    Helicopters, I am surrounded by helicopters...

    No, it has nothing to do with our generation teaching kids that a crazy person could come into their schools at any time with high powered firearms and kills dozens of them in under a minute. Or that adults' reactions would to tut-tut, wring our hands, then go back on like nothing had...

    Freedom Phone

    Dude. No. Stop. This. Is. A. Scam. This is a re-branded Umidigi A9 pro, which you can buy online for $119. The operating system is a big question mark, no actual details have been released, but it seems to be just open source Lineage OS, a variant of Android. With "no tracking", you won't get...

    FedEx is destroying its own brand and maybe more

    OK, as someone who's "in the business", here's my take. First off, these are multi-billion dollar global corporations. Y'all thinking you're smarter than them is, at best, pretty funny, at worst, just plain obnoxious. They're juggling thousands of conflicting priorities every hour, you only...
