Wow, maybe if you had been paying attention, you would understand that the reason government is "breaking down" is because of unchecked corporate power. It is in the best interest of multinational corporations to "break down" any barriers in their way to profits at all cost, regardless of human or environmental well being.

What's the next clue?

password reuse on low risk websites is necessary in order for users to be able to remember unique and high entropy codes

Really? Wow, you had to do a study to "prove" what any dingbat(including myself) has known for years, using that rarefied skill called "Common Sense".

Most of my property is xeriscaped.

The rest is planter boxes with vegetables.
I manually, by hand, water my drought tolerant plants maybe twice a week.
I manually, by hand, water my planter box vegetables, herbs, fruit, etc usually daily.

What I have to water isn't huge, but it takes a while.
I actually enjoy watering. I get to see my plants, check how they are doing, etc;
I actually check the soil and how moist it is, see what bugs there are/aren't, the status of my garden in general as I water.

Maybe I'm odd but I actually like doing it.

I would assume if someone had a massive garden/yard then doing some kind of app based control of multiple drip systems, etc would be the way to go, but for me I would rather Keep It Simple Stupid. Plus I don't have to dick around with all of the management that comes with drip systems, sprinklers(nightmare), apps, phone settings, blah, blah, blah.

For me the garden is a way to get away from tech for a while.
