Don't include MacOS - you can install software from anywhere on that, the store is just a convenience.

I thought this was about big companies scraping entire stories and presenting them on their own sites with an attribution but it reads like this is just about when I click on the news filter what comes up. I don't see why Google should need to fulfill all of those requirements when just presenting a story link and extract. As for paying the likes of the Murdoch press for a link to a story, what the fuck?
You’re not their target market. Tinkerers need not apply. These devices are targeted at people that buy what they need first up and “admire the design” as it sits on display. Pros using Apple machines spend big dollars on high end kit and write it off against tax. Their boxes have replaceable components.
Others like myself will run hackintoshes until they go all in with their own silicon. However we take the occasional pain for that choice.
My 2010 2.93GHz i7 seems to be going just fine. Sure it’s now relegated to just being the “family” computer as it met the barrier of to low a graphics card for post High Sierra macOS, but for modern versions where thunderbolt and USB allow you to effectively upgrade the graphics card it’s not so much of a problem.
If this is the reaction from *white* people asking to move away from problematic wording, can you imagine what would happen if people of color spoke up, though?
Sorry, I don't follow your straw-man construct - probably due to the visibility issues caused by the large plume of smoke as it burns to the ground. I think the point the OP you respond to is making is colour agnostic. They are more offended by the ignorance shown. That doesn't have to come with any colour attached and is more a sign of the times where any little twat gets offended on someone else's behalf.
Perhaps we should also get started on binary whilst we're at it - those 1's and 0's are very male-female centric and not entirely inclusive for those that perhaps don't identify as being strictly one or t'other.
Locking the borders for longer is just logical. Given most don't trust the numbers coming out of China would you want to open up to travellers from there? It is easier to just keep them shut rather than have to preclude people from certain countries and be able to trace everyone entering's port of origin or detect picking up nasties on the way.
The problem that these idiot politicians are creating is that with every further privacy encroaching step they take they push society further towards totally encrypted communications, VPNs, Signal messenger etc. The whole "going black" issue is entirely of their own creation. If their access was warranted (both aspects) and proportionate the issue would not exist. Make all my data visible to someone investigating dog shit on the pavement and you'll see fuck all.
Only health workers can access the off-device data and even then only after initial opt-in and a second request for permission after a positive test.
Only health workers? Bullshit. How does the system know that? Once the data is off-device anyone with the right skills can access it. FFS.
Given you will only ever get to see the client-side code I'd wager the server side looks more like a junior school kid's my first web-service project.
At the point at which Apple force a spyware update to my phone against my will the phone will either be jail-broken or physically broken. They do not have the right and I will not tolerate this power grab bullshit. It doesn’t work and it won’t work. I go out without my phone, my phone runs out of battery etc etc, what then? Idiots.
To be honest, I don't se what the problem is. If we have truly descended that far when it comes to intelligence that you have to explain to someone "no, don't ingest or inject disinfectant" then it is clear the gene pool itself needs disinfecting. If someone is stupid enough to inject or ingest cleaning agents in the hope of killing the virus rather than themselves then, frankly, Darwin has his man/woman. As a species we are snowflaking ourselves into oblivion.
The one area where you do get issues is with modern laptops and their soldered on PCIe SSD drives. Often they require bespoke drivers that are not available for OSes other than W10. You can get Linux compatible Dell laptops if you can find them in your jurisdiction - I wasn't able to in mine and the latest Linux versions I have on my Multisystem USB simply don't see the storage.
However, under today's tax rates a contractor running this model still pays less tax overall than if they were taking all their money as a salary.
But they also receive no benefits paid for by the contracting entity and therefore their limited company needs to foot the bill for this. You cannot just compare the tax paid whilst not accounting for the benefits one receives over the other. 4 weeks paid leave would certainly account for a chunk of that "less tax".
More likely at least for the non technical users is they would probably switch away from firefox because it's not working
Maybe, but given they don't know it's a DNS issue many might just end up paying $$$ for support they don't (or rather shouldn't) need. They could at least make it default to a "use X if present else behave as previously"
