Personal and corporate nightmare for all Windows users because they are going to take screenshots and store it locally. Every one knows how bad actors get locally stored data. Also From Microsoft’s own FAQ: "Note that Recall does not perform content moderation. It will not hide information such as passwords or financial account numbers. 🤡 https://www.microsoft.com/en-ie/windows/copilot-plus-pcs#faq2

Now, everyone is so furious about OpenAI stealing a beloved celebrity's voice. But what about the many artists, writers/authors, and creators whose copyrighted works OpenAI stole to create works resembling and replacing those people's products? Not famous enough to generate the same outrage, right? At least now, everyone knows how bad Sam Altman is. He thinks he is above the law. I'm glad someone is standing up to this bully and I hope something good come out of it.

Events happened so far:

  1. First, Sam approached Scarlettl, and she refused to work with him.

  2. Two days before the GPT-4o launch, they contacted her agent and asked that she reconsider his offer.

  3. Despite not receiving a response from Scarlett, OpenAI proceeded with the product launch.

  4. When Scarlett's lawyers asked for an explanation of how the "Sky" voice was created, OpenAI deleted it from its product.

  5. His response to press or outrages: https://x.com/haydenfield/status/1792748249272795348

I don't believe anything will happen to Sama legally. He received a considerable amount of money from Microsoft and has many powerful friends unless governments decide to control this situation. We all have to live with this madness and hope karma will catch up with him one day. It is hopeless situation. </rant>

@SebastienK lmao. even if he did, i don't have resources to send him letter using fancy lawyers.

@WagesOf It's the same here. Sam knows nothing will happen to him because of his powerful status. This time, he was caught red-handed with proof. He underestimated Scarlett Johansson, who can afford expensive lawyers. Most artists can't even pay rent on time or afford food. This is a sad reality. He is taking jobs away from people who needed it most. I don't know how he sleep at night time ...

Satya Nadella says Windows PCs will have a photographic memory feature called Recall that will remember and understand everything you do on your computer by taking constant screenshots. This is a great reason to ditch windows altogether. Switch to 🧑‍💻 They don’t care about your privacy or safety anymore and not hiding it either.

It is a real shame that Microsoft is associated with scammers these days. No wonder engineers are leaving OpenAI.

I asked Google "who ruined Google" and they replied honestly using their AI, which is now forced on all of us. It's too funny not to share!

Someone actually built a Chrome extension to "Hide annoying Google AI Overviews". LOL. Right now it only has 2,000 users, but I wouldn't be surprised if it reaches millions in a few months when SGE (Search Generative Experience) will be rolled out globally. https://chromewebstore.google.com/detail/hide-google-ai-overviews/neibhohkbmfjninidnaoacabkjonbahn Duckduckgo is also releasing similar tech using AI .

There are some valid reasons to temporarily disable IPv6 in Linux for testing, debugging, and other purposes. Let's see how to disable or enable IPv6 in #Linux temporarily using the CLI https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/how-to-temporarily-disable-ipv6-in-linux/

@nyx net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 is used to set on any interfaces that are created after the change.

net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 set all interfaces, including both existing and newly created ones

If you want to disable IPv6 completely and permanently , you must set both parameters to 1.
