How is it possible that you believe that one is true but not think about the other? Meat consumption and its effects need to be made much more clear to the public, it seems.

I watched a video by Vox today where they said that the overwhelming majority of the water usage in very dry areas of the USA is used to irrigate feeding material for cows: Who’s really using up the water in the American West?

Should’ve used a crying FIFA executive with lots of money bags around him instead.

that’s actually not that much for 250 movies in 1080p+10bit… x265 is crazy efficient!

Yeah, they didn’t research properly. They just visited the website and ‘researched’ what happens when you click their links.

I can’t just remove the “hard drive” can I?

Yes, you can. You could desolder the flash chips which are used to store your data.

You could also pry the phone open and destroy the flash chip.

Newer Android phones thankfully have full disk encryption which makes recovery without a PIN nearly impossible.

Or you could literally ask any data center provider to give you DoS protection. Many offer this as a premium service and others have contracts where you get third party services like the ones mentioned by you for less money.

KeePassXC can be synced via Syncthing and works very well that way.

KeePassXC for solo and Vaultwarden (Bitwarden clone in Rust) for teams.

I would download everything if it meant that I don’t steal it from someone. Illegally downloading copies of something doesn’t make the original disappear.

You can do GPG by hand but if there’s one typo there’s a problem. Convince them to buy a smartphone if you want to communicate in an encrypted way; or write an app for the fliphone.

Which phone is it?

😀 – Most capitalist or capital oriented people apparently rather want to lose knowledge than to preserve it. There’s a lot of national archives but they only preserve knowledge they find “worthy”. What’s worthy in 100 years can’t be determined now, so I guess preserving knowledge at all costs is certainly worth doing, right?

let’s hope nobody creates one for you without your knowledge ;)

ugh, that’s tedious. Can’t I just hit up my Landesdatenschutzbeauftragter on Mastodon?

nvm, they have an online form. “Ihre Beschwerde wurde versandt.” (your complaint has been registered)

one of the most tedious process in the world, which probably discourage most users.

I bet that’s intentional.

Another day, another LinkedIn leak. Didn’t they have millions of people’s personal data leaked last year or so?

Was that before or after Microsoft bought them? Does Microsoft have leaks often?

Kind of a shame there isn’t a real alternative.

There’s Xing. Did they leak data yet? I have accounts on both services so I can stalk other people or remember their names when I only see them a couple of times a year.

PSA: LinkedIn just leaked my birthday (and it could leak yours)
Even though I set the visibility of my birthday to "Only you", people were messaged on my birthday that it occurred. ![screenshot of birthday setting](https://feddit.de/pictrs/image/e674a522-9851-40f2-900a-899599bf8b94.png) Keep in mind that even though [LinkedIn states that other people are not messaged when you set this to a private setting](https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/a550097?lang=en), they still are. Obviously another capitalist industrial shenanigan from one of our favourite data krakens, Microsoft.

However, you’re naked in the eyes of the VPN provider and they can easily sell your data to give you away as a person of interest because you might have something to hide for using a VPN…
