New version 0.2002.4 rolling out for Android and iOS. Main new feature is Private Messaging! 🎉

...installing alternative firmware nearly universally
1.) Increases privacy
2.) Increases device functionality
3.) Strikes a blow against the disgusting practice of planned obsolescence...
4.) ...thereby saving you money...
5.) ...and preventing environmental harm.

...which brings me to another point. Rockbox is an amazing piece of software for old MP3 players.

Last night I installed very recent software on an '06 Sansa (remember those?).

I am very impressed. Within minutes, I was exploring a Mandelbrot fractal and playing chess against my MP3 player. Rockbox comes with a dozen or so apps, and a similar amount of games

Computers should be able to compute anything (within hardware limits), even if they're cell phones or MP3 players.

Golly am I glad my definition of a cheap phone is a Samsung S5, running Lineage OS, without google.

Unlocking the bootloader essentially amounted to pressing a couple of buttons to confirm that "Yes, I'm aware this may damage my phone". It only took a couple of minutes. That's the way it should be.

On every device. Ever.

Looking for a simple way to play your #music collection while avoiding the potential tracking when an #Android or #Apple mobile phone is connected via cable or bluetooth?

If your vehicle has a USB port, some cars allow you to plug in a memory stick with audio files. You can potentially store and play thousands of songs recorded from your CD, download or vinyl collection.

Organize your .ogg and .mp3 files by artist and album for an easy way to find your tracks.

Now even the FBI is warning about your smart TV’s security

My solution is an old laptop running Lubuntu with Kodi installed, hooked up to an old "dumb" TV. I beam videos to it with NewPipe and Kore, from @fdroidorg .

WebMediaShare, also from F-Droid, also worth mentioning.

Detailed blogpost about my setup coming soon.
