Probably late to the party, but the phone this couple-months-old article discusses will soon have devkits available. It is rumored the kits could be around $150! Always good to have competition.

Just realized Invidious (invidio.us) has a download feature for videos!

In case you don’t know what it is, it is a website to watch YouTube (even with subscribing to channels) without going through Google.

@kylerankin When you see cheap electronics, realize that often the hardware cost is subsidized by spyware agreements and selling user data.

Holy shit, Facebook is paying teenagers to install a root certificate on their phones so they can snoop on all of their internet traffic

Not a joke, this is actually a thing which is happening right now

Fake news is a byproduct of people not taking the time to read a full story and not thinking about the legitimacy of what they read and hear. Headlines are used as a tool to manipulate people.

That feeling when you follow someone for their great top post, and their post frequency drowns your entire feed with their self-important bullshit.

Don't take my unfollow the wrong way. You're clever and entertaining and I like you... For like 3 posts a day. But your stream of consciousness is a fire hose.


Hey guys, learned about this epic alternative to twitter from CCC. My first social network that I join, and happily! I'm really curious what will happen ;)
Thanks @fosstodon for providing this instance!
Just a few things about me: I'm a FOSS enthusiast (obviously!), I adore Linux and always strive for a deeper understanding of it, I am interested in infosec and cryptography and also care a lot about digital and analog games!

Just made the switch to Wallabag! I’m excited to learn all about it. I’m self hosting it as well! It feels so good to self host because I know I’m in control of it.

What are your guys recommendations on a VPS service as I would like to self host some stuff.

Or instead, if you recommend getting a physical device let me know which one too.

Thank you!

I’m seeing lots of posts today about how is tracking Android users via the SDK.

Is this really a shock to people? Like, really? This is Facebook we’re talking about here.

The answer is simple...delete your account.

And yes, I know it tracks even if you don’t have an account. So use a VPN, or don’t use that app.

Even if you don’t though, by not having a FB account you significantly reduce the amount of data they have on you anyway.
