If you hope to download Skype to keep in touch while you’re in China, you may be in for a rude surprise. Apple, Huawei, Xiaomi and other companies have been removing Microsoft’s internet calling software from their app stores in recent weeks in response to a crackdown on VoIP apps that don’t obey local digital security laws. The service still works if you already have the app installed, but you can’t download a fresh copy or pay for features directly through stores.

    "Humans have great technology that could improve their lives. However, humans always fuck up it's implementation through bad management, bad design, rushed releases, no testing, no resources, corruption and just not giving a fuck about anything. In turn, humans remain frustrated, in a life unimproved. Stupid humans."
