Prince Harry and Meghan's visit to Australia - Parasite's Paradise

Just in case you did not know that on the 28th of April 1770, the land we call Australia today, which was already occupied by people, was claimed to be a possession of the crown in the name of King George the Third, by James Cook, Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander.

We call this action Possession Day.

Another term used is Invasion Day, which was on the 26th of January 1788, when the First Fleet arrived on this land.

This was also when martial law was officially installed on the people of this land.

Do you reckon the mainstream media will inform you of this?

Oh, and here's a meme to make it more legitimate:

WD Purple microSD or the SanDisk High Endurance card?

On the 11th day of April 2018 the corporation Western Digital announced a new line of surveillance storage microSD cards that being the WD Purple, of capacities 32GB and 64GB, in line with the nomenclature used with their hard disk storage solutions.

Following that announcement it would be a great idea to bring a detailed test report to our readers, so off we go to the local technology wholesaler, but alas no stock, as they have not made it down to the British penal colony called Australia.

So the next best thing would be to do a product comparison from factory specifications, for the mathematically challenged.

According to their microSD card is rated at 80MB/s read and 50MB/s write performance.

The endurance rating of the 64GB card is up to 64 TBW (Terabytes Written).


According to their High Endurance video monitoring microSD card of 64GB capacity is good for 10,000 (ten thousand) hours of recording at Full HD, in line with their nomenclature used in their hard disk line of storage solutions.

The read and write speed of the card is rated at 20MBps.

SanDisk defined Full HD video at 1920 x 1080 resolution at 26Mbps (Megabits per second)

26Mbps = 3.25MBps (Mega Bytes per second) = 195MB per minute = 11.7GB per hour.

Since the above white microSD card is good for 10,000 hours then the amount of data that it's good for is 117,000GB or it's Endurance Rating is 117 TBW.

While the purple card is quicker in both read and write, the white card has an endurance rating of 1.8 times the new purple one.

Also note that Western Digital announced to acquire SanDisk in October 2015.

LinkedIn deceptive conduct for data harversting using Dark Patterns

LinkedIn is another corporation that should be in the courts if not at least in Australia, but also other jurisdictions, e.g. the U.S and E.U.

Under Australian consumer law, LinkedIn is implementing something called unconscionable conduct or another version of deception or fraud.

The way LinkedIn is doing this is by deliberately hiding text when a user sets up an account with LinkedIn, something that the industry calls Dark Patterns.

Let's see how long the Australian authorities will take to catch on.

It took 2 years for the Australian authorities to act on a post we posted regarding Domain name fraud.

It seem there's not much interest in protecting the Australian consumers (or rather data providers), as it's better cheaper for corporations, that the slaves compile and later provide their data to corporations for 'free'.

We do not recommend using LinkedIn.

Apple Malware

Apple's software is Malware (malicious software).

Apple is a company that thwarts technological advances.

Apple is a tax evading corporation seemingly untouchable by the Australian government.

We do not recommend the purchase or use of Apple products.

If you are using Apple products, here are some reasons not to, as documented by under the headline;

Reasons not to use Apple

Worker abuse
Right to repair
Tax avoidance
Other reasons



Apple spies on its users, and helps others spy on them.
  • If you carry a cell phone, it tells Big Brother where you are. Apple wants to hand out the information too.
    Using the lever of "You have a choice, but unless you say yes, your old activities will stop working" is something that Apple has done before, with malicious "upgrades". Apple ostensibly doesn't force people to accept the new nasty thing; it just punishes them if they don't.
  • Apple left a security hole in iTunes unfixed for 3 years after being informed about the problem. During that time, governments used that security hole to invade people's computers.
  • Apple's Capitulation to China's VPN Crack-Down Will Return to Haunt it at Home.
  • Apple has outsourced its user data storage in China to a company controlled by the Communist Party of the province of Guizhou

Worker abuse

Tax avoidance

Apple practices tax avoidance using loopholes and lobbying.
  • Apple pioneered techniques for avoiding the US corporate tax (even though it is far too low) in order to pay next to no tax.
    The loopholes that Apple uses would be closed, if not for the political power of business. "Free trade" treaties give business increased power to block such changes, so we must abolish them to break business's power.
  • The Apple CEO met with the troll and said: "Tim Cook from Apple, I'm here to talk to the President-elect about the things we can do to help you achieve your stated goal."
    This text was transcribed from a video recording. I can't offer a reference because the web site requires nonfree Javascript code.
    Cook was angling for a big tax cut for multinational businesses.
  • Apple Avoided $40 Billion in Taxes (by lobbying for a tax cut). Now It Wants a Gold Star?

