    i've ditched Chrome like a month ago now, I'm now using Firefox on Windows and Safari on Mac exclusively. it's been nice.

    you realize a huge part of Apple's appeal is their respect for the privacy of their users? it would be a huge blow if they simply allow government apps to track location data.

    It is not sending the data. The tracking works with QR codes that you scan at every business. You can choose to share that.
     
    At the moment the app really is not working. I know many cases where one person in a household has a positive COVID test and the app installed but nobody else in the same house has been notified of a possible infection. Something needs to change as it is clearly not working.

    Actually they do allow that, they do not allow it for Apps based on Apple's developed tracing technology. For those Apps their is a design principal you have to follow to utilize that Apple technology, if you do not use that then you can do whatever you like that is allowed under the regular App Store terms and conditions.
     
    Our NZ tracing App uses none of the Apple or Google tracing technology and started with only QR Code scanning functionality, and it is a legal requirement for all business to have these on display. Proximity based Bluetooth tagging was added much later. Also you can actually use the App without creating an account, providing your name or any other details and the App itself stores all the data on the device itself for 60 days (was 31)

    since you are so picky, i'd go to a large electronics store that sells displays and just compare them in the store if they have them on display...

    Ashley MLP Fangirl got a reaction from Zulu-Cheese-Alpha-IV in Which Linux distro is the best?   
    well you can make a recommendation for that hardware. since OP has low ram, a distro that's light on ram would be best here, like Xubuntu.

    Ashley MLP Fangirl got a reaction from JLO64 in Update: The Pixel 5a will most likely be a US and Japan exclusive due to chip shortage   
    my guess is that this will be happening more often, especially with smaller manufacturers like google. they simply don't have the volume to justify getting the chips, like Apple does.

    You should be fine to use your system like this but beware after the 7 days it will force you to install the updates before you can pause again.
    There are workarounds to this but I'm not sure if they still work and they probably aren't great from a security perspective.

    no they don't need to remove the apps. you can compare the apps loaded by default.

    as if Samsung doesn't do that as well lmaooooo
     
    i can jailbreak it which makes all those arguments invalid, and that is a valid argument to use because andoid fans are always going on about rooting, which is effectively the same.
     
    there are loads of android phones with a locked bootloader as well.
