Apps loaded from alternate app stores would have exactly the same privileges as apps loaded from Apple's app store – just app review is done by a different institution. If you don't trust a institution, you can decide which app stores you trust.

At some point, there is a burden of personal responsibility that comes into operation in most folks lives.
A cheap throw away cell phone with a cash prepaid SIM card makes more sense than any brand of smart phone.

I have mixed feelings on the device insurance. I've had generally no trouble, or been covered w/ a program (MBPro keyboard), or had amazing service where they just fixed stuff. In over 15 years, only one iMac truly died (the model where the nVidia cards tended to die). There are so few components in new Macs (did you so the motherboard for the M1 iMac?) it's hard to imagine what could go wrong.

Rehash MY user case; which is probably a significant number of user cases. Why did I buy Parallels? Why pay $$ for this program?
Now, I have no choice but have multiple computers at home. Because programs that USED TO work flawlessly, no longer function at all.
