I wonder how many Facebook accounts are either fake or haven't been posted in for years. I bet the number is in the countless millions.

I can't believe that the FCC didn't do something about robocalls years ago.

Oh wait, yes I can. To have done something would have meant that their bosses, the politicians, wouldn't be able to carpet-bomb everyone with calls before an election. But Americans are so angry now that the government is finally being forced to do something.

Google keeps a lower profile than Facebook, Amazon, Apple and other tech giants, but it's quietly sticking its tentacles into everything, including Android phones.

I bought a Google Chromebook because I resented the way Bill Gates and Steve Jobs tried to control everyone's access to the Internet, but Google is a bigger and stealthier monopoly now than Microsoft and Apple were.

I think Google gets less attention from the news media than Amazon, Microsoft and Apple do, because to the media it's always about PERSONALITIES, and reporters love to yap endlessly about Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, etc. There isn't a highly visible public figure who personifies Google, so the media usually skip over them.

Qualified for another free phone upgrade after waiting probably 2 years since the last one.

Go to Verizon store after work.

Buy new iPhone XR, guy tells me to transfer data at home instead of just doing it in the damn store (to be fair, this was the only fault with him, he was a good sales associate otherwise). I proceed to awkwardly stumble through backing up my 7, then resetting the XR twice and updating the iOS to the latest version (this is after the significant update to my laptop's iTune's program, which I haven't used since the first Avengers film was new in theaters).

But then eventually I had my data restored to my new XR and I immediately send my older sister a "Dick" pic. Namely, the Wikipedia image of former US President Richard Nixon.

I'm probably gonna see a spike in my cell bill because the 7 was 32gb and the current minimum is 64gb, but I need to buy less and spend more wisely in general, so it'll eventually even out.
