  • The thing behind me is the Centre for Computing History's Megaprocessor. It plays Tetris.

  • You are forgetting one very important thing. "The biggest lie that was ever told is that the Internet is free". People don't read newspapers anymore and read their news online. Those journalist and writers need to be paid... and how are they paid? Exactly... advertising. Its an ecosystem that has worked for over a 100 years... it just changes form. Don't asume your news is "free"

  • who's here cuz timeworks?

  • I came into this expecting to learn nothing. However, I learned a bit about reader view and how it has been abused. Thanks :)

  • Your Comment Glitch

  • How about mess with the cookies and have some sort of 'fix' apply false data for advertisers to then acquire? Instead of trying to stop them data mining people, overload them with data.

  • When the pinned comment is made before the video was uploaded

  • Tom :"advertisers are not people" me: an advertizer 😲

  • Bro this was uploaded 1 month ago and his comment was posted 5 month ago. Can someone explain to me how this is posible? Ar i am just blind.

  • And then Facebook bought Oculus and charged only $400 for a VR headset, and now you get ridiculed for valuing privacy at all.

  • What annoys me is pop ups that my ad blocker can't block.

  • Kind of disappointed this didn't end with a vpn ad. 😁😁

  • advertisers enable content like this to be produced.

  • I'm not going to consume many ads, period. Give me a viable, unified micropayment system and fair pricing (maybe 2x, 3x or 5x as much as you would make if I was clicking on an ad) and I would pay you for reading your articles.

  • The newsletter pop ups blow my mind... I mean does it really work on people? On me it has the opposite effect. But I guess it must work (otherwise why would the web designers bother) and that is mind boggling to me.

  • admit that you come there to see if timeworks is right

  • the video is 1 months ago and the pinned comment is older than the video

  • i love how the comment is older than the video

  • Wonderful video. Conclusion: use only free software if you care about your privacy

  • When T...

  • Watch the video carefully because the web (including CS-tv,) is a mess.

  • Thanks for ending on such a positive note, Tom!

  • Anyone else notice the Doctor Who E easter egg?

  • I love the little Easter Eggs in the ads in the beginning, like the joke about Tom’s biggest f*ckup, and the DW reference.

  • my personal solution: no cookies at all. only if it's crucial to view content then I might choose to allow only the ones original website needs. drawbacks: you need to know a bit how a website work in order to decide if either website is broken or it's because a cookie. also using an adblocker with a lots of filters. plus have an antivirus. with all this efforts still there is tons of information google can get. just incredible. this is not the WAY! shouldn't be this way 😔

  • Any one else is here for timeworks? 👇

  • LOVE the "Vote Saxon" popup!

  • Thanks capitalism

  • Bottom line: Use add blockers.

  • Thanks for explaining what cookies are

  • I like how no one is talking about " video was made 1 month ago and comment is 5 months old -_-

  • They should hire a line monitor like they used to in grade shcool.

  • This is the reason why i enabled Ad blocker extension!

  • Keylock vpn..ur trapped in..

  • Oh no... i’ve just been reminded of those “game ads” you get when... you watch your online enthusiasm stuff... along with some “pill” ads You know what I mean everyone... Oh also forgot about that Iphone spin wheel thing... my god that’s a scam...

  • If they track me they better stop giving me Grammarly ads everywhere when I already have it.

  • Wait, Google is one of the largest ad companies?

  • Saxon for President 2020

  • Y isn't anyone talking bout' the date of the comment 🤔

  • Let's be honest, you all came from Timeworks

  • Thank god for Adblockers

  • Why is the comment upload before the video was made

    • Because the video was made multiple months ago, got uploaded to youtube but was still marked as private. So somebody with the specific link to that video can already watch and comment on it. In conclusion, this video was just published a month ago

  • Ironically the vid is just riddled with adware.

  • 5:40 And some websites doesn't even let you say "no". If you say no it just send you to about:blank

  • I appreciate the vote Saxon thing

  • site: get do you want me to use cookies? me: no site: sorry you don't meet the requirements to access this web page

  • "Vote Saxon" I loved it !

  • This was uploaded 1 month ago and it has a comment from 5 months.. ago?

  • VOTE SAXON 🖤 We love a Who reference!

