What’s most exciting to me about the PinePhone is that we now have a piece of hardware on which to experiment with new and interesting mobile O/S’s without the overhead of assembling all the parts or reverse engineering a bunch of binary blobs.

Not that I don’t enjoy those things, but it makes hacking like this accessible to a much wider audience.

@requiem it's most interesting to me from the idea that I should be able to fully disable to GPS, microphones, and camera should I desire.

@requiem fuck yeah I'm even more on board.

Physical kill switches for tracking and surveillance devices are a big bonus
