Take-Two (Rockstar Game's publisher) issued a Cease & Desist on a popular single-player file modification tool OpenIV, pissing off the entire modding community following that game. Steam users have been reviewing the game negatively on Steam to lower the review score, attempting to deter any new buyers and make a statement about why it was a bad idea.
The only thing that's changed is that the patents on the underlying technology have expired.
People can now use and further develop the technology without paying a royalty so the developer (the Fraunhofer Institute) Fraunhofer desperately wants people to move to a newer (patented) technology so they can get back their cash spigot.

Funnily enough, Drake used to be a Pusha fan. Here's a small clip about him as a teenager using a mic signed by Pusha T.
In the same clip you can hear Drake and his youth friends talk about his hair, which got adressed in - you guessed it - Pushas latest diss track ('The Story of Adidon').
Moot has been the single main admin of 4chan since he started it 11 years ago. He's seen it through times where he had to take out personal loans to keep the server afloat due to increased traffic or when he had to replace/update the server due to it aging. Over the past couple of years he's been striving to make the site self sufficient fiscally as well as building a team of admins/maintainers that could eventually run the site for him (even though that wasn't immediately apparent). As of yesterday he decided to step down and allow the team he's been building to take over running the site day to day.
Some people think this is the final death blow to a community that has been circling the drain for years while some boards just continue with business as usual.

There is no 31 TB of data. McAfee said he had 31 TB, but the only thing that "materialized" was the Eth transactions, which can't store much data. For reference, the entire Ethereum ledger (as in, every transaction to date) is ~250GB, or well under 1% of the data McAfee said he had ^source.
E: I misread your comment. No, we have no way to prove that the 31 TB that was uploaded to some torrent site was from McAfee. It's entirely likely that it's just junk/corrupted data that someone stuck up there to create a stir.
Here's a fairly high-level overview:
Ebay used to own PayPal, but PayPal is becoming its own, completely separate entity. That's great news for PayPal in terms of business. For the most part, users don't have to do anything except agree to some redone Terms of Service agreements and the like.
However, because PayPal has to redo a lot of their legal stuff like TOS agreements, they're adding in some new stuff. One of the new things is that PayPal is allowed to call users with pre-recorded messages, something that people are understandably annoyed with.
Nobody knows yet whether users will have an option to opt-out of this "service" yet, but given the amount of public backlash they've already received, they would be stupid not to. Furthermore, some countries (US, Canada, Britain I think) have laws to prevent companies from harassing consumers with robo-calls, so there's that too.
EDIT: Changed link to PayPal's website.
EDIT 2: /u/kickstand linked to an article claiming PayPal is now going to allow users to opt-out.

It's similar to Twitter, in that people make short posts (500 character max) and reply to people. It's similar to email, in that anyone can run their own server and all the servers talk to each other.
Some people have stopped using Twitter for various reasons, and Mastodon emerged as an alternative.
The main website to look at is probably joinmastodon.org

That's cute. GSM Arena lists 79 Android devices that came out this year alone. Considering that most Android devices stay on the market for a year or two, let's look at how many different Android phones were released between 2017 and now: 947
Now, of course not all of these are available in all markets (the US is usually getting the short end of the stick in terms of choice due to their carrier system), many are limited to certain countries like India or China, but still, there's a bewildering number of Android phones available.

This is a new low for microsoft:
Otherkin is a weird concept that has a bit of popularity on Tumblr. The idea behind it is that the people who claim to be, say "wolfkin", "dragonkin" or whatever possess the souls of whichever animal (or even fictional character or god) and reside within human bodies. A typical otherkin poster might say they have sort of "phantom limb" sensations with perceived tails or wings or what have you.
Otherkin are controversial. The people that believe them tend to presume either that:
A) They really are (Marvel) Loki's soul in a human female's body.
B) They have dissociative identity disorder.
Now I'll admit I'm more on the second disposition, they're just doing this for fun, attention and to feel special in the infinite expanse of the internet where any one individual often has little to no worth. Just look at what "kintypes" they usually are. "Wolfkin", "Owlkin", "Centaurkin", no one is ever "snailkin" or "chickenkin". They always are something that's cool or special, which reeks of choice.
I think that's the gist of it.
They're also not just "paid for." adblock has a criteria they have to meet to be allowed. This is intended to encourage companies to make less intrusive advertising.
They're very reserved people, who don't really want to be famous or on the media spotlight. They will produce an album, then disappear for quite a few years. They only go on a tour every 10 years or so, and have very strong artistic integrity. (Rumor goes that they refused a 4 million paycheck for a single night performing in Dubai) That doesn't mean that they won't produce stuff for corporations (e.g. they made the Soundtrack for TRON: Legacy, which was made by Disney, and even appeared on the film), but they will be very picky on what projects they want to take part in.
They seem to be real music enthusiasts that do it for fun and artistic realization, not for profit or fame, so they want to retain their "real" identities private so that they can still walk around on the streets without being noticed, etc.

