Reader comment #1: "You’ve been warned and you still carry a smartphone?"

Reader comment #2: "Don’t forget most newer cars have a cell modem in the head units these days that can not be turned off. They use it for things like onstar, traffic update features in gps, and over the air firmware updates. Plus your car has a built in microphone for hands free. Hack the head unit, endless undetectable wiretap in your private space. Just the cell tower connection logs from the modem tracks all movements and business records don’t require individual warrants. Dealers won’t tell you where the modem is or How to remove it. The ones I have hunted down can still be unplugged physically in the head units but it’s unacceptable."

If cars could be tracked like this wouldn't car theft be history?

I would have thought that this would be something insurance companies would be interested in.

Boo-hoo, cry me a river FB.

[url]https://9to5mac.com/2020/07/30/facebook-raises-concerns-that-ios-14-could-harm-its-ad-business/[/url] [quote]iOS 14 introduces a range of features to let users control which data each app can access, including clipboard notifications and also an option to disable tracking between apps. These features are already causing problems for some developers, and Facebook in particular is concerned about its ad business ahead of these changes.

Facebook Chief Financial Officer David Wehner told CNBC today that the company fears that iOS 14 will have a negative impact on how Facebook operates its advertisements. As the company’s revenue comes in large part from advertisements, any attempt to hinder such practice will hurt Facebook’s business.[/quote]

I recently became aware that [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Safari_(web_browser)#Intentionally_limiting_ad_blockers_and_tracking_protection]since 2018 Apple prevents the use of efficient ad and tracking blockers (like uBlockOrigin f.i.) in their Safari browser[/url].

Rightly so : users don't have the right to decide how many ads they will see on their computers, this is a prerogative of the hard- and software manufacturers [noparse]:-([/noparse]

I suppose the next evolution will be that the devices, the OS and the programs will be in charge of which sites you browse and what data you work with.
