Nobody should be surprised by this. Google is not specifically tracking "porn habits", it's specifically tracking ALL habits. If you're using a Google device, product, or service, Google is tracking anything and everything they can.

Google and the email app Superhuman promised to fix their privacy flaws. But surveillance remains the core of the products. That's why privacy must be baked into the foundation, argues @cwarzel. nytimes.com/2019/07/09/opinion

Loving life at the minute - Jen (my fiancé) and I are going the playlist for part of our wedding. Some awesome tracks and even better memories coming out.

What's the new favorite Paypal alternative? Feel free to persuade me.

gPodder.net is looking for a new maintainer!

If nobody comes forward by 2020, it'll be forced to shut down. Please boost to spread the word.

Note that this is the podcast-sharing website: I'm not sure about the status of the app, but I think that's still doing fine.

Has anyone snagged a Raspberry Pi 4 yet? Anyone know if/when Retro Pi will be releasing the image for number 4? I'm really interested in seeing how it performs.

@ndegruchy @Fatih19 don't fall into the all or nothing thing... every step closer to freedom is worth making, and makes it harder to do mass surveillance. Privacy and software freedom are a spectrum, it's not something you either have or don't have

I'm not sure about "complete", but fairly comprehensive anyway.

Moving into a new home with gigabit fiber. Looking at modem options. I'm not overly concerned about Wifi capabilities as I'm running a UniFi AP AC Pro. Maybe something that compliments that? Open to suggestions.

Getting ready to complete a long overdue phone hardware upgrade, at work. About to get one of these snazzy guys. mitel.com/en-us/products/devic 😀

Dear Linux Savvy Friends: As someone who has very little comfort with Linux, I'm really trying to make it a goal, this year, to break into the world of Linux. I'm currently a Windows user and have a little Linux experience with UnRaid. I've played with Ubuntu (as it has a familiar UI) before but, I've also discovered Elementary OS (looks nice as well). Which would you suggest for a good platform to start learning...or would you recommend something else? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
