I wrote about why Google’s FLoC seems to have flopped. The company told me it’s still early days for the technology, but seemingly every week some big new player comes out against it https://t.co/W5ohipw99Q https://t.co/IhH0JHT6Ca

Google is gradually moving from introducing new communication apps every four months to simply renaming existing ones twice a year. But the overall goal remains: to ensure that under no circumstances do you ever know which Google product you are using https://t.co/SnW5B8pF1H https://t.co/hO85CI7So6
