[x-post from Lemmy] My dichotomy with technology and privacy

2022.01.20 19:31 TheAnonymouseJoker [x-post from Lemmy] My dichotomy with technology and privacy

This is a post from another user, I think it is worth a discussion.
Lemmy links: https://lemmy.ml/post/151310 and https://lemmy.ml/post/152897

I struggle to find balance between wanting privacy in my day-to-day, and wanting to use the newest and greatest services and products.
This post is meant to drum up some discussion that I feel is often lost on privacy focused communities. It's about the nexus between privacy and modern technology. I hope I don't sound like an idiot, I still consider myself a novice at technological privacy.
I'm a fairly privacy concerned individual, not for any particular reason other than that I feel it's my right, my data, and I should have the say over who gets to see/use it. Especially when I'm paying for a service. I find that at times, I am more privacy oriented than others. I have a Google Pixel 4 that I've used Lineage OS on for a while. I've bought an old thinkpad and have a a linux distro running on that as well. I also have, an iPhone, a Macbook, and a desktop PC used primarily for work/gaming that is running Windows 10. EDIT: I also want to recognize my privilege to be able to choose between all these devices. Not everyone can switch around so freely.
Every few weeks I tend to flip coins on the matter. Some weeks I really just want the ease of everything working, quick google searches, iMessage, polished operating systems, etc. Other weeks I want to be a total privacy nut and clamp down on all of my traffic, pop my SIM into my Lineage Pixel, and do my work on my laptop for a while.
I want to know if anyone else goes through these types of moodswings like I do? I also want to hear your stories on how you went all the way and never looked back, or tried to and ended up somewhere in the middle. All of this back and forth for me has made me a much more privacy minded person, and the non-privacy focused products I used are about as clamped down as possible - but that's not saying much.

I’ve heard him say some variation of “America is now a humorless, sexless, autistic horror show” on an episode of his show and JRE. Anyone have the exact quote, clip, or which episode it’s in?

Hej allihopa. Self explanatory title, I'm originally from the US and am desperately desperately searching for corndogs in a pregnancy rage.
Has anyone found them frozen in a store somewhere? I'm sure I won't be finding them in a street vendor on the corner, but will happily take frozen if they exist here.

So I can use a box to do enchantings for me. Can I give a npc more than one item per order or do I have to do more orders with one item each?
And are there differences between the npcs that can do enchantings for me? Like one is better than another? Or one has other enchantings than another?

2022.01.20 19:31 Noj11 Employment Certification Processing Times

I just spoke to Fed Loans on the phone (no wait by the way). According to the rep it is taking 12 weeks for employment certification's to be reviewed. They do prioritize employment certification's >115 months based on the pre-wavier rules only. However, if you are like me with >120 payments (but 40 are wavier payments), then you just have to wait in the queue.

Is there any modern day mod? I know Millenium Dawn, but I can't really handle the production of 12 different things so I can get one unit. Is there any modern mod where I can simply make Brazil a superpower without going with 10 lines of production?

2022.01.20 19:31 Tikolu43 YouTube's dangerous content policy bans content featuring "disturbed eating habits which negatively affect a person's health". Why does this not affect channels such as Nikocado Avocado?

Such channels seem to revolve all of their content around unhealthy eating habits. How come they gain such popularity while clearly infringing YouTube's policies?
