Trevor Noah isn’t happy about the change to Twitter

The Daily Show’s host Trevor Noah was not happy with the idea that Twitter changed it’s you-have-no-picture-so-we-have-this thingggy. Honestly, I don’t know what the hell to call it. So, we’re sticking with you-have-no-picture-so-we-have-this thingggy. It fits all the necessary wordage. Everyone cool? Good. So, Trevor isn’t happy with you-have-no-picture-so-we-have-this thingggy. This is what he said on Monday per the New York Times:
“If they want to discourage anonymity, that’s cool. But then what they need to do is make the default avatar somebody nobody wants like a picture of Ted Cruz. If that was everyone’s picture, you’d be like, ‘No, no, no! I’ll upload a picture! Even Ted Cruz doesn’t want to be Ted Cruz. He probably would see that and be like, ‘I want to change back to the egg, back when I was beautiful6’ TREVOR NOAH Besides, he said, it’s nicer to be harassed by an egg than a shadow.
“As someone who gets a lot of Twitter hate, I’d prefer it to come from a cute little egg. Because I mean the words are going to be the same but when an egg tweets me it’s like [cute, high voice], ‘Go back to Africa, Trevor! But a silhouette is like [deep, haunting voice], ‘Go back to Africa, Trevor! Like, an egg follows you. A silhouette follows you, and then stabs you in the shower. TREVOR NOAH. What do you think?

(tweet) – Can YOU spot the panda among the Tic Tacs? ? – February 16, 2017

I have a simple question for you.
Can you find the panda among the tick tacks?
Many people on the internet cannot. The reason?
The white sweets, set against a black background, have faces drawn on and are barely distinguishable from the adorable creature, making it fiendishly difficult to spot. So can you see it?
For my blind readers who are questioning what does the picture look like: “The black and white bear’s face is cleverly concealed among more than 300 tiny mints leaving even the most observant viewers scratching their heads” (daily mail, 2017.) Can you spot it? (the pic is below)

Drama doesn’t just happen on Facebook, it can happen on @burgerking’s Instagram

Normally you would find this kind of Drama on Facebook but the United Press International has an epic story of a dude, Burger King’s Instagram page, a woman and the other woman. Yes this can’t end well.
So, let the fun begin!!!!
We don’t know what Burger King wrote on their Instagram account to receive this comment from jordanvonsmith86, My girl legit took 20 minutes ordering in the drive thru last night, those whoppers were worth it tho lol. But we do know the response.
His girlfriend apparently saw the comment and had to reply: her name is shanlee_rose. Umm excuse me @jordan_vonsmith86??? I don’t recall going last night or ever liking Burger King who are you talking about? Oops!
Per Reuters: “A follow-up comment implored the man to answer your [expletive] phone. Shanlee_rose tagged some friends in the comments, and they responded by saying they were not surprised to learn the man was cheating and he had been seen with another girl at a showing of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Oh she is just seething now! Stop while you are behind sur. But, the boyfriend was not done.
@shanlee_rose you need to chill out, I was with @kitcass01 and we were just catching up. Kitcass01 replied to the thread, saying please don’t bring me into this, but shanlee_rose was having none of it. @kitcass01 [expletive] you, you brought yourself into this you fat [expletive], shanlee_rose wrote. The exchange ended with a parting shot from the man’s now-ex-girlfriend: Hope the whopper jr’s were worth it. Your shit’s outside. I am in shock and so apparently are others.
Did I seriously just witness a breakup on BK’s instagram? one user asked. Well, apparently you did.
No one is asking this question so I will: you get a whopper jr? really?

Verizon brings unlimited data back

Verizon is attempting to compete with sprint and the other data cariers.
Per Reuters: “The introductory plan, announced on Sunday, will give unlimited data to customers on smartphones and tablets on its 4G LTE network. It comes days after competitor Sprint Corp introduced a new unlimited data plan of its own” (2017.)
This was a quick turnaround from what one of the companies top leaders said.”We constantly look at… what’s out there. Unlimited is one of the things that some of our competition has at this point in time. That’s not something we feel the need to do,” Matthew Ellis, Verizon’s chief financial officer, told analysts during an earnings call on Jan. 24.

“But as I say, we continually monitor the market and we will see where we head in the future,” he added.

Verizon’s unlimited plan is $80 per month for unlimited data, talk and text for the first line and an additional $45 per line up to four lines. Apparently they saw a need.
If you have two lines you’ll pay $125 per month which will yield you a total of $1500 a year.
If you have 4 lines you will pay $215 per month which will give you a total of $2580. Note: none of this is with tax.

comments wanted, friend having issues with a #usb mouse and keyboard – can you help?

I am not an expert when it comes to tech and usb mice and keyboards. A friend of mine wrote to me on facebook and asked this question.
“I took my computer into Navos yesterday, as my USB wired mouse was not working correctly. Sherry Harrison, my peer, determined it was the settings in the computer. She also enable the setting which allows the touchpad, to be disabled women external USB pointing device is activated.
So I got the computer home yesterday evening and set it up today right? Then I fired it up. My USB mouse is working totally fine. My USB keyboard was also working completely fine. However, when I plugged them in at the same time, the keyboard went completely dead. Do you know what could be causing this? I am quite frustrated.
Note: I had both of the settings configured at one time without any problem on this particular machine. I do not know what could be causing this, do you think it could be the new update? I hadn’t updated for a while so updated the other day. Took it about six hours. Oh joy.” Can anyone help her?

@ibm once sold a computer that was 50 lb

Good lord! This video shows how much computers have shrunk in 39 years. Today we have computers that are small enough to fit in our pockets.
But the IBM Model 5100, released in 1977, was marketed as one of the world’s first ‘portable’ computers. It is the size of a type writer and is 50 pounds.
The Model 5100 was IBM’s first minicomputer, which was also considered one of the world’s first portable computers.
It had a fairly complete system, complete with a keyboard, built-in data storage and full-screen display. The IBM 5100 was based on a 16 bit processor module called PALM.
Available in 12 models providing 16K, 32K, 48K or 64K positions of main storage, the 5100 was not cheap, and sold for between £7,217 ($8,975) and £16,000 ($19,975). Dang!

You scan a special Snapcode from the Spectacles website with your camera while you are in Snapchat.
