Our profession is still very young compared to some other engineering disciplines.

Weil's ja immer mal wieder Leute gibt die Schwierigkeiten haben die eigenen Bedürfnisse mit den Bedürfnissen anderer unter einen Hut zu bringen...

Es gab einmal eine funktionierende Linux Lösung. Dann kam eine neue Landesregierung und dekretierte den Umstieg auf Windows. Warum? Sagt keiner. Wie teuer? Weiss keiner. Wie lange? Weiss keiner. Gibt es Einsparungen? Weiss keiner - "werden erwartet", aber die Migration kostet erst mal Millionen, also vermutlich frühestens in 10 Jahren. Ein Schelm wer Lobbyismus oder Korruption vermutet, aber eine unfähige Art ein IT Großprojekt anzustossen ist es auf jeden Fall.

I agree that RSS' demise is a shame. I've observed for years that it gets harder to get sites to fix broken feeds, or to convince them not to remove them. For me, it's still the best way to get at exactly the news I want. I shudder at the thought of a world where people get their news via Twitter and FB, full of fake news, clickbait and spam.

Apple has never shied away from kicking the developers who target their various platforms, but this is really nasty. I've never used the macOS app to discover apps, and I don't think I'll start now. So that probably means fewer apps, and a less useful computer, for me.

What to make of a Google CEO who pretends not to understand the difference between removing an app from the home screen and actually removing it from a device? Or who pretends not to know that one does not have to have 100% marketshare in order to wield monopoly power? Where was he during the Intel and Microsoft anti-competition proceedings? +Sundar Pichai, I hope you can do better than that. Especially wrt. to the issue of forcing Android manufacturers not to build devices with Android derivatives I conclude that the days of "don't be evil" are truly over.

This articles has lot of good advice for these privacy-troubled times. DuckDuckGo, Ghostery, HTTPS Everywhere and AdBlockPlus are part of my standard armory, as is Threema as a secure messenger.
