No more spying.

I love when these companies blatantly lie about not spying on you

Aa, 02 Aug 2019Google does not give a single fuck about your privacy.Then you may as well say Apple is worse than Google. Especially since Apple was caught recently with contractors listening to Siri recordings, but Apple doesn't even have an opt out option for its customers. At least Google Assistant customers have an option to opt out of your data being used. Apple has no such options. I guess that's because Apple didn't expect to get caught (again).

Is there any fool that still believes in Apple's privacy and security crap that they like to shovel?

Just make a higher-priced android devices with no Google services and see how many people would buy them. That certainly goes for apple as well, make ones that are "offline" with no data leaks to apple.

Even though this concept is ridiculous, it's certainly better than having my life shared with tons of advertisers.

If google did that... no one care, they get some warning from EU and maybe they pay few bucks as "punishment" and thats it.
If Huawei or Samsung would do that they would ban everything and everyone and call it "Worst Leak of Private Data in History of Internet"
