Yesterday our oldest son (8y) took part in his first . My wife tried to take pictures using a Sony mobile. It switched repeatedly camera and screen of after showing a message that it's too hot.
My sometimes shows the red blinking led to make me aware that charging and system(?) have been throttled because of the phone getting too hot, but it did never stop working for me.
The day has been very hot at over 36°C.
I could learn why, how and maybe change it. She can't. .

»I’m mad. I’m honestly really upset about the current state of our mobile phone options. I want privacy and security when it comes to my communication devices, and I often lie to myself and say that’s the single most important feature of a phone. I don’t want anyone eavesdropping on what I do when I’m on my phone, but the reality is, every single thing I do on my phone is being recorded and sent somewhere.«

Okay, so: German court decided on Jan. 20th 2022 that sites will need to host Google fonts locally.

Visitors are otherwise entitled to receive 100€ in recompensation for Google fonts transferring IP numbers to Google servers.
Google uses fonts to track users, especially if they are logged into only one other server, where stored personal data might identify them.

Gehst du auf die #Website deiner #Covid #Testzentrum in deiner Umgebung und was findest du? Richtig, alles rappel voll bi unter die Übertragungsgrenze voll gestopft mit #Tracker'n 😱
Die ach so fancy #Web #Agenturen gehören abgeschossen wenn die nicht mal das Mindestmaas an #Respekt so wie #Datenschutz aufbringen können 😠
Es ist weder verboten noch muss darauf hingewiesen werden aber moralisch fragwürdig. Mit anderen Worten du bist schon deren Ware bevor du dich testen lässt 🤢
Was soll man tun?

Sehr guter Beitrag zur Kritik an Facebook (bzw. Meta):

perspective-daily.de/article/1

→ Kommentar und Aktivismus-Aufruf✊ dazu als Thread:

Der Beitrag fasst die inhaltlichen Gründe, die gegen eine (Weiter)Nutzung von FB, Insta etc. sprechen, sehr gut zusammen. Aber was soll man als Individuum oder (wichtiger) als Zivilgesellschaftliche Organisation, die auf die entsprechende Reichweite angewiesen ist, jetzt konkret als nächstes tun? Eine unmittelbare Profillöschung kommt da oft nicht in Frage.

Hi all, Geary is looking for a co-maintainer!

@mjog doesn't have enough time to to do it all by themselves any more, and so is looking for a hand in taking care of day-to-day tasks such as bug triaging and fixing, and working on improving the front-end side of the app in particular.

If you're interested, take a look at the issue tracker, and pitch on in!

If you have any questions, please thread them below or get in touch with @mjog 👇

Cheers!

Both proprietary and free software users care about their privacy, but free software users are actually empowered to *protect* it. They can audit the code and, if they have to, remove any questionable bits and still use the software. puri.sm/posts/audacity-telemet

Seit Jahren wird die Hardware immer schnell und trotzdem ziehen wir viele Applikationen in die Cloud um. Das ergibt einfach keinen Sinn. Sobald es um Privacy und Sicherheit geht, sind lokale Anwendungen besser.

So I spent the last few hours on taking pictures of cats with the rear camera of my Librem 5. Yep, that's my job now.

All credit for the camera support goes to Dorota, Martin and Angus: source.puri.sm/Librem5/linux-n @merge @purism

Because Nextcloud is easy enough for any admin to install on off-the-shelf hardware, or on a cloud-hosted service, it makes for an ideal solution for any individual or business.
