Purism making progress on Librem5 SmartPhone

more latest news on: https://puri.sm/news/




Progress has been quick and steady, and because we only use components that respect both our ethical values and your personal privacy and freedoms, you can imagine the layers of complexity that go into delivering such a revolutionary mobile phone – from new hardware to a new kernel, from a new operating system to new applications, all of it culminating into the Librem 5 phone.

We want you to have the best possible solutions when it comes both to hardware, and to user experience.
Being able to show that what we’re doing corresponds to our exact intentions is very important, for it will allow you to see this progress for yourself–and we do think the video below, running on the Librem 5 dev kit hardware we shipped in December, speaks volumes.

The Librem 5 devkit running PureOS

„What you just saw in the video is the prototype of the Librem 5 hardware, and it has nearly identical specs to the ones we are putting into production later this year.

And, as you can see, it is running our own PureOS mobile operating system – we’re proud to show off the fact that the Librem 5 is not built on Android, nor iOS.

All the basic functionality is still in pre-release state, and more progress is constantly happening around-the-clock, which means even more apps are making it into the PureOS Store regularly.

Q3 2019 – shipping the Librem 5


But all this leads us to the aforementioned (one quarter) shipping adjustment: the previous Q2 estimate is now confirmed for Q3 product shipping:

This accounts for the time it took us to properly benchmark test the newest CPU choices from NXP for the Librem 5, and the question of whether or not to choose the i.MX 8M Quad or the i.MX 8M Mini, mean we have adjusted our delivery plans slightly.

As we previously announced, the i.MX 8M Quad CPU had known errata issues in the silicon itself, and this was the root cause for the delay, detour and need for research about potential alternatives.

On one hand, the i.MX 8M Quad silicon issues meant not only that the temperature of the battery was way too high, but also that it could discharge too quickly. On the other hand, the i.MX 8M Mini is made in an updated silicon process (14nm instead of 28nm) and has reduced features, resulting in a lower power consumption–but it’s new, and there could be unknown issues and risks. So a lot of research was made, and our development team started evaluating the i.MXM8 Mini to see if it could be used within our requirements–free software only, no binary blobs, mainline based software stacks.

And then the month of February began, and something else unexpectedly happened: NXP released a new software stack for our first CPU choice, the i.MX 8M–and all of the power consumption and heating issues suddenly disappeared!

CPU and Specs


So here we are, on track again after a little delay–quite a useful delay, because now we know. We know a lot more about the i.MX 8M Quad CPU we chose, and a little bit more about a possible alternative. We have chosen the i.MX 8M Quad CPU because the power consumption issues can be dealt with in software… and ultimately that means we don’t have to change the hardware to solve this issue. Full fabrication will begin for the Librem 5 with the specifications we described before:

As you have come to know, Purism will always keep you posted – about the impressive progress we are making, about any issues, major or minor, that come along. And ultimately, this CPU choice has many opportunities – ones that will change the future of computing for the better, for this decision does come with certain advantages in the long term. The i.MX8M Quad is the most powerful CPU that has both a good operating temperature and a good battery life. Having chosen the best possible CPU will provide us, and you, with an overall better hardware experience, with better capabilities and a shorter integration path–meaning, the integration with the software platform.

Rapid Development Continues


Software development continues to move forward quickly. Amazingly quickly. In the past few months, we’ve seen astonishing software progress, and we are now able to take advantage of it. Finally, the extra time for Librem 5 hardware fabrication will benefit software advancements that continue without slowdown, such as quality testing, providing a greater number of default apps, and community advancements made on our Librem 5 dev kit.

Excitement Increases


We recognize the importance of the Librem 5 phone and all the interest you have around it, you can rest assured. Based on our historic delivery on our promises, we feel more comfortable in advancing towards the delivery of the Librem 5 phone in the third quarter of 2019. We are also immensely grateful for all the support we’ve been receiving, both on our forums and on social media, and so proud of the progress our team is making; grateful to our community for supporting our efforts as we work diligently to get the Librem 5—and all its societal benefits—into people’s hands. We think that both our team and the community deserve the very best.

What Your Phone is Telling Wall Street


https://yro.slashdot.org/story/18/11/11/229245/what-your-phone-is-telling-wall-street
Thasos gets data from about 1,000 apps, many of which need to know a phone's location to be effective, like those providing weather forecasts, driving directions or the whereabouts of the nearest ATM. Smartphone users, wittingly or not, share their location when they use such apps. Before Thasos gets the data, suppliers scrub it of personally identifiable information, Mr. Skibiski said. It is just time-stamped strings of longitude and latitude. But with more than 100 million phones providing such coordinates, Thasos says it can paint detailed pictures of the ebb and flow of people, and thus their money.

Lors d'une opération de crowdfunding, Fairphone a réussi à récolter 2.500.000€ pour développer ses activités. Il semble que de plus en plus de monde soit sensibilisé par nos problèmes de société. 😊

Voici ce qui est maintenant au programme:
* Développement de nouveaux produits.
* Augmenter les ventes dans les pays européens où ils sont implantés.
* Recherche et le développement pour introduire plus de matériaux équitables dans la chaîne d'approvisionnement des téléphones, comme le cobalt, qui est un matériau clé pour la révolution énergétique (parce que c'est dans les batteries !).
* Augmenter les ventes sur les marchés inexploités (Scandinavie, Europe du Sud).
* Poursuivre le développement du Fairphone en tant que service, afin que les utilisateurs puissent bénéficier de tous les avantages du Fairphone sans en être propriétaire.

