Quick rundown:

The public discussion against Stallman started on September 12 with a post on by MIT graduate Selam G. about Stallman's opinions in a private mailing list of MIT's CSAIL. Her post was followed by an article on by Edward Ongweso Jr. and then followed by several other articles and public statements, e.g. by The Daily Beast, GNOME Foundation, Software Freedom Conservancy.

Is there a good text editor for windows not developed by a based boy or tranny? Don't mention vim or other autism soft, i just want a simple text editor, not for coding.

Tech industry sets official standard for 8K TVs

No.72878087 ViewReplyOriginalReport

The tech industry just took another step to nail down the specs for 8K TV. The Consumer Technology Association has unveiled the official display definition for 8K sets, including a logo TV makers can use. Any model needs to output at a minimum 7,680 x 4,320 resolution, support 24, 30 and 60 frames per second, produce 10-bit color, support key HDR functions and use HDCP 2.2-level content protection. It also has to upscale any video to 8K.

Devices can start using the logo on January 1st, 2020.

The definition isn't a great stretch when early 8K TVs already meet the definition. This is, to a degree, a formality. It does set baseline expectations for what 8K TVs can do, though. You shouldn't have to worry that a given screen will fall short on key specs, and you could see more brands keen to tout 8K than they have been in 2019.

>As long as your phone is turned on, even with "location permissions" disabled, the radios in the phone that connect it to all the nice things you like are screaming into the air, reporting your presence to nearby cell towers, which then create records that are kept forever.
>If I were configuring a smartphone today, I'd use @DanielMicay's @GrapheneOS as the base operating system. I'd desolder the microphones and keep the radios (cellular, wifi, and bluetooth) turned off when I didn't need them. I would route traffic through the @torproject network.
>I wouldn't use WiFi at home, because global maps of every wireless access point's unique ID—including yours—are free and constantly updated. I would use ethernet; yes, ethernet on a phone. I would deny network permissions to any app that doesn't need it using an app firewall.
>I would use an ad blocker. I would use a password manager. I would block third-party cookies in the browser.
>I'd disable javascript, tracking, and fingerprinting in the browser, and even then I'd avoid the browser unless I had no choice. Better to browse on a laptop (w/ @QubesOS) which does not have a history of everywhere I've been, since it lacks GPS & Wifi, and has @Whonix built-in.
>I would not (and do not) use email, except as throwaways for registration. Email is a fundamentally insecure protocol that, in 2019, can and should be abandoned for the purposes of any meaningful communication. Email is unsafe. I'd use @Signalapp or @Wire as a safer alternative.
Is he wrong about anything here?

How many times do you update per week? How afraid do you get when you see a new systemD update? How do you make it not fuck your system like it happens to many users?

Anyone else given up hoarding data? I deleted all my hoarding stuff and sold my hard drives at Cex. I feel so much freer. I'm barely keeping up with the current season of anime, let alone television, films, music and games. The idea that I would ever rewatch or replay any of this crap is laughable. So why waste time and money storing shit I will never use?
