Just because a developer is making a "free" product, doesn't mean they don't ALSO have the right to create income streams for it. And you have no right to take that away from them.
Plus, an awesome new "Music For Everyone" segment by the guy who wrote the Linux For Everyone theme!
@lesateliersphv Je peux te demander de quel région du Québec tu es? 🙂
@lesateliersphv Hey mon ami! Je penses à aussi me débarasser de tous mes réseaux sociaux autres que Mastodon, comment ca se passe pour toi jusqu'à présent? 🙂
In the last year Google has banned: the Element app, the LBRY app, and several Fediverse apps. If you get all of your apps from a single corporation, be it Google or Apple, you should make an effort to change that.
If you have an Android phone F-Droid is an alternative app repository, and it’s very easy to install! All of the previously mentioned apps have been available from F-Droid throughout being dropped from the Play Store.
If you have an iPhone, please consider other options for your next device. Apple does not respect you enough as a user to consider you possibly more capable of deciding what you should install on your phone than they are. That is absurd; please stop rewarding this behavior with your money.

@CrowderSoup I really like your blog. I have the same setup. Same Oryx Pro and Pinephone. I'm David from twitter by the way. We talked about the PinePhone yesterday... I prefer Mastodon if you do too.
@linmob I did this not long ago to show that to my friends, its of course easy if you have two pinephones.
Personally I would put special focus on scrolling in GTK3 apps,(cawbird, tootle, giara) how horrible it was at the begin and how nice it is now. The fixing of this scrolling issue was one of the most important fixes of the year to me.
Chromium is my new favorite web browser on #Pinephone 😁
It's fast, fit the screen and perfect for creating webapp launchers.
There is a strange blurry effect though.
I'm using ungoogled-chromium from the AUR on #ArchLinuxARM by @danct12
The future is going to be awesome 🌈
Apple announces AirPods Max headphones. Here's my quick review without having ever seen a pair:
- Digital Crown: sweet, I hate touch controls on headphones
- Case enabling low-power state: cool, almost as good as, you know, an actual switch
- Case looking like a glorified designer purse: yikes
- 20h of battery time: meh
- Price: priceless
- Lightning connector: fuck off already 😂
We tested both outgoing and incoming calls (for economical, not technical reasons), with headset and without. It did show a 4G indicator on the second call (did not photograph fast enough). Remember how the phone used to get really hot during calls? Not anymore!
Potential deep sleep wake-up timing issues aside, I regard phone calls a solved issue! 🎉
