Apple Stole My Button!

~ MORE ENMUZZLING? So what’s the deal? Is AppleCorp helping YouTube muzzle the masses?

In the latest iOS update on the iPad (bought in loving memory of my techie Dad), something went missing which had been there in every single previous operating system I’d used on it. The Youtube “Share With FaceBook” button in the Apple iPad YouTube App. No, seriously.

As all of you who follow Teh Bink’s every word, deed, thought, and passing whim will know, in the cool of the evenings whilst I rest on the fainting couch, I was in the habit of posting a few, nay, even a half-dozen YouTube videos I found interesting, topical, or cool via the iPad.

Then comes the latest update. No button.

And-there-it-was-gone

Shut Up, They Explained

Sharing awkward information is one of the things the controlling elites hate about social media; GoogleTube is working on hiding news on Las Vegas, Twitter is punishing people by bannings and the like. The news & views sorting-algorithms all tilt hard to the left. The great silencing may be approaching. Only kitty-pictures, fake news, and bad jokes in the new Utopia.

Unlevel-Playing-Field
New Social Media Corporation ‘Level Playing Field’.

Not saying it’s a conspiracy, but such ‘accidental’ censorship is damned weird, and makes no sense. It’s also really inconvenient for people who use Apple for stuff… maybe it’s time for a mini-laptop, where Goog-Apple-Twit-Tube can’t block me from sharing videos– yet.

Or, it could just be more digital global wars… is Google pressing Apple to slight FaceBook, via limiting YouTube on iPads? Might well be.

Anyone else noticed this new ‘feature’?

Asketh,

The Binks

    I was participating in a Periscope live video this week and made a comment in which I included the phrase “the religion of hate”. Twitter flagged me with a warning within 2 seconds, saying that my participation would be terminated, blah blah blah. This was no doubt an algorithm designed to, well, censor that very though from the marketplace of ideas, lest it illuminate someone’s mind as to the real nature of — the religion of hate.
