  1. Hello, what do you think of the ubuntu touch phone? I would like to free myself from google / USA and I would like to give up android.

  2. By the way, I appreciate that what you do is your own on your website. It doesn't belong to youtube.

  3. I haven't tried Ubuntu Touch. But I don't think you're tired of Android, you're tired of Google
    I'm going to do a tutorial with Android de-googling. But I don't know how many are ready for it. There's a lot to give up.

    You very vaguely mentioned this in the clip: Tethering from a PC CAN ONLY BE DONE IF IT IS CONNECTED Wired (via Ethernet cable), AND NOT via Wireless. A PC CANNOT be used, as a Wireless router, as an Access Point (that is, it cannot be connected to the Internet through its Wireless network card and pass on the Internet, also through its own Wireless network card)!

    And so, nowadays, very few resorts/hotels, etc., still give you cable Internet, first of all because most of the old buildings were not /prepared/wired for the Internet, and secondly, because the buildings we are equipped - thanks to technological advances - with ONLY Wirelss connections, with Access Points/MESHs, for a wide and complete coverage.

    Cristi, let's hack the wireless better, some news if you have and you know it's a hot topic. Leave the android as it is good as it is with google if you don't update it (you also keep a lot of battery plus everything runs smoothly)
