I'd love to find a distro that supports MacBook Air 2017 Broadcom wifi out of the box.
So far I've tried Pop!_OS (nope) and @elementary (nope).
Any suggestions?
The Mac doesn't have ethernet so having to sort it out separately is a real hassle.

There's nothing like a 42 hour fibre connection outage to show you how crap LTE actually is.

If you have any hardware (routers, docks, anything) branded as Jetstream, Wavlink or Winstars, unplug it and throw it away. Do it now. cybernews.com/security/walmart

If you put an user and a in a locked room, who would go deaf first?

If anyone still thought that was a company that respects your privacy, that bird has well and truly flown.

Hey Apple users:

If you're now experiencing hangs launching apps on the Mac, I figured out the problem using Little Snitch.

It's trustd connecting to ocsp.apple.com

Denying that connection fixes it, because OCSP is a soft failure.

(Disconnect internet also fixes.)

My @PINE64 PinePhone has finally cleared customs without any fees to pay. Should be here by the end of the week.

Just taken delivery of a new MX Keys . Oozes quality, significantly better than the Magic Keyboard with Keypad that it replaces. Backlit as well.

New IV now despatched and waiting for its DHL flight. To say I'm excited about upgrading from to would be an understatement.

I removed my Google account from my phone to see if the world would end. It didn't. Email is IMAP, contacts/calendar are , messaging is , maps are maps.me, and app updates are . No telemetry, no problems.

My @PINE64 has now reached my country and is going through customs clearance. Should have it in a few days.

Thinking ahead to using my @PINE64 phone, I want to use messenger but that needs an master installation for the phone number.
Running could be problematic but now I see there's a Signal client called - will be interesting to try it.
