I'd class android running on a Samsung much more likely to be spyware, given google's usual predilictions. Apple actually charge people enough to make it more worth their while to be reasonably secure, although given the size of them as a target and their predilection over graphical fancy over actual honest tying down holes in code means they more often seem to end up patching after the event nowadays.

I think the most likely possibility is that both Android phones and iPhones are spy bricks. I'm not endorsing Android. Android is shitty and I only got one because I needed it for my job. If the Pyra gets phone software then I might still just buy a headset or something like that to try to make using the Pyra as a phone work since I'd love to not depend on Android anymore.

The iPhone is not secure because Apple has monetary incentive to spy on the user. The iPhone user is basically trusting a company —that cares the most about profit and refuses to be open about what they're doing— to not sell his data for money.
Of course Android is not any better. It's locked down, a lot of it is closed source, and since invading privacy is Google's specialty there's a good chance that Android spies on it's users.

As far i have the Pyra, i think i will make me a good new signature, but until the Powersafe Features isnt optimized, its still no allways on device, so for short Posts, i thing i would use my Iphone sometimes..

Hopefully the third sim card isnt that expensive, maybe something around 5 € more.. so i can also post from cellular network..

Wanted to update my void linux, after it's been awhile, and got "something: broken ... unresolved something". That was fun. Removed what was "broken", updated, re-installed what I obviously wanted, which pulled some of the others back in. Now I'll look up, if I want any of the rest of the removed.
Good thing I didn't have anything urgent do to, that would have involved libx265.so. :)

Dit try out the Pyra Mug this morning whit a „normal coffee“ (2 small Mugs ) , if you drink your coffee black, it’s fits but for me, black is too black, as I drunk the last 35 Years only Cold Milk whit Cacao, and Coffee only on some special events .. ..

Maybe if @EvilDragon needs new mugs , they need to be a bit bigger for the milk ^^

The next coffee for me is a small mug and the rest will be milk, otherwise I need to long to empty it..

What does "Soliciting of minors" mean? I'm playing Prey and one of the "volunteers" has that entry in his criminal record.

Looks like a product of the USA-typical habit of not calling things by their name, when they're bad things. Minors are Minderjaehrige, solicit is bitten/eindringlich bitten (noetigen?)/anbieten - super ambiguous. So I guess the choice would be between:
- offering minors to someone
- offering something to minors
- asking minors for something
And the word not said seems to be sexual or prostitution.

Yes, looks like the yanks don't define soliciting same as we do. In the UK soliciting is usually the offence failed by prostititutes selling their wares, but Americans only consider it soliciting is you're selling violence, not sex. Which makes it weird when it's minors you're soliciting, so it can't be that.

Now you got me really confused. Being a prostitute and not selling your wares is an offence and that's what you call soliciting? Or does failing mean succeeding, when talking about an offense?

When he's being violent, it'd rather be called robbery than theft, if I got those terms right. So maybe rapery?

With the latest wave of trolling, or let's say, impatient orderers, I took the song: DMX - X Gon' Give It To Ya
And I re-made the lyrics. It's hard to sing it (for my vocal chords...) and the result is meh for now until I get the hang of it.
Should I do this version, or a censored one? Am I too negative in the text?

I think the explicit version isn't too explicit for an adult audience at least these days. My only concern is the credit you give form-action, who in reality weren't able to handle the injection points and the finishing of the moulds properly in the end.

@FBnil Nice, I just think, there were more fundamental topics, than what software to ship.? Keyboard, anyone? RAM size?
