    Digital Rights: Information control via corporate advertising
    InRangeTV



    Published on Apr 6, 2017
    The monetization war for your attention has recently increased in intensity.

    A war is being waged by the old media on YouTube creators and it's up to the consumer (you) to dictate who wins.

    Consider supporting the Electronic Frontier Foundation. They're fighting for your digital rights!

    YouTube & Advertising - You can control the future of the internet!
    InRangeTV



    Published on Apr 8, 2017
    We have demonetized all of InRangeTV's content on YouTube.
    They can keep it.

    The future of the internet is in flux, and we're at one of those pivot points right now. Will we allow the "old media" to control the conversation and the information distribution paths or will we, the consumers, take control and opt for a better, more decentralized future?

    The future of our this project, and ultimately the internet as whole is in your (and our) collective hands.

    InRangeTV on YouTube is now entirely viewer supported:

    YouTube HATES YOU - HERE'S PROOF! And How I Would Fix It.
    An American Homestead



    Published on May 11, 2017
    There are more and more reports of videos being de-monetized on homesteading and gun channels. We have had a number of our videos de-monetized but we've only lost one appeal. I am very angry about this video they age restricted EVEN THOUGH YOUTUBE clearly said it did not violate community guidelines.

    What's the point in having rules if you're still going to penalize the people who follow them? Many top channels with conservative politically incorrect content have been feeling the pinch lately of their videos being de-monetized.

    I show you in this video PROOF that conservative channels are being penalized based on their content and viewpoint. I ALSO GIVE MY OPINION ON HOW WE CAN POSSIBLY FIX IT.

    ***BE SURE TO CLICK ON THE LITTLE BELL NEXT TO THE SUBSCRIBE BUTTON TO MAKE SURE YOU DON'T MISS ANY FUTURE VIDEOS!***

    If you liked this video and want to see more off grid homesteading content, please subscribe to our youtube channel and share our videos with friends on social media! We love it when you share our videos! Also be sure to visit our blog for amazing homesteading articles that involve solar, growing gardens, raising livestock, and general off grid topics.

    My LAST YouTube Video? Freeing The Subs!
    An American Homestead



    Published on Jun 13, 2017
    It's not about the money. It's about holding our subs hostage. Unless your a channel that Youtube approves of, your subs are being held hostage. Normally, approved channels never tackle politically incorrect material and have access to the feeds of all their subscribers.

    How can a channel with 600,000 subs put out a video and have it only receive 40,000 views? That's like 6% of your overall subscribers. Are you telling me that only 6% of your subs decided to watch your video? Or is the YT algorithm holding your other subs hostage because YT is making the choice to show them other content IT THINKS they will find more interesting.

    Over. Done. Meet Blockchain! You are stuck in the centralized control of a fading construct. A Decentralized Blockchain is going to be the future of censorship free content.

    Net Neutrality
    InRangeTV



    Published on Jul 15, 2017
    If you're interested in doing something about this, please check out this website:
    https://www.battleforthenet.com/

    The issue of net neutrality has again come to the forefront of our fight to maintain our digital rights.

    In this video I give a very low level (non-techie) explanation of what Net Neutrality is and why it must be preserved. I do also provide some of my personal opinions *gasp* on how to truly address this problem.

    We need to have this conversation outside of our any "techie" echo chamber - this issue effects everyone in the modern world, regardless of their technical savvy.

    The internet has been an incredible tool for changing the world and it is teetering on a precipice that could turn it back into just another mechanism for the "old media". We can not let this occur.

    More importantly, spread the message and ensure that everyone you know understands the magnitude of the risk, techie or not!

    InRangeTV accepts no monetization from the old media. We are wholly viewer supported:

    Google and YOUR "smartphone"...

    Google's voice assistant records and keeps conversations you're having around your phone

    You would be forgiven for thinking that your private conversations were just that, but Google's Voice Assistant could be recording everything you say.