Probably the guy raising $10,000 to make potato salad didn't help
EDIT: It's now almost at $40,000. This is just idiotic. 66 people pledged $50 to it.
The difference is that there's an alternative to Daraprim that costs $1 (as opposed to Daraprim's $750), so patients needn't suffer from the price hike.
Although there is an alternative to the Epipen, it's more expensive than the Epipen was and it seems there are still hurdles to overcome in order to get one.
To put it another way, the Epipen price hike is far more likely to lead to unnecessary deaths than the Daraprim one.

Yes, for anybody but a the largest of the largest tech companies, they will have to utterly shut down all their social media/user-submitted-content functions in the EU. They simply cannot begin to afford the ability to comply with this law.
The problem is the law is absolute and demands pre-screening of content, holding a company liable even if they rapidly take down a violation in good faith. If they had merely made it so that websites were liable if they didn't remove copyright content in "a reasonably swift manner" it would have had serious teeth but still permitted social Media to function.
I mean one has to think about the sheer scale of this. Take video for example. Every single second of submitted video has to be scanned against the entirety all of copyright media of all kinds. That means that every new 1 mintue of video has to be compared to the trillions of hours of video ever created in the last 60 years before its approved, and then repeat with the every additional minute of video.
Its just not possible to comply with this law.
The easiest check will be that webservers will block all connection attempts from IP addresses known to be in use in the EU. Like you will go to visit your favorite forum or social media site and be informed that this page is blocking all EU access. You could use a VPN with USA endpoint to get around it however. But those cost money and will operate at a fraction of your current bandwidth simply because of the distance involved. Because of the massive useage if all of Europe tries to hop on Private Internet Access (US-based) to view youtube PIA might well block youtube on their service because they can't begin to service up the peta-bytes of throughput needed for youtubing on an EU scale.
You sure of that? According to this article:

I don't know if this answer your question, but Skype is no longer the biggest player in video chat game. I personaly, and a lot of people I know, prefer discord instead of skype.
Here a very good analysis of the difference between both software : https://www.slant.co/versus/4554/5637/~skype_vs_discord
I use Mullvad. Quality VPN with options to pay with Bitcoin and cash. Flat amount of money per month (no "discounted" annual plan BS) and they just give you an account number rather than making you provide personal information towards creating an account.
None of this explains why Mullvad or Windscribe would be a better choice than Nord.
Once you eliminate the VPN providers that are owned by a big shady conglomerate or incorporated in the US or another surveillance-happy country, the remaining ones are pretty evenly matched and which one you pick comes down to personal preference.
I haven't heard any substantital counterpoints to Nord other than a brief security issue in '19. Everything else is "I don't like them because they advertise so much, or because I already use something else." Which is legit, but you don't have to shit-talk oranges just because you like apples more.
It's worth noting that it's not a good idea to change your passwords for websites until after they have patched their SSL and revoked and been reissued their certifications.
>Lately Kickstarter changed their launch rules allowing creators to launch without being reviewed by the company.
That explains it. I tried to launch a Kickstarter campaign a while back, and it was denied because they wanted more proof that I had actually started the project (yet they didn't have any way to edit it, and never responded to my emails). Now I see things like this getting through.
Don't I wish! No, I'm not very knowledgeable on the subject. Porn is more my area of faps-pertise, and specifically fetish porn. Even more specifically, fetish porn produced by Kink.com. Those guys and gals make some quality fetish porn, and the legal footwork they did that in effect allowed more weird and wild porn to be produced in the US is a service to pervs everywhere. I think without Kink.com, things like FetLife and reddit's own BDSMCommunity wouldn't be nearly as popular - they've done a lot to regularize fetishism for mainstream porn consumers and non-consumers alike, and the 2257-required pre- and post-interviews (which were supposed to let performers complain about acts they didn't consent to and thus were not legally obligated to perform, as happened when an Insex.com performer, tied up and gagged, was subject to an anal assault she had neither asked for nor consented to, and which she essentially couldn't stop (i.e., she was raped*)) have turned into a forum for all these hot freaky girls to let their freak flags fly, both in anticipation of some weird, wild, often public sex, and then in the afterglow of said events.
* I know, it's very hypocritical of me to lionize a company that allowed an adult performer to be raped on-camera. I have absolutely no good reason. It seems like a likely eventual scenario in that kind of situation, which is why I'm glad the 2257 rules are in place now, but it was fucked up, and Insex covered it up/wouldn't talk about it for a long time. I'm not sure what their official position is on it now, but there's a documentary on the company amd the incident I've never been able to make myself watch, if anyone's interested.
Pretty sure you can just exempt yourself completely from health care:
>Coverage is considered to be unaffordable if the lowest cost Bronze-level plan available to you through the Marketplace in 2016 is more than 8.13% of your household income.
>The total cost to you must be more than 8.13%, including any premium tax credit you would qualify for if you enrolled in that plan.
Considering its about 60% of your household income, I'm pretty sure you're exempt. Even if you qualified for 50% of your income in subsidies, that'd put you at 10% of your income and therefore exempt.

