This is an opt out system meaning it will be enabled by default. Not only does this pose a major security risk it also strips away privacy and uses up your bandwidth. Having a mesh network connecting to tons of IOT devices and allowing remote entry even when disconnected from WiFi is an absolutely terrible security practice and Amazon needs to be called out now!
In addition to this, you may have seen this post earlier. This is because the moderators of this subreddit are suposedly removing posts that speak about asmazon sidewalk negatively, with no explanation given.
How to opt out:
Edit: As far as i know, this is only in the US, so no need to worry if you are in other countries.
Call me a maxi but Ethereum has been consistently running at a volume of 850 + transactions every minute for the last 6 months.
Meanwhie Polkadot has 6 transactions on it's network every minute and thats only in the last few days when transaction volume has peaked.
Polkadot has a market cap value of over 11% of Ethereum's.
Ethereum - 143B
Polkadot - 16B
but its network volume is only 0.7% of eth's.
Either Polkadot is overvalued or Eth is undervalued.
I'm all about thinking long term but theres no way I'd be jumping into DOT right now. You have the risk of investing in a start up chain but because of the size of its market cap you only get the reward of investing in Eth 12 months ago. (Ethers marketcap was a similar amount in early 2020)
I don't think that calling Facebook and other social media platforms evil and accusing then of stealing our data and privacy is accurate at all.
Firstly, no one is forced to use them. We all agree to the terms and conditions, the benefits of having the access clearly outweigh the drawbacks for most of us.
Secondly, we often choose how much of the stuff is there. We post all our pictures, posts, etc., we're free to give them as little data as possible, but most of us post a lot of random shit publicly and then are complaining about not having privacy.
Thirdly, how do people expect the sites to be free of they wouldn't advertise based on personalized information. Of course they have to, otherwise there's no business plan and it wouldn't exist (or be for money). And anyways it's not like Zuckerberg is sitting on the toilet reading Karen's new Facebook post about how shitty her service at Starbucks was, the data analysis is all algorithmic, people don't actually have access to the data so it's not really that much of a breach of privacy.
Frankly I don't care so much that they track my interests or movements, no one actually knows that it's me as in my person, I'm some ID in an algorithm and so what if I get a personalized ad here and there, it's actually even sometimes welcomed. I am able to understand the worry in the case of publically known people, but that's the risk that comes with fame and it's not any worse then paparazzi stalking you.
People need to grow up, accept that technology isn't a magical thing, it has to be financed and it can't protect them from everything online. It's a tool we choose to use because its benefits outweigh the risks, we can't have it all.
As the title states, could we all take a moment and give appreciation to the Network for not having a serious outage, as it did back in 2016 and 2011.
EDIT: Awesome! Thank you guys for my first reward.
