They say it.
I was looking for a good news app which gives me consistent flow of news nationwide because we are entering a new stage in politics and government be eliminating a whole lot of things we are used to. Example is how almost daily there is an incident between police and civilians that robs everyone the wrong way. Anyway those whom don’t understand politics and how government pushes military in disguised as “stuff happening” would never notice but that is the future for “trend” watchers in business and politics.
My search in Google Play store was not very successful until I decided to search for the “real news.” A search for “tabloid news” indeed eliminated all the established sources of phony news and I can settle for 10 million downloads and editors choice blah blah. It is a tabloid news collector but we pretend is all legit because everyone endorsing it.
Apart from typical tabloid “news articles” other news not favored by big media also gathers up. Some can be interesting.
Allo is made by Google to save all your communications and will hand over to police anytime and upon request? I really don’t care.
Allo was declared doomed when was launched but the idea is worth a look. Facebook is rumored to have had enormous NSA backing to be so well-placed and everyone except the 1% religiously use it to document every detail of their lives with evidence which is available to NSA computers for use by big American corporations. They say is used by Government against you etc but the truth is one thing NSA does not do is national security and big corporations own NSA and whatever Facebook and it’s Messenger may or may not do be for the good of big business not anything government-related. This topic is pure conspiracy unless you are a little into government then is old news.
Locally, I remember for a long time there was a push to make SMS a means to communicate commuter trainer incidents to its so-called “police” of Hollywood fame for unheard of brutalities. That never happened but one day they launched a fancy APP. It was not long after the grapevine had it that APP is bad news as super bad news and that reporting crime would just be a report and what the app really does is help track anyone who installs it and helps recruit professional snitches and most importantly helps target complainers (whoever reports crime a lot making this .gov look bad.) I still think SMS does the job without involving oneself in hillbilly activities also known as commuter train police. May be 20 years from now crime can be reported but today?
Is Allo Really that Bad? You tell me.
