Discontent is an iOS ‘Content’ Blocker ➝

From the App Store description:

Discontent blocks web content. Not scripts, not ads, not trackers. Content. Stop distracting yourself with marginally informative blog posts and start living.

Pairs nicely with an ad blocker for a true barebones web experience.

This is hilarious.

The Engadget Exodus ➝

Paul Miller, Nilay Patel, and now Josh Topolsky have all left Engadget over the past month or two. Things aren’t looking great for AOL.

Leaving AOL ➝

Paul Miller:

I’d love to be able to keep doing this forever, but unfortunately Engadget is owned by AOL, and AOL has proved an unwilling partner in this site’s evolution. It doesn’t take a veteran of the publishing world to realize that AOL has its heart in the wrong place with content. As detailed in the “AOL Way,” and borne out in personal experience, AOL sees content as a commodity it can sell ads against. That might make good business sense (though I doubt it), but it doesn’t promote good journalism or even good entertainment, and it doesn’t allow an ambitious team like the one I know and love at Engadget to thrive.
