Facebook makes jokes downplaying its influence, but its dominance over users' Internet experience and online speech is no laughing matter, says EFF's @cSchmon. Let's have an honest debate about monopolies and the monetization of political polarization. independent.co.uk/life-style/g

New quantum receiver the first to detect entire radio frequency spectrum from zero frequency up to 20 GHz

The Rydberg spectrum analyzer has the potential to surpass fundamental limitations of traditional electronics in sensitivity, bandwidth and frequency range. Because of this, the lab's Rydberg spectrum analyzer and other quantum sensors have the potential to unlock a new frontier of Army sensors for spectrum awareness, electronic warfare, sensing and communications—part of the Army's modernization strategy.

Weber’s latest gas grills have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and digital displays - Your grill now has the same spec sheet as your smartphone

Weber is expanding its line of internet-connected grills to encompass its popular gas models, including the company’s entry-level Spirt lineup, offering Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity for tracking temperature and an integrated digital display.
I still have one of the original iGrill's with the wire probes and the dedicated Wi-Fi belt clip-on devices (before there were phone apps for that). It was great if you wanted to watch TV and not stand by the grill (and it worked well) but the whole point is actually to stand by the grill and all argue about how well cooked the meat is... Maybe built-in Spotify would have been better

@orangecomputer , I'm very new to Librem One and am planning on buying a Librem 5 and Librem 14 laptop in the near future in my effort to leave big tech behind. I noticed your posts on a User Group meeting in . Would this bee a good forum for learning more about Linux as a newbie?

My first time on a distributed social network. Just created my Librem account as well. Looking forward to leaving big tech behind.
