So far this year, a blind person has better vision than me.

I'm impressed that a company the size of WalMart can give such a terrible experience on the web.

If someone is selling you hardware that has a kill switch for a camera, network access, etc. you still have to trust them that it works.

Since I'm on a whining roll...I'm at a complete loss how I can justify to myself spending $649 on a phone when not only there are no reviews (it says it's in stock but not available until Q4 2019) but when consumers don't know:
display size,
memory,
camera (will it even do video),
battery.

Goal for this year: dump Apple and Amazon.

If everyday you say the world is ending, it doesn't mean that you were right when that day comes.

Dear Apple,

I've tried to stick with you. But seriously, $1000 for a monitor stand? Because the monitor just doesn't come with one?

NOTHING IS 100% SECURE!

1 min read

Maybe the headline should read "NOTHING IS SECURE!"?

But, let's go through this one more time.

NOTHING IS 100% SECURE!

Most are not even 99% secure.

How can the headline possibly be difficult to understand?

It doesn't matter what a company says, you are NEVER 100% secure.

Companies lie and deceive.  Some don't and try to secure everything, but can't 100%.

I don't care who uses the service or tool or device.

The phone doesn't matter, the crypto-currency doesn't matter, the operating system doesn't matter, the license or philosophy doesn't matter.

I don't care who tells you otherwise.

I don't care how many times they say they use "military grade encryption" or "enterprise encryption".

WAKE UP!
