In my view the GDPR failed because it did not mandate a users right to clearly say NO to all this data snooping. The rule still seems to be "If you want to use my SW you have to accept me snooping, I just have to ask you to note that I do these things - even if it's not relevant to the SW operation"

No, see this: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/11/19/ico_washington_post/

Just because people break the law, doesn't mean that that the law's what pepole are doing (just that it's ineffectively enforced).
