Created an encrypted subdirectory on Google Drive and transferred 16GB of encrypted data using rclone.org. Access to encryption key is restricted - I have the only key! Ha!

Jean Luc is slowly building up his crew! Awesome episode and nice to see another familiar face. #StarTrekPicard

Bought this HomePod online at OWC (at a discount) and am very happy. If Apple releases a cheaper, smaller version, I’d seriously think about adding one to the collection. Have a Sonos One SL coming in a few days, too.

Trying out new Micro.blog iOS app, Gluon, by @vincent - this looks awesome!

“UK to host spyware firm accused of aiding human rights abuses” – UK hosting Facebook???? www.theguardian.com/world/202…

Incidents like this one can be prevented if only they’d stop using Facebook! www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/…

Just because you can means you should!

I have read a @ManilaBulletin @MBTechNews article proposing the same thing. This is NOT any different from adding a backdoor to encryption. Good intentions with high risk consequences to privacy. This opens a pandora’s box. mashable.com/article/a…

It’s about time! I have seen three (3) mobile app stores on a public website (Paymaya.com) - iOS, Play and Huawei. Maybe MWC2020 will see this announced officially. www.androidauthority.com/huawei-op…

PH Gov’t - what do citizens get besides Facebook surveillance?

Facebook to Philippines fiber!!!! Facebook knows that there is a strong tie between US and PH, with millions of Filipinos living in the US (studying, working, permanent residents-dual citizens). techcrunch.com/2020/02/0…

Keep kids off of Facebook!!!! ww.9to5mac.com/2020/02/0…

Guy Kawasaki’s @stevewoz interview is awesome! H=F^3, but will tweak it for my purposes to H=F^4 (Food, Fun, Family and Friends = Happiness) guykawasaki.com/steve-woz…

Dear companies, Facebook is not a universal identity service - it is a global surveillance capitalist with a broken moral compass. So, please stop forcing users to validate their identity with Facebook!!!! That is so LAZY and IRRESPONSIBLE of you.

Another reason why I don’t trust Google, even when they say that they anonymize collected data. Reminder: the collect and use YOUR data to earn! www.vice.com/en_us/art…

Living within the filter bubble is like getting incarcerated – you are secure (behind bars), but not private (they see everything you do), and worse, they dictate what you can see and do (personalized search results and timeline). Not bothered - you are with ‘friends’ anyway. :)

If you have not checked yet, check your Off-Facebook Activity and learn how invasive Facebook is. www.fastcompany.com/90457097/… (WARNING: Fast Company website has trackers)

What Facebook says and does are two different things. Don’t believe them. www.nytimes.com/2020/01/3…

CERN going open source to ditch Facebook Workplace. When are PH companies (and gov’t agencies?) going to do the same? home.cern/news/news…

Stay safe everyone! www.theguardian.com/world/202…

Avast! You think that you can follow the Zuck-playbook of doing something distasteful & unethical and just saying sorry would make it OK? That’s SORRY NOT SO SORRY. Maybe Avast does not want to be LIKED, too.

ROTFL it will break Google and Facebook, yes! This is an excuse fro Google to dodge the issue. See, blocking 3rd party cookies on Chrome is plain PR, nothing else. flip.it

Fixing privacy too soon could break the web, Chrome leader says

Today, Jan 28, is Data Privacy Day. Starting today, own your content – don’t post original content on Facebook (they monetize it and not share revenue with you). #BringBackYourBlog I use micro.blog, among other things (MB Technews, of course).

Today, Jan 28, is Data Privacy Day. It is also called Ditch Google Search for @DuckDuckGo day.

Today, Jan 28, is Data Privacy Day. Just because it is secure does not mean it is private. You lock your windows for security, but you draw your curtains for privacy. They complement each other, but they are not the same.
