    Twitter Files Revelations for Big Tech, MSM & Politicians

    Twitter Files Revelations for Big Tech, MSM & Politicians

    Twitter Files announcements are huge revelations for Big Tech, MSM & Politicians and should wake people up if they can leave their politics at the door for 10 minutes. Everything today is about messaging and controlling the narrative. Why can’t the narrative be the narrative? We will see if Musk can find where the rest of the dead bodies are buried.

    Hive App Shuts down Servers for Security Issues

    Hive App Shuts down Servers for Security Issues

    German-based Hive App shut down servers for security issues because it reportedly leaked user data like crazy. Instead of patching it on the fly, they shut the service down and left users hanging because it was full of holes, security researchers reported. While it may have become a Twitter proxy the platform has a ways to go with the hive team announcing the shutdown ironically on Twitter.

    Is Apple Helping the Chinese Government

    Is Apple Helping the Chinese Government

    Has Apple helped suppress the Chinese people and, in turn, helped the Chinese Government in recent crackdowns? By limiting certain functions of the Apple phone. One has to begin to wonder if they only like controlled speech when there are rumors that they may remove support for Twitter on the iPhone. One may start to question the value of the iOS ecosphere when one starts to hear this combined with the actions in China.

V4V is a model I hope you all start to embrace in all of the Podcasting 2.0 shows you support. Meanwhile, at Tesla, many prior employees are looking for a job.

    Broadband Cost in America

    Broadband Cost in America

    I complain about the Broadband cost I pay for not only my home internet but my office internet, which is insane. I am not alone; compared to other modern places, we pay top dollar for Internet services. The linked report below breaks down what people are paying the providers. I do not think you will be surprised.

    FTX's 16 Billion Dollar Ponzi Scheme

    FTX's 16 Billion Dollar Ponzi Scheme

    Based on preliminary reports, many people should be imprisoned for a very long time over the FTX’s apparent Ponzi scheme, which allegedly lost 16 billion dollars in investors’ crypto investments. The financials are enough to make those that have read them go insane. Of course, with a lot of the companies offshore, we will see how much actual prosecution can actually be done.
