AirPods Pro 2019: A Worse Version of Something not that good

In 30 October 2019CE, and 2 Days After they were announced, Apple released the AirPod Pros (Officially AirPods Pro), which was supposed to be a new and updated version of the AirPods 2nd Generation, which are a pair of wireless earbuds also sold by Apple. Apple still sells the AirPods 2nd Generation, though I am not sure if they will be a Gen 3. The AirPods Pro are for 250 USD, for reference the original AirPods and Generation 2 Costed 159USD, or 209USD if you also wanted the wireless charging case.  For the AirPod Pro you need iOS 13,2 or watchOS 6,1 or tvOS 13.2 or and macOS Catalina 10,15,1 while the original AirPods worked with IOS 10 on iPhone 5. While it does work on devices which are Bluetooth 4, some features only work on iCloud. The design looks like if you took the ear buds from the Euro Store, and then removed the wires and added some weird features. Most of the features in the 1st 2 generations sucked, and they hardly improved, if at all. You still have what I think is by far the biggest problem, they can easily fall out or get lost.

New Features in AirPods Pro

The New AirPods Pro have better noise cancellation and allow you to hear things on the outside. Such as if you were at work and you wanted to hear what a co-worker was saying but still also wanted to hear music, well these have a built in microphone which allow you to do that, though I honestly do not see what stops the sound cancellation and the microphone from conflicting each other. The sound quality has also improved according to Apple.  They brought Back an the older style of headphones which were common when the iPod was released in 2001. The case for them has also changed. The new case is wider, and in general larger, but possibly thinner.  Apple claims it can hold 24 Hours of charge, and the AirPods Pro can hold about 5 hours, and then can be recharged from the case in 5 minutes. These are bold claims which I honestly doubt are good for the battery. The case also supports wireless charging, which you could also have in Generation 1 and 2 for 50USD more.  These were the main features in the AirPods Pro.

Verdict on AirPods Pro

I do not recommend them. They are not innovative ion most ways, just Gimmicks. Noise Cancellation can be found in many traditional computer headphones. You can also get a referbished pair of AirPods on Ebay for 100GB£, or a New Pair for 129GB£, But I Honestly do not see why you would do that when you  can just get a knock off which can do almost just as good as normal AirPods For a lower Price. Even if you wanted EarBuds, You can get some for 11GB£ on Ebay
200€ is not a price to pay for some headphones that do not do anything interesting, they are super likely to fall out, and even if you just wanted to look rich by having Apple stuff, you can just sacrifice a little quality and buy knockoffs. The AirPods Pro look awful in my opinion, especially compared to originals. I doubt the average person can really find a big difference in Sound Quality, and many Audio Files and older recordings may not even be able to take advantage of these new features without taking up tonnes of Storage Space or Internet Bandwidth. I just see no benefits to having to pay the price for a product which in a lot is ways is inferior. While you may often see them on sale, its often not that big, and you would be better off with a cheaper option.

Update 27/09/2019

Its been a while since I have been on. Tonnes of hosting issues and switching I have not been able to post all  that much as well as other issues. I am back now and Hope to post here more often. I have for now token down the forum as I think its harder for uses to find my posts and there are not as many people on it. I am going back to WordPress again as I have a lot of experience in it.  I have put my main posts from the last site on this one, in no particular order, often with little modifications, though looking back it looks like I had lots of spelling and grammar issues which I need to fix, I will fix them eventually, Thank you.

Windows XP Ends Support today.

April 9, 2019 is the day support for Windows XP or particularly Windows Embedded POSReady 2009 will end. It may have already ended. Embedded POSReady was the last version of Windows XP. A registry hack can be used on normal XP to receive these updates, and I recommend this. Sadly, there will unlikely be any more updates after today officially from Microsoft. Though MS has provided updates for some unsupported versions of XP when certain malwares have come, but this is rare and may never happen again. Also, The Windows Update Center will acquire a higher level of Encryption and Windows XP may not support it and may no longer be able to receive updates that already exist, you could still update Windows 2000 until 2015. I will be providing updates today on .
The end of Windows XP is sad for me, Windows XP was my childhood and one of the last good versions of Windows. ReactOS still is similar to Server 2003 which is similar to XP, and may be a good replacement.

Other Products are ending support on the same date: You can see here:

For security to make up for the updates that will be gone. Today A browser was released, I plan to put more XP Stuff. Seized By Law Enforcement and no where to be found

On 8 May, 2019, was seized by the FBI, Europol, and other LE agencies. The owners were both Israeli citizens. 1 was living is Israel, the other was in Brasil. They were accused of money laundering and kickback money. They had an affiliate thing going on where they got commission from everything bought, and also possibly received money for ranking their marketplace. They had tones of money in their dwellings, so they did earn a lot from this. They were both arrested. Their court files can be found on the web. When you go to now it shows an image of seizure.

Their Onion link does not appear to do anything.

I have since then notices that no longer works and their social media has been taken down. I do not know when this happened, and the Wayback Machine on does not index it, but it is probably pretty recently. I can try the Wayback Machine on their social media sometime, but I do not know if DarkWebNews will be back, if it was taken down by LE, or what happened. Their site has Whois guard, so it is hard to find info on this site, and there is less info about it on the web, but if I had to guess, I would guess they are from Panama, since it said that in the WHOIS still.

