So those people who follow you and their tumbler blog redirects to tumblerlogin.com or some other website asking for you to re-enter your Tumblr credentials. They’re just scammers trying to get your log-in data right?
It’s being widely reported that notorious mobster Whitey Bulger was captured by the FBI following a media campaign focusing on his girlfriend which included ads aired on daytime TV. This makes me think. Fox canceled America’s Most Wanted this year and Oprah recently ended her show after twenty-five years on the air.

Rather than trying to banish the term “war on terror” (as the Obama administration did in 2009), let’s face it squarely. Practically speaking, at the moment as for the past near-decade, it is little but a catch-all phrase for “endless war.”
In Ronald Reagan’s America, Bias instantly became the poster child for what could happen to anyone who didn’t just say no. His sudden, shocking death dominated the headlines and unnerved millions of Americans, who were told that the cardiac arrhythmia he suffered was the result of casual, one-time experimentation with drugs. “Leonard’s only vice,” his college coach, Charles “Lefty” Driesell, had declared just days earlier, “is ice cream.”
Responding to this outpouring of grief and fear, Congress promptly passed (and Reagan signed) the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986. In their haste, they may not have fully grasped what they were doing.
That’s the bottom line for Google. It doesn’t really matter to them whether or not ChromeOS will be a huge success. Google’s original Nexus One smartphone wasn’t particularly successful but it helped set the bar for all of these big, Android smartphones with huge screens and fast processors which drive the popularity of Android. Similarly, the original Chrome browser was so influential that it drove the evolution of both Firefox and Internet Explorer. And now with Windows 8’s support for HTML 5 apps, ChromeOS is effectively winning the game for Google before it has even been released by driving the development of the world’s most popular operating system in a direction which ultimately favors Google.
