Any Canadians watching the World Juniors Hockey are being blitzed with ads claiming that chocolate milk is a great recovery drink. 

Instead of throwing something at my TV I'll post this.

Bullshit. 

Maybe an ultramarathoner needs those sugar calories, but for the rest of us my guess is nope, we don't. 

As a trainer for kids hockey teams I've had parents suggest getting the kids chocolate milk between tournament games so these ads are 'working'.

When you try to dig into research many reports subtly switch between 'chocolate milk' and 'milk' when talking about benefits. Milk is fine. Milk with sugar is not better.

OK, back to the awesome hockey...

I thought I got everyone in the house to update but a kids iPhone got hacked while traveling through Upstate NY and Vermont.

Bad guys got a gmail password as the phone grabbed email in the background at a hotspot somewhere.

If Google hadn't blocked a suspicious login attempt and notified us we'd be none the wiser.

Have you updated EVERYONE's iPhones, iPads, and OSX machines in your house?

PS: If you're one of those people who thinks Apple security is better I'd suggest you review your belief system. All computing devices are insecure in some way, especially once human peripherals are attached.

Nice review of 5 light wind kites, by a bunch of guys they found on the beach. OR Flite seems to stand out for them.

As a non-developer, this guidance on messaging patterns made sense to me. Any cool kids got opinions on whether I should take it at face value?
