Saint-Etienne va installer 50 micros dans les rues pour détecter les bruits "anormaux" https://www.nouvelobs.com/societe/20190301.OBS1042/saint-etienne-va-installer-50-micros-dans-les-rues-pour-detecter-les-bruits-anormaux.html
I'm old enough now that some adults are 10+ years younger than I am. It can feel embarrassing when I encounter a much younger person who is more thoughtful, more knowledgeable, or generally better than me in some way. It is a very silly thing to feel, but I think also an understandable thing to feel. "I've had more time to grow, why aren't I that good?" People focus on different goals. People have different journeys. My inadequacies are my own.
It would be so easy to turn that embarrassment outwards. To let it become an unhealthy anger. To invent reasons why the young person was wrong, or hadn't earned what they accomplished.
I think I understand angry old people better now, and I respect them even less.

"For example, they recently added a hidden empty div over YouTube videos that causes our hardware acceleration fast-path to bail (should now be fixed in Win10 Oct update). Prior to that, our fairly state-of-the-art video acceleration put us well ahead of Chrome on video playback time on battery, but almost the instant they broke things on YouTube, they started advertising Chrome's dominance over Edge on video-watching battery life."
Please stop using the word "stealing" for piracy. You're not stealing from ANYONE. It's not even a lost sale because the students weren't going to buy those books anyway.
The moment you say "stealing" you're buying into their narrative and they win.
Microsoft Edge engineer describes how Google sabotaged Edge browser performance via constant code changes to its services.
Also remember a while back a scandal about YouTube breaking in Firefox via similar tactics. That monopoly charge can't come faster.

"GM captured minuted details such as station selection, volume level, and ZIP codes of vehicle owners, and then used the car’s built-in Wi-Fi signal to upload the data to its servers. The goal was to determine the relationship between what drivers listen to and what they buy and then turn around and sell the data to advertisers and radio operators."
