"""Max Schrems, the lawyer who successfully sued Facebook for privacy violations against European citizens, has scored another victory, this time against Google: In a landmark court ruling, Austria's data protection authority has found that Google Analytics is illegal to use on European websites.
Google Analytics illegal in Europe

When the Privacy Shield legislation was invalidated in 2020, this had far-reaching consequences for US online services operating in Europe: They were no longer allowed to transfer data of European citizens to the US as this would make data of European citizens vulnerable to American mass surveillance - a clear violation of the European GDPR.

However, the Silicon Valley tech industry largely ignored the ruling. NOYB says:

"While this (=invalidation of Privacy Shield) sent shock waves through the tech industry, US providers and EU data exporters have largely ignored the case. Just like Microsoft, Facebook or Amazon, Google has relied on so-called "Standard Contract Clauses" to continue data transfers and calm its European business partners."

Now, the Austrian Data Protection Authority strikes the same chord as the European court when declaring Privacy Shield as invalid: It has decided that the use of Google Analytics violates the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Google is "subject to surveillance by US intelligence services and can be ordered to disclose data of European citizens to them". Therefore, the data of European citizens may not be transferred across the Atlantic.

I recently came with a work of analyzing a website on my job. I saw they were using Google Analytics, but had a "cookie privacy settings" in wich i could "disable" that feature of sending "anonymous" data to Google and saving their cookie on my browser. Well, I tested that and checked if that really works.
Guess what? It really did not saved any cookies, but still were sending my goddamn yiffy data to Google, every page i accessed.

> Documents Reveal Advanced AI Tools Google Is Selling to Israel
> Google employees, who have been kept in the dark about the “Nimbus” AI project, have concerns about Israeli human rights abuses.

""" Training materials reviewed by The Intercept confirm that Google is offering advanced artificial intelligence and machine-learning capabilities to the Israeli government through its controversial “Project Nimbus” contract. The Israeli Finance Ministry announced the contract in April 2021 for a $1.2 billion cloud computing system jointly built by Google and Amazon. “The project is intended to provide the government, the defense establishment and others with an all-encompassing cloud solution,” the ministry said in its announcement.

Google engineers have spent the time since worrying whether their efforts would inadvertently bolster the ongoing Israeli military occupation of Palestine. In 2021, both Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International formally accused Israel of committing crimes against humanity by maintaining an apartheid system against Palestinians. While the Israeli military and security services already rely on a sophisticated system of computerized surveillance, the sophistication of Google’s data analysis offerings could worsen the increasingly data-driven military occupation.

According to a trove of training documents and videos obtained by The Intercept through a publicly accessible educational portal intended for Nimbus users, Google is providing the Israeli government with the full suite of machine-learning and AI tools available through Google Cloud Platform. While they provide no specifics as to how Nimbus will be used, the documents indicate that the new cloud would give Israel capabilities for facial detection, automated image categorization, object tracking, and even sentiment analysis that claims to assess the emotional content of pictures, speech, and writing. The Nimbus materials referenced agency-specific trainings available to government personnel through the online learning service Coursera, citing the Ministry of Defense as an example.

>Time to switch to m.2
SATA already does the job and I'm not a speedfag so why?


Well technically you can pick up transfers on SATA cables if you place an antenna next to the computer via the RF noise generated by the transfer and lack of RF shielding on modern computers.


there's about a bajillion ways to exfiltrate data over the air from a 'puter. set up a shortwave radio and have a listen. keyboards are noisy even if they're built-in (laptop)


bro wtf. i just found out my old thinkpad i use every day only has room for an m.2, first time i ever heard of such a storage device, now im seeing leftypol post about m.2


Good i'm a laptop user and don't have any SATA cable lol

Keeping up to date silicon fab is over for the west
China owns the high end fabs all of it now


China’s semiconductor industry is still driven by western capital


Not so much now zoom zoom


I just realized, do you even know what capital is?

in my network there is problem
and that problem is cloudflare
they log everybody's visits
and they make it hard to tor

throw cloudflare down the well
so my network can be free
we must make scraping easy
then we have a big party

in my network there is problem
and that problem is the GOOG
they take everybody data
and they give it to the spooks

I currently use Gmail for my email(s). I should probably change over from Gmail, right, for security reasons? It's not that I have anything interesting or worth while in my emails, just thought it would be nice to make it more difficult for surveillance capitalism to work.

