YouTube is testing server-side ad injection to counteract ad blockers
  • I'm with you so I pay a subscription (it is literally the only one I pay for) but even that is not enough as the enshittification is encouraging creators to release special videos just for their own channel subscribers now. So I need subscriptions on top of my subscriptions (dawg).

    YouTube (Google/Alphabet) is a monopoly that needs to be smashed to itty bits.

  • Many such cases
  • There's also the games trap as MS gobbles up development studios left and right. I'm guessing that's not a coincidence.

    I'm personally not a fan of Steam, but HUGE props to Valve for thinking ahead.

  • Microsoft is reworking Recall after researchers point out its security problems
  • I don't know about impossible. I could see this working on a Linux distro with a local model doing all the work and storing it encrypted locally. Buuuuuut, it still feels risky! That's a giant traunch of juicy, searchable data that just begs to be stolen.

  • Microsoft is reworking Recall after researchers point out its security problems
  • The AI scans all those screenshots visually and tags them for search later so, for example, an artist could open a file they don't remember the location of from thousands of folders by typing text describing it. That's actually awesome. I imagine lots of people could come up with really useful ways to use something like that. I mean, if it wasn't an Orwellian nightmare.

  • Microsoft is reworking Recall after researchers point out its security problems
  • Right, but the problem is users should be able to use the feature and be confident it's secure. It most assuredly is not as multiple people with access to the pilot program have demonstrated.

    I bet some lower level folks within MS knew this would be an issue and screamed into the void about it.

  • Windows 11's new AI feature makes it way too easy to steal everything you viewed or typed
  • No actually they nailed it, Windows 11 is losing ground to Windows 10 lol! (Sorry about the crap source. There are plenty of others from the same time frame, I'm just lazy. )

    My personal guess is that's just because people aren't buying new systems right now, but that's just a guess.

    We'll see if MS holds strong on their Windows 10 phase out date, though. There will be a LOT of pressure to delay that, I think.

  • Any way to zoom in on comment pics?

    I can press on main post pics and take a closer look, but comment pictures not only don't zoom in, but if there's a way to open them in a browser for a closer look, I can't find it.

    I'm sure this has been addressed before, but I can't find any information, sorry and thanks you!


    Hell yes!

    This is my original Genesis I bought in like '92(?) with one of my first paychecks from my first job at Chuck E. Cheese's (yes I'm fucking old).

    I thought I sold it years ago but found out it was sitting in one of my mom's closets, so I bought a few cheap carts and hooked it up to a crt I keep around for just such occasions. It still works!

    I am so goddamn happy, I just had to share and I figured you all might appreciate that.
