Who deserves a “verified” badge? On Twitter, the issue has been surprisingly contentious. Last November, the company briefly verified the account of Jason Kessler, a white supremacist who organized the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA. Reaction to Kessler getting his badge was swift and negative, and Twitter used the occasion to say — as it now likes to do, all the time — that it would use the occasion to rethink everything. In the case of verification, the company would simply stop verifying anyone until it could say for certain what it meant to be verified. “Verification was meant to authenticate identity & voice but it is interpreted as an endorsement or an indicator of importance,” the company said in a tweet. “We recognize that we have created this confusion and need to resolve it. We have paused all general verifications while we work and will report back soon.” As I’ve written before, Twitter’s … [Read more...] about Instagram’s verification system is useful, fair, and Twitter should copy it
Which isp should i choose
Facebook, Google, and Twitter filed a legal brief on Monday, contending that Internet service providers (ISPs) such as Comcast or Verizon should not be able to censor content, while they reserve the right to censor content themselves. The Internet Association (IA), a trade association representing Facebook, Google, and Twitter, filed a legal brief with 22 state attorneys general to challenge the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) repeal of the agency’s 2015 net neutrality rule.The Internet Association believes that the country needs net neutrality because the broadband market is not competitive enough to allow consumers to switch between ISPs if they disagree with their policies. While the IA argues that ISPs have a monopolistic control over the broadband market, a Wall Street Journal article pointed out that Google drives 89 percent of Internet search, Google and Facebook absorbed 63 percent of online ad spending last year, and Google and Apple provide 99 … [Read more...] about Facebook, Google, Twitter Fight Net Neutrality: ISPs Shouldn’t Censor, But We Can
How to use a VPN on Android What with the introduction of mandatory metadata retention laws for ISPs in Australia, it's fast becoming common practice for digital citizens to employ VPNs – that is, virtual private networks – to conceal their online tracks from Big Brandis and Uncle Sam.It's not that I or other concerned citizens have anything to hide, it's just that other people don't have the right to log, view, and make judgement on every single thing I do online.Even if you don't think that the government will have any interest in what you're doing online, if you use your phone at internet cafes or wifi hotspots, a VPN is a great way to protect you from users on the same network that may have intentions that are less than pure.Further, if you're connecting to an open wifi network (that is, one that you don't type in a password to initially connect to), almost all of your data is out there floating on the airwaves, ready to be snapped up by any machine nearby.With … [Read more...] about Get VPN on Android devices in a few steps

Boast_Rider (Posts: 271; Member since: 14 Sep 2017) 4k isn't encoded on CPUs. Those phones would crap out if it actually was. There are proper encode blocks on the SoC for doing this stuff, which uses fixed function logic actually etched on the die to carry it out, much much more efficiently than a CPU ever could. posted on yesterday, 12:30 0 21. sgodsell (Posts: 5864; Member since: 16 Mar 2013) It's not the CPU per say.
