    All good. If you like heavily compressed music, missing most of its bass and treble.

    alac is lossless isn’t it?

    not that it matters for my ears, Metallica and Maiden from a Walkman in the 80’s ruined them years ago

    Yes it is. Apple lossless audio codec.

    They don’t actually stream or sell in Alac though. The only way to get that is to burn your cd into iTunes and select alac as the file type to create.

    (caveat, unless they’ve changed it for purchases in recent times - but as I binned iTunes off yonks ago I don’t know anymore!)

    I fear Facebook's reach and many others do for the sway they have on public opinion. They have good PR which while occasionally punctured generally shields them from the worse of the bad press they should receive. Left it years ago, though in fairness I was an intermittent user at best.
    No surprise on Boris being a sniveling subservient taco though. It is his tagline.

    I'm a bit more interested in the cyber warfare slant myself, but China has been naughty for a while with it's own population -> https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/01/technology/china-uighurs-hackers-malware-hackers-smartphones.html

    It is fascinating. As an emotional response one wouldn't fear and steer clear of Facbook - you wouldn't think visiting it would somehow "infect" you? Which was the response to using VK. There is a similar emotional response to Huawei and TikTok. Yet there is no evidence of the nation-state they were produced in abusing them to spy.

    The Chinese government send Uighurs to detention camps, enforced labour camps and Uighurs can not move around freely in China. The state spying on them via Uighur apps is the least of their problems. That said, do you think western intelligence services don't hack into Jihadist's mobile phones or track people using mobile devices? Would you mind them tracking jihadists travelling to fight in Syria or planning an act of terrorism? The US, UK and others probably have even more sophisticated means of tracing fundamentalists phones.

    I steer clear of them all, to be honest. This site is about as close as I get to posting on social media.

    (full disclosure - I do looks at a few tweets but never post)

    I wouldn’t - that’ll surely affect the sound quality?
