l'inventeur de l'iPhone, Tony Fadell, appelle à se retourner contre sa propre création et à en reprendre le contrôle. Un aveu d'échec pour celui qui est à l'origine du design de l'appareil qui a révolutionné le genre et qui s'écoule toujours à des dizaines de millions d'exemplaires

Today, we’re launching the crowdfunding of a laptop that doesn’t have glued-in batteries, soldered-in storage or "security" chips that prevent you from exercising your right to repair. MNT Reform is a daring design that is as open and repairable as we could make it.



Data will become even more valuable, and with it, data misuse through AI will also become rampant. We’re already seeing governments and private entities roll out contact tracing tools which have poor implementation and pose severe threats to data security and privacy. As these entities have realized, data can play a huge role in limiting the impact of viral phenomena – diseases, protests, misinformation….the list goes on."
