Google Chrome Just Got Better

Google Chrome Just Got Better

Pop Up Videos, Silenced 

Is there anything more annoying than a loud ad you can’t find to silence with multiple tabs open? No.

We’ve all had it happen, whether it’s a cleaning product ad that is so hidden it takes you the entire commercial to find the window, or an autoplay news that starts when you’re still finishing up that last email. It’s annoying as hell, and it’s driven us all crazy.

Luckily, the good people of Google are also sick of this atrocity that has caused so many to scramble for the mute button.

Starting this fall (likely October to mid-November) autoplay on background tabs will be disabled while using Google Chrome.

Why Does This Matter?

This is one of the most annoying things on the web, and for some reason it has taken the same people who can create a self-driving car until now to realize it.

Of course this is more than just stopping annoying commercials, this can potentially help slower computers have a little extra gas in them, allowing the videos to fully load and be ready when you are. Also, for those who have slow bandwidth, or are paying for their internet depending on data used, this allows them to not have to worry about the amount of energy being expelled by the annoying ads in the first place.

End result is basically that Google just keeps knocking out more awesome shit, and we’re very thankful for that.

Miley Frees The Nipple

The VMA’s Gets a Little Wild

We didn’t want to talk about it, we wanted to stay clear of the Miley conversation, but it’s unavoidable, so here we are.

Miley Cyrus clearly has no problem with nudity, as she proved to the world in her Paper Magazine photoshoot, and the VMA’s are no stranger to some wildly revealing outfits, and this year the two came together to bare it all for the camera.

Of course, with nudity and progression comes parents up in arms and people screaming for more censorship in America, as if we don’t have enough.

The angered folks of the Parents Television Council, a rather prude crew if ya ask us, were obviously upset. Sending this statement to Fox:

“MTV had an opportunity to use its powerful VMA platform to stir a young audience to aspire to something positive and up-lifting. Instead they chose to perpetuate blatant sexualization – much of it self-inflicted by the artists – and to celebrate the use of illegal drugs.”

Why Is America so Worried About Nudity?

Is it really that big of a deal? Are we really this terrified of sex and drugs that we have to make our children believe they don’t exist? Do you really think your child doesn’t know how to look up naughty images on the internet?

Europe has long been the more lax cousin of ours, not really caring who sees naked bodies on television and in advertising, and they seem to be doing just fine. Still, we have mothers and fathers across the country ranting and raving about how we’re ruining children and the world by mentioning the word “marijuana,” or letting a nipple slip on camera.

With the #FreeTheNipple movement gaining popularity every day, is it possible that the rights to bare all will soon move from taboo to equal? Who knows. But we’re pretty damn sure Miley Cyrus will be a big reason the campaign continues to reach more and more people across the world.

If you want to actually listen to some of Miley’s music, according to the ticket site Rukkus.com, she is streaming it for free on Soundcloud.

Bigoted Kentucky Clerk Is Told What's Up By Supreme Court

Bigoted Kentucky Clerk is Told What's Up by Supreme Court

Only in Kentucky…

Kim Davis, an angry woman who apparently doesn’t understand her job, has officially exhausted her court appeals for refusing to give our marriage licenses to same sex couples.

Davis, who has been married four times, has been refusing to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples after the June 26th SCOTUS decision to uphold constitutional rights for marriage equality. Then, in a child-like fit, also decided she will refuse to issue licenses to anyone wanting to marry in her county, which landed her on the defendant side of a lawsuit.

Davis has fought for her opinion, cloaking herself in claims of religious freedom since the ordeal as started, and took her complaints and inability to do her job all the way to the Supreme Court, who issued her a one sentence response, with no explanation (essentially because they just ruled on it) telling her to issue the certificates.

This was then upheld by the Governor of Kentucky, who directed all county clerks to listen to the ruling and play nice with others.

Good luck on your next career, Kim, we can only assume you’re going to be fired from your current one in due time.
