Apple can't protect you from data trackers forever. No one can
The Ghostery privacy tool has thousands of trackers in its database, and it's adding about 20 to 30 new trackers per week.

Even that's still not enough though, he said. "There are trackers that don't end up in our database."

These trackers use tactics like device fingerprinting, which allows advertisers to know who's viewing their content based on data your browser gives over. The chances that visitors to a website have the exact same settings, fonts, plug-ins and browser version as you are pretty small, and it allows trackers to set up "fingerprints" for each device.

Facebook to Banks: Give Us Your Data, We’ll Give You Our Users
The social media giant has asked large U.S. banks to share detailed financial information about their customers, including card transactions and checking account balances, as part of an effort to offer new services to users.

Facebook increasingly wants to be a platform where people buy and sell goods and services, besides connecting with friends. The company over the past year asked JPMorgan Chase & Co., Wells Fargo & Co., Citigroup Inc. and U.S. Bancorp to discuss potential offerings it could host for bank customers on Facebook Messenger, said people familiar with the matter.

Facebook has talked about a feature that would show its users their checking-account balances, the people said. It has also pitched fraud alerts, some of the people said.

CompuLab Small Form Factor PCs
CompuLab offers various small form factor PCs. I've been looking for a PC to embed in my Westy, so I can work on the road without messing with a laptop and cables. I've hardwired a laptop charger and an HDMI port into the Westy, but it'd be nice to just flick a switch to power up an embedded Linux machine built in to the camper. Heck, maybe I can also install an always-on, low-power computer to monitor the systems, and then the Linux PC can archive the data permanently when it boots up!
