Updated for Blockr 1.0.1 and Adblock Fast, 1Blocker still fastest: https://brooksreview.net/2015/09/content-blocker-test/

Ad Block Fast doesn’t block shitty Deck ads and has no options. So it’s not getting my seal of approval.

That might be the last time I use Due. Restarting my device? No thanks.

Categories

Wow had to restart my phone because Due had stuck notifications (app said to restart).

Good news for those of you wondering when I will be reviewing some more bags…

Oh, does this new “tweeting” method work?

Categories
Snippets

I mean I figured no other sites would link to it. But still it amuses me.

Categories

The only big site to link to my content locker stuff is Lifehacker. Respect to them for that.

Looks like my post on why Native Advertising is a shitty solution just published. That wraps my rant on content blockers and advertising for the week.

I have one more post on content blockers coming. And then I’ll write about why “native” advertising is not the solution, and is problematic in big ways.

I want everything at Filson. Always.

Side note: I need to find a contact there so I can review their bags…

It’s cute, all the Canadians I see amped up about baseball this last month or so. So cute.

So The Deck updated their privacy policy. And now that it’s easy to block them they don’t want to track you. How nice.

In case you hadn’t heard, 1Blocker is the fastest content blocker I could find: https://brooksreview.net/2015/09/content-blocker-test/

Ok just published a more in depth look at the top three fastest content blockers.

Categories

“The Deck doesn’t track you”
Yes it does.
“Umm stay tuned.”

:/

Categories
Snippets

I also plan on a larger test suite, and trying to mix combinations to see if there is a fast combo.

Categories
Snippets

I have more thoughts coming today about my top three picks for content blockers.

Categories
Snippets

I mean they will use content blockers, but they rely on the blocked content to make a living. I guess I have to do it?

Categories
Snippets

Now realizing that most major sites haven’t reviewed content blockers, because secretly they don’t want people using them.

Categories
Snippets

Seriously though, someone is working on a comparison post between all these content blockers, right?

Categories
Snippets

I’ll tell you what else goes down easy…

Categories
Snippets

So now can we do something about that tiny ass text on DF?

Categories
Snippets

Ok, new icon added. sigh

Good lord, Apple pulled my logo from Apple News because it doesn’t look good enough, LOL

Categories

However I won’t make more money, because I need JavaScript to process new payments.

¯_(ツ)_/¯

Categories
Snippets

Fun fact: you can block every script and CSS file on my site, and I’ll still make the same money.

Categories

For those not finding @brooksreview in Apple News you just have to keep doing the same search a few times. It’s odd like that.

OmniFocus complication for Apple Watch is the shit.

And while I seem skeptical about working from the iPad Pro. I’ve already proven to myself it can be done. http://ift.tt/1CS5UbZ

In light of recent Apple announcements. Now has never been a better time for you to become a member of my site. Better for me, that is.

Has anyone heard whether Apple iPhone upgrade customers will be able to get the iPhone on day one?

Categories

Today I used a modern tool that still has a save button in it. And man was I confused as to why my changes weren’t saving.

Categories

Huh in setting up iOS 9 it looks like Apple addressed the worst part of Apple Pay: adding in cards. super fast now, no calling into banks.

It will feel smaller to carry a MacBook than an iPad Pro + Keyboard case thing.
