    Amazing chance to buy here as the market overreacts to inflation fears. Inflation will have to rise to levels likely not to be seen in a decade for it to really impact mega cap who are cranking out record quarters. The Fed confirmed just last week no increase in rates in the near future. These standard deviations are gifts. They are great entry points to own the largest, most profitable companies in the world.

    Surveillance Giant Google Accused of Collecting Sensitive Roku’s Customer Data

    Roku called Google an "unchecked monopolist" in the latest development of a spat between the two companies.

    The comment was made after Google announced on Friday that it would allow users to access the YouTube TV app through its main YouTube app on Roku's streaming platform, a move that Roku called "anticompetitive."

    "Google's actions are the clear conduct of an unchecked monopolist bent on crushing fair competition and harming consumer choice," Roku said in the statement Friday.
    Roku also said, "we have simply asked Google to stop their anticompetitive behavior of manipulating user search results to their unique financial benefit and to stop demanding access to sensitive data that no other partner on our platform receives today."

    On April 30, Roku removed the YouTube TV app from its streaming platform because its deal with Google ended due to terms that Roku did not agree with. Those terms included what Roku says was a request from Google to share more sensitive customer data. Roku said it did not ask Google for more money as part of what would've been a renewed contract. Roku wanted Google to stop manipulating customer search results, among other asks.

    "Google is attempting to use its YouTube monopoly position to force Roku into accepting predatory, anti-competitive, and discriminatory terms that will directly harm Roku and our users," Roku said last week.

    AS PREDICTABLE THE DOMINANCE OF ROKU CAN & IS GOING TO BATTLE WITH YOUTUBE TV (NOT YOUTUBE).

    On Friday $ROKU flexed Their Dominant Streaming Platform Operating System going right to ROKU Customers in a Letter or Better said WARNING to GOOGLE/ALPHABET as follows:

    “ "We cannot accept Google's unfair and anticompetitive requirements that would allow for the manipulation of your search results, impact the usage of your data and ultimately cost you more," (ROKU).

