Tracking US drone strikes? Now there’s an app for that

Last week, New York-based web developer Josh Begley answered that question with the launch of “MetaData+,” an iPhone app that sends an alert to your phone every time the United States conducts a drone strike.

He created the app in 2012 under the original name Drones+, but Apple rejected the app five times, taking nearly two years for the app to be available to the public.

The App Review Board claimed that Begley’s app was “not useful or entertaining enough” and something that “many audiences would find objectionable.”

Begley even spoke with a representative from Apple on the phone, who said that if the app was about drones, it just wasn’t going to be approved. Finally, after he removed the word “drone” from both the name and the description, the app was accepted.

To the Dark Lord,

I know I will be dead long before you read this but I want you to know that it was I who discovered your secret. I have stolen the real horcrux and intend to destroy it as soon as I can. I face death in the hope that when you meet your match you will be mortal once more.

El Sinsajo está vivo

Después de una agonía casi extrema, ya tenemos con nosotros el avance de lo que podremos ver el 21 de Noviembre en todos los cines (sí, sí, en todos). He aquí lo nuevo de la tercera parte de Los Juegos del Hambre, Sinsajo.


Lo que parecen ser unos trailers, se nos presentan como unos propos del Presidente Snow. En el primero encontramos a Snow vestido completamente de blanco, con un fondo blanco…

Friendly reminder that this creepy moment existed. 


#these two women right here #let me tell you about these two #they both believed with all their hearts that knights were chivalrous #that there really was such a thing as honour #that the villains were clearly the villains #and right from wrong was always black and white #but then real life happened #and even though they were disillusioned #and they found out life was nothing like the songs #they didn’t give up and they didn’t give in #they did not become completely demoralized or malevolent #like so many others who are subjected to the game of thrones do #bc the thing is #sansa is still gentle and kind #just now she wears her courtesy as her coat of mail and never reveals her true feelings #bc she learned what happens when you trust and believe #and brienne is still trying to be the honourable knight #but realizes she’s one of the few honest and loyal oath keepers left #and she has seen the horrific deeds other “knights” have done #but now they are no longer the naive girls they once were #and they realize there is no black and white #there is only grey #but they choose to be the good in this corrupt world
