Google the Big Evil

Apple absolutely should be able to protect data from competitors. Just like Ford doesn't have to hand over data to GM. No other company would stand for it. Just because Google CHOSE to compete (well, copy) with Apple in terms of mobile OS, browser, OS, TV etc. doesn't mean the should get the keys to the kingdom. I used to love Google. Now, not so much. Did you know that YouTube Flash Video tries to take control of your computer's video cam and mic? Make sure you have not given Flash permission to do so. Right click a Flash component on a webpage and click settings. Make sure you have it set to 'deny' and you click the "remember" box.

Funny how Adobe and Google have screwed Apple and now Adobe's $3.5B acquisition of Macromedia Flash and Google's acquisition of AdMob now seem like an excessive waste of money?

Is "too much screen time" really a problem?
Yes -- smartphone addiction is ruining relationships.
Yes -- but primarily due to parents' failure to regulate kids' use.
Possibly -- long-term effects on health are not yet known.
Not really -- lack of self-discipline and good judgement are the problems.
No -- angst over "screen time" is just the latest overreaction to technology.
No -- what matters is the quality of content, not the time spent viewing it.
