Web reading auto updates ADd and general distraction

I just noticed on this Moto e6 it doesn't give 2 fucks what u were doing. By default it's behavior is install update and or restart when instructed by Moto updates, I'm guessing Google can require it and certainly the carrier can. 


I haven't looked but it's likely this can be disabled. That's not the point .

Point is hours in day availablefor any task that requires concentration are finite as is

ability to transcend trade for anyone is somewhat a function of nutrition and stress level. 

Other factors include other people interrupting.

The last thing we really f****** need are devices we pay for that reconfigure themselves requiring more concentration without our permission.

Then the European Union goes and puts requirements in that result in every f****** website having another pop-up banner of some form.

Something like 10 years ago study in the u.s. determined if an average American tried to read every contract a device presented them with then and remember this is 10 years ago actually it was probably more like 13 it would require more hours then we're in the year

But now I feel it's getting to the point where to try to read anything between the pop up wanting you to accept the privacy contract or the lack thereof contract, some sites will then give you a pop up asking if you want more f****** pop ups in the form of alerts, then you have little tiny blocks of content separated by ads maybe more pop-up ads. Still managed to maintain attention through all of that your device might just f****** restart

What are the implications? well maybe corporation x just successfully lobbied Congress to make you a literal slave and that was in fine print on one link hidden at the bottom of the page you never made it to


Granted that's an extreme. S

slope is a fallacy was popular for a long time in American politics and on news. It's not always as the main problem. It can be  is the correct way to present it.

The impled always never of the news is basically normalizing splitting (Google psych splitting )

Appeal to authority also can be a logical fallacy

The really devious part is authority knows incrementally making things worse or taking rights usually accomplishes it

If you want to see scientific evidence slippery slope isn't a falicy here's some similar concepts 

Perception threshold 

River bank erosion 

Human retna sensitivty near it (or near uv)

Stress induced epigenetic changes doesn't quite fit here but i think you should Google it anyway.
