so Facebook's internet service will essentially turn the internet into a cable tv service, where content is controlled by facebook, and by extension, people like The Atlantic Council.

we need a new peer to peer secure internet.

We have a wetlands sanctuary nearby and swans are being run over constantly by speeding jerks.

Only thing that seems to slow people down are speedbumps but our local council doesn't want to spend the money.

This smacks of the Starforce DRM debacle.

No vendor should be installing ANYTHING that interferes with what is running on a person's computers.

What an utterly idiotic and ignorant approach by the vendor.

yet the privately owned media operated by people also owning armament, pharmaceutical and oil companies can?

what a load of horseshit...

right now, it's only through independent journalism like The Intercept and Wikileaks that we get a chance of anything truthful from 'the media'.

anyone studying history can see that the mainstream media is simply the mouthpiece for domestic and foreign policy that financially benefits their elites whilst simultaneously suppressing other sources of truthful information.

It's more likely to be used to track whistleblowers talking to journalists than anything else - following Australia's draconian laws targeting Whistleblowing and Publishing.

They mean the insipid memes that about a measly 50 000 supposedly saw ( as in they were presented to the screen, doesn't mean anyone actually noticed them ) and among which most of them ( around 80% if I remember well ) were presented AFTER the election was over.

Damn... Big success for Russia there. *sarcasm*

So the US media and politicians are going to ignore the facts.

"New Knowledge" - a US company headed by ex-NSA staff trying to sell social media monitoring software to the US Government - hires a Russian PR firm to run facebook ads (like many, many other facebook PR firms all over the world) that have nothing to do with the election - then uses this as Proof Russia was interfering with the election.....

I'd like to say I am surprised at the amount of sheer stupidity over this we are seeing - but I grew up during the Cold War and have seen how - when you mix an ignorant public with repeated lies you shape policy...

Yet another in the never ending list of reasons to globally isolate China until they learn to behave.

China is low on my list of people to be concerned about.

Stupid policies of Surveillance over Security - backdoors (now revolving backdoors) have shown to have left everyone vulnerable - and the idiots in charge just can't accept that for use to be secure, we have to be secure.

Windows 10 started bullying with the “forced” free upgrades. It’d be odd if they changed how they do things now.

It's worse. They're now trying very, very hard to bully enterprise users to moving off of Server 2016 and in to moving over to Azure services.

Just finished two on premises to cloud migrations because the accountants in charge fell for the cloud=good propaganda from the MS sales people.

What a complete load of shit azure and hosted exchange has turned out to be.

The FDA Announces Two More Antacid Recalls Due to Cancer Risk

Stop eating animal products and highly processed foods, and you'll never eat antacids again. ForksOverKnives.com

And coincidentally this lowers your cancer risks on top of not needing those antacids.

The facts of the matter are these..

1 - Russia hacks accusations were a distraction from what should have been the issue - the corruption within the DNC. From a cybersecurity standpoint the biggest threats are the US, Israel, China.. in that order. Russia's state capabilities are pretty terrible..

2 - The US holds the keys to the internet with their control of the DNS root structure. This makes EVERY country subject to their policies,and the last half century shows that the US is an absolutely terrible international actor.

What we have is a new red menace narrative - a narrative of bullshit that both justifies the increased surveillance being put into place to stop whistle-blowers, journalists, activists and people of conscience... and the obscene profits being made by the cybersecurity industrial complex.

Unfortunately people don't learn from history, or from technical people, but from the Media, which is by and large full of reporting by people who know barely anything, owned by people with a vested interest in perpetuating industry friendly narratives to line their own pockets.

Look into New Knowledge if you want to find the tip of the shitberg that is the utter nonsense we're being fed.

Faceapp...

Seriously - we have the US and allies absolutely SHAFTING our privacy with no restrictions....and with complete disregard to our safety and security..

Then we have an app that happens to be made in Russia - that uses photos.. and it's a security threat?

This new cold war BS Russia narrative is a complete crock aimed at convincing INFOSEC ingorant into justifying funnelling of taxpayer money into the new profit complex.

BBC go home - you're drunk.

...or windows Me for that matter.

when the focus of the operating system is on surveillance and data theft instead of on reliability you get SHIT reliability.

Windows as a privacy ignoring service is the stupidest idea ever to come out of Microsoft.

There's a reason MS won't make linux compatible versions of office - it really is the single suite stopping tech pros from migrating their user systems to linux - not being able to get 100% compatibility out of the alternatives.

If you like grind and spending money you will love it.

I don't spend a cent because wormhole space is lucrative enough to pay for your account in a few hours so there is no grind. I spend maybe 3 hours a week making ISK, and the rest of the time is hunting and killing.

The riskier area you play, the easier it is to play without grinding.

Eve is a game different to everything else I've played.

It's more a simulation than a game. Which has upsides and downsides.

One of the downsides is the amount of thought required. It's not easy and it's not simple, and it can be quite a bit of work sometimes.

The upside is that once you get out of the high-sec safety bubble where the unwitting are ganked by the lesser skilled players, the gameplay can be awesome, whether it's the tactics of small gang PVP, or the spectacle of the huge sov battles.

But really, where the game absolutely shines is wormhole space. No display of who is in the area, so you never know who is out there so it is all very cloak and dagger. Ambush, Counter Ambush, Counter-Counter Ambush are almost daily occurrences in my gameplay.

Even scanning your way through a wormhole chain and the sites brings risks - an enemy may not know what you're in, but they'll know you are present if they are paying attention and see your probes on scan, and the hunt begins.

High-sec is mostly boring and safe.
Null-sec has it's glorious epic moments.
Wormhole space - gloves off pure awesome.
