This is a deep state psy-op to make the public think they haven't been planning this from the very beginning, from before the first "smartphones" (marketing psy-op term) were made available to the public. You think they haven't been working on this for 30 years, at least? Naive.

You know propaganda existed for a lot longer than that.

Well no. I have first hand experience with the introduction of internet to the masses and also the invention of the modern smart phone. I assure you that these things did not happen from some plan from the MIC.

Instead, some geeks thought it would be really cool to do these things. Then, they tried to convince the managers at their corporations to let them build these things. It was like goddamn dragging cave men into the bronze age. Most of this tech we have came about in spite of tremendous resistance from the old-guard techs. The military have the creativity of a brick, so are even further out of the picture. They actually get their cool stuff from universities which they fund by brute force through programs like DARPA. They take, they do not create.

Now, with internet if you will recall, when Microsoft built it into Windows, they were sued multiple times by the Government. They made up all sorts of stupid reasons to prevent internet from happening, the truth was they were afraid of it, of losing control. They were afraid of sites like Voat exposing the truths of their crimes and ineptitude.

These (OP) sorts of attempts at control are johnny come lately attempts at keeping control. I doubt it will work, because they have no creative spark and can only build stupid shit.

Thanks. I watched the video before seeing the story to void prejudice. My conclusion is it's creepy as all fuck.

Welp, time for me to start building my own hardware and blocking google from everything and anything related to me.

If you pull this off, for real, you'll get rich. There is a ton of demand for uncensored hardware. Even leftists like EFF or GNU types would buy it. All sorts of people actually.

It's pretty hard to find an Android alternative.

While there are some alternatives, none are perfect. We need more alternatives built from the ground up to be better morally and ethically. The barrier of entry for producing technology we actually own is insanely high. IMO, Android is the least of our worries, when the entire mobile ecosystem is pozzed from the ground up.

If you really need a cell phone, get a dumb phone, or Purism's 'librem 5' which is at the very least a step in the right direction, as it runs linux, has killswitches, and runs on mostly opensource hardware. Sadly still, I have reservations.

Raspberry pi with a battery, gsm module, microphone, speaker, and touch screen. You'll need to do some very basic programming to set up an interface with the gsm module, but other than that, you pretty much slap it all together like legos.

It'll look pretty retarded, but that's (probably) under $200 of parts for a linux based DIY cell phone.

Don't need one. If you don't trust your phone, don't say anything you wouldn't say in a court of law while in the same room as it. Ideally, stick it in the fridge. Terrible for the battery, but it guarantees you won't have service.

Just get a cheap phone you can root.

Bring it on. It sounds like this fits in with some Fisher-Price UI where people are coddled the whole day. If that appeals to you, then you deserve whatever control they exert.
