Trollfail – Part Three

In Part Two, we mentioned the Arizona Coyotes decided on January 8 they had enough of the Twitter haranguing from @AZSportsHub. I assume there were meetings and phone conversations before the following Tweet was published. FYI #Coyotes fans: There is absolutely no truth to anything @SportsHubAZ reports. But we found his source... pic.twitter.com/MkypqkcH7p — Arizona Coyotes (@ArizonaCoyotes) January 8, 2015 The tweet is so clear that even Puck Daddy picked up on it (click here) with a "smackdown" post despite having also bitten on the Doaner trade story from @SportsHubAZ at least a little bit. You'd think that might be the end of this, certainly the end of @SportsHubAZ relying on the bogus Coyotes "source" outed by the Easter Bunny. Nope. Crossing Another Line There were tragic events in France recently - terrorist attacks responded to with some courage by the populace. Europeans are my inspiration right now. They won't be intimidated and neither … [Read More...]

Second Anti-Casino PAC Likely To Be Fined $65k

One of the political action committees (PACs) opposing the Tohono O'dham casino in Glendale is likely to follow the tracks of their "sister" PAC and be fined by Glendale, according to a letter from the Glendale City Clerk. Reasonable Cause A campaign finance reporting complaint was lodged by this author on October 6 against "No More Bad Deals for Glendale" (NMBD), a PAC registered in Glendale. Among the other errors, the most egregious omission was not filing any reports of receiving or disbursing $10,000.00. Any PAC that receives or spends $10k or more must notify the governing body, in this case Glendale, of their activity. A.R.S. § 16-914.01(B) refers to the requirements for … [Read More...]

Nice Work, Gagnon

In the midst of whining about being the victim of "cyberbullying", Casey Gagnon in his guise as "Twitter journalist" @SportsHubAZ, tweets the following response: @jmrus2014 You of all people Jarrod should know what it's like to get bullied and picked on since you're so obese. Shame on you. #pathetic — Arizona Sports Hub (@SportsHubAZ) January 11, 2015 Somehow the tweet is no longer visible, perhaps Casey deleted it because even through the haze of his fevered need for ANY attention he realized it was detrimental to his narrative of being picked on? UPDATE: Whoops, the tweet IS still there, somehow we missed it. Nothing ever really is deleted from the Internet, though, is … [Read More...]

Secret Android Speedup WORKS

I'll admit I have yet to perform any scientific calculations on the effectiveness of the following change, I'd have to test it and then revert to the prior setup on my devices to do it correctly. Seat of the pants? This is a great change. You'll need to have Android KitKat 4.4.2 on your device for this to work. I believe right now that means having a Nexus 5 phone or a Nexus 7 tablet. Oracle, Schmoracle Oracle sued Google in 2012 claiming that the basis for the Android operating system running Java, the Dalvik virtual machine, infringed on patents oracle had acquired with it's purchase of Sun Microsystems. Oracle lost their case, but Google learned a lesson and started building … [Read More...]

Trollfail – Part Two

In Part One, we offered some background social media history of somebody that initially had good intentions of providing Coyotes information going off the rails. It escalated to the point where … [Read More...]
