  1. I’m not sure that Google shuttering its consumer apps is a great thing for consumers. It just leaves us nothing at all but Facebook and Twitter, along with probably less functionality on Android. If the issue’s existed since 2015, I’d rather they came clean, admitted it, and FIXED it. But of course it’s cheaper just to shut it down.

    None of them are without fault or flaws, even Apple.

    And re: your other post this morning – I’m sorry I can’t come visit you. I’d probably throw my phone at someone and be arrested. Because although I have nothing at all to hide, I do try to protect confidentiality when it comes to work and friends. @#$% this “hand over your password” noise.

       The new law is appalling. I’m surprised it hasn’t merited much of a mention in our media. I’ve heard of something like that in the US but there’s no fine involved. We’re stupid enough to enshrine it into law and attempt to impose a fine which could well be subject to a challenge on international legal grounds (e.g. how far can the laws of this land compel a national of another to do something that offends the standards of that other country?). I wonder what impact this will have on our tourism.
