>'Apple is eating our lunch': Google employees admit in lawsuit that the company made it nearly impossible for users to keep their location private
>Google made it nearly impossible for users to keep their location private, according to newly unredacted court documents.
>Google continued collecting location data even when users turned off various location-sharing settings, made popular privacy settings harder to find, and even pressured LG and other phone makers into hiding settings precisely because users liked them, according to the documents.
>When Google tested versions of its Android operating system that made privacy settings easier to find, users took advantage of them, which Google viewed as a "problem," according to the documents.
>Google also tried to convince smartphone makers to hide location settings "through active misrepresentations and/or concealment, suppression, or omission of facts"
>Google employees appeared to recognize that users were frustrated by the company's aggressive data collection practices, potentially hurting its business.
>"Fail #2: *I* should be able to get *my* location on *my* phone without sharing that information with Google," one employee said.
>"This may be how Apple is eating our lunch," they added, saying Apple was "much more likely" to let users take advantage of location-based apps and services on their phones without sharing the data with Apple.

Are there any laptops on the market without hardware backdoors like Intel Management Engine or AMD Platform Security Processor? There's a group working on building a Power ISA based laptop (since IBM made Power ISA open source in 2019.) This is the only modern hardware that I know of without a backdoor, but it's not in production yet. https://www.powerpc-notebook.org/faq/

Why the fuck is no one here talking about FreeNode fucking imploding on itself? They are banning whole channels on the network for even mentioning the name "Libera." The glowies got control of freenode, fyi, so, if you are on that network I would suggest leaving.

I think they don't re-encode videos, that saves them a lot of costs compared to other video-sites. but it's on you to upload a video with the right video-codec. And you can't change the resolution unless the video-creator used a video-container with multiple resolutions.

It's based on a trade-off.

 No.8770

Odysee is in a lot of trouble with the Securities and Exchange Commission right now for providing speculative commodities for user buy-in. This sort of government scrutiny is what's in store for all services attempting to shoehorn crypto into their social media alternatives.

>shoehorn crypto into their social media alternatives
Not related, but I love how Bitcoin and Bitcoin-clones are called crypto. The word "crypto" has connotations that you can't see everything, ie. that it's a scam.
