I just foolishly updated Linphone, 4.3.1->4.4.3.
I then saw the file size grew from 37 to 96 mb. The Changelog shows nothing to explain that.
So I am downgrading. I tried to find a settings backup like in CsipSimple, no way. I will need to set it up manually.
I am NOT AMUSED.
Magisk Developer gets employed by Google. Let's see if that is the end of #magisk ...
I just read about a new set of attacks on wifi connections. They are called #fragattacks. The most useful one would get you to use a malicious DNS server.
Using DNS over HTTPS (DoH) makes you safe against this attack, as well as other DNS spoofing attacks and censoring via DNS.
I found an app on Fossdroid which first puzzled me. Lucia. After some searching I found out what it is good for. In Germany there is a government sponsored app used to check in to stores, events etc. so they can trace you in the event of a corona infection.
The original app has some severe privacy issues. Lucia solves this by using no actual data :)
If you want an alternative to a mouse, look at this pen. It works on really small space.
If I look at the app below with Aurora Store or in the Exodus site, both say it has zero trackers.
If I check it with the ClassyShark app, it finds two trackers.
Looks like Exodus has problems.
Who needs 64 bit?
Well, it seems the New York 's NASDAQ should slowly adapt 64 bits, as one stock price is at the 32 bit border :)
I found an interesting app on Fdroid. The purpose of the app is to get access to Facebook events without an account. Therefore it does not use the Facebook API.
Example: Search for "Poland Rock Facebook", and you get:
Paste that URL into this app, and it extracts the event info, and can add it to your calendar.
I do not want to use Facebook, but some events are only posted there. Then this app helps.
A team of University of Virginia School of Engineering computer science researchers has uncovered a line of attack that breaks all Spectre defenses.
The Finnish seem already have created a word for a change in behaviour seen in lots of corona lockdown victims. “Kalsarikänni“ means getting drunk at home in underpants.
The word was already created before corona in wise foresight :)
If you use Tusky, look at Ariane, a Gemini browser. It works seamlessly, you click the Gemini link in Tusky, read it, and the back key puts you right back to Tusky.
Mt. Everest has its first Covid case.
I saw the app RethinkDNS on Fdroid. It claims to:
- let you use encrypted DNS
- block ads via blocktist
- be a functional firewall
Does anyone use it or have information about it?
Should you tell people you got the Covid-19 vaccine?
CNN posts some thoughts about that:
toGoZip is a cool app that lets you share pictures or whatever into a .zip file, using any apps share function.
The .zip file is saved in your download folder or whereever you want. You can then upload or attach it.
Nobody is flying to join Google’s Floc:
Brave, Vivaldi, Edge, and Mozilla are all out.
