RIP 4th Amendment

Apple wins much kudos for their stance on privacy. Google, on the other hand, is evil.

I say this as someone who is super-annoyed at Apple because if I upgrade my iphone from the 6s I can’t have a headphone jack which I really want and other things being equal would switch to android to keep my headphone jack. But I like unbreakable encryption a lot. Whatdo.

All while the government is unwilling to protect us from internet monopolies and price gouging. Which is one of the few things government should interfere with the market for.

  1. I upgraded to an iPhone 7 (from a 5S) somewhat reluctantly. The lack of a headphone jack hasn’t been as annoying as I thought it would be, at least in my setup. I just keep an adapter attached to the headphones I normally use. Most annoying bit is not being able to charge and listen at the same time (the splitters available don’t appear to actually work).

    I’m *not* looking forward to the eventual upgrade to Face ID. I like being able to unlock my phone while it’s sitting on my desk or lap, and not having to scan my face with it.
