Probably the main impetus for me to move to the city is so that I can make friends with people who would actually use cool technology like this with me:

@silas well sign me up. I love new tech. Also we just need to set a time and date and you'll have legit accomplished both tasks. 😂

@silas the only problem is that I won't use chrome. Only safari and Firefox. I don't trust the Google. 😂 but fr I don't.

@Er3mos @silas it's chromium based so all of the chrome extensions work on it but no Google software has it's tentacles in it. It's also driven by privacy software that blocks all ads and trackers out of the box

@lezorte @Er3mos I'm a fan of Brave! I also thought that their BAT cryptocurrency for ads was a cool idea. My only issue with it is that we're losing competition in browser technologies. You can choose either Chromium (Chrome, Brave, Edge) or Firefox (with Safari becoming the new neglected Internet Explorer).

@silas @Er3mos I didn't even think of that. But you're right. There's hardly any options anymore.

@lezorte @silas safari is really the only option for ios. Unless you enjoy not being able to change preferred browser.

@silas I wish Ubuntu would have done more with their mobile os. Even running custom android builds I don't trust the gaps packages. The info they gather is not ok. I use as little Google products as possible on ios.

@Er3mos Yeah, I'm hoping that gets stable enough. Android is Google's billion(s) dollar bet that they can harvest data from us at all times.

I'm thinking about getting Purism's Librem 5. But I'm afraid it'll become another abandoned linux phone project. :/

I think you'd really enjoy Shoshana Zuboff's "The Age Of Surveillance Capitalism" if you haven't read it already.

@silas I’ll check it out for sure. I’m with you on the Linux phones. Hopefully Google pulling Huawei’s android license will wake up the others to you can loose all that you have buil any moment google so wishes.
