Your Android Phone Has a Built-In Childproofing Feature

VERY useful feature to stop accidentally breaking out of an app. Useful also for people streaming from their phones

Ever needed to hand your phone to a kid? Even if you don’t want to, sometimes you’re trying to keep them quiet at a restaurant, or calm them down at the doctor’s. But handing over an unlocked phone is just asking for the kid to delete all your home screen shortcuts (or, worse, work emails). Fortunately there’s a way to fix this.

Tina Wants To Borrow Wally’s Phone – Dilbert Comic Strip on 2017-05-01 | Dilbert by Scott Adams

I should try this the next time someone asks to use my phone 😛

Tina: My phone is broken. Can I use yours to make a call? Wally: Absolutely. If it seems warm, that’s because I was using it in the men’s room for the past two hours. Tina: I’ll ask someone else. Wally: Yup.

Epic, near-EVE-worthy troll sabotages Elite: Dangerous community event | Ars Technica

How to trust no-one in the deep dark world of space — kinda also reflects real life.

I need to figure out how to play this game properly (I have it on Steam and like the graphics, but the controls are really frustrating….)

“Smiling Dog Crew” shows how you should never let a wolf guard your chickens.
