>>26118523 so you admit that they are spying? because literally none of that information is useful to anyone unless they were doing something wrong. anyone who uses that software is treated as a criminal before jury, you might as well advocate a camera in your house feeding directly to your local police servers since you aren't doing anything wrong
oh wait, they cant do that because its illegal. i wonder why its illegal, probably has something to do with your inalienable rights your founding fathers wrote up or something
>>26118568 So you are saying they have time to manually scan 1 billion of people? I doubt that is possible. And you say they are spying on us like if it was something new, anon. The more you try to hide, the more they are gonna spy on you. You are just putting yourself into the pic related, for going against them, you know that, right?
>>26118565 They're collecting browsing history, downloads etc. to serve you relevant ads. Would you rather see something you don't care about on the side, or something you do? But, of course, you wouldn't believe that. >N-No, they're gathering it because Google's gonna kidnap 100,000,000+ people or start a revolution or something!! O-Open your eyes, people! Google isn't going to take over the world with your search history, take off your tinfoil hat. >No, you don't get it! T-they send it to employers!! If you honestly name your Google account with your own name, you deserve to be denied your shitty minimum wage job.
>>26118618 Correct, so you probably use Ad Block. That's all fine and good, but when and if I want to support a website I'm visiting, say, 4chan or a favorite YouTube user for example, I can turn Ad Block off for those things, and when I see ads, I would rather see an advertisement about a cool looking game I haven't heard of yet than an advertisement about local lawyers or singles in your area.
>>26118718 >a Pi You are joking right? I don't think you can even use a broser with less than 1 gb ram nowadays, most sistes tell you that they don't support your win 98 browser no more. Last time I tried to use the net with a firefox 29, the 256 mb ram wasn't enough. And it has an amd athlon xp 1.4ghz
>>26118729 Sure, but it's not exactly the same thing as using dedicated plugins for handling blocklists.
For example, one of the blocklist (easylist, IIRC) has a long winded feud with sourceforge, which basically prevents any sourceforge based page from loading. At least, with ABP or UBO I can simply temporarily disable the block, instead of double checking every single time a txt list.
>>26118739 >you are joking right? Kek, you ricefags make me laugh. Yep, it works, and it's even fast. Retropie+Matchbox+Iceweasel (39 I think). Never had a significant slowdown, it even manages to run youtube videos.
>>26118950 Dude I just want the newest shit because it feels good to own it. That's my hobby, anon. Isn't it exciting to unpack a new power source? to upgrade your monitor, your hard drive, gpu and ram? To update the software, to blow off the dust from the cpu and enjoy that awesome feeling of the pc working again like brand new after that? If you you don't know that feel, then you are missing out.
>>26118971 Oh, I used to know that feeling, don't get me wrong. It's just that, after a bit, it felt...pointless. Nowadays I get more kicks from seeing a supposedly 'dead' machine getting new life with no slowdowns.
But hey, to each his own. Being a bleeding-edgefag is still better than, for example, those people who can't and DON'T WANT TO tinker with their computers a bit, to get them to work.
>>26118994 >tfw you don't even browse /g/ and you are just tech savvy >>26118997 Confirmed for poorfag. I bet you are so poor actually, you don't even have spare cash like I do to actually donate to the poor. Also, we have to have something to amuse us until we die.
>>26118976 how you were using it didn't make sense either. ricers are purely cosmetic, there are hardware ricers, they spend hundreds on a case andspend several days hiding every wire in it. but just using an old pc is simply resourceful. many linux distros for example are built for computers with so little ram like puppy linux and slackware, and even without an x server 256 megabytes is more than enough for a server box
>>26119011 >Confirmed for poorfag. What kind of logic is that? No, idiot, because I don't buy new shit all the time I actually can hold onto my money and will soon have so much I can retire early. Enjoy being a wage slave.
>>26119016 Just wish I could run a tekkit server with an old toaster. But I think the mb is burned out or something, I just can't get it to even turn on, I have checked every connection and the power supply works. Oh well, I guess that's what you get for installing it incorrectly for so many fucking years. I still don't really understand how did it work well for so long when it was just over a napkin...
>>26119028 Sorry to ruin your fantasies, but I actually have enough cash to retire right now, without even working. I am just spending the cash from my job irresponsibly because I fucking can, and I already traveled the world.
