For Europe, Google lists more than 1000 companies that may receive data on website or app users.

It promises to publishers that they are "certified", have shared information "required by the GDPR". And Google provides a "link explaining their data usage":
support.google.com/admanager/a

Web and app publishers that use RTB systems from Google or other companies have no control over with whom personal data on their users is being shared.

Google (and other adtech firms that e.g. rely on the TCF) claim to have control over who they share data with but that's a lie.

One of my work mates has been implementing support for extensions to #GNOME Web (a.k.a. Epiphany): blog.tingping.se/2022/06/29/We

This has been made possible because at #Igalia we want more of us to dogfood a WebKit-based browser, and the number one complaint was “but, I miss extension $XYZ”. Luckily, being an owner-based coop we can *choose* ourselves to invest time in things like these :pika:

Vodafone is telling every journalist that it discussed the system with the German federal data protection commissioner to make it look like it has some kind of regulatory approval, forcing the German data protection commissioner to explain there is no approval again and again.

Looking at the number of posts received by my instance (which has a very selective view on the Fedieverse mostly driven by my interests), the Twitter expat wave earlier this year went by pretty quickly, though there is still some more activity than before the end of April - it seems some people stayed active over here nevertheless.

"10 years of Meteor" by Sacha Greif meteor10.sachagreif.com/

Great history lesson. It's interesting to see what was in vogue for JavaScript frameworks a decade ago and what's changed since then.

Nachdem an Schulen in Rheinland-Pfalz Microsoft Teams ab dem kommenden Schuljahr nicht (weiter) verwendet werden darf, werden die ersten Stimmen laut, der Datenschutz sei schuld. Nein. Schuld an solchen Entscheidungen sind Unternehmen wie Microsoft, die offenbar nicht in der Lage sind, sich an bestehende Gesetze zu halten. Und das seit Jahren.

#Microsoft #Datenschutz #DSGVO

Keine gute Idee im Umgang mit biometrischen #Daten

#Instagram testet #Altersverifikation über Gesichts-Scan

1. Alter über #Biometrie abzuschätzen gelingt nicht einmal Menschen, schon gar nicht #KI
2. Sensible Daten (Art. 9 #DSGVO) von #Minderjährigen zu erheben ist extrem mutig
3. Sich dafür die #Einwilligung der #Eltern abzuholen ist absurd - dann kann man sie auch nach dem Alter des Kindes fragen oder sie in die Nutzung selbst einwilligen lassen

Was soll das also??

Stiftung Warentest hat mal wieder zugeschlagen. Diesmal: Passwort-Manager. KeePassXC wurde mit einer Gesamtnote 4,1 bewertet, weil es "Master-Passwörter mit weniger als 5 Zeichen zulässt". Dass es noch eine zusätzliche Schlüsseldatei als weiteren Faktor gibt, wird mal eben unterschlagen. Testsieger sind die propritären Anbieter 1Password und Dashlane. Auweia. 🙄

New blog post: "Style scoping versus shadow DOM: which is fastest?" nolanlawson.com/2022/06/22/sty

Wherein I do some more benchmarking and find that shadow DOM is indeed pretty fast.

Niiiice, the newest Reeder 5 update on iOS allows to choose any installed font on your device to be used for viewing articles!

Now of course, there are a lot of caveats here:

- How fast is the SSR on your server
- How much DOM are you updating
- Do you require a server round-trip or not
- Etc

But it is kind of gobsmacking that the core claim of SPAs ("You pay a large upfront cost in exchange for faster interactions") doesn't hold up to scrutiny, at least for this set of public sites.
