I've collected some hacks from our kernel team and tested the idle time on battery on my Librem 5 Birch - got almost exactly 6 hours while staying at 38°C the whole time. Not that long ago it struggled to reach 3h and stay under 60°C - and they're not done yet! :D

Shortwave is a client to listen to internet radios, with a database over 25k radios. It is about to ship its first stable version!

How does it look like on mobile? Gorgeous already. Thanks a lot for the app @haeckerfelix!

It looks like the latest kernel update reduced active power consumption by another 100-140mA based on my own measurements. I hear there are a lot more improvements in the pipeline once we switch from 5.3 to the 5.6 kernel.

Facebook just dropped an Engineering Whitepaper on how they made the new version of their iOS app faster and more reliable and it basically boils down to "Use native OS API calls whenever possible"

It's a 20+ paragraph screed that reads like a technical manual, and that's all it really says. "Maybe electron is bad and we should use native calls?". They called it "Project Lightspeed".

I'm screaming.

Apparently when you move a registered Google Fi SIM to a new phone w/o re-registering it w/ the Fi app, incoming SMS have 16 random chars appended to the end. I assume registration causes local apps to hide the text. I wonder what Google is using those strings for?

Based on @merge 's accelerometer work (lore.kernel.org/linux-iio/cove) and yesterday's work to hook iio-sensor-proxy into , enabling rotation is just a couple of more lines of code.

The video shows the devkit but it is the same for the phone. Please excuse the low video quality.
