We want the UK to be the safest place in the world to be online, and these new laws will help us achieve this.

I wonder how this is happening:

Stop thinking like a good, law-abiding citizen. Whatever you know about technology, forget it. If you want to stay safe online, you need to start thinking like a hacker. And hackers are more paranoid about digital technology than anyone else in the world.

Here an overview why that porn ban might not be such a good idea:

Yea, I thought it is clear to everyone that this law is pure idiocy not because of teenagers but because of adults. Adults will have to give their personal data to random porn sites, often scammers. I don’t trust any crypto exchange enough to send them personal ID, I can’t imagine who would be so stupid and send their CC or passport to sone porn site, lol. This law is denying porn for adults at first place. I am surprised that people did not throw those politicians out of windows already.

Reminds me of our government’s attempt to censor the internet and banning sites that link to sites that link to … the banned site

It is the age they have decided a person is responsible for their own actions. Under 18 suggests you are the responsibility of a parent or guardian, for right or wrong.

Tbh, it isn’t consistently applied though. Parents or guardians who ‘nurture’ thugs don’t seem to have to take much responsibility.

Or fight a war, IIRC.

Surprised not to have heard more about the PinePhone at $149, running Linux!

PinePhone Linux Smartphone Priced At $149 To Arrive This Year

Smartphone users are usually torn between the two choices — Android or iOS. Their dominance is such that other competing OS like Windows, BlackBerry OS, or Symbian have almost been abandoned.

Those who don’t want either of them can opt for Pine64’s Linux phone dubbed the PinePhone, which offers good hardware and software at an affordable rate of $149.

Pine64 had announced the phone a few months ago and now the company is ready with the prototypes and plans to ship development kits in Q1 2019.

The PinePhone is expected to be ready for end-users by this year itself.

The phone will strictly be running mainline Linux and it will be powered by a SOPine module with an Allwinner A64 ARM Cortex-A53 quad-core processor.

It has a 1440x720p IPS display and the phone looks like your regular Android smartphone. On the back, it has a 5MP camera and a 2MP camera on the front.

The Linux-based phone packs 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM, a 32GB eMMC module, and 4G LTE Cat 4 support. On the connectivity front, it has 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.

The phone also comes with a headphone jack and sensors including a gyroscopic sensor and light sensor.

Pine64 aims to provide physical switches through this phone to allow users to disable or enable the wireless components, cameras, and speaker for privacy
