US legal question 

Before I go rattling the cages of actual law type people, I want to run it by folk here.

Are the laws requiring cell carriers to unlock their devices still in effect, or did they get overturned?

I've got a Moto X2 that has a special carrier specific version of Android 5.0, but it's been abandoned by the carrier. They won't even talk to me anymore. Moto/Lenovo just says my device "is not eligible for unlocking".

Stock X2s can run Android 6.0, and Lineage might go newer.

Any recommendations for a free, lightweight, offline html+css(+possibly small amounts of js) editor app with syntax highlighting and instant preview for working on a simple static personal website? Can be for Linux or Windows.

(Please note that I'm not asking for a static site generator like Hugo or a generic text/code editor like Sublime.)

I didn't know Clive Sinclair.

I do know what he accomplished.

He broke the cost barrier to entry to a new world. For $99 in 1981 you could have a personal computer kit that allowed you to write code in BASIC... for $149 you could buy the finished computer. This connected to a TV, and a casette deck, and you had not just a learning platform, but one with what would become THE hacker aesthetic.

You could have a $1300 Apple, or this... frankly, looking back... i'm glad I couldn't afford the Apple... this was so much better.

1.5 million of the ZX81 were sold. I had one.

The more hackers I speak to sinceClive's passing, the more I realize how many hackers were born because of his computers. Clive's devices launched thousands of us, and changed the whole world.

I think Clive knew how important those little black boxes with the membrane keyboards were, but I don't know that he knew how big the ripples would be.

My first computer, and people like Weld Pond's too... the L0pht existed because of Sinclair's machine... hackers.town as well.

From there, the impacts are well documented...

Rest well Sir, you earned it. We'll aspire to titanic things too, and take it from here.

This man and my father worked together, perhaps unknowingly, to shape a phenomenal lifepath for me. I recognize you Clive. You are the man who launched a thousand hackers, and in doing so grandfathered entire new worlds for us all. The future is more hopeful because of you.

Facebook keeps researching its own harms — and burying the findings. A series of leaked internal reports shows Facebook knows far more than it lets on. That’s by design.
