“I offer my sincerest condolences to @waze,” Cegłowski tweeted, “which unlike HKmap is an app specifically intended for evading law enforcement, and which by Mr. Cook’s logic must therefore brace itself for imminent removal from the App Store.”

A laptop where you can swap out parts as easily as you can on a desktop tower! https://pocketnow.com/panasonic-toughbook-fz-55-review
♲ @email@example.com: @Apple 8. We once believed the App rejection is simply a bureaucratic f up, but now it is clearly a political decision to suppress freedom and human right in #HongKong. It is disappointing to see US corps such as @Apple, @NBA, @Blizzard_Ent, @TiffanyAndCo act against #freedom

O.MG! Evil Lightning cable about to hit mass distribution https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2019/10/02/omg-evil-lightning-cable-hits-prime-time/
"Embedded in it is a tiny Wi-Fi transceiver that can operate as an access point or a wireless client. When the victim plugs it into their computer, an attacker within radio distance can connect to the cable with a mobile app and use it to manipulate the computer."
Whatever device you use, be careful about your cables!
cool software recommendation: xpra
it's kinda like screen for x, it lets you run applications remotely over ssh and stuff, including mirroring the active display
@dallin I've been trying to ween everyone I know off of SMS/MMS so we don't have to be phone slaves anymore. :)
@dallin I switch to a Nokia 3300 periodically to stay grounded. :) Thankfully email still works!
@purism There's actually over 85Million smartphones out there running KaiOS, too, but I'm all for the success of PureOS. https://techcrunch.com/2019/02/25/kaios-now-with-85m-feature-phones-shipped-doubles-down-with-google-carrier-deals-and-more/
I'm really looking forward to seeing how the Purism Librem 5 evolves. https://pocketnow.com/the-privacy-friendly-librem-5-is-now-shipping-for-cool-people
@purism I need Gnome Evolution PIM management program on that phone! :)
With the exception of some basic tasks like #calls, #SMS, #IM, #email, and #GPSnav, I can do everything else on a #laptop or #desktop computer. I just need to be more #intentional and #organized with my #time.
#Coy.im is a fairly new, cross-platform, desktop chat app, for the #Jabber network (#XMPP protocol). It's privacy-focused, for example it uses #TOR and #OTR encryption for all chats by default (not #OMEMO, interesting choice). Also, they're avoiding implementing some features, like highlighted links, they say could add unnecessary complexity and more risk of bugs and thus security flaws. They say they are looking for people willing to do security audits on their code:
I wish nobody used #reCaptcha. Not only does it forces users to allow Goggle to run scripts in their browser, making users do unpaid mechanical turking for Goggle is just rude. If it contributed to a data commons, like training free code AI, I would't mind so much.
HP's Z series is among my favorite creative professional computer lines. The ZBook 14u is nice, but I'm more of a Zbook X2 guy.
@EclecticEclipse Yeah, it sucks that they've been going backwards with tablet UI's. :-/
