  • That's great. Does Apple have to ask you though and who is to stop them from vending access to your personal device through their own company as the host of third party subsidiaries? In other words, this means precisely nothing.

  • we won't be carrying 'smartphones' in 10-20 years... and it's gonna seem so weird to see old video of people carrying these big heavy things... it'll all be wearable tech and agumented/virtual reality.

  • Big deal, Android is better. Just take a single 20 min 4k video cooking noodles and try to get it off your phone. No, try to get it thru USB, nuh uh. 128 GB phone that requires hours of research to figure out how to download your best video ever from it.

  • What a selfish and selfie nation of self-interested people, self-empowered by signals from the sky. Amazing race, how code thou art, to reign radiation down on me. You once were siloed, but now you're broadcast, how hot a transmission you'll be.
