Voortzetting van de discussie Finally BIOS update for Lenovo E540:
Of all manufacturers Apple makes the most closed source hardware AND software. Why is this bad? Because it takes away your control. Opensource is and was never about not paying for software. Opensource is all about having control over the software (and hardware) you use.
All Apple hard- and software is a big black box. You put something in, you get something out but what happens inside the box is a big mystery. You don’t know if/how the software is phoning home. (Well, don’t know IF? You can BET on it, Apple software always phones home) A simple here I am is not that bad you think, but you don’t know if the phone home is just a simple ‘here I am’. Apple is (like Facebook, Google and MS and a lot others) a MAJOR data miner for personal profiles. IMO this is risky, scary and highly unwanted.
That’s why I NEVER will use any Apple product. (it’s also why I don’t have a FB account and use my own mailserver, have Owncloud and not dropbox etc…)
