1st attempt ever. Wrong exposure, too low and eyeballed focus (should have used a star but didn't have time). It's... a blob. But one can imagine some details of the original shape. Failure, but encouraging.

"Do you have something to hide?" is a manipulative rebuke to those that use #encryption.

It would help us all turn this conversation around. Because, the answer is: YES, we do have something to hide.

- Medical history.
- Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.
- Billing and banking information.
- Purchase information.
- Web search history.
And more...

A week ago Unbox Therapy featured the Librem 13 v4 on their channel youtu.be/hVcJgCvFuWo We had no idea they were going to do the review and were so happy that both Lewis and Willy found it "Simple, Clean. The most secure experience you can have." If you haven't had a chance to watch the video yet, which is nearly on 2.4m views, we've got a summary of highlights for you puri.sm/posts/the-librem-13-re #Purism #Librem #Librem13 #PureOS #Linux #linuxLaptop

My SailfishOS-based Jolla phone, 5+ years old hardware, is still getting software updates. Puts Android scrap phones to shame, really. No serious privacy concerns either. It's not a perfect phone by any means, but it's been a mostly carefree experience for me, which I appreciate a lot.

QQ! Do you want to live in a 5G-enabled city?
