Not as far as I know. :(

For the record, it was the animated GIF of Michael J. Fox spinning around that finally drove me to block Radar posts from my Tumblr dashboard. It took all of 60 seconds to do, and anyone can do it. Here, I’ll prove it:
Install this Chrome extension called Stylish.
Load your dashboard.
Open Stylist and select “Manage Installed Styles.”
Click the button that says “Write new style” (like the Beastie Boys)
Make it look like the screenshot above*, and click “Save”
Boom. Done. Eat a sandwich.
Q.E.D.
* Here, you can even copy/paste the code: div #tumblr_radar {display:none;}

Add a directive to get rid of sponsored posts (Annabelle movie showing up every 10 posts, anyone?) using the same method by which you killed the radar last year. Just add this and they’re gone:
div .sponsored-posts {display:none;}
So here’s what my rule looks like now:
div .sponsored_post {display:none;}div #tumblr_radar {display:none;}div .controls_section_radar {display:none;}
It’s super duper easy.
You’re welcome.

Dad gets OfficeMax mail addressed ‘Daughter Killed in Car Crash’ - Los Angeles Times

An off-and-on customer of OfficeMax, Mike Seay has gotten the office supply company’s junk mail for years. But the mail that the grieving Lindenhurst, Ill., father said he got from OfficeMax last week was different. It was addressed to “Mike Seay, Daughter Killed in Car Crash.” Strange as that sounds, the mail reached the right guy. Seay’s daughter Ashley, 17, was killed in a car crash with her boyfriend last year. OfficeMax somehow knew. And in a world where bits of personal data are mined from customers and silently sold off and shuffled among corporations, Seay appears to be the victim of some marketing gone horribly wrong.


The future we deserved.

Hoax: Do Not Try To Charge Your iPhone In The Microwave.
{Seriously? People fell for this? — Tj}
via Pittsburgh.CBSlocal.com
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – An iPhone hoax has surfaced a day after Apple released its new iOS 8 operating system.
It’s telling users to charge their iPhones in the microwave.
Obviously, that isn’t going to work, and it will mean the end of your iPhone.
The hoax has gone viral on Twitter with several users posting an alleged ad from Apple about the iOS 8 “Wave” technology.
“You can now Wave-charge your device by placing it within a household microwave for a minute and a half,” it says.
It also says, “iOS 8 contains new drivers that interface with your device’s radio-baseband allowing it to synchronize with microwave frequencies.”
Obviously none of these are true.
Some Twitter users have posted photos of burned up iPhones.
Others are posting warnings to other iPhone users not to fall for the trick.
The iPhone hoax appears realistic because it looks like an official Apple advertisement, complete with the copyright symbol at the bottom and the perfect use of fonts.
