DENVER — Under fire from both Republicans and Democrats over his effort to appease a group of Colorado’s sheriffs still steamed about the state’s new gun laws, Gov. John Hickenlooper said Friday that he hasn’t changed his tune and still supports the controversial ban on high-capacity magazines.

In his first interview on the subject, Hickenlooper told FOX31 Denver that he wasn’t aware he was being filmed last Friday during a meeting with the sheriffs in Aspen when he appeared to backpedal on the magazine ban, agreeing with one sheriff that it was unenforceable and telling the group that he didn’t expect the legislation to even make it to his desk.

The remarks, he said Friday, were an effort to apologize to sheriffs who felt their voices weren’t heard during last year’s legislative process, not a disavowal of the magazine ban itself.

“I didn’t say it’s unenforceable, I…

How To: Youtube Gaming Channel!


Youtube Gaming Channel

Over the years YouTube has gone from being a place to illegally upload full episodes of TV shows broken into five minute segments, to webcams of fat idiots demanding moronic changes in society, to softcore jailbait porn, to people’s jobs thanks to profit sharing. Money is king and YouTube is like a duke or duchess, or something, and now you can make all kinds of money if you have the know how by making videos.

If you want to get into this profitable business, you need the skills to make a video, get likes and subscribers. This is easier said than done, but that’s where your soft lap Uncle Sunrie comes in. Come on over and sit on my lap as I slowly rub your back and give you the tools necessary to succeed! Just don’t tell anyone. This’ll be our secret, okay?

Unlike some of my other How To Guides, this is a complete lesson. Obviously this is free of charge, just like the others.

As always, links will open in a separate window. Before you read on, here’s an example on how it all should look:


Video on YouTube. SMASH THOSE LIKES!


Purpose of this Guide
For this guide, we’re going to focus on making a specific type of successful channel on YouTube: Gaming.

There are many types of gaming channels on YouTube. These channels consist of the following types:

  • Let’s Play
  • Prediction
  • Funny/Fail Moment Montages
  • Stunt Montages
  • Impressions
  • Strategies
  • Review

Because there is a lot of cross over with each style, no matter what you do, you’re going to want the format shown in this guide.
 
 
Profit sharing and sponsors
Before you actually begin, make sure you turn on the profit sharing option in your YouTube account. This will ensure you not only get money based on clicks, views, subscriptions, and likes, you’ll also have an ad on your movie before it actually plays.

These ads will be anywhere between 15 seconds (and unable to be skipped) to four minutes or longer (able to be skipped after 15 seconds). This is how you’re getting paid, and the longer the ads in front of your movie, the more you’ll make. You’re going to be so popular, it won’t matter how long the ad is to your video, since people will be falling all over your genitals just because you uploaded something. Trust me, they’ll wait and they’ll like it!

Sadly, though, YouTube has changed they way they’ve done profit sharing and the amount has come down quite a bit. Don’t worry, you can always get sponsors. When you do, they’ll require you to have a certain content rating for your videos. That’s just life of a profit sharing, money making, YouTube artist like yourself, though.

For your sponsors, make sure you not only put in at least a picture of one of their products, if not another short video, explaining who they are, what they do, what’s being sold, and any special discounts the viewer will get by adding coupon codes to their purchase on the sponsor’s website. These short ads should be at least thirty seconds long, and up to 1.5 minutes.
 
 
Have a badass animated opening
You need to capture people attention, and the absolute best way to do that is to have a long, killer animated opening sequence. How do you? Follow the advice below! Make sure this happens AFTER all ads and sponsor information, though.

Special Effects
Don’t chince on the special effects. This should have more over production than a Michael Bay movie! Lens flare, flashing colors, animated words, and pounding music. For extra credit, make sure something in the opening sequence pulses in time with the music playing.

Music
Use something either everyone or no one has ever heard of. Forget if you have permission to use the song on your profit sharing channel or not, this is the Internet and you don’t need permission, right?

