Planet of the Apps: Shark Tank, but for Apps

Planet of the Apps

That's how I imagine whoever pitched the show that Apple is co-producing called, cringingly enough, "Planet of the Apps."

I do have a soft spot for these business-y shows, even though I have very little interest in business. I've been know to get sucked into a marathon of Shark Tank, and I have a TiVo season pass to The Profit (he believes in three things!) and Hotel Impossible so I might enjoy this show. But that name. Oh, that name.


Delays by protesters will be annoying

But isn't the right to protest things a big part of why this country was founded? I am very hopeful that the Philly DNC protests will be peaceful and that both protesters and police a like make sure everyone is safe and heard.

This bit from the NY Times makes me think this will be the case:

Last month, Mayor Jim Kenney signed a bill decriminalizing nuisance offenses in the city, including disorderly conduct, failure to disperse and public drunkenness. The policy was part of a larger effort to decrease the incarceration rate in the city, but the mayor has also said that no one will be arrested solely for protesting without a permit during the convention.
