Re: Apple screws the pre-iOD 13 customers
Which accounts for 6.4% of devices running iOS. Devices that are 9 years old or less can run iOS 13. Where are you going to go with better support, Android? Don't make me laugh.

They've been selling snakeoil for years. The opensource intelligencia and Snowdonites have been espousing their virtues for as long. Anyone else that works in email, epecially the security side, has been saying that Protons claims are spurious at best. Looks like their marketing is just downright misleading.
In this case I'd argue that portability is convenience, not availability. Don't forget, along with availability is confidentiality and integrity. Arguably being able to export JSON, even if you can encrypt it, breaks both those to some degree. At some point portability is not secure in this case, hence MFA over SMS being a bad thing.
>> "You caught a bad case of confirmation bias. Review other articles."
Yes and no. It's hard to argue the merits of this article. Sharwood's polemic is so beyond inept, it's laughable. There is 'biting the hand that feeds IT' and there is this article. Sharwood is tying himself in knots to make Apple look unreasonable. I gave up taking seriously anything this site had to say many moons ago. This though, this article is utter shite, and I'd wager goes against the views of the majority of the readership (not the good ol'fashioned Apple hating, the erosion of privacy).
ORLY? so this wasn't you?
Experience with a Blackberry? None recently. I've owned several pre iPhone and the nicest thing I can say about them is they were bland then; best of a bad bunch. Glad to be rid of them if I'm honest. Had a
laugh look at the Passport. didn't fit my needs. No, the iPhone does what I need. Hey if Blackberry works for you, then that's just dandy. Just don't fucking tell me what phone I should use based on your prejudices you jumped up little...
Of course YMMV, but then I'm not going around calling people names for using a different product. My slight was at the sudden volume of pro-Blackberry post on an Apple thread. It was a dig/troll. That you clearly took it personally tells us much.
I never said it wasn't legal. That's your own moral compass clamouring for justification. Here's the thing; if it's morally wrong, as were constantly told, that Google and Apple 'avoid' paying corporate taxes, why is it OK when a consultant does the same. I'd guess it would be distasteful to you if it were a 'celebrity' or a banker or a lawyer were to do similar too. You lot are the biggest bunch of hypocrites out there. Which is considerably more distasteful that tax avoidance.
XP left mainstream support 6 years ago, and Microsoft washed their hands of it completely last year. Apple have a notoriously harsh approach to legacy systems support - and even they only just stopped supporting it. What part of you thinks that, reasonably, Apple or indeed Microsoft, should support your cheapness/laziness further. FFS man upgrade your OS! I bet you're still connected to the internet with that thing. The mind boggles.
1. The Apple watch has this facility
2. Can't see the real utility myself and the digital crown works very well. The screen being obsured isn't much of an issue in daily use.
3. See http://furbo.org/2015/07/14/a-watch-water-and-workouts/. Basically, it's waterproof.
4. A self-charging mechanism would be advantageous. That said, I get about 2 days charge wich ain't too bad for a first gen product.
"And, let's be honest, Apple know exactly who you are as they have your Apple ID on the same device. Just because they've not shown it linked in, doesn't mean they couldn't, can't, don't, haven't or won't. If you are authenticating the software on the device and the device is linked into an Apple ID account or course they know who you are. Whether they join the dots or not greatly depends on local legislation, not technical capability."
Prove it. With actual tangible evidence. If you can't shhhhhhh. You're talking shit.
"the core idea of a taxi license is setting up some much needed frequent checking on drivers..."
That'd be fine if that is what actually happened. Parisian taxis are a ripoff and might as we'll be unregulated. They are run by a cartel that, using unions, strong arms government.
