Hackers develop open source firmware for the PinePhone modem, use it to make phone calls - Linux Smartphones
This is astronomically good news. Thank you to all involved so far. Blob free modem firmware! 😮👍
While it might not be possible to replace a proprietary phone with a #pinephone, it can still be used for various particular tasks. And this is important, since proprietary systems often track and register everything you do (even w/ wifi off). So, instead of repeating the "it's-not-ready-yet" sentiment, one could view the current PP as a pretty capable _partial_ replacement - w/ some additional features, at that!
(A partial replacement is still not for everyone, I'm aware of that. But still.)

@tagomago @rysiek In Firefox, you can disable cookies for specific sites. See the screenshot. This will get rid of the cookie consent dialogue. To get rid of the "Login to Youtube", add this as a custom uBlock filter
It's not a bug-free solution though. It'll get rid of all the popups, but links where the start time is specified will be played from the beginning.
Don't be fooled: Google's latest announcement on third-party cookies doesn't mean it will stop tracking you. We’ve built a new site to tell you whether or not you are a test subject in Google’s latest tracking experiment: https://amifloced.org/

Surely some thoughts in this for #indywales, too
"Github no longer supports this web browser."
Gitlab loops you on a "checking your browser" web page.
Good job, W3C.
Welcome back to days of Internet Explorer, but there are three Internet Explorers: the one Google makes, the one Google feeds, and the one Google stole which was in turn stolen from KDE.
If you don't use one of these, whether your browser can support standards is of no substance.
Web is like those public toilets which you look at then go, "I'd rather go into the woods.".

SNP: indy ref by 2023
The Scottish National Party, currently dominant in polling for the next election, promises a new #independence referendum by 2023. #Brexit effect has increased the probability of success of the referendum https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/scottish-nationalists-pledge-independence-referendum-by-end-2023-2021-04-16/
I like how #Google now displays the cookie/tracking consent banner *full-page*, blocking any and all functionality of their search.
This means that for the bit more privacy conscious among us, who up until now just used private browsing mode Google search is effectively unusable.
Meanwhile, #DuckDuckGo and other privacy-conscious search engines have no cookie/tracking consent banner.
Google tried to be smart and push users to "just agree", instead they're pushing more users away. 👍