>>26119097 Kek I knew you would never believe it, but oh well. I had to sleepin the street at some point, and I still kinda want to die, but at least money is not a problem anymore. Thanks I guess, Father. >>26119110 kek
>>26119183 >>26119164 Let me put it like this: every single thing you do on internet gets logged. They have your IP and they have a generic anonymous ID related to your machine and location. All they need to do, to track you, is keeping a log of which ID got which IPs.
>>26119171 >You don't know what the people looking at you think you ought not be doing 1.) Google isn't above the law, take off your tinfoil hat 2.) Google will not rise above the law, it's a corporation, take off your tinfoil hat 3.) No actual human being looks at everyone's browsing history, a robot does it and tunes adverts that are served to you accordingly, every chrome user doesn't have their own "guardian angel" employee at Google tracking their every move
>>26119251 see >>26118940 >>26119217 Which is hilarious since that means they are unwilling to hunt over all pedos or else. Which is proof enough that your conspiracy theories of them being able to track 1 billion people just aren't feasible, otherwise they would have got the all the pedos, the cultists and the killers that browser the net by now.
>>26119274 A little, considering if any corporation in the USA does anything remotely illegal they are facing total shutdown, and the like. Unlike you, I have a little faith in government and don't believe that it's run by a shady underground society that for some reason has different actual laws than the ones that are established and shown to the world so they have the moral permission to take out random people who believe they are law abiding citizens for the lols. And I'm pretty sure Google doesn't have a ninja assassin's creed type sector to take down people who watch the wrong type of porn
>>26119231 Law is dictated by the government. Do you know what the government is? It's not sentient, and it's neither benevolent nor malevolent. It's just a system of institutions, all of which ultimately boil down to a bunch of people. Without a head, it would be blind, stupid, and utterly devoid of an agenda. Right now, the United States is a big, plutocratic mess where big corporations are the closest thing that this network has to a head. Big corporations control the government, and Google will do whatever it wants.
>>26119352 Yeah, and the fact people don't get hired for jobs because their employer uses Google to search for their name and if they find anything they don't like they don't hire them isn't enough of a reason for you to be wary of things that try to preserve all sorts of information about you forever?
inb4 "you put it on there yourself!" No my friend, this is that belief in the system thing that you have again.
>>26119231 They set up huge vacuums for data. All the government needs is a subpoena and google will hand over all the nitty gritty details and they can find something to hammer you down with. >>26118587 The whole point is that the systems are not human active ones but passive sinks of information. It is very possible to prevent data from leaking to them and the less you allow, the better. They don't "try harder" because no one is monitoring these systems to that degree, they just don't see any information.
>>26119403 Not sure if you know or not, but the United States of America is led by three branches. The executive, or the President of the USA and about 5 million workers, the legislative, which includes the Senate and the House of Representatives, and the Judicial, which includes the Supreme Court. None of these branches include businesses or corporations. Typically, a nation is run by government, not businesses, which is the system the USA follows. Also, companies are defined in law as "legal persons," or basically under the same laws as a real person. Google doesn't have the right to go and murder someone because they feel like it because Google has the same rights as a person. >>26119458 Google ≠ NSA Google doesn't have a fucking cabinet somewhere that states "User 'Fuckmeintheass Clinton' is actually 'Joe Brown'. Make sure to tell employers this if they ask." They don't have the time or resources to go to every single user that has a Google account's IP address, look up their home address and get the names of everyone who lives there, it's A.) illegal and B.) too inaccurate, as multiple people may live in one home who all have Google accounts. >inb4 "but Google is above the law, they are working with the government and getting away with literal murder!" Read what I wrote to the other poster, companies don't have different, more laxed laws than people
>>26119641 >companies don't have different, more laxed laws than people Not the anon you were talking to, but they kinda do, if their activity can ease the control operated by the government.
This of course doesn't mean they can do what they want, nor that they can kill people. See more it like this: they are placed into a sistem that can slow down a bit their fall if they happen to bend the law, enough to get around it.
>>26119749 >I was watching the match with a friend, on irc. >When /g/ scored the 1-0, my friend started to say "Fuck, it's over..." >I just wrote "...faith" >Then, after the 1-1 I wrote again "See? Faith". >And then, when rape scored... >"I FUCKING TOLD YOU TO HAVE FAITH! I FUCKING DID!" Nice memories.
>>26119641 Corporations have their claws in every branch of government. They decide who runs for president through donations (executive), they bribe representatives and pay for lobbyists (legislative), and the supreme court has favored them enough to allow the previously stated things happen (judicial). And that's just talking about branches, not to mention the influence they have over the population through TV and whatnot.
