You can opt-out of Facebook.

You can opt-out of Google.

But you can't opt-out of being in public spaces. And you shouldn't have to.

I suspect that a lot of people are mistaking OEM guidance for hardware requirements when it comes to #windows11

For instance, I highly doubt that Microsoft will refuse to let you install Windows 11 unless you have a specific web cam or something like that, it'd be a terrible business move on Microsoft's part, plus how would they even know that Windows is being installed on a machine of a certain size?

That and the source that people are getting this from even reads like a guide for OEMs

COVID-19 has often brought conversations about data privacy into the spotlight.

Just like contact tracing apps, there is a right way and a wrong way to create a vaccine passport.

Be wary of your government doing it the wrong way.

It amazes me that there's still a recently updated Signal client for Windows Phone, it's open source too, the FOSS community keeps old tech alive!

media companies saying that they lost billions in profit bc people pirated their product instead of buying it has the same energy as the people who get preoccupied with the billions of people who don't exist bc of birth control. You're making up stuff to get mad about

Instagram for kids is a truly bad idea, also in regards to privacy: vox.com/recode/22385570/instag

If your kids need to communicate online, better make them familiar with privacy-friendly alternatives! tutanota.com/blog/posts/how-to

Looks like YouTube has decided to mess with another creator because they dared talk about a YouTube alternative, this is absurd, as I've been saying over the past few days we need to get off YouTube
