The problems had a variety of causes, Cloudflare wrote, all of them down to clashes with the address: some routers are configured with 1.1.1.1 as an internal IP …

Yo Google, I'mma let you finish, but China, I mean, Huawei's P20 is the best

It has been a long while since I heard some whalesong at ear-splitting volume. It takes me back to Nokia's final years as the world's No. 1.
