In-reply-to » T-Mobile Has Started Selling Your App Data To Advertisers T-Mobile has just officially launched its new ad platform, known as T-Mobile Advertising Solutions. That innocuous name hides a rather sketchy business model -- it aggregates your mobile application usage and sells it to advertisers. Android Police reports: The specifics of the program will sound familiar to anyone who has followed the ebb and flow of browser t ... ⌘ Read more

@slashdot@feeds.twtxt.net so fucking disgusting. Advertising based business models really need to be banned 🤬

In-reply-to » We assembled one of those yesterday: https://www.omlet.de/shop/h%C3%BChnerzucht/walkinrun_h%C3%BChnerauslauf/ Way more exhausting than I thought. 🤣 I’m so sore …

@movq@www.uninformativ.de we used to have a chicken coop and a couple of chickens! I even had the door completely automated with an hour to an hour connected to my local Wi-Fi network 😆

In-reply-to » @prologic basically, code in one language, and make wrappers (sort of what he did) to said code in Java/Kotlin (Android) and Swift (iOS)

@novaburst@twt.nfld.uk Actually this is quite doable. And it would provide for a very nice “native” experience, as you would just crap the same common library in each unique UI/UX system (Java/Kotlin vs. Swift/ObjC/Framework).

We would just need to define what the library would look like.

In-reply-to » hi guys. I am trying to solve the following problem in Go: I have a go template that just uses {{.Body}} or {{printed "%s" .Body}} for output. on the go side I am using templates.ExecuteTemplate(w,"view.html",data) as input. the data.Body is a []byte which contains valid HTML. The problem is, in the browser, or the templates.Execute only send escaped text to the browser. But it should not so I can create html on the server side

@carsten@yarn.zn80.net Yup

@carsten@yarn.zn80.net You want to use template.HTML in this case, to mark the “HTML” as safe to render as-is without escaping it. This is by design and for security. If you know your input is safe, then use this instead of a string

In-reply-to » A Linux custom OS/distro that can be booted in under ~100ms Hmmm 🤔 Intrigued? 🤔

@mckinley@twtxt.net Close, based on some of the work of uLinux 😅 – Still working on it, haven’t opened up the repo yet, but needless the init is basically entirely written in Go (with a few exceptions, like I’m using mdev from busybox, haven’t figured out how to replace that yet).

In-reply-to » Don't forget, weekly video call coming up soon at 0500 (UTC)

@mckinley@twtxt.net Actually, I’m really sorry about this. But I think I’m going to have to pull out. I blame myself, I was up till 3am last night working on something (shhh 🤫) and I got up late. We have friends over today so that’s going to collide 😅 You guys however can host a call (it’s a community thing anyway) and have a video Yarn and post what y’all talked about 🤗

In-reply-to » Scientists Unveil Bionic Robo-fish To Remove Microplastics From Seas Scientists have designed a tiny robot-fish that is programmed to remove microplastics from seas and oceans by swimming around and adsorbing them on its soft, flexible, self-healing body. From a report: Microplastics are the billions of tiny plastic particles which fragment from the bigger plastic things used every day such as water bo ... ⌘ Read more

In-reply-to » Intel Just Asked the EU For $624 Million To Pay It Back For Overturned Anti-AMD Fine Intel is seeking to be paid interest of $624 million on the overturned $1.1 billion fine it received from the European Commission back in 2009. From a report: The antitrust ruling was overturned at the beginning of the year, and so Intel has gone to EU General Court seeking compensation and interest on the fine. I ... ⌘ Read more

@slashdot@feeds.twtxt.net That’s rather hilarious but also quite scary as this sets a rather worrying trend that corporations are basically more powerful than governments 😳

In-reply-to » The EU Has Introduced a New 'Digital' ID. Here's What It Means for You. [politico.eu]
The EU's "digital" ID (an app to prove identity online) plan raises privacy concerns: "[it] could allow the private sector to better access people's government-certified information, actually strengthening the likes of Facebook and Google and the targeted advertising industry. https://www.politico.eu/article/eu-europe-digital-id/

@carsten@yarn.zn80.net I think I’ve always maintained this; Any kind of so-called “Digital ID” really should be held by the owner. not some random “cloud” service (not even a Government one)

think about how you present ID today…

In-reply-to » []() Media the new EGO electric ride on mower. I’m putting it on my Xmas list. despite the fact it won’t actually fit through our side gate!

@mckinley@twtxt.net Actually… EGO Power are actually really good shit 😅 They use 48v LiPo batteries (in this nice modular design) and all their “tools” and the motors they use in everything are fully brushless motors.

Essentially, runtimes are long, the motors are very very powerful (you could cut your leg off). They even have a chainsaw (which I have) as well as a powerful blow vac (air) and hedger, and gras trimmer (all of which we have).

The only one of their products that doesn’t cut the mustard (so to speak) is the Lawn Mower (not the ride-on one, I’m sure that thing is a powerful beast), which doesn’t cut out grass very well, which really is no fault of AGO as our grass is really of a thick and hard to cut variety 😅
