Bitcoin dork launches ‘Freedom Phone’ scam for MAGA mob
You have to hand it over to Erik Finman, baby face bitcoin millionaire: The guy is good at spotting a lucrative scam from miles away. Finman (who we must assume to be a “financial man” coat rack) surveyed the landscape of contemporary America and spotted the piss-yellow glitter of glistening gold in the crumpled khaki pockets of the viewing set. the afternoon of Fox News week. The choiceax he uses to dig up this treasure? Too expensive waste called the âFreedom Phoneâ.
Advertised with a proudly waving American flag, the Freedom Phone is touted on his website like “Completely. Uncensored. It calls itself a “free speech and privacy first focused phone” that includes “features like tracking blockers and an uncensored app store” that will let you “read what you like”.[,] look what you like [, and] think what you want. Basically it just means it’s preloaded with Speaking, the rat-infested open-air version of the already crappy Twitter plague, and has a VPN lit at any time.
It also costs $ 499.99 and is advertised with this video, which is a sight to see.
After presenting the historic peril of private social media sites by belatedly and ineffectively enforcing the bare minimum of hate speech controls, Finman says he created the Freedom Phone to fight for our rights to insult someone. one online without suffering any consequences. Resplendent in an oversized mock-neck sweater, with his barely audible words to rousing orchestral music, the inventor boy discusses the âPatriApp Storeâ. Finman also touts privacy features quite similar to those enabled on most browser apps, and warns viewers that if social media operators can “censor a president, they’ll censor anyone.”
âImagine if Mark Zuckerberg censored MLK or Abraham Lincoln,â he says, without a hint of irony. âThe course of history would have changed forever. “
A Twitter feed from Finman deplores preventively the inability of US manufacturers to manufacture the MAGA compatible device, promises it was not created in “mainland China”, and explains its produced by “the free and freedom-loving people of Hong Kong”.
Since its announcement, the Freedom Phone turned out to be a slightly reworked Umidigi A9 Pro, made by a Chinese manufacturer and typically sells for around $ 120. Its custom Android-based “Freedom OS” operating system also appears to be very vulnerable to hackers since, as CNET Remarks, it is not officially supported and “may not receive the latest patches and security updates.” Gizmodo call him “A potential nightmare for security (and therefore also privacy)”. And, as proof of their confidence in the product, Finman and support Candace Owens (one of the right-wing promoters who gets $ 50 per phone sold) were tweeting about the cool new device of their iPhones.
We’ll take two, please.
