So the privacy bussiness has me worried.
Its not about keeping our privacy
Its not about making people aware of the big data spying

What can we do to end the big companies spying on us? It'll be a better world if all google services where paid and W10 was sold in stores.
A couple of weeks ago I'd read an article about how the profits for google's adservice had gone down and how google may not be able to keep up with its bussiness model but that is too optimistic.
>What can we do to end the big companies spying on us?
Nothing. It's a natural consequence of the logic of capitalism and authority that whatever privacy you have is always at risk of being taken away. The relatively quick and easy way in which the public more or less forgot about everything that Snowden revealed, and everything that's come out of that, is proof that there's nothing we can do to make people give a shit about the fact that they are the dominated subjects of a police state.

The best thing we can do is create a meshnet for people who giev a shit about being free from government spying and see the potential of the web for being more than another means to passively consume media.

IBM Patents Printer That Doesn’t Copy Infringing Content Comrade 05/16/2016 (Mon) 17:35:21 [Preview] No. 77 [Reply]
>IBM has submitted an application to expand its portfolio with a rather peculiar patent. To protect rightsholders the technology company has invented a printer that doesn't copy or print any copyright infringing text or images.


Holy shit. Capitalism fucks us over... again and again.

Forgot pic
>Big blue fucking people over
Welcome to the 1980's.
How do they achieve this? What if I copy something without having the printer on the internet?
I don't know really... It seems like a terrible idea. Maybe it has some local database too.

I assume that it is mostly used by companies, not by average consumers.

A leftist /tech/ board is great! Let's use it more, comrades!
Are any oldfags around who had the joy to come in contact with pic related or other micro electronics from real socialistic states? Sadly I was born too late to have a opinion on their products.

I read DDR lightbulbs were more durable than the western ones because they had no planned obsolesence; what do you think would our society today look like, if more elecronic products like smartphones were designed with a much longer lifetime in mind? Would the use-value of the products stay the same over time, or would it decrease with technical progress?

Public key cryptography integrated into chans. Comrade 03/03/2016 (Thu) 03:32:58 [Preview] No. 22 [Reply]
Has any IB software integrated public key generation? it will be very useful when people wants to share something specific on the board without others seeing.
I was actually thinking of this another day. But we need a secret board first IMO.
