Thread for questions that don't deserve their own thread.
I wanna buy some headphones to go outside i don't want to spend more than 100€ on them. I want them to be mostly durable and secondly to have good sound quality, also i don't want to look like a jackass while wearing them, any suggestions?

Hello, new to Linux and I would like to know if there is a PDF reader with the following characteristics:

1 - Has a "Fit content" option for zooming
2 - Remembers the last page I visited

Even if not the second option, the first is essential to me, my speed in reading PDFs has decreased a lot since I have to manually scroll down to read the content in each page instead of just using the keyboard arrows.

Pathfinder RAT is a web-based surveillance monitor and app binder malware program developed by Mnemonic Group. Pathfinder is one of the most effective and well engineered Remote Administration Tool (RAT) program. Well, I have this information since I opted for a similar program for my boy. Look, I have recently returned from vacation & I had him checked out already and i get it! He is a total package, the pandemic few years back helped me with closure in my affair, as we had to adopt new living methods…argh never mind, a mystery parcel I found on deep uni vi sion now down…I’d recommend with such awesome Hack Oracle Application Server, that can recover password to email accounts, Facebook Hack, Phone Hacks, want to monitor your partner.

Tech nerds will not comprise the entirety of the revolution. We know this. It's going to include a lot of normies, who can't exactly communicate and coordinate everything through text messaging. As we also know, we live in a world of mass surveillance. We have to give normies options for communicating that can protect themselves from the corporate surveillance state. This thread is for evaluating those options. I am currently looking at phone conferencing options and can't make up my mind on these:
-some Matrix protocol tool
-some XMPP protocol tool
-Jitsi
-Jami

What I really want is something supporting phone call-ins, for stupid old people who cannot into computers. Phone OS support may also be important. Some options are more suited to these things than others. Maybe even better ones than I've listed. Discuss, please.

You could ensure that you talk to meat-people by making everybody buy a cheap cryptographic signature dongle that generates a key when people link their dongles in meat-space.

That way you get proof of meat based on a chain of meat-space link-ups. If you link your dongle you are vouching for that other person not being a bot. If your dongle vouches for too many bots, your dongle won't be trusted anymore and you'll no longer be able to vouch for the non-bot-status of others.

Bot makers can't really fake a realistic meat-space activity.

Audio and video communication can also be faked, it's a lot harder to make it convincing, but there are really realistic and natural sounding speech synthesizers already. Convincing real-time video is eventually also possible. Bio-metrics won't save you.

If bots get advanced enough to grasp complex concepts, it might be interesting to have a Marx-bot.

I remember when Freenet had a system like that. It's not a bad idea, and it can also be used to encrypt traffic. Nothing can break analog.

I've had a question for a while that I've wanted to ask leftists and I figure this is as good a place as any. I can think of only one thing the right and left could ultimately come together on, and that's when it comes to suppressed technologies or suppressed science.

I'm talking about things like free energy, cancer cures, anti gravity tech. Because, if this stuff were available to humanity you'd be able to have the Utopia you want without having to tax the rest of us to death in order to fund your socialist pipe dreams. Plus, don't you guys hate fat capitalists lining their pockets by fleecing everyone and profiting off of human misery (like the cancer industry does)?

Could we not agree that the people behind this sort of suppression need to die? I'd happily eat the rich if it's those fuckers. I'd happily set them off into the wilderness and give them a head start before hunting them down as trophies.

I guess the issue is that the existence of suppressed technology is speculative. There's really no clarity on if it exists or if its a bullshit rumor. In principle, I agree though. People who supress technology for profit should be fed to lions in a stadium.

I wouldn't call it "suppressed" i would call it neglected technologies, capitalists simply do not fund technology development unless they see a way to profit from it. And we definitely are missing out on some fancy tech because capitalists did not see a business-case for it.

>I'm talking about things like free energy, cancer cures, anti gravity tech.


If you define free-energy as some kind of technology that can reverse entropy (Clark tech named after science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke) I think that's extremely unlikely that somebody can do this, and it might not be possible at all.

But if you define free energy as, energy that is too cheap-to-meter, yes you are right about that. If we had, for the last 50 years, spend half of the worlds military budgets on fusion power, we would now be able to produce so much energy that electricity for households would basically be free of cost.

As far as cancer cures go, i think you have to broaden you view. There is a open conspiracy to not develop one-off cures that fix an illness for good, and instead focus on perpetual treatment, to get captive customers and "recurring revenue".

I'm fine with a discussion on that so long as it includes something actionable that the left and right could come together on in the furtherance of such a future. Clark Tech, post-scarcity, these would make many of the gripes between the right and left irrelevant.

A little of Column A, a little of Column B.

As for free energy, I don't rule out the reversal of entropy, but free energy can also mean energy that is so cheap that it's practically free.

>As far as cancer cures go, i think you have to broaden you view.


Cancer is just one of the more blatant examples of suppressed science. Back when I used to binge on walls of text, one of my favorite haunts was https://ahealedplanet.net/ which goes into a lot of detail about this, and lots of other things.

You're forgetting that governments control immense amounts of money and have zero interest in "profit". Same with central banks and their cronies on wallstreet, the people who actually print all the paper money we use don't need to worry about what's "profitable".

>>11213
>A little of Column A, a little of Column B.
Governments can prevent their citizens from acquiring technology but not each other. USA lost their atomic weapons monopoly after like a year. The idea of "Suppressed Technologies" existing in a globalized multi-polar world is unconvincing.

Apply occam's razor:
[_] all these psychopaths at the top of the world's government, military and financial institutions are all in perfect cooperation and none of them have ever been tempted to exploit the super advanced technology for their own benefit
[_] the super advanced technology simply doesn't exist

There is a difference between what we know to be true, and what we can show to be true in the fairy tale world of the legal system. This is why this qualifies as news, because the issue has now moved into the latter group, so they can no longer lie about it in subsequent related trials.

Similarly, we knew the state suppresses inconvenient stories from social media, but now we can also show it to be true using the government's own documents. >>11193

Apple being cut from exactly the same cloth as Google:

https://gizmodo.com/apple-iphone-analytics-tracking-even-when-off-app-store-1849757558
> Apple Is Tracking You Even When Its Own Privacy Settings Say It’s Not, New Research Says
> An independent test suggests Apple collects data about you and your phone when its own settings promise to “disable the sharing of Device Analytics altogether.”
> November 8, 2022

> For all of Apple’s talk about how private your iPhone is, the company vacuums up a lot of data about you. iPhones do have a privacy setting that is supposed to turn off that tracking. According to a new report by independent researchers, though, Apple collects extremely detailed information on you with its own apps even when you turn off tracking, an apparent direct contradiction of Apple’s own description of how the privacy protection works.


> The iPhone Analytics setting makes an explicit promise. Turn it off, and Apple says that it will “disable the sharing of Device Analytics altogether.” However, Tommy Mysk and Talal Haj Bakry, two app developers and security researchers at the software company Mysk, took a look at the data collected by a number of Apple iPhone apps—the App Store, Apple Music, Apple TV, Books, and Stocks. They found the analytics control and other privacy settings had no obvious effect on Apple’s data collection—the tracking remained the same whether iPhone Analytics was switched on or off.
