And Yet ANOTHER Reason Androids Suck

January 24th, 2012 | 2 Comments | Posted in Android Suckage, webstuff, WTF

For those of you that have Androids and are at the beginning of your service contract… you’re screwed

The Web giant announced Tuesday that it plans to follow the activities of users across nearly all of its ubiquitous sites, including YouTube, Gmail and its leading search engine.

Google has already been collecting some of this information. But for the first time, it is combining data across its Web sites to stitch together a fuller portrait of users.

Consumers won’t be able to opt out of the changes, which take effect March 1. And experts say the policy shift will invite greater scrutiny from federal regulators of the company’s privacy and competitive practices.

So, if you don’t want Google knowing everything that you do, change your search engine and change your phone.

A user signing up for Gmail, for instance, might never have imagined that the content of his or her messages could affect the experience on seemingly unrelated Web sites such as YouTube.

“Google’s new privacy announcement is frustrating and a little frightening,” said Common Sense Media chief executive James Steyer. “Even if the company believes that tracking users across all platforms improves their services, consumers should still have the option to opt out — especially the kids and teens who are avid users of YouTube, Gmail and Google Search.”

Might I recommend an iPhone.

Glad They Have Time for This

I guess their economy must be fixed because apparently one of our California state Senators has time for this kind of bullshit.

Lowe’s Home Improvement has found itself facing a backlash after the retail giant pulled ads from a reality show about American Muslims.

The retail giant stopped advertising on TLC’s “All-American Muslim” after a conservative group known as the Florida Family Association complained, saying the program was “propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda’s clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values.”

And what is said Democrat from California doing in response to Lowe’s pulling the ads?  Why, he wants a boycott and ‘Legislative action’ which to my mind means that Congress will pull out some trumped up BS so they can grandstand

Calling the Lowe’s decision “un-American” and “naked religious bigotry,” Sen. Ted Lieu, D-Torrance, told The Associated Press he would also consider legislative action if Lowe’s doesn’t apologize to Muslims and reinstate its ads. The senator sent a letter outlining his complaints to Lowe’s Chief Executive Officer Robert A. Niblock.

“The show is about what it’s like to be a Muslim in America, and it touches on the discrimination they sometimes face. And that kind of discrimination is exactly what’s happening here with Lowe’s,” Lieu said.

Honestly, I find the entire idea of anti-discrimination laws to be absurd.  How many people have not gotten a job and were told “We found someone more qualified” when what they really meant was “Your too old/ blonde/ tall/ short/ whatever…”  The idea of law as behavior modification, to me, goes against the entire idea of freedom.

If someone wants to be a bigot, let them.  I hope they post a big freaking sign outside of their business saying “No _______ allowed!” because then I would know NOT to spend my money there.  Now, those same bigots have just taken it underground.

As far as Lowe’s goes, I can understand them not wanting to advertise on a show that might be a controversial subject, and that is their RIGHT to pick where they want their ad money to go.  For Lieu to say that he will try some sort of legislative action for Lowe’s spending their money how they see fit is not only reprehensible but shows exactly how the leftist mindset goes – You have no rights except what they want you to have.

I have a few more tools to buy for the shop so I think I’ll head over to Lowe’s today even though they are farther away than Home Depot.

**Update**

Tam pointed out correctly that he is a California state Senator, not a US one.  Corrections applied. I will punish myself by going to the range later.

Oh Dear Lord!

I’m not sure if I should applaud their ability to figure a new way to part fools from their money or be horrified by how far back they just took the gun movement “See! They all think they’re ninjas and zombie killers!!!  We need more gun control to stop these nuts!”

“Safe/Ninja/Jedi Fire Control”… seriously???

Tam links to a group that has taken the Mall Ninja code to heart (picture Chumly from ‘Pawn Stars” all tacticaled out) and also to an  article that is fairly old, but gives the origin of the “Mall Ninja”.

A brief quote, but you really should RTWT

I have never had to deal with bolt action sniper rifles, these punk’s tastes run to Ack-Ack guns, and I have taken away 4 stens that they probably stole from Grandaddy’s closet, a Thompson hacked short on both ends,a and more pistol-gripped AK clones than i care to count. These kids want blood, and since they will have to go through me to shed any in my mall, I am constantly doging near misses and ricochets, I have taken to doubling up on my regular regimen on Body armor, as you probaly knwo.

Yeah, there’s a lot more where that came from.

Thankfully, my coffee is still brewing so I didn’t end up spewing it all over the keyboard.
