You may have heard about the new-ish web browser in town: Brave.
The trouble is that it’s a bit hard to wrap one’s head around exactly how Brave is different – and supposedly better.
So, when a dude like that says, “Hey, I have an idea for a better browser!” it’s probably a good idea to at least take a good look at it…
Well, the results are in: I’m keeping my Q-Link!
While nothing really happened at first, I did actually notice certain improvements when using this crazy thing.
I still can’t explain how it works, or if it’s just the placebo effect. But, whatever it’s doing, it’s doing it well… at least for me and several other people I know!
For an intro, see my first vid on the Q-Link and various studies and tests done with it.
Oh dear god, make it stop…
It’s time once again for The Great YouTube Algorithm Tweaking!
This time, that means even more nonsense, even fewer recommended videos that you actually want to watch, and just general chaos.
Of course, what most people are concerned about is the “curating” of content. Naturally, it’s a bit more complicated than that…
Until now, apps were for smartphones and tablets. But that’s all about to change with PWAs: Progressive Web Apps!
PWAs are a new(ish) type of app that is web-based.
That means you can use the same app on your phone, tablet, desktop, or laptop – whether you use Windows, linux, or Mac.
Progressive Web Apps also work differently than normal apps, making them a bit more secure and privacy-oriented than traditional native apps.
So, what are these things and how do they work?
Another new version of Windows 10!
A new update to Windows 10 was released a few weeks back, and this time the roll-out seemed to be way smoother than the last version – which is nice.
I got the update fairly quickly this time around, which almost never happens.
The update went off without a hitch. Naturally, I immediately started poking around to see what changed.
Well, not much… But as usual, there are a few things to re-tweak!
It seems there are some common misconceptions out there about what 5G actually is and how it will work.
I wasn’t planning on another 5G video, but alas…
Much of this confusion is totally understandable since info is hard to come by despite the fact that 5G and IoT is the talk of the town!
Near the end I also toss in a few recent news stories related to troubles that 5G is causing or will cause.
You’d think they’d check this stuff out first BEFORE spending all that money… But then you remember that this is Planet Earth in 2019.
Ah yes, the Mobile Revolution!
In desktop web browsers, you generally get a web inspector / debug console that lets you do all kinds of fun stuff, including debugging your JS code.
But on mobile, well, no such luck.
In fact, most mobile browsers give you absolutely nothing! Fortunately, there’s a neat trick that fixes everything.
Many people have asked me about the Q-Link and other similar gizmos.
You’re supposed to simply wear them, and they strengthen your body via “resonance” such that you are even protected from the negative effects of all kinds of EMF.
Well, I used to think that was nuts… Until my doctor friend said she loves hers!
So, I decided to take another look. It had been almost 20 years since I first decided they were just snake oil. Plus, I suppose with age comes the knowledge that we’re not always as smart as we think we are.
It turns out that the result of using these things is actually rather interesting…
I’m always amazed at how many people these days still use webmail.
From Gmail to Yahoo Mail, it seems everyone enjoys the convenience of no crappy e-mail program, easily accessible e-mail from any device, and free data storage In the CloudTM.
In the case of Gmail, you can even use the same e-mail account on your smartphone. Yay, even more data for Google!
Naturally, there are huge drawbacks to the webmail approach, the biggest of which is privacy.
From Day One, webmail has been hoovering up all kinds of data. Recently, the world discovered that – duh – it’s worse than we think!
There’s a lot happening on the 5G front.
From petitions, to cities temporarily halting their 5G rollout, to senate hearings, to nation-wide days of protest, things have been pretty busy!
In this video, I talk about one particular petition that I think summarizes everything quite nicely.
I also flesh out some details and connect some dots to show just how ridiculous the whole charade really is!
