I checked out a cheap Alcatel phone a few months back and found a load of preinstalled bloat/spy/adware.

Ran a training this afternoon for new #WorkerCoop employees on track to become members, which was followed by a Green Mountain Worker Co-op Alliance pizza party, which was, in turn, followed by a meeting of the Vermont Solidarity Investing Club.

Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
