Adblock Plus now sells ads?

Tuesday, September 13th, 2016

This used to be an add blocker but they have been positioning themselves as an advertiser preaching the nonsense of acceptable ads. It’s an old approach.  Present a new “service” and then start doing what was done before but you have people paying for it.  When cable TV first appeared, the big selling point was “ad free.” Once the base was established; it changed we are going to introduce ads so we don’t have to charge more. Now we pay for the privileged of getting ads.

Adblock at the moment doesn’t charge but in time there will be paid levels to “reduce” ads or better control them.

I am dumping them.

Look into uBlock origin. They have a link for an iOS 9 product and I know they have addons for Chrome and Firefox.




Can’t restore backup to iPhone 6s

Thursday, November 5th, 2015

It was time for a new company phone. I ran a backup like a good person. Traded in my phone and received the new iPhone.

I went to restore the backup and kept getting password invalid messages.  I was entering the correct password for the iTunes account so what was wrong?

It turns out that iTunes has it’s own password. Luckily, I remembered the old password and was able to run the restore.

While playing around with CloudCred; I had a need to install an app and take a screen shot as proof it was installed.

Problem was “How to do it?”

It turns out all you need to do it press both the power/sleep button and the home button at the same time.  The screen flashed (I had it on vibrate) and a screen shot was loaded to the camera roll.

I imported contents and had my upload.
