So I just installed the #Mast app on iOS. I bought it a while back, but I don’t really use it.

I installed it only to find that to do pretty much anything, you need to pay MORE for “Mast Pro”. I went to the contact page to see if that’s accurate, given I’ve already paid for the app, only to find that the only contact methods listed are Twitter and Email.

Really???

Already removed that garbage from my device.

They try to censor about Dr. Li Wenliang in China, but let me tell you cloud and clear: Li Wenliang will never be forgotten. No one can erase history. His tragedy rings an alarm and his bravery shows everyone of us the value of freedom of speech. It’s worth fighting for.

A blogger found out that his wacom tablet tracked every applications he opens. He also discovered a sort of kill switch, which can stop collection of this data immediately.

Track&Graph is a quite interesting, privacy focused app for people who want to optimize or track themselves.

Lots of companies with data trackers tell you, that they need sync stuff to the cloud to do analysis of it, but for most people this should be enough, as they want to keep track of things themselves, not for others.

> The first is a principled fuck you. I don’t care whether anything materially bad will or won’t happen as a consequence of Wacom taking this data from me. I simply resent the fact that they’re doing it.

Chrome will block video ads that “people find to be particularly disruptive". Conveniently enough, YouTube ads are not so disruptive, so they most probably won't be touched.
