  7. Do we have any members down under? I believe we used to. Well Australia has me on the fence this week. One one side they made what I consider a bad call, and have weakened Australians rights to privacy to support fear mongering (Assistance and Access Bill 2018) by making it easier for law enforcement and government to crack your encryption and access private user data. On the other they have decided that e-voting is a bad call and have turned it down. I think it is easier to manipulate voting per computer than is is paper ballots shipped in armored cars like we used to do back in the day. So here are some links on the subjects, you can find your own if you wish, there is a lot on this new Assistance and Access Bill 2018.

  10. To begin with you should have a look at this article to understand what kind of data is being processed and that even if it does not use you name it can be traced to you. Once you understand the issue/threat, the follow up article used for the title will show you how to help protect yourself with the primary phone types. They do state that the article is based on the US, but do not make the mistake of thinking that whatever country you live in, you are safe.: Your Apps Know Where You Were Last Night, and They’re Not Keeping It Secret https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/12/10/business/location-data-privacy-apps.html How to Stop Apps From Tracking Your Location https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/10/technology/prevent-location-data-sharing.html

  12. I wonder if PewDiePie knows who he is because this will not help his cause any...
  13. This whole fighting for YouTube ratings seems rather silly to me (I know, some make money), but I am old school. But this also shows the dangers of everything being on the Internet and why you should separate your network into one for your PC's and one for everything else.
