How M$ will take posses over the Linux realm...


How M$ will take posses over the Linux realm...

Recently there has been a lot of excitment around WSL2, with Canonical in front line to make Ubuntu a first class citizen on WSL2.

As usual there is a very well orchestred communication around this topic, and the refrain says that everything that get people closer to linux is welcome, but the only two entities that I see getting closer and closer between each other are just M$ and Canonical.

It seems that Canonical eventually have found a way to push M$ to make purchase offer. If Canonical will be able to make the switching between W10 and Ubuntu transparent at this point there isn't any reason for M$ for not acquire Canonical. We already knew that at certain this will happen but the one who want the most this a becoming reality is the BDOL of Ubuntu hisself.

Probably are years that Shuttleworth is dreaming to make the best deal of his life, and with Ubuntu as just as second skin of Windows, acquiring Canonical for M$ would be a terrific win-win situ... Show more...

Android Apps


I don't like Android and using Google Android is simply dumb. It just makes no sense to present one's data on a silver tablet to Google. Ungoogled Android has a big advantage though: It has many apps. Here are some of them, which were mentioned in a video by mobilsicher (if I remember correctly). These are from f-droid.
  • VLC
  • Antennapad
  • RadioDroid
  • Soundrecorder
  • ScreenCam

  • Fennic
  • Tor Browser
  • Orbot
  • Blokada
  • NetGuard
  • SimpleSearch

  • K-9
  • FairEmail
  • DeltaChat
  • JitsiMeet
  • FaceSlim

Messed up Part II


I just posted:
'I have a connection to wq-in-f104.1e100.net and I cannot tell why.'

What I just discovered, quote:

'Google started with the motto "Don't be evil" but I say, "Don't be evil, says the devil".'


Read this:


This is always the same, they are babbling about "keep things simpler" and "proactively improve security"


What a shame. Dirty liars.

This is on superuser:






This way it will get impossible to block Google services by domain name! Or you won't be able to block one service without blocking an other service, which you may want to keep.

Messed up


I have a connection to wq-in-f104.1e100.net and I cannot tell why.

This whole modern computing is truly messed up. Why does it bother me?
Well, 1e100 - does it ring any bells? No?

This means 1*10^100 = googol. This is where google's name comes from.

And no, this not safe browsing, I don't even have a browser open. Let me also say that I avoid every google service or product. Now this unencrypted connection is still there. Brave New World.

DDG Browser


I tested the DDG Browser and that connection to that Microsoft server was there. That's messed up. (Even if they fixed it meanwhile.)

Be aware of the canvas fingerprinting on that blog:

https://www.cyberhero.tv/blog/2020/07/03/duckduckgo-browser-seemingly-sends-domains-a-user-visits-to-ddg-servers/

"40.114.178.124 is the IP that icons.duckduckgo.com resolves to and WHOIS says that it’s managed by Microsoft. If this is Azure, which I would take a bet it is, then that means that for the last year or more, Microsoft could, technically tap into that server’s memory to see who requested which domain and when. So not only do you need to trust DDG, you also need to trust Microsoft that they didn’t do anything bad with the info. Does anyone still remember PRISM? This kind of passive access to user data is exactly what PRISM was about. Although I could be wrong and maybe the actual... Show more...
