Tadaa, a #pinenote showing its own schematics. It seems like the size of the pages of schematics is almost perfect for this.

Me he encontrado con esta lista de software libre o código abierto para Android. No está mal como referencia.

Bad news, I couldn't get good enough location on for with Mozilla Location Service, I had to install Apple's backend from @fdroidorg to get it. Also, it bugs me that I have to enable WiFi scanning with either of those. My phone has a GPS chip for that purpose...

…I’m seeing people say “just don’t use an iPhone.” It’s not that simple when everyday things like financial apps with two-factor authentication are locked into the two main platforms.

We need legislation to ensure critical services use open standards so you can use your Pinephone to buy lunch in the future.

It’s shocking how easily some folks jump to “just go live in a cave.” No, that’s not an acceptable alternative. We deserve to partake in modern life without sacrificing our human rights…

Daily reminder that for many blind people, #Apple is the most useful and productive mobile operating system. It's not that Android is hard to use, but when text selection, especially on the web and in email, is from hard to impossible, and when one cannot spell check what they've written, and typing is either a minor annoyance (braille (input not registering sometimes) onscreen keyboard (very slow usually) external keyboard (yet another device to manage)), you begin to understand why people who don't enjoy customization, or getting the "most" out of a device choose iOS, especially for accessibility, and the AI of image recognition and such. And FOSS phones, like the PinePhone, won't be accessible until Orca/ATSPI can communicate with touch screens, and that won't happen without developers.

So, when you get that urge to say "I told you so you Apple sheeple, you should have been using FOSS!" Try to remember that some people don't have much of a choice.

@aperalesf siguiendo un poco tu estela, y preparándome para mi migración inminente de vuelta al mundo libre, he cogido mi antiguo Nexus 5, le he instalado 14.1 (los nuevos no los mueve) y he tratado de configurar Tusky. Hasta que no he instalado Mull, basado en Firefox y con código no completamente libre no he podido... Por actualizar un poco la situación

Just signed! As an Apple consumer myself, I'm deeply concerned about this new content-scanning technology, which actually serves as a backdoor for my data.

If you are also concerned about that --> SIGN!

A #Privacy Tip: Choose 'web' use where possible vs installing the app (to restrict phone permission access from Apps).

“NSO Group accuses Facebook of trying to buy access to its Pegasus surveillance software so it could better track the activities of iPhone users.

The spyware supposedly would have gone into Onavo Protect, a VPN app Facebook pulled off the App Store back in 2018 for violating Apple’s data-collection policies.”

Still think I was being “alarmist” when I called Facebook “malware” almost a decade ago?

fossbytes.com/german-governmen Alemania usará Nextcloud para la nube de la administración de la federación! Parece que adoptan el modelo @aperalesf de SO privativo, pero a la hora de comunicarse estándares abiertos 👏

@onepict @pablomartan @alcinnz @robby @cadadr You need the ideology somewhat to drive far enough in a certain direction, but it shouldn't exclude people.

Mhh. Hope that made sense.
