6c783128 562 <h1>Does the gift you're giving your loved ones put someone else in control?</h1>
a4882310 563<p>The COVID-19 pandemic has made us more reliant on technology than
6c783128 564ever, which is a compelling reason to think carefully about the
0e5b4e75
GF
565choices we're making during the gift-giving season. Is that "smart
566assistant" smart enough to respect your friend or family member's
567freedom? Do new gaming consoles like the PlayStation 5 restrict more
568than they entertain? Does that shiny gadget come at a cost much higher
569than its price tag?</p>
570 <p>When we allow <a href="https://gnu.org/proprietary">proprietary software</a> created by Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, Google, and countless other companies to handle our basic computing tasks, we put an enormous amount of power in their hands, power which they constantly exploit. It's only through using <a href="https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html">free software</a>, and <a href="https://ryf.fsf.org">devices running free software</a>, that we can seize this power back.</p>

GF
571 <h4>Freedom is the gift that keeps on giving</h4>
572<p>Letting your loved ones know that
573you respect their privacy and freedom too much to cave in for the
574newest Apple or Google device is a great gift in itself, and one that
575 you can feel good about.</p>

668because the company has publicly committed to doing the right things

671<p>Considering

1221<p>In the last year, many people have unfortunately become more dependent on streaming media. But it's important to remember how streaming services can deprive you of important rights. "Dis-services" like Disney+ and Netflix mandate the use of a hardware-level backdoor called Widevine, giving them permanent access into deep components of your machine.</p>
1222<p>Widevine prohibits these services from running on many older devices, leaving families who can't afford a new computer or a new television out in the cold.</p>
