You get annoyed by having to enter your handle each time you want to follow/interact with someone on a "foreign" page?

I got that too, but I've made a little add-on to solve this "problem". 😃

It automatically "redirects" you to your own instance.

The is not on -Droid? 🤔👀

Let's change that!

At some point, it was not possible to use without Google Play Services, but thanks to @microg it is now possible to use it without these, so there is (IMHO) no argument against publishing it on F-Droid anymore!

Bitte "upvote" den Issue github.com/corona-warn-app/cwa auf GitHub, wenn du auch willst, dass die deutsche -App auf F-Droid erscheinen soll.
Das zeigt, dass es eine Nutzerbasis gibt, die dieses Feature benötigt.

Lasst uns das ändern!

Dank @microg ist es jetzt mgl. die App ohne „Google Play”-Dienste zu benutzen. Es gibt daher (IMHO) kein Argument mehr gegen eine Veröffentlichung auf F-Droid!

Und könnten mehr Vertrauen aufbauen und eine unabhängige, automatische Verifizierung der durch Dritte ermöglichen!

Apple Has No Tolerance For Webcam Covers

"When we looked into how to solve the problem of webcam security, we opted for a simple but powerful approach in the form of hardware kill switches. With hardware kill switches, you can completely remove power from the webcam and microphone just by flipping a switch."

Someone knows (affordable) headsets with a proper microphone (audio input) and (– and this seems to be rare even in expensive ones) the possibility of audio input via & AUX (auxiliary jack)?

Most headsets then only support audio input if used via Bluetooth. And AUX (or USB) only for audio output.
Why is this so hard? Should not this be technically "easy"?

And USB-C (at least for charging) and Bluetooth 5.0 of course.

@sir Hmm okay, you can copy it. But for having access to the mailinglist archieve, you still need server access or scrape mailmen or so?
I doubt anyone does that…

Also, that's just a matter of having backups – nevermind of whether it's a mailserver or GitLab instance.

google, privacy, e-mail, from :birdsite: 

Google started editing people's e-mails in GSuite, replacing links with a link through google.com:
mobile.twitter.com/sneakdotber
twitter.com/tblodt/status/1317

This means that Google will track a click on a link *in e-mail* even if you're using an external client.

I am *guessing* this is under the pretext of phishing protection, but it actually *creates* additional phishing risk for text-only clients, since now all links are google.com links.
