1) I have auto updates turned on, but why do certain apps still need to be updated manually? I wonder if because their permissions changed which would make sense I guess. but I don't actually know the reason.

2) How to get rid of ADS on the home screen?! To make matters worse the apps advertised are usually total crap or dont interest me. Just look at this screencap.

1) happens to me to i think it is just the playstore

2) try adblock plus if rooted or if not cleanmaster detects ads

If it's on your homescreen, it might either be that you have a widget on your homescreen that's advertising, or your have a shit launcher. You can find replacement launchers on the Google Play Store (Epic Launcher is a good free one that I use on literally all of my devices, it's based on AOSP, and even the free version is fairly customizable). What device is it that has this?

Nova launcher is also pretty good but its all your taste

yea turns out those are widgets and I can just hold to remove them. Now why didn't I think of that?

Anyway I guess this answers both of my questions.

    My favorite part about filing taxes is that I always either owe a disportionate amount of money or get literally pennies back.
  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    And I make under 30k a year.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Just sit in jail
  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    If it was a option just to go to jail for month as opposed to filing taxes I might be tempted, jail ain't that bad atleast in the us.
  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    You just go in for a month and come out with no fines or having to pay them anyway, I would be down.

    hi, good morning
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    @wolffangalchemist here, jail or even simple detention is instead a way to get debts on you by the state
    outright
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    because its not "free", its only free if you stay there but then they want you to pay up once you get released, for all the "shitty service" and abuse they gave you
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I'm not fucking kidding
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    that's how its set up over here
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    and you'll never be able to get out of those debts unless..you commit a crime...thus making an endless cycle
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    they are "smart" you see
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    they're just bastards if you ask me lol
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    some homeless people commit crimes or a lot of misdemenors to get into detention so they have some place to stay even, but of course it will never solve their finances, quite the opposite
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    so yea....its really messed up if you ask me