It seems like recently the government has been cracking down on Dark Web stuff. There is suspision that they were part of the shut down of Dream Market, and they shut down Valhalla, Wall Street, and I think some others recently. I am very upset that the state is trying to get rid of these sites. They help bring privacy to online shopping and the web in general. The state is just choosing to be like Big Brother. Surprisingly, the price of Bitcoin is still going up despite these places being the hotspot of purchases with Bitcoin.

What are Guerilla Satellites (SEO)?

A Guerilla Satellite is a mass-made website meant to reach the top of search engines using black hat methods for a short time and bring traffic to another site without hurting the site you want traffic to. It is often done by making tons(tens or hundreds or thousands) of super simple sites (like landing pages) on often free domains (such as .tk, .ml, .ga,, and others) and cheap unlimited eBay hosting and putting a no-follow link to your money site. You then do black hat methods (such as invisible text, spun content, keyword stuffing, and most particularly,) on these Guerrillas Satellites to get them ranked high for a while (I have recently heard these are called churn and burn or rank and bank sites). The idea is you will have so many of them that once they start ranking high, they will reach the 1st page of your keyword, it will start to bury your competitors down pages of search engines. Once 1 Guerilla Satellite gets de-listed or penalised from Search Engines, there will be many more to replace it. Some search engines, such as Bing Powered ones, rarely seem to delist sites. So on these search engines, you would be ahead of your competitors with by many pages for a while (until someone makes a site with higher Domain and Page authority or Keyword Optimisation comes up). You can also do Negative SEO on your competitors (which may initially slow down the process and help them rank at 1st, but once Google and other search engines notice the attack these competitors may be penalised speeding up the process). Even if you do not do Negative SEO on your competition, you can still beat some of your competitors with these sites. The results to your competitors can be devastating. Many of your competitors who are at the top often require a steady flow of dough(money) to keep their business going. Without this dough, they may go out of business or be stunned(unable to grow) for a long time. While your competitors are getting beat down, you should continuing do SEO to your money site (main site you want to rank) so it can eventually be ahead of your competitors after the use of Guerilla Satellites or On the top page with Guerilla Satellites. You can also make many permanent Guerilla Satellites so when you decide to stop making chrun and burn ones you will still have many other sites on the top pages so your competitors are still hurt even without the rapid creation of Guerilla Satellites. Please be sure to make the links to your site on Rapidly made Black Hat using Guerilla Satellites NO-FOLLOW. This is because, if you use Do-Follow, it is likely Search Engines will count these sites as Backlinks, and since they use Black Hat Methods, it may do more harm than good to have them as do-follow backlinks. Guerilla Satellites are not too effective on more competitive keywords and more established competitors who have old domains with more authority than can be built in a month. To make Backlinks, I often Use GSA Search Engine Ranker, and to Index, I use GSA Search Engine Indexer. GSA Indexer I believe is worth the 20USD for the full version. You can often Scape websites for GSA Search Engine Ranker with GScraper or ScrapeBox. Backlink Automators are needed for these kinds of websites. So I recommend these tools.

EDIT 16/09/2019CE: With the new algorithm, Starting March 2020 NoFollow will now have more power than they once had, making potential to harm your money site, for this reason, I would suggest making a site which would look like your site and make the buttons for other pages go to your site also using no follow. You may also be able to switch rels for your spam (to mix it up), but they will still have similar effect. See Info on the new Changes HERE

Guerilla Satellites Are Good For:
Sites with Medium-High Competition
Burying your Competitors
Making a Monopoly
Having it look like there are different companies when it is just you
Getting your competitors out of business.

Guerilla Satellites are not Good For:
Super High Competition Keywords or Super Established Competitors.
People who don’t use them and suffer from their competitors using them.
People who like competition

Tools Recommended:
GSA Search Engine Ranker
GSA Search Engine Indexer
GScaper or ScrapeBox Emails (For making many Freenom Accounts, Freenom often limits accounts)
eBay Unlimited Hosting (Often Cheap, and Holds unlimited Sites)

16 September 2019 Google Algorithm Update

On 16 September 2019, Google Annouced rel=”sponsored” and rel=”ugs” and well as some changes for rel=”nofollow” in the future.

Sponsored is supposed to be for paid links. They have similar value to nofollows to my knowledge and you can potentially be penalised for not using them.

UGS stands for User Generated Content, and is stuff like comments, forums, article submission sites, web 2,0 sites, and similar sites. It seems similar to sponsored, but we are still waiting for effects.

Nofollow links will now have more potential to rank and get your site indexed. This change will start in March of 2020 CE. In the past they were suppose to not have much if any effect on your ranking (mostly the latter), but now the “may” have effect on your rankings and indexing (they were used to an extent to stop indexing of a site). This has negative effects on some SPAMY strategies like Guerilla Satellites. You may also be able to switch rels for your spam (to mix it up), but they will still have similar effect.

It is still kind of unclear, but it does not seem site owners need to implement these new rels on their sites.

Over here at Asbestosstar we will not use these new rels. On default all likes will be dofollow. Down with these changes! They suck for seo.
