Today I learned that Google Employees can "flag" accounts so that canceling services requires an "appeal" process. Scare quotes added because this is a ridiculous time wasting process. Approaching more businesses to get away from Google Auth as this is starting to remind me of an extrajudicial Star Chamber.

Special Forces Test Hummingbird-Size Drone | Popular Science

' ... Despite its ominous name and alien-helicopter appearance, the Black Hornet is a fundamentally simple drone: it’s a camera that flies, useful for the military as a sneaky scout. The pilot uses a one-handed controller and watches video from a chest-mounted screen. The data sent back by the hornet is stored in a container on the pilot, so if enemies catch the Black Hornet (which can be done with, like, a butterfly net), they don’t know what it saw. It films in normal light and infrared, has a range of about two-thirds of a mile, and lasts as long as 25 minutes in the air. ... '

In the mean time, if you sign up for Google Music (which fails when used on multiple devices, say a Desktop and an Android phone) Google may just decide to not allow you to cancel your service (nor change your billing options) because you refused to provide them a copy of your social security card and some Google employee decides to flag your account. Very disappointing.

Exactly "we may decide to close your account or remove a service at any time" seems to have replaced Do No Evil. The only reason I tried Google Music was Grooveshark got shutdown, but apparently if I play music on my phone and try to watch a YouTube video while logged in to my account that is some DRM violation :-/ 

My Gmail forwards to servers I control and nothing sensitive goes through gmail unencrypted, my calendar I removed from google after their threat and I've mostly replaced the App store with third parties such as Aptoide. The only thing that would cause me heartache is Google Authenticator at this point but I'm encouraging the companies using Google Auth to add Authy or Duo.

#LightSail is back on line. A cosmic ray from long, long ago, and far, far away gave us a kick in the circuit board.

The Planetary Society’s LightSail test spacecraft reported for duty this afternoon, heralding the end of an uneasy silence caused by a suspected software glitch.
