An Essential Screw Up

It’s a huge screw up from a company that likes to characterize itself as scrappy and small. But scrappy is one thing, being sloppy with customers’ personal information is another thing entirely.

I don’t think I would ever reply to an email requesting my driver’s license, date of birth, or any other sensitive information just for a phone.

 

 

Disagreeing with Facts

“I think one of the reasons that that example comes to mind is because this is a report of facts and research,” she said. “This is a summary of really important and, in some cases, government-funded work that was done to understand the causes and effects of sexual and gender violence. What does it mean that the Trump administration doesn’t want the public to have that information?”

Sadly, I think this is a case of it’s not a problem if we don’t acknowledge it.

Help Me Help You

“I used to cycle through disbelief, shame, anger. Now I just show compassion and move on,” she added.

I’ve heard this happening myself while in the waiting room for my doctor. The person first didn’t want a nurse practitioner, but a doctor. She was presented with options. Then she wanted a doctor that went through a medical school in the US. More options were given. Then she wanted a doctor that wasn’t a woman. Finally she wanted a doctor that was white.

ApplePay Broken?

The crooks have not broken the secure encryption around Apple Pay’s fingerprint-activated wireless payment mechanism. Instead, they are setting up new iPhones with stolen personal information and then calling banks to “provision” the victim’s card on the phone to use it to buy goods.

At first, the article makes it seem like ApplePay on the device is broken. But it seems the human element involving the credit card companies is the problem here.

You’re Doing it Wrong – Scrambled Eggs

One common mistake people make when cooking scrambled eggs is adding milk or cream. You may have been whisking your eggs with milk since you were a little kid, but we’re telling you now: It’s time to stop.

It may seem counterintuitive, but the addition of milk, cream or any other liquid for that matter, will actually make it more likely that your eggs will turn out dry. By thinning out the eggs, it’s easier to overcook them. Most importantly, the milk dilutes the taste of the eggs. It also screws with the texture, leaving the eggs slightly rubbery — and no one wants rubbery eggs. If you’re using good, farm fresh eggs, you don’t need anything except maybe a little salt and pepper to make them taste delicious. A little butter never hurt anyone, either.

I’m never sure how to take articles that tell you that you’ve been doing it wrong. You know the ones, like you’re eating this food wrong or using this tool wrong.

We have been making more and more scrambled eggs since the kids enjoy it this way. Me? I prefer a good over easy egg.
