🚨 Stop giving smartphones to your kids! 🚨

A friend shared Sapien Labs' report that highlights a deeply concerning correlation between early access to smartphones (& tablets) to young children and the increased likelihood of suffering from mental disorders as adults. (1/5) Image
The numbers are truly shocking:

(a) ~60-70% of women who were exposed to smartphones before the age of 10 experience mental health issues as adults

(b) ~45-50% of men who got exposed to smartphones before the age of 10 also face similar challenges later in life. (2/5)
I urge parents to resist the temptation of handing over a phone to kids always - while crying, or eating food etc.

Instead, encourage real-world interactions, outdoor activities & hobbies.

As parents, we have a responsibility to protect our children's mental health. (3/5)

Indian smartphone sales drop to lowest in 4yrs! That’s the catchy headline they report 😅😅

The important truth comes out only when one breakdown the numbers 👇 Image
Smartphones sold in India (crore).
’19: 15.2
’20: 15.0
’21: 16.1
’22: 14.4

This is what media circulates, calling it stagnancy.

But, a deep dive by segments shows, nothing’s stagnant at all:
<$150 📛:
👉 Vol -24% YoY
👉 Mkt share: 46% vs 54% last year

$150-300 🚀:
👉 Vol +15%
👉 Mkt share: 38% vs 36% last year

$300-500 🚀:
👉 Vol +20%
👉 Mkt share: 10% vs 8% last year

👉 Vol +55%

Obsolescência programada: 📱💻

É amplamente conhecido que determinados #gadgets, #carros e outras tecnologias têm uma vida útil deliberadamente curta, para fazer com que você substitua-os. Qual é a realidade?

O professor Lew Rockwell trouxe uma explicação para isso: ⬇
@gustavoramos @alan_schramm @38bitcoinheiro @RedpillOliver @R0nih @TonyoLucas…

Em que ele diz - ❝Pode chamar isso de obsolescência programada caso queira. Ela é programada pelos fabricantes porque os consumidores preferem o aperfeiçoamento à continuidade, a disponibilidade à longevidade, a substitutibilidade à reparabilidade ⬇
@gustavoramos @alan_schramm @38bitcoinheiro @RedpillOliver @R0nih @TonyoLucas o progresso e a mudança à durabilidade. Não se trata de desperdício justamente porque estão sendo utilizados os processos de produção de menor custo possível.❞

Como dizem os americanos 🇺🇸 “They don’t make ‘em like they used to” (eles não os fazem como costumavam fazer) ⬇

Chinese #smartphones continue to lead the market share despite crackdown by the Indian government…

By @sourabhjain24
Four out of five #smartphones sold in the June quarter in India were made by Chinese companies, according to reports. This is despite the crackdown by the Indian government on Chinese smartphone giants #Xiaomi, Oppo and #Vivo, which control half of India's smartphone market.
In addition to the crackdown by the government, there have been calls for a boycott of Chinese products in India since the two countries clashed in the Galwan valley in 2020.

FM #NirmalaSitharaman recently spoke about the crackdown on Chinese companies in the Rajya Sabha.

"#WHO is therefore supporting member states in building national & regional trust networks & verification technology. The WHO's gateway service also serves as a bridge between regional systems. It can also be used as part of future #vaccination campaigns..."

"Digitization keeps the world running. Digital #vaccination certificates like the EU's are key to this...The gateway will interact w/ other parts of the system already developed by WHO...This will also give hints for regional & national setups to be followed by the implementers."

“Are apps listening to people's conversations to improve ad targeting?” I was contacted by leading Italian newspaper @repubblica to comment on this controversy. Find my response in this thread.
#privacy #dataprotection #spying #smartphones #listening #ads #surveillance #apps 1/n Abstract of a paper we have written on the topicA simplified overview of the threat model
*** QUESTION 1 ***
Is it possible for apps (“commercial” apps, not surveillance apps used by law enforcement) to secretly record conversations of users? 2/n
Yes, this is theoretically possible. Apps regularly obtain from us the permission to use our smartphones’ microphones. And many apps are suspected to misuse this permission for dubious purposes (e.g., to track us via “ultrasonic beacons”). 3/n

Recent events have brought to the vanguard the susceptibility and threat vector smartphones present. In the recent past, we saw some very senior service officers getting caught in honey traps --
- through social media and the watchdogs caught unaware. The incidents came into light only after these culprits were already able to compromise our secrets. The quantum of leaked information has resulted in a major security headache for the Armed Forces.
A smart phone is just as common as a wristwatch. Ubiquitously one goes, someone has one, and is engaged in calm or stormy conversation. But what about the people one cannot see?

