It's a sad day, but I've finally got rid of my Google Pixel 2. Have thoroughly enjoyed using it, but now that it's EOL I've upgraded to a different phone.
I know that Samsung is hardly a good example of digital rights, but I've got to balance it with digital waste, longevity, future proofing and work requirements.
I reckon that when it's time to upgrade again, it'll be for one of the fossphones.
A new blog post. It is about downloading your email from Gmail and reading them somewhere else.
Thanks to @hund and @erm67 for tips.
One of every four Swede have one or more unused mobile phone(s) laying around at home. That's some serious e-waste! And not to mention a lot of money as well.
I wish that people was better at decluttering and selling/giving away unused items. It would be good for both our planet and our wallets.
Just was talking about something I thought I would share.
About 10 years ago I did work for a company who lost their Linux Admin.I was a 6 month contract until they got a permanent employee. They had only 1 Linux admin for 400ish Linux users and 30 servers. They had 3 Windows admin for 200ish windows users and 10 servers. The Windows Techs stayed busy while I hunted for things to do. Ended up hardening and writing automation and inventory systems.
Linux just works.

The web scam known as Brave browser gets caught, again, doing shady stuff. This time they stuff their affiliate links/code into your searches and URLs so that Brave makes money each time you visit certain sites.
People need to stop using Brave. It's a bad faith actor in the browser market. At this point even Chrome would be preferable.
