Sounds like the EU/European Commission should go after Spotify, Kidslox and others for not respecting EU laws on data collection. Wonder if the vendors disclosed what they were doing in the software agreement? These apps. could pose a security exposure risk for phones/tablets that may have corporate development data or military-related data (some non-kids may have installed the apps.). Same concern where similar apps. are available for desktops/laptops. Hopefully, corporations would detect the potential exposure, but smaller firms likely would not.
Historically, I don't expect much in the way of changes between minor updates. These are more like Windows service packs. Still, I'm not overly impressed by recent updates from Microsoft, Google or Apple. Not much improvement from any of them. I left the Windows camp after several OS updates that seemed to just reshuffle the same old functionality and make it more difficult to find what you wanted, or do what was necessary. In my opinion, Windows 2000 was the high point, and Microsoft has been going down-hill in ease of use since Win2k. Maybe it's time to consider Linux.

That's not going to translate into GPUs for Macs, which are going to continue to use Intel CPU technology (despite uniformed rumors to the contrary). But that doesn't mean Apple can't create their own GPU tech for Macs. I personally would be surprised if Apple bothered, seeing as the company has blatantly suffered from what I call Mac Malaise for over three years. (Kick ߦ妡mp;nbsp;Boot ߑ⦡mp;nbsp;Prod ⚡). Staying out of GPU patent lawsuits is of course a further concern.
