Computer news:
-The new Firefox browser update 70 is receiving many complaints. I suggest delaying this update for at least a week or 2.
-Apple GPS problem and forced obsolescence, again: Starting November 3, 2019, some iPhone and iPad models introduced in 2012 and earlier will require an iOS update to maintain accurate GPS location and keep the correct date and time. This, Apple claims, is due to the GPS time rollover issue that began affecting GPS-enabled products from other manufacturers on April 6, 2019. This is just another attempt by Apple to deflect responsibility for their forced obsolescence policies, as almost none of these designated devices are capable of installing the required updates! If you use an iPhone 5s or earlier it is now officially obsolete.
If your device is from 2013 or newer and you have the GPS problem, read this for a fix: https://thecellguide.com/how-to-fix-gps-that-is-not-working-on-your-apple-iphone-xr-location-bug-5192


More than 80% of Spain’s egg-laying hens are still living in cages: More than 30 million hens in Spain live in overcrowded cages, according to 2019 figures from the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. Each bird lives in a space the size of a sheet of paper and never sees the sun. Their beaks are trimmed and they endure constant stress as they lay around 470 eggs in a 100-week period. Spain, along with Portugal, is the European leader of the so-called “furnished-cage” system: 82% of hens are in cages, compared to the average of 52% in the European Union. Indeed, in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Sweden, caged hens make up just over 10% of the total.
According to the animal-rights group, the Animal Equality Foundation, six of Spain’s seven national supermarket chains – with the exception of Dia – have publicly committed to protecting animal welfare. Poza. Ester Muñoz Gil, the head of external relations at Guillén Eggs, one of Spain’s largest farms, says that all egg production is set to be cage-free by 2025. Full article