So basically I'm asking:
What are some secure and safe email providers (if they exist)?
What email provider do you guys use?

ps. I'm not surer advanced with tech so dont ask me to "throttle the ip of the dingle drive until you set up the proxy cum email server with the soyjak harddrive tor sleeper agent software" because I'm not willing to do that shit.

Riseup has been infiltrated and cooperated with law enforcement before and this is documented.


mailing lists are supposed to be public, so there's no point in encrypting them

Holy fuck I cringed so hard why are you even here?

ITT: retarded UI trends that make no sense whatsoever

I'll start with one of the worst:
> automatically hiding scroll bars
What kind of brain dead imbecile thought this was a good idea, I will never understand. I regularly have to move the mouse a little just to have the scroll bar reappear momentarily so I can see where I am in a document, it's so fucking frustrating.

>when you realize that all of the worst user interface trends popular today were already experimented with at Xerox in the '70s and '80s and rejected for being bad ideas
Hegel was right…


Lack of donut menus.

When you use a mouse, it is much easier to hit icons at the screen edges compared to somewhere else on the screen, and corners are the best. Corners are basically like icons with infinite landing space. A donut menu works like this: If your mouse is not at a screen edge, the menu becomes visible as you hold the right mouse button. If you don't move your mouse, you are in the hole of the donut and nothing happens. You can move your mouse in a direction to hit this or that function on the menu, and it's really the angle that does the selection, not how far you go. So this works fast like the stuff on the screen edges.

So you're basically describing something like this?


Haven't played that title (looks like Turok 2), so I can't answer for sure. What is important is that you don't rotate the items to select and also that their position doesn't get rejigged based on which weapons you have and have not, so everything quickly becomes muscle memory. If that's how it works, it's a proper example.


Yup, that is indeed how it works.


Just found out about "invention clauses". In the US there are about 10 states which have 3 conditions: they own everything you name that was made on company time, using company equipment, or using trade secrets taught to you by the company.
Every other state does not include any conditions. They can claim everything you make, even if it's completely unrelated to your job. YouTube videos? Tutorials? Game streaming? A web comic? Literally anything. It's theirs.
They don't even have to make exemptions for collaborative work. They can take a portion of anything you contribute to if they want.


File: 1657929497283.jpg (37.07 KB, 335x330, Egregious.jpg)

Wow, what a shitty move.
Are there no legal ways to prevent that ?


Try as hard as you can to make them not know it was you personally who made the stuff.
Use a VPN or TOR for outside services hosting your shit, this includes your own servers.
Do not make any content on company machines that can be accessed easily or remotely. (But do work on your projects on company time lmao, just keep in mind to watch your outgoing connections.)
Do not associate yourself with the accounts you'll be hosting your stuff on, if they keep time logs it would suck if the company found out about them.

Generally be a sneaky pain in the ass.
As for trade secrets, I dunno lol.

Also, try to move out if you got the resources. If not, the next best thing would be moving to a different state.


The wonders of IP law.


this is totally not slavery btw

Corporations want to turn browsers into operating systems so badly dude.


doesn’t webassembly already allow this


> in the browser
Which one? And why python?


already exists in chromeOS


Currently the sole defacto wasm compiler is emscripten, that is part of the llvm toolchain and priotizes C and C++ support. Cythons latest version only supports python2 and it wouldn't be unusual for the python3 interpreter to expect access to some os resources. They are probably working on a full integration of python into llvm (subsets already exist https://numba.pydata.org/).


In the future, everything is Chrome.