The type of music you use should be something ear pounding and/or extremely annoying. Use the absolute most over modulated, poorly optimized dubstep you can find. Alternatively, use scream metal. An example of that is Schatten Aus Der Alexander Welt. Drive home the point you’re extreme and awesome!
 
 
Content
Now it’s time to start some kind of content, but not the actual promised content itself. No, you have to beg first, since everyone loves a person begging before the content of the video actually starts.

An astrix marks something which is optional.

Showing yourself*
This is totally optional. Face reveals are sometimes good, but it doesn’t matter. If you’re going to show yourself, though, there are a few rules to follow to ensure you’re going to do it correctly.

Lots of empty white space behind you
You don’t want to have a nice backdrop and you don’t want to be zoomed in too close to yourself. Make sure your head takes up about half the screen width and almost the entire height, but leave a little so your skull isn’t cut off. Remember, the less going on behind you, the more focused people are on you.

Huge ass microphone*
Nothing says you’re a serious speaker like having a microphone the size of something from the 1920′s Radio Music Hall with a wind screen bigger than your face.

Headphone microphone*
If you don’t have a huge ass microphone, make sure you’re doing the responsible thing and using a microphone on your headsets. keep it extremely close to your mouth so every breath you take is recorded and every word is over buzzed when excited.

Huge headphones
Just like having a big mic, make sure when you’re showing yourself, you have massive headphones on. Why would you have headphones one? Who the hell cares! What’s important is you have them on, showing you’re serious about recording!

Huge ass smile and bouncing around
Whenever you’re showing your face, make sure you bounce around a lot and always have a grin on your face like you just screwed someone’s daughter while her parents were in the living room and you were both in the bathroom.

Sitting still means you’re bored and if you’re bored, people will see you as boring. Always sway back and forth, make spastic movments (a la Avril Lavigne’s video Hello Kitty). So, pretty much move like Michael J. Fox without his medication while starring as the creepy little girl from The Ring.

Messy hair, unshaven – Overweight*
Nothing says “ARTIST!” like seeming as if you don’t give a fuck about how you look. Make sure your hair isn’t done up, you have a five o’clock (or later) shadow, you’re over 25 and you aren’t really that skinny. Oh, and wear “Dad” clothing even if you aren’t a parent.

Punk inspired hair done neatly, shaven, nice clothing – Skinny*
If you aren’t any of the previous, do it right and make sure you’re auditioning for a modern day Beatles band membership. You want to be super clean cut, with a somewhat hipster style hairdo, and wear clothing from places such as American Eagle. Try to look even younger than you are, and be “oh so cool”.

Begging and delaying
Before any other content aside from your ads, sponsor information, and intro begins, it’s time to now beg. What will you be begging for? Check out below!

Thank people for watching
Start off by thanking people for watching, even though they haven’t watched anything of value yet. This lulls them into a false sense of safety, promise of content, and makes them feel welcome.

Subscribers
You’ll want to instantly go into asking for people to subscribe to your channel. Promise them content, based on likes (more detail below) and subscribes. Talk about how many you currently have and then reference how many you want to have. Tell them how it only takes a moment of their time while they’re watching. I mean, hey, they aren’t actually watching anything yet and so it should be no big deal to scroll down and hit that subscribe button.

Reference your last video
Talk about how well the last video did and thank people for liking it. Reference the link in your description and in your video on how to view it. If you want more likes on it, then tell people to go to it and click that like button.

Now let’s talk about those “likes”.

Likes
Talk about how many likes your last video had and how you want more likes on that video, and the desire to beat the last video with likes on this video.

Promise people if they like this video with X amount of likes, then you’ll upload another video. Beg people to “mash/smash/trash/hammer/etc” that like button in order to drive the likes up to the desired level.

Sharing
Now’s the time to start telling people to share your channel and/or video with other people in order to get even more subscribers and likes. Tell them to share it with everyone they know and have them tell anyone they share the video with to not only like it, but subscribe to the channel as well.

