Is this my best option for removing the Google/Apple yoke of servitude? I want to piss off all my proprietary fag coworkers who think applife is the future of computing.

This isn't even what the thread is about and you started autistically screeching about an article I didn't even post. Good night.


Second hand or refurbished Samsung flagship model like S5 or S7 installed with LineageOS and properly degoogled is the answer you are looking for.

The online guides are easy and Samsung also provides Odin tool for loading the recovery which is only for windows, but an alternative to heimdall.


i got a pinephone because of the open source bootrom


Seconding. The way to prevent apps from violating your privacy is to refrain from installing garbage on your phone. It's definitely worth to have a non-gimped OS that makes the device a tiny computer, rather than an appliance with more computing power than it can use.


>>6303 (me, after board transplant)
This being said, I do understand people being mad at Purism for their misleading marketing. They're making an expensive toy for nerds who want a combination phone and single-board computer, while marketing it as a privacy-oriented phone for normies. This isn't going to end well.

>US national security agencies issued a joint statement Wednesday acknowledging a "significant and ongoing hacking campaign" that's affecting the federal government. It's still unclear how many agencies are affected or what information hackers might have stolen so far, but by all accounts the malware is extremely powerful. According to analysis by Microsoft and security firm FireEye, both of which were also infected with the malware, it gives hackers broad reach into impacted systems.
>On Thursday, Politico reported that systems at the Department of Energy and the National Nuclear Security Administration were also affected. Also on Thursday, Microsoft said it had identified more than 40 customers that were targeted in the hack. More information is likely to emerge about the hack and its aftermath.

One of the worst parts about mass surveillance is that the people doing it are embarrassingly bad at securing the data they're hoarding.

I honestly don't know if I believe it.


The only part that's probably not real is that this was done by le russians.


well, there is a good chance that it was. They have a pretty extensive cyber warfare setup.


Prove it. Until then, consider who stands to gain by producing an intangible enemy. Also see >>6226


Sure thing Ivan

I always like hardware manufacturing over software.

Whenever I've visited mills or shops, even once a real industrial smelter and forge, the machines and ambience were amazing. Some of this tech runs well even though it's over 100 years old.

Recently I visited an old 19th century factory that had been converted into a fabricator centre with 3D printing and CNC milling




You can't 3d print steel you need to mold or shape it into useable machinery dipshit!!


3D print metal microparticles and then put it in a kiln.
nothin personnel kiddo


Apparently there's an Australian one that does it by blasting the stuff out so fast it welds on contact.


source ?
how do they deal with oxide layers ?

Oh God oh fuck hopping phone images is even better than hopping distros, its like distro hopping but with an actually important device

How the fuck do I clean myself from google services? It seems insurmountable, I installed clean lineage with nanodroid so I could spoof the playstore to get some non fdroid apps but I can't get off of gmail and my proper youtube account, it seems insurmountable setting everything back up on non google shit

Slowly deglowing myself,google is almost removed,fb messenger is a bit of a sticking point with my tech illiterate friends though


why does the samsung choccy font feel and look so comfy


Anyone here using a PinePhone or Librem? I'm waiting for mine, but alas, Purism has supposedly finished the production batch of Librem5, but didn't get around to ship mine yet.


>I can't get off of gmail and my proper youtube account
If you truly can't delete that shit then sign in via your browser instead of using their apps.

I don't want mandatory wifi/bluetooth on my motherboard.

Such as?


isnt that shit pretty easy to disable? I dont think niggas are gonna pull up to your house and hack your bluetooth.

I'd switch to ITX if actually small cases weren't so expensive.

Seven hundred million lines of code written over a period of thirteen years. That's how large the CIA's Marble framework was at the time of its 2017 Wikileaks "Vault7" exposure. At Bill Binney's estimate of $50 per line, that's a $35 billion program.