Nice twitter description, although you're probably kidding ;)
But really, how easy you are to track down through the internet really depends on how much information about yourself you put online. Youtube tells me you're somewhere in the states, assuming you were honest on that. Which country you're from does narrow it down a bit (but not that much,) but I'm not about to start looking *that* hard.
You probably have nothing to worry about. Other people posting here might though (because fuck scientology; come at me Tom Cruise ,ya five foot fuck nugget)
I'd also recommend seeing how badly you have been pwned to get an idea as to how much information of yours might be out there and in what form.
Answer: to give a bit more context, the Epic Store is pretty much objectively inferior to the Steam Store when it comes to features. It currently has a roadmap with lots of to-be-implemented features that Steam already has, including cloud saves and a shopping cart.
The reason these exclusivity deals are happening is because of benefits to the game developer/publisher: the Epic Store takes a smaller cut of sales than Steam does, and Epic is presumably paying for these deals. This is good for the game creators, but players are upset because they view this as Epic throwing their money around to force their way into the digital distribution market without doing the work of building a storefront that people want to use.
British Airways outsourced their IT team to India, so everyone is blaming it for their computer system outage. British Airways is receiving criticism because they outsourced to save costs, even if it means having unqualified employees. Many companies have received similar criticisms.
In recent years, UK-based IT staff have been laid off and replaced with Indian replacements from Tata Consultancy Services, a major outsourcing company. In 2016, British Airways slashed 700 jobs in the UK. According to Mick Rix, a representative of trade union GMB, five of these worked in the equipment and facilities team at the facility that experienced the power surge. https://thenextweb.com/insider/2017/05/29/outsourcing-cause-british-airways-meltdown/#.tnw_DqLAOPkU

They're not too bad, they're just far from ideal if you happen to be a person of interest to a government or something. Most people would likely be totally fine with Nord.
For those that are particularly paranoid or have some good reason to care even more about privacy then they could get a different provider like Mullvad instead.
Well being under creative commons as the license on the website states. you are allowed to adapt the content, even commercially. So technically they can sell the stuff they make, but it is sharealike so if they transformed anyone elses work they have to also distribute theirs under the license the previous work was under and offer it for sale, they just have to credit the original artists. But it also depends if the content put on the website falls under the realm of being in the public domain, I do not believe it is.
Now this all matters in the United States which is where the original license is under. International copyright is a crapshoot so what Audrey is doing could be completely legal, but it doesnt mean it is not SUPER dickish.

Public attitudes are shaped and driven by the media. If the public doesn't care, it's because we've spent years conditioning them not to care. If the public in general can't name many middle eastern cultures beyond "Muslim", that is very much the fault of the media.
If prominent newspapers started giving front page headlines to the plight of the Kurds, you'd certainly see a considerable public reaction, but right now the cycle is dominated by the anti-communist Hong-Kong protest coverage because it serves an agenda for the United States. Kurds being killed because the American government made the decision to abandon them? That's a bad look on America and the media won't give it nearly as much attention. See Manufacturing Consent on this dynamic.

