Iceland’s Banned TV Christmas Advert... Say hello to Rang-tan. youtube.com/watch?v=JdpspllWI2 via @wallabagapp

Lately, many people that I truly respect have answered to the ' #google product or #apple customer ' question by switching to iOS.

It makes some sense to choose the platform of a customer-oriented company instead of the tracking-oriented one's, cos you need here and now a smartphone that just works.

But only a #foss platform can give back to the users the control of their devices.

Let's not fall into the "lesser of two evils" trap. There are foss mobile initiatives out there. And they need our support.

So, one of France's officially listed colonies, New Caledonia east of Australia, voted with a narrow margin (56.4%) to remain a subject of the colonial overlord.

Hardly surprising unfortunately, as there was no direct no-strings-attached compensation for centuries of impoverishing exploitation that would make independence fair and viable but it would only lead to the empire cutting off its current yearly "subsidies" (bribe) of $1.5 billion... and the population transfer to the colony has lead to only 39.1% being indigenous now.

By carrot, trick and stick, France made colonialism stick.
