Comment of course (Score 1) 277

I have IoT devices. Are they on any botnets? I don't know, I don't spend any time checking.
You can't however initiate a connection to them from the outside(no port forwarding) and uPnP have been disabled.
Still if the manufacturer have failed somehow, and they have been infected from the factory or when they phone home, they could be running nasty stuff.

Comment Netflix streams had a good run (Score 1) 187

But I don't subscribe anymore because after their successful IP blocking this spring. All I can get access to now are my local version of Netflix. It sucked when they opened it and it still sucks. But I all fairness, it was going down hill for the American version too before I quit.
Well, it had a good run.
Right now I find plenty of stuff I like to see on Youtube.

Comment I use it all the time (Score 2) 495

But I must admit that I am being more and more annoyed with the Apple hardware choices. So much that I have been considering stop using Final Cut Pro and finding an alternative that can run on Windows. I guess it will be Adobe premiere pro even tough I hate their subscribtion based licenses.

Comment Re:Happening to people incoming to the US? (Score 1) 348

Well, no one is forcing me to travel to the US so it is not really a problem to deal with. There's plenty of other interesting places I can spend my vacation money.
There are quite a few people who already are opting out of visiting the US already because of all the crap implemented already.

Comment Re:The age of subscription services (Score 5, Insightful) 534

Some of my local newspapers starting blocking people who uses adblock, which I use because of the ads(duh) and the 3rd party tracking.
So I asked them: "If I subscribe and pay for access to your full site, will I then be able to see the site ad free as well as free from trackers?".
The answer was: "no".

Ok then, bye..
