common failure core: no-choice? As for us we will serve the Lord BY serving children around us ourselves. YOU CAN TOO

We purchased a block of tickets to attend the   We Will Not Conform   live Fathom Event Tuesday night (July 22, 2014).  [ wewillnotconform.com , first of the blaze properties to not use defunct www host ]

People need oft be reminded of progressive’s Smoke and Mirrors tactic:

  • you are alone
  • you are powerless
  • you need be hungry
  • you need be frightened
  • you need be cold
  • you need despair

lies all lies which are only effective when you effect them in yourself.

Only through applied ignorance and defeatism can any free peoples be dispossessed of the benefits of liberty of God given freedom.

While the tools promoted by FreedomWorks are as primitive and ineffectual as F*book and Twit*dom encouraging others to weave new proximate social fabric is a great first step.

In-move Glenn instructed viewers to wield their respective smart phones to participate in ‘live’ polling via ancient sms texting narrow mindedly excluding those who have outgrown such juvescence.  Far more upsetting were the numbers of those who deemed being a TWIT was the most effective communication platform.

F*booking together assures your message is only visible to others already in agreement.  While this watered down version of time tested internets technology is a barely acceptable mode to come together initially it accomplishes nothing to show others the good works of your group.

With XMPP Texting (plus OTR) one or more Jaber IDs one can be roster member of many groups for REAL TIME coordination of needed action, REAL TIME group discussion with moderation options, REAL TIME feedback of events, well developed PubSub, fine grained grant of subscription to availability aspects.

The most glaring deficiencies of sms texting:

  • CONSTRAINED to ONE device
  • NO presence : no indication of availability to receive- or respond to messages
  • NO privacy :  OTR provides wife approved, elder-capable simple encryption to effect privacy
  • COSTLY

MeetUP allows any kind of group to simply orchestrate a namesake

….

 

logic requires rejection of common core dictum

either both and or either or logic requires rejecting the common core dictums

 

 

PRIVACY RAPE as PROFIT

 

Once… One whole brief aside by Glenn Beck in his We Will Not Conform presentation touched on Privacy Rape for Proft… essentially repeating his promise to not sell out client privacy, but more importantly hinting glancing understanding privacy sellout orders of magnitude more profitable than selling a product to people:  selling people as the product

Privacy is a right.  Privacy is NOT a commodity.  Can privacy be sold?  Yes, but so can children. Are children a commodity?  Not properly any more than is privacy a commodity.

Common core is RIFE with privacy rape of children!  for profit!

 

….

 

Would you stand when the jews in your neighborhood were rounded up on tructs by armed goons?  The bar isn’t that high.. yet.  Will you remain silent as children are corralled for no good purpose?

 

We have organized proximately to tutor children in our churches whose parents cannot afford private tutoring.  We provide this at no cost to families; not all of us are theists.  Those who may ask ‘what can I do?‘ will be asked how many minutes or hours a month can you donate to help one child or a few children?

Applying the former Boy Scouts of America child safety protocol:  No non-family adult has any alone time with a child.  In this model the internets are used to connect children with tutors.  No person off the street can signup as a tutor.  Those arrangements are made face to face in a social trust model.  Parents are encouraged to participate.  They are given tools and access to monitor on their phone or device at work or where ever.  They can retroactively monitor all interactions which are logged.  The double benefit is the child can rehash an instructional moment, additionally tutors can be peer examined or cross-train another tutor.

All tools employed are f/oss (Free Open Source Software):  interweb coursewear, internets SIP and XMPP for texting, group discussion, moderated lecture, calling, audio conferencing, video streaming, video archive, video conferencing.  A child can easily scan worksheet and source reference uploading- or emailing to ecosystem.  Some tutors are available live where others are time delayed interactions.

Tutors complete a self identifying survey to pick the best of strengths and capabilities.  This model has been adapted from tech.LDS.org .  Mormons not only seem well organized they actively self improve organizational efficiency.  While the Catholic church was first to the interweb they are mind numbingly slow to adapt the best of technologies.  Our social fabric includes the early interweb church pioneers. We have pulled some of our own respective parishes onto the interweb ahead of diocese growing internets policies.