    Breakdown:
    YouTube itself and Those whom have DOWNLOADED YOUTUBE TV will continue to get Services on THE ROKU O/S PLATFORM. However, as NEW Consumers CUT THE CORD and go to ROKU O/S The Dominant Streaming Media Platform YOUTUBE TV will not be an option and Subscribers which sign up for an Average of 4 Streaming Services Per Household will be Driven To SLING, HULU, & FUBO TV as The CABLE TV ALTERNATIVES of which YOUTUBE TV has Struggled as The Higher Price Service has roughly +1Million Subscribers of The +52Million ROKU OS PLATFORM USERS. YOUTUBE itself will Stay on The ROKU OS however, $GOOG, $GOOGL will Continue to loose This Battle with $ROKU as up until now has Made Deals With All Other Cable TV Alternatives and Premium Content Providers even branching Out into The Streaming Music to Upcoming Streaming Gaming Companies of which several like FUBU TV will be Offering Online Betting from Casino to Sports Book & a Draft Kings & Fan Duel Fantasy Games of Skill in Their Dominant Live TV Sports Offerings Integrated Through ROKU OS on a FUBO Platform...... adding to This $FUBO is now offering Beyond Sports with Family and Alternative Entertainment Offerings which were Heavily Advertised Last Quarter on Loading The $ROKU OS Directly on The Home Page which as I Predicted would Substantially GROW The $FUBO Alternative on The $ROKU OS and as I’ve Stated We Took IMMEDIATE ACTIONS as We Branch Out In NEW and Exciting GROWTH COMPANIES in The $ROKU ECOSYSTEM. ROKU OS is Flexing its Muscles in The Arena Which it Dominates as They WILL NOT be pushed around by GOOGLE’s PRACTICES as They are getting A Dose of Their Own Practices that had Propelled Them in SEARCH and are Loosing by This in STREAMING Which as ALL IN THE DEVELOPMENT COMMUNITIES KNOWN THE ROKU SEARCH can Easily take A Bite into That HUGE PIE $GOOG Dominates not to mention They have laid out a Cookie Cutter Plan for $ROKU to simply follow Which will FURTHER PROPEL GROWTH GOING FORWARD AS INTERNET OF EVERYTHING WILL BE ROLLED OUT BY $ROKU and as Long as $GOOG, $GOOGL Continues Their Practices it’s Only Growing $ROKU into The 1 Stop Shop for The Internet Of All Thing’s. For The Price Action and Market Cap(s) There Are CLEAR Winners RIGHT HERE AND RIGHT NOW AND I FOLLOW THROUGH WITH MY CONVICTIONS THAT ALWAYS END BETTER THEN GREAT OVER THE LONGTERM. This is NOT HARD to See The BIG PICTURE. Should You have Bought Apple or Microsoft in The Early Year’s? BOTH!!!! It doesn’t take a Computer Scientist or MEDIA MOGUL to Tell You how This Show Ends...... This is so EASY A 4th GRADER CAN FIGURE THIS ONE OUT. This was as easy as after The Insider Lockup in $ROKU and the Price Action was $18’s PPS and We ALL SEEN THE TCL BIG SCREEN HDTV’s DOMINATE THE ELECTRONICS DEPARTMENTS EVERYWHERE AND THE ROKU OS STICKS SELLING OUT THAT CHRISTMAS SEASON BY BLACK FRIDAY AND THE CONTINUED BUYING AND BUYING OF ROKU OS AND EVEN THE SPEAKER BAR WITH ROKU OS TOLD YOU NOT JUST THEATER FOR THAT BIG SCREEN....... MUSIC LIKE $SPOT & $SIRI All while ROKU Was Playing NICE AND FAIR AND DEVELOPED A PLATFORM 2nd TO NONE SO I AM TELLING EVERYONE THAT FRIDAYS ROKU LETTER IS THE PIVOT WHERE ROKU USES ITS DOMINANCE AND SUPERIORITY TO ROLL OUT THE FUTURE AS THEY SEE FIT ALREADY DEVELOPED AND PLANNED FOR ANY OCCASION JUST SITTING IN R&D READY TO GO ANYTIME.

    Do I EVEN NEED TO SAY WHAT & WHERE I HAVE GONE TO? It should be obvious. It’s like Buying SAMSUNG when They Sold Boom Boxes in The 80’s..... Same CONCEPT. This is LIMITLESS and I’m back to Vacation. Barring SOME BIG EVENT I WILL BE BACK IN A FEW WEEKS.

    Everyone Have A GREAT VACATION & GOOD INVESTING!!!

    If I have to be 'stuck' with any tech stock in the entire world during a massive selloff, I instantly choose Google. Long 500@$890 and holding long-term for $3,000+. To anyone considering a first time buy, though scary during a sell off, best to make that 1st time buy at a pullback price. JMHO. GLTA

    EU’s top privacy regulator urges ban on surveillance-based ad targeting

    The European Union’s lead data protection supervisor has recommended that a ban on targeted advertising based on tracking Internet users’ digital activity be included in a major reform of digital services rules which aims to increase operators’ accountability, among other key goals.
    The European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS), Wojciech Wiewiorówski, made the call for a ban on surveillance-based targeted ads in reference to the Commission’s Digital Services Act (DSA) — following a request for consultation from EU lawmakers.

    The intervention by Europe’s lead data protection supervisor calling for a ban on targeted ads is a powerful pre-emptive push against attempts to water down legislative protections for consumer interests.
    In his opinion on the DSA the EDPS writes that
    “Given the multitude of risks associated with online targeted advertising, the EDPS urges the co-legislators to consider additional rules going beyond transparency,” he goes on. “Such measures should include a phase-out leading to a prohibition of targeted advertising on the basis of pervasive tracking, as well as restrictions in relation to the categories of data that can be processed for targeting purposes and the categories of data that may be disclosed to advertisers or third parties to enable or facilitate targeted advertising.”
    It’s the latest regional salvo aimed at mass-surveillance-based targeted ads after the European Parliament called for tighter rules back in October — when it suggested EU lawmakers should consider a phased in ban.
