Whenever I buy Apple stuff, and I really own a lot these days, this question haunts me at night.
That data would be worth a lot to governments or organizations interested in monitoring and potentially controlling a population's activities. Not that people don't already make a lot of this data available publicly, but the level of detail in the profile data gathered by Google would offer far more potential for misuse.

Oh man have I waited for this...

Red goes with a white face so much better.wood1208 said:Thanks Mr. for visually proving the best combination for the Red iPhone. Apple can introduce black and white front for Red iphone to see which combination people like/buy the most. There is no extra cost during manufacturing, assembly. Than in future, no debate necessary.
Second, this whole topic of red vs. white with black illustrates why the red/black combination would have been tried and rejected by Apple in the first place. Red combined with black are the signal colors of both fascism and fetishism — too hot and too incendiary for a Product Red version of the phone. This is why people, including even John Gruber, are so blindly lusting over the combination, forgetting that Apple has to tread very carefully with a product like this.
Of course they would go with Red Cross/Red Crescent red and white and not Nazi/satanic red and black.
As many have stated hereon the issue. I see a bigger problem looming, but hope Apple doesnt waste its time/effort/advantage now in not bringing os x and IOS together. MS has exceeded expectations for what surface could be with the 4 and how it looks like a pretty good inbetween device. I have a few corporate clients that have switched now from macs to Surface 4 (atleast started). I asked their opinion and they where very pleased with the devices. So pleased that they couldn´t stop talking about it. And when you hear this from a former mac entusiast (the person/client that I asked) it really gives me the creaps on apples situation...Infact it sounds like something from the mouth of a mac devotee...
Hope Apple keeps evolving the UI and devices to an even greater devices in the future and doesnt work like Sony and try to keep all the categories that are now. Things change and the ipad really hasnt. I mean well the hardware has but the UI is still quite the same as it came out, even if you could use it differently in you have another form factor and size. I wouldnt buy another ipad until it does something else (i use mine only for surfing/video/reading). The screen real estate thats wasted is just mindboggling to me. Its just a bigger iphone really (with the space inbetween the app launchers).
Apple are we seeing better inbetween devices or arent we? Are you pushing up to the expectations of something greater?

Um... Did you have trouble following the reasoning I gave you in my original post? Or the ones following that? What part of 'advancing a conversation by providing a valid counterargument' (I am paraphrasing) are you having trouble figuring out?
