Here you can find notes about things I discover or learn but are not (yet) worth a full-length post.

Yesterday, noyb filed a formal GDPR complaint against Google because of the Tracking ID not being deletable and it being opt-out instead of opt-in. This way, users are not able to give their consent before being tracked. I’m really curious if they will succeed here.

iOS also has a “Limit Ad Tracking” checkbox hidden inside the privacy settings and I cannot remember if it is enabled by default. If not then wouldn’t such a complaint also be valid here?

@basil That’s pretty much also my approach to comments. Notes for shortform comments to blog posts, full-length posts when I want to write a bit more as comment, but otherwise comment on the source medium itself (e.g. Instagram, Mastodon, Twitter).

According to DWDL and Amazon has acquired streaming rights for UEFA Champions League games in Germany starting with 2021. Now I’m just curious if they will also do the same for the Austrian market which would probably put quite a dent into DAZN’s income.
