hollywoodn’t get it: streaming, on demand, paid content: NO interstitial commercials or back to usenet we travel

Filed under: AdNoyances — Sagacious Himself @ 12:31 am

“Fast forwarding has been disabled for this programming”

That’s nice.  I’ll be fetching this programming from usenet where I can fast forward through whatever I please in the programming I have purchased

.

Hulu “plus” commercials:  $8/mo

budget usenet:  $3.33/mo

.

It’s not the cost, hollywoodn’t, it is the lack of respect or functionality.

Amazon Prime video included in $99/yr Prime membership needs netflix supplementation.   “Oh let’s watch that,” only to find it is not prime included.  After two of those exclamations you’ve paid for netflix.

Interestingly amazon prime video DOES DELIVER hd bitrate more often than netflix (where netflix is never). “But netflix offers superHD,” yeah that’s right up there with “as many dvds as [we’ll allow] you want“.  I don’t do wifi.  I have verybroadband with an SLA.  There is no excuse for substandard bitrates but that’s what netflix offers.  Roku is platform limited to 3.5 Mbps.

Netflix poor bandwidth delivery : As many as you want is a different kind of netflx delivery throttling.  Netflix tries reinventing peering to further not-deliver quality.

It’s not a secret how much bandwidth an stb or stream head consumes when you control all the premises hardware.

Amazon does occasionally cripple amazon FireTV stb with locked bootloaders so I hope you had the foresight to purchase a few extra prior to lockdown.

Amazon FireTV makes the same false-free claims as roku land:

third party ad rendering IS NOT synonymous with free:

ads = COST

Amazon would prefer users not root enable FireOS devices to protect their sovereign privacy with such fantastic tools as UnbelovedHosts, MinMinGuard, or AdAway.

FireOS has the immediate advantage of zero google crApps.  See, bobby, android is better without google crApps — and does function well.

Hiding root?  Gee, let’s all name the binary and user app identically.  stop that silliness.  Randomized naming and a modicum of effort in the user ui.   … to start.

 

For the mentally impaired:  I am not advocating piracy.  Yes, I advocate fetching content from usenet, but only for licensed content, to ensure quality bitrate and nonhorrible compression. Pay for content and receive contracted quality without litigation.

Budget usenet adds a mere $3.33 to one’s monthly entertainment licensing costs while assuring no playback glitches, actual onDemand, quality (bitrate, compression), zero interstitial commercials.

chromium adblock extensions too unwieldly to control in Incognito Mode

Filed under: AdNoyances — Sagacious Himself @ 6:26 pm

AdBlock, https://getadblock.com/pay/
Ad”block”plus, https://adblockplus.org/en/acceptable-ads?NEVER_acceptable=TRUE

Both AdBlock and Ad”block”plus spawn a new window for a new tab in not-incognito to edit options.  AdBlock resource list similarly spawns a new window for a new tab to show resource list.

problem with adblock in chrome incognito oh too bad now fight with another window of tabs

oh would you like to save a draft?

oh would you like to save an outlook webmail draft too bad resource viewing is such masochism

lowes rape policy private no more

Filed under: AdNoyances — Sagacious Himself @ 9:13 am

Privacy?  It’s far too nebulous to define much like slavery or genocide.  Everyone should have a unique or personal understanding and be happy?

Lowes policy on in store rape while wifi employed is about as private as simlar abuse of [potential] customers:

make use of african kettle? color propriety and the high pot

[revisiting]

adblock extensions killing the scammers’ interweb unlimited source of victims fantasy?

hopefully

This screenshot taken with “open blockable items” pane of AdBlock Edge expanded upward to show all blocked items on the “content” article deriding adblocking:

cerfing the interweb without adblocking is more foolishly self damaging than it is naive must adblock always interweb

(ajax.google temporarily enabled while attempting to register: blocked by default.  Before whitelisted a suggestion is sent to webmaster encouraging locally caching tools to avoid privacy raping visitors.  Google, an ad platform, hopes their tools are loaded as third party modules all the better to track and repeatedly rape you dearies)

 

Not that there was much to read of the ‘article’.  Without adblocking enabled the page had not finished rendering in well over 12 minutes.  It hanged on s.ytimg and googletagservices.  Not adblocking foolish?  My oh my yes.  How did I not adblock while avoiding injury?  Alternative connectivity.

