I saw boosted onto my timeline a slashdot story being hysterical about "Google adding DRM" to android apps.
First, that's misleading. They are adding digital signatures to them. You know, to help prevent tampering with the files you are installing. Sort of DRM, but I don't see them panicking about Debian using signed .deb files.
Second, the link wasn't to slashdot. It was to federati.net. We're used to mastodon not tracking us. But apparently some GNU Social instances do. 😠
