Purism collects half the money for Librem 5!



Purism does better than I hoped! After a little bit more than half of the time (33 days passed, 27 still to go), they have half the money (51%) of the 1.5 million USD they need. I'm positively surprised!

Now the other half it is up to you! If you like to have a phone that respects your privacy (so does promise Purism), runs a mainstream Linux distro (PureOS/Debian by default, the most important point for me personally), and has strong focus on freedom and security, please consider supporting their crowd funding campaign!

As long as they do not reach their goal there is no risk. Your credit card will not be charged before they reach their target. If the reach the 1.5 million USD, they will charge you. Then there is the risk, that they will fail, of course. I think, that they will not fail, because they have some experience with building hardware and they have capable people on board. But, hey, no risk, no fun!

Student Lets #Thief Steal His #Phone, Spies On Him For Weeks To Make This #Documentary



Film student Anthony van der Meer had his #iPhone stolen and the thought that a stranger had access to all of his #personal #data really concerned him. What kind of person would steal a phone? Where do these phones end up? These were his biggest questions. To get answers, Anthony had another phone stolen from him on purpose, but this time he followed the thief using a hidden app and made a captivating documentary film about the whole process. http://www.boredpanda.com/find-my-phone-thief-stolen-smartphone-spying-cerberus-anthony-van-der-meer/ #surveillance #tracking #gps #mobile #mobileshttp://www.boredpanda.com/find-my-phone-thief-stolen-smartphone-spying-cerberus-anthony-van-der-meer/
 
I'm trying to reduce my cell phone usage gradatively every day. Call it a data diet if you may; I envy in a good way those who manage to live a 21st century life without a phone, perhaps I'll reach that level one day. I'm planning to take these extra steps these coming weeks to force myself to reduce phone usage when moving around the city:
  • If I'm going anywhere closer than a car ride away from home or office, I won't take my phone with me.
  • If I'm going to be away from home or office for less than 3 hours, I won't take my phone with me.
  • If the place I'm going has a reliable Wi-Fi hotspot, I won't take my phone with me, regarless of time or distance (I'll take my laptop instead).
Notes: I mention "office" because, like my house, it's one of the places where I'm well-known to hang around often. It's no secret to anyone, so there's little gain in obfuscating it. Also, no. 3 is especially useful during a trip far away since there my phone becomes less useful than a laptop because it cannot make calls anymore.

I don't know if it'll make much of a difference in the long run, but right now, any measure that helps make me used to using my phone less times a day is welcome. Who knows, perhaps next step is to cancel my carrier subscription.

WHAT KIND OF #BULLSHIT IS THIS?????



a guy claims to have made an "app" that charges your phone without a charger or battery pack... and apparently all of this is done purely in software

apparently the app his company developed magically stores extra charge in your phone when you charge your phone and then uses that extra charge stored in your phone to charge your phone.... wtf?

he claims that this app can charge your phone up to 40% when it's first installed, and then that figure slowly increases over time

and this is being launched in Jan

i smell serious bullshit with this >:(

I'm not kidding about anything. i saw it in the local news report at around 6. Here is the link, it starts at around 10 minutes: https://youtu.be/_jHAYrMMPEo?t=10m7s
