Comment: Can someone blow the lid on Android Apps? (Score 5, Insightful) 191

Each time an App wanted to update in the last 6 months, it was to increase its access to areas of my Samsung phone that I thought were completely un-necessary for it to work properly. Makes you wonder who in the Google Store is rubber stamping the ok on such Apps! When will privacy groups wake up and start lawsuits against App makers and/or Google? Maybe it will fist require a popular tech website to run a Top-10 Worst Privacy Infringing Apps in Google store.

Thanks but my point is that if you remove/hide the self-obsessed bloggers, the narcissists and those who plainly dislike your posts (they will read it but won't thumb it up or comment) then your Newsfeed will remain almost static. The "chronological" thing is me saying that since Facebook displays posts in order of popularity then when you recently post something, it will end up at the bottom of the Newsfeed pile. It's hard to blame a friend for not seeing your post when it's Facebook's fault for making it hard to find. Facebook truly sucks.

After hiding those who consistently (long-term) wouldn't participate on my posts, may it be in terms of comments or thumbs-up, I've proceeded to also hide friends who only "share" links such as those from 9gag or Youtube or Facebook pages. Problem now is that my Newsfeed looks nearly static for 24-36 hours! Facebook is indeed dead to me but that's after removing the selfish/narcissists and true time-wasters.

I'm now wondering why I even joined Facebook. It used to be ok and then one day the Newsfeed was changed to default to "Most popular" posts rather than chronological. So much for not putting a view-count on your Profile page or under your photos because somehow management didn't want Facebook to be some MySpace popularity contest sh***y website. That new Newsfeed is a true contradiction to that ancient moto.

I've been a loyal Nokia fan during their "it" days. Heck I still have my Nokia 5800XM with a 2.5G simcard in it! Bloody thing is locked to Orange. My first great disappointment was with the N810. Everything took ages to load even the GPS. Everything sort-of needed a user manual to operate and the battery life was horrendous. Nokia's lack of quickly getting onboard with touchscreen (on their normal phones) alienated me and in the end I went for an iPhone. Problem solved! There was no way I was going to buy one of their Windows Phone. Windows? Seriously!!!

Am sure this new model is an "Android Metoo" phone. Goodluck with that and goodbye.

Spying on the Indonesian President (by Australians) or German Chancellor (by NSA and GCHQ) raises serious questions:
- Under terrorism and national security threat you can ask yourself:
- Are they on a terrorist watchlist?
- Implying that they are linked to terrorist organisations?
- Implying that they are behind terror activities and murders?
-If not under terrorism surveillance, then this raises even more sinister and darker questions:
- To get insider knowledge so those involved in this spying can benefit financially on the stockmarket?
- Collect information for blackmail? This way the US can pass laws in Europe knowing it will have full support of Germany?
- To steal their credit card and banking details?

The UK, US and Australian governments have really no excuse for what they did.

Quite pathetic that they would look for such an excuse to carry on with their intrusive and malicious spying. I thought they were looking for terrorists only, have the goal posts moved? What are they not telling us? Is it about making money on the stockmarket by using information stolen from the emails exchanged between companies?

To me, the NSA and GCHQ are the real creepy perverts for eavesdropping and storing my life on their servers as if I have no rights to privacy. I wonder how many paedos they have caught using their spying en masse?

It is as they put it, their contribution in the fight against total surveillance and the undermining of democracy. Here's a CNN video interview of the game developers."
