The screen is so small that my cellphone camera won't even focus!

web interface for uploading new ROMs and emulators.

Just got my new . It's a cool novelty item, but totally useless for playing games.

Button feedback is unresponsive which makes action games unplayable, and the battery drains too quickly for my liking.

Still impressive that they managed to fit so much tech inside such a small device, and a lot of the software included is GPL'd. Plus I really dig the save state feature.

We're overjoyed to announce that the FSF has received an extraordinary gift of 91.45 Bitcoin from the #PineappleFund, valued at $1 million! Huge thanks to the Pineapple Fund for this tremendous contribution to software freedom.

Finally found out how to get rid of those pesky ads on my "smart" TV and remove all of the Google/Sony spyware crap...

Couldn't find this info anywhere online for my TV (Sony XBR 900E), but you can disable each offending apk/process by running this adb command from shell. Should work for any other Android TV as well.

adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.nameofspyware.here

Or Facebook drawing a neat social graph across all your friends, family and interests, while retaining the messages you never submitted.

Brave new world.
