Yet they pump out huge plumes of personal guff to the servers of surveillance capitalists. Do they not realise they have a choice about this and that, if they were to choose differently, the snoopers of officialdom would have to do the work themselves, at a much slower, more targeted rate?
It might also mean that companies such as Sonos would think twice about jumping on the slurping bandwagon. (I'm a GenX kid before you ask.)
He's a Lord, therefore a Member of the upper house of Parliament.
Yes, "It's a Heartache". Which my childhood self always misheard as "It's a Hard Egg".
For teenagers, in my experience, buying tat is very important and whether or not a PC is available to use matters not one whit. They even do their school homework on their goddamn iPhones (which must be like wallpapering the hallway via the letterbox.)
You also know it is not distributing funds to persons unknown behind your back.
Workers and drones are not the same thing.
Never tried an automatic but upvote for the 40 everywhere. My experience matches this exactly.
Why would you want to go back?
Well what did you expect?
Keeping plenty of fibre in your cabinet is a great way to avoid a bout of gaseous elbow.
I wish they were Prog Rock bands.
Au contraire. Showing a man as a baffoon is perfectly realisic. Cromulent even.
Ah, you've spotted the agenda.
You didn't look hard enough. American sport and music provide particularly rich pickings.
Also Gene Roddenberry?
Where have you really been Clive?
Those people must be the Prime Movers.
Hey Dabbsy, given things you've mentioned before I'm surprised you didn't use the name as an excuse to send people here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUlolYWQYGQ
When It All Comes Down
The Prisoner is where we are. Brazil is where we are heading.
See icon. No, I'm not happy about it either.
uvern ements don'tseem to carerelish that people's lives are being recorded to a level that is damned frightening."
Oh, that protestant thing again.
That's listed in the manual's glossary as 'doublethink'.
Respond with "Do you want the sale?" Company policy is binding on employees of the company, not customers.
Why would they? It's so much cheaper to have corporations do this stuff, thereby lowering taxes & shrinking the state while simultaneously tightening their grip on the populace.
I use this:
What are the typical boot times of these shoes?
These people are not very bright. I once told one that I didn't sign up to anything proposed by cold callers. He kept insisting for a couple of minutes that he was not a cold caller.
Back on topic, telling a tech support scammer that I'm not using Windows usually elicits the hopeful response of "a Mac?" Simply answering "No." tends to cause an immediate call termination.
All your face (book, time, etc) are belong to us?
How many do you own?
The Fuchsia's so bright I gotta wear shades.
Technician, we want you to build a component
For each of our workers, to be with them always,
At all time watch closely, so we can keep track of
Their actions, their interests, their morals, their time out.
Some musak to maim them, some fear to contain them.
Policy will judge them, brute forces degrade them.
Practical behaviour, the cleanser, the saviour.
A private vocation has no sense of nation.
The maintenance of power can be so fulfilling,
Just as long as all the slaves are willing.

No. Direct action is how they justify the need to impose this kind of shit.
Taunton is the county town of Somerset but it is no city.
And don't forget a sprinkling of freshly ground placebo.
They're printing words on page 3 now?
Because they're always half asleep?
Met many wrestlers have you?
So you favour May rather than Clarkson?
If you're using a Chromebook then it's likely you're not interested in privacy anyway.
I have an IP PBX. Callers have the option of entering a pre-shared code to talk to me, entering zero to leave a message, or hanging up. Any messages are immediately emailed. Unless they choose option one (only available to friends and family) I never hear the phone ring. This arrangement allows communications from officialdom, doctors, commercial organisations with which I have a relationship, etc. It also handles robo-callers rather well.
Wherever someone is described as former anything they will be ignored.
Svagdricka is readily available from supermarkets in Sweden.
Probably not. It's more likely that me and the other two will just uninstall Chrome.
So safety always trumps freedom. Presumably eight out of ten cats who were never allowed to express a preference would agree this should be so? There are so many suitable icons that I couldn't decide which was most appropriate for this post.
