Nice try, FBI.

LOL.

I mean, it's pretty likely that you're reporting this data (via UA) to Saidit anyway…

Raise your hand if you are on a computer. Me!

[–]wizzwizz4 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Me! Though that applies to everyone here; no other devices we've invented are capable of accessing websites.

I don't even use a cellphone, lol.

Yep, the strongest privacy and safety mechanism is to not participate in their gadget game.

I love the looks people give when you tell them you don't have a cellphone and don't want one. They look at you with a mixture of confusion and distrust, it's kind of hilarious.

I have experienced this a lot. They always ask me then how I am even able to live without such a thing - and then I always ask back how they survived the time until everyone had one. They seem to have forgotten, though it isn't even long ago. I've also recognised how the mindset and attention span of cellphone users differs from my own more and more from year to year. They recognise the difference, too - while I have the impression that cellphone users become numb and dumb from using it, they have the impression of me being the weirdest weirdo that has ever escaped from where all the weirdos may come from for not using a cellphone at all. It makes my human value almost worthless in their eyes. When I used to sit with a crowd of people and then everyone pulled out his cellphone to stare into it for himself, I felt like kinda extraterrestrial. And because they sensed that too, I became more and more excluded because I could no longer belong without a cellphone, so much did these people suddenly define themselves on these small pocket-devices. It consumes their soul like a vacuum cleaner.

Whooaaaa nelly, that's one good post!

Yeah, they've been absorbed by the phone - or seemingly, absorbed the phone INTO themselves and it then slowly takes over from within, it's PART of them - similar to how people say "we are already cyborgs". Man and machine are ALREADY one, but machine is slowly becoming the majority.

Ultimately, the reason I ditched my cellphone in the first place was my ex calling me every second of every day until I just threw the phone into a wall. 10 years later however, I can see so much more good came from her pushing me to that point.

Man and machine aren't able to become one, that is just the illusion that man makes himself while he is sacreficing himself for nothing. The attempt will not lead to machines becoming more alive like men, but to men becoming more dead like machines.

The attempt will not lead to machines becoming more alive like men, but to men becoming more dead like machines.

This is true for the way we're currently going about it, but it's not a law of the universe. There are good ways to do this: How To Become A Centaur by Nicky Case is a good thing to read.

You could have just blocked her

I wondered someone says about his relationship here.

But you are participating in their browser game now...(confusing)

[–]Vigte 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I just don't feel the need to carry said device with me 24/7 and let anyone just interrupt what I'm doing (or, track/market/datamine, etc) whenever they want?

I can sit down and use my PC when I want to... and I unplug and leave it when I'm done.

I didn't say I was some kind of amish person, shunning all technology - I was simply pointing out that the only way to be secure from tech-based crime, is to not use it.

same

[–]happysmash27 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Mine: LineageOS.

[–]Snow[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Are we going to marginalize someone not uses this one?LOL.

[–]Afor 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

LineageOS

[–]Snow[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Buddy!

[–]azshashoshz 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Resurrection Remix, which is based on LineageOS

[–]Snow[S] 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I am counting...

[–][deleted] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

how do you guys use totally different operating systems, you'd need to download it? and it'd be too huge. Seems they make you use the one that comes with the phone

[–]wizzwizz4 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It's not that much to download. A few megabytes, max, unless you want loads of fancy stuff that nobody uses.

[–]738 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Resurrectionremix all the way. Makes it possible to tweak all sorts of stuff without installing Xposed

[–]the_real_farfetchd 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Pixys OS

[–]Snow[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I am waiting for someone say "iOS".

[–]Tom_Bombadil 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Tandy.

[–]PikonParadox 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Why do you ask?

[–]Snow[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I am looking for the "normal " standard here.

Still, no one using iOS.

[–]deleted 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Lineage is boring

PostmarketOS & HavocOS

[–]the_real_farfetchd 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Isn't that the one that comes with Plasma Mobile as the UI? Nice!
