  • Adtech | Irreal
    to your browser all of which are tracking you across the Internet Some are being reused by the NSA to track people of interest It s even worse on mobile where all this extra cruft uses up your expensive bandwidth and depletes your battery charge Dean Murphy the developer of Crystal an iOS 9 app that blocks tracking ads and beacons has run some benchmarks He finds that blocking trackers makes pages load 3 9 times faster and use 53 less bandwidth Plugins like Ghostery Privacy Badger or Crystal seem like an ideal solution to me because they don t block ads per se only tracking ads so you re keeping faith with the content providers as long as they don t abuse your trust Sadly the content providers are getting ripped off by adtech too Don Marti explains adtech fraud in an excellent post that shows how content providers and advertisers are getting ripped off while we users are having our privacy violated You really should read it but the TL DR is that the adtech vultures drop a tracking cookie on you when you visit a high quality site such as The Atlantic but actually serve the ad when you visit a low quality site with cheaper ad rates collect your interests in the high rent neighborhoods but sell you the goods in the sketchier parts of town As I said at the beginning I don t mind ads but that doesn t mean that I m open to having my behavior tracked by mostly unsavory ad networks that feel entitled to run arbitrary scripts on my computer without my knowledge or consent Until they clean up their act Ghostery will block their privacy invading scripts Marco Arment says that even if some publishers experience difficulties that doesn

  • Law Enforcement Lies about Encryption | Irreal
    of the lost information resulting from encryption on smart phones is obtainable elsewhere For example one complaint is that the recent location data collected by the iPhone is unavailable on encrypted phones but is available from the phone carriers because the phones log onto cell sites and thereby reveal their location Although law enforcement assures us that their concern is about being able to access data for which they ve obtained a warrant Wheeler s article suggests that in fact their concern is about losing access to data for which they don t have a warrant and therefore a right to see Wheeler says the real issue is that the encryption makes it harder to do searches without getting a warrant for which they often don t have sufficient evidence She says If law enforcement wants to retain this access they should be honest about what they might lose and why every iPhone user should be asked to carry a phone that is susceptible to criminal targeting as a result She makes the final point that smart phone encryption offers real benefits to everyone not just pedophiles and that the government should recognize that and stop pretending Apple is benefiting only law breakers It s a good article and definitely worth reading This entry was posted in General and tagged Privacy Bookmark the permalink Crazy but Right Org Mode Basics Structuring Notes Search for Recent Posts Elisp Summary Emacs for Prose FISA Abandons the Fourth Amendment Again Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Recent Comments Mike Zamansky on Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola Phil on How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Sebastian Christ on European Quotation Marks NoonianAtall on A Hyper Key on Any USB Keyboard Kris
