So I intend to buy my first 'smartphone,' but with a singular intention: I want to use it just for looking up the prices of things on ebay that I see in thrift stores, pawn shops, yard sales, and so on, meaning the only feature I care about is a good web browser, or ebay app. I don't care about cameras, games, whatever else people do with their phones, I just want to use the internet away from home from time to time, as cheaply as feasible

Which also means I'm interested in a good prepaid data thing; most of what I've looked at is "unlimited data" for a monthly fee, but I think it might be better to get a definite amount to be used at my leisure, but then I don't know, so I'd also like advice on that

thank you in advance, brothers

Check if you have Metro PCS stores in your area. They have a free (cheap model) phone promotion going, but you'll have to ask if you qualify, because it's meant for people switching from another provider, and since this is your first smartphone they may not give it to you. Basically, you sign up for the $50/month plan and the phone is free, then after the first month, you can change to any other plan you want, even their cheapest plan, which is $30/month.

I got the Samsung Galaxy On5, which should suit your needs fine. It runs Android version 6.0, and offers a stock web browser as well as Google Chrome (and you should be able to download others from Google Play, if you want.) The screen is very cheaply made and I find myself having to clean it occasionally due to excessive fingerprints and smudges.

The only reason you might need a better phone than that is if you plan to open up a lot of browser tabs, which uses your phone's RAM, and if you run of RAM then the browser will crash.

As a first-time buyer, make sure you check the data coverage map (not the phone coverage map) of the provider you choose to be sure you can get data in the areas you actually plan to be using the phone.

Also, be aware that most providers will advertise an "unlimited" data plan, but there's no such thing as actually unlimited mobile data. Most of the time, somewhere in the fine print, they'll specify that they throttle your connection if you exceed a set limit of data per month, and the throttled speeds are usually so slow that you may as well not even have a data connection at all at that point. You can still buy an unlimited plan if you want, and you'll still get way more data than any limited plan, you just need to be conscious of what the limits are on your unlimited plan so that you don't find out too late that you're out of 4G data for the month.

Downloading photos can be data intensive, so visiting eBay a lot will use up quite a bit of data. If it's important for you to never run out of data, I'd recommend you start with a higher end plan, perhaps even unlimited, then learn how to check data usage on the phone you buy. At the end of the first month, you'…

If he downloads the opera android browser he can just disable loading of images to get around quite a bit of data use. Other browsers can probably too, but opera I know can.

For $60 you can get unlimited LTE data no throttling at MetroPCS
For $80 you can get the exact same plan, albeit 4G not true LTE, on T-Mobile prepaid. Both have unlimited everything. nb cos shillin'

I have an old desktop PC that I built primarily for gaming that's finally kicking the bucket. Some of the parts are older than others, the motherboard and power supply I bought less than a year ago for instance, as well as the RAM. But the processor is fairly old (3 years, no problems), the graphics card generally works fine except at high settings on new games where it starts to artifact, and this piece of shit hard drive is dying.

Basically, I don't play games that much anymore and don't need this weight of computer anymore now that I travel a lot. I'm ready to wipe my hands clean of this thing, but I'm fairly sure no one wants to buy a rig that's halfway on death's door.

My question is this: how best to squeeze some profit out of this thing? Should I list it on craigslist and just be forthwith about the problems it has or try to sell the decent parts individually? Anyone have experience with something similar?

If you just want to be rid of it, remove tor replace the hard drive and sell it on Craigslist. If you want to maximize your money, part it out on ebay and reuse the case if you like it. Also, Sapphire does 2 year warranties so you can probably get the card replaced.

Recently I've been looking for a new VPN. I don't care how much it costs, just something that will give me the most protection and anonymity. I don't need anything bulletproof, necessarily.. but as long as a majority of what I do is concealed, it'll be sufficient.

I've looked into Private Internet Access and TorGuard, but am still unsure of who to go with. Any suggestions?

extensions for installs is but if the final .extension can be executed then it should not be even remotely touched, or at least deleted immediately.

Quicktime, has has issues in the past. it's ongoing. The way it is. Other than that

So I have been thinking about accessing the deep web but I hear you can get hacked pretty easily down there. I know NOTHING about hacking and was wondering what exactly happens when someone gets hacked? For security/privacy measures, I was going to use a Raspberry Pi 3 running a Linux OS for accessing the deep web exclusively...Meaning that I will only use the computer for accessing the deep web exclusively right out of the box. I will never type personal information into the computer from the time I start using it to the time I stop using it. Am I safe-ish? What exactly happens when someone "gets hacked"? I'm not too much of a noob when it comes to how things work with computers/internet, however, I'm a super noob when it comes to security. I know how to use a browser based proxy and a VPN. That's about it.

