"So the upshot of this is that, if police can capture your phone in the AFU state (yours is almost certainly in that state for 99% of its existence) *and* they have a software exploit that allows them to bypass the OS security measures, they can get most of the files. 12/"

Biggest transition hurdle from Telegram to Signal, she likes the cute stickers 😂

(Yes, telegrams server side is not kosher)

Really love the idea of Xayn app. Now if there was on OSS alternative 🤔

You can probably get away with using an iPhone in terms of privacy.

That is if you avoid using iCloud (tied to real personas), using VPNs, and being dilligent about using WIFI/BT/NFC.

Also avoiding Google in general, and keeping your phone highly focused. Double benefit is that you adopt a minimalist lifestyle where you aren't distracted by dopamine farms.

Before I switched to /e/ I used my iPhone for 3 things: Signal, Wallet, and Uber+Eats.

(Yes, Uber uses Google Maps, consider finding a different service)

No Mail, No Safari, no SMS.

I may go back when they fix up that "vulnerable in AFU state" bug/feature.

Friends who dont use E2EE messengers are not good friends

No, whatsapp does not count

Yesterday I switched from using gmail as my primary emails for accounts.

Also enabled 2FA OTP (bc SMS 2FA is crap) whenever possible.

Feels good to slowly detach from google. I just realized just how much data was leakwd thru emails alone.

For.example my trading app always report filled orders by email. Amazon purchases, money transfers, etc.

My cloud set up

- Self hosted nextcloud
- On /e/os and Linux
- Sync normal photos
- Pgp encrypt lewds/personal pics before syncing to nextcloud
- I have a pgp encrypted cheatsheet of my common passwords, sourced from my home workstation

Seems like most of the cool innovative stuff in tech is in AI/ML. Everything else is just to improve the user experience of the ui.

The user experience is the most important metric for end users.

Its a pain to install Flutter without google infra 😓​

I've deGoogled, and removed Apple services from my life and yet I get gifted an Apple Watch.

There may be some uses though. For one, its pretty af. And it can serve as a decent fitness tool to measure heart rate, movement etc.

The cons, you need an Apple device to set it up. So I've had to boot up my old iPhones to set it up.

I did so without an associated iCloud (at least not tied to my real persona).

Now I use it exclusively to measure to my heart rate during walks and before sleeping. Always on airplane mode!

Im interested to hear what you gifts you received this holiday

We need a good Google Cloud Run alternative!

Scenario:

You're on a public computer and you need to bookmark a link(s).

Solution:
Make a secret webpage that let's you drop links which forwards to your telegram account.

Over engineering or is it simple?

Alternative:
Pastebin unlisted, but then you'd have to remembee the pastebin URL.

Had my first cup of rice in a month. Blood sugar spike :owobread:

Leading up to the holidays, I do 36 hour fasts (alternate day fast) and do low carb high fat to use up some stored fat in my body.

The Holiday feast becomes the cheat day, you can indulge in discipline.

Carbs are permitted BUT you must avoid sugar!!

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

Android doesn't have a decent app like iOS Reminders. There's Google tasks but ew who uses Google
