Comment And it will never happen (Score 1) 210

Win10 was designed *from the ground up* with telemetry and spayware/malware/whathaveyou in mind.

You will never get them to "turn it off", at best you'll get "minimal" and it will require 3rd parties to fix (if they can, closed source and all that)

Why use it to begin with, if you have the option, use anything else, but not Win10.

Diminishing returns.
Do what maximizes profits, ignore the rest.
Considering the cash Apple has, they're on the right track.
Note: I don't agree with said track, but the edge users don't justify the costs involved, so out they go.

Business 101: Cash is king.
And as long as Apple makes bucketloads of cash from their current iProducts, they will. When it stops, they will re-evaluate where they are in the world, but not before then.

Comment It's not about the money (Score 1) 406

It's about the power, and the ability to stay in the limelight and feed ones ego.
Every met anyone disgustingly rich? I mean Jeff Bezos level rich? I have. Dirtbags, all of them. Yes, they might put on a friendly face, but everything they do has an ulterior motive behind it.
Sooner or later a 100 million/yr salary stops being about the money, and starts being about the power you can wield with that kind of money.
*That's* why they continue to work. Power, self-serving, and ego. Anyone who says otherwise is selling you something
