And that's why Sanders matters. Not because he actually might win the race - not going to happen in this country - but because he'll force Hillary's hand on at least some issues.

Yes, I would like a more progressive president as well. But realistically, Hillary it is when it comes to the democratic candidate.

Remember when buying at the Apple Store was a great experience?

Yeah, not so much any more. It's a fucking pain in the ass. Everybody has slightly different info, waits are endless, crowds are insane.

And to top it off, when I need to lug in my computer, I get to lug it for 15 minutes, since supposedly there's not even a loading dock. (I suppose shipments just iManifest)

Yes, I'm grumpy. Very.

Oh, look. You can care about your looks and technology. 

She built an awesome pen-testing kit, which I'd immediately replicate if I ever wore platforms.

Also, let me repost here Edit at the bottom of her post:

Normally I have to sort though about 50% identical replies to my posts on Reddit. For those flexing their fingers and getting ready to give me a hard time:
Yes, they are fake.
Yes, I feature them prominently and deliberately in everything I do.
No, most of my projects do not have all that much technical merit- they are 90% silicone and 10% silicon ;-)
No, if you point out the absolutely obvious no one will think you are insightful, edgy or cool. They will think you are 12.

Please do me a favor and behave yourself. I hate banning people.

Woman builds secret compartments in her shoes to hide hacking tools.

Inspired by the TV show, "Mr. Robot," an engineer in China who calls herself the SexyCyborg (and also a "natural honeypot") created custom, 3D-printed shoes that hold hacking tools. Best of all, they're accessed via drawers that come out without needing to remove the shoes. 

She's wearing a slinky dress that leads one to believe she couldn't possibly be hiding anything. But inside her shoes are: a pen testing drop box, an OpenWRT router that works as a wi-fi sniffer which can operated inside the shoe,  a keylogger with built-in memory, a retractable cable for the OpenWRT router, a shim (to open padlocks), and a lock pick set.

The chromium team has added experimental support for spellchecking in multiple languages at the same time in Chrome Canary 🐥.

By simply enabling the experimental flag named Multilingual Spellchecker at chrome://flags/#enable-multilingual-spellchecker, you can now go to Chrome Settings languages at chrome://settings/languages and check "Use this language for spell checking" for every language of your choice.

It took me a while to realize what really bugs me about most of the reporting around Ashley Maddison, and +John Gruber's final sentence in his post final brought it into focus for me:

This feels like the plot from a movie — it’s hard to imagine a large scale hack that would create more schadenfreude than this.

And that's the problem - Schadenfreude. Not a lick of empathy, but gloating that people have fallen victim to a crime. Yes, many A.M. users probably use it to cheat, but guess what - that's none of your business

And that doesn't even account for the fact that A.M also caters to an audience that consensually has more than one partner. Which society at large still deems unacceptable, but which all involved in are OK with. And which also falls under none of your business.

That'd be the amazing work of one of my team mates here in LAX.

As expected, the Chrome Downloads page is also getting a Material Design look as we speak in Chrome Canary.

By simply toggling the experimental flag named "Material Design downloads" at chrome://flags/#enable-md-downloads, we can now follow the work in progress of the Material Design downloads page at chrome://downloads.

And if you have not notice yet, components are all powered by the Polymer¹ library under the hood so that Chrome has a consistent Material Design look and feel. Go check out https://www.polymer-project.org to learn more about it and browse the Polymer Elements catalog at https://elements.polymer-project.org

The always awesome +A.V. Flox​ wrote this article on the sex workers rights. Which is an important issue that is, at its core, about human rights.

And so of course, the discussion on it went straight to bickering, blame assignment, and derailment.

Let's not do that. Let's ask a simple question instead:

What have you done to actually advance sex workers rights?

In case you don't know how, here are a few ideas:

* Support Amnesty International
* Support the ACLU
* Find a local organization to support - see http://www.bayswan.org/orgs.html
* Contact your representatives
* Talk to a sex worker
* Write your own article on the topic, or reshare this one with an introduction in your own words.