 

importantwe have more in common than we have in difference.  Pope John Paul II derided for seeking to bring faith communities together.  Such is not an attempt to undermine the church, but to bring together all members of the Body of Christ.  Honest atheists admit the net benefit of Christianity as the Western World.  Some more interesting conversions can be had  between atheists and theists each capable of articulate precision and civility.  Other judges, surgeons, virologists, priests, investment bankers, mathematicians, CEOs, CIOs …  finely crafted reason and judgement rapidly apprehend value but one need not be such to reach common ground.

 

The common core system which is the opposite of the best the market has to offer has been field tested by the microsoft people through their prior- and ongoing

One Laptop One Child

Our ecosystem will lend the technology for the semester/school year and internets access.

Our agenda is:  The True, The Good, The Beatiful: helping each child grow in knowledge and judgement.  We teach above the requirements, we set the bar high but achievable for each child respecting the parent as the primary educator.

Our model can be easily replicated where there is a will and generous hearts.  We have invented no wheel.  We use the tools available to meet the needs of those around us.

You need not expend the same level of effort, time, or money.  YOU CAN TEACH A CHILD YOURSELF.  YOU have life experience, you have the willpower, you are here reading which means you have the livelihood to pay bills like internets access.  You have some modicum of self discipline.  You value truth.

You could even use inferior proprietary tools like horrible skype or outdated sms texting.

Optionally formalize your group with a 501(c)3 registration.  Then the infrastructure providers can offer steep or entire discounts.  Few are those unwilling to give to efforts which clearly benefit children.

In the time it took to write this post you could have written an email to someone you know with the familiarity to organize a simple version of this, including copies to your pastor or priest, and some friends who have friends with children in public school or other deficient education institutions.

 

 

..

 

Does your prospective child’s home have a TV?   Great, for about $60 a Raspberry Pi (with all cables and whatnot) can allow the child access to the internet via TV.   Or $35 if the home has all the other cables and whatnot.  On amazon a used dell core2duo box can be had for less than $150.   Internets can be provisions as plain old dial-up for less than $3/mo.  Are multiple children within a few kilometers of the church or base of volunteerism?  Ubiquity gear can share internets long range, or with special license in the 3Ghz band.  You need not buy equipment; an announcement in your church will quickly reveal all the gear you could need for keeps or on loan.  There is likely to be one lawyer in your church capable of completing a 501(c)3 application, and others willing to split the filing fees.

 

“Ugh I need step by step directions.”

  1. pray for guidance.  if atheist find a friend who has a [life] mentor or trusted giver of advice
  2. first try setting an appointment to speak with your parish technology manager
  3. if not 1 then find a mormon, and ask for guidance from a tech.lds.com adviser  (I am Roman Catholic — look to what we have in common)
  4. else search the interweb:  free tech support forum ,  ask there, be civil, patient, and meek
  5. leave a comment question here

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.

mouse craft lazy or dishonest developers? let us see what 6 fetches a desura key or disappointment.

Filed under: games — Sagacious Himself @ 9:22 am

[p.wip]

In the choose your own price adventure of game purchasing mouse craft is either ironically named (lazy developers) or wickedly (deceitful).  The cost field populating buttons for steam (blech) and desura (yay) are labeled $5:

“Give us at least at least $5.00 and receive a key to redeem the game on Desura”.

Motivational text below $5 claims at least $5 provides a steam key (implying also/either desura key).

mouse-craft.com/

mouse craft lazy or dishonest developers let us see what 5 fetches a desura key or disappointment

mouse craft buck

.

clicking either steak/desura button however pushes the donation to $9 as confirmed by the javascripting

mouse craft steam key coded to 9 and not 5

.

What will a donation of $6 fetch?  That’s a bit of a gamble on a not-networked game.  Whatever the qualifying amount it seems one is likely to receive both drm-free and keys:

mouse craft CYOPA drmfree and steam keys and desura keys

.

Multiplayer mouse craft requires SneakerVncNet: not-fun overkill for this use case.

Setup mouse craft for multiple players

  • RFC 7081 — read it, live it
  • SneakervncNet

.

sure, there are other examples of atrocious grammar, but lack of polish is not “lack” of honesty.  “If you didn’t any of them”?

if you didnt the game

.

More annoying in a different way are the roadmap prioritization sliders.  There are three sliders.  Go ahead and set the third to any value smaller than default.  Now set the second to zero.  Uh oh the third slider has increased beyond your selection. Set the second back to zero.  The other sliders move again but scaled down.  This iterative ‘game’ is reminiscent of some mousey game play.

mouse craft less than amusing sliders 1 _50pctmouse craft less than amusing sliders 2 _50pctmouse craft less than amusing sliders 3 _50pct

.

