  • Is there any business that isn't kissing China's ass? It certainly isn't Google.
  • If you can name an alternative smartphone brand that doesn't kiss China's ass, I'm all ears.

    And no, not farking Librem 5.

    subby: OMG you guys, they're KISSING ASS!

    I aver that any non-EU European nation (that isn't Russia) is either too small or too British to do anything about it. They would have to accept their powerlessness even while they continue to give Apple incentives to remain affordable for their middle-middle and upper-middle class.

    Samsung has Taiwanese and PRC suppliers and partners, and of course sells its phones in the PRC--and right now they're desperately trying to recover from a declining presence in China. It would be delusional to think they refuse to follow Chinese import regulations.
  • Ya, apple better start looking for an exit strategy out of China before they get absorbed.

    Yea

    U dont want that one.  It runs an open source OS that isnt loaded with corporate spyware.

    Corporate Daddy would not be amused with you

    Which is not Linux.

    Only its kernel is Linux but has been highly modified by google.

    The other 80% is all google

    Oh no! I can't live without my smartphone! So therefore I must justify supporting the country supporting Russian child killers.

    Bottom line your Apple products are killing people in Ukraine by supporting a country that is subverting the will of the entire free world by buying Russian oil.

    It's fact. that other companies do it has nothing to do with the discussion. In this case YOUR choice is supporting it. That's the discussion.

    How would you know? It's open source, any corporation or government could assign an employee to insert a backdoor into some innocuous-seeming PR.

    Are you saying that Android phones aren't smartphones? I hope not because that's some weapons grade derp.

    True

    I didnt read the source code but it is available for anyone in the world to look at.
    And if its in the kernel- good luck trying to hide it from Torvalds and the kernel devs/maintainers.

    Things hidden in glass houses tend to be found......

    Devs at a company hiding backdoors in closed source would be trivial to do.

    Besides, i heard Tux and MS might be going on a honeymoon....

    No. I'm saying Google has their nose just as far up China's ass as any corporation. But way to jump to the dumbest interpretation of a comment, Derple.

    I'm open to the idea of a Linux phone. Just not one that costs $700, has 10 year old hardware, and contains some laptop computer parts.

    Until you realize how fast Linux is on older slower hardware.

    One of my desktops at home has a 2008 MB and a 2012 cpu.

    It runs LMDE 5 fast still. (Linux mint debian edition)

    Probably upgrade within year just to do it even though i dont need to.

    Thinking abt the new amd ryzens are making me restless.

    I don't care how quick the OS is if apps run like dogshiat. It's terrible, terrible justification for a scam phone.

    Linux is relatively new on phones.  its just a matter of time before Linux phones mature and run better than their bloatware android counterparts.

    that's what happened on my desktop.  i ran windows for a long time and once i went to Linux things got fast and stable.

    it didn't take long to forget about windows. Linux gave me my computer back.
