Apple's privacy standards at work...
quote:

A group of European digital advertising associations, some of which are backed by Google and Facebook, on Friday criticized Apple’s plans to require apps to seek additional permission from users before tracking them across other apps and websites.





quote:

According to the Reuters report, Google, Facebook, and the other online advertisers worry that Apple’s new privacy tools will cause a “a high risk of user refusal.”

If your business is underpinned by doing something that, when known and clearly presented to your customers, carries “a high risk of user refusal,” your business isn’t really all that sound – as it depends on keeping things secret. It’s deception by omission.

What Apple has been doing with their focus on user privacy, which they continue to strengthen, Google likely anticipated (at least the possibility), and is quite likely the main reason why Google developed Android, mimicked the iPhone poorly, and gave it away for free.

Not really ... Apple actually has decent Privacy Policy that is much clearer than most. A move like this further strengthens it. Google's Privacy Policy. the last time I read it, said once you agree to it you can never rescind it. That should tell you something. Apple is more hardware focused, where Google is more software focused and lives off stealing data. Google, under pressure, finally stopped reading emails just two years ago.

I debated on taking that part out of the quote. In the end the Devil convinced me leave it in....

I'm considering switching back.



I can't decide how annoyed I really am or am not by not having privacy, considering the number of devices that collect and send info.

I am hoping my Pixel2 lasts long enough for either the Librem 5, PinePhone, or another Linux phone to be ready to be a daily driver.

Same here.


I've sold my soul to Google, Amazon, Facebook, etc. Not sure how much good owning an iPhone does me when I have 5 Echoes littered throughout my house
