Google violated US labor laws by spying on workers who were organizing employee protests, then firing two of them, according to a complaint filed by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) today. Several other employees were fired in the wake of the protests, but the NLRB found that only the terminations of Berland and Spiers violated labor laws.

>The union's formation comes after years of rising employee tensions at Google over the company's business and operational decisions, including its work with the defense sector, plans for a censored search engine in China, and the company's handling of sexual misconduct claims, the last of which resulted in a massive employee protest. The union's demands hit on many of those issues.

>"For far too long, thousands of us at Google — and other subsidiaries of Alphabet, Google's parent company — have had our workplace concerns dismissed by executives," the workers wrote in the Times op-ed. "Our bosses have collaborated with repressive governments around the world.

Friendly reminder that flash is gonna be dead in less than a month and alongside it a large chunk of the old internet in the form of flash animations and games,Because the software is old and full of so many security flaws that Adobe just can't be arsed to fix it anymore at this point so they're just ending support altogether.

What does /tech/ think of this? Is it a good riddance?

No, I only use spaces. Haha. I'm not familiar with vscode, since I try to avoid proprietary software as much as I can, so I have no idea how it uses tabs. emacs 27 now supports two kinds of tabs:
- tab-line-mode shows the open buffers on the top of the window, kind of like browser tabs. Manual: https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/emacs/Tab-Line.html
- tab-bar-mode lets you have multiple screen configurations like the "perspectives" in Eclipse. Manual: https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/emacs/Tab-Bars.html

Personally I don't use either, instead if I need multiple views or something I usually start a server (with "M-x server-start") and make a new frame ("window") (with "emacsclient -c") and move that to a different desktop.

I don't use tabs, but I don't really have anything against them. Switching between buffers the normal Emacs way is a lot more efficient for most cases. I think the only use for tabs in Emacs is navigating through different window/buffer configurations, really. But it seems to me that packages like eyebrowse and persp-mode or whatever already do that a lot better than tabs possibly could. So tabs are kinda left in a weird middle ground. They look nice though, see pic.

Second hand or refurbished Samsung flagship model like S5 or S7 installed with LineageOS and properly degoogled is the answer you are looking for.

The online guides are easy and Samsung also provides Odin tool for loading the recovery which is only for windows, but an alternative to heimdall.

Seconding. The way to prevent apps from violating your privacy is to refrain from installing garbage on your phone. It's definitely worth to have a non-gimped OS that makes the device a tiny computer, rather than an appliance with more computing power than it can use.

This being said, I do understand people being mad at Purism for their misleading marketing. They're making an expensive toy for nerds who want a combination phone and single-board computer, while marketing it as a privacy-oriented phone for normies. This isn't going to end well.

>US national security agencies issued a joint statement Wednesday acknowledging a "significant and ongoing hacking campaign" that's affecting the federal government. It's still unclear how many agencies are affected or what information hackers might have stolen so far, but by all accounts the malware is extremely powerful. According to analysis by Microsoft and security firm FireEye, both of which were also infected with the malware, it gives hackers broad reach into impacted systems.
>On Thursday, Politico reported that systems at the Department of Energy and the National Nuclear Security Administration were also affected. Also on Thursday, Microsoft said it had identified more than 40 customers that were targeted in the hack. More information is likely to emerge about the hack and its aftermath.

I always like hardware manufacturing over software.

Whenever I've visited mills or shops, even once a real industrial smelter and forge, the machines and ambience were amazing. Some of this tech runs well even though it's over 100 years old.

Recently I visited an old 19th century factory that had been converted into a fabricator centre with 3D printing and CNC milling

Yep. HN sometimes gets decent links posted when they're not praising some randumb-messpelynk.io for advancing the state of the art on disrupting labour laws and user privacy, or fapping to Paul Graham's latest brainfart. But the community makes a really compelling case for nuking San Francisco.