Also, make sure you disable WebRTC in your browser because this is the most common way your real IP can get leaked through javascript. I would hope the TOR bundle has it disabled by default but just in case...

It definitely relies on javascript to be enabled with a regular browser. However in tor it seems to be disabled by default in some form or another, with javascript enabled as well.

It could be exploited with a VPN. But if one used say noscript correctly I don't think these would be leaked. Unless the exploit is inherent in the mechanism
vpn service uses.

it's not really an exploit or flaw, but it could be used as an exploit.

Another is html canvasing. just x out the popup when you come across these.
Benign but also not necessary.

I will be opening the box that it came in and will IMMEDIATELY start using it to use the deep web and it will serve no other purpose. It will never contain any personal info on it. What could a hacker do to me or take from me in this scenario? I am super curious now.

If one had your IP address they could
possibly use it to exploit your system.
Not very likely.

Do this go to https://www.grc.com/shieldsup
and test to see if certain 'service' ports are open.

If all is greeen you have no service ports open. That would be stealth and would report that there is no computer or working connection at that address.

The people "getting hacked" on the tor network are admins running insecure web servers; it just happens a lot there because a) most of the regulars browsing the tor network have an interest in things like hacking and computer security in general, and b) lots of criminal businesses sitting on large amounts of bitcoins who have zero legal recourse if someone roots their box and robs them and their users blind

Sometimes I am at work at night, finnish my work and boot a linux live distro and use my android to do tethering and use my (uncensored) internet.
I always unplug the eth cable because I don't want them to see some host named Mint or Kali.
I don't know if they can see that the cable was unpluged or just turned off the pc.
What is the safest / untrackable way to run my live Linux at work on free times?

Alot of times office admins will have computers set to boot off a network command for updating or whatever, which tends to be done at night. The admin can be present at or it can be run automatically. If you were to unplug the ethernet cable, even if the computer is off, the admin might still be able to detect that the computer is not connected to the the network under these circumstances.

As far as i know, Kali was designed to be undetectable, i bet with alittle linux widardry and minimal effort, you would be able to configure the boot to be undetectable.

If tethering meaning using your phone for your internet connection? Just get a cheap laptop and use that. Just install the system on a laptop. Don't freak about live cds and all that hype. Yes they can tell if a connection is disrupted as it would be assigned a local Ip when plugged back in, as well when disrupted if that is a semi-routine focus.

A factor to consider depending on the business is possible to have cameras right above workstations, ect. They can be right there and you may not see it even if you tried.

Work from your car?

So if tethering means using your phone as a gateway so-too-speak, get a laptop, an older 1996 one can run some distributions of linux flawlessly if it had like a gig of ram and a 1.4 1.7 Mhz processor.

With a cd slow going. Work from a location that you feel comfortable or shield you work enough so if anything above around is lurking it will not see what you are seeing. Very unlikely scenario, but it does happen in certain businesses corporate scenarios where areas are monitored. Stairwells just as well.

Work from you car where nobody would come up on you without you noticing? Just use you own laptop, a cheap say inspiron 1150, $20 bucks, 3o bucks. Ram is expensive, batteries likely need replaced. Best i can think of now. Do use your own equipment and don't connect to their network
or use it in any unsafe manner.

I just did some lazy research and people couldn't decide whether or not it was a software or hardware switch. If it's a hardware switch then yeah, a little slider piece of plastic is fucking perfect for protecting your card from being written to in case corp IT has an offensive defense system for people that use SD card devices in their computers - which if they did would be unethical and probably breach criminal codes.

Any business corporation has every right to protect their interests. Corporations businesses would have policies against using unapproved devices or unapproved access to certain hardware devices.

Let alone using unapproved software. They have every right to control/monitor any information on any approved and unapproved devices that are introduced to and from their networks..

https://dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices Look up cisco linksys e2500
Kind of the beginning of the DD-WRT project, or mainstay of it.

I got mine from a thrift store for less than $2.50 Maybe $3.00.

