Making the fair choice easier: Fairphone 4 is here

Filed under
Gadgets

I joined Fairphone four years ago. I knew nothing about phones. But I did know something about chocolate. And supply chains. As First Lady of Chocolate at Tony’s Chocolonely, I knew what it was like to work at a company that was out to change the rules and behaviour of an entire industry. We worked towards slave-free chocolate and, like Fairphone, we shared our sources with other buyers. We were not out to corner the market on fair — we wanted the entire industry to change.

  • Fairphone 4 is a repairable, modular phone that’s made to last at least 5 years

    At first glance, you could easily mistake the Fairphone 4 for any modern mid-range Android smartphone. It has a 6.3 inch LCD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor, up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage and a microSD card reader, but no headphone jack.

    But unlike most phones, the Fairphone 4 is designed to last a long time. It comes with a 5-year warranty, and Fairphone plans to continue offering software updates through at least the end of 2025, if not longer.

  • Fairphone 4 has an incredible 5-year warranty, aims for 6 years of updates

    The key Fairphone feature is the modular components, which make repairs easy with just a screwdriver. Inside the phone, you'll find eight easily replaceable parts: the display, the USB-C port, selfie camera, ear speaker, main camera array, loudspeaker, battery, and the rubberized back. If you break anything, all of these parts will be available for sale on Fairphone.com. The only "noncommercial spare part" is the core module, which features the SoC, storage, RAM, device frame, and fingerprint reader.

    Fairphone is striving for longevity this year, and the easy repairability of this model allows for an incredible five-year warranty at no extra cost. The company is also promising "long-term availability of spare parts"—parts for the Fairphone 2, a device that launched in 2015, are still for sale on the website.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
