Have you moved up to the wonderful world of wireless charging? The Mophie Wireless Charging Pad is a smart entry-point, especially since there are rumors Apple will release a wireless-only iPhone at some point. No charge ports no problem, because the Mophie model I tested works just as well as any charging cable, with way more convenience. That’s because the small pad, about as big as your palm, charges at 7.5 watts and does a lickety-split job without having to deal with cables. You set your iPhone down and it starts charging. Done and done. The pad also works fine for Android models that support Qi charging, and after testing a few had no problems. The Mophie pad is available in white or black, but I tested the white model just to go against the norm. I already own a few Mophie wireless pads, including a black dual-charging pad and a second single pad. At only $41, this single charge pad is a wise stocking stuffer, or you could buy a few extras for the bedroom, your … [Read more...] about I Charged My Apple iPhone Easier and Faster in Every Room of My House Using a Mophie Wireless Charging Pad

Is your phone listening in on you? (iStock) The scene plays out like a thriller: you pull out your phone, and you see an ad for AirPods. Wait a minute, you think. Didn’t I just have a conversation about AirPods with my friend? Like, a real conversation, spoken aloud? Is my phone… listening to me? Why, yes, it probably is. When you use your default settings, everything you say may be recorded through your device’s onboard microphone. Our phones routinely collect our voice data, store it in a distant server, and use it for marketing purposes. This fact was kept quiet for some time, but this kind of targeted ad is gradually becoming common knowledge.

An error at California’s Department of Motor Vehicles caused more than a thousand people, including some who were not U.S. citizens, to be incorrectly registered to vote, state officials said Monday. The DMV admitted that a “processing error” at agency field offices resulted in as many as 1,500 people being added to voter rolls between April 23 and Sept. 25.The widespread glitch was discovered after Randall Marquis, a Canadian citizen and legal U.S. resident living in California, notified the DMV he had received a piece of mail from the agency saying he was registered to vote. In response to Marquis’ alert, the agency ordered an internal audit and discovered hundreds of similar cases. “This error occurred when DMV technicians processed customer requests at field offices to change voter eligibility responses on driver license applications,” the DMV wrote in a letter to California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, according to the San Francisco … [Read more...] about California Admits DMV Error Added Non-Citizens To Voter Rolls
Donald Trump Jr. is calling on the conservative movement to take action by calling Democrats in Trump districts who are iffy on impeachment, urging conservatives to “tell them this will NOT STAND” and that “you’ll remember in Nov!”Trump Jr. made the call for action on Saturday, one day after the House Judiciary Committee voted to advance two articles of impeachment, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, against President Donald Trump with a party-line vote. The full House is expected to vote next week. Because Republicans have remained united in standing against their colleagues’ partisan impeachment effort, all eyes are on Democrats — specifically those who represent Trump-won districts. They have been feeling the heat, caught between the Democrat Party’s agenda and the political ramifications supporting impeachment could bring to their bids in 2020. While poll after poll has indicated that opposition to impeachment is outweighing … [Read more...] about Donald Trump Jr. Urges Conservatives to Hold Democrats in Trump Districts Accountable over Impeachment
In October of 2013, a skinny white kid named Kevin Pouya uploaded a video to YouTube called “How To Get Free Donuts.” The video opens on Pouya, looking like a preteen Travis Birkenstock, facing the camera. “Check it out, check it out,” he says, “This is how you get free donuts, from Dunkin’ Donuts. No. Money. Needed.” Over a piano soundtrack straight from The Sims, the camera follows Pouya and a friend as they order at a drive-thru window, grab a box of glazed, and speed off without paying, cackling out of the lot. Miami rapper Pouya’s early YouTube series, Nick and Pouya Show, produced with his best friend and longtime collaborator, Fat Nick, was filled with pranks like this one—silly, unscripted, low-budget, funny only to those involved. But nearly two years later, after Pouya scored thousands of streams on SoundCloud, slightly more body mass, and a coveted spot in South Florida’s rap scene, he still cited his YouTube show … [Read more...] about SoundCloud Rap Star Kevin Pouya Accused of Orchestrating Gang Rape of Fan
