Practically speaking we should not be concerned at all. For years we’ve been treated to these doomsday scenarios by security ‘researchers’ and there is not one scintilla of evidence to suggest that any of this stuff has gained wide spread traction. It comes, people get nervous and wring their hands in anxiety, the security paranoids bloviate that we are all doomed, then it all goes way and nothing comes of it EVER! Look at the recent explosion of paranoia over the Android...
The average retail investor buys high and sells low and that’s why so many think the stock market is a casino where the house always wins. But you can’t make any money these days without being in the stock market. You actually lose money to inflation with CDs that pay little to no interest over long periods of time. You might as well just put your money in a tin can and bury it in the back yard. Bonds? Meh. Precious metals? Gimme a break! The tip your dentist gave you will...
Meaningless without context. Were the gains made by Xiaomi and Huawei in the high end flagship market or the low end crap phone market? I’m sure Apple is happy to concede the low end to these two companies just like it does Samsung. Since Apple’s Chinese revenues were up 112% I’m guessing they are not all that concerned about this ‘report’ that implies impending failure and collapse by Apple. Of course these kinds of reports are what generate ad clicks so I’m not surprised...
Apple claims its “Retina” displays have the same resolution as the human eye. If that’s really true how could a human eye detect the difference between ‘Retina’ and ‘8K’? I’m not buying this one little bit.
To be truthful Google IS making and releasing patches but they are not getting to Android owners in any kind of timely manner because of how Google allowed the OEMs and carriers to control updates in the name of ‘open.’ I think only Nexus owners can get patches quickly and directly from Google.
Good read. It reminds me of the fAndroid crowd’s tired meme that only stupid people buy Apple products.
 It’s getting a little tiring reading the stupid responses to my original post. The sarcasm and the name calling is about as offensive as it gets. So let me try to rephrase myself. In the future my purchases of external devices will be restricted to the prevailing format or connection protocol of the day. I will no longer sink money into the connection technology du jour that Apple happens to be promoting at the time only to have it disappear a generation or two later,...
Funny, that’s exactly what was said about Firewire too in the beginning. And ‘professionals’ were quite aware of Firewire’s performance advantages then also. Now it’s gone from Apple’s desktop lineup. 
Utilized or not utilized equates to win/lose. What part of that don’t you get? Firewire ‘lost’ and is no longer ‘utilized’ en masse. There I fixed it for you.
No way did Apple’s MacBook adoption of USB c-type influence or accelerate its adoption by other OEMs. That’s just nonsense hype from an AI writer. Look, I’m as big a fanboy as any but come on now, USB has won hands down. NuBus, SCSI, ADB, Firewire, Thunderbolt have all LOST! It would not surprise me to see Apple drop Thunderbolt in the next few future Mac iterations. Heaps of praise to Apple for trying to promote new technologies but they all lost. I’m sitting here right...
