"Americans who can afford an iPhone have greater
privacy from government surveillance of their movements than the tens of millions Americans
using Android devices."
So they're saying that people only buy Android devices because they're too poor to buy Apple devices? I doubt that was the intention, but it sure came across that way. LMAO
It wouldn't be a bad thing for Twitter, Facebook, etc. to be forced to block users in MAGA / Q / misinformation bastions like Texas.
Crafty people would use VPNs to get around it, but it could help with the "friends spreading bullshit" problem on sites such as Facebook.
The fact that Biden is dragging his feet on some of these things is concerning. I get that the pandemic response takes priority, but he has less than 2 years until he likely loses the Senate or the House, or god forbid both. It's not like he doesn't have people to find and vet FCC commissioners, USPS Board of Governors members, etc.
Do you really think most of them care? They want to be able to get a pet judge to sign off on a half-assed warrant so they can go fishing. If they have to go through 'normal' channels, there's a chance that Facebook or whomever it is will push back.
"And while that same law says the the government can take back taxpayer funding "equal to 1.89 times the average amount of support per location received in the support area," plus another ten percent of the carrier's total funding in that area, that often never happens."
If this is correct, it shouldn't even be that hard to get the money back. All they have to do is enforce the law. That's what pisses me off more than anything - they have the legal means to claw that money back (plus more), yet they don't do a damn thing about it.
