@mikwee:matrix.orgmikweeFor some reason, this image viewer needs to know your location07:03:46
@mikwee:matrix.orgmikweeQuite essential information indeed07:04:29
@mikwee:matrix.orgmikweeWell, at least they use Matomo instead of Google Analytics07:05:33
@makingaliasesisannoying:matrix.orgmakingaliasesisannoyingdoes it do anything with metadata?07:08:11
@makingaliasesisannoying:matrix.orgmakingaliasesisannoyinglike adding information to pictures?07:09:27
@makingaliasesisannoying:matrix.orgmakingaliasesisannoying * like adding information to pictures?07:09:33
@mikwee:matrix.orgmikweeNo, but still, why does an image viewer need my location?07:11:34
@zadak:privacytools.ioMaster BaiterSo they can adjust the screen brightness depending on the time and your position, obviously 07:25:46

Anyone got a Pinephone or Pinetab yet? I'm tempted, but I'm put off by there being no support for Android apps. I'm currently happy with LineageOS, but I'd love to oneday move to a pure GNU/Linux phone.
Anbox on Ubuntu Touch, and Sailfish OS also has its own thing

@gudishvibes:privacytools.io🍴👨 (Forkman)I'm not one to say they're good for daily use, though08:24:44
@nvidia_corp:matrix.orgnvidia_corpHow on earth they managed this? https://www.gizmochina.com/2020/10/22/huawei-unveils-the-kirin-9000-chipset-its-first-5g-integrated-5nm-soc/08:38:22
@nvidia_corp:matrix.orgnvidia_corpIs TSMC still working with Huawei?08:39:19
@pathman2002:privacytools.ioblippity bloopyif you can't install custom ROMs on it, dont buy it08:39:24
@braedon:matrix.orgBraedon joined the room.08:40:38
@nvidia_corp:matrix.orgnvidia_corpAh this make sense. https://meterpreter.org/tsmc-confirms-that-it-will-no-longer-produce-kirin-9000-chips/08:41:23
@nvidia_corp:matrix.orgnvidia_corpThey were only able to supply 9 million chips before the restrictions came in. 08:41:49
@makingaliasesisannoying:matrix.orgmakingaliasesisannoying"only"08:42:04
@nvidia_corp:matrix.orgnvidia_corpHuawei is doing some good work with the chips. USA is playing an unfair game by not letting them work with TSMC.08:42:49

"only"
Too less for China. Population is over 1 billion.
08:43:10
@makingaliasesisannoying:matrix.orgmakingaliasesisannoyingwell true08:43:22
@pathman2002:privacytools.ioblippity bloopyWill Huawei use Allwinner SoC's now?08:45:13
@nvidia_corp:matrix.orgnvidia_corpI think there will be no major performance gap between Snapdragon 875+, Kirin 9000, A14x and Exynos 2100. I guess it will all come down to optimizations now. 08:45:32
@nvidia_corp:matrix.orgnvidia_corp I really don't know. Last I heard SMIC in China got tax benefits and is trying to scale up the production. It won't be of the level of TSMC but can help China in the long term to reduce the dependency on Taiwan. 08:46:29
@nvidia_corp:matrix.orgnvidia_corpMediatek Dimensity also shown some hefty performance improvements. 08:47:36
@nvidia_corp:matrix.orgnvidia_corpI think security wise. Apple Silicon > Qualcomm Snapdragon > Samsung Exynos > Huawei Kirin > Mediatek Dimensity 08:48:32

@nvidia_corp:matrix.orgnvidia_corpUSA is also trying to block SMIC's growth and progress. Suppliers need to consult USA government before supplying to SMIC.08:50:51
