We’ve always suspected that this was true …

Don’t laugh. I’m one of those who has a sticker over my laptop camera. Now it seems that is a really good idea! Instagram (and others, including Reddit, LinkedIn, TikTok) are listening and watching you when they shouldn’t be.

They have promised user privacy and guess what? They lied.

Ironically, it seems that Apple (via an upgrade to their I-Phone operating system) is responsible for blowing the whistle.

Music of the day – Autumn Leaves

The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold
Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall.

Autumn Leaves. Written in 1945. Music by Hungarian-French composer Joseph Kosma and lyrics by poet Jacques Prévert. The Hungarian title is “Hulló levelek” (Falling Leaves).
