Crystal ad blocker will soon let some ‘acceptable’ ads through by default | iMore

Good, there are good ad networks out there, like The Deck, as long as this is a way to white list the networks that don’t track and not another extortion scheme.

How Ayn Rand Helped Turn the U.S. Into a Selfish, Greedy Nation | Alternet

28.09.2015 02:00

Only rarely in U.S. history do writers transform us to become a more caring or less caring nation. In the 1850s, Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) was a strong force in making the United States a more humane nation, one that would abolish slavery of African Americans. A century later, Ayn Rand (1905-1982) helped make the United States into one of the most uncaring nations in the industrialized world, a neo-Dickensian society where healthcare is only for those who can afford it, and where young people are coerced into huge student-loan debt that cannot be discharged in bankruptcy.

I hate Ayn Rand as a Philosopher, as a intellectual, and most of all as a human being; my hate for her, the person, and her, the ideas she stood for can’t be described with words. I expect I’m just as annoyed when I read or hear “Ayn Rand” as a biologists are when they hear about Creationism.

The Brooks Review

Native Advertising can without doubt be a problem, and become a bigger one, but I don’t think it is a problem as long as it is clear what is ads and what is not.

Like many of you, I pre-ordered a phone a couple of weeks ago, and today it came: a 64GB Space Gray iPhone 6S Plus. There’s a lot I haven’t done with this new phone yet, but I’ll be taking notes for a review. Here are some initial impressions until then:

Great post, I have almost made up my mind to go for the 6S Plus, when I upgrade later this year.

Backblaze B2

I love Backblaze, their online backup is fantastic, and I would consider B2 as a fantastic alternative to S3 for your app; their support are probably way better than Amazon.

Popular text editor Drafts has been updated with support for both iOS 9 and watchOS 2. Drafts has added support for Spotlight search, along with the new multitasking capabilities on the iPad, along with a native Apple Watch app.

Fantastic! Drafts is probably the app I use the most on my iPhone.

Import a folder of plaintext files into Apple’s Notes application on El Capitan. Early days, but stuff like this is promising.

Works great!

Apple refunding all purchases of Peace – Marco.org

Marco Arment:

Today, Apple made the decision for me, in a way that I didn’t even think was possible, and I’m actually happy — or at least, as happy as someone can be who just made a lot of money on a roller coaster of surprise, guilt, and stress, then lost it all suddenly in a giant, unexpected reset that actually resolves things pretty well.
