Welcome to the Freethought Forum
The lofty high Renaissance and marked mannerism. The heavy and ornate Baroque era, followed by the gentle Rococo. Harsh neo-classicism, rich romanticism, lush naturalism, stern realism, blurred impressionism. Heady surrealism, blockish cubism, postwar Dada, pointy-cornered art deco and cookie cutter Bauhaus. Let us skip the dreariness of the past half century and arrive finally at FF Style.

All these Verizon owned companies are now "Oath", and it is terrible.
Apr 18, 2018 - 4:07 PM - by specious_reasons
I still have a Yahoo Mail account. It is the account I use for companies and charities to send me stuff (including :ff:).

Yesterday when I started my browser, my default homepage (Yahoo Mail) exploded into something called Oath, my initial thought was that Yahoo was hacked by someone with really bad taste. I figured out it's just Verizon's rebranding, as the eye-straining animation was telling me. I eventually found my way back to Yahoo Mail and fixed my bookmark and homepage settings.

This morning, the same thing happened. It took multiple tries to get "mail.yahoo.com" to actually stop bursting the Oath homepage. Then, I had to agree to some new EULA, which probably rivals Facebook's for invasiveness.

This is making me ask why I'm still using my Yahoo email account.

Audible
Mar 30, 2018 - 9:42 PM - by ChuckF
I usually listen to podcasts and stuff in the car on my morning and evening commutes. I recently bought one of those fancy new stereo things for my car, that can do all the CarPlay crap, and have started listened to a couple of audiobooks recently. I bought some through iTunes trying to spend down a $100 gift card that I got like YEARS ago, and have also bought a couple through Amazon.

So I bought one on Amazon that was delivered through the Audible app, but I haven't actually subscribed to Audible (I don't think.) I can access some content for free through my Prime membership, but I am considering a subscription. However, I am finding it difficult to model how the credits system will actually work in real life, because it seems like I am going to wind up paying for a bunch of credits I will not use. Thoughts, Audible users?

Also I continue to despise the Apple Podcasts app but have yet to migrate over to Audible - better, I assume?
