In 2014, I gave a talk called Free is a Lie at a run-of-the-mill, dime-a-dozen, Silicon-Valley-worshiping Big Tech/surveillance capitalism conference in the Netherlands.

Enterprises that banned the Store might not get the update in some cases. Way to go Microsoft!

Hey Apple,

Saying you block trackers but not blocking Google Analytics is like saying you practice safe sex when you cut off the heads of your condoms.