Make use of is not interested in new registrations that fail to provide them raping privacy revenue:

http://www.makeuseof.com/wp-login.php?action=register

^ disabled.   get edjumakated:  no-www.org

 

The blathering is concentrated in the unqualified declaration:

sites are paid for displaying them either per-click or, in some cases, via a flat monthly fee

 

And HOW precisely does that function?  The author prefers willful ignorance as do most insisting they have presented an argument (they haven’t).

“you owe me”

No, I don’t.

Article relies on self evident falsehood:

but without ad revenues, there’d be nothing to read

Wrong!  How did the interweb funciton prior to the first scumbag advertiser?  (not all advertisers are scumbags)

Yes, johnny, the interweb predated privacy raping!  There weren’t hoards of imbeciles.  As with joining any other society one approaches with hesitation and respect as it is joining. One participates respectfully with civility.  Forum moderation is nearly dead with selfish indifference cancer.

 

Free lunch is real.

I have something to offer to those who sought it.  I expect nothing in return.

  • My interweb participation is CHARITABLE.
  • I came to GIVE.
  • I shall continue to GIVE.
  • Obviously I shall not give as much or even at all if/when I am not self sufficient.
  • I must care for myself and mine first.  This is NOT greed.
  • Inordinate self interest is greed.
  • Self interest is duty to myself and God.

 

If you do not want your content in the public sphere………  drum roll ……. don’t put it in the public sphere.  Protect it with BasicAuth (do use your interweb search skills) or other PayWall.

“but I want my site in the public sphere to be seen and complain when people see it because it is a not-public thing I am offering in public [insert other inanity]”

 

So close to illumination…

It’s obvious that without revenue to support quality content, that content will disappear

Yes, I covered that already; See above outline:  “If/when I am not self sufficient”.

Also true

the world will be worse off because of it

Yes, when there are fewer charitable people building the interest the world will be ‘worse off’.  It certainly isn’t better with profiteering by raping privacy rogues.

 

No honest exchange to be had there on their question:

If advertisements disappeared from all sites today, this is what would become of the web. [?]

It would improve in quality and dignity.  There would be free market to select winners for micropayment systems.  Much like the content I purchase now through a variety of platforms.  When it stops being of value to me I discontinue purchasing.  Sites will no longer treat viewers as chattle; raping privacy will cease.  Society will codify laws creating just consequence for raping privacy all the more lurid when the victims are minor — already unable to contract.

The irrational- and willfully ignorant are not exclusively proponents of privacy raping they are occasionally consumers

if people who want to see quality content on the web at no charge

People with righteous expectations of consuming content produced by the interweb charitable?  They’re not irrational.  Is the author creatively describing content piracy?

Piracy: not providing just compensation.

In the proper interweb model of charity there is no piracy concern.

If in the author’s construction there are no longer third party ads on the interweb…  when this obvious obviousnesses of logic is intentionally ignored…. ah, yes, we having a blathering ‘article’ insisting adblocking is evil and the interweb has always been such a way that it had never been ad nausea.

How about another bite of irrationalberry pie?

So long as Google and Microsoft remain powerful companies with great influence over how people view the Internet, advertising will remain the primary means of generating revenue.

 

They are?  That is some masterful control.  Care to explain how that works?  A clockwork orange setup while we sleep?

The irlogic is ilrefutable!

 say no to blocking ads [and embrace endless privacy rape]

Someone needs to take a refresher course on the mechanics of power.   adBlock is my NO to assent to be profoundly violated.

I am not a pirate.

microsoft PrivAd ™ willfully ignorant of prime profiteering: privacy rape

Filed under: AdNoyances — Sagacious Himself @ 5:48 pm
Tags: ,

This kludge is not much unlike the angry black racist’s paid interest physics.  Adding 39 dimensions … silliness.

http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/people/saikat/paper-hotnets09-guha-privad.html

It’s in the user best interest to inflict ads on herself?

Privad represents an argument that highly-targeted practical online advertising, and good user-privacy are not mutually exclusive.

Yes, they absolutely are.  Targeting requires privacy rape.

The key distinction, however, is that in Privad the task of profiling the user, and targeting and serving ads is outsourced to a client running on the user’s computer.

Which is all fine until ads are requested.

