Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker.

Twitter can put fans in direct internet contact with their acting heroes. Mark Hamill, beloved for his role of Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise, has always been down to chat with fans on the service, but now he's putting limits on his interactions.

Hamill tweeted a heartfelt message Tuesday asking fans to stop sending him direct messages.

"To remain on Twitter I can't respond to DMs anymore. No way to keep up w/ the daily barrage of requests for Donations-Phone Calls-Signatures-Skypes-Birthday Greetings, etc," Hamill wrote. He ended it with a polite "Hope you understand. Love you all but can't keep up w/ all the demands! #NoDMsPLEASE."

A helpful fan told Hamill he could adjust his Twitter settings to only receive direct messages from people he follows.

Another fan dropped a joke into the thread, writing, "Mark, can you sign my petition to keep Twitter DMs open? It would mean a lot to me. And to the people." Hamill responded with "Good one!" and a GIF of a face-palming, laughing chimp.

Some fans thought Hamill's DMs may have already been closed to the general public, but the actor could still be receiving messages from people he had prior direct conversations with, even if his account to set to block messages from users he doesn't follow.

Twitter developer David LaMacchia publicly responded to Hamill's tweet, offering to look into the DM issue. "Hey Mark, I work at Twitter and saw this," LaMacchia wrote. "I've forwarded this concern to some other engineers. Would love to ask you a few questions because I want to get more info about the issue. If you get time to DM me (the irony!) please do!"

Madden 19 goes for emotion again, but what it needs most is to be portable

Madden 19 goes for emotion again, but what it needs most is to be portable
I'm sitting on my sofa, Xbox One controller in hand, playing Madden 19. I'm playing Longshot mode -- it's the second storyline mode that EA Sports has added to its annual NFL game.

I didn't play Longshot when it was introduced last year. It didn't interest me at all. I play Madden as a way to learn about the NFL season, and model future games that my favorite troubled team, the New York Jets, might play. I play it as penance for a weird childhood going to Jets games I only half liked, and an adulthood where I've become addicted to following the team my dad used to love before he died.

Madden and I are old friends.

I'm playing Madden even though the NFL has become a bizarre landscape. And I no longer have season tickets to Jets games. And I find it harder to care about any of it in the real world.

Longshot: Homecoming ended up sucking me in. I think it's because I didn't expect it to be so much like a movie. It's more storyline than gameplay, and it's heavy on the cliches. But I ended up finding it unexpectedly dramatic and emotional.

It stars Ron Cephas Jones as the coach of the Dallas Cowboys, Friday Night Lights' Scott Porter as a player who feels a lot like his character on Friday Night Lights and even, weirdly, Rob Schneider as the Cowboys' general manager. The cast is generally great. The music is well done. It worked for me -- even though the simple storyline paralleling the NFL preseason and two players trying to make a roster seems pretty basic.

Somewhere in the middle of Ron Cephas Jones' heartfelt soliloquy on aging and parenthood, I shed a tear.

Steve Jobs lied to his daughter about name of the Apple Lisa

Steve Jobs lied to his daughter about name of the Apple Lisa
It might seem obvious that the Apple Lisa, released in 1983, was named for Apple co-founder Steve Jobs' daughter Lisa, who was born in 1978.

But in her upcoming memoir, Small Fry, Lisa Brennan-Jobs reveals that her father lied to her about the name up until she was 27, and it was U2 front man Bono who exposed the truth.

In the fascinating and emotional excerpt, published in the September issue of Vanity Fair, Brennan-Jobs discusses her complicated relationship with her famous father, who denied paternity until a 1980 DNA test proved otherwise.

As for the Lisa, it was a commercial failure, with 3,000 unsold computers later buried in a Utah landfill. When Brennan-Jobs bragged to her school friends about her namesake, they responded that they'd never heard of a computer called Lisa. But for Brennan-Jobs, the belief that it was named for her could bring her closer to the famous man who was, in some ways, more legend than family member.

When she was in high school, she finally asked him about it. "I tried to sound like I was curious, nothing more," she writes. "If he would just give me this one thing."

But Jobs denied it in a "clipped, dismissive voice," she says, adding, "Sorry, kid."

A jury says Apple must pay $145 million in damages for patent infringement.

Apple must pay Canadian patent licensing company WiLan $145.1 million in damages for patent infringement, a California jury ruled Wednesday.

The jury said that some iPhone models infringed two WiLan wireless communications technology patents.

One of those is for a "method and apparatus for bandwidth request protocols in a wireless communication system" and the other is for "adaptive call admission control for use in a wireless communication system," 9to5Mac reports.

