If Apple doesn't pay more if profits increase why should it expect a reduction if they fall?
After all, it doesn't pay users for lost time/work when brand new Apple things are faulty out of the box, or borked by manufacturing defects or bugs.

i had the original razr, and before that a startac, both excellently engineered
after a long gap with other brands, i got the lenovo moto z, their 'flagship' at the time
then there was the software update that seemed to bork battery life, they refused to fix the issue, plenty of screwed users on their support forum and elsewhere, two and a bit year old phone effectively trashed
no way i'd get another lenovo phone
the problem isn't cyclists/drivers/pedestrians/joggers/whatever, it's selfish, inconsiderate/careless/self-important twats
i suspect it may be the same twats who think it's ok to dump their unwanted food/drink/wrappers/cups/cans/bottles//whatever in the street, on public transport, in parks, on my front steps
twats need culling
dumping unredacted details is not journalism, wikileaks was widely criticized by many reputable journalists and others for it's actions
'But Stephen Aftergood, an anti-secrecy activist at the Federation of American Scientists, noted that WikiLeaks lately seemed to be surrounded by “a lot of melodrama.” He added: “When criticized, the standard WL response is to deny error, shift responsibility to someone else, and attack the critic. It does not inspire much confidence.”'
fwiw i see no justification for extraditing him to the usa, this creeping extraterritoriality and it's craven acceptance by the uk goverment is a disgrace, but his claiming to be a journalist is utter nonsense
i'd assume decongestion works in part by having the APs ignore client probes (the 'me', 'me', 'me' clients send out and that is so beloved of tracking and analytics systems) and client association requests (responses to AP beacon frames)
presumably clients seen as just passing through will not get a response
this works even with legacy clients
yes, really, plenty of these being deployed for instance...
...as well as the earlier generation
they're not perfect, and moving storage/analytics to the edge is not the best for all applications, but where it makes sense there's real benefit to eliminating back-end systems which need deploying, space, power, managing and maintaining
