Google pauses crackdown on apps that use accessibility features

  Google pauses crackdown on apps that use accessibility features Almost a month ago, Google cracked down on developers that used Android's accessibility features for apps that weren't expressly created for people with disabilities.&nbsp;Several developers complained about the strict policy enforcement, which could affect apps like Last Pass (which uses accessibility features to help fill in form fields and passwords), Tasker (which uses the features to monitor launched apps) and Greenify (which shuts down apps when they use too much power).

post. account. Dog Poop Pick - Up Service 916- Dog - Poop 1st Month FREE!

A council has defended a controversial poster campaign for cleaner streets which shows a toddler appearing to eat dog poo . Bristol City Council 's move comes after a Madrid town hall decided to crack down on dog mess by boxing it all up and posting it back to the offending owners.

A Melbourne council's "number one" priority is cracking down on dog walkers who don't carry plastic bags to pick up their pooches' number twos.

Unprepared owners face a $200 fine for walking pets with no poo-bag on hand, with council officers in southeast Melbourne empowered to approach and question potential offenders.

Residents of suburban Berwick, Cranbourne, Narre Warren and Hallam could also be fined $500, up $300 from the previous penalty, if they fail to bin doggy business.

"The onus is clearly put back on the people who own dogs to do the right thing," City of Casey Mayor Geoff Ablett told ABC radio on Wednesday.

"For those who don't, you could end up copping a harsh fine."

"This has been the number one priority, from the animal management side of things, that people want to see changed," he added.

"Responsible dog owners think it's a great thing, the residents think it's a great thing."

But local dog-walker Ben Smith questioned the severity of the fines and how the bag law would be enforced.

"What if they go twice? Are you going to take three or four (bags)? Where do you draw the line?" the Cranbourne East Dog Owners Facebook group founder told 3AW, noting the council did not provide free bags at a local dog park.

"It's sending the message that not picking up your dog poo is just as dangerous as high-speed speeding."