Get them to go onto other channels and link to your videos. You’re going to be doing this yourself as well, but it never hurts to have all your subscribers bomb other videos in order to drive more traffic to your channel, which results in more likes and subscribes.

Talking
You’ll need to do a lot of talking. There is a proper and improper way of doing this to make your channel popular.

Mispronounce common words
When you talk, make sure you say common words incorrectly. The more common and basic a word, the more you have to screw up with how you say it. For example, instead of saying “word” start saying “worb”.

If it’s something to do with a game, such as a proper name, no matter how many times the in-game voice actors say the name, use the wrong pronunciation. Who cares if the creators and original dialect don’t say it the way you do. Fuck them. For example, say “Die ah bLow’ instead of “Dee Awb low” when talking about the series Diablo. Or even the now common, “Bet ah field” instead of “Battle Field” for the Battlefield series.

The more you screw up what you’re saying the better.

Have an accent which is an insult to your region*
This is most important for anyone who is from England. People like a British accent, but even if your version of the accent is the spawn of Satan himself, make sure you talk over everything. The worst you sound, the better for these videos.

If you’re a kid, talk extremely fast with your high pitched voice*
Just like the British accent, the one thing people can’t get enough is a squeaker. There are bonus points here for being a squeaker and having a such a terrible accent you’re almost unintelligible.

Talk over absolutely 100% of the video
As the video plays, you’re going to want to talk over 100% of it. Doesn’t matter if the audio is important or anything like that, just keep talking and don’t stop.

Remember, if you’re doing a Funny/Fail Montage, the video isn’t what people want to see and laugh about, it’s your endless commentary on the subject matter. Don’t let the video stand on its own, because it can’t. You’re funny, not the funny moment.

Ramble on before getting to what’s going on*
You’ll want to ramble on about random things, like someone making you banana bread. Don’t actually talk about the video right away. That cuts down on your video time and that is stupid.

Get distracted by in-game content*
If you’re talking about something in the game or even if you’re doing a montage of some kind, you’ll want to be distracted by things going on in the game, which has nothing to do with what your video is about.

For instance, if you’re talking about a glitch in Skyrim, just randomly start screaming at the NPC’s who are walking by and saying scripting comments. Don’t just focus on what you’re doing, go out of your way to add extra things! People will see this as an added value and not a detraction or annoyance in anyway.

The Clip
The clip or clips you’re showing shouldn’t be any longer than 35 to 45 seconds for actual content. The longer you spend doing everything else, the shorter the content should actually need to be.

For instance, if you’re talking about how to upgrade a skill in Grand Theft Auto: Online, the clip showing how to do it should take about five minutes, when the explanation is actually only about 15 seconds. This is all helped to be stretched out because of what was discussed in “Talking”, so you shouldn’t have an issue at this point.

If you are doing just a quick clip, make sure it’s very quick. Your introduction and ads should be longer than the actual video you want to show.
 
 
Outtro
The outtro is just as important as your intro. If you don’t get this right, you’re going to lose potential subscribers.

Act like it was the best video ever
You must keep up the excitement so people will want to watch more from you. Say something like, “Wow, wasn’t that freaking amazing?!” Then go onto the rest.

Thank people again
Don’t forget to thank your views once again for watching the video. If you don’t, they won’t feel loved after the quick video they just watched and will have forgotten you already thanked them.

Begging
Once again, beg and delay the credits. Remind them to subscribe, like, and comment once again. Don’t forget to tell them to send it out to all their friends and link to the video in other people’s videos.

Credits
These should be a single, static frame which lasts for all of five seconds before the end of the video. There should be no music and no voice over, either.
 
 
Promoting
You need to get your channel out there. Don’t leave it all up to your subscribers, whom you begged, to do it for you. Get out there on every other gaming channel and promote the hell out of your channel. Tell them how you make better ones or ones just as funny and link to yourself. Take it to Twitter and Facebook as well.

