The US Tech Antitrust bollocks

Google
– know everything you click and sell that data to anyone. Google do everything they can, including changing web standards, to track you.

Facebook
– know everything you click and sell that data to anyone. Zuckerberg is a fucking lizard and they try to embed their tracking pixels everywhere.

Apple
– know what you do on their devices and do NOT sell that data to anyone. Using Apple products is optional.

Amazon
– know what you buy on their site, know what you look at on their site and do NOT sell that data to anyone. Using Amazon is optional.

Compare the first two to the last two

Pichai and Zuckerberg make their money – LOTS of money – through exploitation and data selling

Bezos and Cook do not

Why can I figure this out this distinction yet American senators cannot?

USA? WTF??

BBC again

First line of the article:

There has been a remarkable global decline in the number of children women are having, say researchers. BBC

Why not say “There has been a remarkable global decline in the number of babies being born, say researchers.” or would that upset some super fragile snowflake somewhere?

BBC knuckle draggers

Meanwhile, the BBC declined to give a figure on the number of complaints it has received about Top Gear being pulled from the schedules due to the ongoing investigation.

And yet the BBC are all too keen to say at other times that they answer to the TV Tax license payers when someone says anything that offends even a single person.

The BBC are a joke.

Hersheys = Stupid

“It is important for Hershey to protect its trademark rights and to prevent consumers from being confused or misled when they see a product name or product package that is confusingly similar to a Hershey name or trade dress,” Beckman said.

“Hershey has always vigorously protected its brands and will continue to do so whenever we believe that others have infringed on these valuable intellectual assets.”

said the Hershey mouth when asked why they were claiming that England’s Yorkie chocolate bars should also be forbidden, because they are too similar in name to Hershey’s York Peppermint Patties, even though they have different packaging and a different shape, the lawsuit says. DNAInfo

Maybe it’s just me, but I would never ever confuse these.

(and that “Low Fat” gimmick? They are 150 cals, 17% fat, 81% carbs, 2% protein so that’s hardly healthy is it? fatsecret)

Russell Brand is a

He told Evan Davis: “I don’t want to look at a graph, mate. I ain’t got time for a bloody graph… This is the kind of stuff that people like you use to confuse people like us.”

i100

So Russell Brand is too stupid to understand a graph? Or does he just act like a window-licker to try and garner votes for the “revolution”?

Nope. The simple fact is that this guy is a phag*.

Believe him and you need locking up as well.

fuck facebook

The cycling club I’m in has an active facebook page. So I thought what the hell, join fb just to be able to post there. Did the registration and used my name at this domain as the email. The confirmation email did not come through. Tried a few times, nothing. Changed it to my live.com email – again nothing. So requested to join the cycling club page, added 2 friends, contacted Support about it and left it at that. This morning – neither of those emails work – fb say they have no record of those emails. So facebook have looked at my details, somehow determined I am a spammer and shut me down. That’s sort of amusing and pretty annoying. But I won’t be trying again.

My fake ID still works perfectly and STILL gets weekly or more emails from facebook asking if I know these girls.

This is not a question. It’s filler, garbage, useless, vague, pointless, nonsense.
If you want information ask for it.
