How private and secure can Apple's products really be if their source code cannot be audited?

@purism
I'm not a dev but an app I definitely want is a good GPS navigation app!

I’m creating videos on tech from the 80s and 90s. Looking for the best alternative to YouTube where I can publish them. Suggestions welcome!

Most of my family and friends are still on and , so I still post there. But I occasionally invite them to join me on . I prefer and gentle over shouting and guilting. If we want people to join the we can’t behave like holier-than-thou jerks with a chip on our shoulder if we want to convince people there is a better way.

"Hong Kong software engineers ... say the discovered issue can allow a threat actor, such as Chinese law enforcement or intelligence services, to obtain the phone numbers users utilized to register a Telegram account, which authorities can then track down to protesters' real-world identities."

Lenovo High-Severity Bug Found in Pre-Installed Software
threatpost.com/bug-found-in-pr

"Another flaw has been found in Lenovo’s decommissioned Lenovo Solution Centre software, preinstalled on millions of older-model PCs made by the world’s leading computer maker. The vulnerability is a privilege escalation flaw that can be used to execute arbitrary code on a targeted system, giving an adversary Administrator or SYSTEM-level privileges."

I know some may be shocked by this , but I felt I needed to be true to myself and share what’s in my heart:

For the first time in my life, I love .

Maybe it’s like Winston at the end of Orwell’s book 1984 when he realizes he loves Big Brother (it doesn’t count as a spoiler alert - the book has been around for 70 years). But I don’t care. I have finally found salads I will actually eat - and not just eat, but enjoy!

I feel like this is a major turning point in my life.

I'm itching to try again. My last experiment failed due to faulty hardware on the G3 I bought. I want to try a Galaxy this time. I can get a brand-new-in-box S5 for around $120 USD.

I'm tired of the .

I recently created a account. I’ve downloaded music from it before, but am now making more of an effort to support .

I do currently subscribe to , and my family is enjoying our shared subscription, but I am often frustrated when it doesn’t have the music I want, or when music that I have added to my library suddenly becomes “unavailable” due to arbitrary deals.

It’s time to take back control of my digital media.

I think I forgot to eat breakfast this morning. 😬

This is a called "For the Dancing and the Dreaming". It's from the animated movie "How to Train Your Dragon 2". The instant I heard it, I knew I wanted to play it. In this video, I'm playing it on the beautiful C whistle my wife gave me for Christmas made by Nick Metcalf.

I feel such joy and peace when I play. My ancestors were from and , so it must be in the blood.

How much do news stories about the possibility of an economic recession actually contribute to creating a recession by fomenting fear and doubt?

If can help Me and my Family that would be great and Thank You very much if you Fundraiser by Dorothy Komula : Help me help my Dad and son url.komula.me/1

I really enjoy the “How to Train Your Dragon” films. Best experienced on a large screen with surround sound. Amazing animation, fantastic storytelling, brilliant score.

I keep seeing a lot of apologies for not being interesting or funny or positive, and I just wanna say:

You are a person, not a brand. You do not need to be consistently anything but yourself. If you need to take a break, that's OK. We're all people, we'll understand.

Apple locked me out of its walled garden. It was a nightmare
qz.com/1683460/what-happens-to

"All in all, I was locked out of my account for roughly two months. Had I not taken advantage of my internal Apple contacts, I may not have gotten my account back. ... The company I had given so much money to over the years could revoke my access to everything with just the press of a button."

Deleting your Siri voice recordings from Apple’s servers is confusing — here’s how: theverge.com/2019/8/2/20734681

“What happens on your iPhone stays on your iPhone” has apparently become “What happens on Siri stays on Apple’s servers, potentially forever.”
