By now you have probably heard that Google spys on your growing habits, searches, traveling locations, app usage and more. Google is so pervasive that it’s almost impossible to stop from being “the product” that gets sold and resold right? Wrong!
Now there are great Google alternatives.
Duckduckgo has setup a great guide that you can follow to help free yourself from the clutches of Google.
If you updated WordPress like I did and found the most irritating, horrific editor you’ve ever seen or used, follow these instructions to get the old one back.
Go to your WordPress Dashboard.
Search for “Classic Editor”. (Blue Square with three white lines).
Install and Active. Back to business.
PS: If you are having trouble with these directions, here’s a video I found on YouTube.
Plug Joystick USB and Trackball USB cables into the Pi
A new corporate/government effort is underway to silence news that isn’t to their liking. It’s called the “Trust Project”. Ten media companies are creating a new system that can label a news source as trustworthy. Just like the Twitter blue-badge, the label is bestowed up the fortunate and taken away from anyone that disagrees with their establishment views. In other words, the alternative media was a little too effective in getting news out that conflicted with their propaganda. Despite their rigged polls and fake news, Hillary Clinton was not elected. Oops, they can’t let that happen again.
Media companies should not be trusted to verify their own trustworthiness. A collection of independent sources should validate. is NOT TO BE TRUSTED. It is the first step toward shutting down free speech. A “trust logo” will be a symbol of establishment propaganda.
Yet another industry-shaking paradigm shift is underway: a theater subscription service that lets users see as many theater movies as they wish for only $9.95. How does this work? The user pays MoviePass $9.95 a month and for each movie they attend, the company reimburses the theater. Unless there is some genius way to make the accounting of this work, MoviePass is doomed to fail. Each movie costs an average of $8.65. If a user sees more than one movie, MoviePass is losing money. Is this just an future IPO scam where investors pump cash in and the founder walks away rich? Do they plan on raising subscription costs? What do you think?
Chinese authorities have ordered Bitcoin exchanges in Beijing and Shanghai to submit their plans to close operations by September 20. The county is citing financial risks associated with criminal activity, including drug trafficking, money laundering, smuggling and unauthorized fundraising activity.
Will different countries follow suit? Can bitcoin grow without a huge country like China? Will people lose confidence? The value of the bitcoin has swung wildly in the last month after the bitcoin split from $2,500/bitcoin to $5,000. Very risky investment IMO.