The dealer is the key to privacy in Privad. All communication between the client and the broker is proxied anonymously by the dealer. The dealer is run by an organization that is itself untrusted with user profile information, but is nevertheless unlikely to collude with the broker.

The ChairmanObama tactic: redefine away problems.  Why is dealer untrusted?  Surely that matters with sacrosanct privacy? “Unlikely” to behave untrustworthily for profit?  No, they’d never create their own moral universe for even more profit at your expense.

since all messages between the client and broker are encrypted

NSA metadata anyone?

 Unfortunately, when clients are hidden from the broker, the broker is less able to protect itself against click-fraud. Therefore, the dealer also helps the broker defend against click-fraud, but in a way that preserves user privacy.

phase I: deal
phase II: mrumphmumble
phase III: profit!

Shared key crypto?  Before paying for “cloud” file services boasting industry thisnthat encryption one need ask, “Can my content be decrypted under valid subpoena?”.  If yes then your content is not usefully encrypted.

.

microsoft lip serves ads with rhetorical privacy as changing nothing incurs no cost

.

  1. user privacy is important
  2. we “protect” user privacy (when it doesn’t interfere with any profit)
  3. our privacy policy is subject to change at any time without any notice

“Feel” better yet?

adblocking on Fire TV is easy.

"not-free" is not a kind of free: it is the opposite of free

a roku channel with a pre-roll ad is NOT-free.


I use a roku for ONE subscription I purchased prior to roku.  Unforuntanely roku takes a HUGE slice of profit from the provider.  When the kinks are removed from the xbMC hd video plug-in on the server side I'll shelf the roku.

But have it off by default. “AdBlock Edge”, an add-on which does just that, is what I replaced ABP with just now. I am just saying, if you want AdBlock Plus to be the first choice for people who like having ads blocked, it should do what it says all the time..

stupid paypal policy willy nilly LIMITED flagging changes unintended consquences: expect sharp rise in identity theft and related crimes

Filed under: AdNoyances — Sagacious Himself @ 6:59 am

The decision tree used by both paypal and google wallet to flag an account as LIMITED requiring subsequent verification of your identity have several absurd assumptions and the ‘shocker’:   law-breakers will continue to break laws no matter how many more laws are passed on the subject

Those people will do what they want to do.  Add Limited + ID verification “plan” will cause casual ID borrowing or motivate outright ID theft (and concomitant financial/credit theft)

 

Paypal ‘agreement’ continues to be summarizable as:

https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/marketingweb?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=ua/UserAgreement_full&locale.x=en_US

paypal is the sole arbiter of truth [especially when it’s not and you waive all your rights or otherwise agree to the same]

 

Verification seems easy, https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=p/acc/seal-CA-unconfirmed-outside

But the arbitrary ‘logic’ for flagging an account LIMITED adds  user security risk and needless annoyance to casual user who doesn’t want a paypal account

then you’ll find paypal asking for documents security experts say to NEVER provide via the interweb, fax, email.  Don’t do it: don’t send paypa or other interweb site l scans of your passport, don’t send  paypal or other interweb site scans of your state id.

burning bald eagle at both ends

More silly ID laws passed also assume everyone in the creation/verification chain are well adjusted, honorable people.  Law breakers will find other law breakers in this chain and then ENTIRE INTENT of system FOILED AGAIN.

The Impact of Creating a Colorful Network by Cloteal L Horne

(because white studies would be racist)

 I looked around the room and made eye contact with the other two minorities in the room

no hint of racism..

 I was impressed that a major network would make it their propagative to diversify.

And fantastic black grammar.

We live in a mosaic nation comprised of individuals from distinct backgrounds. The time has come for our stages and screens to both recognize and reflect this.

oh grand, more separatism

As young artist entering into the industry and person of color

Gotta have that color plug to end racism.

outlook.com antispam adds whitelist weight to email addresses used at “social” datamining sites.  Are you wise enough to avoid the folly of volunteering time to ad server profiling?  Then outlook.com might punish you for sending email.

yahoo privacy policy: viewing equals consent? adblocking only opt out option?

Filed under: AdNoyances,open source,privacy — Sagacious Himself @ 9:34 pm

I see… or rather opt not to see via adblocking [AdAway]

Yahoo! does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.