Right to repair

Other reasons

  • Apple iThings pioneered a new level of restricting the users: they were the first general purpose computers to impose censorship over what programs the user can install. Apple practices Digital Restrictions Management in many other ways too.
  • Ebooks with DRM won't work on an iThing that is jailbroken, due to intentional sabotage by Apple.
    E-books with digital handcuffs are products designed to attack your freedom, much like the iThing itself.
  • Apple doesn't trust, or respect, those who use its products.
  • Apple exploits the app developers mercilessly, aside from a few stars whose role is to give a misleading impression of what developers can expect.
    I can't sympathize much with those app developers, since they are making proprietary software. They all deserve to fail. However, that doesn't excuse the way Apple treats them.
  • Apple lures people into the business of developing apps with visions of the great wealth that a few of them get. Most just fail, often losing a substantial investment.
    Anyone who intentionally develops proprietary software (i.e., does not respect users' freedom) deserves no sympathy, but that doesn't excuse Apple for luring people into it. Some of them would not have tried to develop proprietary software if not for Apple.
  • Apple is a major patent aggressor. Here's a rather absurd patent that Apple will surely use against other mobile computers. This joins many other patents which Apple is already using to attack free software.
  • Lots of iThing users complained that they did not want the U2 album "gift" that Apple stuck them with — and that it was hard to delete.
    These complaints focus on a superficial problem, reflecting the shallow thinking that Apple instills in its users. Ironically, though, this superficial problem reflects a much deeper problem that the complainers have failed to notice: the unjust power that Apple has imposed on whoever uses an iThing or iTunes.
  • Apple turns a blind eye to environment in China.
    Although Apple has joined EPEAT again, it does not cover the iThings — only the Macintosh.
  • Apple practices planned obsolescence for the iBad — in just two years.
  • Apple store staff are taught twisted psychological manipulation.
    The mere practice of referring to service staff as "geniuses" is dishonest already.
  • Apple devices lock users in solely to Apple services by being incompatible with all other options, ethical or inethical.

Australian Government forcing you online

Once choices are removed you are no longer living in a democracy but rather a totalitarian state.

The people in the Australian Government (herein referred to as the ‘administration’) are removing options for the general population in the way they are able to conduct their business.

As an example the late Department of Social Security, now a business called Centrelink has removed from its website the rental assistance form, therefore making it difficult for people to obtain, where they must physically attend an office to obtain such a form.

This may not be a practical or even possible scenario for many disadvantaged people.

The rental assistance form known as the Centrelink Rent Certificate for (SU523) is available for download at:

With the recent very public affair regarding Facebook’s so called ‘data breach’, which in reality is part of their internal business model, attention has been drawn to data collection by companies, organisations which also includes governments, as documented by Edward Snowden.

Very briefly;

Despite what governments say about data being securely stored, people should be aware that their private and personal data which is stored on hard disks on various operating system platforms is very vulnerable to exploitation.

One of the largest culprits in ‘data breaches’ is something called apps on user’s smart phones.

To make it even worse (with regards to the user’s privacy and security), the current technology in GSM ‘feature’ phones or dumb phones and smart phones is not designed for user’s privacy, but rather conversely as a surveillance device.

The current smart phone operating systems duopoly dominated by corporations Apple and Google, do not value your privacy, where data is harvested from your device and sent back to those companies, where it is later passed on to various organisations without your knowledge or consent.

In an effort to monitor and later control the people’s movements the administration will be forcing people to use ‘plastic’ rather than cash in the form of a card called Indue.

The administration is also taking away the choice for people to pay cash for their motor vehicle registration in certain branches of VicRoads.

Many other ‘government’ departments are forcing you ‘online’.

If you are told to download an app from either Apple or Google by a government department, in order to conduct business with them, where there is no paper alternative, you are being forced by them to put your private and confidential data on your phone at risk.

By creating an app. (e.g.) Centrelink is forcing you to conduct business with either Apple or Google, where in reality the same task can be undertaken within the website, therefore being independent of your device’s operating system. 

There is no legitimate reason for apps of this calibre to exist.

Officeworks does not value your privacy

Officeworks is another 'data collection' company.

What they do with 'your' data is something you have no idea about.

The screen capture below is taken from a standard configured Internet browser, where when you type in the address to the officeworks website, you obtain the address you requested.

When you type in the same address into another browser that is configured to protect your privacy, then the Internet address you asked for does not appear, but your browser is redirected to another website that looks like it has ties to Amazon, where an Officeworks looking website is displayed informing the user of an 'error'.

There is no factual 'error' but rather misleading information supplied to the user.

We do not recommend purchasing from Officeworks with a credit card nor giving them your email address so that they can send you your receipt via email.
