>>1078 I'm pretty excited to order one, but I'll probably order in the 2nd or 3rd run so Pine has a chance to work out the bugs. I'm really happy with my Pinebook Pro, works like a dream. >>2642 Shoo, shoo
>>1711 >Would you believe me if I told you I would rather have the chink government spying on me than my own (U.S.) government? Yes, which is why I personally use Yandex unironically. I trust the Russian more than I do Google and the rest of Silicon Valley. Still, the Chinese are not as less trustworthy as you might think. Looking at the various videos articles from /cvg/, you watch as many Chinese both official communists and unofficial shitheads deliberately botch up products before they are shipped. The Chinese are also known to root many domestically made devices with backdoor software and hardware. Sure, they might not be an existential threat like the U.S. Government, but the companies that make tracking devices are selling and using that data without your permission, often maliciously. To completely ensure a secure phone with secure components in America, while expensive, obscure, hard, and tedious, is at least still possible. We ought to enjoy and use that freedom while it lasts. >>2546 >>2550 >Do the librem 5 cellular data/bluetooth/wifi hard switches actually work as a way to avoid any triangulation methods? The purpose of a phone like Pine or LibreM is lessen the footprint of a communication device you cannot not use so that whatever data a mobile company, NSA, and the like are getting on you, it won't be much and won't cause severe future legal or social problems, if any. Like the other anon said, the cell phone by it's very nature tracks your location. It cannot work without doing so. If you truly wanted to be safe from any and all phone tracking the only way to win is to not play that game. Welcome to the brave new world!

So is OLED/microLED going to ever get market share, or will desktop users just be stuck scrounging up half-dead CRTs and buying mediocre LCD panels?
6 posts omitted.
>>2463 Not with the advent of Quantom dot displays. Those have all the advantages of SEDs while being more kike friendly in that they can be integrated into existing LCD fabrication methods unlike the more autistic SEDs.
Are there any technologies that could be manufactured by individuals? I assume a lot of new ideas never get into production because they cannot be mass-produced easily. But suppose you only want to manufacture small quantities, would that open up any new doors?
>>2829 That's not how any of this works. Mass production is always far cheaper than individual production, "cannot be mass-produced easily" means it's only two or ten times cheaper rather than a hundred or a million times cheaper. Integrated circuits are in the "million times cheaper" category, the ability to make enormous batches of them at once is the only reason they're economically viable.
quantum dot doesnt fix LCD, it just makes color better. you still get terrible viewing angle issues, anti glare coatings, and pixel response curves >>1301 it's all moot. it doesn't matter how big the screen is, as long as it isn't assballs quality like LCD
>>2830 But suppose there were a manufacturing process that would require a high IQ individual to manufacture a device. Most companies would probably never even attempt to research such ideas, because even if they could sell professional monitors for 10k USD per monitor, they wouldn't be able to get any kind of significant volume, because there wouldn't be enough high-IQ workers. For an individual with the right skillset and the right tools, however, that approach could be doable.

>>2835 >NOO YOU CANT MOCK MY PERSECUTION COMPLEX NOOOOO Learn to build a convincing argument, tourist: if there's powerful actors ready to infiltrate every tiny online community of a certain kind, creating more tiny online communities of that certain kind won't help you get away from them. But given that you vomit Terry maymays you got from youtube and don't even know what decentralization is, I'm probably asking too much.
>>2838 Fine, let me show you how it works, agent. >global p2p chan infiltrator can >1. try to get in the biggest mods provider >2. sway discussion by sliding ddos 1 is protected by the anon nature of the network, mods data can be like posts on the p2p network but with cypto signature 1 is also as strong as the opssec and mind of the admins, so don't trust anyone if 1 falls, seasoned anons will see the difference. Then they can use another mods provider or become one. 2 is protected by glow detecting mods providers Together the quality and level of subversion depends only on the decentralized mod providers. Decentralized means no central authority, in this case everyone can be the central authority. Now go suck your boss's fuck and report to him.

And even ignoring all of that, keep in mind that you're a faggot so assblated you think any one guy disagreeing with you on a niche site must be a CIA nigger: you're going to snap at other mods and start drana faster that I can type "told you so".

