Apple’s walled garden paradox: "You’re going to keep out a lot of the riffraff by making it harder to break iPhones. But the 1% of top hackers are going to find a way in and, once they’re inside, the impenetrable fortress of the iPhone protects them." technologyreview.com/2021/03/0

Instance admin just lost their job, might need help 

Mstdn.social is one of the largest and nicest instances on the Fediverse, run by an enthusiastic admin called @stux

Unfortunately Stux has today found out that they are fired from their day job 😞

However, by happy coincidence, Stux had just set up a hosting company. If you need web hosting, domain names etc please consider using Stuxhost so that Stux can continue working:

Does anybody know of a good #PeerTube app for #iOS? #NewPipe gets lots of love on the Android side, but I've heard nothing about iOS. Bonus points if it's #accessible.

@spoon @thenewoil I don’t believe in making mountains out of molehills. Like I said, literally every podcast/video/whatever is about making privacy-conscious decisions. If these platforms weren’t used we would be perpetuating a privacy echo-chamber rather than fostering privacy education.

I’ll ask Henry if he wants to add a warning to the site or something 🤷‍♂️

@spoon @thenewoil it’s a false equivalence. Gab and Parler are terrible, and their users equally so. YouTube and Google are terrible, but their users are merely uninformed about data privacy issues — which is exactly the target demographic here.

Literally every aspect of Techlore is about privacy education and leading people towards making informed decisions about the websites they use online. I’m not sure how much more “convincing” we could be.

Wild. Just when I was starting to think my state would never get its act together and it'd never happen 😆

@spoon the alt-right is not our target demographic, so it hasn’t been considered.

@Mayana Ha ha. It’s a linguistics phenomenon of certain comparative sentences where they sound like they make sense, but if you actually think about what they are saying it’s just nonsense: en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compar

@Mayana similarly, I’ve recently been reading about grammatical oddities, like “more people have been to Russia than I have”, or “colorless green ideas sleep furiously.” The English language is a strange one, for sure 😆

@amolith I’m unsure why I call it a “flash drive”, and I’m also unsure why hearing the words “thumb drive” makes me irrationally annoyed, but that’s what happens 🙃

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, Windows Subsystem for Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, WSL.

Seriously James, fuck off. You're by far the worst 'friend' that I've had in my life. We're going to keep building GrapheneOS regardless of what you do. No amount of your bullshit will stop us. Cut your losses while you can. Stop threatening students working on open source.

when Amazon steals $62 million from its employees it's "misrepresenting drivers' tips", when Amazon employees steal $130,000 of products from Amazon it's a "theft ring"
