Ploopy - 3D printed open-source hardware headphones feature Raspberry Pi RP2040 MCU, TI PCM3060 24-bit DAC - CNX Software
I don't think I've ever written about open-source hardware headphones. But that's precisely what Ploopy offers with an amplifier based on a Raspberry Pi

I have read some news on it a while ago and I still think everything got a bit overblown. I do not remember at this point ( I got bigger stuff to care about RN, like possibly most of us do right now), but was that officer not even actually hired but rather a community contributor instead? Plus, surveillance does not have to be against citizens but could also be against organised crime rings. I do understand that cops can be proverbial bastards (especially in the US and certain developing nations and dictatorships), but are some activists and netizens not overreacting a bit?

And what is your reply* for kind of comment anyway, after your showcase of maturity (/s) when calling something more akin to a potential (massive) PR blunder, “trolling”.

*Your “have it your way” remark.

bootlick away, i expected this from you


And what are you trying to communicate with that?