Do this three, four, ten times a day on each and every channel on as many of their videos as you can! It’s not spam if it’s content!


Well, there you have it! This comprehensive guide is your gateway to YouTube fame. The success or failure of using this guide is up to you. Follow it, and you’ll go places, kid. You’ll go places. Places I tell you. Places.

Hickenlooper acknowledges speaking with Bloomberg after flap with sheriffs

Sunrie:

Not one more term for this criminal shit!

Originally posted on kdvr.com:

DENVER — Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper acknowledged that he did indeed speak with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg during last year’s protracted political battle over gun control legislation, something he appeared to deny while addressing a group of Colorado sheriffs on Friday.

During a meeting Friday in Aspen with a number of sheriffs, a majority of which strongly oppose the new gun laws, Weld County Sheriff John Cooke asked Hickenlooper why he didn’t listen to the state’s top law enforcement officers as much as he did to Bloomberg.

“Well, lets, let’s stick to the facts,” Hickenlooper responded in a video clip of the exchange. “I never talked to Mayor Bloomberg. I…Again, that’s been out in the press and all this stuff.  Just for the record.  You know, I met Mayor Bloomberg when I was a Mayor, and I know him, uh, I think he’s a pretty good Mayor.”

A few ways games and designers can advance (s)


Here, in the cesspool known as the Internet, there is a huge out crying to videogame designers for certain changes in the way games are presented in terms of the characters. Some people are making claims such as, “It’s about time that we had XXX”, or even, “Why not make XXX a YYY just because?” Well, thank god the game designers don’t listen to those idiots.

However, just like a shiny piece of corn in an otherwise pile of muddy diarrhea, there is some small glimmer of intelligence in those requests. Unlike them, who present the notions and ideas like a child wearing a helmet licking glass in a candy store, I’m going to bring up them up in a way which actually makes sense. Made it past the “trolololo” intro? Good, you’re on your way to some enlightenment as a gamer and/or designer.

This isn’t going to be straight forward list, since I absolutely despise that “writing” style, so expect to read. I’ll also list a few games which got “it” right after each subject addressed.


1. More Male or Female Selections or Just Good Female Protagonists
I’m loving the fact more games are showcasing more females as leads. Not because it’s needed, it’s just a nice new take on things. I’ll admit to being a little burned out on playing the badass Rambo-esque guy. There are obviously games which need it, but let’s have some fresh takes on things. Games like Outlast, even though they feature a male lead, are excellent because you’re not a walking death-god. There was nothing scary about F.E.A.R. outside of jump scares because you could take out anything in your path. <– (A conversation for another entry)

What we do need is the ability in more games to choose if you’re male or female. There has to be a reason for it, though, and not a “just because”. Lara Croft, as the best example, has proven people don’t give a damn if you’re male or female in a game which doesn’t give you the option of choosing as long as the character is likeable and the gameplay is solid. Skullgirls was awesome and featured an all female cast.

We don’t need a female protagonist in Grand Theft Auto. Would it be an interesting change? Yes. It’s not needed, though. Is it really necessary to make your hero a woman? No, but if it fits, then do it. Don’t do it just because a bunch of whiny, hand out babies demand it.

Games which got it right:
Skyrim
Fable 1/2/3
Borderlands 1/2
Grand Theft Auto 5: GTA Online
Mass Effect 1/2/3
Skullgirls
Tomb Raider (all entries)
Neverwinter Nights 1/2
Dragon Age: Origins
Left 4 Dead 1/2


2. LB/GT Options and Characters
Before a lot of my reader base starts screaming at me over the fact I don’t support gay marriage: Shut up.

