"Researchers in data-intensive fields (particularly in the life sciences) need better computer skills. Initiatives such as Software Carpentry offer workshops to researchers, but universities should also focus more on giving undergraduates the advanced analytical skills they will need."

1. There is no reason to do that other than force you to buy new hardware when Samsung thinks your phone is too old
2. This just produces more e-waste
3. If the customer pays for a device, they should own it and be able to use it as they wish in no fear of arbitary bricking of the device when the manufacturer decides
4. If there exist an reason which actually can make the device less secure from this unlock - please let me know. Otherwise I say there are none
My conclusion is that #avoidSamsung
Whoa! Samsung is permanently breaking the camera "for safety reasons" when you unlock the bootloader:

I've been using snapchat for about a year now (snap score over 10k btw) and it surprised me how many friends use it as their main messaging app.

Boosts much appreciated 🚀

Meanwhile a company profits from longer attention time and increased ad revenue caused by their algorithm promoting controversial stuff and influencing opinions. I wonder when will their users realize they are living in a false information bubble. And most importantly why do people still proudly promote Facebook?

🚨🚨 Apple says to "protect children," they're updating every iPhone to continuously compare your photos and cloud storage against a secret blacklist. If it finds a hit, they call the cops.
iOS will also tell your parents if you view a nude in iMessage.
Imagine working at Apple with a job title: ”Child sexual abuse verifier”
I do not believe that this kind of ”shoot everyone and catch few” is a good strategy for ending sexual abuse of children - this just compromizes every device, because hash based pattern matching isn’t perfect
Apple prepares ”a feature” which will scan contents of an Apple device and report illegal media to authorities and there will be human reviewing all the false positives:
