Some good news for a change. Bee population recovering due to regenerative farming.

Linux users are wizards: they do more work for the same functions, but in exchange they get more flexibility and power.
Windows users are sorcerer: they get innate support and intuitive functions, but not nearly as many tricks as the wizards.
Mac users are warlocks: they bonded their souls to a malevolent power that doesn't actually care about them.
Simjacker – abusing the [email protected] Browser to track phones:
– it requires the [email protected] Browser on the targeted phone, and a mobile operator allowing special SMS
– many details are missing
– mobile operators can remotely uninstall [email protected] Browser; so this perfectly shows that you can't "take back control" of your phone by just installing some LineageOS on it
If you haven't heard of KaiOS before, you probably think Firefox OS is entirely dead. But actually, as a fork of B2G, KaiOS has silently grown to a user base of more than 100 million people on devices from more than 10 manufacturers, making it the third most-popular mobile OS after Android and iOS now.

White Nationalism, Canada
This one's rich. A new white nationalist party who wants to run in the upcoming federal election submitted paperwork including names and addresses of 250 supporters. Only trouble is, once they submitted they realized that Elections Canada is now required to make that list public, and they REALLY don't want people to know who's supporting white nationalism. So it's panic time in Nazi Town.
