When Apple vocally switched sides to support California’s “right to repair” law, I knew there had to be a catch. Cory Doctorow explains the catch eloquently.

Apple uses VIN locking or parts pairing which is a process also used by car makers, printer manufacturers & Medtronic ventilators that requires a secret code from the manufacturer to enable replacement parts to be recognized. Bypassing it violates the DMCA which as a federal law beats state laws.

Turns out I didn’t need @element as the @purism has #Matrix built into the native chat app. This is measurably getting better and better as a #security and #privacy phone. I’m still installing it for better chat room capability but THIS IS AWESOME.

What's happening around #godotengine right now is nothing short of it incredible. This number already grew by almost €20k (!) since I last posted it just a few days ago.

Big oil coined ‘carbon footprints’ to blame us for their greed.

Climate-conscious individual choices are good – but not nearly enough to save the planet. More than personal virtue, we need collective action.

Reminder that Apple uses a technology literally invented in 1984 to brainwash their users into thinking anyone using a non-Apple device is poor.

This lie is rampant and reinforced by the billionaire CEO of Apple, the richest company to ever exist.

Apple intentionally makes their devices bad at communicating with other devices because it means kids without Apple devices might get bullied into giving Apple more money. Apple knows this, and plays into it.

Poking around JDK 21 assembly output for Panama native calls, and it’s looking good! Here’s the body of a loop calling a “helloworld” native function, with everything inlined up to the “linkToNative” downcall, which receives native function info and redispatches. Nearly direct!

Turns out you on a #Librem5 you can install android in a container and it runs at native speed. The android window shows as an app, so I can just use an android app if I find a native version lacking, neat!
