While not FOSS related, we're going to be posting an interview we did with the team who is working on localizing Summon Knight Swordcraft Story 3 for the GBA, in the next few days. We're also going to be posting a personal blog post regarding why the site has been so quiet. We thank you for your support.

Has our dream of a Linux dumbphone come true?! Back in September of last year we wrote the following article: librefree.me/i-want-a-linux-du and it appears our prayers have been answered in the WiPhone! wiphone.io/ you can find more information in the following video from our friend Jose Briones(whose podcast we were on earlier this year): youtube.com/watch?v=oj7eRbCRfp

Hello everyone, just a heads up, I won't be reviewing the Librem 5 USA as I really don't have anything good to say about the product. With the release of the PinePhone Pro, I don't see any reason to get the Librem 5 now(especially given the price difference and lack of performance).

In a huge victory for human rights, the European Parliament calls for a ban on biometric mass surveillance and facial recognition. 😀🥳 Let's keep fighting for privacy! 💪

Congratulations to @PINE64 for the #pinephonepro, the new device has a lot of potential (support GLES 3.2, Vulkan, OpenCL), maybe Linux phone games soon?

It's also mindblowing that they managed to sneak the #pinebookpro SoC into a device.

If you see this when updating your device today (running Arch Linux ARM on @PINE64 #PinePhone / #PineTab):

:: Starting full system upgrade...
:: Replace linux-pine64 with pine64/linux-megi? [Y/n]
:: Replace linux-pine64-headers with pine64/linux-megi-headers? [Y/n]

Allow it to do so, we've renamed our kernel package. Once update is done, you can reboot as normal.

Improvements for those of us who run daily on their :
- the media player allows to skip in songs/podcasts (by @ollieparanoid)
- headphones show a different icon
- music player gets muted on headphone unplug

While Mobian does not directly support running #Android applications, it seems that some users find running them via #waydroid on the #pinephone surprisingly nice. Our wiki has some installation instructions if you want to try it out.

@FreePietje You're looking at the flashback picture of the Pinephone (original) announcement ;)

The team at @LinusTech@twitter.com reviewed our newly launched #Fairphone 4 to uncover exactly what makes the Fairphone different. From tech specs to fair specs – this review covered it all 📱🌿

Playing with GNOME OS Nightly and some of the core apps already ported to GTK4.

GNOME 42 is going to be so good 🚀

In 2011, Arne (left) and Matthias (right) started working on Tutanota. Today we can offer not just the most secure mailbox, but also a fully encrypted address book and a zero-knowledge calendar. Stay tuned for more! 😀🥳

Love the light and dark themes/wallpapers provided by Olauncher! One of the best launchers on @fdroidorg. Also @GrapheneOS has given us stellar battery life on the Pixel 4a.

Auditor app version 30 released: github.com/GrapheneOS/Auditor/.

See the linked release notes for an overview of the improvements and a link to the full list of changes.

Most of us are guilty of distro-hopping at some point or another. With that being said, what is that one distro you always come back to? For us it's been Manjaro Gnome. @manjarolinux you've got us all hooked.

Today I wanted to find a way to watch IPTV on my #Pinephone.

After multiple tests, I had the best experience with MPV combined with mpv-iptv (github.com/gthreepw00d/mpv-ipt)

Gotta admit, we love @Tutanota and their product. Helps us run our blog incredibly well.
