Software giants who have seen the commercial malware targeting their users should look at this as a template for imposing consequences on this predatory industry. The "business" of human-rights-violations-as-a-service must be stamped out—before it grows. apple.com/newsroom/2021/11/a…

The @FT article on Biden's effort to bring down oil prices today could be described as, uh, "skeptical." ft.com/content/4e7f2590-1a4f…

inflation hits 6.2%—wiping out the raises of those lucky enough to even have a good job—parents are worried about the price of milk for their kids (when the shelves aren't empty) and the establishment is like:

The "great works" of Bezos-money are ruthlessly unimaginative. You could construct vertical gardens the size of skyscrapers—in the greatest cities of the world. You could colonize the ocean floor! Nothing is impossible. But Bezos, Bezos builds a boring baby cruise ship. $500M.

With respect, the docs say the "sequencer nodes" save the hashes (identifiers) produced by scanning people's eyes to your database. Apple does not, IIRC, catalog raw bio hashes—they're encrypted on-device (via enclave). The result of Worldcoin's "Phase 1" is an eyeball catalog.

So: @Telegram knows the below account is an impersonator, and I don't have an account with them. But they let this guy continue to post insane garbage—as "Official_EdwardSnowden"—and even a swastika, which Telegram has served to over 80,000 views. Great job, guys. Just super.
No. If you see one, it's fake.

I have resorted to burning Pokémon cards as a punishment when my kid doesn’t do basic stuff he has to do.
