And scanning with on-device learning of your photo library for any reason is an invasion of privacy without permission
Moreover, the fact that iCloud in China is not totally under Apple's control is probably a significant reason for Apple to rely on on-device processing to do these checks, as it means that it is totally under Apple's control.
GeorgeBMac said:As people migrate away from cable to streaming, Apple TV -- at least a good, quality Apple TV -- is and will be needed more than ever.In addition, Apple could (and I think should) also produce a Dolby Atmos system that ties into it. They should also be looking at gaming consoles to challenge XBox and Playstation.But, Apple seems to be befuddled by the home:
-- Their Homekit doesn't seem to have much interest or direction from management-- Their Apple TV doesn't seem to get much interest or direction either.-- Then instead of expanding and enhancing Homepod, they killed it.Apple has so much cash that they are literally giving it away. But they won't invest in products to enhance the home despite so much potential there.But it's also contradictory: They are investing Billions into Apple TV+ But, what are people supposed to watch it on? Comcast cable?
The main take-away - commercial cloud hosting uses their servers. Should they not take measures to address child pornography on them? Not using their commercial service, there’s no issue. Is that not reasonable? One needn’t use commercial hosting services, especially if using it for illegal purposes.
So, that child protection pretext stinks. Since law enforcement can access iCloud data anytime, Apple’s attempt to adopt self-declared law enforcement role to “prevent crimes before they occur” is Orwellian !
From: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/05/technology/apple-iphones-privacy.htmlU.S. law requires tech companies to flag cases of child sexual abuse to the authorities. Apple has historically flagged fewer cases than other companies. Last year, for instance, Apple reported 265 cases to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, while Facebook reported 20.3 million, according to the center’s statistics. That enormous gap is due in part to Apple’s decision not to scan for such material, citing the privacy of its users.
this can be done without telling anyone because the code isn't open source.
Apple are being uncharacteristically open about what they're doing.

What you're seeing is a very common design pattern -- a centered content column. But in this case the "cards" scroll horizontally, so they continue to the right. Or the left:
You can find this design pattern everywhere. Like on this very website:
...it's not weird. It's an extremely common design pattern that's over a decade old.
Have you never maximized your browser on any popular website before? Very confused how you folks think this is new or unique to Apple. The only difference is Apple's Store page has "cards" that scroll horizontally across the width...but it's the same centered column:
Apple should gradient those carousels out, or balance them with a background in some way. Looks silly otherwise, like someone forgot to finish the job.
I’ve really never seen such shrieking violets butthurt about web design.
