    I'm a bit appalled that no one is talking about Apple's upcoming spyware OS ! Why is that, are they supposed to be an untouchable privacy company? Or is it just jingoism because they are a US company? There seems to be double standards here. Microsoft and Google are US companies too and get flak for this stuff. So let me present some info on why you shouldn't trust Apple primarily based on their disingenuous stance on privacy!

    Nice price... @McBigots: you can't complain, everything is at the highest possible price, so you can continue to brag about being the top dog in all respects, as always, a proper snobbery galore at your fingertips, as it were...

    I remember, long ago, there was a comparison report on "leaking data" on all 3 major OS's - and theirs' was no exception, soooo.... Just a wee bit more, that's it, not to worry, nothing really new under the Sun...

    Besides, "what have you got to hide?!?" :rolleyes:
