Get a Kindle Fire (wi-fi only, only when you want it), root it, and add only GPL software you trust, including a SIP client. Carry a Sprint wi-fi hotspot, turning it on only on your terms.
Do you have any information (maybe guides/howtos) on how to do this?
Eventually you'll find that "most people" are actually a lot more intelligent than you think they are, and they're laughing behind your back while you go on caring about inane shit that doesn't matter.
Where did I say anything about intelligence? I know many people who are intelligent, yet do not care about the world around them. I know many people who care deeply about the world around them, but are not intelligent. And I could really care less if some yahoo is laughing at me because he gets to play Angry Birds on his iPhone/Android Phone and I don't (not having one). I find enjoyment and fulfillment working (one very small step at a time) to make the world a better place.
Sure, not everyone enjoys the same stuff, and the enjoyment people get from sitting in front of the TV all evening is equivalent to the enjoyment I find in life. But I am saying that just because people don't care about FOSS doesn't mean proprietary software is acceptable/good/better, nor does it mean that the actions of Apple/Microsoft/Google/etc are acceptable either. The point is that "most people don't care about FOSS" is just a dumb argument.
If you think the system is working, ask someone who's waiting for a prompt.
