@ozoned That's nearly 3 times the price of the regular edition.
And I found the regular edition a bit difficult to swallow personally, but I'd at least attempt to pay that for a linux phone. $2k for a "Made in the USA", which it isn't, phone makes no sense. This is just my personal feelings, so maybe to someone it there it's worth it. Like I said, good luck to purism. Hopefully they have a market for this.
At 2k this sounds like a financial donation to Purism and you get a free phone as a perk. :-)
For privacy purposes there is virtually nothing you can trust nowadays (from software vulnerabilities to unknown hardware functions, and tracking pretty much everywhere online), and using a mobile phone... releases so much about you every day. It's not about trusting governments anymore, the data trail we leave behind is huge now and we have no control over it.
While I am a US citizen I can understand your point. At this point I don't know how any country can trust the US to do anything good and right and worse so for countries where we already had strained relationships.
Fortunately the internet and technology can cut through that and we can find humanity and good amongst each other.
@ozoned Why is it $2000?
Apparently America is just three times better so it costs three times now? That's sarcasm by the way.
It's just absolutely crazy in my opinion.
