#6 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Chicago taxing internet users for lost local revenue » 2015-09-15 13:58:07

How do addresses in Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc work? Do their systems "triangulate" your exact suburb based on IP, or do they base in on the billing address of your credit card, or do they just geo-fence you into a certain country (USA in this case) and simply trust whatever the user specifies as his/her local address within that country? If it's the last of the three, I'd imagine many Chicago residents simply doing the iTunes thing - where they just give the street address of some local cafe or restaurant in "tax haven" states like Delaware or Alaska - to get around this.

So yesterday was supposedly some sort of Apple product release day, judging from my RSS feed which was completely polluted with iPhone this and iPad that. So I did some reading and apparently Apple went and released some big-ass iPad with keyboard and stylus and stuff - basically Apple's MS Surface.

That, in turn, made me recall this strip;

What's eerie is that it was published in 2012.

I can see it now. Every weekly update will include some new way for the OS to bypass/override whatever spy-prevention setting/application the user has adopted.

the Hosts file is bypassed automatically

What if my hosts file was at router level?

You know, just viewing the small thumbnail, I thought it was an ice wall with taps sticking out, which I assumed were plugged into various beer barrels stored within. Now that would've been proper Canadian (well, as Canadian as the The Littlest Hobo, I suppose). Clicking the thumbnail and viewing the actual image proved disappointing.

One could argue that it's has been practiced throughout history. Think about it for a sec - once you break it all down, the terms "spin" and "propaganda" are pretty much the same thing.

you keep posting very interesting stuff that goes beyond the standard youtube/souncloud stuff.
thanks, keep 'em coming.

You can still get a lot of quality on Soundcloud. They're just harder to find now. Trick is to find publications, record stores or stations that share your interests and check out their mix/podcast archive, and then corss-link from there. I've built a decent collection of sources over the years, so nowadays it's usually a link from one of the dozen email newsletters I receive that takes me to Soundcloud/Mixcloud.

Anyhooz, I'll just post whatever I'm currently listening to whenever I'm here. If you find something you particularly like, just quote it with a "more of this please" comment or something, and I'll see what I can find.

Honestly, I'm more of a straight 4/4 guy these days, though I probably lean on the lower bpm, moodier stuff. Here's what I'm currently playing;

Will also try linking entire mag/label/station/whatever pages. That way you can skim through all the mixes they've put out and hopefully find something you enjoy; … d-mixtapes
