Yeah, I guess I could've, but I was looking for something to use on Android. I could've emphasized on that better, thank you.

I am genuinely horrified to see how much data google collected from me

I created a google takeout and in that zip file I found some files containing a ton of data about me. It has logged every single page I visited while using the google search engine and chrome browser. It even logged every single time I opened an app on my old android phone. It even has VOICE RECORDINGS of me and a log of every...

I just deleted my google account. Bye YouTube comments.

You could create an Odysee channel perhaps, and try to migrate there. Then you're supporting competition.

I found a video with the song in it, ofc people always talk over it and never link the song. It's the first song that instantly plays. Maybe you know the name. https://youtu.be/RKJsMNU54UM&t=0

I found a video with the song in it, it plays as the video starts. I'm not good at describing but if you hear it, you'll know what I'm talking about, here: https://youtu.be/RKJsMNU54UM&t=0

Its the first song that plays in this video. https://youtu.be/RKJsMNU54UM&t=0 I couldn't Shazam it or anything, you probably know it though.

Honestly I'm just quitting social media. It got to a point where I just go on to learn about things, not to laugh at something stupid or post about how I'm feeling. You don't need 4+ social media accounts at that point.

I have a pixel 6a and it works great. However, I did run GrapheneOS shortly after I got it, so that may be why. I don't use the Stock OS.

So google might be trying to get you to buy the newest phone? I know apple likes to slow down their old phones so people upgrade, maybe Google does the same.

I was looking for something that I'm confident doesn't spy at the hardware level.

I used Thinkpads as an example because after the early 2010 ones, they got those weird i7 (I believe) processors and we don't know much of what they do but some speculate they record keystrokes and phone data home.

What PC can you trust has good hardware in privacy? I don't want to buy a PC and run Linux, trying my best, and the thing spies at the hardware level.

On Android, Squaker still currently works after the latest update. You can view tweets and profiles but not replies. The guy running it is really working overtime for us.

You could try to jailbreak but honestly you're better off not having an iPhone

Yk, I'll play devils advocate and say that I see the good in this. People with disabilities will finally be able to do things.

But, governments will definitely love this. And the proprietary technology would definitely be spying on people, no surprise there.

I'm really afraid it could become a mandate to get in the future (gotta learn how to survive in the woods.)

So overall, it has good potential but would definitely be used for harm. I think it's a net negative.
