Nokia 7 Plus stock camera app connecting to Facebook servers

Yesterday while checking my AdGuard logs, I realized that my stock camera app had tried to connect to Facebook servers out of the blue. I haven't used facebook, opened my camera or anything like that. That seemed a bit strange. Today I realized that every single time I take a photo or open up the camera, the camera app tries to connect to Facebook not only once but twice. Facebook wasn't used at all at this time and this happened every single time the camera was opened or a photo was taken. Is...

FAJITA SOUP EASY RECIPE

The sauce at the bottom of a finished fajita mix bowl is something to be truly savoured. Usually barely a quarter-of-a-cup at most this precious gravy provides an explosion of warmth and spice to the tongue and is at least in my mind the best part of the meal.Those few precious sips have inspired me to produce a recipe of Fajita soup that replicates this complicated chorus of flavours.This version of Fajita soup is a true soup with a strong mix of the herbs and spices to help reproduce the Fajit...

Reflections on Rereading “Slaughterhouse-Five”

Kurt Vonnegut’s novel Slaughterhouse-Five or The Children’s Crusade: A Duty Dance with Death was published 50 years ago today, as I was informed by several articles, including this one and this one in the New York Times. Fortunately, I rarely dispose of books that I’ve bought, so I was able to pluck the $1.95 paperback off my shelf and read it again, probably for the first time since my college years in the early 1970s. (Check your own bookshelves; you might find a copy as well.) ... more...

That’s a Week Excuse

It snowed again last night, which is not at all unusual for March/April, and is still inexplicably heartbreaking. I got up, took one look at it, thought about what this all means to spring and hope and then I thought “What do I care. I am going to Texas.”  In three days I will get on a plane and I will go somewhere that the sun is shining and it is warm and flowers are blooming (maybe even the bluebonnets which is very exciting) and I will walk outside and not once while I am there, will I think...

When is a failed business model worth revisiting?

One answer is when you apply it in a completely different business segment. Thanks to my new favorite business podcast, Snacks Daily, I learned that the MoviePass all-you-can-watch model, which is circling the drain, is being embraced by the NY Mets in a new subscription campaign offering standing-room-only (SRO) access to almost every home game. That's brilliant. Why? For most MLB teams, revenue is not just about filling seats but also selling high-margin concessions. MoviePass is failing parti...

still fussing with bad formatting

I think my current and hopefully remaining problem is caused by a bug in how the kindle displays an azw3. The epub has blank lines between lines of text in a paragraph, i.e., two line feeds/newlines between lines between the opening and closing p tags. When I look at the azw3 on the kindle that calibre produced it starts a new line where the blank lines are (and doesn't display a blank line). Calibre left the blank lines when it converted to azw3. If I change calibre's conversion settings to ...

8'' ereader with good file organization

I’m looking to replace my old Pocketbook Pro 912 because it’s really heavy. Over 500g! I lug it around everywhere, which causes strain on my shoulder. That’s started being a problem now that my new job also causes strain. That’s why I’m looking at lighter alternatives. As far as size goes, I’m used to a big 9,7 inch screen, so 7 inch screens feel tiny to me. However, I think I could tolerate downsizing to 8 inches, so that’s where I’ve focused my research this far both for weight and price reaso...

Samsung shipping a new 8 inch Tab A with S Pen

Samsung is releasing a new Galaxy Tab A 8 inch tablet, the SM-P205. Reportedly will have 1920x1200 resolution (est 283 PPI), 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, and an SD card. Also will reportedly use the previous gen S Pen, which does not required charging. My guess is this is to stay competitive with the Ipad Mini. It'll almost certainly come in at a lower price point.

Glo HD Broken beyond repair?

Hi everyone! I came across this forum as I seem to have (extra-ly) broken my already broken Kobo Glo, and you guys seem to be quite knowledgable. So I figured, if there is any way to fix it, you would know! While I was trying to replace the broken screen, I seem to have broken something off of the back of the motherboard (?), see the picture attached (yeah, I'm an idiot, I know :p). Is there anyway to fix this, or is the e-reader lost forever? :tongue3: Thanks in advance! Stephanie ...

Swat Team Takes Children from Home Because of “Potential Liability” ~ VIDEO

Opinion Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- -On 26 February, 2019, the Chandler Police SWAT team raided a home where the children were sick. The parents had not committed any crime, nor was any child in any substantial danger. The raid itself created far more danger than the danger it was supposed to mitigate. It was a perfect storm of the conflict of rights and the Nanny State, parental responsibility and bureaucratic fear of liability. In short, it resulted from the basic conflict in our society betwe...
