So now multiple private companies can go and find out if you have Grindr App installed or not, great for analytical companies to have hold onto information on a person’s sexuality.
You see the slippery slop you are on?
Metadata tells a lot about a person and a mobile service provider has no right to sell their user’s privacy for quick bucks. Especially this is opt-out basis.

I went and read what T-Mobile is pitching, it is still individual user’s complete app usage pattern.
With other data brokers available to purchase data from, you get identified quick.
Say if I am Amazon and buy this lot of data, in theory I can match app usage pattern with individual user.
See, now T-mobile has helped handed over a user’s complete app usage history.
I think the story quality of Discovery is going down hill quick.
What I meant targeted is more of say location data for all the users, or some other metadata. Data residency won’t really protect against it.

This type of data residency deal is meaningless, the source code is still derive from the China team unless they completely severed ties.
That only prevents a mass ex filtration of data but it doesn’t prevent targeted espionage if needed. The same applies to Apple, Microsoft or Amazon having to operate separate infrastructure in China.
The overseas team probably does not have complete visibility on the source code and who really can garentee nothing can be inserted to leave a back-door.

I’m don’t get how Twitter is folding so hard, Elon is not an owner yet until the deal is closed and it is not a sure deal given how Elon reportedly backing out.
I won’t be letting Elon to speak with the staff until the deal is closed, at this rate the uncertainty and fear brought on by his comments is hurting Twitter so hard.
So throwing out billions of Windows machines and call it a day?

Can’t the apartment manager if they are on site refuse further Sono’s deliveries?

They don’t mean the same thing, licensing restrictions this time cause overseas licensor gets to monotize the content in their region.

That is what many of us are asking Netflix to not cancel shows and end them with cliff hangers.
Yet they spend the money in one that has an ending and parts of the show was really dragged out to fill the time.

I am really interested how the commercial deal work. So it is basically an embedded stadia view on Capcom’s website.
How are they planning to count the conversion rate to pay Google? Or just outright paying per amount of streams?
The withings software is quite nice, but Fitbit tracking is far more accurate last time with I had both the watch from each vendor.

The flaw in RCS is too many stakeholders with competing interest, instead of a pure software on the internet it is trying very much so making a SMS 2.0.
I admire doing it in an open standard, I’m just not sure what are the incentives for operators and users to use it.

The good thing is soon users will be able to decide that for themselves.

Probably even more so because just the talk of unionizing made them give a rise and they are not selling clothes in department stores the pay is still very low consider their margin.
It is a 2.3 trillion company surely can afford $22 ph.

Have to give it to Michael Dell for his financial wizardry. That deal with EMC was crazy enough and now spinning out Vmware from hit will net him a lot of cash and broadcom stocks.
Vmware licensing is like vampires sucking all the blood out of the budget tho.