English LBE Security Master for android now available (outside market) formerly LBE Privacy Guard

edit 2014:  XPrivacy Pro is still the most mature solution.  Another XPosed Framework plug-in is worth observing in development: DonkeyGuard — as it will allow user choice spoofing of requested data.  Also consider installing:  UnbelovedHosts and many other defim plug-ins, LuckyPatcher (remove adware only), Llama (or Tasker), LightFlow (or Xposed led options).  [I do neither encourage- nor condone piracy].   “But my android device… selinux|bootloader”… yeah it’s time to consider buying out of contract, too, for user-liberty (oppo [no cdma]).

 

edit 2013: better yet:  XPrivacy extension of XPosed framework for android

 

edit: a MUCH better, more elegant solution is the PDroid patch

.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1357056

Ask your ROM builder to bake-in PDroid.  There are PDroid aditions and versions for ICS.  It will likely be ported to EVERY subsequent versison of android.

 

MY hardware, MY data: MY terms.

 

If you had been in contact with LBE developers prior to this release you should have received notification directly from LBE. 😉

English LBE Privacy Guard has received MUCH much more than a face lift.

Download English LBE Security Master [lite]

Version mismatch?  English LBE Security Master lite is version 2.0.x whereas Chinese LBE Security Master is version 2.1.x

Hopefully LBE has the wisdom to sell the full version outside the market, also.  Secure information shared with google [stored on google] is NOT secure.

.

There is an rom alternative to LBE Security Master [lite] by WhisperCore:

http://whispersys.com/permissions.html

WhisperCore provides selective persmissions in a way that doesn’t take apps by surprise. Instead of denying access to resources, each permission revoked by a user creates a “private resource” for that application. So if an application requests the phone’s unique identifier, it will still get an identifier, but it will be a privacy-protected identifier generated specifically for that application. A different application with the same revoked permission would get a separate identifier, and an application without the revoked permission would get the real phone identifier.

Unfortunately WhisperSystem’s WhisperCore  does not support ALL android phones like LBE.

.

Another alternative to LBE Security Master LITE is pffmod

http://code.google.com/p/pffmod/

.

Ultimate permissions management, spoof ID / fake data, is possible with cyanogenmod

http://review.cyanogenmod.com/#change,5677

Apply a little peer pressure to effect a change in favor of the hardware/data owners!

new English version of LBE Privacy Guard available Halloween? Renamed to LBE Security Master

Filed under: AdNoyances,android,circumvention,Justice,privacy — Sagacious Himself @ 1:49 pm

edit 2014:  better alternatives to LBE

edit: a MUCH better, more elegant solution is the PDroid patch

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1357056

Ask your ROM builder to bake-in PDroid.  There are PDroid aditions and versions for ICS.  It will likely be ported to EVERY subsequent versison of android.  MY hardware, MY data: MY terms.

English LBE Security Master lite from LBE now available

————————————

I have been using the new LBE Security Master in Chinese.  With the exception of a few features all the functionality can be intuited based on prior app experience.

[insert: LBE PG backgrounder]

New to this version is a name change.  This better than fantastic app has been dubbed LBE Security Master.  The Guard icon is a dial whereas the Master icon is a shield.  Go figure.

While denial of permissions is an option I much prefer playing integrity challenged applications at their own game: data poisoning.

I had been working on a screen shot based tutorial but it seems that will be of little value for the Chinese-only upgrade as the English version of LBE Security Master (version 2.1.x) will be available Halloween or possibly All Souls Day.  Chinese APK.

I am hoping in addition to unique id spoofing [UDID] LBE Privacy Guard data services will also be able to spoof MAC addresses and spoof non-radio IMEI/MEID.

New must-have features include:

  • new permissions visualization,
  • bandwidth monitoring per app (a starred feature req of DroidWall)
  • battery preservation,
  • communication filtering [some twits label this sms firewall]
  • fractional functionality for non-root users

Missing is finer grained control of permissions.   Some permissions such as send SMS, receive SMS are grouped into one tickbox.  GPS location and network location are deemed one permission.   ‘Get TASKS’, a permission abused by google maps, seems to be MIA as well.

The new Chinese version of LBE Privacy Guard is fully functional under Cyanogenmod 7: good news for users of non-stable releases of CM7 who are unable to use the current English version. While garbage collection frequency has been a blight for some using cm4dx the dev cm4dx-gb has almost entirely addressed the problem; LBE Security Master can increase garbage collection frequency at user request.

