Information overload re: air-gapped computer.

Looking to setup a simple air-gapped computer. Experiencing information overload.

I will need to transfer files from a hot system every so often (software updates), so I plan to use a CD or DVD over a USB stick (to avoid potential viruses).

Considering an Intel NUC (running Linux): Compact. Plus, I have access to components, saving $$$. The Wi-Fi module is soldered onto the motherboard, but can be disabled in BIOS. Apparently, the Bluetooth cannot? I’m open to suggestions, and initially considered a cheap laptop – but possibly this solution is excessive as it will be rarely used.

Would appreciate if anybody could point me in the right direction. Thanks.

Should we be questioning the privacy of Uber?

Noting that Uber is being given billions of dollars by a Chinese search engine known for censorship (I presume has significant equity)… are users throwing their 24/7 GPS coordinates, credit card details, addresses and the like at a questionable source?

Uber say they will go public… but I dunno! A company losing $4.5 billion a year may not wanna do that (and expose itself to the reporting obligations…etc).

I’ll get slammed for this (as you do for posting against Uber online – again… where does that $4.5 billion go for a company with pretty much no overhead that relies on screwing workers into paying all their costs of enterprise? SOCIAL MARKETING!) But like, IMO people should ask the question about whether they wanna be handing all this data over to a company largely backed by a Chinese search engine.

Any concerns over OnePlus and Chinese spying?

Recently it’s come to my attention that there may be [concerns with mobile phone manufacturers like Huawei and ZTE](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huawei#Espionage_and_security_concerns_in_the_West) – I know, I’m late to the party.

I haven’t seen any concerns raised over OnePlus – and I happen to own one. It is, however, a company based in China. Do you think that this an issue?

Is there a way to export my PGP keys offline?

Other that printing out the long string of texts, is there a way to export both private and public keys hardcopy, AND be easy to import? For example, similar to a qr code to make transferring easier. I’ll like to do this to keep a backup of my private keys, but also make it easier to share public keys irl using hardcopy.

EDIT: if possible, ELI5 as I’m still new to this. EDIT 2: Changed offline to hardcopy.
