It is relevant because Mark is a major lib and this is typical of libs.
Zuckerberg is not doing this out of an ideological desire to control peoples' lives because he's "liberal". He's doing it because his goal is to sell as much advertising as possible, and he does that by collecting as much information as possible from as many people as possible.
I hope so. Their coverage gives me serious pause anyway. I don't often go places that Verizon has coverage and they don't but still... I would like to hear good things about them so if anyone has other sources let us know!
I guess for those of us that purchase their own phone for $500-1000, we want it to last for a while (at least 5 years.)
How long the phone lasts is a separate question from whether new software will run on it. I would think one problem with the longevity of an iPhone would be the difficulty of replacing the battery. Some newer Android phones have the same issue.
It's true that you can't run the latest on the oldest hardware, but in cell phone terms 5 years is elderly, and 7.1.2 is not even a year old. As always, Android gives you more freedom to do what you want with your hardware, but honestly I think Apple is doing pretty well on this particular issue.
If you want to know why you have to upgrade to the latest iPhone to run the latest software every year,
I'm not a iPhone person, but isn't the latest OS available to devices that are several years old? I know for certain they offer OS upgrades for free to older devices (just don't know exactly how old). They don't put out a new OS and tell everyone they have to buy a new phone to get it.
