    Frick man, this is a sad day for freeing phones, people are going to use the false prophet.

      There is no true prophet in mobile space. In computing space overall, i'd even say. RISC-V is best we get and it's literally infancy-tier.

        Literally a nothingburger. The core architecture does not matter. You still need the rest of the SoC, and that's not going to be open, ever.

          Yea, unless someone with really deep pockets adopts risc-v and truly commits to open tech all the way there is no hope.

            Unlikely, they'd have to buy something like Synopsys for all the IP needed, and since they are acquiring Ansys for $35B it's not going to happen. It'd take at least 1/3rd of Bezos' net worth to do.

      The big problem will be when Epic convinces kids to install their Tencent malware on phones, and then parents get upset over strange charges they didn't approve, and try to use Apple customer service. They're going to find out that they have to contact some fly-by-night Chinese payment handler that got spun up specifically for that, and have a hell of a time getting any payments reversed.

      The other question this raises is how are walled garden computers with a phone form factor distinct legally from walled garden platforms in other form factors? Why does this apply to computers sold as "phones", but not computers sold as "consoles"?

        Not a problem. Chargeback is a thing in civilized countries.

          Not a real solution. Regulators need to really look at companies using questionable payment handlers that charge abnormally low fees.

            Cardholders have been known to retaliate against their customers who perform chargebacks.

        Maybe instead of making a walled garden out of everything we should start teaching people how to use computers instead of remaining tech illiterate for the rest of their lives.

          They don't WANT people to know how to use computers because then they want control and privacy and rights and shit

          At current tech levels it's mildly unfeasible. Our civilization relies on experts to move forward, being a leading expert in a field often means sacrificing a lot of other domains knowledge. This is why instead of promoting tech literacy humanity is so hyped about AI, cause it will allow to offload alarmingly increasing amount of technically intense tasks (yes, understanding how to write simple string parser scripts is intense for non experts) to machine.

            You don't need to understand everything, just the basics. like what an OS is, what a gigabyte is and what a GUI means. you don't need a CS degree for that.
            I mean for fricks sake people can't even measure their home internet speed! because they have no idea what 50megabits per second means, but they're not necessarily dumb as clearly know what 100 miles per hour means yet they don't fully understand how their cars work, to use a different analogy.

        When the day comes apple is force to allow other OSes to run on their phone that's when the law has been implemented correctly.

        >the big problem will be when

        No, the big problem is that corporations are allowed to behave like that at all, on any platform. It not being forced on apple doesn't make it not a problem. The entire mobile development field is 15 years behind or more because of those semitic fricks doing whatever they want setting the standard

      Soon iPhones will be gimped hardware-wise in the EU.
      Samsung is already doing it, but from other reasons.

      This is one of the worst decisions ever, Apple brand will be tarnished forever. We will now have virus, miners,illegal torrenting and illegal porn AI app on iphones. Apple should sue the EU.

    Americans are subservient fat cattle, the best consumers around, if you are a corporation you can use them and abuse them and they will beg for more of your corporate slop, you can literally sell their own feces back to them and they will buy it. American is a giant farm where Americans roam, corporations pay admission fee so they can abuse the Americans.
