"Can I fully control my Android phone?": No, you can't.

– in our tests, AFWall+ leaked DNS queries of all apps on the device (including blocked apps), making it easy to determine apps installed on the phone
– updating Android doesn't imply that firmware vulnerabilities get fixed
– apps from F-Droid/Play Store etc. can still leak personal data as shown in our /e/ article
– besides, your proprietary baseband processor, GPS, sensors etc. remain out of control

In the US they are looking for "solutions" that opens encrypted data to law enforcement. A Backdoor for the "good guys" only is impossible. Encryption must remain strong and unbreakable, here's why: tutanota.com/blog/posts/why-a-

Just met with @SundarPichai, President of @Google, who is obviously doing quite well. He stated strongly that he is totally committed to the U.S. Military, not the Chinese Military....

Skid Row forging voter registration forms in California (Same place tainted blood was purchased in exchange for alcohol vouchers, made famous by The Doors.)

This problem could be solved with open source software, an API to determine eligibility, and a public blockchain to record/audit the results.

And my 'live usb' is super outdated :-(

Ultimately still control the app stores, BUT the market is growing, forks are growing, the is behind the movement off , and with Vue.js your code supposedly works on the free and open Internet too, for your enjoyment, so the downside of developing is minimal, compared to before where mobile had its neck in a Darth Vader "app store" chokehold.

Also Jen Looper suggests the license is still questionable... (As far as Facebook still having some legal tentacles creeping inside all React Native apps? Yuck!) Vue.js definitely has more street cred in that regard. Like HTML5 was the nail in the coffin for Adobe Flash, I can see unencumbered pulling mindshare from its Google/Facebook-backed competitors.

Watched demo last night, looks cool. Anyone tried it? Looks like it will generate APKs with no icky 3rd party (aka "Expo") snooping your source code. Realtime preview of changes seems like it will speed development immensely. And reuse the same code for native mobile and web?! Seems like an unstoppable combination of features. Top on my list of things to learn/try, although it's still so learning curve should be minimal.
