I like LibreOffice but if your goal is MS Office compatibility you are better off trying OnlyOffice

I know this will usually draw the ire of more experienced users (yes I use Arch btw) but if you really want an install that is as hands-off and foolproof as possible you are generally gonna be better off with an Ubuntu distro.

I put Kubuntu on PCs for beginners/noobs because it gives them access to more advanced options if they need them in the future while also typically being fully functional out of the box.

Ubuntu distros typically have extensive hardware support and a lot of testing. Yeah it's not going to be the most cutting-edge but you don't want that, you want it to "just work"

It doesn't really bother me tbh.

KDE's Discover app pulls from the distro package manager, snap, and flat hub. AppImages to me are like "portable" executables and don't really need an app store. However you can use Gear Lever to update them.

Especially considering they already put the battery external, if you have to shove a battery in your pocket and run a wire up to your head they might as well have put more of the electronics there too.

It would conserve a lot of weight and space and make it more comfortable to wear

Is it possible to get a virtual credit card for a different country?

I wanted to get my mom YouTube Premium for her birthday but don't want to pay the ridiculous annual price for my country (especially since she mostly just watches YouTube shorts). She uses an iPhone so trying to get adblocker would be too much of a hassle, especially if it stops working. She won't be able to figure out how to...

@Rootiest@lemmy.world avatar

Yeah as far as I know this still works.

You need to use a valid address (there are sites for generating one)

You also need to use a credit card that has never previously been used in Google with another address

While I'm as skeptical as you are, I don't think people recognizing you is a good metric.

A better test would be if an AI trained on your younger face could accurately and reliably identify you with your adult face.

The way AI and human face recognition work are different from each other. An AI may be able to identify you based on markers that human recognition doesn't account for

I bought a WD Black 4TB gen4 nvme for just under $200 over the holidays.

The listing says up to 7,300MB/s. I only have a gen3 SSD slot so I can't verify that but it saturates the gen3 capabilities.

As I understand it, it's just as they said:

Calculating primes is fairly straightforward so you calculate a few large prime numbers, and do some math to them.

Now you have a strong key that didn't require a supercomputer to create but taking that final number and turning it back into those original primes is a much more computationally expensive proposition.

In fact, it's one that's not viable with current technology.

I came across this issue on my own discord server, the system kinda encourages you towards those higher security levels without really being especially clear about what it will do to the user experience.

One thing I would clear up though:

I think both sides in the OP are correct here.

Yes, the server admin sets the security level that triggers those requirements.

But it's also true that the server/admins do not get your phone number, that private information is only kept within discord's verification system. It is not sent to the server admins.

Firstly: of course he knew it was illegal.

Secondly: ignorance of the law does not give you immunity from breaking it

I think though that (using your argument: given the severity/importance of the claim if true) there's even more necessity that you produce even circumstantial evidence to justify suspicion of a crime before making the accusation.

Similar to how cops are supposed to show probable cause before detaining or pulling you over, etc.

Given that he couldn't even come close to producing any kind of evidence, even flimsy evidence, and there's verifiable proof of him pressing election officials and others to illegally alter or create votes to back up his claim, I think it's clear that he knew very well there was no truth to his claims.

It is a consequence of how the networks were physically built when providers thought that cable and download speeds were all anyone needed; it's not just a software switch they can flip if they wanted to.

This is true of so much of our infrastructure in the US.

Not bandwidth speeds specifically but just aging infrastructure that was built out long ago and not properly maintained and/or updated over time

They are a form of public key cryptography.

The private key never leaves your device.

You can't really transfer them between devices.

A lot of your other questions depend on the service. Generally you can still opt to use a password+2FA instead even if you have PassKeys enabled so adding one on a second device would simply require logging in with the password first or authenticating from another device if the service supports it.

I don't use 1Password so I can't speak to their setup.

Beeper Mini is no less private than using iMessage on an iPhone.

It doesn't even require an AppleID let alone require your credentials for one.

The cloud service that Apple didn't block is the one that requires you to give your Apple credentials to a cloud bridge.

Same thing that's been in the news about some sharing info with police. The comment of the messages are ete encrypted but notifications of who is talking to who is not

Beeper Mini's GCM server only handles a "new message waiting" trigger, it doesn't contain any private data like who the message is from or its contents, just that a new message is available.

Rootiest ,
@Rootiest@lemmy.world avatar

I'm happy to pay to support them.

If you'd rather not pay the Beeper Cloud service is free and all of the matrix bridges it uses are open source.

The source code behind how Beeper Mini works is available as well but will require a client of some sort to be written since you can't just use a matrix bridge and a matrix app.

The guy who started Beeper also created the Pebble Watch and they have always maintained open source alternatives for their bridges.

I'm just happy that a company with those ethics is the one to take up this fight against Apple, this could have been a $10/month app from a company who believes in closed source and pushing ads/tracking users' data.

Beeper is a good company that actually cares about privacy and security and that should be commended.

Notifications are generated after the message is pulled from Apple's servers to your device.

The push messages just tell your device a message is available to be pulled. It doesn't contain any message contents or metadata.

It's basically just "you have a new message waiting" and then your phone will ping Apple's server to request the message.
