Thanks, you are right. How could I forget that, as a Weird Al fan… Has been corrected.
Yeah, he has quite a strong following in the politically informed populous, here in Austria. Furthermore, segments like his take on Trump/Drumpf last week are also a topic in most newspapers here.
Regarding the Daily Show, not so much. Personally, some segments of it are just a bit too “trimmed on humour” for my taste, where as John has found a rather healthy dose between making people laugh and informing them.
Regarding the topic of the video, personally I support Apple by 51%, simply because I’m suspecting that it is not so much about keeping users safe, as it is about keeping jailbreaks as hard as possible. So, while they are on the side I support, I still think of them as acting purely for their own gain. It is similar to when Google supported net neutrality. Even though they said it was about helping start-ups, it was about helping themselves.
Have a nice day,
