Ad-blocking is a step backwards into the dark ages!

If all users were running ad-blockers, what would happen?

Most free sites would have to close down or charge a subscription fee for viewing their content (articles, videos etc). Let’s say, best case is that all sites would find a way to survive (by some sort of subscription fees and/or hidden commercials). In that case, the sites would survive - good for them. But what about you and me. For us, it would have the following consequences:
- It would cost us money
- It would limit our choice of sites drastically
- Sites would begin to camouflage ads as information to escape ad-blockers

We would be less informed and get less nuances - and we would be misinformed!
It would be
- politically a disaster!
- educationally a disaster
- industry development and innovation wise a disaster
- society wise a disaster
- socially a disaster
By and large, ad-blockers are a huge step backwards from free information in abundance to old ways of limited information.

By the way, what do you think would happen to your selection of TV channels, if they were blocked for ads?

And no! This post is NOT funded by anyone (like publishers for instance). But I AM offended by ad blockers robbing publishers for the ad revenue they depend on when providing me free content. And even more offended when ad-blockers take publishers as hostages charging them high fees for allowing ads to pass through the ad-blocking - How can that be legal?

I admit: I have not tried ad-blockers, so I don’t know exactly how they work. But whenever I read about their success (150 million users or more?) - I worry about the free web which I love so dearly!

But every time someone blocks ads, there will be less money for the content creaters (e.g. journalists).
And less money for content creaters means less content and lower quality of content.

Google+ Collections is now rolling out, new share button appearing for some users | 9to5Google

Sounds a lot like folders on Google Drive.

Especially if they can be nested like folders can.

How Ingress, Google's Real-World Smartphone Game, Got Me Out of My Shell

One of my fellow ingress players linked to this article

I highly recommend the ingress game

Getting out of the house and meeting new people is hard. For a long time, I let inertia limit me to the same neighborhood and daily routine—until I started playing a mobile, augmented-reality game from Google called Ingress. In just a few months, I’ve explored places I’d never seen before, met tons of new and interesting people, and walked hundreds of cumulative miles—all because of a simple video game on my phone.

Jeg er desværre håbløs til at holde mobiltelefonen stille, når jeg tager et billede.
Ved Husum torv regnede det ikke. Men tre minutter senere kom et lille regnskyl, og et det blev til et enkelt lyn lidt borte .
Ellers har jeg ikke set noget uvejr.

Nåååå det er bue og pil, pyha! jeg blev helt forskrækket og troede det var sådan en grim anordning der smækker sammen om dyrets ben.
Og jeg har det fuldstændigt ligesom dig, jeg fatter ikke, at det kan være fornøjeligt at skyde og dræbe dyr i fritiden +Svend Erik Nygaard

I know this is a joke, but not sure what the fuss is about... iPhones, and Apple products in general have never been about checkbox marketing. Apple will lose most feature comparisons. TouchID radically changes the way you use your phone. There's no checkbox for "transforms how natural it is to whip your phone out and use it in seconds".

To paraphrase Fred Hampton:
Apple Power to the Apple people...
Android Power to the Android people...
Windows Power to the Windows people...
Blackberry Power to the Blackberry people...