The definition of Malware doesn't always mean straight up harmful viruses, and the Law is still not very strong on this (Also, the company originated from Israel, then was based in London, I think, so that adds some jurisdiction issues). Ever downloaded a software from the wrong website, and found it bundled with a bunch of Browser extensions that redirected all your searches to their weird search engines, and a bunch of other stuff like this? Well, that's the kind of software they made. I don't think this behavior is criminal yet, even from a copyright standpoint, it would only result in a civil lawsuit from the owner of the original "bait" software.
The company changed their name from Crossrider and started buying up VPNs. At least one of which CyberGhost has an ad-blocker that uses traffic manipulation methods that shouldn't be used by VPNs, they even used to bypass the built-in HTTPS encryption (by installing their own root certificate), in order to access even originally encrypted traffic, to modify traffic and "remove ads" from the traffic. They had better access to your data than your ISP. (This is according to this article:

Answer: TL:DR I believe it is in reference to users fighting back againt the ban TiKTok is facing from the U.S.
In-Depth: Generally hands holding each in a circle like the image provided, represents unity and solidarity especially connecting to race as it is depicted with different skin colours of each hand.
This COULD be in reference to racial tension in the U.S. though the hands all being one colour and being told " The war has just begun" suggests something else.
Best guess it may represent "Internet Unity" as users on TikTok fight back against the ban of the app placed by the Trump Administration.
It's a racial slur against black people. According to William Safire (who credits Clarence Major for the explanation), it's derived from a Bantu word meaning "slavish" (in the sense of being a slave, not a Slav). It's also often abbreviated as "jig".
It's in the news because an anchor at the Fox News affiliate in Cleveland, OH said on the air that Lady Gaga plays "jigaboo music" (in a conversation with a black co-host, no less), and there was some understandable blowback from viewers. She claims that she didn't understand what it actually meant. Link.

Without getting overly complicated it will certainly go up eventually. There are a lot of factors that influence gas price but the simple answer is it is a limited resource that we still have a lot of demand for. To see it in action here are the average gas prices in the US over time. You can see they go up and down quite a bit. These things tend to be cyclical and unless something major changes it will increase in price again.
Edit: The simple answer as to why they are low now is there is a big supply of oil and less demand for it. This combined with the world economy not consuming as much oil due to harder economic times is probably a big factor in why its cheap. This is not the only reason as the oil market is very complicated and can't be explained fully simply.

It's literally the first result when you look up "Hepler Bioware", on both the images tab and the all tab. It's the first thing in the Kotaku post about her, and that's saying something considering how Kotaku usually leans.
I wasn't intending to use the added slander in there against her - her own words do enough of that.
She also (and these are in that picture too) said she wanted Dragon Age 2 to not be "another generic boring fantasy that you expect was written from some boring old white guy", and on Mass Effect 3 she said "I highly reccomend having a homosexual Shepard in Mass Effect 3", which, while I have no issues with it, could easily be construed as baiting out responses.
>She was not in control of any of the decisions that don't tough the story. Other people do that.
This is completely fair, but I'd still say it's bad form to say you don't like playing video games when working for a games studio.
It's worse form to say: "they're jealous that I get to have both a vagina AND a games industry job, and they can't get either", and she said that too.
I have an obvious axe to grind, after how ME3 mangled the ending (ironically, with bad writing NOT by the writing team), and how terrible Andromeda was, so I know I'm very biased on this, but Hepler said about the worst thing she could in any scenario.
In what regard is Mullvad better for privacy than Nord? I would like specifics, please.
Aside from that, if you are a person of interest to a sufficiently motivated government (agency), using any VPN is entirely inadequate. You should use Tor and other privacy-enhancing tools, preferably in combination.
Your screen resolution and browser alone are enough to identify you pretty strongly.

Not really. It's also his lingo, his vernacular, his words that are just way out of touch from a 'techie'. This guy is purported as a security(technology?) analyst: the kind of person that's supposed to know shit. He's an idiot.
I'm not a psychologist, nor do I analyze speech or word choice/body language professionally, but "Consider using encryption" sounds like the kind of thing someone that doesn't know what encryption is or how it works would say to sound more educated. This is CNN, the vast majority of their audience are tech illiterate. Saying "Consider using encryption", to me, sounds like the kind of thing you would say to ignorant people to make them think you're valid or qualified to be talking about this issue. He doesn't explain how to use encryption or what encryption is. It's one of those buzz words to make you think: "Wow this guy is really smart".
That's my take-away at least.
(Or CNN pays him to talk to the LCD of the CNN audience.)
To be clear, you absolutely should be using encryption if you're backing things up with a third party. GPG, learn it, use it, love it.

