who do you trust more with your privacy and personal data?

Apple or Google?

"Neither" is not allowed 😝 I'm curious as to which one is more trusted

@snowdusk_ yeah, Apple seems be be making a go out of just taking your money directly rather than trying to find sneaky ways to monetize you. Deploying things like encryption, sane browser behavior and USB ports that shut down to thwart law enforcement overreach.

I’m extracting myself from Google’s ecosystem but that doesn’t mean I’m blindly moving to iCloud et al. I’m actually replacing things like online storage with encrypted usb drives and streaming music with local MP3s.


@sconlan @snowdusk_
Apple makes 99% of its revenue by selling products and services to people, and almost zero with advertising.
Google makes 99% of its revenue thanks to tracking and behavioral advertising. And Alphabet (its parent company) also makes money by selling technology to the Army, to bomb innocent people in the Middle East...
And as Sean said, protecting people's privacy is a competitive advantage for Apple...
