  1. Agreed, this is a remarkable feat regardless. And agreed, it is not for the average consumer. This first version could be considered a dev kit. I'm tempted to buy it just to support the project. And maybe to have a little piece of history. It could end up being remembered as fondly as the shitty old G1.
  2. Well, being an open-source project, it's entirely possible another hardware manufacturer could knock something together with higher specs and plop the OS on there, since that work has been done. I'm way more interested in the OS than the hardware.
  3. Yeah, you're right, it is very low-spec. I see it as more of a tinker toy at this point, and an expensive one at that. They were talking about getting it to run Android apps. Doesn't look like they've cracked that yet though.
  4. It's a first gen product and the first of it's kind. So yes, it's bound to be expensive and a little rough around the edges (although I personally like the chunky modular design). The OS is the real selling point here for people who value privacy. If it becomes popular, the future iterations will be much more polished and feature-rich.
  5. Guess what, the Ubuntu phone just got released. See above.
  6. True, I'm on Verizon too and it's the only thing that works in my town, so I'm probably out of luck there. @Linus Review please?
  7. I do really like that about it, yeah. Give be a brick that I can tear down and fix any day!
  8. I've been wanting an alternative to iOS and Android for a long time. And if this project is a success, we'll finally have an option. And it's an option that gives you full control, as Linux tends to do! Read more here: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2019/09/purisms-librem-5-phone-starts-shipping-a-fully-open-gnulinux-phone/ "The internal construction of the Librem 5 is absolutely wild. While smartphones today are mostly a single mainboard with every component integrated into it, the Librem 5 actually has a pair of M.2 slots that house full-size, off-the-shelf LTE and Wi-Fi cards for connectivity, just like what you would find in an old laptop. The M.2 sockets look massive on top of the tiny phone motherboard, but you could probably replace or upgrade the cards if you wanted."
  9. Oh. Wait. Just checked Floatplane. WAN Show hosted there for the first time. Well shave my bits and call me Sally, I just proved myself wrong!
  10. Thanks for that, but I did find the link. My point is that if it has to be hunted down because it's not listed on the channel, that's a problem. And I think it's happening to other channels too. YouTube needs to fix their shit. This could cost creators views.
  11. No it doesn't, you don't have the latest there. The latest is from yesterday, titled "All Pro Gamers are Bots! - WAN Show May 31, 2019"
  12. Yeah, that's no good at all for those of us wanting to watch yesterdays WAN Show. Luckily I had it in my notifications history so I still had a workaround. So, how about WAN Show hosted on Floatplane already, guys? Huh? HUH?? Yeah, I know, bandwidth, long-form video, blah blah.
  13. For some reason, when I navigate to "Videos" on the LTT YouTube channel, the latest WAN Show just ins't there. Is YouTube doing something dumb again? Wouldn't surprise me. Look, screenshot. PROOF! Anyone else seeing the same, or is it just me?
  14. And unfortunately, despite all the efforts by the left to exercise "inclusion", the result is fascist dictatorship. If free speech is only acceptable to you when people agree with you, then you're not in favor of free speech. You have to fight for your opponents right to free speech too. As long as nothing illegal is being said or promoted, it shouldn't get removed from any platform. When you ban people from a platform in order to protect peoples feelings, you end up down a rabbit hole. There's a girl who had to be protected in her university against sauce on food. SAUCE ON FOOD. SERIOUSLY. I hate to be the guy that says "toughen up", but people like this leave me no choice.
