I used to not have an opinion on #TikTok. I'm old and never bothered to look at it myself. Then my youngest daughter found it and fell in love with it. Now, I quite literally hate TikTok. It's like someone took the worst parts of #Youtube and made a new app out of just that garbage.

Sometimes ignorance of manufacturers is astonishing, and being Linux user you have to fight through that ignorance every day. So I am glad to announce that I completed quest of connecting those headphones to my laptop. Those won't pair, for no reason, so as a work around I had to trust that device in bluetoothctl then I removed device from BT setting and then :) I was finally able to pair.

Security is a complex exercise, and there could not be any rush in protecting sensitive data. Aside of fact that vaccine passports are infringement on people freedom, governments should have asked themselves is this information that can be handled by startup.

Cloud providers came together with set of Trusted Cloud Principles. You may ask what's wrong with this, looks like really nice initiative. However if you look closer, it's skewed towards cloud providers ability to access/store your data.