Perhaps it’s ideological?  When is a beta not a beta?  When it’s a pre-alpha?

alpha beta confusion _50pct

.

Everything is nothing and something means anything!

.

To download “beta” versions you need must register: https://crunchingkoalas.com/betaprogram/. While mouse craft developers are math impaired they expect participants to be arithmetic savvy [instead]:

basic math expectation bar set too high for developers of mouse craft

.

On the upside their games are multiplatform developed for the big 3:  linux, osx, windows.

Additional downside: zero notification form submission received.  This is yet more SLOTH from the crunching koala developers.  They’re linking to google JS; this is privacy rape for potential customers

crunching koalas sloth is privacy rape for you

.

instead CACHE what third party resources you need. STOP loading third party tools on the fly.  Pull updates to serve FIRST party. (This is Yet Another Google Tracking: privacy rape)

I wish there was a click-simple wordpress CSS solution for stroking images (solid color outline of images).  In gimp: select all, new layer, edit menu, stroke, adjust to suit, save as PNG24.

Humble Bundle did not sell the malware version of 11 bit studios games. Knowing they push malware I won’t be donating again if Humble Bundle features their products in a bundle.

Pay to be privacy rape?  Nuh uh!

“opt” out continues to be a grand abomination.  But no one would opt in…. yeah, that tells you something doesn’t it?

“Opt-out of all information collection by uninstalling the Application”

Right.  you’ll simply keep all the privacy rape acquired information and all is good?

“We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information”

LIARS!  Unless you mean you’ll keep it from third parties who have not yet purchased the illicit knowledge?

Shame on 11 bit studios

 Ask away during installation if we want to turn it on, and explain why we would want it on. 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..

Palant-logic

 If we ask users to enable this feature then most of them won’t do it

Unfortunately users won’t make the choice most profitable to Wladimir Palant which is apparently palant-unacceptable. How long until the “opt” out toggle does nothing other than visually toggle?

Unless of course ALL ADS ARE UNWANTED.   At eyeo.com they know you WANT palant-acceptable ads.  How could you not with his stellar integrity of megalomania choice-enforcement?  Eyeo.com claims 80% of ADP users like being bitch-slapped into compliance.

 

Eyeo.com has the same DEFECTIVE grasp of the English word “free”:  the COST.

PRIVACY RAPE ads are “acceptable” ads:  acceptable rape

The VERY reason to block ads is to NOT allow privacy rape by small set of third party servers.   It is NEVER acceptable to harm others for profit.

Showing third party ads IS NOT a business model.

FreedomPop free 4g is free except for the fees and evil billing practices

edit topical: solution alternative

Are you considering a secondary/portable internets access for entertainment  elsewhere?  Consider instead SickBeard as ethical usenet.  This will allow you to eliminate the cost of DVR rental at home leaving your funds to purchase LTE bandwidth while still reducing monthly  spending overall.  Do NOT enter into a contract with sprint/clear.  If clear/sprint only use Pay As You Go (if they require your social security number or the last four digits or openly declare the need for a ‘soft credit check’ you are being entered into the contractual relationship you need AVOID.).  To employ usenet ethically you must pay/license your tv/movie content through your ISP/satellite/other  amazon/netflix.  If you download from usenet without just compensation to content producers you will be ethically/legally guilty of piracy (depriving others of just wages).  You can ethically download programs from  ‘air channels’ or those you can receive with merely a tv and hd antenna when currently airing and within a few weeks of airing. Easily watch on TV device via xbmc or openelc on either root’d amazon fireTV or low cost RaspberryPi.

 

 

edit 2014:

“free”dompop has made no effort to refute these claims [here].  They have spent a pretty penny hiring web PR drones to spew hype at times “article” comments — which apparently is bean counter less costly than an ethical policy change.  Some of the cost landmines are rectified some of the time IFF customer spends inordinate time to resolve.  “free”dompop abuse will continue as only those whose time is worth little will pursue the interaction — and foolishly not in writing (on paper).  Try returning your “leased” device for a refund if for no other purpose than to new it up.  Are you charged the undisclosed $9 return processing fee?

https://www.freedompop.com/service_plan_terms.htm

“free” device with $50 or $90 refundable deposit after $5 shipping less undisclosed $8.95 return fee.

free until it’s NOT-free:

Deposit refund is time limited after which the loan becomes a purchase.

