google antitrust filing thread from @fasterthanlime@twitter.com 

RT Lock (with permission):

Ok so, I just read through all 173 pages of the unredacted Google antitrust filing and I have to say that either Google is screwed or society is screwed, we'll find out which.

Unordered list of fun things I learned:

- google has a secret deal with facebook called "Jedi Blue" that they knew was so illegal that it has a whole section describing how they'll cover for each other if anyone finds out
- google appears to have a team called gTrade that is wholly dedicated to ad market manipulation
- Google had a plan called "Project NERA" to turn the web into a walled garden they called "Not Owned But Operated". A core component of this was the forced logins to the chrome browser you've probably experienced (surprise!)
- Google is willing to do almost everything to prevent people from circumventing their ad exchanges
- This is what AMP is about
- Google habitually insider trades on their ad exchanges in every way you can think of and every way you can't. Too many ways to list here.
- The exchanges are also rigged so that google wins on bids where they aren't the highest bidder.
- A large amount of people inside google are aware of all of this
- If Google ever tells you some change will increase your ad yield, run. In fact anything they tell you is a lie
- Google has worked with Facebook and Microsoft to discourage them from increasing user privacy, lamenting occasions where they prioritized their reputation over their collective business interest

@darrenpmeyer to the vendor i mean (i guess i typed faster than i wrote)

@sean @preya damn.... I used it for years and haven't found a thing....

@pls at least all the internet routers and switches have spare bandwidth 😇

Quick! Download everything yuo need now since half the internet isn't being used right now

@xpil my wifi and kids already use it for they're day-to-day usage. All of them play games, and make school work (and can't understand you-know-who)

@garritfra i do have more stuff connected to the same "meter" so, that value might be lower.

@garritfra have an old laptop and it's drawing 1.2kWh per day...
