Amazons "Alexa" als Zeugin?. Staat will "Smart Home"-Daten abgreifen.
Mit der Beschneidung der Chrome-API für Werbeblocker nutzt Google seine quasi Monopolstellung auf dem Browser-Markt aus. Die Antwort kann nur sein: Weg von Chrome und weg von Google. Deren Produkte existieren nur, um die Nutzer zu melken.

Well researched New York Times article on how the food we eat impacts climate change and what are the better options.
Just saw an interesting post from a major cosmetics manufacturer:

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".
