Thursday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People
iPhone 4S and i05: Did you know that you can tweak your iPhone so that it flashes instead of rings? (Would you WANT to do that?!) Also you can reprogram auto-correct. And you really need to ask Siri to“open the pod bay doors” (a la 2001 : A Space Odyssey) or ask her “what’s the meaning of life?” Because she has a smart answer for you! Do it! Do it a FEW times. More here.
Disney: In what Michelle Obama’s called a ‘Game Changer’, Disney has banned the advertising of junk foods across its entire corporation, meaning that the ads will no longer appear on Disney television channels or websites. The ban also includes the cartoon slots on some other channels, which are estimated to beam into one in four American homes each day. Great news! This could be the beginning of something BIG! I wonder if this means no more licensing Disney characters to fast food outlets too… More at the ABC.
Graphic, Violent News Reports: Okay. This is not really a news story. It’s about the way news is reported. Over the last few weeks there have been some horrific crimes involving things that I’d rather not mention. I’m sure you know the ones. I think it’s really horrible the way they are reported in such graphic detail on TV and radio at all hours of the day. SURELY we can use less descriptive, sensational terms when we report these crimes. SURELY we don’t need to know all the details. What do you think? Tell me in the comments, please? Am I being over sensitive?
