Android apps spy on users more than iOS apps do. Anyone surprised? Anyone?
Non-technical co-worker: I think I want to get into programming.
Me: 😀😁🤓 Here, read these... 📚📜📖
I love it when someone first learns to code. It's like teaching someone spells and watching their eyes widen as they do magic for the first time.
Obviously, I with Linus Torvalds all the best. Part of me does hope, however, that if he does receive an Autism diagnosis, he will be open about it. I think at this point has nothing to lose by being open about it, and it could help autism be better understood by the tech community.
After all, there are a bunch of us Autistics in the tech field, and most of us keep our mouths shut about it.
If Linus sees a clinician, I am quite confident he will receive an Autism diagnosis. https://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/3062838/linux-boss-torvalds-is-taking-a-break-to-wash-his-soapy-mouth-out
When Peter Thiel says there's a bull market in politics, I think he's spot on. Politics has become as lucrative as entrepreneurship, and as popular as show business.

Hence, you record a record; rebels rebel; a permit permits; an envelop envelopes; and you suspect the suspects.
I've used Python for many things, but never a website. I think I'm going to use it for an upcoming personal project, in place of my go-to backed language, PHP.
This may sound cheesey. We Linux users have a reputation for being prickly and brash. All of you that I've interacted with have been nothing if not kind, good-humored and respectful. This is the persona the Linux community needs. You guys are awesome.
As a Pixel 2 XL user, the thought of Google remotely changing my settings is rediculous. And their response isn't an outright apology, only that they didn't meant to effect everybody's phones.
I may go back to iPhone... At least their prison is prettier. Ha!
This would be for web development. Sorry, I should have mentioned that before.
OK guys. What's your favorite text editor (and I don't really want to use Vim, Nano, emacs, etc.)?
Two updates in a row for VS Code have utterly broken it, requiring an uninstall and reinstall. I love the text editor, but this is rediculous.
Stop trying to make Edge happen, Microsoft! https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018/09/next-windows-10-update-triggers-outrage-by-continuing-to-promote-edge/
So... mastodon is open-source and federated... and is just awesome. Apparently you don't have to have billions in ad revenue to make an awesome social network. I'm impressed, so far.
Whoa, I've read a little about the EU copyright law that was passed. What a nightmare!
A Christian with Asperger's who loves Linux, programming, and learning about... well, darn near anything. INTP.
Linux Geeks doing what Linux Geeks do..
