All of them combined: No one can beat us in breaching privacy and bombarding you with ads..
Amazon: Hold my beer 🍺6
Me: Franz, can you explain your code to me?
Franz: Sure, but.. umm.. I forgot to bookmark the stackoverflow link.
Fuck those stupid fucking Wish app ads! Fuck them! They are everywhere! Get the fuck out with that scam bullshit.2
A guy who's parked next to me in the RV asked me today if I know anything about computers. Sure, what's it about?
He has forgotten his password for a Word .doc file, already installed all possible tools for password cracking, but none of them worked, and now
he can't find his vacation photos and surfing the internet suddenly doesn't work anymore.
Okay, no problem, I'll take a look at it. Windows 7 Home Edition, completely covered with malware, everywhere popups with pr0n ads.
I told him that I can't do much more than trying to recover the data and reinstall the OS. But before that, I'll make a image of the hard drive (thank god, only a 250 GB hdd). Then we'll see.
Unfortunately neither he nor I have a Windows DVD, so he will probably become a proud user of Antergos tomorrow.5
I looked the website today. Just once.
Ive seen ads for this site everywhere since. Social media, blogs, quora.
I can't get used to this2
I'll just leave this here:
No tracking, no revenue: Apple's privacy feature costs ad companies millions
Youtube with its annoying ads that pass my dns server. Well, no longer! Just add /api/stats/ads to the universal routing. Poof ads gone ^^,2
Damn I hate ads. Ads everywhere, watching your favourite sports ads interrupts , visiting a website ads. In sites they pop up too much until it becomes personal5
Why is it that a website thinks that it would be a good idea to completely block a user from using their website if they have an adBlocker? Now don't get me wrong, I can understand them wanting to put up a message maybe saying "hey we make money off the ads that are displayed, please don't block them." But FFS give the user the choice to close the window and continue on if they don't want to disable their adBlocker! I know personally I just choose to leave the site and go elsewhere for content when I encounter those things!
Don't force me to disable and then refresh!2
Apparently Facebook can put ads everywhere saying fake accounts are not their friend etc etc. However, they can't figure out that a new profile with a new post that contains a link is potentially a scam account... Seriously, it isn't rocket science.
So...about companies having way to big expectations on their job ads descriptions: Me being the new guy in all of this, of course I'm looking for more informations on the field everywhere. One day I came across a video on youtube posted by Eli the Computer Guy, and he was describing (caricaturing) this exact problem. You should look it up.
I'm not sure if he himself is a valuable source/resource of knowledge, but it did help me to understand this problem to some extent.
Hope it helps you too.6
Thanks in advance.5
