As You Wish Edition
- Apple has stopped listening to its customers. (Tech Crunch)
When did they last do that, anyway?
- Google is back to playing Notice me, senpai! with the DOJ. (ZDNet)
Not to mention the DOJ's European counterparts. (CNet)
- Can Australia's government be trusted to sort out its encryption policy? No. (ZDNet)
- Japan's spat with South Korea isn't cooling down. (ZDNet)
- Ooblets is the latest Epixclusive, but with an added twist: The developers are telling customers to shut up and keep their money if they don't like it. (One Angry Gamer)
The trailer looks... Kind of annoying, frankly. But maybe that's just because I started out annoyed.
- Alphabet has more money than Apple. (CNet)
Why? How? Where did it come from? Stop clicking on ads, you idiots, it's a trap!
This is, I suspect, why Google is rushing to make obviously bad changes to Chrome: Nothing matters but keeping the ad revenue flowing. If that means new protocols that speed up the internet and make it better for everyone, great, they'll give their work away for free. If it means taking actions that are clearly harmful, well, fuck you then. You're not the customer, you're the product.
Moo like a cow, product.

Also, it should go without saying that when that update goes in, everyone should be default opted out and asked if they want to opt in, but I don't expect Apple to do that.
