Also thank you for opting for the more powerful cpu! Made my day!

Does this mean the RAM specs are also as announced previously (3 GB)? Thanks for sharing the news! Really pumped for what's next!

@jonw I think there is just something that happens when people get paid to work on something.

So I loved the Office. The original and US version were great. I just found through Netflix that Stromberg is the German version of the Office, and it is surprisingly pretty good!

I would argue that free software has nothing to do with price, as free software can cost money, and my IMHO should cost money. But yes, I too ❤️ free software!

Thoughts? Is an iPhone better than a completely Google free android phone? - 2/2

Good point.
But you can argue you actually own an android phone and you are just renting an apple product.
I realize you can't win it all (well until the Librem 5 is finished and out that is) but I wonder how much better security and privacy could be if you did more than rent a product to participate in the walled garden? If hen you own something you are free to implement better security - 1/2

@gcspitfire Psssh, just a TI-36? I've seen emulators for 83,84,89, 91,and 92 out there. Those are the big boys/girls of the calculator world, and they all fit in my pocket. So in your face former teachers.

Whenever I think Facebook has reached the pinnacle of Evil they manage to surprise me… I have to say that the “Facebook VPN which rewards you with $20/mth” (aka “Project Atlas”¹) plan is so disgusting it defies belief.

They even know how Evil the whole thing is because they go to the pains of hiding behind shell companies so Apple doesn’t block them.

How can this not be criminal?