Free monthly service provides 399 megs of transfer in a 30 day cycle

once you hit 100 megs short of your monthly allowance (500 megs) “for your convenience” freedompop will charge a minimum top-up of $10.   If your prepaid credit drops to $2 you will be charged another $10 top-up.  Exceeding 500 megs per month incurs a cost per meg.

Another evil gotcha:  if in your monthly “free” cycle you do not consume 5 megs you will be charged a $0.99 penalty to remain an active client

To remain a FREE user you must use at least 5 megs EVERY month AND NOT more than 399 megs per month.  Account reactivation penalty is $20.  To avoid any fees AND recoup deposit one must send written on paper notice of cancellation. 

If you violate any third party terms which are NOT available for viewing your account might be canceled and you agree to forfeit your device deposit.  Sounds like a microsoft eula sight unseen.  The same applies to freepop terms in the paypal “sole arbiter of truth” sense.

You may opt-in to extra-spam or privacy-rape third party offers for minuscule bandwidth bonuses.  You are required to provide a valid email to receive volumes of freedompop spam.  freedompop collects a phone number in the name of fedex.

apparently freedompop users can communicate with one another via the 4g network. hmmmm

Top-up balderdash applies to pre-paid accounts as does minimum usage penalties.

I will be taking extra unmentionable precautions when I signup in a coverage area.

Please remember to send written opt-out of binding arbitration within first 30 days of signup!

You agree to allow FreedomPop to stalk you upon login to any “social” site according to their “privacy” rape policy https://www.freedompop.com/privacy.htm

We store the information that you receive from the social networking sites along with other information that we collect from you or receive about you.

..

When you access our Services using a mobile device, we may receive or collect your mobile device ID (often referred to as UDID), [[which is why all android users ought apply PDroid XPosed framework & XPrivacy]] mobile carrier, device manufacturer and phone number. We also collect information about your usage of, and activity on, our Services. We and service providers acting on our behalf, such as Google Analytics

..

to send you text messages;

..

Where permitted by law, and if you have not opted out, for telemarketing purposes;

In the acceptable use policy you agree that in the relationship only freedompop may abuse your privacy, endanger your security, send spam, perpetrate fraud, mislead others, engage in “deceptive advertising or [deceptive] communication”, collect personal information of others.

For example FreedomPop explicitly claims that there are no caps or throttling but in the above acceptable use policy: “will monitor both overall network performance and individual resource consumption to determine if any user is consuming a disproportionate amount of available resources… [reserve the right to throttle or cap]”.  Which seems especially odd for a company that charges per meg overage penalties.  FreedomPop will use the phone number they collected “only for fedex” to call you during such operations.

If you are unavailable or do not respond to FreedomPop’s attempt to contact you regarding excessive use, or if excessive use is ongoing or recurring and repeatedly having negative effects on other subscribers of the Services, then FreedomPop reserves the right to immediately restrict, suspend or terminate your access to the Broadband Service (and/or other applicable Services) without further notice

Despite your use of a $90, 8 party, FreedomPop wifi device you may not

 sell, provision, resell, rent, lend, pledge, transfer, distribute or exploit any portion of the Services or Equipment without FreedomPop’s prior written consent in each instance.

When otherwise is not an illicitly obtained phone number what is it?

When feasible, upon observation of a violation of this AUP, FreedomPop may attempt to contact you by e-mail at the e-mail address you have provided to us or otherwise to notify you of the violation

it’s free: simply give them money,  and operate amid a penalty minefield. Terms are subject to nefarious changes especially materially to financially benefit freedompop at your perilous expense.  FreedomPop seems evil.

For a similarly evil experience (with a non-refundable lower mifi fee plus outrageous “shipping” fee) consider suffering at the hands of Netzero 4g. Free netzero is 200 megs. Amusingly netzero “requires” you not MAC spoof or alter device unique identifier.  hahaha riiight PDroid XPosed framework with XPrivacy.  Netzero requires completion of third party “offers” and spam generating “opt” in activities.

