Hallo mastodonten,

ik zou graag van twitter (@ellen_timmer) af willen. Maar wat ik hier mis: al die overheidsinstellingen die berichten posten; en interessante wetenschappers die proefschriften melden. Zijn die er niet of kijk ik niet goed genoeg?
Want wat mij betreft is het (en ).

Grt, Ellen

💙 New blocking rules! On 5th February 2020, Laura blocked one blocker blocker, fixed one site and blocked seven new trackers.

The rules will auto-update if the app is running. If it’s not, you can get the new rules by choosing ‘Update rules’ or ‘Check again now’ from Better’s menu.

A 18 year old hacker had access to sensitive data of 30.000 patients of the German Red Cross. He was even able to tamper patient transports.

After he quietly informed the organization, they only partially fixed the problem, so he reported everything to the press.

A happy ending to the Better Blocker saga

TL; DR: Apple have been in touch and offered us a way to migrate to our new not-for-profit without impacting the experience of existing Better Blocker (@better) customers.

Apple approved the Better Blocker iOS app after we censored the release notes as per their instructions (ar.al/2020/01/14/apple-app-rev).

So, we’re now at Step 4 of our plan (ar.al/2020/01/13/apple-says-no).

We’re going to leave the app up for two weeks to give people a chance to update before removing it from the App Store and submitting it under our Small Technology Foundation account.
