Root access for a tractor - I have to admit, I wasn't quite aware that modern tractors are something like rolling smartphones in the field.

My little tech #newsletter "Undisruptable Technology" is back from the summer break. As usual, there are 10+ links to texts around digital disruptions and analog outlandishness that I enjoyed in the past days.
With this issue 187, my little tech newsletter "Undisruptable Technology" says goodbye to a short summer break. But before that, a few important questions will be answered: Is Foxconn becoming an automaker? How does #disinformation work? Is Alexa becoming a voice impersonator? And does and Facebook eavesdrop? Who's building the #metaverse? And what is Pinterest building? Why is everyone suddenly talking about Kate Bush?
Since I bought my Pixel 6 I had trouble: random reboots, lagging, forced close of apps which did not open again until I restart the phone.
Well, when I got my phone I used the Android option to use my backup - but it seems that this is not the best idea when switching from another OEM to Pixel. So I followed the advice I found in several online forums and did a factory reset and installed everything I need again by hand.
So after 48 hours it seems I got a totally new phone.
I really like it when people start to take things seriously.

@sundogplanets I learned Basic, Pascal, Modula 2, Assembler and C and now I mostly use Python and sometimes a little bit of Java. But I really regret never using Cobol and Fortran... 🙃
