didn't this get reported several years ago?


And another social satire becomes reality…


Yeah and recording people's private lives (like Alexa does) is illegal, but it's all processed by a machine so it's okay in the eyes of the law. No one (supposedly) can review the footage like CCTV.
>paint ass
If you're just changing the color it'll have no effect since it's based on some sort of "analprint". If you physically cover it then how the hell will you shit (or you can shit the paint off your butthole as the first poo drops)?
>sit slightly further back
And shit on the toilet seat?
>disable camera
"Ah yes Boss Porkyface I disabled the camera because I'm morally opposed to surveillance. Y-You're not gonna fire me are you?"

Can't wait to have my ANALPRINT analyzed I BET IT'LL SHAKE UP THE ALGORITHMS.(No jakdumps in /alt/ please.)

Google, they really should make all of their services unusable because of ads and malware


IIRC umatrix is unmaintained because Ublock origin can do everything umatrix does anyway


Here is the thing: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Dynamic-filtering:-quick-guide
In ublock origin advanced mode, you can block images, all 3rd-party, inline scripts, 1st-party scripts, 3rd-party scripts and/or 3rd-party iframes on a page. Besides that there are two whitelist options for hostnames, to exempt them from all dynamic rules or from all static rules (premade blocking lists).
Besides Cookies, CSS and Media ublock can effectively block everything umatrix can, but you cannot whitelist individual request types.

OpenAI chief goes to US congress to propose licenses for building AI.
>"I am nervous about it," CEO Sam Altman said about elections and AI, adding rules and guidelines are needed.

"Ethics in AI" is so liberal easily co-opted to promote:
- monopoly capitalism (hinder competitors)
- state power (prevent democratization, prevent ordinary people developing AI)
- imperial power (sanctions to prevent non-compliant nation states developing AI).

>you got a loicense for that large language model?
all this is is OpenAI and similar companies being afraid of competition and seeking regulatory capture


Also fear mongering to promote their ai (product) as this super scary big ebil thing that is gonna give such a big advantage and you need to be buy it.
If you guys like podcasts I recomend "this machine kills", pretty cool lefty materialist program about silicon valley and tech capital. Anyways they cover a lot of this stuff


dumbass boomer politicians and normie techlets are so retarded that they might actually grant this anti-competitive corporate shit.


idk much about tech in general, but what prevents an open source ai? how the hell is anyone going to enforce this when you can run the ai on a box in asia, or on a personal computer.

You guys do realize that the only *truly private* method of communication through electronics are payphones, right?

>inb4 muh burner phones!

Buy them at the store they can catch you on surveillance and see your receipts. Buy it online and you can still get tracked. Only good in certain scenarios.
>internet & computers
No safe network exists. At least none that are civilian accessible.and a whole bunch of other shit too that the feds have up their sleeves (like using RF to see what you're doing). There are so many faults with using computers for privacy, esp as having any privacy whatsoever is impossible now unless you're Amish, that its reached the point that "internet privacy" has become an oxymoron. Even if there were ways to stay private, it would be extremely difficult.
>but muh Fairphone and Faraday Bag!
They can still track you even with a Faraday device.


Also, GrapheneOS is shit.

Delet this


Normies come out on top again, as physical person to person communication beats out techoid gadgetism.


Normies can no longer exist without their smartphones.


True privacy: never communicate with another human being ever again
Being in the same room as someone is a massive privacy leak


The internet is when a computer connects to another computer
Massive privacy oversight right there

We're on a new board, so why not a new desktop thread? Let's keep this board active. Hopefully a fresh thread will draw some activity.

I thought active development was the main appeal of Plasma. Personally i would recommend something more stable like fvwm , cwm, windowmaker, or cde as a desktop.


If they have the activities system kde has I'd consider, otherwise I have no interest


fvwm has virtual desktops, but not the full sandboxing that KDE Activities seems to provide


The closest analogue to activities i know of are cwm groups. In cwm they replace virtual desktops though:
By default windows spawn in the group 1. Windows may be moved to other groups based on the numbers 0-9. Any group besides group 0 can be toggled and there are settings to automatically assign new windows to the last toggled group or a specific group based on their name. Most cwm keybindings are keyboard-focused, so you might need to adjust key/mouse-bindings. It accomodates other desktop ui programs well with group 0 and an option to restrict the area where windows spawn. It requires you to edit a text configuration file, that is fairly self-explanatory.

tl;dr If you have 9 or less KDE activities without virtual desktops or KDE widgets, cwm might be for you.

