There's a world of difference (to my well-being and mental health, if nothing else) between working with, or even just talking with, people who are helpful, supportive, and constructive even when they disagree or have criticisms, and those who mostly, or even just often, just raise problems and point out flaws (even when, in their hearts, they mean well). The flood of negativity wears me down.

As anticipated in the poll of last week, I'm currently developing an unified resource tells you if your #smartphone or smartwatch is able to boot any (and what) kind of #Linux, with information on its current level of support (alpha to daily driver) and also aimed (in the limits this field allows) at relatively inexperienced users.

More details, and hopefully an usable/useful release, in the next days/weeks!

I'm really getting a kick out of producing the "Weekly Tech News" with my bud, @gbryant.

It's short. It's tech news. It's... just goofy. Makes me smile.

Google’s new reCAPTCHA has a dark side

This is ridiculous! Frankly speaking, Google's reCAPTCHA v3 is going to be a tracker script on EVERY SINGLE PAGE of a website, it's going to collect and analyze user's behaviors, and is supposed to determine whether the request is unwanted by some machine learning algorithms... 🤮 Totally insane.

Facebook recently argued in court that privacy on their platform does not exist, but at the same time tried to declare their stance as a privacy protector...

Confidential mode? Hrm.

"Much like how Google Chrome's Incognito mode doesn't totally prevent third-parties from seeing the websites you visit, Confidential mode doesn't keep the content of your emails from Google itself."

@agx @purism are there plans to make that Quake II demo available (repository / PureOS store)?

I think it would be a very cool way to show off the capabilities of the device to friends.
Who doesn't like a nice 3D demo? 😍
A more family friendly alternative also wouldn't hurt 😉