There, so anyway, as long as things are there for a reason, why not? I’m not interested in having my male character slam butts or having my female character slam clams, but there should be the option for those who do. Obviously this wouldn’t work in all games, but for open world games where we’re supposed to be making up our own version of the story this would make sense. Of course it wouldn’t make sense if it’s established characters such as Grand Theft Auto 5, so don’t start thinking along those lines.

How about some gay antagonists, such as Gay Tony from Grand Theft Auto 4: Episodes from Liberty City: The Ballad of Gay Tony? Say what you will, he was antagonist for sure. Maybe not directly to your character, but oh yeah, he was a bad guy. Or how about Silva from Skyfall? The enemy doesn’t have to be like he’s marching in a pride parade (a dildo strapped to and pointed into his butt while wearing a thong, fruit basket hat, and screaming, “I’m a pony! I’m a pony!”), but he could help make things uncomfortable. I know Silva sure made things creepy in Skyfall.

For the love of god, though, don’t go the damn Dr Who or, more specifically, Torchwood route where everyone is bi-sexual. Give me a damn break. Sorry, but Russell T. Davies only thinks he can write for adults. No, Anthony Burch, he doesn’t know how to write LB/GT characters and you need to stop taking writing cues from him. Oooh, I’m such a bitch.

Also, don’t force it on gamers. Don’t force gamers to engage in the activities, just leave it as an option if they so wish. Then again, forcing your player to deal with an LB/GT interaction to make them uncomfortable is okay. If the character is straight and suddenly they’re forced into a situation they have to get away from, then hey, that’s all fair enough.

Would I have a problem playing a lesbian or gay character in a narrative? Nope, just don’t force me to engage in sexual activities. We aren’t forced to engage in sexual activities in games with straight characters. Just be fucking mature about this and don’t think you HAVE to put those activities in the game just to emphasis the sexuality of the characters.

Games which got it right:
Fable 1/2/3
Skyrim
Grand Theft Auto 4: Episodes from Liberty City: The Ballad of Gay Tony


3. Racism and Sexism
Be it your protagonist, antagonist, or NPC, include it. Racism and sexism is real and should not be avoided. Father Comstock in Bioshock: Infinite was such an excellent antagonist because he was much more than a fist shaker. He had personality and his deep rooted racism helped define him. The racism portrayed by father Comstock helped give me reason to hate him.

I know what some of you are thinking: Vaas from Far Cry 3 made you hate him! Not really…I never had a reason to hate neither him nor Buck. I didn’t think they were good people and felt that gaming world was better off without them, but I never felt the deep seated urge to full on annihilate them.

Racism and sexism can both help the player to either despise or agree with someone. If you don’t think there are people out there who played Red Dead Redemption and agreed with Herbert Moon, well, you’re wrong. Also, making a character racist or sexist can give the character more flavor. It’s a great way to make the player feel a little uncomfortable. A character’s in-game friend who is one, either, or both can give the player that conflicting emotion in a game filled with choices, be them moral, ethical, or mission based.

What I’m very obviously not talking about here is anything like Ride to Hell. That’s just pure exploitism and provides nothing to the experience. Still, there would be nothing wrong with finding out the main villain or even an adversary is running a forced prostitution ring which needs to be broken up or something similar. What about a woman who hates men just because? No reason, she just hates men because of some stupid skewed view of the world? Yeah, paint feminism in that terrible light just like chauvinism.

Games which got it right:
Bioshock: Infinite
Red Dead Redemption
Skyrim
Mass Effect 1/2/3


4. Female Villains and Enemies
Right up there with the ability to choose a male or female character is to have more female enemies. Some women are just bad people and some women are bad people who actually hurt people or have them hurt. I find Brooke Augustine from Infamous: Second Son to be one of the best female antagonists ever. She was highly effective, extremely sure of herself, and even had the “I’m the good guy!” mentality. Another great villain was Astonema from Power Rangers: In Space. She was extremely effective and just kicked ass. Why aren’t we seeing more of this?

