marks the date when humanity’s demand for ecological resources and services in a given year exceeds what Earth can regenerate in that year. In 2021, it falls on July 29.

yet another smartphone rant, god i hate phones 

where i live we must have an app for corona-chan installed if we want to travel.

Say whatever, it's literally a surveillance app. And it's useless for any other purpose than tracking people's every movement, forget about the virus thing.

Guess what? Now it wont behave on rooted phones. Why the fuck do you need my phone to be unrooted? This shit clearly isn't for anybody's health.

If only things like the pinephone started the smartphone trend we wouldn't be in this cesspool of a "mobile ecosystem" that dictates you have to surrender all rights of your devices to other people if you want it to be usable.

You just can't expect to just browse a web page and ALSO be able to click the volume control and have it come up within five seconds! That kind of bizarre abuse is just beyond the capabilities of any machine, isn't it.

Maybe everyone should learn to set up their own server if they want the convenience of cloud services.

The knives in your kitchen can be used as murder weapons. Permanent markers can be used for vandalism. P2P file sharing protocols like BitTorrent can be used for piracy.

Nothing's bad just because it can be used to do something illegal.
