I don't use their browser.

I use Brave on my phone.

I have never agreed to their TOS and Privacy Notice to get online with my phone.

No, my provider is not samsung. and I have never signed up for samsung anything except to purchase a device. Perhaps the sales person accepted on my behalf? Don't know. But the update demanded I accept the TOS in order to use internet on my phone. Without accepting I simply am cut off from any internet including email. So I told them gfy.

Thanks for this thread. I had my updates turned off but I noticed there were two different update types. The second one was on. That is so odd because I had never seen that type of update before.

I have been expecting something from Apple. Google, Amazon, FB... all the players have been active over the last two months but Apple had been out of the news. Guess they were busy developing facial recognition.

This is another advantage of not using a cell phone.

Cell phones also lower immunity and increase hunger by slowing our intestinal cilia. They also contribute to slower spinal fluid and amyloid plaque build up which can affect the brain and the eyes.

Don't kid yourself.

Bullshit... You are being tracked six ways from Sunday... But keep telling yourself any lies that make you sleep better at night...


Same for @SkyCat ... and a good 50%+ of our members.... Noooo You are all too smart for that to ever happen to.


Whatever helps you sleep at night.

Fools.

Think for yourself

Are you able to interdict Microsoft's own operating system at the kernel level and prevent it from reading your files or using the microphone and camera?  I am.  Wink

Call me a "fool" if you like but I have been a software engineer for 40 years and I'm fairly sure I know what I am doing.

I know more about Windows than Microsoft does.  No jokes.

I never said I wasn't being tracked and listen into by those devices. I just said they can't add anything new to those old devices. That's all. I am not foolish enough to think those devices are not Trojan horses. I won't be buying anymore of them. Once the old devices dies or become obsolete where I can't use them for anything useful anymore, I won't be buying anymore Apple products or smart phones. Our government would have to go communist and force me to buy a new smart phone.

Microsoft doesn't seem to know too much. For example, they have locked me out of my own documents for 30 days as a punishment for someone else trying to hack my account.

If I used a cell phone, they could restore it quicker. The service desk person actually claimed we had a partnership agreement andit was my fault for not updating my home phone number when I moved!!

This is akin to being handcuffed and jailed for 30 days due to an expired parking meter.
