Google's argument here is basically along the lines of that old saying, "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2019/06/report-google-argues-the-huawei-ban-would-hurt-its-android-monopoly/
Also it took me far to long to realize that the witch Bandora ("Rita") is played by none other than Machiko Soga, who also played Queen Hedrian in *both* Denjiman (as the main villain) and Sun Vulcan (as a villainous sidekick) - the only time a #supersentai villain appeared in two consecutive seasons.
In both cases she plays a melodramatic, hammy villain with arcane witchcraft powers, but Hedrian was much more of a regal domme than the goofy Bandora.

"Big Mood Machine: Spotify pursues emotional surveillance for global profit"
"Here's what I said. I said if I played $1,100 mathematically I'd have one 4-number winner, that's 1,000 bucks. I divided 1,100 by six instead of 57 because I did a mental quick dirty and I come up with 18. So I knew I'd have either 18 or 19 3-number winners and that's 50 bucks each. At 18 I got $1,000 for a 4-number winner, and I got 18 3-number winners worth $50 each, so that's 900 bucks. So I got $1,100 invested and I've got a $1,900 return."
Are porous smaller states that compete on regulation better than larger ones in the internet age? This literally never occured to me. Something like Brexit is bad because it limits civilians from freely passing through those borders. But, what if you could maintain a small proud community AND pass freely between states without massive centralization of regulatory/cultural/etc power?
The coolest thing I've heard about Bitcoin in a LONG time. Very cool stuff going on around the world, even though it's hard to see in English/Japanese.
“I came from Italy, and know exactly what mafia extortion looks like,” he says. “Yelp was manipulating reviews and hoping I would pay a protection fee. I didn’t come to America and work for 25 years to be extorted by some idiot in Silicon Valley.”
Whoa. I've never taken an IQ test, but I did hear it a lot growing up. I had no idea it's origin is related to eugenics.
It also occured to me that the idea of eugenics is way more dangerous than just calling someone a neo-Nazi or whatever. I think that gets at the human bias that is at the core there. And TBH I still here people using this idea in different ways subtly today in Japan. It's kind of baked into the idea of royalty and often "family legacy", is it not?