Aunque no supera sus expectativas, @Spotify suma 286 millones de usuarios (+31%, 130 M de pago), y consigna el cambio de hábitos durante confinamiento por #COVID19: ¡todos los días se parecen ahora al fin de semana!

Tras un descenso inicial en tiempo de consumo, vuelve a crecer la demanda de #música: curioso el incremento de #oldies (50's-80's), temas relajantes y canciones para niños, quienes cada vez optan más por ¿escuchar? vídeos musicales

🔗 (vía @lmcazalla) Image
Los adolescentes ya admitían su preferencia por @YouTube a la hora de elegir #música desde #smartphones: como apunta @lmcazalla, es tiempo para apostar por #videoclip más allá de su condición como vehículo promocional de canciones

Medienvertrag einer "Freien Schule" der #Waldorfpädagogik. Ist diese Einmischung noch vertretbar?

Keine Handys in der Schule, ok. Aber auch zuhause will die Schule #Handys, #Computer, #Filme und sogar #Hörspiele vertraglich verbieten. "Risiken und Gefahren" drohen!

Thread. 👇
Durch die Smartphone-Nutzung entstehe eine nicht näher benannte, gefährliche "#Sogwirkung", sie sollten nicht vor dem 14. Lebensjahr verwendet werden.

Über die Nutzung digitaler Medien will man vorgeblich aufklären - natürlich mit dem Fokus auf die "Risiken und Gefahren".
Der #Waldorf-Medienvertrag besagt:

"Wir verabreden, dass bei Spielverabredungen, Kindergeburtstagen und sonstigen Treffen der Kinder der digitale #Medienkonsum generell nicht erwünscht ist.

Das gilt für #Smartphones, #Computer, #Filme, #Spiele und #Hörspiele gleichermaßen".

🇨🇳 #China (1) | The question is no longer if, but how hard, the #coronavirus will damage Chinese economy (and its trading partners) in 1Q20.
🇨🇳 #China (2) | A blockage of 16 cities (~50 million people) coupled with the extension of the Lunar New Year holiday and prohibition for Cos to return to work soon implies that 1Q will fall below 6% for the first time since QoQ figures are recorded.
🇨🇳 #China (3) | The impact will probably broaden from retail sales, tourism/transportation...

When my wife was pregnant with our older child, she remarked one day how ironic it is that the first picture of every newborn is on FB! We decided right there not to post any pictures of our children on social media and have kept at it! #parenting #smartphones #screentime
Then I saw this article today and it reminded me of another crucial parenting decision we had taken! #parenting #smartphones #screentime
When she was born, another aspect of parenting we noticed was the huge dependence on screen time of new age parents. We were based in the US at that point and someone challenged us to not do the same. Right there we make up our minds not to #parenting #smartphones #screentime

¿Qué futuro se adivina en el cada vez más pujante mercado del #audio digital? El responsable de estrategia @IPGLAB aventura en @Medium sugerentes pronósticos para los agregadores de #música, #podcasts y otros distribuidores


TRES apuntes relevantes: 👇 Image
1/3 Como #música NO ES contenido diferencial, la batalla se juega en accesibilidad desde plataformas y dispositivos: @Spotify en @hulu y @Samsung, @AppleMusic en @Verizon, @amazonmusic en #Alexa, @AppleMusic en #Siri. ¿Futuro? Más #IA para que marcas se introduzcan en #playlists Image
2/3 A diferencia de #música (controlada por discográficas), el mercado #podcast es abierto y descentralizado, lo que dificulta su alcance masivo. Pero las adquisiciones @Spotify (@Gimletmedia, @anchor, @ParcastNetwork) le brindan posición única para liderar con contenido original Image
