Welcome to the dystopia world. In this world, the cheaper and "dumber" your tech is, the more freedom you actually have so you don't have to worry about what problems other people have.
If your phone does not have a GPS module, then you don't have to worry about it, however you will have to worry if you want to locate yourself when you are in a unknown are that you don't recognize. >>8452
If the hardware way is not the way to get rid of then how would you get rid of it? This is a bit similar question when it comes to Intel ME and Libreboot. I mean get a new kernel with no support for the GPS module or something like that. In a android phone, would this mean that you have to get root access and then remove some of the files that are needed to operate the GPS?>>8515>You also can try to cheat and make some dummy software that would give fake coordinates
I believe this would be somewhat good solution because in android developer tools, you can enable fake locations. There should also be some software for that because of the Pokemon GO nonsense where people would start to cheat by giving false coordinates to the app so they would get advantage over other players.>But it is all meaningless shit, mate. You can be tracked by cellular network. It isn't very precise, but working. You also can be tracked by wifi, even if it is your wifi - some people and organizations do wifi maps in cities.
This is certainly true, thanks to the latest wikileaks info on windows machine and how they can give your location up when you use wlan access point. This then begs the question, how can you access the internet without compromising your location? Using a Linux machine that then router the internet further on down the machines while blocking ports that might be used malicious and stuff like that.>You have nowhere to run. It is the end.
If only I could think of a counter argument for that. Go offline and use computers offline while only accessing internet public wlan? Or cracking neighbours access point to be anonymous? >>8530
Stallman was right.
I really have to learn to use RS232 and Parallel port. You guys better start stockpile on thinkpads and then libreboot them or buy old enough machine with no features such as Intel ME/AMT or anything else actually.
This really is the end when you can't tell what EU is up to. I wonder when free speech becomes a joke.
