Dish is trying to cash in over $ 3 billion in discounts meant to help “very small businesses” during wireless spectrum auctions, but FCC commissioner Ajit Pai isn’t having it. According to The Wall Street Journal, Pai intends to petition commission chairman Tom Wheeler to investigate Dish’s eligibility for these discounts. Pai, who’s been protective over the FCC’s small business discounts in the past, says that allowing a large company like Dish to receive such a large discount “makes a mockery” of the program.
Soon you may be seeing more ads in tweets that aren’t on Twitter.com or various third-party Twitter clients. According to The Wall Street Journal, Twitter spent the past week pitching advertisers on a new plan to roll out “ads within streams of tweets on other publishers’ apps and websites,” which could include places like Flipboard and ESPN’s Sportscenter apps. Twitter is said to be seeking a revenue-sharing deal with those companies, something that could help it make money just about anywhere, but more importantly in places where people might be spending more time than Twitter itself.
Zachary Armstrong has found a universal truth in his artwork—that a yearning for the open mind of childhood connects us all. Sitting in his light-filled studio in Dayton, Ohio, Armstrong is surrounded by relics of his own childhood, objects and drawings……
Ah selfies, we seem to have a love-relationship with them. One moment they are declared to be a sign of mental disorder and the next they are deemed to be an expression of loving oneself. Regardless of which camp you are in, selfies are here to stay for the long run.
Now before you selfie practioners go off to take another selfie (to the resignation of the rest of us), you need to know that not all selfies are tolerated. Obviously there are some that are hazardous, please don’t even think about them. Then there are these 8 selfies that I believe should be retired from our social media feeds. Forever.
Of all places to take a selfie, why are you photographing your perfect face in the loo? I mean, I’m sure there are nicer places to take your selfie at home like the garden or the kitchen. Even your wall would make for a better background.
And why are taking a selfie of yourself while making a dump? Why are you doing this?? This is just nasty. Please keep your business behind closed doors and off social media, good grief.
We’re reaching the end of 2014, why is this still a thing? No, you do not look pretty. If anything, it is absolutely unflattering and incredibly ridiculous. A simple smile would do and you look so much better and attractive and not annoying.
Um, are you okay? Do you need to have some ice cream? Maybe you should get off the Internet for a while you know, so you can pull yourself together.
I still do not know what is the purpose of posting a photo of yourself crying but you should definitely consider taking a break from selfies to down a tub of ice cream. Or doing whatever it is to make yourself happy.
Don’t even get me started with the Oh-I’ve-just-woken-up-and-look-how-fabulous-my-hair-is. Or the ones you took after making love. Just, ew no.
5. Driving Selfies
You obviously did not hear about how this woman met a head-on collision right after she took a selfie while driving. Or the bride-to-be who didn’t make it to her wedding because she was taking a selfie with her maid-in-honor in a car. If you did, you would think twice about doing this:
Because what are priorities, am I right? What is an awesome selfie compared to going to safety or helping the victims, after all. Congratulations on being the most sorry excuse of a human being, a rank which you now share with these people below:
This guy who took a selfie with a burning building in the background.
Please, stop. Get down from there, you’re going to fall. No really, watch out for that – rock.
Look, I know that selfie on top of that super tall building would make this the ultimate selfie or something. You were probably inspired by these guys and this jaw-dropping video they made after climbing a Hong Kong skyscrapper.
Or maybe even you want some on the action like these bunch of people endangering themselves and participants of the Tour de France.

Great design solves problems. For wandering photographers—whether hiking in the mountains or exploring a new city on foot—the on-again-off-again issue of accessing camera gear from backpacks always lingers. California-based Mindshift Gear caught the attention of the…
