Hilarious! The "infotainment" center on the car crashed, and stopping & turning the car off doesn't seem to reboot it.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - There is a special place in hell for whoever thought touchscreens in cars was a good idea. :AngeryCat:

covid adj., education 

FCC should hijack the airwaves and broadcast K-12 classes during school hours. I'm sure PBS and teachers forced to choose between their jobs and their health would be happy to help.

Not everyone has TV or good signal, but I'll bet more people who dont have connectivity/devices have TVs. Use existing infrastructure to at least broaden access, even if it isn't perfect.

Fuck daytime TV. Do what needs to be done.

uspol, payroll tax, important but also negative 

The president just signed an executive order deferring payroll tax collection. He’s trying to sell it as a cut. It’s not a cut. It’s just not withheld from your check now. YOU WILL STILL OWE THIS MONEY NEXT YEAR ON TAX DAY. If you spend this extra money now YOU WILL HAVE TO COME UP WITH HUNDREDS OF EXTRA DOLLARS ON TAX DAY NEXT YEAR TO PAY THE GOVERNMENT WHAT IT DEFERRED. This is a trap, please do not consider this extra money spendable. You’re going to have to figure out what you’d normally pay in payroll tax and put it somewhere you’re not going to spend it so you have it on tax day next year or you will be hurt by this trap.

McClatchy Newspapers, the second-biggest chain in the US, has filed bankruptcy and is proposing selling itself to a hedge fund. Both major dailies in my area are McClatchy.

Getting bought by a hedge fund is usually . . . not good for papers.

Why does the K Bank Android app send tracking data to Facebook and Google?

Why is live chat via Facebook when we all know Facebook is morally-bankrupt and also terrible about privacy? This is a bank so the information needs to stay private

@float13 We are mid migration.... it's probably going to be a little... funky for a few more hours.

@thegibson

Ah gotcha. So probably a little bit of both :)

Did H.Town go down momentarily?

Or did messing with my FIrefox privacy settings screw me up?
