Capitalism is quietly erasing the idea of private property. All products are effectively becoming rentals, and the companies can revoke your right to use them whenever they feel like it. It's becoming increasingly difficult to actually own anything. Media is streamed, and devices are locked from the users.

It's hilarious how all the things people were afraid of happening under communism are actually happening under capitalism.

When we watch TV, our TVs watch us back and track our habits. This practice has exploded recently since it hasn’t faced much public scrutiny...

For the general public to understand it and feel concerned, it will take some time 😕

Holy shit, Samsung Smart TVs straight up send "snippets" of things that you watch back home to "to provide you with customized Smart TV experiences".

samsung.com/us/account/privacy

Search that page for the text: "Your Smart TV transfers video snippets or TV tuner information in order to determine the programs watched."

Media were fast to jump to conclusion, ignoring science which couldn't explain the cause back then, but pointed out similar clusters elsewhere far from any nuclear installations and insisted nuclear is unrelated.

Today we know it was particular infection that caused it and was indeed unrelated.
