Last month, we told you about a controversial new feature that came as a part of Apple’s iOS 9 update. The add-on is called “Wi-Fi Assist” and is programmed to switch from Wi-Fi to 4G whenever the phone’s software determines that your Wi-Fi connection is weak. While it seems that the tech company was looking to be helpful with the feature, many were outraged because it essentially has the potential to raise your cell phone bill. And for this reason, they’re being sued. According to Good Housekeeping, a couple of Apple customers have filed a $5 million lawsuit claiming that the company failed to properly warn consumers about the new feature, which automatically switches on when you download the iOS 9 update.
“It’s A Difference” Loni Love Tells Rachel Dolezal About Herself… And We’re Here For It”
Loni Love is a comedienne… But when a pregnant Rachel Dolezal visited Loni and the women of “The Real,” she was very serious. Dolezal is still out here telling the same story she was telling last year. Sitting on the couch, she told Loni, “White isn’t a race, it’s a state of mind and nothing about whiteness describes me.” Loni wasn’t having it. “Let me tell you something. I’m Black. I can’t be you. I can’t reverse myself. Let me tell you Rachel, if the police stop me…you can throw that off [referring to her wig] and show that nice, fine hair up under and you might get away. I may not. I may not even make it to the jail. So, it’s a difference.”… You can watch this particular episode of “The Real” on Monday, November 2.
There’s A Petition To Fire Don Lemon From CNN
Raven-Symone isn’t the only troll who the people want off their TV or mobile screens. A petition has been started to have Don Lemon fired from CNN. Like Raven-Symone, the call for Lemon’s ouster is due to his commentary regarding the high school teen who was assaulted by a police officer in a classroom. Lemon basically said we gotta hear both sides, and was promptly slandered for his troubles. Says the Change.org petition, in part: Since the tragic incident of Trayvon Martin in 2012, CNN anchor Don Lemon has consistently antagonized and defamed the characteristics of African-Americans on the national scale in his mass communications… The petition has a goal of 35,000 supporters and has a little over 31,000 at the time of this post.
