Congrats Apple. We’ll deserved.

And it’s important to note, these devices are privacy-forward devices. Without Apple, we would live in a world where Zuck and China and Korea and faceless data brokers and Google would know everything about everyone.

Now Apple is close to 25% of the world's population owning an Apple device. It's mind-boggling.
I highly doubt that. I'd be more than willing to bet it's closer to 10% given how many people have more than one device and how unaffordable Apple devices are for a large percentage of the world's population. Doesn't make it any less impressive however.

I remember when Steve Jobs said he'd be happy if iPhone captured 1% of the US mobile phone market. Now Apple is close to 25% of the world's population owning an Apple device. It's mind-boggling.

Nah, every time I encounter that rubbish dialog:

“Ask not to allow”
“Allow”

I know that the whole privacy thing is just another marketing ploy. Yea, I feel safer with Apple but I don’t think they are as innocent as people want to believe.
