    As privacy concerns grow, companies like Google and Facebook that rely on data collection and advertising for revenue are increasingly in the spotlight. But is it really possible to give up Google's vast range of services? Here are my recommended alternatives. Over the past two years, I've been switching between a succession of iPhones and a series of Android devices, using each for an extended amount of time. Spending months with each mobile platform has been a tremendously useful exercise, helping me understand the strengths and weaknesses of the two dominant smartphone options.

  • So then don't produce audio that's commercially viable. Problem solved.

    Full title: So then, conservatives, don't produce audio that's commercially viable. Simple! Problem solved. Not sure if you heard, but Google is going to be cutting off content that they deem to be "not commercially viable". Of course we all know that means cutting off conservatives. Yes, I'm a conservative, and no, I'm not worried one bit. Why would I be worried, I already don't produce anything commercially viable. Oh, you want to say that what I produced wasn't valuable? My personal favorite is the book The Colored Patriots of the American Revolution, which according to the Archive page has...
