    The thing is this is an entire operating system rather than a single app, from a company that pretends to be better about this than Google and Microsoft.

    The difference is that you do know Discord is doing this while you don't know that macOS is. In fact, you trust macOS to do the opposite, since it's the software running the entire show.
     
    Discord is just an app. We know it's not private. macOS meanwhile is the entire operating system. Discord doesn't know what apps you're running or how long it's open unless it's a game or you tell it to recognize this app. macOS does, and it reports this back to Apple, even if you tell it not to. That's what the difference is.

    Did anyone really trust that Apple did what they claimed and respected the privacy of customers? Cause I sure as hell didn't, and I'm not surprised by this.

    People don't like being told what to do, I guess, even if it's something that would help everyone. It's actually awful.

    There's still the Georgia senate races, but that goes beyond the scope of this thread.
     
    I would like to see things get under control. I'd like to see my friends again.

    President-elect Joe Biden is forming a COVID task force to combat and contain the spread of COVID already.

    I've heard things about there being another strain detected in Houston, TX, so yeah. There's gonna be different strains of COVID too.
     
    And yeah, I'm gonna agree with the theory that we'll need yearly immunizations to keep COVID under control. That's how it works with other diseases caused by coronaviruses.

    Study in the UK basically confirms it. Antibodies drop a few months after infection, allowing repeated COVID infections.

    Don't think that herd immunity is possible with COVID.

    I know someone who's been reinfected after 3 other family members in their house tested positive. It's entirely possible that it does work like other coronaviruses and will require yearly immunizations to it to ward it off.
     
    There are still cases of SARS and MERS, even though the pandemics those caused are long over. Human immunity to coronaviruses isn't permanent like it is with some other viruses.
     
    PragerU is best described as "conservative American propaganda", but that's beyond the scope of this thread. Either way, it's best to dismiss them as an actual source.

    But they included a Lightning to USB-C cable! So you can plug it into the charging brick you already got!

    ...that has a USB-A port on it, meaning you can't actually use it. Oops.
