If I may ask, how many of you who are expressing the need keep x86 are currently using a MacBook or MacBook Air? What percentage of that 35% of AI readers would that be? And what percentage of the total Mac user base would that be? I think the va…

That's like asking a manufacturer of paper shredders to un-shred a clients' documents.
Want to make the alarm better? Start with making the snooze button bigger than a line of text.
You realize this argument goes beyond U.S. Interests. Apple is an international organization. If back doors are created, they can either be abused by U.S. Government to spy on foreign citizens, innocent or otherwise. Or if you're a more self centred…
