Looks like a Traeger faggot pellet smoker. If you want to be a faggot and control the grill and check temps over your smurfphone this is why this is here.

Why did phone number become a requirement?

It binds accounts to SIMs, and thus to people. More countries every year require registering SIM cards.
In the US most prepaids/VoIP won't work with some services - only numbers that can be tracked to people do.

yes and more and more people don't have proper paperwork. what a genius move!

look here people we have a genius gracing /g/ with his wisdom
big brain anon discovered we can use fake emails for email registration
can't wait for your next thrilling discoveries such as if you don't want to watch ads, install an adblocker
point of the thread isn't the trivial effort to circumvent these childish measures, but that we have to even deal with that immaturity in the first place

Grill BSOD's eternally

accounts on websites should be optional, and if they are created, they should only require a username and a password. all the additional things should be optional.
>>
>>91118611
so you can control your grill from the shitter, duh
>>
>>91118611
It relays info to your phone like internal temperature, timers etc.
While it's not internet connected, my parents have a bluetooth thermometer that you leave in the meat. The app has timers, best temperatures for rare, medium-rare etc. timers, a lot of information.
Best part is they cook amazing meat now as well. It's not overdone.

Boomers are big on this "smart" shit now, I guess they think they went to the moon in the '60s and that they're due some actual tech advancements by the 2020s. My dad was showing me on Monday his new label maker that he uses via bluetooth and w/ its own iPhone app. He was so proud of it. "Look at all these different formats!" he declared, shortly before replacing a hand-written label with a machine-printed label saying the exact same thing.

Meanwhile, I'm extremely skeptical of anything bluetooth, and barely have any 'apps' installed on my 7.5 y/o phone, which I see no need to ever upgrade from.

It must be horrible to live in a totalitarian shithole that binds SIM cards to real identity.
>>
>>91128451
where u from anon?
>>
>>91128713
Czech. You can just walk to a grocery store and buy any amount of SIM cards. They are all pre-paid, can be recharged anonymously with cash and they are not registered to any name. All you need to do is to put them into your phone to activate them. And there are no limits in use either, you just have to charge them once per year so they stay active.

same here, romanian btw

I wired an arduino to 2 relays (live and neutral) to disconnect my printer from the wall when it's not being used.

>>
>>91119091
as >>91119205 said a phone number binds data to people
if you want to buy or sell data, a phone number allows for dataset enrichment:
if i have a dataset with phone numbers and buy another dataset with phone numbers, i can now merge the two
>>
>>91128779
im pretty sure they can’t request shit. though we never had an official case
>>
>>91129157
Based. Our countries, alongside Baltic ones (and Poland) are the last good places in Europe in regard to this stuff. Hell, last places in the world.
>>
>>91125615
Yep. Had a guy showed how everything in his home can be controlled from an app on his phone with a layout of his home.
It's neat but fuck that.
>>
>>91118083
If you really complain about this, I am 99% sure that you are just low IQ faggot who cant get around that. Cheap disposable phone number costs like 0.3 USD.

Depends on website.
Some services are only make sense with account. Like online games account. Or email (duh).

But yeah there shouldn't be any gib email gib phone. But passwords should be more. It should be
Login (not publicly visible).
Normal password (login allows use of service but can't change pass and login).
Admin password (login doesn't allow use if service so users doesn't a use admin pass for everyday operation, this admin password allows change of the login and password, and account delete).
It's for safety. Ideas is you login with normal password and store admin pass offline. If your device is compromised and loginpass stolen you can restore ownership using admin pass,. Admin pass is not used for everyday operation and therefore inherently more safe).

Just no. Stop asking things you don't need.
