However, it is only possible to install Windows 11 on hardware that is UEFI, Secure Boot, and TPM 2.0 — and its the 2.0 that’s important — enabled. This killer combo of hardware requirements excludes swathes of computers made more than 5 or 6 years ago, including some of Microsoft’s own.

What’s the difference between a user and a customer?

Let Brave illustrate with its sites for:

Users: brave.com/
Customers: basicattentiontoken.org/

A user is what you sell to your customers.

My kids are asking me for #KDE on their laptop because they want wobbly windows that shatter into pieces when you close them. Do not underestimate the power of these kind of features to win users and make computing and tinkering fun!

Get punked! You never used Windows, you only rented it from Microsoft. They decide how you do your computing. Use a free software operating system.

P.S. See that next screenshots attached.

We're told that your last opportunity to opt out of the surveillance network known as Amazon Sidewalk is on June 8th. For best results, we recommend the tried and true method of smashing any Alexa or Echo devices you have with a hammer.

Folks on Twitter: if you notice that my account has unfollowed yours, please don’t take it personally: I’m running a browser extension to unfollow all accounts.

Why?

Read: Hell site (ar.al/2021/05/10/hell-site/)

TL; DR: I’ve had enough of dealing with shit-stirring asshole algorithms :)

I’ll continue to forward posts from my own Mastodon instance so, if you want to keep up with Small Tech/Web stuff, you can still follow my posts, if you like. (I’ll also read replies/respond when I can.)

WAT?! You're telling me there has been a team at Facebook designing and implementing this feature, and not one person has stood up and asked:

"Uhm, isn't that super creepy, even for us?"

Everyone gangsta until youtube turns on ads for all videos.
P.S. You dont get the 40% cut unless you have 4,000 valid public watch hours in the last 12 months.

YouTube’s right to monetize: has the right to all content on the platform and may appear on videos from channels not in the YouTube Partner Program.