    The feature is designed to allow users to talk to enabled gadgets to search the web, launch apps and use other interactive functions.

    As part of this process, Google keeps copies of clips made each time you activate it, but it has emerged that background chatter could be enough to trigger recording.

    [​IMG]

    The Mountain View firm has been keen to push its Voice Assistant in recent weeks, which was a headline feature at the launch of a range of new Pixel smartphones and Home smart speakers in October. It is also enabled on a large number of handsets running the Android operating system, developed by the Google.

    MailOnline has received a number of transcripts of conversations that show how Voice Assistant may be recording your conversations without you knowing. One example from an anonymous user appears to have registered the code to their back door entry system, while chatting with a friend. A written transcript of the conversation said: 'If you ever get booked down to my house for some reason the key safe for the back door is 0783.'

    Another user's conversation about technology appears to have been captured, without them realising the assistant was recording. They said: 'Mate. We're living in the future. I've just installed a game through the Steam app remotely on my PC in London from my phone.'

    Another clip from the same person appears to have captured them saying 'F*** off' to someone, without them realising the assistant was recording

    Other examples submitted by users include what appear to be voice activated searches for recipes, like a feta and tomato omelette
    Another clip from the same person appears to have captured them saying 'F*** off' to someone.

    Google previously released a My Activity feature that reveals exactly how much information the company has collected about you, through your activities online. What some people may be unaware of is that the Voice and Audio section includes recordings of your voice. These are made when you trigger the voice assistant, which may happen inadvertently during conversations or by pressing buttons on a Voice Assistant enabled device without realising it.

    A spokesman for the firm said: 'We only process voice searches after the phone believes the hot word "OK Google" is detected.

    'Audio snippets are used by Google to improve the quality of speech recognition across Search.'

    They added that ambient recording is never transmitted to the cloud.

    Google's support site says that the firm records your voice and other audio, plus a few seconds before, when you use audio activation. This includes saying commands like 'OK Google' or tapping the microphone icon. Your audio is saved to your account only when you're signed in and Voice & Audio Activity is turned on. Audio can be saved even when your device is offline.

    The Mountain View company says it uses your Voice & Audio Activity to learn the sound of your voice and how you say words and phrases. It is also used to improve speech recognition across it products.

    To see your saved audio, sign in with your Google account information. This will enable you to see all the information Google has stored on the history of your account.

    They also reveal some of the problems users may experience being understood, as demonstrated by this repeated Halloween inquiry on how to carve a pumpkin, with Voice Assistant confused over what is being said

    To delete any, click on the three dots in the top right corner and choose 'Delete activity by'. This will take you to a window where you can pick if you would like to delete any information.

    This is not the first time that the voice search function has landed the firm in hot water. In October, users uncovered a quirk in some models of the Home Mini which meant that the gadget was constantly monitoring and recording their speech.

    To address concerns over the vast amount of data gathered by Google, it released its 'My Activity' feature in June 2016. If users have not configured their settings to avoid it, the data could include a list of all the website they have visited and what they have used their phone to do. But the feature also enables users to delete records of their online search requests and videos watched on YouTube in a single location instead of having to visit different websites or apps.

    The page shows a catalogue of pages visited, things searched and other activity, grouped by time. It also lets people look at the same timeline through filters looking at specific dates, and specific products like Google search and YouTube.

    If users have not configured their settings to avoid it, the data could include all the websites they have visited and their voice activity (pictured)
    The company is tying to make it easier for users to manage the vast pool of information that it collects about their online activities across phones, computers and other devices. It keeps track of everything you have searched for in Google's search engine, links you have clicked on after searches and even Google Map searches.

    To find out what information the firm has on your online activity, visit Google's My Activity page. Sign in with your Google account information and this will enable you to see all the information Google has stored on the history of your account. To delete any, click on the three dots in the top right corner and choose 'Delete activity by'. This will take you to a window where you can pick if you would like to delete any information.
