If Apple is having so much trouble understating that your device is YOUR device and must always work in your interests and only according to your express instructions, they do not deserve any modicum of trust whatsoever going forward as this clearly indicates that their core philosophy is that it is THEIR device, not yours.

And that approach is detrimental to human rights, democracy, and the very concept of personhood in the digital network age.



So, no, Apple, this issue isn’t going away. And neither are we.

(Although a good number of us will likely stop using your products and developing for your platforms and start warning others to do the same.)
