well, stop using my channels. I'm using channels 1-16 to stream 4k video from my computer to the TV next to it.
because if their fine was higher, they would close up shop and go into some other business. it's the only way they will keep on "serving" their customers.
Exactly. They REALLY like being able to watch everybody, automatically, from their desk. And that everybody else can't tell what they are doing.
You'll think they will go back to the 'old' ways they used to find terrorists. But no, they won't, because it 's not cool. Instead, they will go for hacking everyone's personal computers. Worldwide.
lipstick was 3 releases ago. now they are left with shoe polish.
Yeah. If you post on Slashdot you get picked up by men in white coats instead of black helicopters.
640kb ought to be enough for everyone!

except you still have to live surrounded by a whole bunch of destitute people, and perhaps also lose your job, and the money you have saved also gets devalued.
when the economy crashes, it takes everyone connected to it along for the ride.

They are investing in this because the last upgrade cycle is over [HD flatscreens and blu-ray players]. Now sales are down because people are mainly just buying replacement units when they break, not new units into homes that don't already have one.

Google doesn't only derive value from the information they gather about you by displaying you targeted online ads.
There are reasons why every ad network offering an 'opt-out' only stop displaying you targeted ads while it is in effect. And none of them are for your benefit.
Reading Google's opt-out page at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en, it only talks about opting out of "interest-based ads". As in, google still tracks you, only they don't apply the tracking information when presenting ads to you. Which is EXACTLY what I said.
And note, the google page completely ignores the entire idea of not tracking the user. That is simply not an option they will ever consider permitting the user to choose.
Yes. Unfortunately, you and the one other person in the US that are doing this, are easily distinguished [and thus, tracked] from everybody else by doing this.
Everybody else who doesn't have buckets of time trying to avoid being tracked [and still failing] are tracked in the more conventional fashion.
the free market solves all problems.
