Apple is no good. If you happen to have Apple "smartphone", do not upgrade to another Apple phone. If you use any Apple related services, stop using these services. In general, boycott anything Apple related. Just a logical attitude.
And go to what?.....
Maybe Trump will get into social media and cellular provider services, under a false name and company. Do what they do and limit speech to only conservative view point. Then cable network??
The only phone I've used, use and will use is a basic flip (so called "dumb") phone, so I can actually talk to people, if necessary.I could easily go back to a flip phone. Land line would be tough.
I won't defend Apple's actions on the parler front; but, do you seriously think any GOOGLE/Alphabet phone and services is actually "better" than Apple? I will never have another Google device; very skeptical of MSFT, and now a lot more skeptical of Apple. But of those 3, Apple is the least of your concern.Apple is no good.

I don’t know much about computers but I stumbled on this a little bit ago. This phone and a laptop seem intriguing

Even Linux may be "infected" now that it's been released that Huawai has apparently (from what somebody else posted and other news) been putting things in as well.
There is no "truly" secure system unless you just first, load up the OS (be it any of them), completely disconnect from the internet, go in, destroy wireless transceivers (wi-fi and bluetooth) , and then use your computer again like it was 1985. Heck, maybe I'll dust off that old 386SX in my garage I save for posterity. Just needs a new clock battery.
I don’t who you are, but you scare the shit out of me, and make me medium bendable at the same time! Keep up the good work, you spooky basterd!Hi,
There is nothing on the planet that transmits data that cannot be hijacked by .gov types...nothing no matter what OS, make, model, manufacture, etc etc etc.
If you transmit data, it can absolutely be hijacked.
No, I was replying to Kickin45 specifically who said “Your life is on your phone. Your happiness is on your phone.”Has zero to do with happiness its supporting your enemy with a spy device on you 24/7.
I’ve got a ton of picture on my phone that I’d hate to lose. But, life would go on. And, I periodically print out the ones that I
to keep. It houses my contacts (both professional amd personal) and it would be a pain in the ass if they were wiped. But, life would go on.
Absolutely, and I do. But, nothing beats good old fashioned paper. Anyone remember Rolodex? If my house went up in flames tomorrow, I’d grab a binder of documents and a couple of picture albums. All staged within easy reach as I headed out the door. I’ll let the insurance company deal with the rest...I'm assuming you understand that you can copy all your pictures, and contacts over to a computer (that you own and control), at any time, for safe keeping?
Most likely you could also copy the rest of your data over off the phone as well.
I am a computer geek (to the extreme). I always try to look 3 moves ahead.
Trump was banned from Twitter and Facebook (and other platforms). His next move was to use a different service for communicating.
He talked like he would go to Parler. Apple and Android "controllers" Google yanked the Parler application from their stores, because parler refused to ban not just the president, but dozens of other conservative voices, some who had condemned the D.C. Capitol hill event. The bans were never JUST about preventing "inciting and violent words". Then, several geeks pointed out you could get to Parler without using an "App", just by using the web browser on the phones, and going to the webpage for Parler. Then Amazon's "Amazon Web Service Cloud" drew a line in the sand. They made the same demand of Parler, or they would remove the Parler Website from their servers. This would reduce the private company Parler to having NO way to reach it, even from Desktop PC. Parler is talking about moving to different servers. They get shut off at midnight tonight.
What will be the next move? If they do find another hosting company, you know the big players will try to crush whoever hosts them.
If that does not work, what then?
"Someone" will "pollute" the DNS servers. What does a DNS server do? It translates easy to understand names like WWW.amazon.com to an IP address (such as 184.108.40.206). Your computer actually only understands IP addresses, the human-readable name is just for the Human's benefit. If your computer cannot get an IP address from the DNS server, it cannot connect to that website.
If this does not trigger the biggest Antitrust suit in American History, then there is no justice to be found anymore.
