"A new App Tracking Protection feature in its Android app will automatically block third-party trackers across all other apps. Users will also be able to see which apps want to track them and where they’re trying to send data."

Google says I did not shared any location history in the past 5 years and I am proud of it 😃

@dsoft It amazes me how many people don't understand that earning 1% on a bank account with 4% inflation means the value of your savings are going in reverse...

When you need to generate a temp file while writing scripts (typically used to store intermediate results), consider using "mktemp" utility which is bundled with most Unix/Linux based distros.

Enjoy your (currently 3632) from :awesome:
