A new tech thread

Any IT guys on this forum that can help with social media 'issues'?
The reason I ask is that there are many different businesses in our town that are acting rudely and unfairly to their customers with regards to the usual covid situation -  wearing of masks, signs in doors, (un)social distancing etc
(the usual moronic problems from the closed minded)
I would like to know, so we can leave negative reviews on 'poogul' reviews - and other review platforms including faycebuk etc.. (but specifically poogul)    
- would like to know a way of creating an account with poogull without having to put in a telephone number when registering with poogul.  (as have used that number before).
It seems whenever creating a new email address and then starting up a new gmail account they now want a telephone number to send a 'verification code' to? 
Is there any other way around this.  Please PM me if you have any advice and many thanks.....

If temporary numbers don't work, you could always just buy a throwaway SIM card. That's what I do instead of using my main number. Just buy in cash, and don't register the SIM. No need to top up with a lot of them too as you won't be making calls or anything on it. My local Co-op sells SIMs for 99p. They could still track you via cameras in the store when you bought the SIM, but I doubt they would go through all that effort unless they think you're a serious threat.

Unity purchases Weta Digital’s visual-effects tool suite for $1.6 billion
https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2021/11/unity-purchases-weta-digitals-visual-effects-tool-suite-for-1-65-billion/

 

Major deal continues the slow merging of movie-creation and game-creation tools.

 

Unity, the company best known for its line of popular video game engines, has announced plans to purchase the tech division of the Peter Jackson-led, New Zealand-based visual-effects studio Weta Digital for $1.625 billion in cash and stock.

 

The acquisition means that Weta's suite of visual-effects tools, popularized in movies like Lord of the Rings, Avatar, and Wonder Woman, will eventually be integrated into Unity's cloud-based workflow and made available to millions of users, the company said in a press release announcing the move. Unity will also acquire the 275 engineers that build Weta's technology and "a library of thousands of incredible assets."

 

The Weta visual-effects team itself will remain as a standalone entity known as WetaFX, which will still be majority-owned by Jackson. Unity expects that entity to "become Unity’s largest customer in the Media and Entertainment space." Weta Workshop, which focuses on practical effects and props, will also remain separate.

 

Weta CEO Prem Akkaraju told Variety that there was some apprehension about making the company's exclusive tools more widely available to the public through this deal, but Weta's goal of inspiring other creators won out in the end. “We’re Jimi Hendrix, and now we’re selling guitars," he said. "We think this world has many, many more Jimi Hendrixes.”

 

While Unity made a name for itself by offering cheap-yet-robust game-creation tools, Hollywood has turned to Unity and to Epic's competing Unreal Engine for pre-visualization and real-time motion capture for effects-heavy productions.

 

The Weta purchase comes about a year after Unity Technologies raised over $1.3 billion in a stock IPO and months after the company purchased game-streaming upstart Parsec for $320 million. Unity's game engine is free for users with less than $100,000 in annual funding and revenue, or it's available to larger companies as a $150-per-year, royalty-free subscription.

This is straight off the Gov website. An app (via a wrist band most probably as seen in photo) to track EVERYTHING you do regarding activity. A stepping stone towards  ID 2020 and it's need for total surveillance. First the band and then the chip.

 

Also note the reward system they've conveniently linked into the program.

Straight outta Taiyuan!

Some of those numbers work on that site, however they don't work on big platforms like Twitter, FB etc.. I had the same problem and found out that it's because they are using VOIP based numbers to receive sms and they can be blocked by the big tech companies.  Also, as they are public facing numbers, make sure you don't use them for any sensitive accounts!

 

FYI, I ended up using a provider called quackr  as they offer non-voip temporary numbers.

Putin’s Military Wishlist: 5 Israeli Weapons Russia Would Love
https://www.19fortyfive.com/2022/03/putins-military-wishlist-5-israeli-weapons-russia-would-love/

 

'Nevertheless, Moscow and Jerusalem have substantially stepped up their military cooperation in recent years, a trend that has made the United States somewhat nervous about the technology it exports to Israel. Israeli drones have flown in Russian service in the war in Ukraine, and Israeli electronics have helped improve Russian systems in other ways.'
