Try to make as much money out of independent repairer as she did out of Apple.
This is a good reason to repair with Apple.

The issue with this is that developers will have to avoid use of Open Source libraries that require to distribute the source code even when the library is used in a service.
So coming up with such will disadvantage you if you are trying to make your new project popular.
Generally - you can’t compete with those who give out their software for free and without limitations if you want make money out of your Open Source.
The main issue - the stupid EU rule that required this question. As with a many government regulation there are unintended consequences.
The easiest way to solve it is for the EU to recall the rule. But I don’t think EU is able to do this as it would mean admitting their mistake.
I wonder if the U.K. can remove just this part of GDPR now that we are not part of the EU?
Does it matter?
The number of people using this app is do low, that it does not matter if it works at all.
The very idea of this App was flawed in the first place. It is useless in the U.K. and it is useless in any other countries.
It can only work in those countries that can get away with apps that specifically designed to send the government your gps location linked to your identity and the police checks if you have the phone with you all the time.
We should take into account that people with good skills in the U.K. can find a good well paid job that makes risks associated with crimes not that attractive.
Which is why “foreign agent” hackers are the ones that are better qualified - the risks to be caught are lower if you are based in a country where the government supports your hacking and market salaries in those countries are not necessary that high.
The people who buy Apple are OK with “locking them in”. They do not want to run MacOS on anything else, they just want it to run reliably on Apple machine.
Windows can run everywhere but you pay the price with all those updates that occasionally kill the machine.
And Linux is too much of an effort.
We are living under the boot of woke fascists, who think it is up to them to I still virtue. Nasty people.
If someone is guilty of a crime, they should be tried in the court of law. Otherwise it is not the business of new self-appointed “morality officers” to decide who should be allowed and who should not to hold a position.
I really hate this “key-stroke saving” syntax sugar. It always makes the code less readable.
Take the tuple. Someone was lazy to create a class with two fields. So now instead of well-names class you have to figure out what “tuple” contains in someone else’s code.
And don’t even let me start on “vat”, something unavoidable in C++ but just a tool for lazy gits in Java.
There are cloud providers who will allow you to replicate your eggs across geographically diverse
And then one day the cloud company will decide that for some reason they dislike whatever service you provide and cancel your contract overnight, like AWS did to Parler. What you are going to do then?
