I don't understand why they're doing that publicly. Do they really think that people will side with Facebook over Apple when it comes to privacy disclosures?

How do you think Whatsapp would send a message to someone if it doesn't know who they are? Do you refuse the photo app's request to use your camera, too?

I haven't decided, but I think I'll be deleting the app. I originally started using it so I could send messages from overseas. That's easy enough to do now with my regular cell plan and/or apple...

I also recommend adding a day in wine country if you can. Possibly at the expense of Port Elizabeth, which I didn't care for. The Garden Route is a nice drive.

Moldova Wine Tours (Post-Covid)

With the light at the end of the tunnel that is a vaccine, I'm thinking ahead to how I'd like to spend my (second half of) 2021.

The Moldova wine region has been on my list for some time, but it's...

Reduced competition is never in the consumer's interest, but it may be water under the bridge as our governments already allowed reduction to just three trans-Atlantic competitors.

Well, that also varies a bit by product. Pfizer's vaccine is two shots and requires storage at something like -80C. That really restricts what facilities are capable of receiving/handling the...

The study proved nothing regarding safety on a flight vs at home because the environment on your flight will almost certainly never be like the DoD's test environment.