Apple rejected infringement claims in pretrial filings, and reportedly plans to appeal the verdict.

This is second time the companies have met in court. Apple was found not guilty of infringing on other WiLan wireless networking technology patents in October 2013.

Neither Apple nor WiLan immediately responded to requests for comment.

Apple settled a long-running patent dispute with Samsung last June in a case that went all the way to the Supreme Court.

Navy Shirt & Mom Jeans

Navy Shirt & Mom Jeans

Jedna z zasad pomagających zrobić porządki w szafie mówi, że jeśli się nie miało czegoś na sobie przez pół roku to należy daną rzecz wyrzucić. I choć naprawdę uwielbiam mieć ład w szafie, to są w niej rzeczy dla których złamałam tę regułę. Po prostu czuję że to jeszcze nie czas by się nimi pożegnać. Zalicza się do nich między innymi koszula, którą widzicie w dzisiejszym poście. Ostatni raz miałam ją na sobie z rok, albo i dwa temu ale mimo to wiedziałam że przyjdzie czas, że będę chciała założyć ją ponownie. Jak widzicie czas ten w końcu naszedł i wiecie co? Dobrze zrobiłam że jej nie wyrzuciłam :)

A w Waszych szafach są jakieś ubrania, które przetrwają każde sprzątanie mimo że nie miałyście ich na sobie całe wieki? Czy może twardo trzymacie się "porządkowych reguł"?

White T-shirt & Denim Skirt

White T-shirt & Denim Skirt


Kilka miesięcy temu pisałam Wam jak zbawienna dla mojej szafy okazała się lektura "SLOWfashion" (post znajdziecie TUTAJ). Nie dość że z pomocą tej książki zrobiłam wielkie porządki w mojej wiecznie zawalonej garderobie, to dzięki niej również sporządziłam listę rzeczy których do tej pory w mojej szafie brakowało.
Myślę że troszkę Was zdziwi informacja, że na owej liście znajdował się (uwaga, uwaga!werble) klasyczny, biały t-shirt. Pewnie pomyślicie że zwariowałam, bo przecież nie raz pokazywałam Wam na blogu stylizacje z białymi koszulkami. Tak to prawda, ale żaden z moich t-shirtów nie jest takim typowym - jak na WF ;) Mam białe koszulki z wiskozy, z lnu czy z cienkiej, lekko prześwitującej bawełny. A t-shirt którego szukałam to taki z gęsto tkanej bawełny, bez dekoltu, bez nadruku. Taki który każda z Was na pewno kiedyś miała i to w ilości sztuk większej niż 1. Najbardziej klasyczny, najprostszy i jak się okazało... najtrudniejszy do znalezienia. Ale jak się człowiek uprze to i igłę w stogu siana znajdzie. Mi się właśnie to udało! I wiecie co? Poszukiwania były jak najbardziej słuszne bo w tej zwykłej, białej koszulce czuję się po prostu świetnie!

A czy Wam udało się ostatnio coś kupić z Waszych list "must have'?

Striped Shirt & Boyfriend Jeans

Striped Shirt & Boyfriend Jeans

Mam nadzieję że spodobała się Wam pasiasta koszula z ostatniego posta, bo dziś ponownie ją zobaczycie ;)  Tym razem jednak pokażę Wam całą stylizację i chyba żadnej z Was nie zdziwi jak napiszę, że wspomnianą już koszulę połączyłam z jeansami. Ok, ok... na pewno wiem że Was nie zdziwi - bo po pierwsze już widziałyście zdjęcie powyżej, a po drugie trochę mnie znacie ;) 

Zestaw taki jak ten świetnie sprawdzi się w letnie dni, kiedy to rano temperatura nie jest zbyt wysoka (zwłaszcza jak się wychodzi do pracy po 6 rano) a po południu żar się leje z nieba. Dość luźna i wykonana w 100% z bawełny koszula to idealny wybór na właśnie taką pogodę. Tak samo jak podarciuchy o kroju boyfriend. Taki model spodni nie przylega mocno do ciała, a dziurkami też troszkę powietrza wpadnie także nikomu się pupa nie spoci ;) 
A jakie są Wasze "patenty" na letnie stylizacje zimno-ciepło?

ENG: Babes! I hope that you liked my new striped shirt, cause today you gonna see it again. I decided to match it with boyfriend jeans. This way I get an outfit which is perfect for summer days in Poland. In the morning is much colder than in the afternoon, but thx to this loose, cotton shirt and ripped jeans I can survive this chilly&hot days easily.
