Happy to see that Canada is not doing badly in 14th place on the 2021 Press Freedom Index.
In-app tracker blocking? Goodness yes. Yes! TAKE MY MONEY.
Yesterday, CBC broadcasted the Rebellion episode on The Nature of Things. Interesting timing and interesting tone considering Biden making climate a priority again in the US, and Canada announcing new targets this week along with a fair amount of money for climate initiatives in the new budget. I'm glad to see this issue come to the forefront again, despite the pandemic!

I installed Microsoft Edge on my Mac yesterday to test something and was surprised to see that it uses an installer and the dreaded Microsoft Updater thingy. Also the app comes up full screen, hiding everything else. So not Mac-like. Apparently Microsoft is institutionally unable to make anything simple and self-contained. I uninstalled and cleaned up but now I feel like my laptop has cooties.