  • why your pin say 5 month ago it was made 1 month ago

  • This video is posted on Nov. 23'd, 2020. Tom's pinned comment is from 5 months ago... I am watching this on December 31st, 2020... a month after its release--- Thank you for blessing me with your knowledge kind time traveler.

  • Every time I watch one of Tom's videos on computer science I feel like we are living in some sort of dystopian nightmare future.

  • i think its funny that when the sites give you a switch for different cookies they don't actually tell you which is "on" and which is "off" we all just assume that black means off, but it would make more sense for these info hoarding Aholes to make you think you've turned everything off when infact you've turned it all on.

  • Vote Saxon

  • Those Superman Easter eggs. Brilliant, Tom and William.

  • Tom scoot comment is 5 months old while video is 1 months old

  • They should make these illegal. Everything should be off by default.

  • Vote Saxon!

  • NoScript > Ad-Block

  • 5:23-5:27 NO means NO

  • 0:17 "Vote Saxon" Who's gotten to you

  • Vote Saxon 😂😂😂

  • The cookies is the scary part yet most of the comments are focused on ads in general. I work in online ads and FYI too many ads absolutely drives down a sites traffic. We know this. In our industry, execs try to balance how many ads they can show with how many a user will tolerate e.g. user experience is important. But these ads also allow people running food blogs, for example, to make money off that blog, make more content with that money, and eventually make enough to turn that blog into a career. But yes we know the ads can be annoying. Every suggestion I make involves less ads. But just like supporting youtubers, these ads allow higher quality content to exist for free. Cookies are where it becomes greedy. They let advertisers pay more money to target specific groups, which isn’t surface level bad, but allowing random companies access to detailed profiles on us is a recipe for disaster.

  • at 6:26 , right after you mentioned Google Chrome and Google search, I got an advertisement for Google ads ._.

  • Like in the South Park episodes...it's becoming increasingly difficult to differentiate between an article and an ad

  • I love the "content" joke at 0:45.

  • Thats just sad.

  • vote saxon

  • This is why i use a Adblock, because websites are too annoying with the crap they want to throw in my face.

  • This is why I've disabled JavaScript by default

  • Well, let me go and delete my cookies....

  • 👀👀 VOTE SAXON ❎

  • Any one else really want a cookie now? Like the chocolate chip kind

  • Irony not lost on me...... video on privacy interrupted by youtube adverts......

  • Or, just disable Javascript.

  • Nice superman reference

  • VOTE SAXON

  • Joke's on you advertisers - I'm broke. Advertise whatever you want.

  • Who is here after timeworks video "This video's comment is older than the video"

  • Fact: Look Her Tom Scott Comment *4 months ago* right? and look her description created *November 24 2020* *And Her Comment Is Older than her video*

  • The most infuriating thing is when the site in response to a "no cookie" request deliberately takes it so literally as to not store a cookie with info about that "no cookies" preference. Instead, one of the million "third party" vendors or whatever is the option that enables the "yes/no" cookie, disguised behind some obscure company name. The advertisers and site designers will take the absolute piss at any given opportunity to try and squeeze a few extra cents. The ony thing i've seen work against the ever repeating cookie popup is, ironically, an adblock filter blocking that site element from loading.

  • brave users stand up :sunglasses:

  • Wait that comment is illegal

  • Time works did a video about you

  • Claim your 'free cookie' here

  • Do I get milk with my cookies?

  • PUT THAT COOKIE DOWN

  • You don't have a right to go on someone else's website and force them to not to allow cookies on you. Websites are the private property of their owners and you have no right to go on websites if you won't follow their rules. If you don't want your privacy invaded, don't go on sites that you know are taking away your privacy.

  • pov: u were looking for Tom Scott comment

  • who is here from timeworms video?

  • And your comment is also a mess. Your video is 1 month old and your comment is 4 months old

  • “Vote Saxon” *Doctor who music intensifies*

  • ADBLOCK

  • After watching the latest video (about the greatest title sequence), I went back to this video and looked for the small details. Picked up on the "renticulating splines" joke, as well as the reference to work being replaced with "content" (see Tom's video on the onosecond).

  • I started using Google because of no ads, but their business model has put ads on every website except theirs.

  • Can anybody explain would happen in the UK in terms of GDPR after brexit?

  • did you add the reverb post recording?

  • VOTE SAXON

  • 0:17 vote saxon that’s a doctor who reference
