"The company won't stop #Facebook from tracking you, but it will have to ask you for permission first.

Why, then, is Facebook so worried? Because it knows what everyone else already knows--that when given a choice, most people will choose to not allow Facebook to track them.

If that happens to be bad for Facebook's business, that isn't #Apple's fault. It just means that Facebook's business model is based on something most people would prefer it didn't do."

You can't make this stuff up:

github.com/MSPaintIDE/MSPaintI

An IDE with MS Paint as editor. You edit the source files in MSPaint, save them and MSPaintIDE compiles / runs them automatically.

Some cool companies/groups that are focusing on modularity.

- Pine64
- Fairphone
- MNT Reform
- Framework

Any that I’m missing? Would really love to see this trend continue and see traditional “non-modular” devices become modular.
