Comment Re:The Death of Cyanogenmod.... (Score 1) 49

At least they are still alive as an organization. They still offer the full OS, but they now understand "the game" of phone manufacturers wanting some control over the OS.

If they can add some privacy and anti-bloat features to otherwise stock OS from a manufacturer that has decent marketshare, they might grow enough to influence Android in a better way for users.

You'd think device makers would want to focus on the hardware and supply side of things and contract out the OS and software parts - but so far they all [poorly] do it themselves.

Comment Basic Income (Score 1) 173

Assuming enough economic zones begin offering Basic Incomes to their citizens, businesses will design and price packages to evenly consume the monthly amount. Great for the businesses to have a constant flow of cash. Great for the payment processors to skim their percent off the top. Great for three letter agencies that can watch these transactions - either financial or data streams - to learn about devices / versions / locations and of course content. Arguably Great for consumers so they don't have to "think" about managing finances - $X coming in, $Y going out, who needs to save?

Not great for those who eschew consolidation of financial or informative power.
