A friend in the Seattle protest community went to work for the city to help them improve police accountability.

She worked AND succeeded at lobbying the city to pass a city law requiring research into police shootings and how they affect families.

The city hired her to be part of this new workgroup but never paid her EVEN though the budget was allocated!

Tired of watching cops brutalize protesters?

You know what's even worse? Until a court ruling PROVING the cops at fault it's unlikely anyone's medical bills will be paid for by the government.

What if I told you a Black organizer already passed a law to fix this?

New app update: a few fixes and small improvements plus, finally, image descriptions, including text recognition!
I'll add automatic AI image captioning if this post gets enough traction.
(I'll probably add it anyways so don't feel obligated to boost 😆).

Krebstherapien sind gut und wichtig. Aber, weshalb die App »Krebs Therapie Assistent Mika« unmittelbar nach dem Start personenbezogene Daten (Google-Advertising-ID) übermittelt, ist fraglich. Die Einwilligung dazu wird erst später beim Consent-Banner abgefragt. Leider zu spät.

Arbeitsminister Heil plant Bürgergeld per App

In Zukunft soll es möglich sein, das Bürgergeld per App zu beantragen. Das Konzept ist Teil einer Digitalisierungsstrategie von Arbeitsminister Heil. Die Idee: Prozesse vereinfachen und die Behörden entlasten.

Hello all, I'm trying something new to get a better vision of users, what you like in the app, what you don't like and miss.

(yes, it's a survey 😶)

You can find it here: https://forms.gle/QbVhVQDnuShfvhUB9

Since it's the first time I'm doing this exercise, don't hesitate to give me any feedback about the process by itself!

Also, boosting for visibility will be highly appreciated. 🙂

The foundational tenet of "the Cult of Mac" is that buying products from a $3t company makes you a member of an oppressed ethnic minority and therefore every criticism of that corporation is an ethnic slur:

    Among the apps that Apple also refuses to allow on Ios is third-party browsers. Every Iphone browser is just a reskinned version of Apple's Safari, running on the same antiquated, insecure Webkit browser engine. The fact that Webkit is incomplete and outdated is a feature, not a bug, because it lets Apple block web apps - apps delivered via browsers, rather than app stores:

    Das geplante Tutorial zu für das erste Quartal 2024 ist auf unbestimmte Zeit verschoben. Auch Version 0.5.5c ist mir persönlich noch zu buggy bzw. es treten seltsame Situationen/Schwierigkeiten im Betrieb auf. Da muss noch etwas Fleiß und Arbeit reinfließen, bevor ich dazu ein Tutorial erstelle.

Wo genau, soll also da ein Problem liegen, wenn es einer der größten Autohersteller weltweit es bereits seit langer Zeit macht?

    Another characteristically brilliant Kashmir Hill story for The New York Times reveals another characteristically terrible fact about modern life: your car secretly records fine-grained telemetry about your driving and sells it to data-brokers, who sell it to insurers, who use it as a pretext to gouge you on premiums:

    Eliminating competition doesn't just deprive customers of alternatives, it also empowers corporations. Liberated from "wasteful competition," companies in concentrated industries can extract massive profits. Think of how both Apple and Google have "competitively" arrived at the same 30% app tax on app sales and transactions, a rate that's more than 1,000% higher than the transaction fees extracted by the (bloated, price-gouging) credit-card sector:

    Wow, this looks really cool!! @phanpy has a new feature called that I only found just now. It shows a really nice-looking overview over the last hours in your timeline. You can filter by original posts, boosts, followed hashtags etc.

    And it even gives you the most mentioned links in that time period. I'm pretty sure, that this will now become my go-to feature in the morning to get up to speed.
    You can try it out in your browser.

    The Alber e-motion M25 power wheelchair paywalls much of its utility through its app.

    Upgrading your phone shouldn't cause you to lose functions.

    Had you paid for these options before?

    Did they paywall them when introducing a new version?
