    Commented in A Major Drug Company Now Has Access to 23andMe’s Genetic Data. Should You Be Concerned?

    Although I didn't forsee this, I'm not a fan at all of 23andMe, and this has just reinforced my (low) opinion of them. I'd never get any testing like that done, and if for some reason I wanted to, it would not be through 23andMe, and it would only be with genetic counseling done first.

    Oh thanks! The links are great!! Anyone who hasn't seen the episode will otherwise have no clue what I'm talking about... so am grateful for the links. Yes - definitely a spine-chilling concept.

    Commented in Facebook moves 1.5bn users out of reach of new European privacy law

    As far as I understood it, the European privacy laws relate to where the user is located, not the company or the data centers.

    An interesting read... reminded me of that episode in Black Mirror.

    Commented in Administration announces $12 billion in aid to farmers hurt by Trump's trade war

    The sugar subsidies and proposed sugar tax is ridiculous, I 100% agree!! I have drastically cut down on sugar intake solely for reasons of economic policy, not for health reasons. I am enjoying increased health as a really nice side effect though! I don't drink sodas any more, and I try to avoid sweet treats and ready-made foods that have sugar in them... I'll still use sugar if I'm doing any baking, but I'm so busy that it doesn't happen often. I treat sugar (or foods containing sugar) as if it cost $10 a bag instead of $2 a bag, and that more or less limits my intake that way. We don't even NEED sugar to eat healthy meals. I can cook a nice dinner of roast chicken, mashed potatoes, and carrots without involving the sugar industry at all.

    Yes, I know that was a side thing to your main point, Appaloosa, but it was nice to see someone who also is concerned about economic policy relating to the sugar industry.

    Commented in Twitter locks your account if you change your display name to Elon Musk

    This could pose problems for anyone else with the legal name of Elon Musk. Hopefully it's an unusual enough name that this is not an issue.

    Commented in How Doctors Take Women's Pain Less Seriously

    I also feel that doctors take older people's symptoms less seriously also. An elderly family member went to hospital with stroke-like symptoms, yet the doctors didn't really seem to take it as a big deal. I think they just put down some of that to "old age" but it's not.

    Commented in Global Warming Will Cause More People To Die By Suicide, Study Finds

    100% agree - my immediate thought upon seeing this was similar (and I love your analogy!). Basically, unless people are leaving notes specifying climate change as the reason, what we are seeing is most likely correlation, not causation.

    Commented in Review: A Counterfeit, $100 iPhone X

    Curiouser and curiouser.... I enjoyed the thorough level of analysis here. Fascinating. I'd never, ever want to own one, due to the security risks and backdoors they found in it, but it was certainly interesting.

    Commented in Over 5 Million U.S. Consumers will Cut the Cord in 2018, Survey says

    This does not surprise me one bit. It's not just a bid to save money for some consumers (although certainly true in the case of some). It's that cable companies have failed to move with the times.

    People simply don't have time these days to sit down in front of a TV every Tuesday night for the latest episode of whatever. More and more people are just too busy - and too busy to bother setting up a recording, too. I see the appeal of Netflix first-hand - I'd far rather be a season or two behind on a show I like, so long as I can watch it anytime without bothering to set up recordings. Another old-school thing about cable: many of these don't save your spot in a recording for more than 24 h if you pause a recording. This is ridiculous! How many people have the time (or the mood) to go back to a show within 24 h? By contrast, Netflix saves your spot for ages (I can't remember how long, but it's really long, like weeks). And on top of this, cable companies charge many times the cost of Netflix! Cable is just very poor value for money and has failed to move with the times, so I'm not surprised that the 3 big cable companies will be hard-hit in 2018.

    Commented in ​WTH Amazon!? Prime Day goes to the dogs

    Other retailers have been looking to do their own sales on Prime Day to compete with this, and Amazon's glitches may have resulted in some customers shopping with competitors on Prime Day... Amazon is by no means the only online shopping option, although it's certainly the biggest.