Ever since learning this I have been attempting to find programs of a similar size. The Linux kernel is currently roughly 27.8 million LOC. Windows Vista was 50 million LOC. Mac OS X v10.4 was 85 million LOC. Supposedly some "high-end" proprietary car software is at the 100 million LOC range. And according to many sources, the entirety of Google internet services is 2 billion lines of codes–but I don't think that really counts because it's hardly a discrete piece of software.

So is the Marble framework one of the largest pieces of software ever created? Is there nothing else that compares?


is LoC really sound metric to use for measuring size of a project? Language like C can really blow up when you attempt to replicate object oriented programming concepts (systemd code base is verbose not bloat IMO). I don't know anything about proprietary car software but if they are one of those real-time control things that needs to be written in assembly or very low level constructs, they will also blow up in terms of LoC.

if there is a way to measure information density of a program by complexity of feature and then combine it with number of features, that will be really cool application of information theory.


well OK then I'm just counting number of instructions of binary but there could be a way to measure this in more abstract ways through flow analysis or something

I know people like this. talking to them is pain


Any type of "AI will fix it" talk makes me roll my eyes, really

What will really happen:


As someone who got into a job that had machine learning knowledge as a requirement, this is completely true. They had a database of all their phone calls and wanted me to improve an algorithm that tried to determine the mood of the person they called to get to sell them useless trash.

Are we about to witness the next escalation in clampdowns on speech across the internet? The incoming presidential administration in the United States has included among its Department of Defense transition team Alyssa Starzak. Starzak, who previously held positions as General Counsel of the U.S. Army, Deputy General Counsel at the Department of Defense, counsel to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and assistant general counsel at the Central Intelligence Agency, has for the past few years now been Head of Policy at Cloudflare. During her time at Cloudflare, we have already witnessed examples of politically-motived business decisions about who gets to be protected by DDoS protection services and who doesn't, including the shutting down of sites like 8ch and Daily Stormer. But it seems DDoS services have become just another aspect of Silicon Valley's merger with the US national security state.

Sources, since no news sites really seem to have picked up on this yet:

Would that not be noticeable and traceable ?


No, you can pay people anonymously to DDOS for you, and they'll do it via infected computers and hosting providers.
The only noticeable thing is your suggestion that "that wouldn't happen", and >>5961's memoryloss for any website pre-cloudflare.


Yes, bunkerchan itself was forced onto cloudfare due to a ddos less than a year ago


Are ddos protection services really efficient enough to last ? Would it not be easier to use a re-host protocol, if you connect to a server you have to rehost data of that server, for a while. It would make ddos near impossible.


So decentralized DDoS prevention doesn't exist huh

Post every single idea you have, no matter how stupid or insignificant, for combining or using current technology to get closer to revolution or a socialist society.

Just post at least one idea.

use linkedin to unionize the pmcs


Will the companies try to stop these? Shouldn't the left not work on those corporate platforms?

The cops exist.


A wiki of sorts with profiles on politicians, organizations, and individual content creators. Each profile contains a series of sourced lists of: promises made, and kept/broken; declarative statements made; "true or false"/factual claims made; sources of funding (available in charts); directly associated individuals/organizations; and direct consequences of various activities.
So a profile could look something like these:

>Name: Dave Rubin

>Funded by Koch Brothers [1 - $UNKNOWN]
>Claims to be a classical liberal [2]

>Name: Donald Trump

>Promised to build a wall on the border of the United States and Mexico [1] [2 - BROKEN]
>Associated with Steve Bannon [3]


You are only describing EDI

Here is my idea OP. Create an open standards body for federated economic planning. Open material recording format. Open ERP. Open demand forcasting. Open bookkeeping. Etc.


Cybersyn was botnet shit and Allende is an overrated succdem.

I've got a bunch of junk taking up space that I've got just in case, but so far it's been useless to me.

Yes. Do you have any old network devices, anything that plugs into network via wifi or network cable, anything from phones to printers to heating mangment systems, ANYTHING?


To clarify any of these devices can be used to find exploits to then hack any other similar device on the internet. Anything that connects to a network that is not your PC or Console.
