The AI-focused COPIED Act would make removing digital watermarks illegal (as well as training any kind of AI on copyrighted content)
  • Regarding obsolete models, that's only partially true. There's loads of content that are effectively "finished" and won't be changing, and will grow obsolete at a fairly slow pace. Meaning they'll be useful in the models once trained for years.

    Obviously new technology and similar ideas/content that didn't exist when the model was created won't be there, but the amount that changes and or is new is relatively small each year compared to all the historical content.

    Why is my Twitter feed full of right-wing content when I don't consume political content?
  • It took me a while to realize that me and my close circle are so far removed from what most people are doing so I could logically accept that there are people who click ads and buy the stuff.

    I hate ads as much as anyone on Lemmy, so I deliberately avoid clicking the ones that slip through uBlock, but I do accept that just seeing them has some influence on me.

    There are huge deaths of folks that blissfully unaware (maybe by deliberate ignorance) and just happily buy stuff that's advertised to them.

    While it's appalling to me, it's not even something most people consider or even care about. I don't mean this to be gatekeepy or elitist, it's just a different value system and that's fine, that's what I had to realize and that's why ads are big business.

  • Signal under fire for storing encryption keys in plaintext on desktop app
  • I was just nodding along, reading your post thinking, yup, agreed. Until I saw there was a PR to fix it that signal ignored, that seems odd and there must be some mitigating circumstances on why they haven't merged it.

    Otherwise that's just inexcusable.

  • Traeger smokes security bugs threatening grillers' hard work
  • This whole problem could be avoided by running the API on the grill itself, fully locally on the lan.

    Seems like the grill is a dumb client that polls the cloud API to determine what action to take, and then the phone app pushes commands to the cloud for the grill.

    An overly complicated setup that only forces you into their walled garden.

  • State Farm seeking 30% rate hike for California homeowners
  • What are folks doing in those cases? Where I live you can't get a mortgage if you don't have proof of insurance and until your loan to value in hits a certain amount the bank basically manages the policy.

  • Ubuntu 24.10 Now Defaults To Wayland On NVIDIA
  • I'm not up to speed on this issue, but it seems like the solution is to push forward with making the readers work in Wayland? Is there a technical issue with Wayland's design that prevents readers from working properly?
