It's slowly dawning on me that I may have forgotten to pay my rent in the run-up to xmas.

Oops!

Ever thought about setting up a pitch and putt?

Look who I found on my (RL) walk to the beach this morning...

Contemplating spring

Getting a really lucky shot.  I was taking pictures of something else and playing with the windlights, then cammed out and around a bit to check angles and just happened to catch this in my view.

Unboxing new iPhone!

And why GOOGLE IS EVIL!

Restoring settings and apps from iCloud backup. Nothing Google on my phone whatsoever, even have the default search engine in Safari browser set to DuckDuckGo. The on one app I use my dad's account, so he logs into it with his Google account. Three minutes later I get this email:

Google-Evil.png

I REPEAT: Zero Google apps or *anything Google* on this phone, Never has Google.com ever been loaded up in any browser on this phone. The *only* "Google anything" was to log into a 100% unrelated app with a Google sign-in. Now Google knows everything about this brand new iPhone.

Google is evil. I'm telling you people if you Google anything, don't start whining about privacy and security. LOL

Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft too.

mmm, that would do it. When you logged in to that app they still process the login. They saw you using mobile safari so they know it's an iPhone. They also know there are no iPhone apps registered to you... and of course they have your email. Boom!

Google's/Facebook's hooks are very deep in the web. It's not really possible to do much without their pointy little google-ears poking up.

No - did not use mobile safari (unless the in-app authentication did it). LOL My point is this: HOW can they know I don't have those other apps unless they SCANNED the phone for them??? (Oh and not my email, my dad's email - but just the same as far as they're concerned - they still scanned MY phone) Ugh. I haven't used my Facebook account for years and I don't use anything Microsoft, either (better alternate software anyway).

I suppose the scary bit is that they are still getting information about me what I actually TRY to avoid them getting it. Imagine how much they have on all the people who don't even try to hide and use those services willy-nilly? THAT is the scary part. At least all my passwords are 14-character randomness (I use BitWarden to manage them).

Had a splendid Sunday Breakfast with the gang at Beth's place. I was feeling feverish so I logged Marty in for the warmth.

Relaxing by an outdoor fire. Places like this remind me of the ski resorts up in the mountains.  They always have a huge outdoor fire area where everyone hangs out after skiing.

Took a road trip on the Heterocera from the Rivula region on Route 1 to the Melanthia region on Route 5, with a detour down and around Robin Loop.   First time driving a motorcycle - this was an unexpected gift - and this particular one was very easy for me to drive and keep on the road.  A lot of fun :)

Earlier this morning I was hunting crystals in Linden Realms. Managed to get quite a few greens and blues and lots of oranges so was happy with that. 

I'm currently working on my newly created SL blog (3 days old) but hope to spend some time with my family later when they get online. 

My Blog: Forever Fun

Today I got my new laptop so the fun begins again. I spent the morning grappling with Win10 but I'm slowly getting there.

Soon it will be time to grapple with Firestorm. And then Windlight and who knows what......🙄
