PSA: MyFitnessPal has been compromised leading to 143M accounts to have their weakly hashed passwords, usernames, email addresses and IP addresses leaked.

Considering that UnderArmour owns MFP, and that password resets go through your UA account, I would garner to say that you should change your password if you're signed up to any of the UA-owned services.

I figured out the appleid.apple.com issue.

It sniffs your User-Agent.

If it says Linux, Bad Gateway error.

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK

IT WORKS WITH A WINDOWS UA

IT WORKS WITH A BSD UA

IT WORKS WITH A GOD DAMN OS/2 UA

NOT LINUX

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU

One pro is that it's a two-person team and at least one of them is in the fediverse, so that's a plus.

I propose to launch a campaign called .

Everyone can share their favorite tool(-s) that use on a daily basis as well as other interesting tools for your opinion.

No software categories. The main requirement is that the project must be open source.

And I think I'm gonna start.

What I'd hope for is that in the future, would release upgraded versions of further individual modules (like they have with the camera), so that users could upgrade only the parts of their phone that they want to, instead of buying a new one.
You know, like with the desktop PCs of yore where you'd just upgrade your RAM here or your CPU there instead of buying a completely new PC every few years.

Also, currently all profits from Toot! are going towards vet’s bills for a guinea pig who is doing poorly but trying her best.

This isn’t a sales campaign or fundraiser, just a note that if you’ve bought Toot!, you’ve helped a cute little guinea pig.

One time I saw someone do this:

* Open safari on their iPad
* Type "google"
* click the google result for google search
* Type Facebook in the google search box
* Tap Facebook search result
* "Why aren't I logged in, I have the app installed" (app is on home screen)

If this is the level of understanding of web / app technology there is little hope currently of doing much about surveillance capitalism.
