They don't give a shit?

The problem with USB is the S for serial. The connection always has to make space for other devices on the bus to talk and that really brings down maximum bandwitdh for any individual device. So while USB 2.0 hi-speed (remember that debacle) may have high bandwidth, the amount available for, e.g. a single drive, was much lower than the theoretical max.
Can you point me to some evidence that the iPhone is invading my privacy? Again, the Android literally can record my conversations without my knowledge--and I can't turn that off in the settings without violating my agreement with the telco and rooting the machine.
It's called the washing machine. Laundry is a task that took a fair amount of time per item and was really hard on cloths a century ago. 98% of that has been moved to a robot.
You could say I consented to Chrome being installed (it can't be uninstalled) but not connecting to that is the same as having an android device that is a brick.
"On the other hand, a lot of the 'control' over privacy in Apple products is directly in the hands of Apple, and there is no guarantee Apple will stay friendly."
Uh, all of the control is in Apple's hands, and I'd rather have the device that is currently friendly then the device that is currently taking a crap on me and laughing.
I knew of these but don't like them. It's really shitty to think that one would have to root the phone to get it to work at all correctly. I'm concerned about the security implications of installing non google play software and rooting the phone are also not trivial and I want to do things in my life other than fix a phone that was sent to me broken.
In other words, buying an iPhone is a more attractive option than this.

I'm an android user but I really hate the OS. About 1/4 of my apps (the ones I can't uninstall) require me to grant them the right to record voice without notifying me. It's really shitty. On the iPhone I'm in control of privacy, on Android, google is. But, I do use it because I pay a lot less for the service.
Try anyone with an Android phone. On the play store, every google app (and several others) require the ability to record audio and video without your consent--and unlike iOS, you can't adjust the privacy app by app, permission by permission. We all know iOS isn't perfect, but they are way ahead of Google on privacy.
I use Republic and the wifi is more for when you're parked at your house or office (as far as I can tell). I haven't had any problems with it, except if I receive a call right as I'm exiting wifi range it will take about 10 seconds to respond.
I use republic and I have no such problem. At work, I use a password, and home, I use a password. But it really doesn't matter, Republic charges me $10 per month (maybe $11 or $12 with taxes?) and I still get unlimited calls and texts. If I upgraded to 3G, I'd be paying $25 (I think just under $30 with taxes).
I've been 1 indexing so long I'm confused. I never have any issues 1-indixing. I do for(i; 1; length(list)), but if I was using 0 indexing I'd have to do for(i; 0; length(list) - 1), which is a -1. But I've never had to do a +1 while 1-indexing.
It's called "salt" and it's either a good or bad thing, depending on if you prefer fast development or low incidence of bugs.
There are people who have verified purchases swearing that they can tell the difference, many of them...
