Does Congress Really Think They Can Stop Big Tech?

Source NY Times

It was simply embarrassing to watch.

Politicians (um lawyers) tried to grill the heads of Big Tech, and all they did was prove how clueless they are when it comes to how Big Tech works, and how they make their money. (but they don't mind taking donations from them).

This isn't Big Tobacco or a physical product, it is data creation and monetization that they control. You can't touch it or just change the packaging.

What these ignorant politicians don't realize is that Big Tech has ALREADY identified every computing device that has connected to the Internet.

Silicon Valley is 3 years ahead of the curve when it comes to technology, and the government is 3 years behind.

If the government is really serious about breaking up Big Tech, before they start regulating ads, search or content, they need to start with HOW Big Tech is able to collect data from EVERY device that is connected to the Net.

Take away the thing that gives them their monopoly..device identification.

Remote browsing is a great start to level the playing field against Big Tech.

Sure Big Tech will still be able to collect data from the computer doing the browsing, but they won't be able to correctly match the data with the actual person that is doing the browsing.

How To Solve The Defund The Police Movement

Here are the cities that have announced they are (or will be) defunding the police budget.

What that does is automatically make the city "less safe". Less cops means more crime.

Here's how you solve the defund police movement.

Get the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys to start soliciting cases in any city where a crime was committed.

The dollars "saved" in the police budget will pale in comparison to the monies paid out in settlements now that the damages can be quantified.

What Stops Google Cookies From Tracking You Online?

Cookies, those wonderful pieces of data that are inserted in your computer's memory to help websites remember you next time you visit.

Over time, it was discovered that cookies could also be used to track users across the internet.

They started piggybacking on websites, with those sites’ consent, to drop “third-party” cookies onto devices, as distinct from the first-party cookies coming from the websites themselves.

Google has ALREADY started to track you in new ways by doing this.

Soon they will be able to track you online, one EVERY site you visit and with EVERY device you use.

How do you prevent Google from tracking you?

It's easy, use a remote browser. Instead of Google tracking your computer, they track the server that you are user to browse with.

Google cannot match the real computer that is doing the browsing. They will still place cookies on the server, but NONE of those cookies will ever touch your computer.

Online privacy problem solved.

Mozilla VPN Exits Beta But Will It Be Too Late For Them?

Mozilla has launched its virtual private network (VPN) service to the public, starting with Windows 10 and Android in a handful of markets. 

The company debuted the browser-based Firefox Private Network last September as part of a pilot program. In June, Mozilla revealed it would soon be launching the VPN as a standalone cross-platform product for $4.99 per month and rebranding it as Mozilla VPN.

Mozilla is quickly losing market share in the browser wars and had massive layoffs earlier this year. They also face the threat of Google crushing them if they don't renew their contract, which generates over 90% of their revenue.

 So what do they do? They become one of the MANY MANY players that now offer a VPN.

Rather than think outside the box, and give users complete online privacy by running it the browser in the cloud, they are still focused on technology that was launched back in 1996.

Mozilla, once a pioneer for online privacy is now having to playing catch up. Their market share for the mobile is nonexistent and Microsoft's Edge just surpassed them on the browser leader board.

Amazon Offers Solution To Long Checkout Lines

The cart, which Amazon unveiled on Tuesday, uses cameras, sensors and a scale to automatically detect what shoppers drop in. It keeps a tally and then charges their Amazon account when they leave the store. No cashier is needed.

The online shopping giant opened a cashier-less supermarket in Seattle that uses cameras and sensors in the ceiling to track what shoppers grab and charge them as they leave. Inc. also has roughly 25 cashier-less convenience stores with similar technology.

 The cart, called Amazon Dash Cart, will first show up at a new Los Angeles supermarket Amazon is opening later this year.

The questions here.

Does Amazon continue to open their own cashier-less stores and take on Costco? 

Does Amazon license this technology out to other stores?

Does Amazon ad a display and offer ads while browsing in the store?

Does Amazon create their OWN ad network with these carts?

Is Covid 19 The Start Of A New "Age", The "Remote Age"?

Covid 19 is considered a "black swan" effect.

While we have been fighting jobs going to China, this Chinese born virus is shifting jobs to other cheap labor countries.

This is an unpredictable event that is beyond what is normally expected of a situation.

In just a few weeks a ramping economy would come to complete standstill. Any business that could have their employees work remotely, did so.

Remote employees made companies take a step back and access their bottom line.
The top 3 expenses for most companies are: payroll, rent and insurance.

Video conferencing solutions like Microsoft Teams or Zoom overnight changed the corporate expense landscape.

No longer would most companies need large office space if their employees could work remotely. It also highlighted something even more important.

If an employee didn't need to physically be in the office, why couldn't a company hire freelancers (and in other countries where labor is cheap?).

Videoconferencing combined with freelance services like Fiverr and UpWork could (and definitely will) make companies much fiscally leaner.

Not only does this eliminate the rent expense and insurance costs, but the payroll expense could be drastically reduced.

So while the market will be fixated on the unemployment rate or number of new jobs created, a better gauge might be to look at profit margins.

It's no coincidence that the NASDAQ (mainly tech companies) made an all time high when our unemployment rate is flirting with all time highs too.

Things To Ponder:

Could the combination of cloud computing, automation and remote working be one of the best things to happen to our economy?

Could the Covid 19 actually be the start of a new "age", the "Remote Age"?

Does anyone else find it odd how quickly the FDA is moving on THIS virus, THIS year?

A word to those knucklehead protestors too. Whatever trivial thing offends you now is NOTHING compared to when you find out some kid in the Philippines has taken your job for A LOT less pay and no benefits.

How To Be Anonymous On The Internet

You want to hide your browsing from Big Tech and the government but you’re not sure what private browsing solution can really do that.

A lot of new solutions claim that you can be “private and secure” if you use a VPN, Tor or a private search engine but they also show you how to clear your browsing history and cookies from the browser.

If you have to clear your cookies or browsing history from your computer, you are NOT HIDING your browsing from Big Tech.

In order to hide your browsing from Big Tech and the government, you need to hide the laptop or PC that is actually doing the browsing, or USE someone else’s computer!

A VPN, Tor or private browser do NOT keep you anonymous online because YOUR COMPUTER is actually doing the browsing.
Sure you could go the public library or an Internet cafe and use their computer to browse but that isn’t really convenient.

Now there is an easy way to hide your browsing using your own laptop or PC without leaving your home, it is done with a remote browser.

A remote browser lets you browse the Web and use someone else’s computer (called a server).

Your keyboard and mouse remotely control that computer and the browsing session is streamed to your monitor. It’s like watching TV or a movie on Netflix.

A website cannot identify you. Your Internet provider can’t tell what sites you visited and EVERY search you make is private.

There is no browsing history or cookies to delete. This private browsing also keeps your computer from ever getting a virus either!

A remote browser like TraceFree is the best private browser because you are completely anonymous online and always virus free.

Think of it like driving a rental car. All of Big Tech’s cameras still scan your license plate but they cannot tell that it is you or your computer that is actually doing the browsing.

This is how you can browse anonymously!

The Best Private Browser

You want to surf the Web without a website identifying, tracking or infecting your device?

A VPN can't do that because data from a website still gets on your computer.

Big Tech is so afraid of this new browser because they cannot identify the user, their device or their true location.
