Excellent video explains real purpose of NFL protests

by Mark Frauenfelder

For people who want to believe the NFL protests are against the National Anthem, this video of Fox Sports 1 and First Things First host Nick Wright's explanation won't mean anything. For everyone else, it's worth watching.

Wright went on to clarify that it is not true that the players are protesting the anthem, flag, country, or military. They are protesting systemic racism and police brutality.

“What I will engage on is what is actually happening, because I can’t walk past a television screen without seeing this on the bottom line: ‘NFL players protest anthem,’” he said. “It is amazing to get a fact error in a four-word headline.”

He added, “When people march, they are not protesting traffic. The players have been uniform that they are using the anthem as a vehicle to protest inequality, police brutality, and racial injustice. And this story — by the president and others, many well before the president ever chimed in — has been hijacked to making it about the anthem when in reality the anthem was always just the vehicle.”

The protests have been hijacked by folks with an agenda. I tried to set the record straight this morning. I think this is worth your time.

How to save your Android phone from bad skins and crappy OEM software

by Ron Amadeo

Android skins seem to get more annoying every year. The skins themselves aren't getting worse, necessarily, but more and more third-party apps have adopted Google's unified Material Design aesthetic. Google has been pushing Material Design since 2014—it publishes comprehensive design guidelines, provides frameworks so developers can easily get consistent designs up and running, and continually has conferences and publishes videos explaining and promoting this design language. Google recently announced there were over 1 million Material apps in the Play Store.

OEMs tend to completely ignore Material Design, which leaves a user of a skinned phone with a bunch of Material Google apps, an increasing number of Material third-party apps, and a weird OEM-designed slate of core apps that clash with everything else. If you care about what the software you use looks like, it sucks.

If you bought a skinned Android phone and are looking for a more unified look, there are some things you can do to fix it, however. Android remains very customizable, and with a combination of apps, settings, and lots of crapware removal, it's possible to get something that at least looks like the Google-designed Android software.
