I see it when I try to subscribe to Pass Plus from the Account page (account.proton.me).

I was looking at Proton plans, and I noticed that the Proton Pass Plus plan costs almost double on the 24-month plan compared to the 12-month one. 1 month: USD$4.99 12 months: USD$1.99 24 months: USD$2.99 The Pass Plus plan is the only one that gets more expensive at 24 months. Why is that?

You don't need to use a google account at all, you can just use any IMAP account through Easy Switch in the settings. (It even works with empty email accounts for some reason too)

Apple seems to be losing my respect for their software each year...

Motorola seems good, I'll check it out.

[-] tester1121 1 points 4 days ago

Motorola seems to be a good choice for me, then.

Are they good without LineageOS? I have already said that I don’t want to deal with custom bootloaders/systems.

Can't you remove Netflix on CCwGTv? The Play Store let me, and it doesn't seem to reinstall.

I have a friend that uses a Redmi phone, and the ad situation is horrible. You have to manually go into the settings for each app and disable ads, and some apps only disable them for 30 days.

What would be some examples of Samsung bloat? Are there ads in those apps?
Side note: What is the C*****e company?

I can't use an iPhone because no sideloading, no filesystem access, you need iTunes to upload music (really?), etc.
(I'm asking in an Android community because I want an Android phone, not an iPhone.)

Is Apple that bad nowadays that they need News ads in a weather app? I thought Apple was the almost ad-free and privacy-focused company.

I really can't tell if this is a joke or not (I'm not mad), but don't third-party app stores have almost all of the features as of the Play Store? F-Droid has the ability to automatically update apps silently, I think.

I'm using a Pixel 6 Pro right now, and I'm looking around to see if there are any good phones. However, I have heard that there are ads in the newer flagship phones (Samsung, Xiaomi). I am willing to spend around USD$750 on a new phone, but I just don't want any crazy ads or preinstalled apps like Facebook. Are there phones that don't suck nowadays? I can buy a phone that is sold in the US, Canada, or EU.

(I don't want to go through menus to disable ads (Xiaomi), and I'm currently looking at phones other than the Pixel lineup to see if there's a better option for me)
(I also don't want to mess around with custom bootloaders/systems, I rely on Google services way too much)

EDIT: If it wasn't clear enough, I am not looking for things like GrapheneOS or LineageOS or others, I am looking for a phone and judging based on the stock system on it.

I have a document, and I like the way Wikipedia formats references: with numbers in square brackets (ex: [4]). I have found how to enable them to show up as such in the document, but the bibliography panel in the document doesn't show the numbers. How do I make the square bracket tags show up in the bibliography section in a document?

I am currently using EndeavourOS, but am annoyed by the constant daily updates of 1GB and pacman not installing important dependencies automatically (ex: spell checker for document editor). I like the way Fedora works: you update whenever, important dependencies are downloaded automatically, and packages are recent-ish, but I don't like that it takes forever to run dnf. I don't want to use Manjaro (apparently it breaks quickly?), and the distro needs to support KDE. I know about Flatpak, but I don't want to download 1GB of data for each app. Are there any good options?

(Yes, I can probably deal with Fedora, but dnf is slower than apt, and I don't want to deal with external repositories for non-free software.)

EDIT: I do not want to tweak or edit configuration files, I just need something that has up to date packages and "just works".

I was looking at some new phones recently and phones made in Asia (Xiaomi, Huawei, Samsung) seem to have the same design to me. They all seem to have lots of padding on UI elements, seem to use the same fonts, and seem to resemble a shared design language. They seem to look different from something like stock Android or a Pixel. Is there a reason for this, or am I just crazy?

Edit: The settings app seems almost the same in those phones (I think), for example.

I don't like that the KDE file transfer progress does not take in account the transfer from RAM to disk, and it only takes into account disk to RAM. I don't want to wait for the "Don't eject yet" message to disappear, because it sometimes stays too long, and I get worried if there could be an issue with KDE. How do I make:

  1. KDE/Dolphin take into account RAM to disk in progress, or
  2. Make KDE/Dolphin send files straight to disk, without sending to RAM.

I like carrying around one USBC to C cable for my devices, but I don't want to carry around a USBC to A cable for other ports. Is there a dongle that takes a USBC cable and converts one end into USBA? I need it to support at least 15W.

I used to use iOS, and there was a great emulator called "Delta". It was open source and free, and it was so easy to add games to it's library. Is there such an app for Android? I would very much like it if the app was open source and free.

I want to set up a VPN that uses the client's IP when sending data out of the VPN server. I am able to use either OpenVPN (open-source edition), or Wireguard.

I was recently listening to music while in a conference call with my headphones, and I noticed that they changed to a "hands-free mode" and the music that I was listening to degraded to something that sounded like elevator music. Is there a way to apply this to any song that I have a file for?

What is the difference between a room id of !example391:server.com and #example:server.com for a user at server2.com? Is there also a way to assign an internal address starting with a #? Everytime I try to make it internal only, it becomes external at the same time. I also noticed that Element allows me to assign custom room addresses from different servers, how would that be possible?

I have Element open in my browser, and the cross-signing is active and Key Backup works. However, I have lost my security key, and I want to have a copy of it just in case. Is there a way to get it back?