If you must have mifi or 4g contract directly with ClearWire via clear.com or via an ethical reseller (not “freedom”pop). [[ClearWire now owned by Sprint]]

Himself.wordpress.com

# freedompop lies to customers, freedompop deception is rampant, freedompop dishonest practices await, behold freedompop trickery at every turn, warning freedompop evil inside, this freedompop scam continues, freedompop is a scam, freedomtrappop, freedompop rape, freedompop now has a phone scam, the wifi phones for freedompop make verizon spying seem pleasant

free 4g from “free”dompop?  How gullible are you?  Answer in terms of dollars.

alternative to freedompop 4g?  netzero 4g

 

 

501c3 line in the sand

Privacy is a right.  Privacy is NOT a commodity.

 

Please do not whore your privacy for “free” stuff/services.   It harms you AND harms others by eroding the Expectation of Privacy.

Privacy Rape as profit is extraordinary evil.  At the very least always AdBlock all interweb use.  Third party interweb ads = privacy rape.  Privacy ‘can’ be sold in much the same way children can be sold as a product:  both are evidently wrong.

Privacy rape enabled by default?  That is soo unacceptable we need a whole new word to escape understatement.

Fortunately AdBlock Plus continues to be useful for content liberation research.  Still no stand alone XUL loopback proxy?

The tide in the android adblocking game is shifting in favor of privacy.

More elaborate local net filtering it is!  Oh the joy.  After epiphany I shall have some time to tinker.

“blocking ads harms free content”

really?  That tired argument.  It is obviously NOT free if the cost is privacy rape.  I HATE the promotion of android applications under the banner of free and the backhanded slap with adware flavor of malware.  Editing the APK is generally as trivial as blocking net connections.  A little more esoteric to deprive apps of reliable network state information.   The Spirit of Mozilla applied to android..

 

Blocking ads does not harm ANY free content or free software.  Blocking ads prevents one from being victimized by the heinously irrational defective business model syndrome.

“Respect my privacy” 

is the second highest concern to the allow unobtrusive ads model.  Google privacy rape?  Ring any bells?  Take a few moments (or hours if you’re a bit slow) to consider how google profits. How does allowing google ads respect privacy?  (hint: it doesn’t)

Now I’ll get to produce a PDF flyer for distribution to “everyone” how to reclaim the privacy AdBlock Plus supposedly provides.  oh goodie!  Or maybe I’ll get to repackage the extension and distribute it.  Yes, license complaints.  How’d that work out for zottmann?

Allowed adp comment with less eloquent objection but interesting malware analogy.  This is exactly what google android market does: allow “acceptable” malware.

selling != not-selling

If it is free there is no cost.

If there is a cost it is not free.

Yes, Johnny, words have particular meaning. Profound umbrige is taken against abuse of “free” as it is libelous against the thousands of f/OSS developers.

Giving away product and whining that no one purchased it?  What is your definition for insanity?

Don’t want your content in the public sphere?  Don’t place your content in the public sphere!  How challenging is this?  (genius not required)

Do Not track FARCE

until the evils of fine grained Geo IP Location are addressed one would be equally well served creating a do not track post-it note and affixing it to one’s monitor in the hopes of compliance. ISPs need offer privacy conscious users the option to have an IP address issued from a pool NOT related to where one resides/works/exists while surfing.

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!

▼ privacy HYPOCRISY agenda expanded by google: vigorously owning you AND yours with more crosslinked “free” products to self-digitize your soul [google privacy RAPE agenda]

Why should google settle to mine your self-digitized soul across “free” google properties?  Would it not be better to stitch products together into a rape frenzy kit for tighter behavioral data mining?

Absolutely.  facebook will be so jealous

Better feed your “friends” and less proximate social relations to the google soul chipper with plus.  If you do not value your own privacy or dignity why would you value that of another?

Now with Google Rape All Plus Enticements (Google RAPE) you can help google form an even more inappropriate intimacy with your life via their shiny “free” offering.

Remember, naysayer, google’s primary function is selling ads, which necessitates their secondary function: data mining.  Does google’s notion of “not evil” seem nearly indistinguishable from evil yet to you?

If company xxx did this to people there would be much hue and cry.  Why is it fanboi rabidly embraced willingly??

edit: with title “privacy rape agenda..” google removed the backlink from their blog.  “Open” Society sensitive nerve?

“do no evil” — which sounds like witchcraft, itself a spinoff of satanism like wicca

is NOT the same as:

‘do good’

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

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!
