The death of Do Not Track is the reason why I don’t give a damn about ad publishers and their moaning about adblockers and other efforts to thwart them. We tried being nice to you and you were jerks about it. No sympathy.
h”We burn more people than anyone else!” He said gleefully.
I avoid like the plague giving anyone my phone number or Social Security/Social Insurance number. If a company demands I include one, I’ll give them a fake number whenever possible. It doesn’t work in all situations but I try to limit it as much as I can.
The growth of the internet was unimaginable by these guys 50 years ago just like we can’t imagine what it will be like 50 years from now but it sure as hell isn’t likely to be “unequivocally wonderful, open, collaborative, trustworthy or ethical.”
I don’t think CC is “too powerful” but it is a conversation worth having. A lot of people aren’t happy with where the Creative Cloud is going and how locked in many of us are to it.
I’m less and less likely to post to Instagram, if only because of the ridiculous amount of advertising I see when I use the app. I’ve just recently re-upped my Pro membership on Flickr and will likely check out some of these other services Chartier mentions.
Even though many are “cookie cutter”, I still love the look and feel of a “true” Irish pub.
Really interesting article based on a SXSW interview with Douglas Rushkoff.
I love most forms of car and motorcycle racing and NASCAR’s Daytona 500 is a race like no other. A bucket list item for me is to be in a race car for high-speed laps of that speedway.
The letter that leads this story is heartbreaking.
When I first saw this video, I was sure it was fake.
This is weirdly fascinating.
This might be the oddest story you read all day.
This could get ugly.
It might be a “smart TV” but any manufacturer who did this would be stupid.
This is an interesting, if admittedly first world, dilemma.
They’re kind of making her point for her.
You know what’s involved but seeing the work that goes into creating one of these things gives a better appreciation of the effort.
I no longer do any kind of work that requires me to use these kinds of apps but it’s good to see CorelDRAW back on the Mac.
Gonna be interesting.
These kinds of stories about the infrastructure so much of our modern world relies on are always fascinating.
No real surprise but still a PITA for users who favor those browsers.
This is just electioneering and won’t amount to anything but I thought it odd that, when asked why she didn’t include Apple in her original post, the senator said, “No reason.” Apple is larger than all of the other companies she originally mentioned.
I’m a big fan of Skylum (formerly Macphun) and am testing out their AirMagic software for drone pilots. I like Luminar 2 and the “performance improvements” will be very welcome. It can be slow on my Mac.
I can’t wait to see this movie.
Such a bizarre, sad story about something many of knew and loved as kids and many still love as adults.
I loved vinyl and, if I had the space, I might even have a record player with some old albums lying around to play every now and then.
It’s a shame this had to be “controversial” in the first place.
While I don’t loathe it as much as the writer, I certainly never look forward to any kind of self-checkout.
Honest question — is any other company, especially in tech, as transparent as Apple with regards to its Asian supply chain?
