who do you trust more with your privacy and personal data?

Apple or Google?

"Neither" is not allowed 😝 I'm curious as to which one is more trusted

@snowdusk_ yeah, Apple seems be be making a go out of just taking your money directly rather than trying to find sneaky ways to monetize you. Deploying things like encryption, sane browser behavior and USB ports that shut down to thwart law enforcement overreach.

I’m extracting myself from Google’s ecosystem but that doesn’t mean I’m blindly moving to iCloud et al. I’m actually replacing things like online storage with encrypted usb drives and streaming music with local MP3s.


@sconlan @snowdusk_

I use Fregal at the library website to download free and legal mp3s every week. They have a wishlist so I can cue up an album and get the whole thing over a few weeks. Doesn't take long before I've got more than I have time to listen to.

I also use the Live Music Archive to download concerts. I actually like the live music more than the studio recordings.

Only occasionally do I have to put up with Spotify ads. Like John Coltrane's lost album.