He's also known for posting some rambling and unlikely story a couple years ago about getting a call from the "CEO of iTunes" about needing to get more servers to handle the popularity of his album.
I always thought Red Hot Chili Peppers originated this. https://www.discogs.com/Red-Hot-Chili-Peppers-Rock-Out-With-Your-Cock-Out/master/584771 (1992)
I disagree. If you need laugh tracks to get 'real' laughs in the living rooms, your jokes are weak.
Laugh tracks have one simple function: They tell you when to laugh. And I can't help but feeling manipulated as a viewer.
I mean, you're most likely fine. Goverments do not care about you, and only goverments could force Nord to allow them to tap the traffic the yare forwarding.
For anybody who has read Tumblr's license, porn videos have been against the rules for ever since I was on the site; they've just recently started taking them down.
To directly quote Tumblr's Community Guidelines, they're "not in the business of hosting adult-oriented videos (and it's fucking expensive)."
From this link:
>Mozilla and Google have pulled the extension from their stores after a report aired on German national television that the company was selling the browsing history of its users.
Panorama (a relative trustworthy show with a good reputation) managed to gain access to a large data collection that contained the browsing history of 3 million Germans. Thats all I know so far.
21st century America has had a big propaganda push to "Support the Troops" in the first and second Gulf War. Nifty graph!
Part of it is probably jingoism and a manipulative attempt to garner support for the war.
On the other hand, veterans who fought in the Vietnam war were targeted for abuse as part of the ongoing protest against that war. Young men were drafted against their will, sent around the world, fought in a gruesome and vicious civil war that scarred many of them for life, then returned home to be vilified and blamed for the violence they suffered.
Lessons from that generation have been taken to heart, and the US now generally blames the politicians for policy and respects the soldiers as guys doing a tough job. Thus, "Thanks for your service" carries a lot of baggage.
See these two articles:
A pro-Trump subreddit was full of calls for violence. It's now been quarantined.
You can't offer to murder cops on Reddit unless you're on r/TheDonald
An aside: It was sooooo weird to see /t_d today without their very annoying, huge subscription overlay.
That's not MAD at all. Nuking a few military targets will not destroy the United States.
>Mutual assured destruction, or mutually assured destruction (MAD), is a doctrine of military strategy and national security policy in which a full-scale use of high-yield weapons of mass destruction by two or more opposing sides would cause the <strong><em>complete annihilation</em></strong> of both the attacker and the defender.
USA and Russia (possibly China too) can do that. No other countries can perform MAD otherwise. Well unless Vatican City and San Marino secretly have a single nuke each and then nuke each other.
Shovel Knight is the main character of his game, which was made thanks to a very successful Kickstarter campaign. It's another retro-styled indie game, except Shovel Knight is actually really really good.
People are voting for him for Smash because he's a unique character who would fit in the game well and because his game was prominently featured on Nintendo consoles (it was only on Wii U, 3DS, and PC at launch, and the PS4 and Vita versions were announced much later). Realistically he has no chance, but better odds than Goku at least.
Douglas Blackman wrote a book about this that won a pulitzer. It's actually a really easy read and delves into detail about sharecropping and prison labor. It's absolutely heartbreaking what people did to the freed slaves.
>reddit, a relatively niche community
It's not as niche as you might think. Reddit.com has a global Alexa score of 61 and a US Alexa score of 24. In the US, that puts them above Netflix, MSN, AOL, Fox News, New York Times, Pornhub, NBC, etc, etc. It's estimated that 6% of online Americans are redditors - that might not be facebook levels of mainstream, but it's still pretty damn impressive. Between the sheer numbers and the typical redditor demographic being somewhat harder to reach through traditional channels, at least the concept of fairly large players taking an interest in the default subs isn't at all unreasonable.
The USB-C connector. The only port on the new Macbook is a USB-C port that almost nobody uses yet. If you want to plug anything into it you will have to buy an adapter until other companies start adapting USB-C. The charger also plugs into the same port, so if you want to plug anything into your Macbook while it's charging you will have to go through a hub that Apple will gladly sell you for $79. All about the new USB-C port.
Another reason, not mentioned yet: they've been on a buyback binge for a while now, decreasing the number of public shares and driving the price up.
You will get spammed everytime you use your computer and unless you are very cautious you may still end up with win10 installed on your computer because it can schedule itself to be installed. A lot of people have started their computer one day and notice it has been updated to win10 during the night for example. Or an update can start completely out of the blue while you are working on something. And if you install it and then choose to rollback to your previous windows version the spam will start again. Also win10 may simply choose to uninstall some software on its own that it finds incompatible. You also need to register all your software again if you have paid versions.
