Mozilla’s now director of public policy once asked me, with a straight face, why I was giving them a hard time and holding Mozilla to a higher standard: “we’re just another Silicon Valley tech company.”

But that’s not what you tell people publicly, is it, Mozilla?

Still, it’s time y’all got this.

Mozilla is a half-billion-dollar for-profit corporation – whose CEO makes >$3M/yr – that has a foundation do its PR.

How to Kill the Brand “Linux”, Associating It With an Attack on Human Rights


It seems clear that the so-called ‘Linux’ Foundation is just misusing the brand (“Linux”) like an asswipe or a wet tissue; by throwing the label Linux into controversial things that have nothing to do with Linux itself the Foundation basically alienates potential adopters

A bunch of puff pieces (paid-for fluff sponsored by the Linux Foundation for IBM and Microsoft, to be filed under “innovation” rather than “lobbying” or “advertising”) confirm our suspicions. It basically boils down to a whole lot of buzzwords or hype waves.

Facebook Implements Deradicalization Program For ‘Extremists’ In The Form Of Annoying Pop-Ups


Facebook linked a former extremist group, Life After Hate, who say they engage in the deradicalization of far-right extremists. The tech giant claimed that “group leaders may lie or brainwash their followers with false information” and take advantage of group members to do violent or illegal activities. Facebook has also linked the Centre for Analysis of the Radical Right (CARR), a U.K. research center that focuses on far-right activities. CARR has listed a number of far-right symbols, including ancient Germanic runes to cartoon Pepe the Frog.

Android App Bundles are replacing APKs – why it matters


This definitely sounds great, at least for users, but it does come with one subtle fine print. All of these features are available only on Google Play Store, which sounds like a no-brainer but has important implications for some Android developers. Unlike APKs, Android App Bundles cannot exist outside of Google Play and cannot be distributed outside of it. This means that developers switching from APK to App Bundles can no longer provide the exact same package or experience on other app sources unless they opt to maintain a separate APK version. This naturally puts third-party app stores at a disadvantage, but Google will most likely play up the Play Store’s security as a major reason to avoid those sources anyway.

REVEALED: Google & USAID Funded Wuhan Collaborator Peter Daszak’s Virus Experiments For Over A Decade.


Daszak served on the wildly compromised World Health Organization’s (WHO) COVID-19 investigation team. He championed the efforts to “debunk” the lab origin theory of the virus, despite mounting support for the claim first made by experts on Steve Bannon’s War Room: Pandemic podcast in early January 2020.

Left-wing websites masquerading as “fact checkers” still call the lab theory “false,” despite the shift in tone from the Biden regime, leading world scientists, and intelligence officials.

Lawsuit: California Government Colluded with Twitter on Censorship


According to O’Handley’s lawsuit, brought by Harmeet Dhillon’s legal nonprofit, the Center for American Liberty, Twitter made its decision at the direction of California’s Office of Elections Cybersecurity, a bureau which was set up in 2018 to “educate voters” with “valid information” on elections.

Facebook’s new low: Paying for a study that says Apple fails at privacy


Facebook truly, really hates the new privacy measures Apple introduced with iOS 14.5 last month. Called App Tracking Transparency, the new framework makes it mandatory for apps to explicitly ask user permission in order to track them – an activity that serves as the foundation for serving targeted ads. Facebook funded research with the sole purpose of criticizing the new privacy guidelines, and how it is harmful to both users as well as the competition.

Tech groups sue DeSantis over social media bill


“The Act is a frontal assault on the First Amendment and an extraordinary intervention by government in the free marketplace of ideas that would be unthinkable for traditional media, book sellers, lending libraries or newsstands,” the lawsuit states.

“Constitutional protections are not a one-way street,” said DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw on Thursday. “On the contrary, there is a delicate balance in ensuring that citizens and businesses alike are protected against government overreach, but also, that all consumers are protected against abusive, discriminatory, and/or deceptive business practices.”

Facebook’s Nick Clegg Claims Company Loves Free Expression and ‘American Values’


In a recent op-ed published by CNBC, Facebook Vice President of Global Affairs Nick Clegg outlined the values that Facebook believes it must promote worldwide. Clegg stated that Facebook focuses on promoting American values such as “free expression,” a statement many would find ironic considering the allegations of censorship Facebook has faced in recent years.

“The US risks becoming a nation that exports incredible technologies, but fails to export its values,” Clegg wrote in the op-ed.
