goTenna Mesh - a device to inter-connect mobile phones for exchange of text and location messaging off the grid


Download the goTenna app and pair your goTenna Mesh device to your phone via Bluetooth. Share real-time locations and send private or group messages to other goTenna Mesh users at point-to-point ranges typically up to 4 miles.

goTenna Mesh privately and securely hops messages across devices, extending the range. In 1-to-1 messaging, only end-users see messages. "Shout" messages are public broadcasts visible across the local mesh network.

It has great uses like for a group camping or hiking off the grid, or friends on a cruise ship, a community which does not have Internet connectivity, etc.

Pro's are:
1. Consumer focussed, easy to set up and use
2. Mesh networking can extend the range
3. No subscription version has useful functionality at zero ongoing cost
4. Small compact battery powered device
5. Works with any Android or iOS smartphone

Con's are:

DxOMark expands already extensive camera image quality tests with new tests focused on evaluating the latest gadgets’ night modes and ultra-wide-angle lenses


Sure, you could take Apple’s word for it that the new iPhone’s cameras are amazing — or you could let some obsessive pixel-peepers perform some (mostly) objective tests and really get into the nitty-gritty. Pixel peepers in extraordinary DxOMark are here to help, with new tests focused on evaluating the latest gadgets’ night modes and ultra-wide-angle lenses.

Night shots are graded on detail, noise, color reproduction — the kinds of things that tend to be lost in low light. Wide-angle shots are graded on distortion, detail throughout the frame and chromatic aberration — all difficult to correct for.

If a smartphone's camera is a key deciding point for you when choosing a new smartphone then you want to have a look at the scoring and ratings for objective comparisons and comments before deciding.

Popular Ad Blockers AdBlock and uBlocker Deemed 'Fake' - Check The Names Carefully Of Which Extensions You Install


The team behind AdGuard, a real ad-block extension for browsers, reported in a blog post this week that two popular ad-blocking extensions found on the Google Chrome Web Store are, in fact, completely fake, despite being used by millions of users.

The two extensions called AdBlock by AdBlock Inc. and uBlock by Charlie Lee, also mislead users by mimicking names of two real ad-blocking extensions, as well as the names of the developers behind those extensions. Users have reported these extensions as fake, but Google has seemingly yet to take action.

The ones you want to be using are uBlock Origin by Raymond Hill and/or Privacy Badger by EFF Technologists. We need to be careful with 3rd party extensions as they are often a way in through the backdoor of browser security,

Pocket Casts is making its podcast app free and launching a subscription service at $10pa for desktop sync and own uploads


Existing paid users of the app get the Plus service for free for 3 years (which is decent sweetener) but everyone now gets the basic mobile app for free with discovery, variable speed, silence trim, filters, dark/light theme, playback of individual episodes, and cross-platform sync excluding desktop browser. Both the app and desktop UI have a new fresh look. Pocket Casts Plus includes 10GB of cloud storage for people who want to upload their audio and video content.

I have chiefly been using Pocket Casts paid app for the last few years for their incredibly good sync between mobile and desktop apps. It really works smoothly. I know Player FM (I also pay annually for their subscription service) had introduced a similar syncing with desktop which was a little glitchy back then but may have well all been smoothed out by now. Google Podcasts has also introduced sync to desktop and a really excellent search (includes searching for audio words in epis... Show more...

Exclusive: Job has left some ‘addicted’ to extreme material and pushed others to far right

The task of moderating Facebook continues to leave psychological scars on the company’s employees, months after efforts to improve conditions for the company’s thousands of contractors, the Guardian has learned.

A group of current and former contractors who worked for years at the social network’s Berlin-based moderation centres has reported witnessing colleagues become “addicted” to graphic content and hoarding ever more extreme examples for a personal collection. They also said others were pushed towards the far right by the amount of hate speech and fake news they read every day.