Windows 7 and 8 will also download the win10 update all on its own which can break your datacaps. Windows will also use p2p to share windows patches which also adds traffic coming and going from your computer. And it also sends data to microsoft.
Win10 also comes with a lot of spying software that basically makes it a privacy risk imho (I'd not be surprised if it recorded all your keyboard inputs, websites you visit and all your metadata. You you know, what programs you use, when and so forth...). Windows offers some options to turn that shit off but you need some other software or registry hacking to get rid of it all. And when windows updates itself it turns some of those settings back on which you had turned off previously. Also win10 has removed a lot of control from the windows update so you can't really control how, what and when you install (or not) the windows updates.
And if that wasn't enough microsoft has been putting these same spying addons into windows 7 and 8.1. So either way you probably want to do some cleaning up unless you have no problem with the spying. One option is to run http://dws.wzor.net/. Other good option is https://www.safer-networking.org/spybot-anti-beacon/. Be careful with whatever you use as there are some fake win10 softwares as well.
Hopefully if you try and restrict them to this app it might help avoid those videos:
Yeah. He's been on probation for 11 years now, and they keep extending it for petty bullshit. He's 30, and he's still under supervision for some shit he pulled when he was 19.
Facing 2-4 YEARS for this bullshit.
Fascism isn't defined by immediate round-ups. Trump is clearly fascist in his leanings, and his support base includes every fascist in the USA - including Steve Bannon.
Try BetterDiscord. There are many themes available. You can even customize them to your liking if you know a little bit of CSS.
There is an estimation of 2/3 of the websites being affected. This is, of course, way too much, but AFAIK, Google and Yahoo are affected, Microsoft's are not (they don't use OpenSSL, obviously).
EDIT: Also Steam, GOG were also affected.
Long story short: Change your passwords.
EDIT2: There is a list on mashable that describes more services: http://mashable.com/2014/04/09/heartbleed-bug-websites-affected/
Yes. A lot of programs have this line for trying to identify the OS:
Which was used to determine whether the OS was 95 or 98 compared to some other OS's. Windows 9 would return true for that.
>After a devastating 12-day rampage from the Caribbean to the U.S. Mid-Atlantic, Hurricane Matthew was reclassified as a post-tropical cyclone at 5 am EDT Sunday by the National Hurricane Center. Matthew wasn’t exactly slacking off--its top sustained winds remained 75 mph as of NHC’s 2 pm Sunday advisory--but it no longer had the warm core required for tropical-cyclone status. At 2 pm EDT, Matthew was located about 150 miles east of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, moving east at 15 mph. After days of computer models suggesting a potential loop back toward Florida, it now appears Matthew will continue eastward and gradually dissipate.
>It will be some time before we have a more complete sense of Matthew’s toll, but we already know that it is the deadliest hurricane in the Western Hemisphere since 2005. In Haiti, Matthew took at least 877 lives and and left entire towns across southern Haiti almost completely destroyed. A handful of deaths and significant damage were also reported in Cuba, Jamaica, The Bahamas, Colombia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and the Dominican Republic. After Haiti, it was the United States that took the worst of Matthew’s wrath. At least 16 U.S. deaths have been reported, and insured damage is expected to total at least $4 billion.
Also, there is still significant flooding happening in the Carolinas, and people are still being rescued. Updated estimated amount of insured damages is over $6 billion.
Again, not a guru myself, but on their FAQ they mention a bit of how their encryption works. Could anyone elaborate on how much non-standard their encryption method is?
> So do you think these example of people with no anti vax background on their Reddit profiles are just randomly all lying?:
Either they are mistaken and attributing things to magnetism that are not, or yes, they are lying. Propagating hoaxes is a tried and true activity on the internet, and non of the subs you linked to are exactly unbiased.
Here is a link to a handheld EMF meter you can buy on Amazon for $20. https://www.amazon.com/Electromagnetic-Radiation-Detector-Handheld-Dosimeter/dp/B07V2XPNV9/ I challenge anyone to use an actual EMF detector to detect a magnetic field from a vaccine injection site. Spoiler alert: they won't.
Christ, people have been amusing children by breathing on a spoon and hanging it from their nose for centuries.
Exactly this is the exact opposite of capitalism. This government incompetence/corruption. People don't even seem to know the definition...
"an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market"

It's just a idle game. You can play it without steam here. Most people probably just leave it in the background while doing other things and go back to it when they beat the level.
