Google clamps down on VPN workarounds for cheaper YouTube Premium subscriptions
  • How long has Google been killing things now?

  • Google clamps down on VPN workarounds for cheaper YouTube Premium subscriptions
  • my comment meant I was preparing to fight.

    You're not.

    Google are thou hence the shadowboxing reference.

  • Google clamps down on VPN workarounds for cheaper YouTube Premium subscriptions
  • how much they must value our personal data, that it only just now became worthwile to fight blockers with this much effort and PR/image depreciation.

    You got it, on the nose.

    Shadow boxing is always good practice.

  • Google clamps down on VPN workarounds for cheaper YouTube Premium subscriptions
  • Ultimately VPN users aren't a protected class so it's legal to discriminate.

    This is what I've always found fascinating about companies and governments trying to block their usage.

    All major firms/companies/governments use them, so, how the hell are they gonna stop them when their bosses get poked that's something's up 🙉

    Fun times ahoy.

  • Android 15 can automatically delete your face or fingerprint unlock if they aren't working well
  • Because generally the TSA in Yankland are overly aggressive, but to be fair it can happen anywhere and here in the UK if they snag you into the backroom and want to search your phone you're screwed either way since they, can.

  • LineageOS 21 now officially supports the Nintendo Switch
  • We're talking about Nintendo here, and we all remember Sony taking away things that made things better too, right?

  • Jellyfin Live Tv
  • Dreamplayer on Android and Android TV is pretty cool for TVH servers, albeit they want you to pay for each app and have a rather appropriate username

    But as others have said LiveTV on Jellyfin sucks and can be used instead with VLC and other apps / resources.

  • Realme Spain claimed *all* of their Realme GT6 stock got stolen, right before launch
  • Seems a bit dubious doesn't it, especially since they'd be compromising any investigation by Tweeting about it in the first place.

  • [Meta] Could we have a monthly "Pick an Android for me" pinned thread?
  • Yeah I'm unsure of the scheduling of posts on Lemmy, and I know @coles is looking into some form of Automod here on lemdro.id.

    Let me poke a few more others ;)

  • [Meta] Could we have a monthly "Pick an Android for me" pinned thread?
  • I'm unsure if there's something on Lemmy for that, but it's definitely something that helps the community since most mod actions I recall are poking people in the right direction like PAAFM.

    Awesome team and community over there, and there is the old wiki pages too 🤔

  • You seem to have quite an agenda going for the last two days.

    Care to explain why all your posts and more importantly cross posts are biased against Apple?

  • Question about replacing/expanding a disk
  • Nah.

    USB is slow, and will kill the drive if used 24/7. I know it's hard to expend too much money on a dedicated box for storage but long term you'll thank yourself for investing.

    3TB of data I lost and paying to recover that data? Dammit, hindsight is a bitch

  • Question about replacing/expanding a disk
  • Says on the product page that that Beelink supports a maximum 2TB SSD, so I wouldn't go buying another unless you're sure it can.

    As others have said, no USB drives as I've had a failure with one too hence me now having a NAS. I know you said you're allergic to spending money but saving up for one was the best thing I've bought for a while.

  • Newpipe and using a VPN
  • It's really strange, and testing via ProtonVPN some do and don't work.

    But I think where I've found my main issue is the Exit Node I have at a family member's house that I use through Tailscale.

    None of them work on that connection and, I don't know if it makes a difference but it is a CGNAT'ed connection whilst my exit node at home seemingly works fine and has an external IP.

    Thanks for the confirmation!

    I seem to be suffering from the above bug

    https://github.com/TeamNewPipe/NewPipe/issues/11139

    but it only seems to pervade if I'm using Tailscale to VPN home to my exit node at a family members house?

    Is Google / YT blocking the use of VPN's here / anyone else experiencing this?

    Pebblebee Tag for Android review: I couldn't Find My Device
  • Was there an advert for Age of War in the article that made your script include it here randomly?

  • New ASUS router firmware now requires a user to be 16y or older and will restrict features and even security upgrades if you opt out
  • Fraid not.

    I recall worrying about MAC address tracking one time and using Chainfire's MAC privacy app, but that's a non factor now since they're randomised by default on Android on the most recent versions.

  • Please spread the word, help if you can.
  • I find apps and Automod bots, are a better way of fucking that shit off even if users didn't mean to post some =ref/tag infested URL.

    Having bots post uninvoked as a reply to the OP though should be better managed as they detract the comments thread?

    Apple TV and iOS YouTube ads are not blocked by Pi-hole, so I researched this and discovered a flaw in Protobuf that allows me to restrict YouTube ads.

    not called Brad but rather a lad, from Bradford in the UK.

    Enjoys breaking apps, escooters, spam rings and sometimes bones, but not my own. That sucks.
