#Newpipe 0.14.2 can't play YouTube videos anymore. Downgrading to 0.14.1 seems to work for the moment. (Need to uninstall the latest version first.)

The problem is fixed upstream in version 0.15 which will be on fdroid in 1-2 days.

This is a public service announcement: by saying "IT is crap because users still buy it" you are effectively blaming the victim.

There is a huge information and resources asymmetry between large companies creating software and hardware, and regular person who just wants their Internet-connected device to, you know, not do harm. Companies effectively made a business model out of that asymmetry.

We need education and regulation to make IT not crap.

At the end of last year I received my Librem 5 devkit from @Purism, this week I'll play with it and toot about it. For the moment, here are photos of the devkit and what it came with, sizes are in centimeters and impressise because of perspective.

The four eras of digital computing:

① Mainframe (centralised)

② Personal Computing (PC 1.0; decentralised)

③ Web/Cloud (Mainframe 2.0; centralised)

④ Peer Computing (PC 2.0; decentralised)

The PC 2.0 era is what some of us are working to usher in.

Why is youtube *so bad*

Imagine taking probably the biggest single repository of global culture of our time and managing to shape it into a fundamentally annoying object through profit seeking

#blockchain #bullshit

Still hearing the time-honed bullshit that “nobody cares about their privacy” at #NordicPrivacyArea. Bullshit. People are lied to on a daily basis with billion-dollar budgets.

Research of almost 1m Android apps reveals how data from smartphones are harvested and shared, with nearly 90 per cent of apps set up to transfer information back to Google. Best get all your apps from @fdroidorg - guaranteed no data sharing with Google! 😀
