555 <h1>Don't give your loved ones gifts that stand in the way of their freedom</h1>
556 <p>The headlines are filled with stories of "Big Tech" abuses, using the
557 tight control they have over their devices and platforms to keep us
558 powerless and dependent on them. There's no time at which this is more
559 evident than in the holiday season, when they marshal all of the
560 advertising at their disposal to sell us things that we don't need --
561 and worse, products that don't respect our basic freedoms.</p>
562 <h4>This year, choose freedom</h4>
563 <p>This year, we advise you to end that cycle of forced obsolescence and user exploitation, and opt to try running <a href="https://gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw">free software</a> on a device you already own. If you're unlucky enough to get a gift that doesn't respect your freedom, you can still <a href="https://h-node.org">help others avoid it</a> by documenting its ethical pitfalls.</p>
564 <p>Let your loved ones know that you respect their freedom and privacy
565 too much to cave for the newest Apple, Amazon, or Google device, and
566 give them the one gift that keeps on giving: freedom.</p>

649 <p><strong>Our advice:</strong> There's currently no cell phone on the market that's fully compatible with user freedom, given the presence of nonfree software in iOS and Android. There are promising projects like PinePhone and the Librem 5 that seek to run GNU/Linux on smartphone hardware, but even these aren't perfect. What makes matters worse is that all smartphones currently run a separate, nonfree OS commonly referred to as the "mobile baseband," which is responsible for most of the device's communications.</p>
650 <p>If you're at all able to, and if you find your hardware is compatible with it, we recommend pairing the <strong>Replicant</strong> distribution of Android with the <a href="https://f-droid.org">F-Droid</a> app repository. Replicant is the bottom line when it comes to mobile OSes that respect their user's freedom, and is a project <a href="https://www.fsf.org/working-together/fund">fiscally sponsored by the FSF.</a></p>

659 <li>
660 Replicant is a <a href="https://gnu.org/free-sw">fully free</a> distribution of the Android operating system. The project has a staunch policy of including only free software and firmware.
661 </li>
662 <li>
663 Even if your phone doesn't support Replicant, you can still use the <a href="https://f-droid.org">F-Droid</a> repository on your Android phone. F-Droid has hundreds of applications that are ready to install, including Syncthing, Tor, Minetest, and Termux.

671 It's not just Siri that's creepy: all Apple devices contain software that's hostile to users. Although they claim to be concerned about user privacy, they don't hesitate to <a href="https://www.gnu.org/proprietary/malware-apple.html#surveillance">put their users under surveillance</a>.
672 </li>
673 <li>
674 Apple prevents you from installing third-party free software on your own phone, and they use this control to censor apps that compete with or subvert Apple's profits.

1125 <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>
1126 <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>
