melgross said:The only thing that bothers me is the file copy. When I copy a file, I'm doing it for a reason. I want an exact copy. If I alter one, I don't necessarily want the other altered. If one gets corrupted, rare, but it does happen, I want the other pristine one to replace it. I'm not sure how this will work.
its a reason why I'm not fond of de-duping. My copies are intentional.
1) Make a "copy". Yes, this is not a true copy. This points back to the original.
2) Make changes to the file, either the original or the "copy".
3) APFS will record the changes and only make the changes necessary to the appropriate file. And data not changed will be unaltered in either file, but there will be a list of changes made.
So, to sum up, if you make a copy of a file and then change either file, the file that you changed will show the changes while the other file will not. In the meantime, data that is not changed between them will continue to be shared. But reading either file will result in the correct data being read.
How is this a bad thing?

Don't charge people for your closed ecosystem that we already know will be inferior. Sorry, gotta go, someone calling me on my flip phone. Assholes.

Can someone explain to me why when I ask Siri in iOS 10 while I am driving ( I do not have car play)
"Hey Siri, give me directions to home"
And Siri says " I cant help you while you are driving"?
Why cant 'she' start voice directions?
Mr_Grey said:Also, who really gives a rodent's behind about the super-rich Apple employees work benefits? Most of the employees at Apple (barring the retail ones) are millionaires already. They already have the kind of working conditions one would expect in Canada or Europe and are thus far above the rest of the American population already. Why should I as a customer of Apple care that they now have even more?
