Facebook revenue comes from advertisers. You pay for free services with your data. At least now you will have the chance to decide if that is what you really want to do. By now Facebook and Google know a lot about their users. Though that data will get stale over time. I wonder how many Facebook users would actually pay for an ad-free subscription?
Apple is full of crap. It is very misleading to tell users they can purchase something with a "Buy" button and then suggest that they do not own it. I think they would get a lot less money , if they had a "Use for an unknown amount of time" button.
They know people think they are buying it. Purely deceptive.
The reason why products are cheaper in China are because of lack of labor laws. So they use child labor, forced labor, slave labor, etc. They also have few environmental protection laws. This also makes it cheaper to produce products. US products do have these restrictions, so it is more expensive to produce products in the United States. Companies like Apple go to China for their products becauset is cheaper .. but then they should not pretend to be so environmentally conscious and they should not pretend to be so socially conscious. By simply producing their products in China, they are not either.
