@Gargron question: does Mastodon surface an RSS feed of the toots I have favourited on my account?
Tim Cook did an interview with Vice where he emphasized that in China, data is encrypted the same as in the US, implying that Chinese users' data is as well protected.
This is completely disingenuous, because what he isn't saying is that Apple handed the keys over to a Chinese company that is part run by the provincial government. So in practice, Chinese users' data is absolutely not protected.
At some point, there's functionally no difference between enabling exploitative incentives, harmful behavior, and societal degradation vicariously through the products and services we create and actually going out and committing those acts ourselves
Software engineers in particular are masters of deflecting responsibility for the things we create
That's not something to be proud of
There's a lot of hand wringing about Marzipan given its state in Mojave, and indeed if this is how Apple ships the framework to developers next year that would be terrible. But I think they spent all their time on getting fundamentals to just work in macOS and the next release is going to address a lot of the UI carelessness and inconsistencies.
But if stuff like date pickers don't look perfectly native in Mojave apps next year, that's cause for alarm.
