>'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.

Within some years privacy will be an outdated concept.


Privacy is already an outdated concept.


The brain isn't a wi-fi transmitter. You need to have physical electrodes attached in order to do this.

as a Buddhist, fuck the McMindfulness corporate appropriation

it was created as a liberating practice in a society where people voluntarily shared food with wandering ascetics, so twisting it into a stress-reduction technique for wage slaves living in the individualistic neoliberal hell is especially evil


Not all religions are reactionar-


people using something for reactionary means doesn't make the teaching itself reactionary

if anything, Marxism itself has been twisted many times

does the ability to emulate apks throught google chrome still work?

authy has the monopoly on desktop OTP clients


also fuck winauth
why can't the stupid program use whatever stupid .json file that Aegis and andOTP use

I will learn how to implement this in Java.

Its a decentralized peertube-like streaming platform. BUT they say they can pay creators in crypto. How? Where is that money coming from without ads? Something doesn't add up


In browser mining?


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.


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.


>I think they don't re-encode videos, that saves them a lot of costs compared to other video-sites.
This is actually an option for PeerTube instances but most don't use it.


>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.

I currently own a Ryzen 7 2700X and won't upgrade until AMD releases the very last line for the socket, do you guys think Zen3+ will still be used on AM4 or will they move up to AM5? Pic unrelated

should ask /g/, plenty of consumerists who upgrade already-good cpus that don't need to be upgraded
