@xerz Trust is based on trustworthy actions. And, going forward, I don’t plan on rewarding Apple’s behaviour with money or anything else for that matter.
@xerz @aral It's pretty hard to trust them if they own the entire hard and software stack. It's hard enough to trust Intel / AMD with their messed up management engines. But let's see where this is going. No I will not buy. Even if I still did buy Apple products, this is a first gen, that's never their strong release.
I feel exactly the same way. Very unfortunate that it should go like this, but it's their own fault, fools.
@Aral Balkan pinebook pro and mnt reform are good arm devices. i am happy with pinebook pro and i recommend it to everybody.
@aral MacBook Pros also don’t seem to be as repairable as they once were. When my old boy croaks, I might look at a Framework laptop or a a few year old refurbished MacBook Pro.
@aral they literally backtracked on it, and like when compared to others like google or Facebook they are way better. But go on with your ideological Puritanism I guess
And you could still get Linux on your Mac anyway so your point is moot
@louisrcouture They delayed it. And good luck with your Linux on M1 experience. And finally, really bloody hate your attitude and would rather not see your crappy replies in the future so I’m blocking you. Have a nice life.
They've been trying to fix their keyboard for over a decade now. It is never a phenomenal device.
I was going to buy a MacBook (I wanted that M1 chip).
Where did you see the article about client scanning?
@MusicCentral You can find a link to the original announcement on my post at https://ar.al/2021/08/08/apple-is-trying-to-redefine-what-it-means-to-violate-your-privacy-we-must-not-let-it/
