“Why American Farmers Are #Hacking Their Tractors With Ukrainian Firmware”
This is why proper ownership over your products is important. If you can’t modify it, it’s not really yours
This is brilliant and not officially allowed by John Deere
"I take the hog waste and run it through an anaerobic digester and I've learned to compress the methane," he said. "I run an 80 percent methane in my Chevy Diesel Pickup and I run 90 percent methane in my tractor. And they both purr. I take a lot of pride in working on my equipment."
This is the kind of innovation these draconian contracts and DRM nonsense is preventing
It needs to stop
@elfio I think farmers there have more choices than over here so even if DRM exists, the corporations may not be putting the same kinds of restrictions. Or else, they’ll buy tractors from someone else
Also, consumer rights may be stronger over there than here
