Entropy is not the enemy... Entropy is the timer, the game is a time trial and we are the enemy

Can you turn it off when you’re on private roads? Lots of those in Texas

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this problem… Tesla just had it around a year ago. An infected computer can also leak passwords from a legitimate password manager, and opportunists might use the event as a cover up. Which is why the evidence might not fit 100%. I haven’t seen anything fishy recently, I have one phone on it but might transfer and add lines to it… if the Vevil lets me, I remember they gave me a real hard time about a non-carrier Pixel 3a that I gave up on.
Chromebook 515 and the Chromebook 515 Enterprise. The only difference, as far as I can tell, is that the latter ships with Chrome Enterprise, which includes extra security
That is hilarious. Read that as the former doesn’t pass Google’s requirements for Chrome Enterprise at a hardware level. Windows 11 is probably causing TPM shortages and Chrome Enterprise would absolutely require the secure element.
I think this is fine… ideally future TPM’s will come with physical protection for cryogenic and electron microscope attacks, and it’s good to push the industry to a level that regular people will have some protection against state actors. But then again, it’s not ideal if you’re a Journalist.
Less than 35% of americans do according to a 2019 study. Which ends up leading companies like Cricket/AT&T and Ally Bank to do dumb heuristic stuff like blocking VPNs and engaging in security theatre.
I understand they operate as a sort of skunkworks/loosely regulated experimental project… but not doing a haveibeenpwned check on this many prepaid customers is a definite oversight. It’s hard to do 2-step authentication when you are a carrier… specially an online one, specially with customers who’ve never heart of TOTP. MetroPCS is an outright nightmare to deal… I do not want Visible to turn into PITA.
It’s good to be in the YMCA (inside joke, don’t worry about it)
The battery seems fishy. If everything checks out, this might be the best hobbyist battery ever… Good for powering a raspberry Pi 4 for 4:20, nice

They are priced agressively, and seem like a badge job of 1+ earbuds. No mention of a microphone anywhere… I guess they want you to use the phone’s mic, that’s even recommended with the Apple Pro headphones as I’ve seen them cut off mic audio during video calls.
MIL stands for mother in-law in this context. Not Mil, the insecure and particular gril urban dictionary gives as the first definition. A gril by the way is "A very mythical creature found in games, they are know as the opposite sex of a boy." The internet is a wonderful place.

… sir, have you ever worked with pro audio? Filtering internal component noise is a huge pita. They managed to squeeze a 16.4Wh battery in a phone with a removable back… That’s a serious achievement… the headphone jack was sacrificed to accomplish that. I would rather have faster USB-C charging than a built in headphone jack. If you really care about audio you’d get a Hydiz Sonata or jerry rig an external dac… I do that even though my laptops and desktop have internal headphone jacks… The noise floor on my desktop is trash.
Mind you removable batteries need beefier outer shells as they are meant to be manually handled, and the phone needs structural support around that area as they can’t glue the battery and use it as support. Jerry rig everything should have a blast with this one.

With the new 16.75Wh iPhone, according to the EPA, you could drive a Tesla Model 3 OVER 1km !!!!!
