A recent article on a big tech news site included this phrase:
"[...] Linux phones like the PinePhone, [...]are full of closed-source firmware from non-open components"
We'd like to clear the record: The #PinePhone has two blobs -- neither runs on the main SoC: One loaded to WiFi/BT module, other enclosed within the cell modem. In the modern world of tech, both blobs are unavoidable.
For an overview from someone with deep knowledge of both the PinePhone and Librem 5: https://tuxphones.com/yet-another-librem-5-and-pinephone-linux-smartphone-comparison/
Last week, I was attending a fascinating lecture about India, titled: "India, an invisble country".
The speaker is Fons Stoelinga, the Dutch ambassador to India from 2012-2018.
He says that the challenges India faces are unprecedented, and he easily grabbed my attention for 1,5 hours.
He talks about culture, politics, Hindu-nationalism and the justice system.
Please share what you think!
