I don't think a wallet company can afford to have somebody go all JIHAD on them ;)

We should stop lettings terrorist organizations choose their own names.

Al Queada? More like The Sloppy Party Bottoms.

Hamas? More like The Donkey Farkers.

Farc? More like The Scaly Scrote Fungi.

ISIS? More like Smegma Internationale.

How about just renaming them all to GOP.

I can't believe they just folded like that.

Because the GOP, or "Grand Old Party" is the Democratic party in my Utopia.

The Republicans are the "Fathers And GrandfatherS" and every media outlet will use their rightful name regardless of their half hearted jokes that they're actually the GOP.

I have that app as bloatware on my phone.  Either Verizon or Samsumg pre-installed that on my phone, and I've been too lazy to see if I can remove it.  Seriously, most of the apps on my cell phone are bloatware.

They should change it to Shazam.

For a terrorist group, they certainly did rock...thought that was frowned upon.

On the S5 you can disable it and prevent it from updating.  That's the best I could do.

Isis better nut up or it'll find out that it's taken on more than it can swallow.

Back in the 70's I wouldn't have minded watching her take on more than she could swallow.

I like the cut of your jib, keep up the good work.

Rumor is their new name is "All Cada" because no terrorists would pick a name that sounded like that.
 
2014-07-08 10:27:21 AM  
They've gone through more name changes than my bank...no, not the wallet company, the other one.

I have an S4. The S5 came out a few months later. I just haven't bothered looking into what I can and can't remove without rooting my phone.

I just assumed they where expanding their business.

That's the one nice thing about Windows Phone. Microsoft actually designed it so that any 3rd party app can be uninstalled. There's some first party stuff like Xbox and OneDrive that is core to the OS that can't be removed, but the rest is a simple matter to uninstall.

That was the worst timing ever. It ranked up there with AYDS.

You know when the news about ISIS started coming in from Iraq, the guy who was in charge of naming the company was just sitting there thinking "WTF? Why me?"

I actually used that in the office a while ago when my manager wondered aloud why one of our contractors didn't change his name from Osama.

/CSB

I used to have a co-worker who had the same last name of a famous singer and the first letter of their first names were the same.   When ever we got new logins or emails from some other department it would list the singer's name instead of my co-workers and he would spend the next couple days trying to get it changed if he could get it changed at all,  many times it was hard coded.  We always got a laugh at that.

Wait, there's someone else out there with a Nexus 5?  I've only seen one other person with a N5 besides me.

Dear Worshippers of False Goddesses,

It has come to my notice that some of you have been taking our name in vain lately. We are not amused.

Isis

(Dictated to a water melon, not read)

P.S. Did that Seven-Gated-Whore, Ishtar, set you up to this as a prank? I hate her.
