Today we flashed another two #laptops with #coreboot in our #workshop at @daslabor during our spring(); break; event. πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’» For the first time we had a non-Thinkpad device: a HP #EliteBook 2570p. There were still #blobs for the EC to be extracted though. Thanks to all participants!

We're getting closer to #opensource #firmware. πŸ™‚

β€œIf your IoT device secretly contained a microphone, which was previously undocumented, would you be happy when the device maker announced an over-the-air update that can enable the microphone for virtual assistant voice functionality? That’s what happened with the security alarm system Nest Secure.”

but seriously, somewhere between 2000 and 2019 the IT industry seamlessly transitioned from

"we provide precision engineering tools, your data is yours, you should not need to trust us or anyone, mathematics is your guarantee, crypto 4 ever. "
