Here’s why ad blockers don’t work in the Apple News app

Why don’t content blockers — aka ad blockers — work in Apple News? Here’s the deal!

Apple’s content blocker extensions, released last year, let third party apps set up rules to block ads, web fonts, comments, and other content in Safari and the also-new Safari View Controller, used in apps like Tweetbot to show web pages.

Content blockers don’t, however, work in Apple’s own News app. So, if a publisher doesn’t serve Apple News Format, or provide a full RSS feed for Apple News to render, Apple News has to go out and get the original web page… ads and all. That’s has led some to ask if there’s a massive massive conspiracy at play designed to protect the ads of publishers enrolled in Apple’s News program. The truth, of course, is far simpler and more mundane.

iOS content blockers only work in Safari and Safari View Controller
News.app isn’t Safari and doesn’t use Safari View Controller.
Safari View Controller offers a lot of performance and power, but it’s tightly locked down …

Understanding debt

Business man and computer at beach. Familiar feeling of working hard and still sinking in debt, pinching. Without leverage, the private equity sector as we know it wouldn’t exist. While some tech execs and VCs recoil at the thought of using leverage, the truth is that the Innovation Economy has accessed debt for more than 35 years. Given that, debt is worth spending the time to understand. Read More

Cloud Sites Hosting Review

Cloud Sites is pitched as a “premium web hosting for serious developers”. It promises to run high-traffic websites reliably, and “fast.” It is also a managed hosting, which means that the hosting company is responsible for system updates, server security, and system maintenance. The customer is responsible for the application and its security. How does it stack up to scrutiny? let’s see. Context: Among the few things I do at […]

Lies of Astaroth for Xbox One review: An RPG card game missing the MMO

I’m not going to lie, card games like Magic: The Gathering are already a rather niche genre of video-games, but there has always been little to contend with.

Until Hearthstone became hugely popular on PC, and MMORPGs began slowly making their way onto the Xbox One, there wasn’t anything to challenge Magic. Undoubtedly, there was no way Hearthstone wouldn’t be massive, with the World of Warcraft and Magic fans behind it. They’re tall boots to fill.

With that in mind, the Lies of Astaroth is a duckling standing in elephant shoes. Hear me out, though.

It’s clear that developers iFree Studios put a lot of work into the MMORPG card-battle game that is The Lies of Astaroth. The level of detail for the imagery on each of the cards is truly something to appreciate, particularly if you’re a fan of scantily clad anime ladies so blessed with chest you’re in danger of having a nosebleed. The cards are colorful and so varied, investigating new ones when you receive them is a must. For a free-t…
