The router business is a very low margin business. Selling $300 books, massive margins.
Plus the book project was necessary to keep Ive. Apple is stuck feeding Ive's massive ego now, allowing him to do some really ridiculous projects because he's so bored. IMO, Ive needs to be replaced with a chief design head that is motivated and hungry. Ive at this point is fat, satisfied, lazy, and content.

They just 'turn off' their mantra in Belarus, China, Colombia, Egypt, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkmenistan, Uganda and the Philippines (and counting)....
So, yes, more freedom brings more risks. Should we have Apple lock us up to keep us safe? They know best, don't they? No thank you.I can keep my Macs safe. I can even keep my Windows computers safe. I can also keep my iPhone safe when I'm allowed to do with it what I want to do. No need for Apple to nanny me.

How would iOS know when I'm being tracked and when I'm not? Is it just based on time? What's the time minimum that triggers the warning? An hour? A day? A week?
saldog said:I believe what makes this wallet different is that the iPhone "knows" that it is the wallet accessory that is mated to MagSafe. Before, it might know that an accessory is connected, but not which accessory is connected. There must be some type of identification happening so iPhone knows the wallet is connected. This is not the same as AirTags so shouldn't be thought of the same way. The phone only knows the last time/place it was connected to the wallet, not where it is currently located.
Apple has copied plenty of things from Android and .. let's hope WWDC will bring a lot of news, because right now I have the intention Google is the one that is rather more innovative. I hope I'm wrong and Apple will blow us away on Monday...
