Doesn't it suffer from the same issue as Graphene i.e. it's supported in very few devices that are hard to find and/or expensive?

Privacy on the internet in an inherently retarded and infeasible concept. For most people, privacy does not matter, and it is a good thing. Since its very inception the internet and its communication protocols were never designed with privacy in mind, because humans don't live a private lifestyle. Do you schizos wrap yourself in tinfoil clothing and hide every inch of your skin and use a voice changer when talking to other people IRL? Do you tunnel every single conversation one on one so no other person can overhear you?

You are already monitored on a daily basis, and humans have been in general for thousands of years now, and it is a general way of information exchange and communication among people. Not everyone can live a hermit lifestyle encrypting every bit of traffic that leaves their basement.

The upcoming integration of cloud based services and the IoT among machines, along with increased automation will help more people who don't care about retarded non issues like muh data mining and those super fucking great cooming sites you searched for the other month. Maybe you neckbeards should try leaving your house more often and realize that technology exists to serve social needs and thus information IS required in the process. Using busted up, old, Thinkpads and then cutting off hardware wiring does not make you any more special or 'secure'. Secure from what? Who exactly are you trying to hide from? Motherfucker I can guarantee that most of these self proclaimed 'privacy enthusiasts' are friendless losers, so nobody would care either way if anything happened to you.

The average human lifespan is around 80 years now, all that time that could be spent being open and social with people, living a carefree life, and instead you spend it on some vague concept of being 'le based privacy chad hackerman', someone who is so non-existent, even online, that the people of your own forums and imageboards won't recognize you.

You won't look back at all those years wasted on ricing up your machines and encrypting your TOR mails for gazillionth time, just in case of that tiny off chance that a glowie decided to read your smut collection that particular day. Though you might remember the day you had a good laugh with your friends on dickcord or other 'privacy nightmares'.

Unless you're an Illegalist, in which case please carry on.

I don’t really care about data tracking by itself, but how it’s used. at least if China takes my data it will be contributed to something useful like AI instead of “marketing business analytics” or whatever faggot bullshit research field small dicked ex-jocks are coming up with these days.

I'd rather keep 48*x. 44.1 doesn't divide from standard time bases, higher multiples less so. It was born of a terrible compromise between fatuous Beethoven and an easy to use form factor. Also, production routinely occurs at 48*x, usually 96 or 192. The downmix to 44.1*x will introduce artifacts that didn't need to be introduced.

Not really. They seem to be about 5dB more sensitive at high frequencies than their parents' cohort. It's hard to find any research outside the nominal 20-20k band of human hearing.

I remember reading this was only the case for movies etc.? And not for music, which has been produced at 44.1*x for years but is being released in 96+ like in movies for hi-res because higher numbers = better marketing.
