@aral spoken like a true politician, with a matching, completely unrelated comparison, that's supposed to conclude the argument.
What threads do we (our phones) face? Physical theft; digital theft? Have you ever considered that over 50% of the world population, live under oppressive governments, that have all resources, to access your phone?
Not to mention that most of these tools, find their way online - so even if I can't access your stuff today, I'll likely tomorrow.
@aral so instead of hailing a $1200 device as more secure (which by the way, some 25% of the world population cannot afford in a lifetime); we should instead raise awareness of howto better protect yourself; or at least, be more aware what happens with your data - and maybe, not to trust your phone to keep it "safe" for you.
So yeah, maybe for an API, you can create a "thread model"; but with our phones, this is a completely different issue.
@franz Yep, I’m a politican, Franz. You really managed to capture my essence. Congratulations, man. As you were…
