The Quest for a Dumber Phone

quote [ The desire to unplug has made way for an entire market, selling focus and technological detachment. R/dumbphone and the rise of low-tech phones are part of a wider phenomenon that includes the use of site blockers, lock boxes for your phone, and other online movements like no surf. ]

This focuses very much on the zen/minimalism/addiction aspect and less on (enviromental) costs or the fact that some tasks might be better suited for a PC – like being at work.

It links to Dumphonefinder – pretty helpful.

‘Robin Hood’ Strikes In France

quote [ France has been roiled by protests over President Emmanuel Macron’s proposal to raise the retirement age. On both January 19 and 31, over a million people across the country took part in demonstrations, and last week, workers with the CGT union took a more radical approach: they provided free energy as part of so-called “Robin Hood” operations. Many members of the CGT, one of France’s largest labor unions, work in key energy sectors like oil refineries and power grids. In workers’ assemblies in Paris, Marseilles, Lille, and other cities, they unanimously decided to provide free energy for low-income households, hospitals, schools, and other public buildings and services. Workers also cut power for several hours to the office of a lawmaker from Macron’s party, disabled speed cameras, and manipulated electricity and gas meters to reduce bills for small business owners. ]

Shit has been getting pretty real in France the past few days. Macron proposed raising the retirement age and so the people have demanded it be lowered.😂😂😂

Why more people are supporting the retirement strikes in France

This 'professional' end-of-the-world simulator is now available on Steam

quote [ Nuclear War Simulator is a bit like Kerbal Space Program, only it's about nuclear annihilation and not technically a game. ]

Should we really support monetising such a subject?
