We've been using FileVault 2, the full disk encryption version, since the day it came out. No problems. In fact, it's mandated at my company, across the hundreds of Macs.

The first version had problems. But like when they implemented full device encryption on iPhone 3GS - first version had problems. From iPhone 4 onwards, full device encryption is built in, and works just fine.

I just had a motherboard replaced in year four (2012 retina 15"), free, outside of AppleCare extended warranty period.

But, don't worry, we've gotta let the haters claim that Apple products suck, and Apple's treatment of customers suck, even though they don't own or use Apple products.

Apparently giving the user a choice, and letting users decide where they want the privacy/functionality bar to set is not something your mentality can deal with.

Why shouldn't I decided whether I want telemetry or not? Why shouldn't I decide whether I want to send a bug report or not?

Fuck you and your high horse.

Wow, you paid shills are really something. A knock off charger electrocutes someone, and it's Apple's fault, because there's an iPhone in there. It's electricity man. It takes the path of least resistance. Do you also blame Apple for lightning strikes because of their lightning cables?

...if you think about the ear phone situation. The new macs still have a 3.5mm jack for ear phones and *no special wireless chip.* Hence there are no ear phones which will work with both your mac an your iPhone..

Bluetooth in iPhones is now a special wireless chip? And doesn't exist on MacBooks? Things you learn from random idiots from Slashdot.
