dear Leo, 

I have listened to my last MacBreak Weekly. You have turned it into AppleBashing Weekly. 

The show used to feature interesting Apple news and information about #Apple solutions. 

When I sought interesting news about other platforms, I listened to This Week in Tech. 

If I wanted to hear about the advantages of Android, I would have listened to This Week in Android. 

For me, episode 441 was the last straw. Your strong anti-Apple bias is too much. I will seek #Apple news and information elsewhere.

I am reading (listening to) Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies by Nick Bostrom. This is some scary sh!t. We or our children or our grandchildren may be domesticated or enslaved or eliminated by the successors of the machines we design and build today.

Check out this great listen on Audible.com. Superintelligence asks the questions: What happens when machines surpass humans in general intelligence? Will artificial agents sav...
