braucht hier vielleicht zufällig jemand ein zweit-/wander-/urlaubs-/festival-smartphone?

Funktioniert tadellos, ein paar kleine Schönheitsfehler wie winzige Kratzer und Dellen durch diverse Stürze sind vorhanden, Display jedoch ohne Schaden. Ladestecker + Kabel gibt es natürlich dazu.

Der Akku schwächelt inzwischen ein wenig, ist jedoch austauschbar und für unter €20,- auf Amazon zu bekommen. Wenn man nicht den ganzen Tag darauf spielt kommt man immer noch locker über den Arbeitstag. Das Gerät ließ sich heute nach nunmehr 10 Monaten Lagerung problemlos wieder einschalten.

Fairphone 3 und eine Interview mit dem Fairphone-Gründer

Zudem sei Android One "sehr stark an Google angebunden" und man bevorzuge es hier, "so unabhängig wie möglich" zu bleiben.


Technisch sei das Fairphone 3 seinem Vorgänger nicht nur bei der Leistung überlegen, sondern vor allem auch in Sachen Kamera und Akkulaufzeit.


Man sei stolz auf das bisher Dennoch sei das Fairphone "noch weit davon entfernt", hundertprozentig "fair" zu sein. Die größte Herausforderung sei, dass man beim Aufbau vieler Lieferketten ganz von vorne beginnen müsse.


Die Einführung des neuen Standards für Mobilkommunikation stecke noch in den Kinderschuhen.

Daher habe man sich entschieden, beim Fairphone 3 auf 5G-Support zu verzichten.

Does anyone here have any experiences with Fairphones?
The idea sounds lovely: a modular built repairable phone running vanilla Android with at least 5yrs support and as a fair trade product.

Anyone can order spare parts.
It really is repairable. See this post by @Mikel Diaspora for an independent report (thanks for the pointer, Mikel).

So I just got #shadowban'ed by #yotube on two answers, each of 'em on the respective pinned comment by #theyoungturks about freedom of speech in two different videos.

Here are the comments that still figure in my youtube app on #android phone like posted. Even the response count includes my comment in the counting.

#Freespeech? #Democracy? #FreedomOfInformation?

Google and "freespeech"?
You guys have no idea what that company is standing for at this point and how you yourself, the young turks, are making money of the technics that are used to influence people on a subconcious level.
Youtube pulls 228 million comments in three month with an algorithm by #shadowban.
Need proof?

Oha .. I hate to bring it to you Andrew but you will have to rewrite your book.
YT right now is pulling more than 228 million comments and answers to comments by algorithm in three month with shadowban! That's their own data.
Reasons are uncertain as there is no law to open source those algos by default to protect freedom of speech.
The only reasonable way to stop this is decentralization by default and moderation by the respective nodes and the users.
Zuckerberg for example knows that but he can't say it because share holders will fry him.
The problem we are facing is because of jazzing up user numbers without any reasonable way of filtering. You just can't connected the whole world without creating a big f** mess. We don't do it in real life neither.
Prof Dr. Peter Kruse explains that brillantly, you'll find bit's of him here on YT.
I'm sorry that the content of the following link is in spanisch but I'm investigating that algorithm "reverse engeneering" over a month now on spanisch YT commenting on politics democracy and democratic elections:

I'm #evaluating several #messaging protocols at the moment. I'm looking for the following characteristics for a "perfect" messaging app:so far: ( + = positive, - = negative aspect of the app)
  • #Jami / #Ring Here
    • (+) platform independent #Android version is seamless with #windows and #Linux version
    • (+) supports video chat, phone calls, etc.
    • (-) only works when both parties are online at the same time. Can't retrieve messages at a later time. They are working on this. Since I don't use a data plan on my smart phone, I can only use this if #wifi is enabled.
  • #patchwork (here) ( #scuttlebutt) (windows/Linux) or Manyverse (android)
    • (+) opensource
    • (+) almost completely distributed using the idea of pubs to connect and download messages
    • (+) works even when offline. Messages sync once connection is re-established
    • (-) the android version ( #Manyverse ) cannot send #private messages (yet). If this feature is worked out, Manyverse will be the messenger of choice.
  • #retroshare (here) (windows/linux/android)
    • (+) linux/windows version looks very mature
    • (+) uses #TOR to #encrypt
    • (+) has support for #chat, messaging, #email, etc.
    • (-) Android version - alpha release. I can't get it to even create a user login at this point. I did at one point, but now it's not working.

I work in mobile app development and the technology out there to spy on you is pretty insane. There is a whole industry for snooping and reselling data. Here are some examples.

There are several SDKs (software development kits) that offer fingerprinting identity services. Meaning, when someone opens your app, it checks their device ID, IP address, GPS location, email address, etc. and makes a match to an identity. You then use this SDK to track their behavior in your app, such as purchases, interests, demographics, preferences, etc. This data is stored along with all the other apps that use the SDK. Now as an upsell, I can buy all of your behavior data from every other app that uses the same service. From the moment you install the app I know everything about you.

There are SDKs that don’t even offer a service, they just straight up pay the app maker to let their agent sit and collect data and send it up to their servers. Mostly location data.

My favorite is there’s an SDK that actually records the screen while you use the app, and the video gets sent up to the server for the app maker to see how you use their app in real time. It also tracks all of your views, swipes, and button presses tied to the video for analytics.

Basically, you should assume that every moment you are using an internet connected device, you are being observed, scrutinized, and analyzed so that someone can sell you more shit.

They are really good at this, and getting better every year. You think Facebook is listening to your microphone to serve you ads at the moment you are discussing a product? They don’t need to. They know you that well.

Edit: A lot of people are asking for specific examples of this monitoring tech. There are a ton of small players. So an example of location tracking is Tamoco. An example of behavior tracking is Branch.io (they don't advertise the data mining, but it's a back-end deal). And session monitoring is AppSee or HotJar. There are many more that I haven't heard of.

There are a ton of data resellers out there. They're typically small startups who buy and sell data, and they compete on having the most comprehensive and clean data sets. We get approached by a data reseller maybe once a month, either trying to buy our data or sell us data.

Edit: A lot of people are flippant about this idea because you "don't click on ads" or you "don't buy anything". There are people who aren't interested in just selling you products. How about voting for a particular political candidate, or for/against a ballot measure? How about selling you a particular world view? Propaganda is just like advertising, they're just selling you an idea instead of a product.

mobileCTRL im Fediverse

Ich weiß, im Fediverse dreht sich vieles um Open Source und freie Software.
Wer trotzdem an News über #Android #iOS #Windows #Wearables etc. interessiert ist sollte vielleicht den Kanal von @mobileCTRL auf Mastodon im Auge behalten.

Ich finde es zumindest ziemlich cool, wenn sich solche Technik-Blogs auch mal die Mühe machen und ins (unbekannte) Fediverse vorstoßen. Da kann man sie auch mal lieb willkommen heißen.

Ich bin mit diesem Blog in keiner Weise verbunden. Sie haben nur auf G+ von mir den Tipp mit Mastodon bekommen und schauen sich das jetzt mal an, was ich persönlich gut finde, deshalb auch die Reklame hier ;-)

>hier gehts zu deren Webpräsenz: https://mobilectrl.de
 
Sieht ganz interessant aus, vor allem die Möglichkeit den Player im Background laufen zu lassen gefällt mir.
