And that’s the instagram client removed from my phone. Again. For the same reason.
Even though the app is normally closed, the “damn, that’s creepy!” factor of getting targetted ads for say, mini-DLP projectors, the day after we have a conversation about possilbly buying one at work, annoys me something rotten. Continue reading “#noSuchThingAsAFreeLunch”
I was thinking to share some files with a group I belong to on Facebook. I could also use my own cloud server (ownCloud) but I know Facebook groups will also handle files. Then I remembered that famous clause the T&C, that if we upload content to FB, then they own it.
