Sometimes an invention comes along that has life-changing capabilities.
Edison created the light bulb, Steve Jobs launched the iPod and now James Shamsi has created the #KardBlock.
The #KardBlock is an internet tool that will block all Kardashian news and content from your internet feed.
“If there’s anything on your newsfeed, the website you’re on, whatever… we simply make it disappear.
“You won’t ever know the stories about the Kardashians are there, because you won’t ever see them,” the KardBlock website promises.
On the website, the creator James Shamsi speaks for a lot of people in the world when he says, “We’re tired of logging on to any site and seeing stories of the Kardashian family overshadow REAL news.”
The #KardBlock tool is a version of AdBlock, which blocks ads on YouTube, Facebook and all ads by default, and has been downloaded over 200 million times. The program is said to be in the second phase of software testing.
There are definitely people out there who want to know more about social issues, such as the recent earthquake in Nepal, rather than what hair colour Kim has decided upon today.
It’s now possible they will never have to read about Kylie Jenner’s lip-plumping ever again.
But wait, there’s more good news.
“We are also working on customization to block content related to Justin Bieber,” Shamsi writes.
The website is kardblock.com. All it requires is your email address and then that’s when the magic happens.
But it does leaves us with one question: if a Kardashian falls in the woods and nobody sees their Instagram video, would anyone hear them scream?