Amber Batts didn't think there was anything wrong with pimps in theory -- it was useful to have someone arranging your dates and looking out for you. What chaffed was the cut they tended to take -- and how often they didn't really seem to have the workers' interests at heart. The service she eventually launched, Sensual Alaska, was more than a booking agency -- it provided screening for potential clients as well. Sex workers made themselves available to be booked or took themselves off the roster as they desired. No one was ever forced to go on any dates. In addition, Batts had rented an apartment to be used for in-calls so that sex workers could meet clients on their turf -- without needing to take on the extra cost or share their home spaces with them. 

For this, the state of Alaska has charged Amber Batts with sex trafficking and sentenced her to five and half years. This article, by Tara Burns, tells the strange tale of how a woman who worked to make it safer for Alaska's sex workers ended up in the state's crosshairs.

Tara Burns, a former sex worker who researches the impact of legislation and policy on sex work and sex trafficking, was at her sentencing today. For those of you interested in seeing a blow-by-blow of how easily the state conflates sex work and human trafficking, I strongly recommend you take a look at the collection of tweets I gathered chronicling her sentencing, along with other useful resources: https://storify.com/avflox/the-sentencing-of-amber-batts

After her sentencing, when asked what she would tell other sex workers, Amber Batts responded: "To not give up. Not give up our rights for safety." 

We won't, Amber. ___The always awesome +A.V. Flox​ wrote this article on the sex workers rights. Which is an important issue that is, at its core, about human rights.

Two of the officers involved have been fired for use of excessive force not related to this incident.

Which more or less means beating up an innocent black guy isn't reason enough to get fired, you'll need to do a bit more than that.

Can we please finally admit there's a horrible problem with our police force?

A really fascinating article looking at how our life shapes our narrative, and our narrative shapes our life. One rewrites the other.

I wonder how the Internet changed that. While the article concludes that "the past is always up for grabs", that's not quite true any more.

We've got immutable records of the past, and they're searchable and readily retrievable. And so readjusting it to fit the narrative is a hard thing to do...

It's one of those topics that make me wish salons were still a thing.

I'm glad we've got brilliant thinkers like her working as school officials. They will definitely ensure our children is are learning.

Because naming streets after a civil rights leader is just exactly the same as flying a flag that glorifies a war fought to perpetuate slavery. Can't see any difference there.

She said she is a “woman Indian minority” and [the local NAACP chapter president's] job technically is to support her, and she would not be honoring his request to meet with her.

Pretty much. Next time you want to advise women on how to just sound more acceptable to you, bear in mind I'm following especially tip #11.

In general, communicate only by tearing off the arms of those with whom you are displeased. Wave these arms like flags, in a kind of gruff semaphore. To express feelings, roll rocks downhill with rude emoji carved on them.

(Yes, I said "just" in that first paragraph. You pointing that out would displease me, so just do the math)

* Claiming "citation needed" if there's one three comments above yours.
* Mumbling about "free speech" when a company restricts forms of expressions. (Hint: It's about the government infringing on your speech.)
* Thinking you're entitled to say whatever you want in comments on my post. (Hint: You're not. I'm not the government. Free speech does not apply. My house, my rules)
* Posting a $#(&#$ video without a transcript. And then making claims in your introductory message that aren't really what the video says.
* Not posting enough cat images.

There are probably more, but let me remedy the last one. I picked one that goes with my mood.

God is watching you. Or possibly G-d.

I have it on solid authority that Odin does not condone this kind of thing, though. So you could always go Norse.

Churches are using facial recognition to track members, this startup says. "Moshe Greenshpan is the founder and CEO of Skakash, an Israeli company that aims to provide churches with a program called Churchix to scan everyone who walks through their holy halls." "I can tell you in general that churches also don't like to be described as privacy invaders. Most of them would like to keep this confidential. We try to encourage churches to make Churchix more visible, so it will become like a checkpoint for registration. Of course, so far we haven't had great success in doing that."___God is watching you.

For context, this is a college textbook on dancing.

So, let's check the chapter on injuries, specifically on "Alternatives to drug therapy" (p252, final paragraph "

On bad nights, a stiff drink will quiet the pain and help you fall asleep.

And that's why Sanders matters. Not because he actually might win the race - not going to happen in this country - but because he'll force Hillary's hand on at least some issues.

Yes, I would like a more progressive president as well. But realistically, Hillary it is when it comes to the democratic candidate.