Keep an eye on the LBE Security Master change log and LBE dev blog for more speculation fodder.  Though big fans of QQ they are not big on XMPP.

google flash block detector?

Filed under: AdNoyances — Sagacious Himself @ 8:45 pm

http://flashblockdetector.googlecode.com/hg/fbd.js

or

http://flashblockdetector.googlecode.com/

http://code.google.com/p/flashblockdetector/ or experience a demo

This library does not interfere with, or try to counteract, any Flash blocking extensions. It simply tells you whether a blocker is active on your page. Note: if the user has a Flash blocker but has whitelisted your site, the library will (correctly) say that Flash is not blocked.

Because some Flash blockers are not instantaneous, this library inserts some dummy Flash objects into the page and then waits for up to 5 seconds to see if they get blocked.

yeah, and now it’s blocked with AdBlock Plus.  Spying over.

pages load less slowly with more crap blocked.  google, the champion of text ads, takes notices and deploys flashblock detector?

why?

yahoo mail URL to create filters

Filed under: AdNoyances — Sagacious Himself @ 1:12 pm

having difficulty creating webmail filters?  Thanks to NEO?

you betcha especially if picking “mail options” from the options dropdown results in a blank ‘options’ neo-tab

( /neo/options/s/mailoptions?.inNeo=true )

 

after logging in change the tab path to:

/ym/Filters

or the parent legacy menu

/ym/opitons

Amazon selling privacy-rape? STOP allowing amazon abuse! Trade not privacy for cash. “discount” kindle is not a bargain and AdMash is more evil

Filed under: AdNoyances,BULLSHIT — Sagacious Himself @ 10:29 am
Tags: , , , ,

Who is insane enough to “sell” their privacy for $25?

Twenty five WHOLE dollars off a kindle to tolerate malware? *

NO

NO

NOOO

Here’s how it works. AdMash will show you two different screensavers and then ask you to vote for the one you like best.

NEITHER!  I like zero ads.  I see zero ads.  I am certainly not paying to see ads! WTH

adservers are “privacy rape”.  That’s the best turn of phrase I’ve yet seen.

How many of the feckless  hoard will give [waste] their time helping the evil adservers craft eviler ads with Amazon AdMash?

A malware powered kindle ought be ZERO out of pocket cost AND CONTINUE paying the user at the very least for the high privacy loss cost. AND in n-ambiguous terms should explain the actual cost of using such evil software

No statement on privacy assurance?  even on not voting tablets?

Where’s the “I changed my mind here’s twenty five dollars turn off this evil amazon crapware” option?

Amazon giving away “free” software?  That’s incentivising DRM installation.  And a secure platform too.  Why it was minutes before that aviary genocide rio game was cracked, liberated of its drm wrapper.  DRM encourages piracy and amuses crackers.  My android device has few drm teeth not kicked in and those remaining bite nothing.  I sync my life through exchange and tinker with funambol.  I don’t trust ad purveyors with my privacy: I don’t trust google and now I have reason to distrust amazon who has so well served me as a retailer.

[insert SIP call me widget here]

too bad wp hosted blogs are widget hostile.  Let’s have a wp wrapper for sip call widgets!

aDav, the CalDav android client, or hypermatix caldav sync for android

Filed under: AdNoyances,AYBABTG — Sagacious Himself @ 9:13 am
Tags: ,

AOSP

Is not the second character: Open?  Nah, it must be Oligarchy.  Maybe it’s Outlivedusefulness.  Offensive?  Outrageous?

Google’s intellectual dishonesty is circumvented with aDav:

http://wiki.davical.org/w/ACal

davical is similarly a yahoo calendar solution for ubuntu lucid — as evolution transmogrifies the https:// protocol into non-functional caldav:// .  Evolution also transmogrifies whatever into webcal

See also: http://wiki.davical.org/w/CalDAV_Clients/Calendar_Sync_for_Android

or Hypermatix CalDav sync

http://www.hypermatix.com/products/calendar_sync_for_android

however hypermatix caldav sync has a hard limit of one alarm per event (unlike yahoo calendar).. d’oh droidx.  But as hell would have frozen over before I shoveled my life into google this is definitely a step in the right non-exchange direction.  Sure, exchange is a fun alternative to google oligarchy.  Microsoft, where is your android dot edu offering? [this persona has a chinese wall]

and yahoo calendar help
