    Long time Primus fan here. Saw them in a small bar in Trenton New Jersey in the early 90s. One of the best shows I’ve ever seen.

    They spent around $750,000 building that iMessage bridge…shame…However, there are many people self-hosting and still using iMessage on Android…that will, likely, get smacked down soon. I’ve used Beeper since the early Beta (a little over three years now) and I love it.

    I don’t believe there’s a wait list anymore. You should be able to just download it from an app store for free. In the future, they’ll release a premium version that will require payment.

    It also basically undoes all of the security and privacy features of Signal.

    The world will be a better place the day after every serious news media organization leaves twitter and tells all their journalists they cannot use it as anything other than an original source to what a specific public figure has to say.

    Google's Chrome Browser Analyzing Your Browsing History with so-called "Privacy Sandbox" Feature

    For nearly two years now, Google has been gradually rolling out a feature to all Chrome users that analyzes their browsing history within the browser itself. This feature aims to replace third-party cookies and individual tracking by categorizing you into an interest category and sharing that category with advertisers. It’s...

    Microsoft stole my Chrome tabs, and it wants yours, too (www.theverge.com)

    The admin/mod team here make the final decision as to what is nice or not. Do you have a genuine grievance?

    Back in the day I used IRC but prefer Signal and Matrix now. I, also, use an email client.