I work in mobile app development and the technology out there to spy on you is pretty insane. There is a whole industry for snooping and reselling data. Here are some examples.

There are several SDKs (software development kits) that offer fingerprinting identity services. Meaning, when someone opens your app, it checks their device ID, IP address, GPS location, email address, etc. and makes a match to an identity. You then use this SDK to track their behavior in your app, such as purchases, interests, demographics, preferences, etc. This data is stored along with all the other apps that use the SDK. Now as an upsell, I can buy all of your behavior data from every other app that uses the same service. From the moment you install the app I know everything about you.

There are SDKs that don’t even offer a service, they just straight up pay the app maker to let their agent sit and collect data and send it up to their servers. Mostly location data.

My favorite is there’s an SDK that actually records the screen while you use the app, and the video gets sent up to the server for the app maker to see how you use their app in real time. It also tracks all of your views, swipes, and button presses tied to the video for analytics.

Basically, you should assume that every moment you are using an internet connected device, you are being observed, scrutinized, and analyzed so that someone can sell you more shit.

They are really good at this, and getting better every year. You think Facebook is listening to your microphone to serve you ads at the moment you are discussing a product? They don’t need to. They know you that well.

Edit: A lot of people are asking for specific examples of this monitoring tech. There are a ton of small players. So an example of location tracking is Tamoco. An example of behavior tracking is Branch.io (they don't advertise the data mining, but it's a back-end deal). And session monitoring is AppSee or HotJar. There are many more that I haven't heard of.

There are a ton of data resellers out there. They're typically small startups who buy and sell data, and they compete on having the most comprehensive and clean data sets. We get approached by a data reseller maybe once a month, either trying to buy our data or sell us data.

Edit: A lot of people are flippant about this idea because you "don't click on ads" or you "don't buy anything". There are people who aren't interested in just selling you products. How about voting for a particular political candidate, or for/against a ballot measure? How about selling you a particular world view? Propaganda is just like advertising, they're just selling you an idea instead of a product.

Doctors say: Children struggle to hold pencils due to too much tablet and smartphone usage


Strange generation... Using tablets and phones all the time, but having difficulties using a pen or pencil. Actually no wonder considering adult's phone addiction ( https://diasp.org/posts/8850004 ). Maybe pens and pencils are old fashioned anyway. Children might have to learn only touch screen usage in the future.

ARD fördert Datenkraken



Statt eine Web-Applikation zu entwickeln, die mit jedem Web-Browser auf jedem Betriebssystem liefe, steckt die ARD viel Geld in die Entwicklung von Smartphone-Apps. So werden Nutzer von alternativen Betriebssystemen (Linux, Windows, Mac, etc.) ausgegrenzt. Freie Software hat das Nachsehen. Selbst die Smartphone-Nutzer können sich die App nur runterladen, wenn sie einen Account beim jeweiligen Hersteller haben. Wie bekloppt ist das denn? Wer sich daran stört, kann übrigens eine Email an audiothek@ard.de schreiben. Vielleicht kommt die ARD dann ja darauf, daß eine Web-App auch ohne Smartphone oder Account bei Datenkraken nutzbar ist.

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!

#HELP !
My mobile phone ZTE Open C under #FirefoxOS seams near his end of life.
I can't imagine to be back to Android/Cyanogen or things like this...

Do you know where it's still possible to buy smartphones under Firefox OS please ?

Reshare would be appreciated :)

#Feedback and seeking your advises



I did it !

Joining D* was the first step of many to win back my #privacy online and stop supporting bad application. Long time this was waiting inside me.
Since it could be useful to others and because I still need some #help to solve some remaining issues, here is a brief "before/after" list :

- #Gmail ~~ #Posteo.de
Most difficult service to replace. This one is for me the best equation including social responsibility, privacy, email extension convenience, user interface not too far behind Gmail
- #Drive #storage ~~ #Owncloud at ocloud.de, free bundle for now
- #Drive #collaboration ~~ #Framapad for text and have to try framacalc to see if powerful enough for sheet
- #Drive #share ~~ #Framadrop for temporary sharing and my owncloud otherwise
- #Agenda ~~ ... my notebook, no IT, just some paper and the #bulletjournal approach
- #Google ~~ #DuckDuckGo
- #Hangout / #Skype ~~ #Framatalk based on #JitsiMeet
- #Chat ~~ no solution :'( someone has one ? #HELP
- #GoogleMap ~~ #Openstreetmap
- #Pocket ~~ #Framabag based on #Wallabag
- #Facebook / #Twitter ~~ #Diaspora*
- #Smartphone ~~ my #Fairphone let you choose and #android with our without #googleapps, I'll just reset it !
- was already using #Firefox (ouf ! at least, one was right ^^)

If you have any suggestion or solution for the chat / instant messaging, feel free :) I really don't know how to get rid of messenger or whatsapp... Using them a lot and removing those will make a severe cut with my friends and family...

A big thanks to #Framasoft and their project "Dégooglisons l'internet"
