as for telemetry:

Settings -> Energy saving and privacy -> Automatically share data about the features you use

once that is turned off, the device doesn't seem to send any other telemetry as far as I can tell

another thing, triggering a manual sync using the sync button in the top bar causes the device to sync the time via NTP and then sync with your Kobo account via its API

interesting that the device has this priority in keeping the device time in sync with the public NTP pool

observations about the Kobo OS:

- it syncs time via the public NTP pool upon connecting to the network (I see DNS queries for *.pool.ntp.org when the device wakes up and connects to the configured Wi-Fi network)

- I managed to cause my first freeze/crash in the OS, not 100% sure how I triggered it. But the device was unresponsive to any input, touchscreen or button. Had to reset the device by holding the power button

email from Steam tells me that Daemon X Machina is now available there for those of y'all who were interested in playing that on PC
