The fact that I prefer to use monero to move my funds doesn't imply that I wouldn't support laws mandating a more privacy-respecting way of making bank transfers. Even if I don't support companies marketing virtual assistants, I'm not immune to surveillance through Amazon devices.

Free market doesn't exist, the money always flow from the government, they get to decide who gets the bigger slice of the pie, and then cut a little space where people who don't know better can gamble their life away. Next time you are gonna tell me communism has nothing to do with the Soviet Union and maoist China, because that's not how it was supposed to work? These are ghosts from the past wich for some reason still haunt many people.

The state is evil, the market is evil, we must contain them both. When people will start to value real privacy, it will be too late. Right now Apple is plastering cities with commercials advertising the privacy granted by their phones, this is their main slogan: "privacy, that's iphone". After all these years, we are at this point, companies are selling the illusion of privacy, that's the kind of progress the market has brought us.

Who cares if people will start looking for real privacy, if when they'll do big companies will have already ammassed decades of data of any kind, do you think that won't be enough to control and debase billion of lives? It's not like they don't have enough already, they just need to get better at extracting value from it.

I said what would be the least we should expect, if you prefer to accept this state of affairs, until the masses won't start suddenly caring, I guess you are settling for even less than me.

So the carmakers? According to the article you agree to this kind of surveillance whenever you buy a modern cars, that's fucked up.

On another note, I think the least lawmakers should do is come up with a very strict definition of what constitutes "anonymized data", since that's another expressions that gets used to justify this kind of stuff.

It's interesting because, from what I gather, in Germany they have the same rule regarding telecommunication providers as in Switzerland, but different interpretations of it or - more precisely - of what constitutes a telecommunication provider. Maybe it's true that Switzerland is still a decent model when it comes to privacy.

Upboat because you are the only one who replies to my posts. I see you have read the article carefully, but I'm pretty sure the part about migrant routes isn't realistic, ICE will find the tech more useful than any NGO, although you probably think ICE is on Soros' payroll.

I see a lot of neutered 'facts' in the middle of overton window

What do you mean? My take is that the use of this form of fingerprinting mechanism is worrying, especially when a huge share of all satellites in orbit is controlled by a manchild.

Replying to my own thread because I wanted to emphasize the following paragraph, which came to mind after reading the submission about camera sensor fingerprinting (or photo response non-uniformity).

Horizon also plans to compile a library of unique radar-pulse “fingerprints” of the world’s vessels, for the tiny differences in componentry that exist even between examples of the same make and model of equipment mean that signals can often be linked to a specific device. It will thus be able to determine not merely that a vessel of some sort is in a certain place, but which vessel it is, and where else it has been.

Don't know if any user of Ramble has his own vessel, but I guess this form of surveillance based on unique (unspoofable?) differences in componentry will be extended to other fields.

a brain wave or body heat emitted from the user when the user performs the task provided by an information service provider, such as viewing an advertisement or using certain internet services, can be used in the mining process

Couple this with the wrist controller designed by Facebook. This way corporations will be able generate wealth in a more direct way than selling ad space or personal data. Funny that when they talk about an "information service provider" they refer to an ad company.
