Punkt: A minimalist Android for the paranoid

Re: IP52

I bought the 8110 4G recently, screen scratched on the day of purchase. Must be all the diamonds (pocket grit, plastic screen) in my pocket?

Wish I'd seen the Cat before I impulse bought.

4G hotspot works abroad without buying extra tethering, so saving me a fiver a day already.

Removable battery on the 8110 might be good if I could find replacements, over the Cat, but that has 600 extra mahs.

Google kills AdWords!

Someone should tell Google Ads that they are a different company these days to Waymo... I guess they use the same designer...

Android devs prepare to hit pause on ads amid Google GDPR chaos

Wet fart

So as with other regs of this nature its complete unpolicability and likely nonenforcability will mean no one will know what to do, when to do it, and why.

Whilst its panic stations of the next fortnight, when's the first nonconformist going to be in the dock? 5 years?

Is the information commissioner really going to be able to enforce any of this?

I've read people likening this to kitchen hygene and so on, but its really just a confusion inducing mush.

Google are just riding it out until everyone realises GDPR has no teeth.
