Oh and last post about phones. :offtopic:
Samsung Switch App is AWESOME!!! I used it 4 years ago and it transferred basics like contact, messages...But the new version transferred EVERYTHING, Apps, Settings, I mean Everything. It was like imaging a Hard Drive, almost. Only had to relogin to a few Apps, that's it. It even transferred our Home Screens, our phones look just like our old phones, crazy kewl. Also noticed a lot less bloatware on these phones. No Sprint Apps, even though it came with a Sprint SIM card. Once connected to Sprint, we did get some App suggestions, a least you can choose now...So far Very Pleased...Wife is also Happy, which believe me, says ALOT :) She is the strongest Smart Phone Critic I know LOL

What pisses me about phones is the bloatware they insist on installing that can't be removed. The newer ones, from the S7 era and up can't be rooted, safely, either to get rid of that crap. Bixby is a total waste of storage and memory.

Nah,that was a reference to a "Honey Mooners" episode where Ralph went on late night TV hawking a kitchen gadget. Gleason took a fall, accidental, during that scene and actually broke an ankle. The key line was actually Kramden's "But will it core a apple?".
I remember that, hahaha. I guess I am always on the defense with our Android phones since our daughters and most of our family have Apples, hahaha, sorry. I like Apple phones/products but just don't like their proprietariness, haha wrong word to use even though it sounded right to me, haha, just looked up it's meaning (possessiveness or jealousy; a view of another person as property) Anyway, I have seen lately Apple is changing their restrictiveness on independent developers, maybe this will open up more doors for more 3rd party Products/Apps. Android is crazy flooded...

Bixby is supposed to be an Alexa or Siri equivalent. I have no use for any of that crap along with the menu that comes from the right side. More junk that gets in the way of my big fingers. I know I'm a dinosaur, but a smart phone is just a phone with some computer features to me and I sure don't talk to my desktop or laptop. In the end, I see it as another way to dehumanize users so they can avoid direct interaction with people.

In all my years watching politics I can truly say I’ve never seen so many people fall for so many lies. And such obvious ones so easily debunked.

Sad that millions of Americans are now perfectly content to elevate baseless hearsay, which continues to be summarily shut down by courts, as fact.

Did they ever possess the ability to question what they were told? I think so, but those days are gone. Many are now under a spell. It is just very strange. I imagine in their professional careers they are critical, objective thinkers, but in the past two weeks have abandoned it.
You are a riot coming from someone who fell for the Trump/Russia collusion story hook line and sinker.

Really? There are supposed to be 6 commissioners on the FEC. Your boy Trump has refused to fill the 3 vacant seats. The three existing commissioners are:

Lol. You obviously were in a coma for the Russia investigations, Ukraine investigations, Kavanaugh hearings, etc.

Heresay, you say? The last 4 years were filled with damn heresay.

So, lets cancel all student debt, all rent, all mortgages now! That's fantastic! And lets see how quickly the markets re-act, I mean CRASH....you socialist/commie stupid twat! SHE IS the enemy of the state!

I am not heartless, I understand American's are suffering...but you do THIS and our Economy will cease to exist. Why is she still a representative? What in the hell is wrong with the people that voted her in?

Ilhan Omar: 'Cancel rent and mortgage payments now'
"Evicting millions of people during a pandemic would be a moral outrage," she said.

Sure, corporations will happily pass all those costs along in their pricing for goods and services, assuming they can manage to stay in business to do more business. If they go belly up, the employees won't have to pay for anything other than food, power, fuel and so on with no incomes. Great solution from a "stellar" logic.

maybe take a step back, tighten your belt, relieve yourselves from the gloat, greed, and dependencies that were inbread into our modern culture. Save up for what you need, take care of what you have, buy dependable products that will last. - we can do without global corporations, we surely did before - what else ? - :idk: - just a out of nowhere rant - :thumb:

I guess this judge is a 'liberal dupe'. Image, he needed to see evidence???

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A federal judge issued a scathing order Saturday dismissing the Trump campaign’s futile effort to block the certification of votes in Pennsylvania, shooting down claims of widespread irregularities with mail-in ballots.

The case was always a long shot to stop President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, but it was President Donald Trump’s best hope to affect the election results through the courts, mostly because of the number of electoral votes, 20, at stake in Pennsylvania. His personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, stepped into a courtroom for the first time in decades to argue the case this past week.

U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Brann wrote in his order that Trump had asked the court to disenfranchise almost 7 million voters.

“One might expect that when seeking such a startling outcome, a plaintiff would come formidably armed with compelling legal arguments and factual proof of rampant corruption,” Brann wrote, so much that the court would have no option but to stop the certification even though it would impact so many people. “That has not happened.”

What is sad is most people don't even know they are modern slaves to these corporations. I am amazed how many people are available 24/7 for work via these Smart Phones. There was a day you clocked out and left work at work, now they have entered our homes. Funny, but what also is sad is most people are making Much less than they think they are, they are looking at the false numbers of their paycheck, kinda like looking at the false numbers of Covid Deaths. If you add up your true 24/7 work hours most will find they are making half of what they think they are making/working. I remember a company I worked for would pay us, I think it was $40, to be available 24/7 on the weekends, you had to keep a pager with you in case of an outage, you were paid a minimum of 4 hours hourly if you had to go fix the outage. Those days seem to be over...
