    Apple is selling iPhone 7 & 8 again in Germany

    So they have effectively made them worse but are probably still selling them at the same price before the ban

    Spotify banning ad blockers

    if pihole you can, same if pfsense, you either just don't want to and you're barking at the wrong tree for wrong reasons or too lazy to open a tab to access you're router and add an address to the whitelist section
  8. Tried last weeks beta, friend gave me a code, got tired and bored after 30 min of gun fight. From what I experienced it's basically Gears of War take cover and shoot with retardedly huge bullet sponge mobs and bosses. And frankly I've moved way past GoW by it's second entry to ever be interested in that kind of gun play ever again so meh, not interested. Next on the list: Anthem. Going in with the certainty that is going to be trash cause EA, but hey, gotta do something while I wait for borderlands 3

    Spotify banning ad blockers

    When my boss turns it on in the office in the morning for the first 4 hours of day, all we get are the ads for premium that give you the 30 mins no ads afterwards. In rare occasions ads for a new album release. If I have to compare I've heard more, longer ads in Pandora, Deezer and Beats Radio (Apple Music) than I ever did on Spotify before buying into premium. The only one that served less ads, basically none, compared to Spotify was SoundCloud, but the tracks are mostly indie thrash imo so I hardly ever use it

    Activision-Blizzard Fires 800 staff to cut costs

    But execs will still get their fat bonuses at the end of the year. Hopefully it means going back to release quality games, but I bet that won't be the case. Quality is no longer a requirement in current year

    Spotify banning ad blockers

    Then whitelist Spotify? And keep everything else blocked. They are not saying you have to nuke adblock from all your devices in order to access their library, just that if you are not willing to see ads and have no planning on becoming a premium user then they have no reason to do business with you. And as mentioned before: Spotify ads are benign, as harmless as the ones in duckduckgo or here in LTT, they are not the annoying porn mmo popups, they are not the obvious malware "fuckbook meet single woman near you in <IP location here>", they are not clickbaits "see how this man made xxxxx amount of money and why banks hate him", they are just audio queues majority of which are Spotify own ad for premium and in really rare occasions a video ads that lasts half of the audio one and gets loaded in 360p, and they are not even user specific targeted ads. There many reasons to hate internet ads in general, and many reasons to criticize Spotify (the discover weekly playlist could be better, the mix playlist could actually try to add new tracks once in a while at the the top of the playlist and when you know I already have saved an album in my library, have listened to it both locally and streamed hundreds of time, why the f are you making a mix playlist with all the tracks of that album?!), but the ads they serve aren't one of those.

    Opera includes a free VPN in Android

    Would you really trust a VPN from a Chinese owned free browser? Just get PIA, it's not that expensive and has no China on it

    Electronic Arts Stocks SOARS After Apex Legends Launch Success

    Never liked BR, specially if I have to play on my own, but have to admit, even without friends had a pretty decent time in the 2 hours I've put on it so far
  15. Yep and just like my general boycott on everything Activision and Ubitrash, I won't get near to anything from them ever again. And if I ever receive a copy through humble monthly I'll just do the same thing I did when they gave me Destiny 2: sell the code on g2a, use cash to buy Warframe platinum (or a month of FFXIV cause I recently got hooked on that during Christmas holiday)

    Spotify banning ad blockers

    you can't blame spotify for having the lowest pay per stream and then complain about spotify banning free users who have adblock no. Just saying that even as a premium users i find banning people for using adblock is a dick move even if the types of ads spotify serve are the kind that will bring you malware, clickbaits and whatnot, they're not even user specific targeted ads. If anything they should just give the your using adblock banner thing and let you access once you have whitelisted them

    Spotify banning ad blockers

    And Spotify is the only one with a good free model compared to Apple's you can listen to Beats Radiom and Amazon's cut down version of music unlimited if you are a Prime member or nothing if you are not. On-topic: Even as a premium subscriber, i found this to be a dick move, but on the other hand Spotify ads aren't banner, aren't popups and aren't flashing windows, they're just sound bites and in rare occasion video ads shorter than what you get on a youtube video. Spotify's ads are pretty benign. Also keep in mind that Spotify is operating at loss with current rates source: https://www.digitalmusicnews.com/2018/12/25/streaming-music-services-pay-2019/