You might also want a standalone session manager. It sounds like it does exactly what activities do, but i'm unsure having never used one.
The KDE wiki has no indication that activities do sandboxing. An open forum thread from 2019 has a brief discussion on integrating applications sandboxing into Plasma and an r/kde comment section from 2021 recommends bubblewrap or firejail.
I made separate user accounts for my browsers and share files in /tmp.

>The Metaverse, the once-buzzy technology that promised to allow users to hang out awkwardly in a disorientating video-game-like world, has died after being abandoned by the business world. It was three years old.
>The capital-M Metaverse, a descendant of the 1982 movie "Tron" and the 2003 video game "Second Life," was born in 2021 when Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg changed the name of his trillion-dollar company to Meta. After a much-heralded debut, the Metaverse became the obsession of the tech world and a quick hack to win over Wall Street investors. The hype could not save the Metaverse, however, and a lack of coherent vision for the product ultimately led to its decline. Once the tech industry turned to a new, more promising trend — generative AI — the fate of the Metaverse was sealed.
>The Metaverse is now headed to the tech industry's graveyard of failed ideas. But the short life and ignominious death of the Metaverse offers a glaring indictment of the tech industry that birthed it.
Grand promise
>From the moment of its delivery, Zuckerberg claimed that the Metaverse would be the future of the internet. The glitzy, spurious promotional video [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKPNJ8sOU_M] that accompanied Zuckerberg's name-change announcement described a future where we'd be able to interact seamlessly in virtual worlds: Users would "make eye contact" and "feel like you're right in the room together." The Metaverse offered people the chance to engage in an "immersive" experience, he claimed.
>These grandiose promises heaped sky-high expectations on the Metaverse. The media swooned over the newborn concept: The Verge published a nearly 5,000-word-long interview with Zuckerberg [http://theverge.com/22749919/mark-zuckerberg-facebook-meta-company-rebrand] immediately following the announcement — in Post too long.

why does this make my heart hurt?




Is this a metaverse thing?


Yeah but metaverse (the marketing term) isn't primarily about xr stuff, it's about presenting products next to eachother so people that like one product will like the other product. Fortnite and Smash Bros, for example.
Like if Mark wanted to hype people about xr this was too indirect of an approach.

It is a VR frontend for Retro Arch though someone did make a giant functional C64 in VRChat.
Even then online 3D worlds date back to the late 90s that focus was user created worlds with them seeing then as the Metaverse being 90s Internet just with 3D slapped on it that was more palatable then Facebook and Microsoft's idea of the Metaverse.

I have used coreboot before, but I got a laptop with a weird chip layout that is going to be difficult to coreboot. I found a few workarounds, but I am having trouble understanding them. Would anybody here be willing to help?
44 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


Many chromebooks can be corebooted without an external device, by just disabling the write protection depending on the model. Many recent model chromebooks with recent processors can do this since the last 12 months. Thinkpads are more complicated and require an external device like a Pi and a clamp to contact the bios chips.


Chromebooks can also be bought used for a few dollars.


if youre a schizo how do you know a software solution actually works unlike using a hardware programmer


I don't, which is why I asked further back up the thread where to get info on security audits for corebooted chromebooks like this. The value in corebooting a chromebook is in the fact that they can be bought used for a few dollars, imo. Getting coreboot on them is a bonus I guess.

you have 10 seconds to explain why.

6-7 years ago, I could understand, LineageOS was buggy as shit for me and flashing microG was a pain. but now it's easy and smooth as fuck. flash TWRP, sideload custom ROM, install microG through F-droid.

my bank app works, messaging app works, phone boots very fast (way faster than MIUI for example). no google bloat, no xiaomi bloat, just the apps I want and nothing more. even the first modded Gcam apk I downloaded worked.

maps is provided by OpenStreetMaps (maps look better than GoogleMaps' cartoony shit anyway), location is provided by Nominatim, although you can use Mozilla or any of the other ones.

Find the forum for your phone on XDA-developers and have at it!

I don't want a rom-com starring anything or anyone
This is just going to make more unwatchable schlock
Hopefully this next recession wipes out the middle-class retards that would want this
