The point you seem to have missed is that all the sites that exist based on the revenue from adverts are crap and should be let to die. The web would be much cleaner.

... why do people put up with billion dollar multi-national corporations telling them when, and how, they are allowed to play the music they have bought a license to listen to?
Hmm, maybe because you bought a licence and not the song?.
You may want to actually read the licensing terms before paying. You're going to be in for a big surpise: you agree to follow the license and only listen to your tune on approved devices, maybe only in specific countries or only on specific days
That makes a good case that there needs to be some sort of standard for how it should behave that all cars must obey.
Save the passengers, f... the rest. It's my car, it's supposed to protect me. What's so hard to understand?
Let's (all) be frank :P You buy a car in order to get you safe to your destination and damn the others.
Sorry to burst your bubble but, at least in my home country, it's all down to competition, not average wealth and wages. Honest to God competition, down to cutting cables/stealing equipment.
Allowing more companies to offer their connectivity over the same lines would increase it.
WTF? Dude, competition is supposed to decrease the price, not increase it. Oh, sorry, you must be working for one of those companies.
I'd say we need to add 2FA to this biometrics mumbojumbo. Send a SMS to the second phone then enter the ginormous passphrase into the first one.
What could be more fun?
Or we can just dispense with all this bull and get back to using the phone as, you know, a phone?
You should NOT have to create/use a Google (email) Account to use an Android phone.
And you don't have to. Just skip the prompts, root the phone, install FDroid and/or sideload the apps you want and you're good to go.
Just don't ask for a painelss experience syncronizing your calendar with your own server.
I have no problem with smart TVs, Fridges etc as long as either it the manufacturer offer security updates for say 5 years after purchase or that any online connectivity can be disabled and the item still be usable.
Security update for a fridge? You mean something like a new padlock on the door?
WTF is your fridge doing on the net? Downloading your meat & veggies? Last I heard you are supposed to eat those not stream them.
for instance care to guess who "gismeteo.com" are...?
This site is owned and operated by MapMakers Group Ltd. (further referred to as “MapMakers”).
Do I get a prize?
It was really hard work, clicking on the Agreement link at the bottom of the page.
And another copy & paste into Ducky gave me: MapMakers Group Ltd. is the leader in development of meteorological software for processing and delivery of meteorological information in Russia
Down vote me all you want but it's still a legit question. If have PDFs on website that is only about a products that are only sold in Canada would I still have abide by the GDPR if I have people looking at my web stie from the EU, even if my web site was not intend to do business in the EU?
As lonng as you don't process personal data of EU citizens you don't have to comply with GDPR.
Your phone is *your* phone so it is personal information. Grabbing location/... data is taking personal information. Did you consent to this ?
Yes, you did consent. Remember that first setup after unboxing your phone? When you had to accept all those agreements in order to be able to use your property?
Oh, you didn't read them, just pressed next, next, next, agree.
Did you even notice there are a lot of links to websites that have another shitload of legalese explaining why you must agree to sell your firstborn in order to use the phone?
Alternatively "takes my information and may deliberately pass it on to dodgy organisations like mafia, NSA, CIA, FSB or similar outposts of organised crime.
So, Google, Facebook & the like, Apple, Microsoft, your bank, your ISP, your utility providers and the list goes on.
That equates to £3 a month (Less than the cost of a single album). I listen to the service almost all day at work and also whilst doing service calls in my van..
£3 + internet access + maybe going over you data plan, say around £20 per month or £240 per year. How many CDs/song could you BUY with these money?
Once the link to the person's name has been removed, only "relevant" information is returned, when searching for this person.
I don't know about you but I do find relevant that somebody I'm interested in as a business partner or otherwise has a criminal record, even as a juvenile. It gives you an idea about what kind of person that someone is.
Not really, they didn't plan to apply the same rules for anyone anywhere. Fate of european countries would have been different according to their prejudice. Subduing does not necessarily mean unifying.
And how's that's different from the current EU?
Oh, wait, Germany IS rulling EU.
if two cars cost the same... one ran like a tank but looked ugly, or a sleek model that does a better than good enough job... which do you choose?
The tank, thank you very much. I'm no snowflake to give a shit about what other snowflakes think about my car as long as it is comfy and protects me from others.