Also, there really does need to be more female enemies. I’m tired of shooting the same carbon copy men. Skyrim got this right with having female enemies show up in the mix. Trust me, only a very small group of people, who aren’t going to be playing your game anyway, will be having problems with killing female enemies. This isn’t a domestic violence issue. This isn’t a sensitivity issue (WTF doesn’t that mean anyway?). It’s a political and bias issue for not doing it. Looking at you, Anthony Birch, once again. Yep…gotta call you out on this bullshit.

If I’m going against a criminal organization, chances are, there’s going to be some females involved in the illegal activities by choice. Sex traders let women be in charge of looking after, forcing, and “educating” the women they kidnap into the trade. Let’s see that reflected in the games.

Want equality? Start giving it and stop looking away from making women or certain demographics be involved. Also, make the females human!

Game which got it right
Skyrim
Infamous: Second Son
Mass Effect 1/2/3
God of War 1/2/3
Left 4 Dead 1/2


There…there’s four ways you can mature and evolve in game design and story writing. Don’t let your political biases or personal whinings to limit you in it all.

Fuck you, Google (s) – Scary stuff!!!!!! (rage)

Fuck you, Google.  You need to die!
Do you people read your agreements when allowing an update? Yeah, I know most of you don’t. I wager 99% of people don’t. Most of the time I don’t, either, but when so much attention is given to a company with how in bed they are with the Federal Government, I pay more attention. Today we’re looking at Google.

At this time, I have an android based phone, which is a favorite of Google. Almost every application on my phone requires Google in one way or another. From the Play Store (application download area) to even just watching YouTube on the phone, I need to have Google activated. Well, fuck you, Google, it’s not going to happen. Why? Well, here’s what you allow Google to do with your phone when you allow access to their services. All of the things I am listing is 100% true and I am getting off of my phone since Google won’t stop spam fucking me with “You need to turn this on!” to use my phone. I’ve finally hacked around it.

Be afraid. Be very, very afraid!


Permissions
This app can access the following data on your device. To improve performance and reduce memory usage, these permissions are available to (Insert Google service) services because it runs the same process as Google Bookmarks Sync, Google Contacts Sync, Google Backup Transport, Google Services Framework and Google Account Manager:

1. Read phone status and identity
—Yes, you grant them the ability to monitor who you are calling, how long, what the status of the connection is, and even monitor your phone conversation as it happens live. Remember, they aren’t your service provider, it’s just Google monitoring you so they can provide information to the NSA.

2. Read instant messages / Write instant messages
—So, not only can they now listen in to and monitor your phone calls, they also have the right to the same information with your text messages. In addition, they can send out texts using your account to anyone on your contact list.

3. Take pictures and videos
—Here you are granting them full rights and access to your camera to use at any time. Think they can’t do it? You’re wrong. They have the ability to do so with your phone since you have it linked to your Google account. They know what phone you have and, from what you’ll see, know exactly where you are when you’re walking around with it.

4. Record audio
—So, not only can they access your camera, they can actively monitor what is being said around you, even outside of a phone call! This allows them to even more discreetly spy on you.

5. Approximate location (network-based) / Precise location (GPS and network-based)
—Yep, you let them know exactly where you are at any time. If your GPS isn’t enabled on android based phones, you can’t even use your weather programs like you could in the past. There is no reason for this to be here.

It only gets more fucked up from here!

6. Modify your contacts / Read your contacts / Read your social stream / Write to your social stream
—Not only can they now know who is listed on your phone, but you give them the right to add, delete and otherwise change those contacts. Think the NSA doesn’t just love this? Also, anything you use in association with your phone, be it Facebook, Twitter, or what-have-you, they can now go in and alter it however they see fit.

7. Activity recognition / Modify your own contact card / Read your own contact card
—Here you are giving them the ability to monitor ANY activity to your phone and give them the right to alter your “contact card” (how other phones associate with you)!

