I prefer to choose protocol first then I can choose an app to use it.

I've done my best to summarize the recent Google antitrust complaint by Texas and 16 other states. It's *extremely* bad for Google and Facebook.

Dear @exodus community,

As your saw, seen now 5 days, submission of new applications on the platform is disabled.

In fact Google reject all our download APK download request.
We change the password of our accounts, we made several Google verification but nothing seems to work more than one hour.

We are looking for a solution or a workaround, but as you know we are all volunteers and our free time is not expandable to infinite. We need to take care of us, our family and friends.

please open source your HAL guys

damn, the amount of work effort required to reverse engineer / reimplement support for Android devices because the original support (BSP / HAL) was closed. it's such a waste, it doesn't protect your IP, it's not like vendors even bother 1/

Public bodies fail: Volunteers have to sacrifice free time to make CovPass app available to all

fsfe.org/news/2021/news-202108

After the successful liberation of the German Corona tracing app from Google services last year, volunteers once more have to step in to take over the government's task in order to make the CovPass app available to everyone.

That must be the digital agenda and competence of said "public bodies"…

“Research has shown that up to 52 companies can theoretically observe up to 91% of the average user’s web browsing history,” a senior Chrome engineer told a recent Internet Engineering Task Force call, “and 600 companies can observe at least 50%.”

#CalyxOS is leading the charge to deliver a truly #private mobile device, it is also #FreeSoftware. Since it is based on #AOSP, you can port it to lots of devices, even if they do not support a locked bootloader.

Currently only for a few devices available, but with proper by design in mind.

Privacy is like voting. An individual’s privacy, like an individual’s vote, is usually largely irrelevant to anyone but themselves … but the accumulation of individual privacy or lack thereof, like the accumulation of individual votes, is enormously consequential

what my girlfriend thought dating a software engineer would be like: "honey, I got an AI robot maid to do all our cooking for us"

what dating a software engineer is actually like: "if that microwave connects to the internet we're heating all our food with a blowtorch from now on"

Both #Apple and #Google have a lot to explain wrt #pegasus, IMHO. There is no absolute security in software, granted. But with all the risks for journalists and whistleblowers, they MUST do better. Again, IMHO.
