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??

Zerofasting – mindful bollocks

From an unrelated chat, I happened across this site: https://www.zerofasting.com/

Scroll down and you see this gem

Fasting is a mindful approach to eating

Read that again.

I’ll rephrase:
Not eating is a mindful approach to eating

Want to know about mindful eating?
Healthline
Mindful
Harvard
Psychology Today
Health.com
Headspace
There are many many more genuinely decent guides and information about Mindfulness and Mindful eating. Use the links above and those other good sources.

But do not fall for the exploitative Zerofasting.
Just because it’s an app doesn’t make it right.

The God Squad

“The Vatican has been closed to visitors for a month and the 83-year-old pontiff – beloved for breaking stuffy customs and mingling with the people – has complained of feeling “caged”.
Link

But GOD sent this.
It is part of his ‘mysterious ways’

“Since the pilgrims can no longer come to us, we invite ourselves into their homes,” Sanctuary of Lourdes rector Olivier Ribadeau Dumas said.”

But surely GOD would protect the faithful?

“Vatican City is protecting the Pope from coronavirus, but keeping employees at work. Link

Good fucking grief.

Stop believing in sky wizards and the obscenely rich paedophile loving Catholic church.

Or God.

How much reality do you need to smash into your face before you realise that religion is a pathetic lie?

Christian-Schiffer is offended.

Text: “The Santa Hat on vscode insiders and pushing of religion is very offensive to me, additionally xmas has cost millions of Jews their lives over the centuries, yet even if that was not the case, pushing religious symbols as part of a product update is completely unacceptable. Please remove it immediately and make it your top priority. To me this is almost equally offensive as a swastika.”

Posting as a FYI should you ever encounter this … organism.

EDIT:

reddit has some thoughts

Tim Berners-Lee

Headline from The Verge:

“Tim Berners-Lee launches Google and Facebook-backed plan to fix the web”

The two companies who are doing the most to damage the web and destroy privacy want to “fix” it.

What The Actual Fuck?

Tim Berners-Lee has now hopped into bed with Larry, Sergey and the lizard.

There is no hope.

Jack Dorsey is a slimeball

Register at twitter
One
I opted to use Email. Note that it says “instead”.

I verified
Two

Then I logged in, clicked around seeing what different icons did.
Then
Three

I did nothing suspicious. My computer did nothing suspicious.
This is Jack Dorsey being a total slimeball by initially saying “You can use email” and then denying you access unless you give him your phone number.

Scummy tactic.
