Can we please NOT show that video keyframe image of SOMEONE'S DEAD CHILD? It's in really poor taste. Have a link to the CPSC video without a preview, and include a warning, I beg you.

That is not to say masks don’t work at all, but the way we’re wearing them clearly will not be effective. We aren’t talking about wearing an N 95 or better mask when entering a high risk environment like a medical facility or a nursing home. We’re talking about wearing a piece of cloth or paper across your face while you shop for your new AirPods. It’s not going to do anything.
N95 masks are designed to minimize incoming exposure and transmission. Proper cloth masks are designed to reduce transmission. They help capture the viruses encapsulated in micro droplets as you breathe out, reducing the chance of a contagious person from spreading the virus.Mask wearing has been proven to help reduce spread and the data can be easily seen when comparing places with and without mask mandates (along with how seriously the people take these rules).

Step 1. Implement a function. Tell no on about it.
Step 2. Have it discovered by someone outside the organization.
Step 3. Retroactively explain, then offer an opt out.
Opt out after the fact gives the impression that "we're only offering an opt out because someone found out what we're doing". Unnecessary self infliction.
Apple stop punching yourself in the nuts. The optics are always worse when "caught" doing something. That vaunted Marketing department could have easily preemptively spun this as a security and safety bullet point of the 11 series and 100% we would have had multiple articles extolling the virtues of UWB geofencing. Not a negative peep would have been heard.

Apple did not remove this app to protect Amazon. Amazon was able to find a specific Apple App Store guideline that Fakespot violates. Apple has no choice but to remove the app as a result.This has nothing to do with censorship but rather holding a company accountable to its own rules. I’m sure if Fakespot was able to find a way to eliminate this violation, its App will be re-approved.
