I am excited about micromobility and car sharing and all of that but the most powerful transit technologies are already known:

+ Buses
+ Bicycles
+ Bike paths
+ Walkable mixed-use neighborhoods
+ Dedicated bus lanes
+ Free buses
+ Seriously, LOTS of buses & bike paths

O.MG! Evil Lightning cable about to hit mass distribution

"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

The anxiety I feel at the thought of from a to a (or no phone at all) is proof enough for me that I need to break my .

With the exception of some basic tasks like , , , , and , I can do everything else on a or computer. I just need to be more and with my .

Is that new free Cloudflare VPN for phones trustworthy?

Adam Lein boosted 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.

Got my OpenVPN virtual machine running nicely! Got a static route between the VPN & local subnets. I can remote to internal servers. But I still haven't figured out how to make SMB file shares show up for VPN users. :-\

People who've done FOSS/self-hosted home automation, what system(s) did you use and how well does your setup work?

Wow, we did not expect the level of interest you all have had in the #PineTime!

More info:
- Cost will be approximately 25USD
- Charging dock included in price
- Built-in heartbeat monitor
- Case built of Zinc alloy and plastic
- Battery life measured in days
- Sorry, can't run Linux itself. SoC is nRF52832, which uses a Cortex-M4 core. That's why we need FreeRTOS :)

This is the PineTime. A companion for your Linux smartphone, and new side-project of ours. More news coming in the future...

(If you have experience with FreeRTOS or mbed, and are interested, please get in touch!)

♲ The new twitter recommendation algorithm means that just replying to an account boosts their profile. When someone is being an ass, ask yourself if telling them they're an ass is worth being their PR agent for free.

Google Chrome on Android is almost usable! I wish Firefox Mobile would get their smartphone UI together.

We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.

Which is your primary browser on your computer?

Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

Retoot this to get more votes in.

Wow, Huawei just accused the US govt of launching cyberattacks to infiltrate its intranet and internal information systems: (h/t @Viss and campuscodi)
