Oh Microsoft what about M365? You actually leverage your Win position to force out all other MDM/Office/Identity providers out of the market, (everyone is leaving MDM platforms as you offer Intune for “free” ) What about Xbox, and you buying up game developers … Sore losers, but fear not, people will eventually see this and cancel their M365 subs, I know my company with 300 seats just did, just because they feel abused … and Apple is offering Apple Business Essentials … I hope a lot will follow suit.
Every other cloud provider has been scanning/hashing your photo's for years. So they know everything, Apple's implementation makes it so that Apple knows nothing about you, except if you have CSAM pictures ... and only if you are using iCloud. Mister Snowdon has been silent on all the other implementations that are truly a privacy disaster (The Billions made from it scanning your content are just a proof how effective Google and Facebook use this data). The assumption that governments may ask Apple to scan for other content is just plain stupid, it's speculative and if they really want this, tech companies would be forced already with legislation.
PS wonder why there is no FaceTime in the middle east ... pure legislation ...

“Epic lowered prices through a direct payment option, but Apple is blocking Fortnite in order to prevent Epic from passing on the savings from direct payments to players.”
They are making an extra $1 from these d*mb players. They still don’t see it and believe the #freefornite c*ap.
For those believing in Hydrogen, it needs to be way more efficient, Battery car is from electricity production to consumption 75% efficient, Hydrogen 35% …
Also after filling up 5 hydrogen cars, the station needs to regenerate and so filling up takes more time after a while … Last but not least, in Norway they had some but they needed to close temporarily as one blew up, luckily no one was injured.
(Not all H2 is green, in fact today 95% is made by refraction of methane ;-))

Anyway I’m bought and Apple user and a Tesla driver, I can only say this, I will keep on buying Apple Products, buit my 2020 Model X will be my first and last Tesla …
I would be limited by the number of characters I can post. A colleague of mine recently had an accident with her Tesla Model 3, still in the repair chop after 4 month’s …
Some random points me and my friends experienced Tesla ownership:
- Phantom breaking (my 6 year old Germans car has better high way adaptive cruise control)
- low sun, no AP available
- no real 360 camera, really? (Pathetic rear and side view cam’s are not really 360, let alone if you drive fwd)
- accusing Apple of being closed, yet no Android auto or Apple CarPlay
- try to get in when it’s freezing, guess they do not have that in CA ;-)
- automatic wipers, still beta and utterly unusable
- no cross traffic assistance when reversing of the drive way (again my 6 year old German car has that)
The list of missing features is long, but I’m bored …
I’ll leave out the personal service issues I have, had to many to count and to small a sample, but if you go on social media, strangely enough the list I see there, matches mine 90%
I thought it would be better with Model Y, but some reviews on YT made me decide to cancel my Y.
They are/where the most efficient EV’s out there, but the current generation of EV’s come pretty close and even beat Tesla at that, the only reason for me left was the supercharger network, but after they have opened that up in many EU countries, I decided my next one will not be a Tesla anymore, and in fact my friends that have one, only one will stay Tesla, the rest will move to their previous brands, mostly BMW, Audi, VW, Porsche … seems like Germans know how to build cars and are finally catching up to Tesla, now if they only could build them at scale, granted that is something Tesla has figured out, and is in this society probably more important, as waiting 12 month’s for a car is something most of us can’t stand, instant gratification is the rage and pleasure delaying is not ;-)
