there is no one expecting dick to taste good though. i’ve never ever once met a cis dude paranoid about his genitals tasting weird or salty or sweaty or whatever. but of course pussy has to taste like fruit and whatever. OF COURSE.
calling a man a “pig” is literally dehumanising how do some people not think there’s anything wrong with that how
Because chicks, fillies, birds and bitches never get dehumanised. Those vixens always get away with this kind of shit. Especially the heifers, they’re the worst. What cows.
With iOS 8 law enforcement can now control your phone and prevent you from taking photos, videos and recordings of officers when they are near. The apps will be disabled within a certain radius. Capturing any police brutality is now prohibited.
Apple employee who demands to remain anonymous
Sept. 17, 2014
This better be a fucking joke/rumor.
Apple holds a patent which mentions that its technology could have applications for law enforcement and government security. For example, the patent description notes that covert ‘police or government operations may require complete ‘blackout’ conditions’.
pause. i read the patent. which, by the way, patents are mind numbingly boring.
now. if i read correctly, they’re not talking about a facet of an operating system, or a chip in a mobile device, they’re talking about an external apparatus which can act on all mobile phones to force certain restrictions: dimming the screen, forcing it to sleep, disabling wireless communication, so on.
this means apple would be building and secretly selling a device to law enforcement. but also, to places (as cited in the patent) that are ‘sensitive environments’ - labs, hospitals, movie theatres, large businesses (to control mobile devices in meetings).
a device like this would have to work for all phones to be, in any way, worthwhile. what’s the point of kill-switching iPhones when there are Galaxies and Lumias and Droids in the hands of well over half of all smartphone owners. the patent does not specify iDevices.
now, apple has installed a kill switch on your phone with your new update. well, sort of. activation lock was introduced with iOS7:
“Activation Lock will be part of iOS 7, the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system expected to roll out in the fall. The feature will require an Apple ID and password before the phone’s “Find My iPhone” feature can be turned off or any data can be erased.”
however, it wasn’t automatically turned on. the big difference between iOS7 and iOS8 is that activation lock is already turned on. this means more people’s phones are protected against theft.
that’s what you downloaded onto your phone with iOS8.
now, i dunno about you, but i think something like this, a leak like this, would be splashed across tech websites and CNN and people would be losing their shit. this quote is six days old, apparently, but there’s nothing on google. the only articles you can find are about the activation lock upgrade. every search for that exact quote leads back to tumblr or reddit, with some posts dating back seven or eight days.
now i’m all for exposing shitty corporate decisions, and the information about apple’s 2012 patent is new to me, so that’s great, but that quote up there is probably really freaking fake, and you should do loads of investigation before you start shitting bricks and googling how to restore iOS7.
a quick search reveals this quote can only be found on Tumblr. the lack of corroboration from other news sources made me strongly suspect it is fake. Tumblr, stop doing this.(via publius-virgilia-maro)
Listen, I know what it’s like to struggle with money. My dad only makes $500,000 a year. Don’t tell me that I don’t understand what it’s like for black people to be poor in the U.S.
*black woman is sexual*
*black woman explicitly states that they’re doing it for themselves and nobody else*
*white feminist pulls up in their white feminist mini van blaring iggy azalea*
*adjusts their tina fey inspired frameless glasses* Ummmmmmmmm im uncomfortable with you doing that it makes me feel as if you’re pandering to the male gaze you should be more in control of your image sweetie:)
This stems from the stereotype of the ‘Jezebel”.