If anyone can modify code of free software, why don't people make better versions of programs like GIMP and other free alternatives to professional software? Shouldn't we have several versions of different free programs?
51 posts and 4 images omitted.
>>2140 >why don't people make better versions of programs like GIMP I don't think the homos that bitch and moan about GIMP know what they want/agree on what they want. GIMP already had an interface change thanks to this anyway. What's left to do?
>>2404 >http://archive.fo/XZvng Autism was strong on both sides on this. Does the furry fuck think he's the president, acting high and mighty because he was too important to be dragged into it? The other dude doing the port wasn't too reasonable either. I understand his frustration since a random nobody showed up DEMANDING shit like some authoritarian leader. But he was also a sore autist shit. "Petulant children", and dropping the project altogether for a minor altercation.
>>2801 >What's left to do? Tool that draws circles and squares. GIMP is the only image editor on the planet that doesn't have this.
The one and only reason people don't fix shit is because: >1. It takes a long ass time to learn a codebase in 2020. Have you seen the absurd LOC in modern projects? >2. Projects are not documented enough to be openly hackable >3. Nobody enjoys trying to make sense of C codebases with a thousand imported header files and single-letter variables, specially when they are not well commented. >4. Some developers have some loud and ass-backwards opinions and they will reject your patches because of some vague notions about hoe it doesn't fit the project's philosophy. People are afraid of having their efforts thrown away due to some dude's ego. Open development suffers from the gigantic autism of the average developer. Hackable software needs some extensive documentation and not many programmers are up to that task, which causes people to be afraid of diving deep into it.

Everything is fucked, because of centralization. I can't get any form of employment if I don't use botnet tools. You have yourselves to thank.

>>2821 Why are you asking a loaded question? Why should I find you a job? You didn't know the system doesn't like libre source because it exposes and eliminates the (((profits))) and big brother jail society which is the mass surveillance dystopian talmudic assrape they keep burdening and exploiting people with, selling their data like NPC's for some fucked up schizophrenic purpose like OP described? Just like anything else not kosher it won't exactly be advertised on TV. Because the system is about controlling the owners in jails, with the devices they bought, for their own ends, rather than the owners of said purchased being capable of fully controlling and modifying what they paid for if they so wish. It's always about depriving people of freedom. Right now a subset of people are trying and have made small businesses oriented around making open source alternative advances related to hardware such as, phones, motherboards, CPU, peripherals et cetera, for a decent amount of money. What profit they make i have no idea. But if you have the skillset required make a business yourself or maybe try to get a job there by sending an email. This is implying FSF FOSS hardware will suddenly become trendy and not just a very important issue recognized by a small group of people who are not just consumers and who actually care. But who knows, maybe plebs will be tired of this technological judaism in the near future and finally see the importance.

Given that the Mobile World Congress got cancelled and industrial suppliers are starting to feel the lack of cheap imported chinkshit due to all the shutdowns it's as good a time as any to have a thread discussing Corona-chan's antics from a /tech/nician perspective. Summary of recent events: >Apple, Samsung and others shut down their Chinese stores >Wuhan funeral homes recieve around 100 bodies to cremate a day with the fire numbers rising, are understaffed and overworked to the brim >More Chinks are infected and/or dying than can be transported to Hospitals or crematoriums >Smuggling rings and militias formed around Wuhan and possibly other cities, attack helicopter formations spotted flying over neighbourhoods >Hospitals don't have enough Masks or test kits for diagnosing let alone beds to house their patients, now supply lines of general medicinal goods are starting to choke too >PRC economy at a standstill, CCP is paying businesses for now but many companies say they won't survive if it keeps up >Corona cases outside of Chinkland keep rising in number, most of them on cruise ships >Western companies and suppliers growing increasingly concerned at the lack of goods coming from China, automotive production set to be particularly affected due to all the parts produced in Chinkland >On top of all that there have also been reported outbreaks of Bird flu and Swine flu among Chinese livestock >CCP desperately trying to downplay and censor everything with help from the WHO >MWC cancelled as every major participant drops out How will Inthell, AMD, Jewgle and others handle this? The majority of their fabs are situated in the PRC which is coughing with no survivors, they can't meet their production goals if the quarantine measures keep up and moving all their shit to India, South Africa or Venezuela can't be done in a short timeframe.

Someone i know is doing HNC (Scottish) networking in college and they seem to be confident that they could just develop a virus that could destroy general A.I., something that will be infinitely more intelligent than us, i would think something so intelligent would have countermeasures against petty viruses.
