Vodafone plans carrier-level user tracking for targeted ads
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/vodafone-plans-carrier-level-user-tracking-for-targeted-ads/
<snip>

Whoever came up with this name "TrustPiD" has a sick sense of humour as in my mine this it the opposite effect and trust has nothing to do with it.

The highlighted quoted text at the bottom of the above link, pretty much covers my feelings and I'm surprised the EU haven't jumped all over it.  I feel a very big fine in the future and an exit of vodafone users when they become aware of this tracking.  But then do we have any guarantees that they won't follow the same path if vodafone get away with this.

Windows 10 or 11 Microsoft appears confused

https://youtu.be/_fxXwY8c7vE
I expected an update to Windows 10 Insider Preview Beta Build.
I again wound up with Windows 11. Microsoft apparently doesn't
follow its own rules on a system that can't run Windows 11
and installs it anyway.
