general rant about purism phone and android


I think what people don't mention about Purism, that they are a business. And sadly a bad one. They are going down the route of Apple. They want freedom for everyone, but it has a price.

Purism stuff is extremely pricey for me. As much as I want a handheld device that's based on free software. I can't afford it. And even if I could, it's really-really don't give back to me that much, that I can justify the price.

How about different tier devices? I just want to have a phone that I can call people with, listen to podcast, read the news in a non-flashy way (no flipboard kind of bullshit).

Web apps have long played second-fiddle to native ones. While mobile apps benefit from full access to device APIs, snappy performance and support for features such as offline content and push notifications, the stateless and browser sandboxed nature of the web has frequently relegated web-based apps to second choice.

However, in recent years we’ve seen the tide start to turn, particularly with the growth in popularity of client-side rendering and the increased OS-level support for native only features such as background fetching. This new breed of website is frequently termed a ‘PWA’ (progressive web app), but what does that actually mean?

kongo civil war around resources - 5 million dead for mobile phones

wow.

i am glad there are such brave reporters out there.

Full Movie 🙂




many lost their lives in Afghanistan… Pakistan and other places of this horrible world.

just to bring the rest of the “civilized” world the terrible truth.

this needs to change.

sustainability is a must.


in all sectors of our lives.

even if it means – no Mercedes Benz no more. (not the way they are today, the concept is 100 years old! (coal-steam-engine, oil-engine, (we are here) gas-engine, hydrogen-engine (this is where should have been 30 years ago! but the corrupt-money-system prevents it.) )
