Wait a bit... then check the heartbleed list on NPR's site to make sure the sites have been fixed, else you'll be giving up more than one password.

YUMSICLES MEET TUMMY

Fill Popsicle mold about 3/4 with gummys. Slowly poor sprite/7up/lemon line soda or whatever your poison, then put Popsicle sticks into mold and freeze.

voila! YUMSICLE

Have an iPhone? You need to know this...
 
Your iPhone quietly tracks where you've been ... and how long you were there
Well, this is awkward and somewhat embarrassing.

I’ve been an iOS user since 2007 and at this point I can practically handle my iPhone blindfolded. But I was somehow mostly unaware of a system setting which allows the device to quietly track my "frequent locations."

Assuming you've got the more general "Location Services" setting toggled on — if you use any sort of location-based feature, app, or service on your device, odds are that you do — the "frequent locations" tracking is toggled on as well, by default. The setting for this feature can be found by navigating to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Frequent Locations. In that spot — which feels like the digital equivalent of the “bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard’” — you can toggle the tracking off and view (or clear) your “frequent locations” history.

The history on my iPhone doesn’t go back more than about a month — likely because I wiped the gadget around that time — and Apple’s support site claims that the data is kept solely on my device, but its existence made me cringe nonetheless. I would’ve liked to explicitly acknowledge whether it’s alright for my iPhone to log these details. I probably would’ve been cool with it — as long as I’m sufficiently informed.

More details about the “frequent locations” feature:

The quote about the locked filing cabinet comes from Douglas Adams’ “The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.”

These folks have taken care of my vehicles for years. The best thing is that I know I will always get good repair with honesty. They are strong about getting it right the first time. They know old cars as well as new.

Great hometown type of cafe for breakfast or lunch. Quick service, consistantly good food at a good price. The only thing that isn't that quick about them is when they bring the check. They'd rather get you another cup of coffee, ya know stay a while...

Always a great place to go. It is truly 5 star in a gas station. They know how to do it, prices for the food that is served here are reasonable. They have become popular since the first times I have eaten here, and the wait staff gets more attentive and a bit quicker each time. A unique place to try. Great selection of food and you won't be disappointed.

Not ready for prime time. I have been here twice now, with the same results both times. I ordered the burger, with a different side than fries. Both times, the order was delivered incorrectly. They made the order right, but still it was incorrect. I had the Fried Pickles. They are unlike any that I have had. The batter has green things in them. (Intentional, but doesn't do a lot for me.) The burger is simply average to not that good. Service is non attentive for the most part. I'm not sure what they get busy with, they allow your drink to run out before they ask you if you would like more. I would have loved this to be a great place; it is close to where I live. Yet, it easily worth a drive to get better.

Very good cusine. Unique, texas style food that isn't the norm in texas. An example is that things like Quail are on the menu. Has never disappointed each time that I have eaten here, however, this is not an inexpensive place to dine. Tim Love's recipies are unique and well done, so it's worth a shot for a nice occasion or a place to impress.
