People who love Apple for its privacy-protecting ways should really try setting up an iPad from scratch these days. I think I basically had to give it a sample of my mum's blood before it was usable.

@mala Ditto for any Android device. Gotta have that Google account!

@natecull it was the point where it demanded her full address, with postcode before I could download any (free) app that amazed me

@mala !!!!!!!!

Okay that's just a BIT more invasive than Google Play.

@mala they don't claim to not data mine you, they are just like a jealous partner that wants to keep all the data to themselves. True privacy would permit pseudonymity or even anonymity.
