COVID 

I've been on strict quarantine and barely leave the house. We found out late last night that one of my wife's coworkers tested positive. We set up testing for both of us, but I have lost all motivation to do any work--dayjob or side-projects. I just can't find any focus with the noise of my brain and beating of my heart.

Hello. I'm a CS student interested in privacy and FOSS. Mastodon seems like a good place to continue my journey of privacy-minded tech.

I use elementary os on my laptop and graphene os on my smartphone.

"Why Security is harder than it looks:

Customers have come to expect buggy software
* Correctness is not a selling point
* Expensive and time-consuming software validation and verification is hard to justify

Solution: Confine security functionality into a small subset of functions, the [...] (TCB)
* In theory the TCB is small and relatively easy to analyse
* In practice vendors end up stuffing everything into the TCB, making it a UTCB
* Consumers buy the product anyway (see above)"

Privacy-focused iPhone users, what are your thoughts on this? I'm considering switching back to an iPhone and this is the first time I'm seeing the claim that they're worse than / the same as Google.