Anyway, install flash DD-WRT, don't worry it's almost impossible to screw it up. Hook or connect to an existing router. It takes a slight learning experence and don't expect to get it right 1 2 3 4 5 times.

There is linux specific for firewalls, even an old computer that only has a floppy disk can be used as a hardware router, I guess you could say.

Hardware route, I found a wireless repeater at our thrift store that has some sort of firewall built in. Interesting, didn't think much of it at the time.

Sure, why not. You can hook the DD-WRT router directly to your existing router
and use that as a hub, it has extra ports. or use it wirelessly as a repeater bridge.

Like this, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KE1mr-TXUPo

The repeater bridge is easy, fun. I assume you can do both just as well at the same time without doing anything real special. I have plugged a 24 port hub
in a repeated bridge and it did what it was meant to do. -

But no a network hub can not be flashed that way. Just thrift store a compatible router,
if you don't find one, wireless I assume you may want and make it work. If you don't find one keep checking or ebay a cheap compatible router.

Or craigslist one, ask for one for cheap, somebody will have one and know what you mean by DD-WRT compatible.

I don't think I will ever in my life use wireless headphones for a variety of reasons, but mainly because I don't want bluetooth radiation going into my brain.

There is literally nothing I want less than this phone, and I am the type of faggot that buys the 6 S Plus with max GB.

firstly i will agree that their wireless headphones are dumb because they are very expensive and small and light enough to get lost very easily, however that just means i am smart enough to already recognize apple for what it does. It will absolutely do well in the mainstream markets because stupid people are here and they want to be protected from technology while still appearing cool in this increasingly electronically integrated world.
then i will avoid mocking you but do so mockingly because i actually do have empathy for people that don't know shit about something. I mean nobody can know everything, right? It's just not everybody decides to not know shit about phones or technology in general.
But you can't help it and i can't sit here and blame you. The apple corporation is there for all technological luddites; for an exorbitant premium they will idiot proof your technology and look for ways to help you be a lazy faggot that broadly advertises their brand while making facebook posts with $3000 hardware. Remember ifruits? wasn't that cool? How about that macbook air thing that weighs less than an ant? Oh wait how about the 60 inch all in one pc with the touchscreen that was basically a giant ipad? boy you could facebook from all of them. Also they're "The Best for making music and editing video". Remember that Steve Jobs was a Great Man who was Great.
And it totally works. Hundreds of thousands of you just fling money out of your wallets in a desperate attempt to keep the technology at bay while you still use it to look at porn and write an email. And you look super cool doing it. Expensive shit means you're cool right? Everyone knows expensive shit is a sign of sophistication and responsibility.
So you get exactly what you want, which is this feeling of having futuristic technology that is well worth the premiums you pay - Apple gets exactly what it wants, to take a TON of money away from idiots by becoming the very best in enabling stupid people to embrace technology that they do not understand - and serious PC people have someone to feel superior to a…

I think I've lost a ton of earbuds in the past, but never my bluetooth headset which sits around my neck.

I generally cringe when I see somebody running around with earbuds now, the un-tangling, the lunging the phone around when wires are too short, the elaborate wiring up ritual where you tuck the wires below your shirt. lol

I see no valid argument for wired headphones to be used with a phone.
Security? AES-CCM in bluetooth 4.2
Convinience? NFC is actually easier, no menu, just swipe your phone against the tag on the headset.
Audio quality? LOL you are listening to music outside where traffic noise should nil any difference audiophiles claim to perceive.
Charging? Even the cheapest headset last 16 hours.
Having to buy a new headset? Really, you are buying an iphone7, a device costing 600 only having a marginally faster processor and a marginally better camera compared to it's predecessor and you're complaining?

The real problem with bluetooth is that it's not a secure protocol. Don't use it to attach to a rental car for instance. No one can snoop your personal info from the aux jack, but they can from bluetooth.

Even leaving your BT on opens you to snooping if someone manages to spoof a paired device. Things are just too weird right now, and bluetooth isn't designed well enough to make me comfortable. I'd just stick with the dongle for now.

i dont buy apple products and it's not hard to manage a wire.
phoebe knows whats up with bluetooth security.
it's way more convenient just to plug headphones in.
are you really using "lol you can't hear it anyway" to dismiss poor audio quality?
you don't have to charge wired headphones.

i mean you might like all that shit but we're coming from different angles so who cares.

These are horrible parts... if you're on a budget go for the new skylake 1151 platform and an i3 6100
