Finally found out how to get rid of those pesky ads on my "smart" TV and remove all of the Google/Sony spyware crap...
Couldn't find this info anywhere online for my TV (Sony XBR 900E), but you can disable each offending apk/process by running this adb command from shell. Should work for any other Android TV as well.
adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.nameofspyware.here
Ah yes, people on birbsite freaking out about Netflix knowing their viewing habits. Quite hilarious.
But Google reading all your email and correlating it with all the ad data they have is okay.
Or Facebook drawing a neat social graph across all your friends, family and interests, while retaining the messages you never submitted.
Brave new world.

The discussion seems to revovle around if Patreon is good or evil... like Google once was Good and now is evil. Also if it can support artists enough to let them live from their art.
The truth is that Patreon is a private company, not a kind mother, and artists are artisans with their own little businesses. Small businesse are always exploited by larger businesses - it's all about power, and the fact that Patreon can change the agreement as they see fit just exemplifies what was always a fact.
Please boost! This kind of opportunity to topple a near monopoly with FLOSS does not come often!
Are there other FLOSS #crowdfunding platforms?
Speaking of 20th century pulpy art, this might be my favourite. The composition and the pose are swish-as-hell. Gang Moll by Rudy Nappi, 1923.
