Nothing else to do tonight so i am picking one of the La Liga 2nd tier matches to watch on LaLiga 123 youtube site. Probably the Deportivo one.

Now I'm a big fat dynamo!
Worth noting that La Liga got fined 250 K for using their app to spy on people's text messages and phone calls.

I thought they listened in live to hunt out pubs with illegal streaming, which means they must have took the Geo data too.

That seems cheap to me.

It's a very low fine for something like this yeah
for detail -- (1984 is here)

Spain’s data protection agency has fined the country’s soccer league, LaLiga, €250,000 (about $280,000) for allegedly violating EU data privacy and transparency laws. The app, which is used for keeping track of games and stats, was using the phone’s microphone and GPS to track bars illegally streaming soccer games, Spanish newspaper El País reported.

Using a Shazam-like technology, the app would record audio to identify soccer games, and use the geolocation of the phone to locate which bars were streaming without licenses. El Diario reports that fans have downloaded that app more than 10 million times, essentially turning them into undercover narcs. The league claims that the app asks for permission to access the phone’s microphone and location, and that the data — which is received as a code, not audio — is only used to detect LaLiga streams. The app does explain in the terms of service that by giving the app permission, users are consenting to LaLiga using their phones to detect fraudulent behavior, like pirated soccer games.

However, the Spanish data protection agency claims that the app didn’t make this clear, and has ordered LaLiga to take down the app by June 30th. The league plans to appeal the sanction, claiming that the agency doesn’t fully understand the app’s technology

The Deportivo match the other night was one of the best games i have seen for ages. And Malagas 2nd goal was brilliant. Looking forward to the 2nd leg.