8. Read your web bookmarks and history / Write web bookmarks and history
—Anything you do online through the search program on your phone, you give them the right to track and change. Think this can’t be used for evil? Yeah, prove you aren’t visiting certain sites since they can now change your bookmarks and history however they want. This is how an NSA wet dream starts.

9. Modify or delete the contents of your USB storage / Read the contents of your USB storage
—Holy fucking shit!!!!! Think this isn’t bad? Ever hook up your phone to your computer? Guess what? That computer is recognized as USB storage by the phone! Whenever your computer is hooked up and the phone is on, you are giving Google, and whoever they grant the access to, the right to check out everything on that computer! On top of that, they can add or delete anything on there they don’t like! I’m sure Google wouldn’t mind altering all your searches to default on Google and any government agency is stroking themselves to the thought of being able to check out your computer without a warrant since you’re giving consent to it!

As if the previous stuff wasn’t scary enough!

10. Add or remove accounts / Contacts data in Google accounts / Create accounts and set passwords / Find accounts on the device / Google mail / Read Google service configuration / Use accounts on the device / View configured accounts / YouTube / YouTube usernames
—Yep…any account you have on your device they can change. It doesn’t matter what kind, they can do it.

11. Modify secure system settings / Read sensitive log data / Retrieve system internal state
—There is absolutely no reason for Google to have the right to any of this. If you have anything with Google activated, they can go into your phone, make deep root changes to anything they see fit. Trying to encrypt something on your phone? Well, Google has the right to unencrypted it and then block it. Your phone usage and past history? Yep, they have access to that. Simply turned Google services off? Yep, they can turn it back on. They are also allowed now to see if the phone is on, off, charging, draining, hooked up to a USB, sleeping, reseting, turning off, turning on, and when all the times you did that are.

Think your WiFi is safe? Try again!

12. Change network connectivity / Connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi / Download files without notification / Full network access / Receive data from Internet / View network connections / View Wi-Fi connections
—Are you kidding me?! So Google would have the right to disconnect me from my WiFi, bug my phone, monitor and use the network I am connected to, monitor any and all data being used on that network, see who else is connected to that WiFi and check what other WiFi connections would be possible? FUCK YOU!!!!!! FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!! There is no reason you need this!

13. Access Bluetooth settings / Pair with Bluetooth devices
—Aaaaaaand now you’re allowing them to monitor any Bluetooth device in the area and even connect to it! Yes, this means other phones as well!

14. Make app always run / Run at startup
—So, they can not only bug your phone and use it to monitor your entire life, but they can make it so you can NEVER turn it off and it will always run at the startup. Fuck you, Google.

15. Draw over other apps
—You also allow them to make it so an app always runs on top of your phone, which is a way for them to block access to anything else on your phone. Bitchin’.

16. Control vibration / Prevent phone from sleeping
—Oh, so now the phone won’t go into sleep and will always be lit up, which helps prevent applications from turning off? Awesome.

And the fucked up continues!

17. Read sync settings / Read sync statistics / Toggle sync on and off
—-Have Yahoo! programs running? Are you running a different mail program than Gmail? Yep, they can shut that down, check the status of it, and use it to their advantage.

18. Interact across users / Modify system settings / Read subscribed feeds / Retrieve app ops statistics / Send sticky broadcast / Write subscribed feeds
—Oh, and here’s even more “fuck you” to the user. So, you have a feed on Twitter? They can read it and write to it. Have other people on your phone or in your phone plan? Well, they can now monitor them, too. The biggest, “Oh fuck, me!” of this, however, is the fact they can change your system settings. At any time they can go in and change your phone to be whatever they want.


There you have it. Google wants to track your every, precise god damn moment around that phone. Don’t forget, they’re in bed with the NSA and are more than happy to turn over any and all information to them (Google on Offensive over NSA scandal). If you think they’re standing with the people, you’re a fucking idiot.

What you need to do is disable and delete anything associated with Google and KNOX on your android device. If you don’t, then the consequence is on you.
