Obrigado, EUSSR

Sem a União Europeia, quem é que obrigaria os consumidores a pagarem até mais 40 dólares nos telemóveis com o sistema operativo Android para estes virem pré-instalados com a suite de aplicações da Google e que sempre foi gratuita até hoje?

Gab sobre “The Good Censor”

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday Breitbart published a leaked internal Google briefing about the shift Silicon Valley is making towards more censorship online. This followed leaks earlier in the day from The Intercept, which show how Google is contradicting themselves in regards to the censored search engine they are building for the Chinese government. You can read the briefing that Breitbart published here: Google: “The Good Censor”.

On page 53 of this internal Google briefing, Gab.com is cited as a “challenger app” and notes how users are moving to Gab in response to the censorship of Silicon Valley. Google argues for a “European” approach to speech standards on the internet, favoring “civility” over freedom.

Silicon Valley has shown their true colors, which is why they recognize Gab.com as a threat to their control and dominance over the internet. They are rejecting the cherished internet ideals of liberty and free expression in exchange for censorship and partnerships with the Chinese government.

This is why Gab is winning and will continue to win. We are adding tens of thousands of new users every week, and our funding round is being completely powered by you, The People. In about 20 days we have raised $670,000 and will quickly meet our goal of $1.07m. We are hiring more engineers to speed up product development, make the site more user friendly, and build out our own infrastructure to escape the chains of Silicon Valley.

If you’re interested in investing and becoming a shareholder you can learn more here and invest as little as $252.

Thanks for your continued support!

Thanks and remember to speak freely!

Pela minha parte, não vou investir na plataforma Gab, apesar de ter lá um perfil pouco usado. Boa sorte à Gab, porque quanto às redes sociais bem comportadas (i.e., com aplicações nas App Stores de Apple e Google), estamos conversados.

Por favor vejam o artigo e vídeo no 1º link do texto acima e deixem a vossa opinião nos comentários.

Google is your big brother

Se o caso do despedimento do James Damore já não indiciava nada de positivo, cada vez fica mais claro que a Google virou polícia do pensamento.

Quando se pesquisa por «white couple» no Google:

A pergunta inevitável é se o Google usa o conteúdo de artigos de que não gosta para prejudicar o PageRank do site.
