Google Screwing The Little Guys With New YouTube Monetization Rules

Image
In response to some big time vlogger YouTube has decided not to police those blogs but to punish small YouTube channels by making it harder for them to receive ad revenue sharing.

 Last spring vlogger PewDiePie said a bunch of racist stuff in a few videos and YouTube responded by requiring new channels to receive  10,000 views before they were eligible for monetization. That's fine, I guess, except for I don't see how it impacted PewDiePie since he received millions of views.

Then recently vlogger Logan Paul posted a video of a dead body from Japan's "suicide forest" In response to that YouTube now requires that channels have to have 4,000 hours of watch time in the last year, and 1,000 subscribers. Anyone who doesn't meet the criteria can't make money from ads from February

Both YouTubers have millions of subscribers and viewers. So these changes to policy are not going to impact either of them at all. In fact the only people impacted are the small chan…

What's The Fury over Fire and Fury

Image
It must include some good stuff or maybe it's just on a hot topic, but it appears that Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House is the book to get this year as it is selling out. It also must be good because Donald Trump tried to sue to prevent the books release. He has also said, it is "full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist" Which we all know by now, if Trump says something is not true, that it must be true, in the same way that we know when he says something is true, that it is untrue.

I haven't read the book yet but I did just download it on my kindle, so I will be reading it soon if only to get to the section on why Trump likes McDonalds so much. "He had a long-time fear of being poisoned, one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald's—nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely premade"

I doubt there will be anything revealing in the book that we don't already know. It is pretty clear that people who work for …

PayPal Has a Terrible Security Feature

Image
So check out this great and well thought out design to "Protect my account" by Pay Pal.

I was trying to send someone an invoice but couldn't access my PayPal account because I was traveling. Many companies have features so that when accessing an account from a different location they want to verify it is the actual customer. A fraud feature.

However PayPal didn't bother to really think this through. I tried to follow the process for verification but it wanted to contact my work phone for verification. Think about this, the verification process, the only option they provided me was to call the phone of my office. I  WAS TRAVELING. So, I called customer service from another country at 1.99 per minute. After a 10 minute call where all she did was reset my password. But she didn't actually solve the verification problem. I was then put on hold for another 5 before I had to hang up due to reaching 30.00 in call fees. Which of course they won't offer to pay me bac…
