Apple Watch saved a grandma's life by catching heart condition

"A Queens grandmother is crediting her smartwatch for saving her life.

Marie Bourque, 74, woke up in the middle of the night in October with an alert from her Apple Watch buzzing her wrist, informing her of an irregular heartbeat. She immediately got herself to the hospital — an act that saved her from a potential stroke or heart attack, had she waited too much longer."

My Apple watch is absolutly amazing - I can't imagine being without mine!!!

California Supreme Court says law requiring presidential candidates to turn over tax returns is inva

Source: CNN

"The California Supreme Court on Thursday unanimously ruled the state's new law that requires presidential candidates to disclose their tax returns for the previous five years to get on the ballot is invalid."

If we can't get this done in CA, it doesn't look promising for the rest of the country.
Of course, I expected it to be upheld and Trump would simply ignore the state since he had no chance of winning it.

I really didn't expect a unanimous ruling on this.

Any ideas on how they can amend this to pass scrutiny?

Got My Apple Card Yesterday ... Ask Me Anything

Feels amazing
Clean, sleek look
No account number on it
No signature tape
Just my name and the Apple logo on the front

Very, very impressive - but not my best credit card

No purchase protection
No warranty extension program

The guy at the gun shop was very impressed today

Preferred Podcast App for iPhone?

So I'm big into podcast and starting to have trouble keeping up with new episodes vs what I've already listened to.

I started with the Podcast app on the iPhone and it wasn't bad ... switched to Overcast and it doesn't seem to be any better, played around with Stitcher yesterday and it didn't seem as good as either of the other two.

Looking for a recommendation ... I need to pick one and just live with it.

If you have a favorite - I'd to know what it is and, if you don't mind, why you like it.

Thanks in Advance

I support Joe Biden ... He is correct on bi-partisan cooperation

No matter how much we hate the other side or the other people we are going to have to work with them where we have agreement to get things done.

I still expect our side to fight on issues where we don't agree -- but the bottom line is that be an absolutist is going to get our party, and our country, NOWHERE!

As much as we hate to admit it - there are millions of Americans that support the other guys. I'm not saying we should compromise on our core principals - but there are things we can agree on and move forward.
