Ah, I'm so glad Apple has convinced me to buy not one, not two, but three laptops in a single year. Fantastic.

Time to watch another hours-long Apple infomercial, I suppose.

Do you think the tiny apartment family in the Apple Event are all paid Apple employees, or tiny corporate slaves?

@diabeticus @DatGuyChrisss hold on a second now, Iโ€™d never be wishing for his healthy recovery, if you catch my drift ๐Ÿ™ƒ

I certainly hope Trump has COVID for as short a time as possible.

Mozilla Google budget screaming 

Something is just wrong here... Mozilla just extended its deal with Google (making it the numero uno search engine) for something like 400 million dollars PER YEAR. For the next three years.

That is 1.2 BILLION dollars from 2020 to 2023.

If you cannot run a freaking NON-PROFIT on 400 MILLION dollars PER YEAR that means:

a) You are paying your executives too much.
b) You don't know how to manage a non-profit.
c) All of the above.

The Mozilla layoff is terrible - not only for the former workers, but also the web at large.

If we are concerned about the future of a more private & secure web, without a monopoly - we might want to double-down on our support of Mozilla to ensure that more people keep their jobs.

Being vocal about the direction of #Firefox & #Mozilla to appropriate channels is surely needed - less Google & more innovation.

Let's work to oust any leadership without the vision we all need for a better web.

I just found this great privacy research and tech channel on #peertube that I feel a lot of people would appreciate:)

Take a look and show him some love

@sunknudsen

This is exactly the use case I was describing just recently. Single-user peertube instances for the greatest control meanwhile being part of the larger network.

Spin one up:)
