iPad Security Flaw; Rush Limbaugh on Matthew Shepard

iPad Security Flaw

I titled this post with iPad because I know so many read this blog on an iPad, but it's a security flaw that's with other Apple devices, too. If you haven't been reading or listening to the news to learn about an update that hopefully fixes it you might have to deal with what's called a cyber "man in the middle attack." I updated immediately. It's a really a quick fix that doesn't take long. And from what I've read it's mostly for people who use unsecured Wi-Fi connections.

Some people have issues with the update. I didn't have a problem. I highly suggest reading this article below for more information.

The iPad upgrade, though, was something of a disaster. The device disconnected itself in the middle of the upgrade for some reason (I really don’t know why; I had it sitting off by itself on the corner of my desk; all I can think of is the cable got bumped). Interrupting the process is never good, and in this case it totally freaked out my iPad. I lost everything on it and it wouldn’t even show me my home screen!

I didn't have any issues when I upgraded, knock wood. But evidently that's not the case with everyone. If you are tech challenged you might want to check it out with an Apple rep.

Rush Limbaugh on Matthew Shepard

Faker and multi-millionaire pundit who will do anything for a buck or to get attention, Rush Limbaugh, recently commented that the death of Matthew Shepard was not a gay hate crime. His highly disorganized sentence doesn't even make sense.

'Jason Coll(ins) - who by the way took number 98 in solidarity with Matthew Shepard, who was, it's now been proven didn't happen, but reputed to have beaten up by a bunch of anti-gay bigots.'

You can read more here about the Matthew Shepard hate crime, where there are several details about what transpired.

In 2009, President Barack Obama signed into law the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act  which allows for added charges and harsher jail sentences for those convicted of what is deemed to be a hate crime, a crime against somebody’s race, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity.

The article gives an assumption about why Limbaugh doesn't think Shepard's case was a hate crime. But I'm not weighing on that. My point with this entire part of the post is to inform people that Rush Limbaugh is a pundit, a radio personality, an actor, and a personality who will do anything to get attention. In a way, he's an exaggerated clown given far too much credibility than he deserves.  He's laughing all the way to the proverbial bank. And he's not the only one. He's just like the rest of them, even his biggest competition on the liberal end. Don't pay attention to anything these pundit people say. They are getting paid millions of dollars to sensationalize and spin truth and most people don't realize this.
