I can see by the number of clicks in Monday’s news that folks are interested using other DNS servers. I’m working on an article. Look for it next week.

Stuff I bookmarked recently. Some off topic, some not:
Microsoft – Keep your devices and data safe using these simple security best practices
Beware of phishing scams – Always have a backup – Be careful when using insecure Wi-Fi networks – Don’t rely on passwords alone – Keep software current – Use privacy screens to stop “shoulder surfing.”
No arguments here.
Here’s the most common mistake people make that compromises their online security
The most common poor security practice was reusing the same password for multiple websites: 82% of people admitted to doing exactly that.
Fortunately passwords are dying.
US Senators ask DHS to look into US government workers using foreign VPNs
Two US senators have asked the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to look into the possible dangers of US government workers using VPN apps that are owned by foreign companies and which redirect sensitive government-related traffic through servers located in other countries –namely China and Russia.
Here’s a thought. A VPN for the government run by the government…
Google Researchers Say Hackers Exploited Two Zero-Day Vulnerabilities Patched in Apple’s iOS 12.1.4 Update
Two vulnerabilities that Apple patched in its latest iOS 12.1.4 update were successfully exploited by hackers before they were known to Apple, according to a top Google security engineer.
That isn’t possible. Everyone knows everything Apple is secure.
Netflix paid NOTHING in federal or state taxes in 2018 despite posting record profits of $845million – and even got a $22million rebate

AMD, Nvidia Have Launched the Least-Appealing GPU Upgrades in History
Yesterday, AMD launched the Radeon VII, the first 7nm GPU. The card is intended to compete with Nvidia’s RTX family of Turing-class GPUs, and it does, broadly matching the RTX 2080. It also matches the RTX 2080 on price, at $700…But as things stand today, the consumer GPU market feels stuck in an unwelcome position where the only generational performance improvements available are reserved to those who can afford to jump at least a price bracket for their next GPU. Historically, there’s never been a need to do that. Hopefully, there still isn’t.
Yup. Overpriced and underwhelming.
Jeff Bezos just confirmed what we all knew: Nudes are no big deal
That headline (and article) is ignorant. It is a big deal. If you don’t think so there is something wrong with you.
I don’t understand the whole nude selfie thing. I mean, you understand that those things never stay private right? And dudes, most women don’t want to see pics of your junk anyway.
