Norton begging for its life by offering me a better deal on an anti-virus subscription as I close in with a look of grim determination
"Please sign in with a Microsoft account"
I don't want one
"Don't worry! You can remove it later once you've signed up."
"Please set up a PIN"
I don't want one
"Your device requires a PIN. Please set one now."
"Please tailor your advertising experience."
I don't want ads
"Great. We'll still show you ads, but please be aware they will be less personalised."

I feel like I'm doomed to watch people in the games/tech space evangelise Kevin Rudd over and over again for the rest of my life despite his deep, documented personal and policy failings.
And why? Simply because he attached his name and brand to the NBN, and he promised them fast download speeds, and, depresingly, that is enough.
It doesn't matter that he wrote and passed the most destructive industrial relations legislation in decades, handing bosses total control of workplaces and sending us into the recession we're about to have, that he threw refugee kids into detention, and that everyone who has worked with him has described him as an arsehole of unimaginable proportions, or that since he left office he has engaged in the most petty asinine bullshit.
He promised them fast download speeds so he's Good. And nobody cares. I just cannot deal with this at the moment. Fucking hell.
