Comment And it will never happen (Score 1) 211

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.
