I purchased a Pine phone about 2 weeks ago. They are on backorder, but no google products on them at all.

I'm an engineer, so my interest is mostly in development. I use my phone exclusively for phone calls listening to audio, ocassionally seeing vidoeo, GPS location, and browsing the web when there's not a computer available. I don't care a bit about apps.There's a 100ms audio delay for audio recording built into...

I was deplatformed by Pornhub for too many screen splashes in a 24 hour period. I bet that never happened to Hunter.
Don't be flippant about it.
I was de-platformed from Pinterest for being too gay

Careful with those pine phones. Yes, they are de-googled but the OS is not hardened against hack attacks like iphone and android are.
Is there an tech reason why OS cannot be on the modern incantation of a ROM chip? Do the same with any exe type software. If the storage only has data, and nothing can be executed that is not on a ROM, then the computer/phone is hack-proof. If constant updates is an issue, get those updates through a hash and flash them, as a flash device can't be that hard to make. No more worms and malware attached to downloaded files.
I was fired from my previous job because I didn't bow down on Slack to the BLM bullshit of our Oakland office. Does that count?

I'm interested in the current status and viability of the pine phone as well (preferably with t mobile but not necessary). I am planning on having 2 phones, keeping my android for business and add pine phone for private matters. Same for email adding probably proton mail account in the future.
have pinephone, it's running Manjaro. Slow response on the screen (like ridiculously slow) Bringing up firefox can take like 10 seconds. Full linux, similar to working on a raspberry pi. Has SSHD, standardized installation procedures with pacman. It's a computer.
richwicks sayshttps://tox.chat/ If Tox demands an app install, that's a big red flag for me. Pretty much all apps are spyware imho.If it works via the web, then I'll use it.
I can build a client, if you can build access to it.
So, I notice on this site, if I have have two webpages open, and post in one web browser, my post will appear in the other web browser - the second I post. How do you do this? Is this an HTTP push or what?
I trust a binary FAR more than I trust a website.
Websockets. All browsers now have the ability to leave a tcp connection to the server open, after which either server or client can send data.
I don't trust other binaries at all, especially not on phones, which are extremely closed and proprietary environments.
Is this webserver (the one were you're reading this on) running Apache or Tomcat?
Setting up the backend doesn't seem to be described anywhere for websockets.
