@mva If Apple (or Google or Facebook or Microsoft) hadn't collected this data in the first place, it wouldn't have attracted the alphabet agencies to reap those spoils.

So the first to blame here are really the corporations. Yes, FBIs, CIAs, FSBs and SBUs of the world are famous power-hungry assholes. But the corps are great enablers of that.


I love tech companies upset about the fact they aren't allow to spy on people in some places anymore.

"It's our business model!" Okay, well have you considered it's a bad one?


Now, if this isn't the coolest thing you've seen today then you need to close the refrigerator. It's an animation of how bridges were built in Central Europe in the middle-ages.


This is the most #Russian thing I have heard of this week. Perhaps even this month.

Difficult/dangerous issue? ✅
Space exploration involved? ✅

Don't 👏🏻 connect 👏🏻 your 👏🏻 TV 👏🏻 to 👏🏻 the 👏🏻 Internet!

Ever! Buy something - a Roku, an Apple TV, a PS4, an Xbox, a Raspberry Pi running Plex, *anything* - and use that as your video source. Don't ever use the TV's own Internet-connect apps. First, they're guaranteed to spy on you. All sly TV brands do this as far as I can tell. Second, they *suck* in comparison with what you get from a set top box.

Just don't do it!

Are you afraid of the extend/extinguish phase of Microsoft's acquisition of Bethesda/Obsidian?

I follow a person that:
Talks about how society is bad and needs to stop monopolies. Says that people need to use more open source and stop with the closed source stuff.

Sells software on Apple platform.
Instead of contributing to existing software prefers to reinvent the wheel recreating a lot of existing tools just to say they are the author.

Ahh the hypocrisy....

Hey people,

I'm wondering, how does other projects manage to get such cool icons? Do they pay some designer to do it for them?
