Slow Walking iPhone

iPhone

Apple is sorry it slowed your old iPhone 6. But the company wasn’t trying to force you to buy a new one. Just saving the batteries of the old ones.

Meanwhile, Apple compensated C.E.O. Tim Cook $89 million in stock options, along with another $12 million cash.

Airplane Mode

He won’t be using airplane mode on his iPhone either. Apple wants him to fly strictly private.

Political Bias Investigation

bias

Most everybody is either a Democrat or Republican. So it’s hard to find politically pure investigators.

Bias

Nine of the fifteen lawyers Robert Mueller hired to investigate Donald Trump made political contributions. A total of $62,043 of those contributions went to Democrats and $2,750 to Republicans according to Politifact.

Crack FBI agent Peter Strzok also referred to Trump as an “idiot” and a “douche.” And he went on to text that a Trump win was highly unlikely. Even so, he claimed an insurance policy was needed in the event of a Trump victory.

Trump won. And Mueller kicked Strock off the investigation.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein defended the Mueller special investigation against bias charges.

Vanity Fair Hillary Shots

Hillary Shots

The mag produce this video for its on-line site The Hive. The sketch featured staffers proposing toasts to Hillary. And each toast offered a New Year’s resolution urging her to abstain from running for office again.

One recommended she teach Yoga, another counseled alternate nostril breathing and another advised her to take up knitting.

Naturally the Hillary Faithful charged sexism. So Vanity Fair apologized and pulled the video.
