    It's coming! You heard it here first, Apple's iOS13 will be dedicated to make every Apple device we own 'anonymous' when connected to the internet. Our devices will just look like an iPhone or MacBook.

    Privacy is Apple's next big move! :)

    I could even see an iLife-like suite of Apps devoted to Privacy! 

    Bad FaceBook, very bad! :)


    I would even go farther, for iOS 13, facebook and its associated apps won't install and the existing ones can't work.  facebook's balls needs to be smashed.
    And what if a significant group of  iPhone customers, who cannot access their facebook app anymore, switch to Android?  Whose balls will be smashed then?
    I haven't had the Facebook app installed since they pulled that crap with playing a silent audio file to be able to keep the app alive in the background indefinitely for tracking purposes. 

    That alone should have got them kicked from the App Store. Fuckers.

    I guess FaceCrook needs to amend the job description of their software engineers to include “...and must be able to read”.

    And just as quickly all the never-leave-Facebook crowd on iOS would switch to another platform that didn't ban them.

    At the same time, nobody mentions what is happening ing on the android side of things. 
    Train still chumming along happily? 
    Users totally aware of and being used to this kind of treatment?
    ios only problem?  Yeah, I thought so.
    From Rene Ritchie at iMore, quoting TechCrunch:


    After this story was published, Facebook later told TechCrunch it will shut down the iOS version of its Research app in the wake of our report.



    The “iOS version”?

    So from this can we assume that there’s a similar program running on Android, and that Facebook has no intention of shutting it down? Why would they? Google is hardly likely to complain about nefarious data collection, are they?




    On Android they can just have the app in the store and people can just download it and not have to pay people to use it.   Why would Google stop Facebook from doing what they do?  Android is just completely infested inside and out.  It seems most people just don't care.

    Actually it reads “must be able to find loopholes and hide non-supported/unauthorized activity from third parties”

    I still do not see what is special about Facebook. What they offer could easily be replicated by any company with fairly deep pockets.

    I do have an account, but only because it is a fairly convenient way to keep in touch with a lot of people like extended family and friends from back in the day. Were Apple to stop buying back stock, they could develop and launch a competing service with a subscription model instead of ad supported.

    That’s what I was actually trying to say. Maybe a little convoluted. Things like this apparently only gets into the limelight when connected to iOS. On android, it would appear that no one even cares. And this includes specifically the users. Not google not caring that other apps on their platform exploit user data without consent.
