Here's Why People Don't Buy Things With Bitcoin

An anonymous reader shares a report: One reason for this, if you live in Toronto like me (or anywhere else for that matter), is that there's basically nowhere to spend digital coins in the real world. Coinmap, a service that maps bitcoin-accepting locations all over the world, shows a few places that accept bitcoin in Toronto, but it's clearly out of date -- I called several businesses listed on the site and they had no idea what bitcoin even is. A bigger problem is perfectly illustrated in a Reddit post from Wednesday morning complaining that a bitcoin transaction worth just $9 still hasn't gone through the network after two days of waiting. Two. Days. The likely reason is that the fee attached to the transaction in order to incentivize faster confirmation -- 50 cents, which is about as much of a premium as I'd pay for a $9 transaction -- simply wasn't enough.

The Defenders: Jessica Jones' 10 best wisecracks, ranked

When the things get rough, when the battle seems lost, when Black Sky prepares to crumble New York City to oblivion, or when Danny Rand gets carried away talking about his chi, you can always count on Jessica Jones to throw the largest eye roll the likes of which this world has ever seen.
Chalk it up to her morning cocktail of coffee and whiskey, but the strongwoman private investigator offers Marvel and Netflix’s The Defenders not only some much-needed muscle in the war against The Hand, but some deadpan humor to take these heroes’ egos down a few pegs — including “karate kid” Iron Fist.
The Defenders, which premiered on Netflix last week, at times became a superhero take on Everybody Hates Chris (but more like Everybody Hates Danny.). Everyone seemed to have a wisecrack to toss his way, including Daredevil’s martial arts mentor Stick, who said, “This one — the Immortal Iron Fist, Living Weapon, and protector of the ancient city — is still a thundering dumba–.”
So, the mystic warrior became an easy target for Jessica. Still, that wasn’t even some of her best stuff. Here’s a breakdown of some of her best one-liners — and, because this is the internet, we ranked them.

The Villainess is a loopy, bloody trip: EW review

The Villainess kicks off with a six-minute symphony of pure action-film invention. You’re looking, first-person, through the eyes of an unseen megabadass – the kind of relentless slicing/punching/shooting/jump-sliding killer that can lay magnificent waste to a whole bad-dude mob. The camera moves through a corridor, a stairway, a window, a meth lab. There are guns, knives, blood spraying every direction. For connoisseurs, it’s an Oldboy plus an Atomic Blonde plus the only good action scene from Daredevil, but there are some genuinely unexpected moments. When it seems like things can’t possibly get any crazier, a door opens – and there are a couple dozen more bad guys, in a gym!

Fellow Republicans rebuke Trump over government shutdown threat

Fellow Republicans rebuke Trump over government shutdown threatNEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Donald Trump's fellow Republicans rebuked the president on Wednesday after his threat to shut down the U.S. government over funding for a border wall rattled markets and cast a shadow over congressional efforts to raise the country's debt ceiling and pass spending bills. Congress will have about 12 working days when it returns on Sept. 5 from its summer break to approve spending measures to keep the government from shutting down, and a deadline also is closing in for raising the cap on the amount the federal government may borrow.

Wading Through AccuWeather's Response

On Tuesday, ZDNet reported that popular weather app AccuWeather was sending location-identifying information to a monetization firm, even when a person had disabled location data from the app. In a response, AccuWeather said today "if a user opts out of location tracking on AccuWeather, no GPS coordinates are collected or passed without further opt-in permission from the user." But it is misleading people. John Gruber of DaringFireball writes: The accusation has nothing to do with "GPS coordinates." The accusation is that their iOS app is collecting Wi-Fi router names and MAC addresses and sending them to servers that belong to Reveal Mobile, which in turn can easily be used to locate the user. Claiming this is about GPS coordinates is like if they were caught stealing debit cards and they issued a denial that they never stole anyone's cash. The accusation comes from Will Strafech, a respected security researcher who discovered the "actual information" by observing network traffic. He saw the AccuWeather iOS app sending his router's name and MAC address to Reveal Mobile. This isn't speculation. They were caught red-handed.

Colorado Brewers Guild’s Hop the Vote Comes Back for GABF

DENVER – The Colorado Brewers Guild is bringing back Hop the Vote, a spirited but friendly competition between the Colorado State House of Representatives and Colorado State Senate, to the Great American Beer Festival (GABF). Hop the Vote is a time for Colorado legislators to set aside their differences and brew some beer.
The Hop the Vote initiative was introduced by the Colorado Brewers Guild in 2014 to highlight the importance of beer in the Colorado economy, as well as the relationship between lawmakers and Colorado craft brewers.
“During GABF all eyes in the craft beer industry will be on Denver, and that makes it the perfect time for a campaign like Hop the Vote,” said Steve Kurowski, operations director of the Colorado Brewers Guild. “The 300+ breweries account for $1.7 billion which directly impacts the state economy, and that means it is important to keep our legislators informed on what is going on with Find a Craft Brewerycraft brewers.”
