Today: Craig Silverman, national reporter, ProPublica

Porn, Piracy, Fraud: What Lurks Inside Google’s Black Box Ad Empire (by Craig Silverman and Ruth Talbot in ProPublica, Dec 21, 2022): “In one example, a Bulgarian company helped scores of piracy sites with close to 1 billion monthly visitors earn money from Google ads. Most alarming, Google knew from its own data that these sites were engaging in mass copyright theft, yet it allowed the sites to receive ads and money from major brands such as Nike and HSBC Bank right up until we contacted Google.” ... and from Check My Ads Institute, an ad industry watchdog, Google is “sending billions of ad dollars everyday to unknown individuals around the world. It is effectively one of the largest dark money transfers in the world.”

I read this piece in ProPublica a week or two back. Infuriating stuff. It's so extra insulting that in addition to being invasive, Google also just sucks at what it does.

Thanks for asking, Handy. I keep running into delays. The latest one: I didn't realise I needed TSR-to-RCA cables and not just regular ol' RCA cables. So, they are on their way from Sweetwater. I'm guessing in the next few weeks. I hope!

Have a minute? open up your Youtube profile (if you still have one) and check out what google thinks you looked at:
YES ALL THOSE ADS YOU CLICKED OUT OF AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
In short , it's not going to send you those Googley targeted ads if it thinks you watched something you weren't interested in.
