Do you know how easy it is to remove and replace the advertising in tube carriages?

On most tube lines they are 60.8cm x 28cm (apparently) and leave anything important on your artwork at least 4cm from the edges coz that will get covered by the frame ;)

Amputee in France ‘betrayed’ by photograph of his disability found displayed on packets

A man living in France has lodged a complaint after claiming an image of his amputated leg was used as a health warning on tobacco packets through the EU without his permission.

The sixty-year old man, who lives in Metz, eastern France, was reported to be stunned after finding a picture of his amputated leg on a packet of rolling tobacco, alongside the message “smoking clogs your arteries”.

Transport ministry’s cycling helmet campaign called out by SPD’s women’s wing

An advertising campaign by Germany’s transport ministry to persuade cyclists to wear helmets has sparked accusations of sexism, as it features a model wearing just a helmet and underwear.

With the slogan “Looks like shit. But saves my life”, the advert features a profile-shot of Alicija Köhler, a competitor in the gameshow Germany’s Next Topmodel sporting a violet coloured helmet and a lacy bra.

Which websites featured on the Federation have the worst privacy?


My last post highlighted how ticking the OEmbed box to add a website picture to a post can compromise Federation users if it contains a tracker.

I also mentioned tools, like Disconnect, we could use to detect websites which track their users. In this post I reveal some of the most popular reference websites on the Federation with low privacy and high tracking rates.

I believe Federation users should consider not embedding, or at least warning their readers about the surveillance techniques carried out by these sites.

A Princeton University study identified almost a million websites that track their users. Here are just 5 examples of websites whose stories are commonly quoted on the Federation:

KARE-TV was first alerted to the "parking lot price switch" by Target shopper Miranda Artz, who noticed the phenomenon while buying an electric razor last spring.

"It was $99.99 in the store, so I bought it," said Artz - only to find that the product was $69.99 on her Target app in the parking lot.

Artz went back in the store to deal with customer service, and noticed that the price had jumped back to $99.99. When she went back out to the parking lot, she noticed the price drop again, so she took a screenshot to show customer service, which then refunded the difference.

Privacy tip #4

Turn off location. PART 2




[]BROWSERS

Apart from Edge, which has to be tweaked from the W10 OS, most browsers can have their location services disabled through their menu. I cannot list EVERY browser in existence here, as I have a life. If you have other browser location tweaks, please share.

1. Click on Chrome’s menu and select the cog symbol – SETTINGS
2. Click the SHOW ADVANCED SETTINGS link at the bottom. Don’t be afraid of the ‘advanced’ implication, this has been worded to scare off timid sheep from reclaiming their privacy.
3. Click the CONTENT SETTINGS button under PRIVACY. While we’re here, consider unchecking the boxes urging us to use web services to ‘resolve navigational errors’ or ‘prediction services’ to auto complete our searches. This is just more telemetry.

When you use FB and upload your contacts to FB, you are allowing them to target people like me (conscientious FB objector) without our permission.

To test the shadow information finding, the researchers tried a real-world test. They uploaded a list of hundreds of landline numbers from Northeastern University. These are numbers that people who work for Northeastern are unlikely to have added to their accounts, though it’s very likely that the numbers would be in the address books of people who know them and who might have uploaded them to Facebook in order to “find friends.” The researchers found that many of these numbers could be targeted with ads, and when they ran an ad campaign, the ad turned up in the Facebook news feed of Mislove, whose landline had been included in the file; I confirmed this with my own test targeting his landline number.

“It’s likely that he was shown the ad because someone else uploaded his contact information via contact importer,” a Facebook spokesperson confirmed when I told the company about ... Show more...
 
Advertising and venture capital is corrupting the internet to the point where it's become mainly an elaborate shell game with no real purpose.

Click stats, AI features and even some brick-and-mortar shops are being faked in order to con advertisers and investors into paying huge sums of money:

Why It’s OK to Block Ads (James Williams, 2015)


(...) Arguments against ad blocking tend to focus on the potential economic harms. Because advertising is the dominant business model on the internet, if everyone used ad-blocking software then wouldn’t it all collapse? If you don’t see (or, in some cases, click on) ads, aren’t you getting the services you currently think of as “free”—actually for free? By using ad-blocking, aren’t you violating an agreement you have with online service providers to let them show you ads in exchange for their services? Isn’t ad blocking, as the industry magazine AdAge has called it, “robbery, plain and simple”?

(...) There is no paid version of Facebook. Most websites don’t give you the option to pay them directly. Meaningful governmental regulation is unlikely. And the “attention economy” can’t fix itself: players in the ecosystem don’t even measure the things they’d need to measure in order to monetize our intentions rather than our... Show more...
