Permissionless data slurping: Why Google's latest bombshell matters

Tree
Mushroom

Re: 'ER' Yes Privacy Expectations Here

Gurgle is so evil, you should block scripts from them, Doubleclick, Googletagservicees.com, google-analytics.com, gstatic.com, youtube.com, Googleapis.com. Cut off their revenue. Your pages will load faster and you have fewer dancing, singing monkeys. Probably safer, too.

Cell phones only need location services when you are lost. All the above will save battery power, too. If your main reason to surf is that you enjoy ads, then ignore this advice. NoScript and Remove This Permanently work wonders with Palemoon or Firefox browsers.

Leaky-by-design location services show outsourced security won't ever work

Location

To find it, you have to search for "location", but it can be turned off in <settings>. Then it is not supposed to detect or record it. You can just use Google or GPS only. On the other hand, the cell towers know when you are near them.

Do not ever use FACEBUTT or you will have no privacy.

If it is in a database, they already have it

Whether it is in your Equine-fux credit report or your child's report card, it is already known to your government masters and probably their enemy's files include it as well. All your Face-butt walls and comments, all your Gurgle searches and Gmail entries are also "out there" to be slurped by NSA, the Chi-coms, GHQ and the Russian FSB. Like Clapper, they all lie about having this.

What to do? You can 1) stop all this email and social media stuff amd disconnect or 2) enter multiple totally new and different identities for yourself to confuse the snoopers. In other words, deny them the data or put out an overwhelming amount of crap.

Facebutt = your face + Suckerberg's butt

It is very hard to be unrecognizable by the major companies. To get more privacy I use Pale Moon browser which allows customization like Firefox. Much more private than Apple, Microsoft, Google and Facebook would like. Do not use a Google product on my computer at all. Block all beacons with Remove it Permanently. use DuckDuckGo Lite for searching, Use Ublock Origin to block the all So-So media. Other add-ons may help - BluHell Firewall and Disconnect will make web faster and stop tracking. Better Privacy will stop some Super-Cookies from showing who you are. Advantages of extreme privacy include few ads. Disadvantages are cannot watch video on the computer.

Can't watch YouTube on the computer. But when watch it through connected TIVO, but gives great big picture on my big screen tv.

I may be a paranoid. It is none of their business what I do. You can block their butts, though.

China gives America its underwater drone back – with a warning

Tree

Free trade and right of passage.

The reason US warships pass through international shipping channels is to enforce the right of civilian cargo shipping to use these waters without interference. This is for the various peoples of large and small powers to potentially live a more prosperous life. China's actions are meant to enforce that country's control over this shipping. The Chinese are already making a claim on fish and other seafood. Our current leadership is OK with that. Let us see what the next administration does.

US House okays making internet tax exemptions permanent

Tree
Go

Pros and cons

In the U.S., federal government does not raise funds through general sales taxes, but most states and a few localities make it a major source of funds. Pro: it provides an incentive for state and local governments to hold taxes down. Con: It unfairly favors the central govenment and also certain forms of distribution. Another way Amazon is subsidized. The "book rate" or "media mail" postal rates are exceedingly low and should be raised to the standard parcel rates.

Dell computers bundled with backdoor that blurts hardware fingerprint to websites

Re: At least the Windows 10 operating system is not phoning home...

Who would think that Michael Dell and Bill Gates would act as pirates? - Stealing your private info that is none of their business. I heard they both despise piracy. It's only when their own stuff is being stolen that they are against piracy.

Gates also is behind some of the collections of data about your children to be used by users who you do not know even though you do not want the information to be shared. If that stuff is in the "cloud" it can likely be accessed by the worst kind of people, such as the Commies, Musselmen and even Goooogle.

Microsoft now awfully pushy with Windows 10 on Win 7, 8 PCs – Reg readers hit back

Black Helicopters

this is MY computer

I paid good money for this computer and even paid for Windows 7. It does not belong to the evil Microsoft, nor Gurgle. When they try to find out all about me, who else gets this information? My computer's camera has black tape over the lens, Must I install other things and monitor the updates, too?

Read recently where that pretend Indian, Senator Elizabeth Warren wants her pet Consumer Protection Bureau to track our finances. I do not trust these Commies. She lied to get racial preferences by claiming to be a Cherokee. Is Microsoft helping? It is none of their business. Maybe Microsoft is passing this info to these evil people or the agency is tapping into Microsoft's data to store my private things. The government's computers are constantly being compromised by bad guys.

Hillary Clinton kept FBI files

Be more wary of what private things the government knows about you. Some in government use information about others to gain power, whether through blackmail or selective leaking of derogatory information. The government knowing about me is of more concern than a private company. A private company cannot jail me. Neither can it seize my assets like the IRS.

But the government is spying on Google, etc. Therefore, I will block Google from learning about me.

All illegal aliens are not criminals and terrorists, but some are

Allowing anyone to walk across the border is not good for the country. Deporting the law breakers is the answer. They are not solely Mexicans. Knowing how many Illegals are criminals might affect one's opinion about our current open borders policy. In 2013, ICE agents released 68,000 aliens with criminal convictions. The released illegals went on to commit new crimes. In 2014 30,558 criminal aliens that ICE knowingly released back into the community in 2014 had amassed nearly 80,000 convictions, including 250 homicides, 186 kidnappings and 373 sexual assaults. See http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/apr/14/feds-releasing-illegal-immigrant-rapists-murderers/ See the GAO's criminal aliens report.

Facepalm

Norton/Symantec Defined Bloatware

Back in the days of Windows 95, this was a good company offering a needed product to the AOL users, because Microsoft could care less about security in those days. This company decided to add all of these useless features to their antivirus so they could charge extra. It is now so complicated that nobody understands how it works at the home office. The original owners cashed in by selling it to somebody with no understanding of how it worked. They have changed it since then to find anything on your box (even Internet Explorer) that acts strangely.

The cure. Do not install it in the first place. It is a virus, malware, scamware or whatever you call it.
