Sovcit fucking over their kid.
  • The odds of it being a literal newborn yet to be issued a birth certificate are minuscule compared to the odds of sovcits just doing the sovcit shit. "Our youngest" can mean almost any age, probably up to 10yo if I were to guess.

  • Absolutely deranged
  • Yes, the Galaxy S5 was the only Samsung flagship using the micro USB 3.0 port. They backpedaled to micro USB 2.0 in S6 and S7, and then migrated to USB-C in S8. I'm not sure about the Note series.

  • Absolutely deranged
  • Unlikely, the A plugs are for the host devices while the B plugs are for peripherals. It got blurred with smartphones (see: USB-OTG) but in general the host devices were big enough to have full-sized USB ports, so the smaller USB-Bs are extremely rare.

  • Absolutely deranged
  • The micro USB most of us know already is a USB-B. Each cable before USB-C had USB-A on one side and USB-B on the other. The square-like one used for printers is a full-sized USB-B, as opposed to the one used in phones (micro USB-B).

  • Signal under fire for storing encryption keys in plaintext
  • Either multiple different keychains or even you can have no keychain-like application in your system at all.

    The WiFi passwords are usually stored in /etc/NetworkManager as plain files. Granted, they are not accessible directly by non-root users as they are being managed by the NetworkManager daemon, but there is nothing generic for such a thing. Signal rolling a similar daemon for itself would be an overkill. The big desktop environments (GNOME, KDE...) usually have their own keychain-like programs that the programs provided by these environments use, but that only solves this problem for the users of these specific environments.

    To me it's perfectly expected the Signal encryption keys are readable by my user account.

  • Signal under fire for storing encryption keys in plaintext
  • There is no single keychain on Linux, and supposedly on Windows too. Signal would need to either support a few dozens of password managers or require a specific one, both options terrible in their own way. This isn't something that can be done without making broad assumptions about the user's system.

  • Bro where the gains go
  • I guess if that's how it works for you, sure. For me it's upvote if funny, nothing if meh and downvote if downright malicious (bigotry, toxic behavior etc.). I don't think I gave out more than 10 downvotes on Lemmy during this whole year. Though I can see how this post might qualify for the "bigotry or toxic" category, but I'm willing to give it a benefit of doubt.

    That being said, if you have a different policy, who am I to judge.
